Which seller did you get yours from?

Mine arrived yesterday. Briefly tested and not one dead or stuck pixels. Very satisfied with it other than the design of the stand, but for the money I could not complain. Bought on March 28 so fairly fast shipping by Korea Post and USPS.

btw, I ordered from cool-guys. They are good, fast shipping and very good communications. Overall great experience.

question: Anyone knows how to adjust the brightness? It's too bright out of the box..

Please, would you post the shipper name and address for Cool-Guys.

USPS has lost my PB2700 coming out of customs and needs the shipper name, address, and weight to even start a trace. So far the Cool-Guys have been not responded although their morning has begun. Hopefully they will, but it would be greatly appreciated if you could post this information. I may not be the only one having this problem. Because I will be out of town next week, I have only a few days before I have cancel the order because of USPS 's mistake that they don't seem very capable of correcting. Maybe its simply misplacement or maybe theft but it is a mess. I would never, never choose a vendor using EMS again. At least with Fedex/UPS they know how to connect a tracking number to a bill of lading and you know where to lean for an answer.

I got mine from bigclothcraft... the Super version for a $340 offer. I couldn't be happier at this point. Well, unless it did over 60hz!

Bought on March 30th, shipped yesterday and received today in Arizona via DHL.

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 smile.gif
450


"Respanse" time lol biggrin.gif The last circle says energy saving.
450


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"
450O


Top of box opened, view of inside packaging. Notice that separate brown box inside.
450


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.
450


Info written on the power brick
450


The stand base (it swivels/rotates)
450


Underneath/bottom of stand
450


The part of the stand that's connected to the monitor
450


And with their powers combined...
450


All of the inputs. DVI, speaker, and power.
450


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

Image/screen quality:
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).

The Stand:
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.

Some Cons/Negatives:
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 tongue.gif
The bezel is crap, the stand is decent, the screen is amazing. Hope this helped, feel free to ask any questions

Well, I enjoyed reading about everyone's experiences concerning these monitors so much, that I registered here recently, and ordered my non-super PB2700 this past Friday, for 312 USD with a coupon, from cool-guys. I had a couple of questions, Bruce. First off, from whom did you order your monitor from? Also, where are you based at? Have you tried any video or movie playback yet? What graphics card are you using to drive this monitor, and last but not least, did you have any issues like some people seem to be having with weird issues turning the monitor on or having issues seeing the bios screen on boot up?

Will give my own first impressions hopefully if there are no issues within the next day or two if it doesn't get stuck in customs here in LAX. thumb.gif

Also a quick question to anyone who knows. What is the polarity of the pin out from the adapter to the monitor? I can't quite make sense of the mechanical drawing from the adapters manual I picked up online.

396

Would this be a compatible adapter, should I need to replace the shipping adapter with one that works natively on the 110v standard here in California?

The seller is asking me to put as a gift and asking how much the price I want for the invoice vs customs? Does this reduce taxes on his part and not hurt me in any form? Thanks.

I would not pay as a gift. Paypal will not protect you unless purchased as goods.
