CrossOver 27Q LED/LED-P, 27M LED, & 2720MDP GOLD LED Monitor Club - Page 174

post #1731 of 6483
Initial opinions of the monitor are highly positive. I haven't had the opportunity to play around with it much, but it looks fantastic. Backlight bleed is present, but minor and mostly above the backlight control buttons on the bottom right of the screen. There is one dead pixel immediately above the clock in windows 7, so it's not a problem for me at all and is hardly noticable. Haven't had a chance to calibrate yet. Box arrived with a single layer of bubble wrap around it (significantly less than what I've seen others post pictures of) and one small hole in it, but it wasn't near the screen.

The best thing is that I don't see any yellowing, which was my main concern. I can ignore a dead pixel or two, but yellowing on the screen would have driven me up a wall.

Unfortunately this yellow tinting keeps bugging me.. apparently it's not as easy to ignore as I thought it would be.
Guess it's time to contact AW again and see if I can get them to take it back.. It's kind of a shame considering the monitor only has 1 dead pixel otherwise.

Champers mine has that same bleed in the bottom right corner. I don't think it is backlight bleed per se but rather bleed from that crazy bright blue power LED. If it really starts to bother me I'll try disconnecting that LED to see if it solves the problem.

Thing is, the pixel perfect versions are listed as pixel pefect. If they're not, paypal/ebay has your back, and you can claim.

Have you considered tuning the colors so that yellow is less prominent?

Just got mine today, I am so happy with mine, tested it as well, looks like the monitor is perfect, aside from the small backlight on the bottom right, but overall I think it's a nice monitor. The back is metal, to me it's cheap lol, obviously but still it's a nice monitor.

The yellow that people talk about is a non-uniform splotchy tint. Sure, you can "tune" the colors with various calibration profiles, but you will still have a non-uniform screen. In some cases, it's very obvious. And when the rest of your screen looks great, but you have a visible yellow band at the bottom or some such (I had that), I don't think it can be fixed with calibration.

Unless there was an app where you could calibrate a specific 'section' of your screen, but alas that seems like a more complicated solution than people would want as opposed to getting a panel that is uniform in color. Sure hope mine doesn't have that.

I forgot to mention that I bought the monitor NON-pixel perfect from Accessorieswhole on Amazon. They gave me 2 microfiber cloths in the box as well, which I haven't seen anyone mention receiving before.

Also, The monitor is within millimeters of being the same height as my current Gateway FHD2400 (24" 1200p) and the pixels on that monitor look as big as bricks to me already!

Here's my monitor, good seller and efficient shipping, thanks Green-Sum, or shall I say 감사합니다
I do got a bit of back light bleeding from the bottom right, but I think it is in most crossover monitors.
