CrossOver 27Q LED/LED-P, 27M LED, & 2720MDP GOLD LED Monitor Club - Page 291

You probably already know this, but just to be sure: On the 4th of 5 menu tabs, the top choice is Language to switch from Korean to English. Make sure you get a MiniDisplayPort to DisplayPort to do 2560x1440 as HDMI caps out at 1920x1200.


Screen / Connections
Any weird visual artifacts are my phone camera and its flash...







Setup
Plugged it in, attached HDMI cable to MacBook and that's it. Worked right away.
Screen was very bright, but I found a different Mac profile that looks good for me. Will eventually get around the calibrating it for photos, etc. but didn't notice any odd tints. No dead pixels! (at least that I've found).
Issues
Only a few minor ones -
1. the up / down swivel on the stand seems stuck - just need to play with it I think but given that the stand isn't the best was afraid to break something. Its tilted down about 5degrees.
2. there is a second HDMI input. IN one of the closeups you can see that there is actually no "plug" - just a hole and you can see through to the inside of monitor.
3. need to brush up on my Korean for the on screen controls!
4. buzz for a second on startup...probably not a problem but going to keep an ear on it
Neither are major - I wasn't expecting a 2nd HDMI, but will ask AW about it. Probably will just close it over.
VERY HAPPY SO FAR.
Just want to let it burn in for a few days.
The monitor does buzz for a second when I turn it on.[/quote]

Thanks Elsinore!
I didn't now that about the menu language selection! Also been away and unable to play with it since I put those pictures up. Being able to read the menu will be good smile.gif

Yes, on the HDMI - need to get the DP cable still is all.

Since its Chuseok now in South Korea, i'll just wait patiently for AW's reply redface.gif
Before my MOSFET was toasted there's some weird patch of artefacts on the top left of the screen, not sure if its caused by the faulty board or my graphic card. But using my old monitor i don't have any issues.

And also, I'm on 230V supply here, it still gets toasted. I'm gonna install a fan behind the monitor when its RMAed.

That said, AW's selling cheaper pixel-perfect monitors all of a sudden, so maybe I'll go with that, if this dream-seller situation doesn't work out.

then you shouldn't be looking at Korean monitors then as the panels aren't up to spec of LG's standards that's why they are so cheap. If you want perfect then you need to go look at hp apple and dell, BUT they aren't even perfect!

take the dead pixel thing with grain of salt hardly any of us have dead pixels. Especially from AW. Seeing 1-3 dead pixels out of 4 million...psshh. Like I said I got 3 non perfect pixels that have no dead pixels.

I second this, got two 27Qs from AW and Dream-seller, both zero dead/stuck pixels

Modern consoles can only output a maximum resolution of 720p, AFAIK, so just get a good 720p monitor if you want it for a console.

The 2720MDP has optical out. If you use HDMI for the console then the audio will be sent out over the optical interface to your receiver or digital capable speakers. If you don't need the optical out then they're both fine.

I would not recommend the 3.5mm headphone jack that these monitors provide to send your audio. These screens have poor audio components and tend to buzz. If you're not going digital all the way then drive your speakers directly from the console in whatever way you can.

You can feed these monitors 1080p or 720p over HDMI. Most games on Xbox360 or PS3 aren't rendered above 720p because of a lack of graphics horsepower regardless of how you configure your console. I would still go 1080p for everything else the console displays when it can manage 1080p.

^This. The optical will make a world of difference.

After reviewing a thunderbolt display teardown, and comparing the PCB's found in there vs. the crossover, I realized that is where these Korean IPS monitors show limitations (again my opinion). After opening my Crossover, I realized I actually have 3x mosfets unlike the internals posted in post #1 which has 2x mosfets, and some of the other users only have 1x mosfet (but the only one with solid state capacitors)...unbelievable discrepancy.

At this point, I do not entirely trust the electronic components on the PCB inside these displays for power, and definitely not for Audio digital-to-analog conversion. Get the one with the optical out as you will be able to use the DAC inside a receiver of your choice. I hope that helps.
