CrossOver 27Q LED/LED-P, 27M LED, & 2720MDP GOLD LED Monitor Club - Page 275

True, but the guts in the base allow the panel itself to be ultra thin. I mean, it's as thin as an iPhone...

I tested it with another monitor on the same port, it works fine but not the Crossover. I bought it from AW. What should i do now? frown.gif

I'd wait until AW answers. Not much you can do till you know what's wrong with the monitor. I bought my monitor from AW too so i'm eager to know how they respond.

Not worth the flimsy stand and the fact you can't get the monitor off the desk, especially at this price range.

You'd be better off just getting a NEC or something.

Be sure to get a good DVI-D dual link cable. My screen went black once every minute for a few seconds while using the original cable that came with it. I thought the screen was defective, but luckily I bought a high quality DVI-D cable (about 35€ for a gold plated one). With the new cable, my screen now works perfectly!

I actually bought two extra cables: one from Ebay that cost about 7$, and then the one mentioned above. The one from Ebay didn't work either although it was listed as 'high quality' and goldplated. I suggest you go in a shop and look around for a decent cable.

You really can't win with 27" 1440p monitors.

You are correct, I do have the very VERY subtle criss-cross hatch on some light backgrounds. Don't have image retention yet because I haven't left an image to burn in yet. I do have the same backlight bleed as others on the left of the monitor.

Frankly given the lack of choice for decent 27 inch monitors that are somewhat affordable, I'll just stick with this. I've had enough of trying to get a decent one.

Received my "Pixel Perfect" 2720MDP yesterday from Dream Seller. He doesn't bubble-wrap his boxes like the other sellers (AW BCC). Fortunately the box showed no damage. Unfortunately the monitor flickers a lot when connected to my Windows 7 machine with a GT670 and only slightly less when connected to my Ubuntu machine running a GT520. I too a video and sent a link to Dream Seller only to receive the canned response about his being in the hospital. I tried multiple DVI cables and power supplies from my other working monitors. The problem stayed with this new monitor

Funny that they had enough staff on hand to take my purchase and ship it. If I do not hear back from him in another day I think I will begin an official dispute with Ebay.

Well I have just purchased from AcessoriesWhole.
Will post info as I receive it.

QUESTION: has anyone ever considered adding a Square Trade warranty? Offered through eBay at checkout for 3 years. 30 days to add warranty from purchase data.
