I went with the Crossover. Mine should be here Wednesday or Thursday. It says, expected Thursday, but it's 7 AM and it's a 30 minute drive away at the sorting facility from my house. I imagine, they might bump it up to Wednesday soon, as well, it says 1-3 day shipping....so if it got here Tomorrow, that'd be day 3 in my eyes.
Monday = day 1, Tuesday = 2 day, Wednesday = Day 3. That is how I believe it to be.
Based on all reviews I read;
Crossover has less chances of blacklight bleeding, they ONLY accept 3 dead / stuck pixels, and the stand is MUCH better, as are the parts supposedly from someone who took it apart found the soldering and wiring was much cleaner.
Also, about 35 % of people whom bought Crossovers found they had a A+ panel, not A-.
Of course, it's luck of the draw with ANY of the Korean monitors.
But there is a reason why the Crossover commands a 50$ lead. Well, for one, it uses steel instead of plastic in many of it's parts, the stand is hard plastic + metal instead of the Catleaps rather cheap stand which most replace with a 30-50$ stand anyways!
So to me! Buying the Crossover wasn't really spending more...I'd have to order a new stand off of Monoprice for 30$ + 6-7$ shipping and then install the damn thing. Or I could pay 55$ on Newegg for a really nice mount that would be along the lines of the one on the Crossover.
So to save myself time, and a little money, I went Crossover. I also feel really good about Crossover, just the logo, the reviews.
As I said it's luck of the draw with ANY of these monitors...but Crossover, out of the brands release so far, seems to command a high quality product, but again, that is the 50$ Premium. Also, they don't OC at all. Most Catleaps don't OC any more, but alot of them can do 65-67hz, while Crossover can do none.
