Correct me if im wrong, but seems kinda dumb that this monitor is so much and doesn't have an HDMI cable!
Wouldn't an VGA to hdmi look better than a vga to dvi?

The gold model has an HDMI but some say that it interferes with the quality. I know hdmi is easier to use, but dvi is essentially the same. There is is no picture crisp or gain in between hdmi and dvi. The only difference is that hdmi carries sound.

They both are capable of outputting a very high res as long as you have drivers supporting it.

Also, the plus with the non-hdmi version is that it weighs considerably less. I think 8 pounds or so. Thats cool for me since I like light stuff.

These korean panels are known to be bare-bone monitors, meaning they are just the screen and that's all you'll pretty much get with it. ie: no calibration.

the only ebay seller considered ebay top seller is accessorieswhole, who are more expensive than everyone but provide 1 year warranty and everyone has had great success with them. There are others that people have used that work out just fine if you read through thread but their feedback varies on ebay with individual experiences

Well not 100% but there are a few good ones. I have not bought one yet but from users people have recommend green-sum and dream-seller. They both have models at $350 (led-P) with 1 dollar in price variance. Both are rated very high.

The other person I can recommend is AccessoriesWhole who sells it for 399.99 + adapter, but guarantees 2 stuck pixel or less. He is also the highest reviewed ebayer with close to 10,000 ratings.

I'd personally go with dream-seller since he is the cheapest (by 1 dollar compared to green-sum) but he also includes a free 110v~220v adapter. Good if you live in the USA. I do not think green-sum includes the adapter.

Also, in dream-seller's info he says he checks all the panels he sells before he ships them which gives a little piece of mind I guess. thumb.gif

The only way to get a 0 stuck pixel is go with dell or apple or samsung. But those cost 900+ dollars. There is a reason these monitors are 300-400 range.

Furthermore, 2 stuck pixel is very hard to see considering how many pixels are already on this panel. There are software out there that tries to fix stuck pixel and what not but its not for certain.

elaborate on stuck pixel then maybe? because i have a 23 inch LED monitor from asus and its flawless?
Why would it be hard for them to make it too? (sorry just trying to understand)

please research on the korean monitors. often front page of every club explains this... these are panels that apple and dell use. they are all LG panels, but are considering A- panels and are the rejects from apple and dell. This is reason why they are so cheap, but it may or MAY NOT have dead pixels and at this resolution seeing a dead pixel is crazy. Often they can be rubbed out as well. If you want a perfect monitor go with apple or dell, but you still don't have 100% chance of perfect. They have issues too.

Well first lets "elaborate on a stuck pixel".

A stuck pixel is a pixel or pixels on a liquid crystal display (LCD) that are not performing as expected. Of those, a dead pixel never shows light, and a stuck pixel always shows light (typically red, blue or green), when the device is active.

Your asus monitor is probably 1920×1080 pixels so 2,073,600 pixels in total.

With these panels the resolution is much higher at 2560×1440 so 3,686,400 pixels in total.

So say you buy an Overcross 270Q LED-P panel, you have a chance of getting a panel that has 1-5 stuck pixel out of 3,686,400 pixels. You think you'd notice that easily? Its hard but if you stare at your monitor and blind yourself you could probably find your stuck pixels, however from regular viewing distance its almost indistinguishable.

Now, lets say your a perfectionist and want a perfect zero stuck pixel panel. Go with a dell or apple or samsung for 900+ dollars. They use the top of the line panel which isnt that far from what are in these korean models. And on the off chance you get a stuck pixel with a dell, apple, or samsung you are under a very solid warranty.

These korean models do offer some sort of warranty, but shipping it back to Korea or the sorts is generally not worth it as shipping is expensive.

Some users in this thread say it is kind of like a lottery with these panels. There is a chance you could get a Crossover with zero stuck pixels. A lot of people say they actually have. (But I doubt it since if that was true then it probably would be in some dell and not a crossover, 1 pixel out of a sea of 3 million is like a needle in a hay stack).
