I tried a triple monitor mount with a listed 9kg/panel capacity, and it left my monitors pointing at the floor, as the spring to hold them vertical was not strong enough to keep my crossovers pointing forward. I haven't disassembled one again to get a weight measurement on them, but I would not be confident about a 9kg max capacity arm being able to handle a crossover well.

I got a >15kg measurement when trying to ship the monitor and power brick, so I think it's safe to say that the monitor is at least 12 Kg.

Face palm, and face palm again, no one wants to believe me

http://www.amazon.com/MX-Wall-Mount-LCD-Arm/dp/B0028407WW/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1352073331&sr=8-2&keywords=mx+arm
"The sleek MX LCD Arm accommodates mid-sized displays and all-in-one computers weighing up to 30 lbs. (13.6 kgs)"

I use this on my apple cinema display, the torque adjustment isn't even maxed (around 80%) out and you can darn well bet that the Apple's heavier @ 23.5lbs or 10.8KG
The torque adjustments on my other two MX wall mounts used with my two crossovers on this are just about half maxed.

Please scroll back and find my posts and check out my review of the CrossOver and head towards the ICC Profile Section. Hope it helps.

I have tried calibrating the color profile, it helps at the margins but doesn't really address the main issue, which is that the settings don't go low enough.

I've read your review, must be nice with 3 giant monitors smile.gif

The other thing is, even if calibrating the color profile worked 100% in replacing the brightness setting it still doesn't affect the power draw. No matter what the color setting, it stays around 44w/hr (39w/hr dark screen) at the lowest setting and a whopping 77w/hr at max brightness. I feel this monitor could easily go down to the low 30w/hr range if they fixed this issue, which would be a nice little bonus in terms of less heat output.

I'm a programmer so I use a lot of black text on white backgrounds so I'm especially sensitive to this issue. And I know it's probably a real easy fix for them to reprogram their monitors ( at least the months not made yet). They just need to do it.

Here's a picture showing my CrossOver at the lowest brightness setting next to my other monitor at 90% brightness (I also have 2 other monitors that I've compared with). Actual light output is similar with slight differences in color :

I just received my 2730MD (Ordered from BCC)

no Dead Pixels, but it does have some bad backlight leakage:

take a look:

Has anybody tried to fix the backlight uniformity and bleeding?
Is it worth cracking the enclosure open to try and fix?

I mean using Crossover 27Q with PS3 1080p in general.
When I select display output with the PS3. Only 720p works.

I believe it's because these guys don't have built in scalers, not sure if that's the culprit but it's what comes to mind.
