CrossOver 27Q LED/LED-P, 27M LED, & 2720MDP GOLD LED Monitor Club - Page 460

post #4591 of 6483
I purchased my 27Q Led non pivot on Thursday night. I chose to deal with AW. I asked to ensure I had a green pcb, and hopefully no stuck or dead pixels. He emailed back saying that they were checking the monitor over now to meet my requests. I followed the tracking, S. Korea to Anchorage, to Memphis all within 24 hours. Then 12 hours later, into Mississauga Ontario. Fed ex delivered Monday afternoon. I've been buying things through ebay for many years, some retailers take 3 days just to ship. I had originally asked for the package to be marked at $100. Ted from AW emailed back to say that it may look a little suspicious to Customs, and that I may end up paying more due to false info. The package came marked at $200 and as a sample product. I only had to pay ~$36 in fees, no biggie.

So I unpacked the monitor, no damage, or scratches. Green pcb seen through the back casing. Fire it up, run colour slides of all different colours. Spent 20 minutes trying to find a dead pixel, thought I found one, but it was just a small speck of dust. I feel like I've got a perfect display! Played some Far Cry 3 on it. Looks amazing, had to lower my video quality to medium as very high was too much for my 1gb gtx 460's sli. Now onto finding a better graphics card.

I couldn't be happier with my monitor. I recommend dealing with Accessories Whole, fast shipping, excellent communication and seems like an honest seller.

Yeh the Pixel Perfect looks a bit overpriced indeed. Why not the LED-P by the way? I found this one, a "P" one for £20 more.
Let us know how it goes for you (as for the custom aspect). wink.gif

Thanks for you feedback. Looks really good with AW, as everybody here. I am now just afraid of my GPU (GTX 580) if I do that screen upgrade. rolleyes.gif

Looks like you got lucky with that monitor! What about back light bleed? I think pre-purchase communication goes a long way with AW, just wish I'd know what to ask for.

I wanted the cheapest I could find while sticking with AW. I was originally looking for a replacement for my 22 inch budget monitor I was given a year ago, I only wanted to spend about £150 then stumbled on an article from another site about these monitors and I couldn't resist, so yeah, I was already spending £100 over my budget so couldn't justify spending an extra £20! If the monitor fails my tests tonight I might swap it for a -p model...

i have two blue boards, on the right when looking at the back, the LED DRIVER (the one that apparently seems to be overheating/burning) and the one that the power/dvi cables plug into..i contacted dream-seller about the boards and this is what he sent me..

Hello.
Thank you for your message.

If you want other PCB board, we can ship to you. But we need to charge for it.

Could you confirm that which PCB board do you want?
Is it LCD Digitalizer or LED Driver?

LCD Digitalizer is $45, LED Driver is $30 including shipping cost.

Please feel free to ask if you have any further questions.

Thank you.
Best regards,

- dream-seller

do i need both of these? does this seem fair? should he have to send me the correct boards cost-free (through paypal dispute) if these are known defective?
i should note that as of right now the only issues i have are the screen fuzz that is corrected by powering off/on, and a couple screen flickers that were fixed by retightening the dvi cable

I finally pulled the trigger and bought a Perfect Pixel Crossover 27Q from AW after having lurked this thread for quite some time. I had originally planned to buy a normal version but I decided to go for a Perfect Pixel version because i only had to pay about a third of the price (kind of a gift).

AW handled my order very quickly, I ordered and payed for the monitor on Monday night and on Tuesday morning i received an email saying my order had been processed and is now waiting to be picked up by fedex. Then a couple hours later it was picked up by fedex and now the package is on it's way to Finland.
Now I'm just hoping that the monitor survives the shipping and gets here intact and fully working.

I bought my 27Q (with tempered glass) last July - since then I have not been able to use it. The problem seems to stem from OSX - specifically "Lion 10.7.x" and "Mountain Lion 10.8.x".
When I bought it I had an iMac running "Snow Leopard 10.6.x" - connected the Crossover using a mini displayport to dual link dvi adaptor (Apple) cable and all was good. I then sold the iMac and bought a Macbook Air which was running Lion - the image now showed garbled text (as seen in images I posted to this thread several months ago - posts #2928 and #2932). Before I sold the iMac I updated it to Lion - the image on the Crossover now showed garbled text. I hoped an update from Apple would fix it (on my Macbook Air). Several months later came Mountain Lion - same problem. Several more months later and a few more updates from Apple - the problem persists. I have two mini displayport to dual link dvi adaptors so I know its not a broken cable.

I tried to keep in touch with this thread up to about post 3000, but resigned myself to being at the mercy of Apple. Am I the only Mac user suffering here ? It's such a shame to have this monitor sitting gathering dust - unable to use it ! Worse still Im having to use an 11" Macbook Air screen 24/7 !

Should I sell it and wait for the (rumoured) imminent update to the Apple Thunderbolt Displays (£$£$£$£$) ?

So I excitedly opened it and checked the back and through the white grill I can see a large green PCB with a smaller blue PCB in the middle of the monitor rear... so guess I have the bad PCB? When turned on I noticed quite heavy light bleed at both bottom corners. Then I tried baldurs gate enhanced and the image flickered badly until exited the game. At least there aren't any dead pixels (I think). I really don't wanna send this beauty back. I've connected my own power lead to the supplied charger and I've ordered a new dvi-d to see if that helps. I'd be grateful for any advice on these issues. Can I tighten/ loosen the back screws to reduce the light bleed? Is the bleed a good enough reason to ask for a replacement. Thanks for any help folks!

Ok, update:, the bleeding doesn't seem as bad as I thought, I think some of it was the glare that comes with this type of screen and I've been using monitors with anti-glare for so long. Here are some images:

low brightness (my preferred under dim lighting):

mid brightness:

highest brightness:


Note: the bleeding looked far worse when close up with the camera, but I imagine even A+ monitors would show a similar effect, am I right about this?

the in-game flickering has gone, it was an issue with the game, not the monitor.

I have noticed a mild yellow tint along the bottom of the screen, this may be due to the back-light bleeding at the bottom corners

I won't start calibrating the colours until the new DVI cable comes.

also, I came across this trick for reducing back-light bleeding: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?s=d39bb728fa29664704ac0710022d4ed3&t=1032268
Anyone tried this?
post #4598 of 6483
Going to preface this by saying that I did in fact search the thread but can't find the information I am looking for, that said:

Can anyone recommend a proper voltage converter for LED-P? Bought mine mid last year and the flickering problems I described a few months ago have mostly went away but I notice they return when I have certain appliances on my main setup at home, so want to try this.

Thanks!

Putting together my new set up and I really want to get 2 of these korean 27" ips panels for it.

The thing is I've only got 1 7970 to drive both of them. Only one of them would be used for actual gaming, whereas the other would be used for web surfing, streaming video, coding etc.

I've been doing a lot of reading but I'm having a hard time figuring out what my best options are with the one card since there are so many variations and models. Anything to point me in the right direction would be helpful! smile.gif
