Does the LED-P just have a nicer stand? If I'm going to mount this thing should I just get the standard LED? Then I could get tempered glass for example?

yes, just order the cheaper shimian or catleap if you don't need the stand.


I'm still waiting for my Crossover from dream-seller.
It's been so painful waiting, and waiting.. and hopefully I can get it tomorrow.

Please, please, order your LCDs from one of the other sellers who actually ships on time with fast shipping.

Dream-seller marked my order as shipped 2 days after ordering, but didn't give a tracking number. I sent an ebay message requesting a tracking number. No reply for 2 days. I sent another message asking for tracking number or cancel the order.
Dream-seller responds the next day. It's 6 days from order date (including weekend). Says the order was transmitted to manufacturer, but got lost.

I do not think sellers should mark an item as "shipped" unless they give a tracking number. If they don't have a tracking number, it didn't ship!

So, 9 days after placing order, and hopefully USPS will deliver tomorrow. Lame EMS/USPS. They taking 4 days to ship it. I should have ordered from dcsamsungmall for the Fedex express 2-day. I would have had the LCD 5 days ago.

Wait seriously? People are spending 50-100 more just for a better stand? I'm lost now.

Can someone explain why I would go for a Crossover LED or LED-P over the cheaper Catleap? Also, why I would or wouldn't want glass?

Really appreciate it.

If one wants a stand that has height adjustments and can pivot, then aftermarket stands cost around $45+, at the same time there arent many to choose from.

Better stand, different aesthetics mostly. Stand is much more adjustable, buttons are hidden on the back. There's not as much writing on the bezel as there is on the Catleap. Casing is mostly aluminum instead of all plastic like on the Shimian and Catleap.

I paid more because I just liked the overall look and build of the Crossover better, and the stand for portrait was appealing to me. I don't have a wall backing up against my desk, so a wall mounted arm didn't make much sense for me and this way I don't have to play around with changing out the stand because the one on the LED-P is pretty well made and sturdy.

Not sure where you get the $100 price, but the standard Crossover (non-pivot) supposedly has a much better stand than the Catleap stand that "leans".
The prices for a standard Crossover were about $400-$410 for the first two weeks (including last). I'm at work right now so I'm not sure what the going rate is now.

Also, when I checked the Achieva & Shimean models were about $380. So, that's a $20 difference, not $50-$100. That's the same price as if just ordering a stand from monoprice, so I'm not sure why you're shocked that people are buying Crossovers for the better stand.

No. The Crossover's enclosure has better build quality. It's made of metal.
There are two main models, the 27Q LED & 27Q LED-P. The -P means it includes an height-adjustable & pivoting stand. The sellers charge about $20 for the -P model.

I jumped in BF3, and it was choppy. I bought a 2nd Lightning Extreme, but then OCN iCrap tells me to turn of AA (you don't need it at this res) and... low and behold, it's perfect. Just as it was on my 1080p TN panel. Turns out I didn't need the 2nd 580 afterall.

My vram usage is around 2GB on some maps though, but thats not much higher than it was previously.

No issues with response time?

It was low to high, some crossover led-p's are going for 470ish


What are people's thoughts on tempered glass vs non-tempered? Or is it all tempered and one guy decided to focus on it in his listing?
