Who did you buy from?

Just an FYI most of them are not around on the weekends.

That's what I cant tell from the pictures and what you've stated. However if you want to make your life easier I just suggest just using a standard US power kettle lead, I did for two of my Crossovers and there wasn't a problem, link below. If your using the transformer in addition to a standard US power cable you don't need to.

Power Cable
Here's the power brick I have, which was not the one that came with the monitor, the one that came with it had the wrong specs, yes this uses a US power cable, not a korean.

And here's the output side of the transformer:

I know it's not necessarily needed, BUT I'm doing this because a few months ago I had flickering issues and while they have mostly gone away, when I am taxing the grid on my house (space heater, blow drier, heating pad, etc) sometimes the problem starts back up again. I have an older house and I did this to help curb any future issues and regulate the flow to the monitor. Does that make sense? Am I on the right track here?

Can we enable DDC/CI of crossover? I am thinking about using ScreenBright to lower the backlight of crossover.
I found the information here

http://superuser.com/questions/187302/tool-to-adjust-monitors-backlight-brightness-in-windows

I find the screen is too bright with the lowest setting.
I want to turn down the backlight, so I won't use the graphic driver to change the brightness.

It seems that the gamma, red blue and yellow of this screen can not be changed, the only thing can be changed a little is the backlight, which is done through that two buttons.

Anyone know whether the .ICM file changes the monitor configuration?
is it possible to change the monitor configuration by some software?

So are you saying the cable/brick that comes with the monitor is not entirely reliable? If it's not, I must look to changing it myself. I'm in the UK though. My monitor should arrive today, so I'd like to know this before I plug it in xD

Hard to say for people buying right now, I was a very early adopter and got my 27Q LED-P back in 03/2012. People buying then were frequently getting a brick that shouldn't be used on a US power grid without some sort of voltage regulator.

Hmm, okay. My problem is that I don't know much about those things. If I recall correctly, my G27 came with a power brick as well, so I'll compare the values on the sticker and see if they match. Last thing I want to do after shelling out some cash is break my newest toy xD

And it's arrived already, can't wait to get home. Got dispatched on Wednesday, got it today. I think if I had ordered just slightly earlier and it got sent out on Tuesday I'd have gotten it last Friday. Still not as fast as all of you in the US, but can't say it's a bad service at all, quite the opposite. I just hope when I get home and try it out, that it's all working properly!

I do wonder if I'll notice much of a change, since I'm already coming from a 26'' 1200p screen (kinda wish I had a crappy screen so I could notice the difference even more xP). Though as far as I can see, the colors on the Crossover will be vastly superior. My current monitor (a Samsung T260) really pisses me off with the viewing angle. From the way I sit and the place where the monitor stays, I always lose some color either on the top or the bottom. Since I always prefer eye candy to fps, that always annoys me! Might get another 7970 soon so that I can take full advantage of the new resolution! smile.gif

Also, I don't know for sure, but since my mother already accepted and signed for the package back home, I don't believe that I have to pay any customs, so yay for that! smile.gif


Also, if I may just ask, any 100x100 vesa mount will do just fine for the monitor? I've yet to try it, but if it is too close to me, I think I will put it on the wall behind my desk. But I do imagine that it will be, as sometimes my current screen already seems to be too close. I was looking at a mount such as this (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Auna-LCD-503A-Mount-Inculdes-Cable/dp/B007PBNDDI/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2OSW0H0976NEX&coliid=IZ5KMF05RESAC) because it's not that expensive and seems sturdy. I just need to check if I can turn it around to make the monitor Portrait.

I want to go home! ^^

Just got mine from AW, pixel perfect it seems. Installed color profile for it and seems good. Need to find some good media to test with it to make sure

Just bought a 27QD-P perfect pixel from AW. I will post again when I receive it.

Why is the 27Q more than the 27QD? I really don't want speakers in mine but I shouldn't have to pay more to not have them... lol
