Yeah the multi's from bigclothcraft, what does the 'multi' part mean when regarding a Q270?
Multi has multiple inputs (D VI + HDMI) and suffers from high input lag due to the scaler

Ah I assumed as much about the inputs, although I'm not too happy about the increased latency, is there an exact value to the input lag ie 20ms? I tihnk it's a good compromise though for the scaler because I'll be playing my xbox on this aswell as my PC. Will the monitor scale my xbox to 2560x1440 or will it remain at 1920x1080? If it remains at 1920x1080 is it distorted or looks fine like any 27" 1920x1080. Thanks.

Bigclothcraft checks all of their monitors for defects before shipping for free and people here have had many good expereinces with them, but I also discovered another seller called Pallascospi, where it will arrive in 1-2 days. Reviews from that seller also appear to be good.

Decisions decisions... do I want to wait a day or two extra before the seller ships me ontop of the 3-5 listed shipping time? Or (for the most part) are chances good for getting a perfect monitor? If the extra day or two of checking it isn't working out, should I just go with the quicker seller?

I got mine from Pallascospi. No complaints, in fact it shipped from South Korea to my house in rural Missouri in only two days!

It does wobble when I type. But I type softly so it isn't too big a deal, it just about falls over when my roommate uses my PC though. Even trying to push the power button on it is enough to start some crazy wobbling.

I don't know the input lag for that type, but it does scale it to 1920x1080 and it will look fine. Like using a 27 inch 1080p tv/monitor.

Wow that doesn't sound too good. It sounds like kind of a pain to get the stand off of these.

It's not hard at all to get the stand off. Just follow the guide in the OP, and take your time. Remember that there are sensitive components and connections inside, and handle it accordingly. smile.gif

One more question. I want to avoid future problems with the stand so I want to get a VESA stand or wall mount for it. Here's what my desk looks like:

338

338

338

(Ignore that line in the center of the third picture. It's not even there when I look at the wall.)

So as you can see, my desk is against a corner. The space is a lot bigger than it looks, but I'm not sure if I have enough space for a 27" mounted on a wall because of the shelves above me. So I'd most likely go with a stand. I have a bad habit of shaking my legs- I don't think it's as serious as restless leg syndrome though. So I don't want the monitor shaking from me shaking the desk!

how did you have the location changed for delivery?

They left a note with a number i could call to have it moved. Also you can go to the homepage (my case being in denmark its) www.dhl.dk/2 i assume its the same for all countries, just www.dhl.com/2 etc.

Yah I was just looking at the guide. Seems a little nerve racking to do all that right away. Never really opened a monitor. Not that I couldn't do it just would prefer it to be a bit easier.
