I plasti dipped the bezel for my Shimian and it looks a lot nicer IMO smile.gif

Every time I wanted to turn it on or off I'd end up with fingerprints on the shiny bezel, and IMO the logo/bezel just looked cheap in general.

Used three very light coats and it came out great.

Question for the Shimian Owners. I have a 30" Dell 3007W monitor at 2560x1600. Looking to go to 3 a monitor setup and been reading the posts about the Shimian 270. Is going from 1600p to 1440p very noticeable? It looks like a hell of a lot cheaper sell my 30" Dell and get 3 27' Shimians rather than trying to procure 2 more Dell 3007's. Opinions please? Thanks

Hi guys,

I posted on the review thread but hope can get some more help here. I plugged the monitor with a Sony Vaio laptop by a HDVI-DVI cable and there was nothing on the monitor. Firstly, I didn't press the power button at the back, the small led light at the front was blinking blue, then I pressed the power button and the led was red solid. In both scenarios, my laptop can see the monitor in the ATI panel but cannot do anything.

You guys have any ideas? Thanks

I'm guessing your laptop doesn't have the necessary "Dual Link DVI" type of output?

Be honest, behind the facade of those things, the real priority is just screwing everyone over in the name of obscene profit & delaying any kind of backlash as long as possible. That's the real world.

I came across these monitors yesterday, spent almost all my time comparing the shimian, crossover and catleap. I finally bought a Shimian QH-270-lite (no speaker, no glass) I came across a great deal, $335 with free fedex shipping!! Same seller has another one but it's $350...Can't wait until next week for it to get here !!

Does this monitor support a VESA mount? Also is the main reason to get this over the catleaps and PCBanks the price?

My Shimian has been running fine since I got it (playing Civ 5 and Shogun:Total war 2 on it has been amazing, you get to see much more of the campaign map and battles, gorgeous)

The VESA mounting holes are on the back of the monitor which you can use without having to dismantle the bezel or anything.

I got the monitor with the glass, and I keep saying this, it looks like a giant ipad, love it.

Got my Shimian. As of now I can't find any dead/stuck pixels. The picture is amazing compared to my old BenQ.

Is everyone still using the stock power brick? Mine seems to be running ok on it but I am not sure about long term use.
