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.

Thanks for responding. It's difficult to get Mac related info on these monitors. I checked out so many resources and forums that I've lost track of where I've learned stuff. Here's a couple of the posts I I've found:

https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3972729?start=0&tstart=0
https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4418154?start=0&tstart=0

There were a couple more posts on various sites that I havent relocated yet.

As I understand things, to connect one of these Korean monitors to a Macbook, you need an MiniDisplay port to DUAL LINK DVI adaptor like this one: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB571Z/A/mini-displayport-to-dual-link-dvi-adapter?fnode=53 . In addition, "Automatic Graphics Switching" must be turned off (System Preferences -> Energy Saver).

Are you using the that type of adaptor with the Auto Graphics Switched off?

SO Mullum, you've read that the Crossover Monitors with the display port input DO work with Macbooks? The seller websites for the display port versions state they dont work with Macbooks (or apple products) which strikes me as weird. IS that just boilerplate language left over from their non-DP models that they havent changed for the display port model ebay pages?

Why would a Crossover monitor with displayport input NOT work with a MacBook Pro minidisplay port?

So confused...

I messaged AW and they confirmed both the 27Q and 27QD's use the new updated green PCB, so I placed my order for a 27QD since it was $30 cheaper than the 27Q. The Q and QD are the same panels but the QD has a set of speakers in it (which I won't use).

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 glade 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

Horrible black light bleeding. I cannot stand that...

That's actually not backlight bleed. Just a really ****ty cam and/or something called "ips glow".

EDIT: i'm not actually sure about what I said. Please don't quote me on it.

But I think it might be back light bleed, but not as bad as the camera makes it out to be.

Thanks for the link. I am using a color profile that was uploaded by another member, however the problem it seems is that when I use Nvidia surround it overrides the color profiles since it "sees" all three monitors as one and unfortunately that particular one is a lot bluer than the rest. Is it a hardware default that I an unfortunately stuck with?

regarding using these monitors with Macbook Pros I found this recently created page:

plenty of posts regarding this in the thread. the blue pcb has one mosfet while the green has 3. the single mosfet has been known to burn out.

mine came with a blue pcb, but I didn't ask for a green one as I didn't know about the difference at the time. pre-purchase communication goes a long way. ask some questions first and let them know you want something decent and they'll usual sort you out.

incidentally, does anyone know if the blue PCB contributes to the yellow tinting on parts of the screen?

thanks for those links - unfortunately none of them mention which version of OSX they are running. I doubt they are all on snow leopard, however, so I suppose there is either hope - or that my monitor must have developed a problem.

Indeed, I have two of those adaptors - both exhibit the garbled text. My Macbook Air does not have "Automatic Graphics Switching" - neither did my iMac.

The mini displayport to displayport method is the best way to connect - theres no conversion and no need for a £70 adaptor/cable. A mini displayport to displayport cable is cheap as chips on ebay (or wherever). There is, however, the extra cost of that model of Crossover (which doesnt have a tempered glass version). I wish I had gone this route.

As for the ebay sellers stating that the monitors arent compatible with Macs - I think that is just easier for them to say that than it is to try to explain what will be required.
I havent found anyone else that has reported online the same problem I have - Im beginning to wonder if the problem could be from a broken pin on the dvi cable itself (rather than the adapter). The cable HAD worked fine in the past (it was a brand new cable) - but those pins are prone to damage.
