I bought a Crossover 27Q LED from BCC on a friday late november 2012 (actually I bought a Yamakasi Catleap but it was out of stock so I could choose any 27" monitor in their store, so i went with the Crossover 27Q LED instead. It didn't have free shipping like the Yamakasi one, but they would send it anyway).
It took 2 days for the monitor to get from their warehouse to the Korean airport, i guess they did some testing on it so I wasn't going to get it until the next week.
On monday the 10th of December I got a call from Mr. UPS-man and they said that my package had arrived in Sweden and that they wanted ~650 (about 100$) SEK before they could deliver the monitor. Before BCC asked me what i would like to value the invoice at so i told them to put it at 200$, guess I could have gotten away with less. But I ended up with a nice monitor for about 2900 SEK which is a catch.
The monitor came in a thick box with some foam around it, once opened the monitor was there well packed. I was worried that this monitor wouldn't fit in my desk but it did, it is a very low monitor for it's size. I also bought a separate DVI-D cable because I didn't want to get any issues with the one included.
The only annoying thing about this monitor is that the ouput for DVI and power is between the monitor and the stand, a very awkward position and I had some trouble getting the cables in. The powercable was tricky because one side is flat and you get no feedback to which way the flat side goes, turns out it's flat side against monitor.
Once everything was set up and I was ready to start my PC, something happened...
It was the brightest light i've ever seen and the monitor went on just fine displaying the bios screen and everything. Colours are great out of box so no need to adjust. No dead pixels, atleast I haven't noticed any ,I haven't been looking very much for them anyway. There is also zero backlight bleed. And the adapter does not get that warm, in sweden we are using 220-230V power outlets
Now I have had my Crossover little over a month and it's still working great. Can't say I'm dissapointed. This is a huge step up from 1680x1050 TN, i've had to lower graphics in some games running a 560 ti with 1GB of VRAM.
There is one thing that i've noticed, in Arma 2. When I now zoom in, objects such as buildings and trees is flickering. This got better when nvidia released new drivers so now it is very little flickering, maybe a window in a building. I don't think this is a issue with the monitor.
I've heard people mention that there is a ticking noise from the power adapter. I've started to hear a very low ticking noise after I've turned everything off. I haven't located the sound yet but if it is the adapter my guess is that it's the sound of cheap plastic expanding because of the heat. I'm not sure about this but I would like to know what it could be.
And for my question: How do you know if your panel is A- or A?
