Can you comment on the OSD controls? Only brightness can be controlled ?? What does the manual say?POWER BRICK CONCERN / QUESTION TO DCSAMSUNGMALL
Also, I'm concerned about this crossover power brick, not because of the ground so much (I'm plugging my monitor into a UPS anyway), but rather because of the long term reprecutions of plugging in a 220/230V power brick into a 110/120V AC outlet . There's a reason they make power bricks that are dual voltage. The part I find confusing is that the power brick does say that it is 50Hz and 60Hz capable. Typically 50Hz is used with 230V and 60Hz with 120V, but honestly I am not at all an expert on electricity. I will send the dcsamsungmall guy an email to look into this with the manufacturer.
Ok I just found the technical specifications for the power brick that shipped with SimpleTech's Crossover. ****Download the 6 page powerbrick (FPS0120-05A) technical specifications PDF here ****
. Unfortunately, it still doesn't really answer my questions above as 80% of the content is in korean or whatever asian language. Will email dcsamsungmallHere's the email I just sent him:
Dear dcsamsungmall,It seems you are selling many of these monitors to USA & Canada. I know because I learned about it on an internet forum. Recently some people have been having problems with these monitors just stop working and we are wondering if this is because of the power brick that it ships with - Picture:http://img534.imageshack.us/img534/4660/dsc0785.pngIn
USA & Canada the voltage is 110-120V, but the power brick shows 220V. Can you please inquire with the manufacturer if it is safe to connect this power adapter to 120V or if this could cause problems with the monitor or even cause a fire?If the manufacturer says we should not run it at 110-120V, can you please ask for exact specifications of power adapter, ideally if you have a URL of a model number we can buy only to replace it? Thanks in advance!
