Re: Amazon Vendors for 27Q

Hello,

I have $400 in credit at Amazon that's burning a hole in my pocket. I would really like one of those Crossfire 27Q monitors. There are multiple offers - they all charge a bit more than the cheapest Ebay vendors. Has anybody bought one of these through Amazon Marketplace? Any vendors there to avoid?

I'm thinking of paying the premium for a "pixel-perfect" one.... Just to lower the probability
of winding up with something that I have to box up and reship.

Also, I'm not sure if my video card will work. It's an ATI Radeon 5850. In the compatibility list
that many of these vendors quote, it's listed as NO. I'm not sure I understand why - it does have a pair of dual-link DVI connectors, and is supposed to support the required resolution.

If I have to buy a video card, that blows the value proposition. BTW, I'm not a gamer. I am a
part-time computer programmer, also do a teensy bit of graphics design in support of my business, and would LOVE more screen real estate. But could care less about refresh rate or lag.

I found at least one post somewhere, where somebody said that he uses an HD5850 with one of these Korean monitors, and it even displays the BIOS stuff.

Click on my review on my sig and read it. Yes you can request the seller to sell through amazon marketplace. Some do it, most don't. Have to inquire to know.

Now for those who quite doubt the one day shipping that I had when I first ordered these monitors and was "New" to the community.
AccessoriesWhole (AW) pulled it off again. Had to send back 2 monitors and they triple, quadrupole checked and even sent pictures to make sure it was to my liking.
Well.. here it is again, proof of 1 day shipping.



Now if the Customer service, warranty, guarantees, "A+" panels and all the other crap doesn't entice you to get these monitors.
Maybe the tracking info will.
Estimation Delivery Feb 25th...
It's on the truck already for delivery the next day, Feb 21st. GG!

Now stop asking me who should you buy from people!'
AW all the way, and mention Cloudz00x sent ya for a lil extra discount. Not much but every penny counts right? I get nothing from this btw. Me and several other members just bought a good amount of monitors from him and are extremely pleased. So we try to spread the info as much as we can to aid you guys from not doing stupid mistakes and regretting a purchase. Descadent, myself, kaliptos and others are like volunteers for this crap. So with us spreading out the news and bringing more business, they decided to aid with a lil discount if mentioned. Plus my posts go up =p

Your 5850 will be just fine. I don't know where the post started about Bios not showing up. Everyone I've talked to and for myself, as long as the Monitor is plugged into the first gpu you get a post info, bios etc;
You'll be fine. Pull the trigger and enjoy.
P.S It's CrossOver not CrossFire. How dare you!buttkick.gif

Looks like my tracking, and this is to Canada.



It's basically like using Amazon 1-day shipping except its from Korea and included in the price tongue.gif

ok, I'm trying something new. Mac Mini 2012 with the Apple Mini Displayport to Dual Link DVI adapter. I've got it coming up, but it's shutting off every 5 seconds or so. This works in Windows 8 via bootcamp, so there is something with OS X that is causing this. I know that most people are from PC background, but I'm not sure if anybody has seen something like this before and could offer any suggestions.

There is also a small whine (which is a bit hard to hear in this video), and a shutoff noise whenever this shuts off and tries to turn back on.

I've swapped out adapters, DVI Cables, etc, but nothing seems to be keeping this thing on. I know it should be working although OSX does not like it for some reason. It could be due to display drivers but I'm thinking it may be something to do with invalid EDID data coming back from the monitor.

Can somebody with a 27Q (preferably a blade) run this program: http://www.entechtaiwan.com/util/moninfo.shtm and send me back the output. I'm trying to see if my EDID has been flashed wrong or if this is a common case with these monitors. It seems like Windows isn't as picky with the EDID data, but OSX is.

Ouch! That noise would definitely be a deal killer for me! It sounds like whine out of a ferrite transformer in a DC-DC converter. If I had this unit, and there was no hope of getting
a fix from the seller/company/whatever, I would try some activated fiberglass resin, applied to the offending coil or transformer with an eyedropper. I would open up the monitor and run it
without the case - and look for the source of the whine with a hose in my ear. Also, I would try pressing on likely parts until I found one that made the sound go away.

Fiberglass resin is more liquid than epoxies, and should soak into the windings, and then set as hard as a rock. Before doing it, I'd warm the offending part with a hair dryer to help the
capillary action.

Hardworking semiconductors can also give off a whine, in which case you're pretty much screwed. But this is less common.

Thanks for the advice! I'm working with the seller first before attempting anything.

I've had problems with OSX incorrectly reading EDID data from another monitor, as well as my TV. It seems OS X is far more finicky than Windows.

Mabye you can try forcing a custom screen resolution using various guides on YouTube. Here is one:
