I have a similar experience. I just got my 27Q LED-P from Astrobile yesterday. I read all the complaints about him after I placed my order. Besides that it took a fortnight to arrive I have no complaints about him. Maybe I was lucky.
Monitor costed 300€. Customs added Finnish VAT 23% 69€. So total cost was 369€.
Monitor is absolutely great. I haven't found any defect pixels. Maybe I just didn't find them :-) I ran tests from http://www.flexcode.org/lcd2.html
My main reason for writing is my problems with display shutting down refusing to wake up. It wakes up by itself after a while and after another while shuts down again. Checked with 2 dual-DVI cables. Checked power brick issues: 24,5V OK. I reinstalled graphics drivers clean install. Played with refresh rates 57Hz...64Hz.
All the time thinking monitor is probably faulty, finally narrowed it down to my graphics card Nvidia GTX 260.
To get monitor working with GTX260:
- from 2 DVIs only 1 is actually dual-DVI
- leave the other DVI empty. If anything is connected to other port (HDMI-TV, other monitor even when they are off) crossover keeps shutting down randomly.
Now everything is working smoothly!
I want to be able to use HDMI-TV at the same time. Thinking of buying ASUS HD7850-DC2-2GD5-V2 next. Any comments?
Lousy picture but I was trying to demonstrate that there is plenty of room for several browser windows.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
It seems the failure was due to DVI-cable. I changed it back to the one that came with package. It is working wonderfully now even with HDMI-TV at the same time.Edited by csjanne - 12/22/12 at 5:39am
