I also received my PB2700 Super today... no bubble-wrap, the retail box was just wrapped inside your typical brown packing paper.
Here are some pictures for you (taken with just my cellphone so excuse the quality) and my quick impression :
Front of the box. Box was a bit beaten up and quite dusty. Actually does say "Super" on it
"Respanse" time lol
The last circle says energy saving.
This sticker was on the top side of the box. It says something like "Zero Dot 100% Perfect: If defective/malfunctioning item, it's possible to exchange it within 1 month"
Top of box opened, view of inside packaging. Notice that separate brown box inside.
Everything that was included in that brown box. To be specific: The user manual (9 pages of text, all Korean), the power plug adapter for the different prongs (next to the manual), the DVI cable, the power plug, the power brick, and speaker cable.
Info written on the power brick
The stand base (it swivels/rotates)
Underneath/bottom of stand
The part of the stand that's connected to the monitor
And with their powers combined...
All of the inputs. DVI, speaker, and power.
Quick first impression of this monitor without any calibration or thorough pixel test or whatnot:
For reference, I also have the LG 231P-BN, Viewsonic VX2336S , and the Dell U2412m (all E-IPS monitors) so if you have any of these monitors, use this info for comparison.
Note most of these impressions are subjective
Screen is gorgeous. The glossy makes everything look clean and clear (when there's no reflection). In contrast, the LG 231P has a criminal amount of AG coating.
I'm actually surprised how deep the blacks look. Again, probably because of the lack of aggressive AG coating like my other screens.
Without any hardware/software calibration, the colors are a bit on the warmer side.
Speaking of calibration, there really aren't any calibration buttons except brightness (and volume). There aren't any indications/OSD that confirms anything on screen.
"Respanse" / Response time lol:
I obviously didn't buy this monitor for gaming but I did check out its capability.
Bottom line: It ghosts a noticeable amount but not bad considering its a 27 inch IPS. Remember this is just my subjective view... you may not mind, or even notice, the ghosting at all if you've always been gaming on these types of monitors. It's all relative. When I say "noticeable", I mean I could tell with just my eyes when compared to my other monitors.
From the monitors I am currently using, my Asus TN panel has the least ghosting (of course). Then the Dell U2412m is the next best (no doubt thanks to its overdrive capability). Then comes this PB2700 Super monitor. When I am playing an FPS game on both this monitor and the U2412m, everything seems more blurry on this. How much more blurry? Well... just enough so that I would be able to tell you in a blind test which monitor is which by watching fast movement on both. But again, not a HUGE difference between the two. With that said, the PB2700 is MUCH better than the next on my list - the Viewsonic VX2336S. The Viewsonic has much more obvious ghosting. Finally, the LG 231P is last place (has a TINY bit more ghosting than the Viewsonic). I honestly would never play any fast games on the Viewsonic nor the LG due to their horrendous ghosting. However, I have read other people have no problem gaming on their LG 231P so who knows? Perhaps you won't even notice any ghosting (especially if the monitor you are used to has a slow response time).
It's competent. Satisfactory. It wobbles more than the Dell and the Viewsonic, but it's not going to fall over or anything. It doesn't shake when I'm typing quickly but I guess this would depend on the desk you are using as well. It swivels/rotates and tilts.
Bezel is crap. The plastic around the edge of the actual screen is not tight whatsoever, Lots of wiggle/pinch/squeeze room.
The power brick gets quite warm. It won't burn you if you touch it, but it seems pretty hot.
The screen gets warm as well (still much cooler than the brick). I don't really notice any heat from my other monitors, just this one. Not enough to matter I guess.
Have not tried the speakers nor do i plan to.
The screen is pretty glossy... good for image reproduction, bad for reflections as I have a large window nearby.
When I started writing this, I figured it'd be a paragraph or two so my apologies about the length
The bezel is crap, the stand is decent, the screen is amazing. Hope this helped, feel free to ask any questionsEdited by BruceWayne - 4/4/12 at 6:05am
