    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    The fact there are people that are willing to pay $400 (myself included), why should the seller drop the price? The dude is entitled to earn a maximum profit too you know. If no one bites, then he'll lower the price. As the previous poster eluded to, shipping across the Pacific isn't...

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    I made an offer of $383 and it was auto-rejected. I guess he has a buy-it-now-reserve-price already preset. At $383+, I'd rather get it from the dreamseller, as he uses a faster shipping option.

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    Its still under speculation whether its true 10bit vs 8bit+FRC. Still, even if it is an 8bit panel, unless you're doing hardcore photography work, people probably can't tell the difference.

    LCD Televisions with 4:4:4 Subsampling and low Input Lag.

    Yeah, I got the catleap, and I don't think it has an OSD. If you look at the review here: http://blog.danawa.com/prod/community/ProdBoardView.php?blogSection=4&prod_c=1518235&nSeq=2064702&nBlogCateSeq1=28&sTab=28, there's some korean text that translates into... "OSD also another product I'm...

    Damnit Sjetski, you had to open your mouth about the Shimian/Catleap. That "itch" came back and now I'm $440 in the hole :D

    LCD Televisions with 4:4:4 Subsampling and low Input Lag.

    I wonder if the defective sets you've been getting is caused by shoddy Dynex quality, or by rough handling by the delivery guys, or maybe even both (cold weather makes crappy solder points brittle, and sudden impacts would cause joints to become loose). Given how the UPS/Fedex guys in my area...

    Dang, wish I read about the price drop earlier as I would've snagged a few. BB online is apparently out of stock (can't do the shipping option) and none of my local BBs have it.

    This is an ancient site, and there isn't a Westinghouse section, but the codes from the other brands might work, http://www.riddledtv.com/forums/tv-service-menu-codes-f13.html?t=316

    LCD Televisions with 4:4:4 Subsampling and low Input Lag.

    Racer_J, I hope you're not skipping work just so you can grace us with all your TV testing :p Your input lag results are surprising. ~32-74ms (2-5 frames) is unusually high for a cheapo TV like this. Did you run your lag test at 1080p/60 resolution? And is all the post-processing junk...

    LCD Televisions with 4:4:4 Subsampling and low Input Lag.

    Very impressive work, Racer_J. As far as I'm concerned, based on all your excellent photographic proof, I would say the Dynex successfully renders 4:4:4. Specifically, red pixels aren't "smudged" on the belle-nuit and bspvette tests, and there's very little (if any?) text fringing on those...

    LCD Televisions with 4:4:4 Subsampling and low Input Lag.

    I don't think its 100% absolutely confirmed, but I've been following the LK450 thread that Sjetski linked to for a few months. And I don't recall reading any posts about a *VA panel on 42+" sets. Edit: Nevermind. I take it back, there's one report of a 42" VA...

    7970 Purchasing Thread

    *Unofficially*, I don't think Sapphire cares whether you're the original owner or not. I RMA'd a second-hand Sapphire 6970 back in December and it was a piece of cake... After sending in the initial RMA paperwork, the RMA people asked for a purchase invoice, but I didn't have one. Because...

    I would just exchange it back with Amazon -- much less headache. And I believe all 42" and 47" LK450's are s-ips panels. Its only the 32" and 37" that have the lottery.

    LCD Televisions with 4:4:4 Subsampling and low Input Lag.

    If you don't have your eyes on a particular set, you could always scour for "open-box" TVs for the sole purpose of testing. Its what I did during my 2010 TV search for a perfect PC monitor (went through 7 different TVs until I found the one that met my criteria). I'm assuming there really...

    Monitor for sensitive eyes

    Try disabling ClearType, that might help out with the font issues. And you could also try some bias lighting. It'll help with eye fatigue and improve contrast perception.
