Irun 27 inch ZT-SH270QHD Korean Monitor review

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
I received this monitor on the 19th of December and I really didn't have high expectations from the beginning since I've never heard of 'irun' before But I am pleasantly surprised.

PROS
  • No backlight bleed/dead pixels
  • VESA mount point on the back so you can change out the stand with ease
  • No decals whatsoever except for an irun logo at the bottom
  • Same panel as other S. Korean monitors and looks identical to my premium Yamakasi Catleap
  • Stand does not wobble

CONS
  • The stand it comes with is a bit short so it may be shorter than your other monitors if you have multiple.
  • Speakers are much better than some other S. Korean panels but are not very high quality..


I'm really glad I got this and saved a bit of money and the seller BigClothCraft was very helpful and answered all my questions within a day. I purchased this exact display http://www.ebay.com/itm/130818857306?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

Waiting for mine to arrive smile.gif Been slightly concerned by the stand as it looks pretty cheap so it's comforting to hear that it's stable at least, even though it might be a bit on the short side. Will post some of my impressions when I get the screen.

I'm looking to buy an irun.

So how is it going with the one you guys have?

I was looking at the Shimian too, but with my reading of the shimian monitors club and seeing all the people that have problem with it. I 'm not sure if i want to test with these.

+ I know its not much and probably means nothing but the seller bigclothcraft is recommanding this one over all the other korean monitors.

To be honest I doubt there is much difference between all the different models and now that the prices have gone up also on the "irun" you might aswell go for the one you find better looking. I picked mine up because it costed me 340 USD instead of 400+ for a pixel perfect monitor. From all the positive feedback on eBay and here I can only say that the "irun" seems like a safe buy in terms of stability and component quality, atleast for now as we can't foresee problems that might occur further down the road.

The ebay seller (bigclothcraft) who sells a ton of these monitors, said that he's had the least amount of problems with them over the other brands. This, and the lower price was why I went with them.

The price has increased a bit since I bought it, so I'm guessing that it is true, and that the quality should be good. They probably checked ours out, and didn't notice many flaws (I'm hoping), and increased the price because of it and the demand. Mine arrive monday.

Just bought two of these. One for me and one for my friend. Mine worked just fine out of the box, but after upgrading to the latest NVidia drivers it just went into a startup loop. Downgrading solved that and hopefully NVidia will resolve the issue (since others seem to encounter issues with them). I have 2 weird pixels, but it's absolutely no problem. I drive it from the cheapest ASUS 210 graphics card.

My friends monitor died after a couple of minutes, so he had to "rip" it open (which was easy) and refit a couple of cables. Now everything is up and running.

Got both my Iruns today. I didn't pay for pixel perfect, but I got two monitors that work with no problems, and no dead pixels.

I have them on a dual monitor mount, so I can't comment on the stands. The black levels aren't near my Panasonic ST50, but these panels are way better than the 24" TN panels I had previously.

What a great deal, these monitors seem to be worth it. I could probably use a calibration profile though. It looks good out of the box, but I know it can probably get even better.

Forgot to mention, I didn't realize my AMD 6950 has 1 dual link DVI port, and one single link. I have to buy a mini DP to dual link adapter to get both working at the same time.
