Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 98

post #971 of 3508
I read about this monitor on Anandtech. After going through reviews and checking with one of our suppliers in Korea, placed an for the IPSMS model (I need to connect my gaming system too) on 15th with red-cap and the monitor was shipped on 18th evening by EMS.

As per red-cap it should reach me in 4 to 6 days, but knowing how UAE Post works, can't be sure. Has anybody from Dubai ordered this monitor before?

Add me to the "ordered pixel perfect QH270-Lite from ta_planet, got a free upgrade to the model with speakers" club.

Wow, this monitor is an amazing value for the price. Just had to pull an extra AC cord out of the cable snakepit, plug it in to my existing DVI cable, and I'm up and running.

Probably the only complaint I have is the power button being on the back, with the annoying non-pressable front button teasing me. And that's a pretty darn minor complaint. smile.gif

Ordered Monday night, had it in Washington state at lunchtime today. Sweet.

it arrived like 3 days later.

Hi Queeuqeg,

I must say I'm super jealous for you right now. I had similiar problem over two months ago. I got a unit with bad PCB and it fried after a two minutes use. I tried get me a new PCB, but seller told me:

"Dear Valued Customer.
Inform sorry for the bad news.
monitor was on the phone with manufacturers.
The manufacturer's own purchasing regulations, the logic board can not buy
Sorry, but find another way.
Deliver bad news, I'm sorry.
Regards."

I guess what he told me was complete bulls**t, or that was truly the case at the time. I have the monitor sitting and waiting for a possible PCB, but over the time I have given up looking for one.

Now, if you could tell who was your seller, either here or PM to me, I could ask him directly for it and costs etc.

I just got my Achieva hooked up yesterday. I am using a new Sapphire AMD HD 5450 video card. Downloaded the latest drivers etc. Everytime I open up the Catalyst Control Center to adjust the brightness or whatever, I hear a click and the monitor goes blank. Rebooting doesn't seem to fix the problem either. I have to attach another monitor, then hot swap the DVI cable to get it to work again.

Extremely #$@% annoying. Anyone else have this problem?

He said it was redcap if you look... can I ask who told you that in your post though?
post #977 of 3508
Just pulled the trigger on one of these bad boys! Getting it from redcap for 289. I was thinking about going with dreamseller but redcaps's estimated delivery was earlier. Can't wait to get it and I really hope I don't have any issues with it.

Sorry about the bad news frown.gif

But it would be helpful to the forum for you to say who gave you the bad customer support thumb.gif

Just received my Achieva !! Shipped 2 days late , but still arrived within 5 days in Canada. 100$ fees with DHL for 2 screens... No dead pixels , everything working great !!
post #980 of 3508
Got mine yesterday and I'm loving it.
Ordered it late Monday night. Shipped Tuesday morning and Fedex attempted their first delivery to my house on Wednesday at 11:15 (which I missed doh.gif)!


It is perfect as far as pixels go. It does have a bit of BLB though and needs some color correction.

Any tips on getting these set up or corrected?
