I will certainly try to get on that over the long weekend smile.gif I did manage to do a bit of side-by-side with the two tonight, but no chance to take pics or make a video yet.

That said, here are my impressions so far...

On closer inspection when I got everything set up at home, I can spot two issues with the panel I didn't see at first glance.

Firstly there is a definite back-light bleed in the top right corner which looks pretty bad when any dark image is on the screen in a low-light room. It's not terrible by any means (I have bought supposed A/A+ panels locally with worse ... *cough*ASUS*cough*) but it is there and noticeable on a dark screen. I can't see it at all in normal use without really trying hard to look.

Secondly, on a pure white screen the bottom 3rd of the panel has a slight yellow tint to it. Again, this is not something you would readily notice unless you were in the right conditions and specifically looking for it. Really though, I don't care about either of these issues. Sure I paid over $400 for the screen which might seem like a premium, but considering the screen size, resolution, panel tech and connection options, it's a steal. Realistic expectations are very important with these screens I feel, and I'm very happy with my purchase despite its unwanted extra "features" wink.gif

Side-by-side with the U2412 there was a big difference. I calibrated both simply using the Windows 7 colour calibration tool and eyeballing it (no technical wizardry here! /spits into fire) The Dell seems to have nicer uniformity on whites and less back-light bleeding, but that was the only two things I could say were better vs the CrossOver. Using 1920 x 1200 feels TINY after even an hour at 2560 x 1440! I really get what people mean when they say that 16:9 vs. 16:10 means a whole helluva lot less at this screen size and resolution.

The CrossOver is bright and very crisp with great colours. I'm not sure how accurate they are even after my colour lolibration attempts, but I knows what I likes and I likes this. The Dell, by comparison, looks perhaps more accurate in terms of the colour, but it looked a bit flat and lacked the "pop" of the CrossOver.

Rather than Wall-o-Text everyone to death I will simply say that, despite the defects, I'm super pleased with the screen. The image quality is absolutely fantastic and precisely what I was looking for in a new monitor!

Hi everyone,

I'll start by saying that no, I haven't read the whole thread sorry, but was wondering if someone could help me.
I'm considering buying one of these (Crossover 27Q LED-P) however before I do I want a little reassurance it will work with my system (which I actually don't have yet, it's coming soon). I'm ordering a Lenovo Thinkpad X230T and I know that it can take this resolution as I've seen a video of this laptop supporting a 2560x1600. Based on this I'd be fairly same to assume this will work, right?
I was just a little worried because of the whole "supported graphics card" thing I've been seeing but was given the impression that things like looking at the BIOS with this display won't work, but if it can support the resolution (which I know it can support higher) it should generally work.
Anyone think I'll have problems?

Thanks.

Hi, I have not posted on this thread yet, but I got my Crossover 27q LED-P on Thursday and I ordered it on the Sunday, I am in Queensland, Australia so I am very pleased. The black parts around the screen (I think they are called the bezel) has two painting imperfections that are not very noticeable. I really like the size but I have to get used to all the new screen area as it is such a high resolution and I am coming from a 23 inch monitor. The stand seems nice and sturdy. I will have to test it for dead pixels and light bleed. But as far as I am aware there is not any dead pixels that I can spot. It feels like I am a winner so far, I was like a kid at Christmas when it arrived. The brown box was slightly pushed in but the monitor was wrapped in a lot of bubble wrap. The seller also gave me a conversion to Australian plug and three different coloured bandana/scarf things. I bought mine from "accessorieswhole".

Slightly concerned, getting flickering. Changing brightness up or down seems to fix it for awhile for some reason. Anyone ever find a solution to this?

Also is it possible for backlight bleed to get worse? I swear when I got this thing it had zero perceivable bleed, but now I'm seeing it on the bottom corners like my old viewsonic IPS. I tilted it up more to try and manage it.

Hi guys

From what review i saw on

http://www.playwares.com/xe/22822289

2720MDP is poor in comparison to 27Q especially the color temp, tone and accuracy of colors blacks etc

So does it mean that 27Q is better than 2720MDP

You have to translate the above mentioned webpage using google chrome

please go through it and let me know if all that is written is true.

please hurry and let me know especially those who have 2720 model

i have a gtx 460 ZOTAC OC version of graphics card. I hope it is adequate

regards

As per my PM but I will also put it here - the first post in this thread is out of date.

Playwares did a new review of the updated 2720MDP GOLD LED: http://www.playwares.com/xe/22912327

As you can see, CrossOver upgraded the firmware and it made a huge difference to the quality of the panel. I asked AW before shipping about this and they confirmed that all their screens are using the new firmware.

Hi there. The 27Q LED-P only has one input port - a DVI Dual Link input. To work at all, this requires a graphics card with DVI Dual Link output...looking at the specs of your laptop I don't see that it has one.

I would contact Lenovo and ask them if the laptop will run on DVI-DL l(using their DisplayPort-to-DVI adaptor) . Definitely proceed with caution though as there's a good chance the 27Q won't work for you, sorry to say. Best to make sure before taking the plunge.

I'm so confused with my 27Q's dead pixels. Check out the progression of the defect since I've received it:

Note: I've probably only used the monitor a total of maybe 6 hours between turning it on/off.

Day 1 opening:


Day 1 end of day:


Day 2 end of day:


Day 3 morning (today):


As you can see, HUGE difference. I'm contemplating if it'll be 'gone' in a few days. What do you guys think? AW has not yet responded to my support request.

hi again

how is your 2720MDP?

does it have issues with grey levels, tone or colors?

is there a calibration profile for 2720MDP like it is for 27Q?

Did you calibrate it?

Did you adjust it gamma value as well?

If cost connectivity are not the issue and instead

time lag,
picture quality and
color accuracy

is the ONLY concern

then which is better 27Q or 2720MDP or Blade or 27M/H?

I am scared of green tint and washed out images and i need as accurate colors and qick response maybe higher refresh rate as well

Which is best Korean monitor based on my above mentioned requrement?
