CrossOver 27Q LED/LED-P, 27M LED, & 2720MDP GOLD LED Monitor Club - Page 158

post #1571 of 6483
backlight bleeding/uniformity problems are way more noticeable than a few dead pixels anyway. that destroys contrast and image quality. so these shimians appear to be better in that regard from reviews. it's a shame these crossovers have the best looking housing yet it's more hit or miss on the panel quality.

what i've got on mine is hardcore backlight bleed from the right side, general washed out image, and a dark blotch and line. could be from damage, or could be how it left korea. the overall low contrast doesn't give me much confidence, though. i think i'll give the shimians a go, or just forgot about these monitors altogether.

Mine was completely fine except for the flickering I had.

Aside from the backlight bleeding problem, i really like the crossover monitor. Refund or replacement, decisions, decisions, decisions...

Try it on a seller you're not going to go for first. tongue.gif

I trust aw tested all monitors before shipping. I'm thinking about they maybe test their monitors in a very bright room, so they will never notice the backlight problem. My room, on the other hand, is kind of dark, that's why I noticed it so easily. The photo I took, was definitely not IPS glow, but backlight bleeding. I even provided AW (Nancy) a short video showing the problem on my monitor. AW (Nancy) is being excellent so far, as she agreed to take it back to test. I was not blame AW, just the whole excitement suddenly became disappointment, which makes me sad.
ps, this monitor is not $400, plus import duty it is close to $600 CAD...

wow are you serious, you paid $200 in duty?!?!?!? thats nuts, mine was supposed to arrive today it was even out for delivery but for some reason it said returned to depot and on hold, they better not of damaged it!

i told red-cap to mark the value at $100 so i wouldnt get raped in duty, hopefully theres non at all! biggrin.gif

Yeah we don't have any import duties or taxes on items under $1000 that aren't tobacco or alcohol in Australia. They make up for it with ridiculous alcohol taxes.

Here's my current setup. A 27q is on the left and a 2720mdp is on the right. The 2720mdp is upside-down because it is 3" lower than if it was right-side-up and neither monitor could rotate into portrait easily if the support arms were any lower. The support is the Mount It! from Amazon for $54. I have my PC hooked into both monitors with dual DVI's.

My Macbook Pro is currently hooked into the 2720mdp through HDMI (only 1080p). I did not go with active dual DVI because I read it can be glitchy and may require reconnects. So I figured a 2720mdp would be the same cost as a 2nd 27q and active DVI-D adapter combined.

A cheap minidisplayport->displayport cable did not work, it causes a kernel panic on the Macbook Pro. I've read that it is a software issue that is going to be resolved with the release of 10.8 Mountain Lion in a few weeks. I guess a MDP->DP cable works on monitors such as U2711 and ACD, but not this one yet...I hope it is resolved because that was the whole point of buying the 2720mdp instead of another 27q.

The 2720mdp stand would not come off without unscrewing the panel housing. You can see the stand sticking up from the top of the monitor and it looks pretty retarded. Hopefully someone braver than I will eventually post a video of how to open the panel housing and remove the stand. It may look a little better after removing the Crossover logo and I may also remove the OSD labels (will probably regret it later when I need to change settings).

Have you considered using a mini-displayport to displayport adapter along with a displayport cable? I've been using the Accell B112B-001B adapter and it works just fine with my MBP 10.6.8.

What size is your MBP? Maybe its because I have a 13" with onboard graphics?
