CrossOver 27Q LED/LED-P, 27M LED, & 2720MDP GOLD LED Monitor Club - Page 255

post #2541 of 6483
My Crossover LED-P from Green-Sum arrived after 15 days due to his supplier having a bad run of defective screens.

Good service from Green-Sum and the screen is superb, better than the Catleap I bought from him a few months before as it has no real bottom-third yellowy tint, although the Catleap wasnt noticeable to me outside a solid background.
It has a Welltronics power adapter if thats a good thing or not. DL-DVI cable is very thick.

White is white and the Catleap D6500K ICC profile in Catleap Club thread is almost perfect to my eye. Better than it was for my Catleap.
The only Crossover profile I found was terrible, I think this may be one of the new Crossovers and a different colour setup to old.

I have no calibration hardware myself.

Stand is good and chassis seems well built, quite heavy being metal. The logo and base are cheap looking but otherwise its great value.
Poor old Dell U2412 and U2311 are a bit average looking after this!

No bad pixels, uniformity is good and no real backlight leakage (best Ive seen) . Very pleased, cant see how this screen could look better.

Edit:
Just checked again in dark and yes still slight yellow tinge in bottom third but hard to see, less than for my Catleap. Not noticeable otherwise IMO.
Also is something stuck behind screen near middle, but I couldnt even see it first time on a pure background using pixel tester program.

So if this is all they are "failing" these LG panels on then buy em up!

Its better it takes a little longer than having to hassle with a return.

I want to buy a new monitor but not from the infamous AccessoriesWhole anymore after their debacle of a returns service. Is ta_planet any good?
post #2544 of 6483
ta_planet, BCC, green_sum and redcap are good.

Personally, I may be going with redcap, just currently working out something with him ( I appreciate how he will go the extra mile and even supplied someone a new PCB when theirs had blown instead of having to ship the monitor back)

I purchased the 27Q about a month ago and it was perfect for a while. Yesterday I started noticing some mild flickering of the screen, very faint but noticeable if you paid close attention. Today, the flickering is near constant and glaringly obvious and the monitor goes completely black quite frequently (at least once every 15 minutes) requiring several power cycles to restore the picture. I contacted red-cap yesterday when it was doing the minor flickering and he seemed hesitant to start the return process, but now that it has progressed I'm hoping he'll take it back. I'll let you all know how it turns out, but just something to be aware of considering this monitor was perfectly fine for almost a month. I'm very disappointed. Hoping to do an exchange.

I bought my Crossover from dream-seller and I have issues with the PCB.
I contacted DS but they were not able to help me and send a replacement PCB.

Damn, I should have bought my monitor from another reseller it seems.

I don't think redcap will be willing to sell me a separate PCB...?

As far as I've gathered, there have been some serious issues regarding supply as of the beginning of September. Every seller claims to be seeing a large amount of "defective panels" resulting in shipping delays. Personally, I would forget everything you've learned about each seller since March, and start paying attention to what people are reporting since the price increase.

As someone who has received a DOA panel and had to deal with the pain of.the return process, I'm extremely hesitant to purchase another one at these inflated prices. And the more stories I read about monitors giving out over time, the more inclined I become to follow my better judgment.

Got my Crossover from dream-seller this morning. Bought the normal non-perfect listing and it is flawless. Not a single dead pixel after a VERY close look over all solid color backgrounds. I can't bring myself to taking out my T2i for photos right now, I'll take care of that later. Dude is definitely a reliable seller. Every seller will have a few customers that had a bad experience. I was worried about the couple of negative remarks on his feedback, but figured they were simply bad eggs out of the batch.

Hi - first post here. Been following and reading for a bit - especially about the Korean IPS monitors.
Was about to pull the trigger on a purchase from accessorieswhole (slightly less $'s right now than bigclothcraft) but had a question for the forum.

Seems the monitor ships with Type F plug. He includes a Type A adaptor for here in the USA. Wondering if anyone else is running this way and whether its good / bad / indifferent to the electronics?

Thanks!
Pete
