Can anyone with a CrossOver 27Q LED-P tell me the exact lowest heigh (monitor + stand) it has? Pretty please.

I've heard a few people mention that SquaretradeWarranties warranties can be used with these monitor from most EBay sellers,
Does anyone know if this would cover backlight bleeding or dead pixels, stuff that people pay extra anyways for the perfect pixel versions?
Also I was told a while back that if when I pay with my AMEX (and some other credit cards )for eBay items as long as I pay the full amount via the extended warranty coverage on the card
Anyone think that would work?

no it won't. only if the monitor actually breaks. once again doesn't matter if you buy these korean monitors or apple/dell. they can still have dead pixels/backlight bleed.

Thanks! I realise that this is not a mac forum but seems to be a few people posting about getting a CrossOver working with one. As mentioned i have searched the forum and nobody has answered my query about it working at full resolution.

The dp to dual link dvi cable's are $99 not $5 as they need to be 'active'. For this reason i want to save money by getting the Gold version but only if I am sure it works at full resolution!

It makes more sense for mac owners to get the 2720MDP Gold over the regular version because of displayport but only if it works!

Has anyone else sent back their Crossover to Korea from the UK ?
I'm getting quotes at over £100, wondered if anyone has found the best way.
Of course thats just getting it TO Korea, I'll also have to pay for its return (another £60 !) and then HOPE that its fixed and hasnt developed another problem in transit around the world. Of course it could always develop a different problem at a later date, or break after the end of the warranty. I do hope people consider these issues before they buy from Redcap !

no. there is a difference between a cable (there is no dp to DL-dvi active cable) and an adatper. you never said adapter originally. You said cable. that's why I was like what? $99 cable?!

for mac you should get one of the multis

@messyp - I wish I would have gotten the 2720MDP Gold over the 27QD. I've been struggling to get this to work, and still haven't. I've been through 4 different mini displayport to dual link DVI adapters, but none seem to work. The apple one works best, but still not completely. The monitor powers on for a few seconds, then shuts off, then tries again, continuously, but just never stays on. I'm pulling my hair out trying to get this to work. It DOES work via bootcamp, which is really weird, so there is something going on with Mac OS X (drivers?) that isn't allowing me to get this to work.

Anyways, I think you should be fine with the MDP edition. You're going to have to shell out $100 anyway for the adapter, so it's a wash, but you'll probably have better results. I wish I would have done that, or possibly the Auria from MC, or waited for Monoprice to get theirs in stock.

@bleepjay - Thanks for the advice, and sorry to hear about your problems. As you say if you are having issues with the 27QD it makes even more sense for others to go with the 2720MDP. Just hope i don't end up with 1080p or something when i connect it.

Think I will pul the trigger, fingers crossed. Pixel perfect version from AW for UK £370 which seems expensive for these korean monitors, but in comparison Apple Cinema Displays are £900...

don't buy pixel perfect, save money, get same monitor you would probably get if you bought pixel perfect anyways haha thumb.gif
