There are two of these in compatible units - this is the TCON to the panel connector. Each are roughly 2" wide (96 pin connectors).

Makes me think that there was some kind of voltage surge that happened affecting both monitors - they're plugged into the same outlet. I also tried different DVI cables.

I was thinking about getting new PCB boards for the monitors, but for $150 more apiece I could just get new monitors.

Yes, I'm looking at this as an excuse to get a 144hz 1440p monitor biggrin.gif

For anyone wanting to overclock their Achieva Shimian, check out this listing on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/LG-IPS-27-Overclockable-LM270WQ1-PCBs-with-Cables/162134402537. I bought one and installed it in my Achieva Shimian QH270-Lite. Prior to installing the new PCBs I was only able to overclock to 64Hz. Now I am able to overclock to 117Hz stable with modified timings (LCD reduced in CRU but with vertical back porch set to 4). Above about 458MHz pixed clock I start getting flickering and artifacts. I was hoping to get 120Hz stable, but I'm happy with 117Hz. I backed off to 110Hz for normal usage so that the new PCBs will hopefully last.

I wish I would have discovered this before buying a new Crossover WQHD 2795QHD. Now to decide which one to sell...

I've had mine for a few years now, still an excellent monitor.

I'll be in Seoul next week for work, and plan on purchasing a couple more of these for a triple monitor setup.

So I picked up two more of these from the Yongsan Electronics Market in Seoul (about $106 each), and they make a pretty sweet triple-monitor setup.

Can anyone here recommend a triple monitor stand? I've heard good things about the ErgoTech triple monitor stand with telescoping arms, but one of the reviews I watched said that 27 inch monitors BARELY fit (clamps actually hang a little of the sides of the arms).
