This is what I've been concerned about. A few stuck pixels? No problem. A dead monitor? PROBLEM.

The SquareTrade warranty is looking better every day. You can get 3 years of coverage for $49. The coverage starts on your 46th day of ownership. I think you have within 30 days of your original product purchase to buy the warranty (not sure about those details).

Given the questionable level of 'craftsmanship' on these Korean monitors, having some sort of long term coverage makes a lot of sense.

DOA is very rare though.

Bcc marked my package as send today.(so i guess they do work today but dont answer messages)
However, it says it might take 48hours for the tracking code to work wich is nonsense. I shipped more packages with dhl and as soon as its shipped the tracking works within the hour.
Its weird that i have a tracking code at dhl wich doesnt work because if its a code really received by dhl then well...it should be trackable.
Received this code 7 hours ago.

@warmchords: yes more people had this issue and you are scaring the crap out of me since i bought from desame seller ^^

Did you ever think about the time it takes from the date the company sends your monitor to a local shipping route to an shipping company?

Perhaps your location is closer to DHL than these Korean companies are.

If I'm not mistaken, people here have these screens for more than 8 months, and we didn't heard much complains on dead screens etc... But it truly scary to think about situation that the screen can die after a few months and there is no one to turn to (let's be real, after a few month the Korean sellers can ignore you completely and you can't do a thing about it).
At least US/UK buyers have the TradeSquare insurance. All other buyer have nothing (like me)... biggrin.gif

I took delivery of my monitor yesterday. The box appears to be in good shape considering it has traveled a long way. The monitor is in good shape as I did not find any defects nor damages from shipping. I set up and powered on the monitor today. The picture quality looks good in Mac OS X. I did a quick scan of the screen and did not find any stuck or dead pixels. The screen appears to be uniform in a blank white screen. Although I find it a little bit in the yellowish tint as compared to my beloved HP 2511X. I guess this is the characteristic of the IPS panel. I will check out the Apple monitor to compare later. Overall, I am quite satisfied with my purchase. The text is so clear and sharp as I am typing this feedback.

Just thought I'd mention that I'm still using my Crossover Portrait monitor and haven't had a single issue in the last 6 months. Bought from AW and have been using the originally supplied power brick w/ their free Korean power adapter.

When a dhl code is given out, the first scan is made(electronicly prealerted).
Maybe its different in korea but this has always been the case from china sellers.

Code is still not working and its 2am in korea now.

Hi everyone,

I apologise in advance because this will be a long post...but some might find it interesting.

Several weeks ago i posted about a crossover a friend bought with strange red artifacts on the screen.
You can read the original post here

In the meantime i have travelled to my friend with a bunch of spare pc's and videocards and my yamakasi to try the monitor/pc out with a variation of hardware to make sure the monitor was failing.
Turns out the problem is in the monitor and since sending it back costs more then the monitor costed my friend told me to get rid of the monitor, i suggested to take it home with me.

I of course did a variation of tests at home but i couldn't really do much to 'fix' the monitor, until i got the crazy idea of explaining the situation to the seller i got my yamakasi from (green-sum) and ordering another same model crossover from my seller (the malfunctioning one comes from another seller).
The reason why i ordered another one is to be able to swap the pcb's from the good new one to the bad one and see if it fixes the problem by replacing the pcb.

Now, it turns out that my new crossover has a rev.02 version of the pcb and the malfunctioning one has a rev.03 pcb; and the wiring is different.

The led pcb is identical and i tried to swap those but that doesn't fix the problem.
See included pics, i have other pics with the wiring visible if anyone wants to see that.
Also the led pcb is on the other side inside the monitor.

What i really need to know is the details of these different pcb versions, and specifically about the 'all in one' pcb i read about here.
I think it would be good for this thread if users that feel up to opening their monitors took pics of their pcb's, it might be valuable information for others users with troubles.

For now, since the pcb's are different i can't swap them to try so the only thing i can do is order a new rev.03 from my seller but i could use a picture or serial number/type of the 'all in one' pcb, if anyone has one.
And of course if anyone has ideas or opinions what i can try your comments are very welcome.

Rev.02 pcb


Rev.03 pcb

Rev.02 pcb

Rev.03 pcb

Very interesting analysis. You should contact the other seller and question why the PCB on that one was different and why he used the rev.03 PCB.
