ok so i got my crossover led-p from bigclothcraft today.
i have no idea why this monitor has a screw on the back.... i removed the screw and dont intent to put it back in again. i can adjust height, tilt and angle perfectly without any problem.
The weight of this monitor is quite alot. it looks sturdy, good build and solid. (but the weight is a problem if i need to send this monitor back)
Here is a picture of the box after i removed the bubble foil around the box. (those purple things are damage to my iphone's camera.
See that sticker on the side of the box....."zero dead pixel". i ordered a normal version, not a perfect pixel version.
So i thought hmmm i had trouble with communication with this seller maybe they shipped a pixel perfect version instead.
And yeah after plugging in the monitor i checked about 5 minutes for dead pixels on a full green blue and red screen, and i could not find dead or stuck pixels. But i had done my research and know that these A- panels must have a other problem then. so i tested them on backlight bleed by making the screen black and brightness all up. Unfortunatly there is indeed some light bleed. its quite bad when viewed at a black background, but i really tried to search for it while normal windows use and couldnt see it at all.
(again, the purple stuff is damage of my iphone camera and that white dot is my mouse pointer)
So yeah, light bleeding, but i dont give a poop since its only noticable for me at a black screen.
first games i had problems using the resolution for some reason when i restarted some games i could select resolutions again. Works fine now to select 1080p................but you will not do that. you will put other graphics down but keep the resolution. for example in far cry 3 with 2x AA and this resolution i do not see aliasing anymore. everything is 100% smooth edged and it looks awesome.
a minor thing i do not like is the screen is a dust magnet. there is no dust behind the screen, but there is on the screen. while checking dead pixels i keep seeing small dots where i thought it maybe was a pixel, but its all dust gathering on the screen. i hope this ends soon....its probaly because its new tech....new tech usally collects dust.
The colors on this display are not really better then the dell 2408WFP i had before borrowed from my brother. maybe by a small amount but definatly not much. The brightness of this display goes good enough. but well the 2408wfp was also praised for its colors for a 800 euro monitor that day so this is pretty good news that colors are comparable.
i also have the feeling blacks are on desame level as the wfp....wich means i cant tell anything about how deep the black goes. its desame as im used to.
All in all im very happy with this purchase. it works (right now) and hope it stays working. the last 2 days i got in contact with a leo from BCC. i recommend to ask in your ebay message for leo. the guy is much more helpful then other people at that company.
It began with a bad story, people lieing to me about shipping.
But this turned out to be a good purchase(so far, i have no idea how long it will last, but the outside quality doesnt say it falls apart quickly!)
If you ask for a leo at BCC, i also recommend you to purchase this monitor.
And about customs tax, be careful in the netherlands with values. they quickly think 27inch must be at least worth 400usd here. i purchased it and it was valued at 116dollar not including shipping and dhl told me i had to pay 74,13 euro. thats not 21% of what i had to pay!!! so they wanted more then 21% tax!
But.....someone at DHL(gotta love them) screwed up....at the door i had to sign that i received it and then the driver quickly stepped back into his car and drove away.....Nothing about paying something! So i keep that 74 euro while 2 people at dhl confirmed i had to pay it today! dont expect yourself to be so lucky though!
Im very pleased today with this beauty of a monitor. go get one!(read: to get one at BCC or AW)
