CrossOver 27Q LED/LED-P, 27M LED, & 2720MDP GOLD LED Monitor Club - Page 298

post #2971 of 6483
Good, love this monitor. ONE white dead pixel in lower left corner about 1/2" from the bezel barely noticeable unless its on a completely black screen. Slight light bleed from lower right corner but very very minimal. Color seemed to be a bit warm though. I toned it down with CCC. Power brick does not seem to get very hot and neither does the monitor. I used a standard power cord to the brick, the adapter provided does not have a ground which I feel is important.

BTW - I wrote AW about the empty HDMI port. He responded that the manufacturer is switching from HDMI 1 to 1.6 (might have the versions wrong). Doesn't really explain why its empty though. He said he would "compensate" for it...but haven't gotten any detail on that yet. Will let you know.
I'm currently using HDMI cable which doesn't allow the max resolution of the monitor. Mini-DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable arrives today. Purchased on Amazon. If it comes through flicker free, etc. I'll post the brand and link. I have a MBP Retina on the other end.
Interesting that at the apple store they don't have that type of cable and you have to go buy them 3rd party....

That's good to know the power on noise appears to be standard with the gold. Regarding the empty HDMI, definitely report back with what AW offers. Maybe I will try the same. The HDMI technically should support the native resolution if its version 1.4. I think OSX isn't showing all available resolutions, according to this thread on macrumors. When looking up my Mini DP > HDMI monoprice adapter it only said up to 1920x1080, so that could be it as well. Regardless, I'm also going the DisplayPort route. I just ordered this cable last night which should allow the full 2560 resolution from the iMac.

As far as I have been able to tell, there is no X to HDMI adapter that will do above 1920x1200.

I see. Good thing I'll be ditching the adaptor.

Some questions for you guys, how much better will 2560x1440 be on a 27" screen when compared to 1920x1080 on a 24" screen? And what will games running at 1080p look like on a 2560x1440 screen? Because some games do not go above 1080p.

Also, is there any way to get an xbox to run on it even if it has a hdmi connection? I know it will not run the xbox at 2560x1440, but I just dont know much about these quadhd screens much.

The main board is teal, and if the LED controller matches in color you may have a MOSFET issue. I'll trade you my teal one thumb.gif

Sounds good to me lol, was going to be depressed if they turned out to be duds or a hassle. Could've bought a mid tier zoom telephoto for my camera and was kicking myself in the pants about it. And ok lol, just $100 for each of them tongue.gif

Ditto - couldn't find anything at higher resolution than that with HDMI.

I ordered this cable: Accell B119B-007J UltraAV Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Cable

Had read a few comments on the one you purchased that there was flicker, etc. and that this was resolved with a different cable. So I spent $8 more for one that seemed to have universally good results. Will be curious if the one you got works out or not - certainly hope so. I wanted to just be done and over with no returns, etc.

Will keep you posted on what if anything AW offers to compensate....

I see you intend to use your crossover with your iMac and you will be using a mini-display port (MDP) to display port (DP) cable.
Once you have this setup - could you let me know your results please ?
It would be essential for me to know what version of OSX you are using.
I have a 2011 27" iMac and I'm using the crossover (the 27Q LED-P) with an Apple MDP to dual link DVI-D adapter. Previously everything worked flawlessly - but recently (I believe since the OSX 10.7.5 update) Ive been getting garbled text on the crossover. You can see pictures in my post about it on this thread - page 293, post 2928.
