My experience with these monitors physically has let me to believe that these monitor are not worth any enthusiasm at the current price, if they were $200 I would say it's worth to take the gamble. At $400 to $500, it's way too expensive, with practically no warranty (after 14-30 days we had to pay the shipping back and forth between Korea and USA/EUROPE/AUSSY..), and absolutely zero workmanship (I had read some monitors have "missed" to include the HDML ports for the models that supposed to have HDML ports, now that's hell of some "workmanship" and "quality assurance (QA)" isn't it?
Buy from the right seller and you do have warrenty.
This crossover is made of aluminium, has a sturdy stand and indeed far less reported problems.
There are alot different people buying these lg panels...you get different craftmanship at each other seller. This one has the best chance of success so far.

Aluminum, feels more like steel to me, and powder coated too.

What's different about the Crossover 2720 and the 2730? I'm seeing both in my searches on eBay, but can't tell if it's just a typo or not.

Looks like the only difference is 2730 has no display port while 2720 has the display port. It's counter intuitive to name the higher model number that is a step down from the lower number model, but that appears to be the game they are playing.

On eBay 2720 has a higher price tag than 2730, that should be an indication that the 2730 is indeed a step down from 2720.

They are not made of aluminium, but the cheap steal, like those used in the appliances in 1950s! get one of the monitor for yourself and you will see what kind of "craftsmanship" they have: NONE! these rejected LG panels slapped together in mom and pop garage shops in Korea, the far east, not the same consumer grade monitors we are used to in the west.

Well, I feel very sorry for those who spent $300 to $500 Plus for the cheap Korean monitors that has no success, myself included, unfortunately. At least I have the honesty to come out to admit that it was a big failure, but how many of those who are disappointed with what they have gotten actually admit that they made a bad decision and got screwed by the Koreans? The human "pride" had prevented them to mentally accept and admit that they had been screwed, so instead they were more likely to post the exact opposite of how they feel in this forum, by praising these Korean monitors, isn't that the truth?

don't know about that, but you get what you paid for. I've seen worst craftsmanship from products made locally so the crossover sheet metal folds aren't that half bad.
post #3847 of 6483
Well ive heard good enough stuff about this monitor. Combined with a good seller and thus warrenty we get a good choice i think.

There is really nothing wrong with the "craftmanship" of the Crossover monitors, its not aluminum but some kind of steel, yes.
I have seen worse quality screens from famous manufacturers such as Asus and Samsung. Like someone already said before me, you get what you pay for.

If you want "top-notch" build quality/design, go for Apple/Dell or so and pay a premium price-tag.
I rather have the exact same panel quality for half the price.

We aren't buying them for the quality craftmanship... people buy them because in the end, the screens look exactly the same for a few hundred cheaper.

You are not getting the "exact same panel quality" in these Crossover monitors, these are rejected panels, panels that are not good enough for DELL/HP/APPLE and other legit manufacturers. and you are also not getting the same quality for all other parts of these Korean monitors like you would with DELL/HP/APPLE. Get yourself a DELL or APPLE, next to one of these Korean monitors, and see it yourself!

My point is: the price difference between a DELL and a Crossover 27" monitor has narrowed to the point now that it no longer makes any logical sense to save few dollars for these cheap, poorly built, unreliable, questionable-warranty, high-cost-for-return-shipping-for-repairs, Korean monitors. A supremely built DELL U2713HM monitor with multiple video input ports, USB-3 hubs, sturdy stand, no dead pixels, no backlight bleed, 3 year warranty, using only the highest grade LG panels, for $484 to $559 from DELL or Amazon, beats any Korean Korean monitors sold on eBay from even the best sellers like AW.
