I just bought this monitor and I just want to say AssessoriesWhole is top notch. They are definitely one of the best sellers on the inter webs. I hope they are around for a long time.
Before I start I just want to say that I bought a Crossover 27Q model with the fixed stand. It is in almost perfect condition.Now for the feedback:
I hope this feedback can be sent back to the manufacturer because it will make the monitor absolutely perfect.
The one flaw this monitor has is the brightness control.
It has about 17 levels or steps of brightness ranging from Blinding Bright
I understand that most people that are buying this monitor will be using it for games and movies so they will want it bright.
However, I am using it for productivity and financial applications and frequently the windows contain white background with tiny black/grey text.
Even at the lowest brightness setting it is too bright to look at for lengthy periods of time unless you are in a bright room with sunlight. That is a serious flaw in a monitor.My suggestion is to redo the 17 level/steps to be meaningful. The lowest brightness setting should be very dim.
For example, the lowest brightness setting is equivalent to my Samsung F2380 at 88% brightness. You read that right, EIGHTY-EIGHT! That is just too bright to look at in a dim room for lengthy periods of time.
I would suggestion resetting the brightness so the monitor can become very dim like all other normal monitors.
It would also be great if a fix could be developed for current monitors. I don't mind opening up mine to replace some parts, I'd be happy to pay a little to fix this problem. And I would buy more monitors
I hope my feedback gets back to the factory so they can fix this problem with this otherwise great monitor.
