I would probably try to get a replacement.

Think BCC will send me a new one free of charge? It might be cheaper for him than to pay for my return shipping (according to his ebay returns policy)...
These monitors can be picked up for like $150 in SK.

Has anyone shipped their monitor back successfully? How much was it?

Possibly. You'll have to ask.

I think I'm going with Crossover instead of Catleap or Shimian (unless there's a very good reason to go with one of the others right now) because it sounds like I won't have to replace the base, the white trim will match my corsair 600t white case, and I I like the led-p version's ability to rotate.

There seem to be a ton of these on ebay.

Are there some specific sellers who are very reliable that I should be looking at? Also, I thought I saw a mention on reddit of overclock.net selling the monitors. That sounded odd to me as I thought Overclock.net was mostly about discussion and articles, but is it true?

thanks,

he emailed me back as well asking for a video of the problem

so i'm assuming i'll get a similar response to yours
post #2805 of 6483
AW was telling me to either ship it back for repair or pay 2 ways shipping for a new set. I'm trying to ask for the replacement pcb, gotta wait till Monday for them to reply :/

There was someone who was looking into a 'group buy' for these monitors on OCN but it never came to fruition.

Recommended sellers:

AccessoriesWhole
BigClothCraft (I bought two from this seller)
Redcap
Green_sum

There are a few more too but these are all I can remember off the top of my head.

Thank you Iced Earth. Someone else recommended AccessoriesWhole as well so that's probably what I'll be going with. Wish me luck smile.gif

This is the one I'm thinking of going with: http://www.ebay.com/itm/CROSSOVER-NEW-27QD-P-LED-BLADE-2560x1440-DVI-D-Dual-S-IPS-27-Speaker-Monitor-/120972654818?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item1c2a8838e2

It mentioned something about being a by-pass and not having an AD board. Is that a problem?

Also, the seller offers a small adapter for US plugs. Would I still need to buy an actual power supply in case there frequency/volt/amp differences?
post #2808 of 6483
That's the price I paid for my two LED-P's a month ago. The Blade has built in speakers which mine doesn't have. smile.gif

I would definitely recommend one!

I'm not sure what this AD board is referring to. I never had to research such a thing.

The PSU (Welltronics) is pretty good, mine doesn't get too hot and it hasn't failed once. It works at both 230V (UK) and 110V (US) so you don't need to do anything.

The adapter plug is very cheap and my monitor would keep turning on and off when I knocked it, most probably a dodgy termination inside the adapter.

I simply used a UK kettle lead instead. You will be able to simply swap the EU lead and adapter for a standard US kettle lead that plugs directly into the Welltronics power brick. I recommend doing this rather than using the low quality adapter. smile.gif

So no you don't need to buy another power brick, but I do recommend replacing the supplied lead for a US kettle lead so that you don't need to use the adapter.

I hope this helps.

EDIT:

It's worth noting that most documented Crossover purchases came with a Dual Link DVI cable, so there's no need to purchase one of those either. smile.gif

Some people have had issues with the supplied cable but mine work perfectly.

Thanks. I will take note of the kettle lead if I have any issues. smile.gif

I ordered a CrossOver 27Q LED-P from dream-seller for $447 on September 13th. It arrived on September 18th. (The price has since gone up to $457.)

When it arrived, it was missing the power adapter, so I haven't been able to test the monitor yet. I sent a message to dream-seller asking them to ship me one, and got an automatic reply about their customer service person being in the hospital until the 30th. Correspondingly, I haven't gotten a reply yet.

The box was torn at the top left when it arrived:



It doesn't tilt the full 90° in portrait mode; it only goes to maybe 85°.

The monitor arrived with this message:



So, a few questions:
  1. Has anyone else not received a power adapter from dream-seller? Is it likely that they forgot to include it, or that it slid out (or was taken out) of the tear-hole?
  2. Why would the box be torn like that? Customs? Is it something to worry about?
  3. Dream-seller's return policy is 14 days after receipt of the item, so it'll only last 2 days after the 30th, when their customer service person is supposed to get out of the hospital. Is it likely that they'll honor it for 14 days after the 30th, considering that I can't even test the monitor yet?
  4. Should I file a Buyer Protection claim with eBay now, just in case, or wait until the 30th (+2 days)?
  5. Is the tilt of the monitor (85° instead of 90°) something I can complain to dream-seller about, or is that standard with CrossOver's LED-P monitors?
  6. If I can complain about the tilt, will I have to pay shipping both ways to trade monitors? How much would that cost? Does anyone have experience with that?
  7. If I can't get an adapter from dream-seller, where can I get one?

I got this thing almost a week ago, so it's annoying to be in the dark about so many issues. eh-smiley.gif
