If your reading this thread and your still deciding to buy an almost no-warranty monitor from the other side of the world, i can tell you it is worth it. I received my QH270-lite a few days ago, I am amazed by the quality, with no AG coating and the high resolution, everything looks crisp and clear. Its almost like having those phone AMOLED screen in 27inches. When you turn up the brightness to max, images looks so real, and games on this look so nice and sharp. AG coating is bad for screens, it has no place in the home computer. I dont care that bezel looks cheap and ugly, especially the back. The stand is very flimsy, but it makes the Shimian very light and thin.
I got it from Dream-seller, he is a very good seller, he checked it before it shipped, in the one week that i was waiting for it he sold 50 of these, that does not include all the other variants, so he is very busy seller.
It came with 1 white stuck pixel near the bottom, you only see it on a black background, is very hard to notice with a high pixel density.
When i plugged it onto my digital set-top box with a dvi-hdmi cable I got a black screen with flashing blue led, so you cant use it as a TV. Also it does not like the power cable been pulled out while its running, it goes to a black screen and the led flashes red, so don't do that. As for people complaining about the minimal controls, remember the apple displays only have a power button , no brightness buttons.
So buy it, if you don't like it sell on line locally for double the price, the only thing that comes close to this is the $800 Samsung 8series 27".
Im worried when apple finds out about this they will just destroy their rejected thunderbolt displays instead of selling them to Shimian.
