i've asked around, and from what i gather the blue behind the vesa area is ok, it's the (green) one that you can see to the right that is important. is your bleed evident with an image, or just with no signal/black screen? you could try loosening screws, but most ips have some bleed, and this is mentioned by the sellers. i assume you are dvi to dvi, no adapter?

Yeah dvi to dvi. There's also a green/yellow tint to the screen which I ignored as I can always make a new colour profile, but it occurred to me this is a bad idea as all the images I make will look wrong on a different screen! Not good. guess its the luck of the draw and I got unlucky. I still need to do some testing when I'm home but AW seems reasonable

I need to check the bleed again, it was more evident the darker the image, but I'd much rather have a bunch of dead pixels than light bleed as it ruins the atmosphere of games and films

Are you sure it's light bleed and not IPS glow? Does it fade away if you look at the monitor from a lower angle?

I have sent a message to AW regarding my defect through eBay's messaging system. Does anyone know how quickly I will get a response? If they take my unit back, do you think they will price match the current price of the monitor which is $30 cheaper than I originally paid? Also, would they consider letting me go from the LED-P to the LED? I realize I may only get answers to these questions from AW directly, but I am in some way just spilling what's on my mind.

AW has a employee in these forums you could always send them a message back about 20-30 pages though to figure out their user name.

Hey guys, I recently got a crossover 27q led-p and an asus gtx 680 direct-cu ii 2gb.

.... I'm thinking of getting a second crossover.

Would the second screen run fine using the display-port -> dvi adapter?

Also, would you recommend returning my card and getting a 4gb 680 if i'm running 2 of these screens?

Any help would be appreciated. thx smile.gif

Actually I may be talking wet here, changing the colour profile should be fine, I just hope I can get it uniform
