Link to our favorite seller on ebay: Shimian Monitors from Dream-Seller
Wendell grabbed an Achieva Shimian 27" 2560 x 1440 Monitor from Korea. After a few days with it he is ready to order several more. Here's the specs:
- Resolution: 2560 x 1440
- Contrast Ratio: 1000:1
- Brightness: 350 cd/m2
- Response Time: 6 ms
- Aspect Ratio: 16:9
- Model: QH270-lite
- Panel Type: IPS
- Video Inputs: Dual Link DVI
- LED Side Lit
The IPS panel is good for just about any angle. The light is a bit brighter on the sides due to the fact that it is side lit, not back lit. For $350 shipped there isn't much to complain about other than the glare:
The bezel is blurry because I was focusing on the glare. It can be pretty bad if you are shining lights on it or if the it is facing a window. If you are usinging it in a dark room it looks fine. It also worked perfectly in an office environment with overhead lights.
I snapped a few more pictures the other day. Check those out here.
Lastly, I know the title in the video says 17". The first time I rendered it as 2650x1440, lol. I decided to leave it. It's a 27" monster. I didn't feel like rendering for a third time!
