The biggest point I can see here is the illusion of quality (internals are same regardless) and the slightly thinner bezel. Dunno if it's worth $50+ extra.

I think the shimains look ugly and cheap, but that's why everyone is entitled to there opinion, I hate how there is like 5 buttons on the back of the shimian but only three work, I hate the circular cheap black stand, and all the plastic.

I love the crossovers white scheme, I love the non pivet stand and how its white and matches the monitor, I like the blue power indicator on the front.

Enjoy you shimian, because I love my crossover and would recommend it to anyone, and I've seen the shimian and person and didn't like it better then the crossover.

The main reason I'd still recommend shimian is because I'm hardly seeing any problems or complaints about it versus the crossover and catleap. Crossover seems to be getting better, but I had one and my experience wasn't as good.

People go on about how white metal back of the Crossover looks so much better, but I've looked at the back of my Crossover once since the day I got it. It really doesn't matter what the back looks like, and it's not worth the extra $100 or so over the Shimian in my opinion. The blue power indicator might look nice, but it seems to produce more backlight bleed than the smaller, dimmer power lights of the Catleap and Shimian. The stand on the non-pivot is mediocre, and not worth the extra money.
It doesn't help that my Crossover has a nice yellow tint right down the middle of it, and that's another reason I'd suggest the cheapest Shimian: If you have an issue, you didn't spend as much money on it!

Got my 2720MDP from BCC today. Plugged it in and no dead pixels. It seems to have a slight amount of light bleed on the bottom right of screen but not enough to bother me one bit. I asked them to ship it with some extra padding and they put more foam inside the box(in front and back of screen) after they checked for QC. Picture is beautiful, but my big fear is the monitor having issues a few weeks in like some other users have, i.e. power issues, flickering, etc...

But again, extremely happy for now!!! thumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gif

Lol you keep talking about how the crossover is an extra $100 or cost extra??, it really isn't, I paid $350 for mine and the shimians go for as low as $320? , not a big difference at all, I didn't say the non pivet stand is better then the shimian I said I like the looks of it better to match my white framed monitor. I don't have any of this yellow tight down the middle of the screen that you speak of, maybe you should return it, and the backlight bleed from the led light is very small and I don't even notice unless I look for it.. so was it worth it to me to spend $30 more yes it was, is it worth it to buy a crossover for $380-$400 over a shimian, me personally I'd say no even with the pevit model, but that's because I would never use the monitor on portrait mode.

Well guys, after much anticipation i recieved my Crossover 27Q LED-P today at around 5pm, went and picked it up at the DHL hub because I missed the van this morning at 8am when he showed up.... The shipping speed is ridiculous, it was in South Korea at 5pm the previous day! Purchased from Bigclothcraft,

Monitor was packed extremely well with lots of extra foam sheeting rolled up and stuffed inside the box on both sides of the monitor and then the box wrapped in more foam. I am surprised with the weight of it, all this metal its made from is cool, really tough and decent build quality. No damage at all and so far I have found 0 bad pixels and no obvious or excessive backlight bleed. Recieved a Welltronics 110-240v power supply and a small adapter dongle to use with the Korean power cord, although I subbed a correct power cord for simplicity and reliability. Also interestingly enough my Bios screen posts!

I have been trying to figure out how to calibrate it now, blues are not out of control but compared to my TN Samsung there is more, so far I am using the profile off TFT Central and it makes the image way more almost brownish, maybe its the red appearing stronger without all the blue, looks good either way, prolly more correct with this profile though.

Hey,
I noticed that BCC, Green-sum, red-cap and dream-seller are not a top rated seller on ebay anymore.
They all have very bad reputation on their feedback.
I bought mine from AW about a month ago and I still communicating with them.
Not because my monitor has defect, but I just keep asking questions to them and small chitchat. lol
As they provide great customer services.
What I see on the overclock.net is
" I received my monitor. flawless. great condition. no dead pixels. and blah blah blah- "
But, what about after your usage and service?

All of the seller promised to provide 1 year warranty.
So far, no one maintained their monitor till 1 year and no feedback of what so ever.
Perhaps, it is time to be aware of their service provided?

This makes me happy - I ordered from AW and it was over-night, but because I THOUGHT it wouldn't get here that quickly, I didn't wait for the guy and went to sleep.

I check the tracking when I wake up @ 6 PM(I work night shifts) and it says a delivery was attempted. I find a door tag lol.

They will try again today and I will be ready, did the door tag anyways, just in case. Will sleep downstairs, near the door. IT worries me though, such fast shipping as well...I mean they must have thrown it around alot.

Also, AW was removed from Amazon as a trusted dealer / Authorized dealer. Which worries the heck out of me on top of that! Then my card was suspended and they now want to ship me a new one, because they suspect fraud. THey won't budge on this. They say someone has my card and is using it for purchases, but won't tell me what!

I somewhat believe it is because I ordered an item from Korea. So the card was charged by someone in Korea...I bet they saw this as a red flag, because it's Korea. I think my Bank is racist. I ordered from PlayAsia before and nothing, but Korea? Suddenly, bam, red flag! Someone stole yer credit card and they won't even tell me what the charges were.

I just can't get over that.

Monday, 5:30 PM item leaves sellers facility
Tuesday: 1:15 delivery attempt was made.

That is crazy!

But hey, I guess 200$ shipping, you should expect it! (He dropped off a label which said "Consumer item: 200 USD, Import / Shipping: 200USD

So that is where my 400$ went to. tongue.gif

But wow, if yer in Korea, you can get these same monitors for only 199$...nuts.
