CrossOver 27Q LED/LED-P, 27M LED, & 2720MDP GOLD LED Monitor Club - Page 274

post #2731 of 6483
Used my new Dell 2713HM monitor today - its factory calibrated right out of the box with an amazing stand and build quality.

The bad part is that the matte screen is nowhere near as beautiful as glossy screen on the crossovers. I suppose for office type work the matte screen is less tiring on the eyes, but if you want an Apple cinema display clone then the crossover is still the closest I think.

I will keep the Dell just because I need Displayport to connect to a laptop and the warranty. I'd seriously recommend it and prefer it to the Samsung 850D PLS monitor, but I still have a soft spot for these Crossovers.

^^The build and stand of the Dell does look good. Review with pics please! thumb.gif

Second crossover made it to Anchorage AK in 24 hours after order, didn't get first shipped out for 48 hours, guess the $50 extra with AW makes a large difference

sucks that you aren't having any success getting a replacement. we might have to turn to a DIY fix

Hey guys,

Just received my perfect pixel Crossover and I am blown away by the image sharpness and colours. I am coming from a Samsung S27A750D so dropping from 120hz is taking a lot of getting used to.

I play a lot of BF3 and although it looks amazing at 1440p and the FPS are mostly well over 60fps I find that it feels laggy and choppy.

I have played around a bit with vsync and also Nvidias pre-rendered frames and found that setting the NVIDIA control panel to a single pre-rendered frame along with no vsync gave me a more responsive game.

Does anyone have tips on how to get the best out of this panel when it comes to gaming?

For the record, I only find the lag noticable in a game like BF3. Guild Wars 2 feels fine.

Got my Crossover 27Q LED-P from seller goodforum! Price was $324 + $50 shipping.

I purchased it on Thursday (9/13), it was shipped on Friday (9/14) and arrived on Monday (9/17). There seemed to be no problems at customs (Alaska?) and it made its voyage swiftly. I wasn't home for the pickup and FedEx left a note since a signature was required. I requested online that the package be held at the local FedEx and was able to get it the same day. Here's what my tracking info looked like:

Very pleased with shipping speed and time.

Now onto the monitor- they say pictures are worth 1000 words, so here we go:

I had already ripped open the heavy-duty gray plastic wrapping, but I put it back on for the picture thumb.gif
IMG_4198_zps4788c456.jpg

Box was a little beat up, but in pretty good shape- its whats inside that counts, eh?
IMG_4197_zps80056808.jpg

Monitor was very snug inside the packaging- there was a cardboard sheet with alot of bubble wrap on the screen side.
IMG_4199_zps42d7cb8b.jpg

The included accessories- I stuck the gift universal travel adapter in there too for good measure.
IMG_4201_zpsebc254d5.jpg

The power brick- looks to be the same one the Catleap owner gets- 110-240V Welltronics WTS-2405W
IMG_4202_zps29821e82.jpg

The power cable- definitely not a US plug!
IMG_4205_zps2857f95f.jpg

The travel adapter has an assortment of plugs. Was given as a gift by the seller. Comes with a travel pouch (similar to PSU bags).

IMG_4204_zps6256f470.jpg

The question to which I could not find an answer to- yes it came with a Dual-Link DVI cable (male to male)!
IMG_4206_zps559e85ca.jpg

The manual- goes over the included accessories and where the buttons are.

The monitor out of the box
IMG_4209_zpsfcb43da4.jpg

Most of the packaging gone
IMG_4210_zps95e44f6c.jpg

It really is metal- quite heavy and cool to the touch. No dings or scrapes!

Backlight + | Backlight - | Power | LED
IMG_4212_zps242474da.jpg

The buttons- far left is Power, the two closer together are for the brightness.
IMG_4214_zps2c4b2ee3.jpg

The stand- does pivot, tilt, swivel. Height adjustment appears to be locked by default, might need to loosen the screw.
IMG_4216_zpsde78764c.jpg

Yay it works!

Didn't get that much time with it but I can say that it is gorgeous. It dwarfs my Dell U2311H (23'', e-IPS, 1080P) in both physical size and resolution- 1440P is no joke (78% more pixels than 1080P!). Was never a big fan of glossy displays (Macbook Pros.. eeeuk), but with the Crossover things look extremely vibrant and detailed- definitely prefer it over the anti-glare coating on the Dell. The room is pretty dim, however, maybe glare could be a bigger problem with overhead fluorescents.

