CrossOver 27Q LED/LED-P, 27M LED, & 2720MDP GOLD LED Monitor Club - Page 461

post #4601 of 6483
I have an early 2011 15" Macbook Pro. It has the AMD Radeon HD 6490M 256 MB graphics card.

I want to connect two CrossOver monitors. I'm not into gaming. Just need two good large monitors. My work isnt video of photo related. And I'm confused!

I'm trying to figure out the following:

Is my graphics card up to the job? It's not one of the cards listed on the sellers websites but I've read forum posts of people who have connected early 2011 macbooks to Crossovers.

If I buy one of the models with a display port input, can I connect this directly to the Thunderbolt port on the laptop or do I still need some kind of adaptor? It seems like that should work but I feel I'm missing something because the seller's websites for the display port models still say they're not compatible with macbooks.

I read on many posts that users have been able to use a Thunderbolt to Dual LInk DVI adaptor to connect a macbook pro to a Crossover, if so, why do all the sellers say the monitors dont work with Macbooks?

Your help is appreciated.

Thanks for your feedback! It looks to be a high bleeding to me, as I am used to TN panel. What about you all? Do you think it's a "reasonable" bleeding?

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 thought I noticed a little backlight bleeding in the lower right had corner. It was actually just glare, that is normal with these screens. I just had to rotate my monitor 2.5 degrees to the right. Problem solved. Picture perfect while gaming.

I finally bought my third and final Crossover and this time I went with AW. Gotta admit it has been my best experience so far. No deads/tinting/etc and very fast delivery. The other 2 crossover's I've bought were from LightnSpace (had minimal yellow tinting in the corner) and Dream-seller (3 deads and blue blotchy spot visible when picture displayed is dark).






From L to R, LnS, AW, D-S.

Btw, does anyone know if there's a way to recalibrate the colors? The one from Dream-Seller is intensely blue as you can see in the third picture and it kinda sucks when using NVidia Surround.

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
HELP ANYONE?

I'd love to hear other peoples opinion too. I'm going to contact AW to see what can be done. I know people have received far better monitors, but then again far worse and I really don't want to send this back; £100 is the cheapest I can find and I may end up having to pay 2 ways if AW isn't satisfied with the defects,

My main concern is the back-light bleeding and the yellowing that is mainly along the bottom and the entire bottom right corner. Has any one found a way to correct this? I have the blue pcb if that helps.

I'll contact AW tonight after work, their ebay page states 100% guarantee, but I'm not sure what they are guaranteeing, they might be unconcerned with my complaints as I have no dead pixels...

What posts ? please post links where they specifically mention using the Thunderbolt (mini displayport, there isnt an actual thunderbolt version yet) to Dual Link DVI adaptor.
I have posted about this set up NOT working with recent versions of osx - but my posts get buried beneath all the non mac user posts (relatively few mac users on this thread).
Since snow leopard I have *not been able to use my Crossover with any Mac with a thunderbolt/mini display port. I think the problem lies with that adapter and lion/mountain lion.

*the text is garbled - see my posts with images #2928 and #2932

Ive been considering selling my 27Q and getting the other crossover which has the display port input, as this is known to be without issues.

So, where do I start...

I ordered my monitor on Jan 14th, but due to paypal/ebay problems the payment reached the seller (AW) on the 17th. Monitor was shipped on the next day. Received the monitor on mid-day of Jan 23rd. The shipping took a while because I live in the Middle East. tongue.gif

After an hour of using the monitor and checking for dead/stuck/whatever pixels (for about 5 mins on white and black backgrounds) I found out there where none! biggrin.gifthumb.gif
I am EXTREMELY happy with this purchase. I'm glad I went with AW. They responded to my messages and helped my clear the paypal/ebay problem I had! Person also said he would be sure to give me a good monitor thumbsupsmiley.png

I really am grateful I found this thread. Found lots of useful info. smile.gif

I'm sorry I don't have a nice camera. So you'll have to deal with the iPhone 4 pics. biggrin.gif
