I know the 220 'works' with a standard power cable, but I didn't know if either a converter of a 110V power brick was recommended to avoid excess heat/burn out.
Also, a similar question to the dual dvi cord coming with these monitors. I see a lot of people swapping out for aftermarket ones. Is it necessary, or kind of a wait and see how the one I receive performs?

Most sellers will specify they ship a brick that takes 110-240, 190-240, or 220-240 in the subtext on the search page.

If you're in america, don't risk supplying a 220V only adapter with 110V (unless you have a transformer). It causes more current draw, and doesn't guarantee proper voltage output, which could damage your components.

Bought a Catleap from pallascopi, the glass was shattered on the inside. He has yet to respond after 3 days.

Yeah, you should have really gone for the top rated sellers. I wouldn't trust anyone else with overseas on this kind of item.

Well, he is a top-rated seller. I wouldn't have bothered otherwise.

Hello everyone,

Since the last post was about problem with sellers, I wanted to post my experience with Red-cap on eBay. I must say that I am very impressed with Red-cap products and his level of customer service. Not knowing that Crossover made a 27" monitor that wasn't 2560x1440, I did a buy it now on the first one I saw that was in a matte finish. It was something like $380. Later I found out that it was a 1920x1080 monitor. I contacted Red-cap and told him that I mistakenly purchased the wrong monitor and wanted the higher resolution model instead. Without hesitation or any further prompting from me Red-Cap cancelled the transaction. I then purchased a Achieva Shimian QH270-LITE for less than $290. Even though he would have made more money forcing me to keep the monitor I had mistakenly purchased, he didn't and for that I am truly appreciative. The QH270-LITE I purchased was shipped out immediately and arrived on my doorstep in 3 days from Korea. Amazing speed! I gingerly removed the monitor from the packaging and set it up. It came with a Welltronics power brick which says that it can handle 110V. It appears to be good quality and is made in Korea, not China. With a deep breath, I powered it on, expecting some obvious defects on boot since the LG panels are supposed to be from A- batches. I was greeted by a beautiful canyon that I had downloaded from interfacelift in anticipation. Not ever having seen a an Apple Cinema Display and having worked on a Dell matte monitor for years I was blown away by the image. Glossy screens definitely look much more 3D under proper lighting conditions. Overwhelmed would be an understatement - it looked so good. I then started to do a full dead pixel check. I expected a few dead pixels since the price was so good and again, these are supposed to be A- panels. I ran the tests over and over and finally confirmed that the screen was perfect. No stuck pixels, no dead pixels. More importantly, no backlight bleed that I can detect with eyes alone (I was really worried about this one).

Supposedly red-cap checks all the monitors prior to shipping to make sure that they are functioning properly. I can't confirm if he did or not but I can say that he sent me a perfect monitor and for that I am truly grateful. The monitor is the best thing I've ever purchased for my PC and I am very, very picky about the things I buy, usually only buying the top of the line.

I have not purchased from the other sellers but Red-cap would be my seller of choice.

Glad you had a good experience. I have a Shimian QH270-Lite also. smile.gif

Hi guys.

I received my monitor (FSM-270YG) yesterday. With a dark background, the monitor has an area at the bottom-center that is blue-ish (see image below). Is this normal (and will fix itself over time) or is this a defect that I should complain about?



Thanks!

that's a pressure spot unfortunately . Can't be fixed.

It's created by applying to much pressure to an area of the screen, which leads to "pixel juice" bleeding all over the place.

Must be rough handling.
Shhh!

Since all the panels seem to be the same, is there a brand or model you guys recommend for a 27" monitor? Thanks.

Does anyone know of any buyers that still carry the IPSB model? It seems as though the larger sellers (red-cap, dream-seller, etc) have all changed the pictures inside the IPSB listings into IPSI.

The only sellers that still have the pictures of IPSB are from sellers I don't think anyone has purchased from (dhsummer, fasterkorea, etc).
