Some questions about the vesa mount: i hear they only come with 2 screws?
What is the vesa mount standard? 100x100?
I chose the shimians over the crossover pivot to save the difference for monitor mounts. Can't find any cheap ones over this side of the world though =((
Red-cap shipped mine on June 8, 2012 and sent a notification only on June 10, 2012. Received the monitor on June 11!

Don't you guys really have any backlight bleeding problem?

Here is mine on medium brightness:

450

And on maximum brightness:

450

BTW: My top bezel also covers a few pixels (only visible if you display 1-2 pixel with frame around the screen though).

So far looks awesome!! Saw my tracking and it's at Incheon now. Hopefully it takes a good flight fast and then it's over to Singapore. Hopefully I'll get it tomorrow, or on friday, preferably tomorrow... Since I have an appointment on friday. Oh ****. I have an appointment on friday...NOoo.

As others have mentioned, the bleed in the bottom right corner at least is very common. I have 2 Korean panels, both have it there. Then both also have a much fainter bleed around the bottom left corner. Since I use almost minimum brightness, the backlight bleed's not noticeable in practical use.

Update: I had asked a question in this forum about why my monitor screen was jumping (flickering left to right at times).

I tried the monitor on three different computers along with THREE different 220v power adapters that came along with my friends Shimian Monitors. The problem was then narrowed down to a BAD monitor screen ( Bad monitor, no doubt after theirs screens work just fine with my adapter).

I bought mine off of ebay from TA Planet.

I contacted TA Planet ( within 14 days returns) and we exchanged a few emails about what the problem could be? Video cards, cables, 220v power adapter on US voltage.

I contacted TA Planet and he told me to return the monitor and he would ship me another after he got the fedex tracking number, which he did not due to out of stock. I sent him the monitor and after he got it back in Korea (6 days intl economy shipping we split 40/80), he insisted it was a bad power adapter and not the monitor he sent me, and still insist it was due to the power overheating after long operation. The screen flickered within seconds, or minutes after turning the screen on. Bad screen plain and simple.

He asked "How should we handle this?" insisting the monitor was just fine after they tested it. and again about a bad power adapter (Ebay protection case opened).

The Barrier of different Languages, and the fact that a lease two or three people was answering my replies makes it hard to know just what is just going on.

They shipped me another monitor still insisting the first one was just fine, but in another email they told me recently had a recall on 30 bad monitors with a QC problem? hence the out of stock problem
after I asked why he didnt ship the monitor after i gave him the Fedex information.

TA Planet has a Great Ebay rating , and I understand that its costly of return shipping cost on their part to the US. ( They we kind enough to split the Intl. Economy 40/80 $110 with me). They made sure I new it was an inconvenience to pay the return shipping to me. so I agreed to spend another $20 to help.

Guess we will see what I get in the mail?

Got my monitor on the mount today. Came fast from monoprice. Anyway the mount is pretty good. Although not as good as the dual mount I just got rid of which was from amazon.

My only gripe is the tilt feature. There are two thumb screws you need to losen to adjust it. But everytime I tighten it down where I want it it will sag a bit lower. So you have to tighten it a bit higher than you really want it and hope it sags to where you want it.

I got the shortest M4 screws from my local hardware store. Added a washer on each screw and it worked great. Here is the mount I got if anyone is interested.

I'm having a screen flicker issue with my CrossOver 27Q LED, no jumping though, just a rapid variation in brightness - a bit of a random strobe light effect. Not great variation, but enough to be noticeable on various backgrounds and cause eye strain. I've also tried 2 different DVI cables, and I guess I'll try a different power brick from my ShiMian, but I think it's just my particular panel having faulty backlight. Kind of a new issue to me as I haven't encountered it in reviews here, but it's something to watch out for in your new monitors. I did not immediately notice it, as the monitor was used for dynamic games for some hours after installation, but then reading steady email and news pages made the flicker very apparent.

Ordered the Lite yesterday from green-sum. Hopefully it ships fast to Finland. Guess I'm looking at a 2-3 week wait either way.
