CrossOver 27Q LED/LED-P, 27M LED, & 2720MDP GOLD LED Monitor Club - Page 22

It is unfortunate, but at these prices it's a risk you have to be willing to take. Even if I am out $80 to ship it back and $30 for the adapter, at $510, it's still a pretty good deal since the lowest comparable monitor I can find is about $700. A $190 savings isn't too shabby. The hardest part for me was having to wait for the monitors, now I have to wait for another power adapter before I find out what to do next. Also, keep in mind the US adapter isn't guaranteed if you buy a crossover - both of mine came with 230v adapters.

I really wanted a Shimian because I liked the styling and tempered glass. Now I find out that the power adapters could potentially fry them and Crossovers are the only ones that come included with US adapters but none of those are tempered. And the ones that are tempered don't have the damn US adapters! mad.gif
This is starting to sound a little too risky for me. I can't really afford to waste money in indirect costs like returns and power bricks etc.

Oh yeah I realize that. It was just stated in dcsamsungmall's auction that is is included. Speaking of a $30 adapter, where and what have you found for $30? I thought they were like $120?

Obviously it's risky, you're buying an expensive piece of electronics on eBay from South Korea. What did you expect?

They should be in the 20's, the adapter that's 100+ had it's priced raised by the seller because they ran out of stock and he didn't want to recreate the listing so he just increased the price to something ridiculous.

Just thought I would sign up and chime in with my experience thus far.

Monitor

3/26 - I ordered one of these Crossover monitors from dream-seller. I picked it because I like the looks much better than the other alternatives and the price was good.

3/27 - My order was marked as shipped, but I wasn't provided any tracking number. I read somewhere in the last 20 pages that some people were saying they weren't getting shipping numbers from DS or it was taking a long time to receive their monitors from him compared to others. Since I wasn't given a tracking number, I sent him a message asking where it was.

Dear dream-seller,

Hello,

I see that you marked my item as shipped, but I can't seem to find a tracking number anywhere. Would you be able to provide me a tracking number for this item?

Thank you.

Hi!
Thanks for your message and for purchasing our product.
We checked your transaction record and could see that your order was made on March 26th. When your transaction record was handed over to manufacturers, a shipment mark turned on. So your product will be shipped out by March 28th, and a tracking number and information will be updated by March 29th at the least. Would you wait and check it again by then, please?
If you have any other question, please feel free to ask. We'll try our best to help you out as far as we can. Thanks again. Have a great day!

So for those ordering from dream-seller, it seems that the it shows shipping a day or two before it actually ships. Just wanted to post this for anyone who wants to buy from dream-seller in the future.

Power

This particular monitor doesn't come with an American plug, so I pick up this one here for $26. Hopefully it's the right one for these monitors (someone please let me know if it's incorrect).

After I receive the monitor I'll come back to let everyone know how it is smile.gif

I have had an identical experience (his message was even the same as we ordered on the same day, literally copied and pasted). No idea why he is marking as shipped when it's not shipped, seems kinda shady to me. I understand getting it packaged and labeled and marking it as shipped with the tracking but not dropping off the package right away, just marking it for the sake of marking it doesn't make sense to me.

EDIT:

Looks to me like the polarity is reversed on that? The original listing was positive on the left and negative on the right, the link you posted is positive on the right and negative on the left.

Maybe wait for confirmation from another member? I'm not 100% positive, just basing it off the listings.

Sounds good. After going back to the OP and looking, it seems that I did indeed buy the incorrect one, so I'll hunt around for a non-$125 adapter while I wait for some others to respond. Thanks for the help