The monitor is in great shape- no shipping damage (other than a little bit of dust on the surface) and from what I can tell there are zero dead / stuck pixels. I will run tests though to confirm officially. Calibration is a little off- a little yellow, but I only noticed it when compared to my calibrated Dell. I put the brightness all the way down- still pretty bright. You can tell because the LED blinks purple when you change the brightness, I just held the BL - button until the LED stopped blinking.

Power brick seems fine- a little green LED turns on when it receives power. With my brightness at the lowest, the brick stayed cool to the touch and didn't make any noises after a few hours of use.

Was disappointed to find that my 460 SLI could not run 3 displays while keeping SLI. To activate all monitorrs, SLI gets disabled. To do Surround (SLI remains enabled), all monitors have to be the same resolution. I have 1x 1440p and 2x 1080p monitors so that didn't work, but to my understanding 7680x1440 (3x 2650x1440) or 5670x1080 (3x 1920x1080) should work. If I'm not mistaken the GTX 6xxs and Radeon 79xxs can have their outputs active with displays without a need for an Active Displayport adapter like the Radeon 5xxxs- guess its nearly time to upgrade

Need to do more testing, but 1GB 460 SLI (820/1850) could handle 1440p maxed out Dota 2 no problem.

I will definitely get more pictures of the monitor in action when I can- just wanted to get the shipping and preliminary stuff up and some as soon as I could. Input lag, calibration, backlight bleed all coming soon!

Overall, a very strong first impression- beautiful color, solid build quality, and a very reasonable price point. Just gotta hope it'll stay this way for a few years! tongue.gif

To the guys with issues: At least you have your monitors! wink.gif



Long story short: (not that short, but trust me, it's actually 3 weeks worth of hassle!)
The customs officer originally rejected the stated value and it being a gift. (Btw, the 'gift' thing doesn't apply for this type of import in Canada, next time, you don't NEED to request it being a gift as customs doesn't treat it as such anyway).
DHL contacted me requesting some forms filled out stating 'proper value'. Contacted BCC, after 2 days + a weekend in between, he finally sent me his seller's invoice which of course did NOT go over well with DHL, they wanted my bank statement as proof.
I wanted to self-clear it originally btw, so I requested the commercial invoice as well as accompanying docs from DHL. Ended up calling some CBSA (customs) offices and apparently (contrary to my research), you NEED to go to in person to the port of entry (Hamilton in this case) if you want to self-clear it. Because of the small value (and relatively low brokerage prices DHL charges (vs. UPS for example (2.5% of customs fees/minimum of $10)), I finally gave up trying to self-clear it and let DHL do it.
That's not so easy though, as they were supposed to send forms in last week, and said they did, but then after 4 days I contacted them again and they said 'they'll send them again', which I found suspicious so later that day I contacted Hamilton customs who said they JUST received them for the first time, and already cleared them (that was impressive, as DHL said 24-72 hours). I'm thinking DHL is the culprit here, as customs can obviously clear it within a day no problem. Finally confirmed with DHL that they received the clearance forms, the package should finally be shipping out tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed for a) a good monitor, and b) no more delays!!

Pro-tips (probably only relevant to Canadian readers):
1) If you don't live near the port of entry (where the package is received to be processed by customs), don't bother trying to self-clear unless you want to drive out there.
2) Keep in touch with your shipping company (DHL, in my case), they didn't call me back 3 out of the 4 times when they NEEDED to call me for further action/progress! I had to keep calling them almost daily to make sure they were progressing accordingly. I became pretty close buddies (sarcasm) with their 5 (or so) brokerage staff working out of Hamilton. Thank god for toll-free!
3) Customs in Hamilton (I live in Toronto), isn't toll-free, only call them when you absolutely have to! Also, their number is hard to find because they don't like being called, but they're pretty nice, just be courteous and respectful as you should always be.

Will post pics of the actual monitor tomorrow hopefully when I finally get it!!

Never mind, there was the FULL Screen , or No scaling option in my video card driver.
I never touch those, don't know how it got changed

I need help, the monitor suddenly stop scaling. It black border the screen instead of stretching it. It also happens within games (which is a big problem) when I lower the resolution.
I just got the monitor today, It was fine when I was 1st testing out the solution settings. I remember it changing from stretched to black border when I change between 59hz and 60z..
But right now I'm trying all the settings and I can't get it to stretch when lowering solution.

You should see Samsung's 970D PLS. It's glossy and has about the best picture I've ever seen. Too bad it's north of $1k...
