PLEASE NOTE THESE THOUGHTS ARE MY OWN AND ON MY OWN EXPERIENCE WHEN PURCHASING THIS MONITOR. Ok here we go; Ordered: ★Perfect Pixel ★ QH270-Lite ★ ShiMian 27" QHD 16:9 DVI-D Wide 2560x1440 Monitor Perfect Pixel. Tested OK. No dead Pixels 110~240V 50/60 This was ordered from ta_planet Price & Customs: I paid $375.90 US Dollars which equated to £231.51 GBP. Included shipping. There was an invoice on the from which stated the value as $175.00 USD. It did not denote it as a gift it actually stated LCD monitor. I can only assume this must be below or on the customs limit as I have had NO ADDITIONAL CHARGES. Time Scale: Ordered on 24/4/12 and received 30/4/12 so that was 6 days inc a weekend. Packaging: The screen arrived in a standard monitor box as you would expect from any manufacturer. No additional packaging and or covering. See pictures below; The monitor came with a small sticker attached. It stated that it was tested and Pixel Perfect. It is hand written and signed. See picture; Build Quality: The whole screen is of a perfectly acceptable quality. The stand attaches using 2 screws that wound in straight and locked firmly. It is sturdy, everything is squared up and level. The panel sits tight in the case and the overall unit is solid. There are non functioning buttons on the rear (with the exception of the power button obviously). There are also speaker holes but again are not installed on this version. This is everything expected from this model. See pictures below; Setup & Turn On: Unfortunately no UK 3-Pin kettle lead was supplied. An EU 2-Pin was however. This is a shame but not really an issue in my opinion. The power pack and DVI-D lead were in perfect condition and plugged in without issue. I ensured that the DVI-D lead was screwed into the monitor using the usual fixing screws. I switched the monitor on first then the PC. The system booted up and displayed everything perfectly. My previous monitor was a BenQ G2420 which was max at 1920*1080. My video card recognised the monitor max resolution and automatically set it to 2560*1440. Windows 7 sees the monitor correctly as QHD270. My Video card is a AMD HD7750. See picture; Image Quality: This is obviously very subjective and as I have no test equipment I cannot really do too much however it is perfectly acceptable and looks no different to my BenQ. I have tried some videos and games, and it all looks good to me. The refresh rate is set to 60Hz and I confirmed this with 'Refresh Rate Multitool'. I have not tried to OC it and do not intend to as I am happy with this rate. See picture; Dead Pixels: Now when I ordered this I half expected it to be pixel perfect and half expected it to have maybe 1 or 2 despite the title of the sale. So do I have any? Yes, 1 it is in the top left of the screen, around 4cm horizontal in and 2cm vertically down. Am I disappointed? Honestly, no I am not. Why? because I cannot see it unless the screen is a plain colour and I really look for it. In videos, games, browsing etc it cannot be seen in regular use. Conclusion: Overall I am ecstatic with this purchase. It fulfils everything I wanted from it. I wanted a nice looking (ok this is subjective), 2560*1440 monitor that was on par with or greater than my current monitor and I wanted it at a sensible price. Now for me this was achieved and I can live with the 1 dead pixel issue. Now I have no idea how colour accurate this monitor is nor its input lag. However the colours look fine to me, nothing out of the ordinary and there appears to be no lag when playing games. No ghosting or back light bleed. If I were a graphic artist or something that required perfection then this may not be a good choice.... but that is not to say it is not one, I just have no way of testing for you. If anyone has any queries or wants me to try anything I will try to accommodate as best possible. Regards, Dan.
