CrossOver 27Q LED/LED-P, 27M LED, & 2720MDP GOLD LED Monitor Club - Page 194

post #1931 of 6483
Does anyone here have or has had both this monitor and a Dell U2312HM? If so, what are your thoughts of the two in comparison? I'm still undecided which monitor is a better value/more useful in a college dorm for gaming/movies/internet browsing, and the only thing really stopping me from leaping on the Korean IPS is the size (27" seems huge in comparison to my Laptop's 15" screen) and the build quality I've seen people talk about. Any perspective would be greatly appreciated! smile.gif

I have a U2311H next to me right now. Not the same thing, but close enough.

Honestly? Colours aren't that much different when calibrated. My shimian is slightly more vibrant, and the lack of sparkle makes whites awesome. Size increase is a definite benefit, and it looks huge to me going up from the Dell, so it will be a bigger shock to you.

The build quality is fine. I wouldn't go with the catleap because of having to open it up to VESA mount it, but the shimian and crossover (especially the latter) have excellent build quality. Once you have the perfect panel, if the PCB somehow burns out I'm sure you could get a replacement one for cheap (I've heard red cap can get a hold of them)

The Dell is a good choice, but you wouldn't make any mistakes going for one of these at the prices offered.

Currently - yes, but I bet they'll go down in price, as well as the 27"s

Btw - which dell are we talking about?

Forget the 23" Dell, or any other matte 23" IPS panel if you care about the quality of text, whites & light colours.

The Asus VG23AH (280$) uses semi-glossy coating which is much lighter than the grainy garbage the Dell all other matte IPS panels use, it supports 72hz with custom timings and it's 3D (Passive 1920x540p 3D).

Check out my thread here.

I had a CrossOver 27Q LED-P with the dreaded blue tint and I currently have a CrossOver 2720MDP. The only real advtange of the dual-link dvi only Korean models is the size and real-estate which is fantastic for school work. Coming from a 15" laptop though, a 23" will still be a big improvement for school work productivity.

Ugh. So now I'm in the process of haggling with Accessorieswhole.

Seems since my GTX670 isn't listed as compatible on the Ebay page, they may claim it's my fault.

Err.

Err.

I thought your drama was epic back light bleed. How can they possibly try and blame that on any kind of graphics card incompatibility?
