Does anyone know of any active adapters that work for these Shimian QH270 monitors?

I tried a $10 Monoprice and a $30 VisionTek active DP > Dual Link DVI-D adapter and they did not work.

Please help.

Hey @Remmib -- I use this adapter to connect my Shimian to my Macbook Pro. It's expensive as hell for such a small thing... but I needed it for development work.

The Adapter itself is great -- works exactly as I needed it to.

EDIT:

I believe this is the DP to DVI-D equivalent of the one I have. Make sure to check the specs first though -- sorry, don't have time at the moment to comb through it!

Necro.

Anyone still using these bad boys? I was sure mine would've died by now, but it's still going strong at 110hz.

Got mine in April of 2012, still going strong but I just replaced it with a PG278Q... downgrading from IPS to TN was a horrible mistake.

Now I'm looking for a IPS 144hz G-Sync monitor to re-gain my former 100% sRGB glory that I had with the Shimian doh.gif

Hi, guys, I think I'm almost done with my overclock but I'm having just a little problem with a random horizontal red line here and there while playing video games and sometimes while watching videos, I wish someone could give me a tip with the timings, here are my setting and also a picture of the frame skip test, thank you.

Yep, I got my pair of IPS-B models from a fellow OCN member back in September, 2012 and they remain my main rig's primary monitors. I honestly can't think of a single thing to complain about with these monitors other than maybe the lack of DP connections. The LG IPS panels are outstanding even by today's standards with decent enough black levels, excellent color reproduction, and neither of mine have any dead pixels even now, after 6 years of daily usage. Plus, in my opinion, the IPS-B models I got are the most aesthetically pleasing of any of the Korean IPS monitors that were all the rage back at that time, with edge-to-edge tempered glass fronts that eliminate the plasticky and cheap look and feel of other more popular Korean IPS monitors from the time like the Catleap and Crossover.

I never tried nor had any interest in overclocking mine and I didn't even know the Shimians were overclockable until I read through this thread. For me, 60 Hz is plenty and suits my old OG Titans just fine with its 1440p resolution.
