CrossOver 27Q LED/LED-P, 27M LED, & 2720MDP GOLD LED Monitor Club - Page 566

post #5651 of 6483
Well after almost a year I'm pretty sure that the back light just said goodbye on my led-p.

When I put a flashlight to the monitor I can see the picture so it looks like it's dead to me.

With all the problems people are reporting about the CrossOver, is this still a good option or is one of the other Korean brands better?

I understand that AW is the go to guy here for crossover but how is he able to get the A+ panels when the other re sellers don't? You would think this would be stated on the box. AW is selling the 27Q stating that it is a "This is By-Pass Model and doesn't have AD Board" what is the difference?

If there are any other Canadians out there who have bought one, what re seller did you use and how much was the duty and taxes? I read early on in this post that red-cap put on the slip $70 and under gift, is that something that is still done?

Thanks for the help smile.gif

This is pretty scary. I've had mine for about a month or so and it's been fantastic...but I was definitely hoping it would last a lot longer than a year. It makes me want to wait on buying a second one...

Don't go red-cap.

That being said, there is no customs or duty on these monitors. They are subject to GST/HST/PST, depending on your province. Items under $20 value, or gifts under $60 value are exempt from taxes. Needless to say, having your monitor declared as a gift of a $60 value is illegal.

Oddly enough, the very first Catleap I bought from green-sum was declared as a $100 gift without my requesting it; and I was not charged anything on it, not even taxes. Things are not likely to go that way anymore; you are almost guaranteed to be hit with the sales taxes.

Email your vendor. My 2720MDP that I bought last June died on me last month. The vendor (BigClothCraft) came thru and got me a replacement board (no cost and postage paid by them) and got me back up and running. Read my experience here:

This is only my experience so YMMV. The replacement Backlight board that I just got is different than the one in the unit that died. it looks like one component was overheating and eventually died on the old board. The new board is of a different design so it looks like they have corrected the problem. It seems that the manufacturers have been upgrading internal components even for some of the models that's been around for a while. I have no problem picking up another Crossover as the build quality is pretty good. I'm actually eyeing some of the newer panel with 102% color gamut now.

I have had mine for 2 weeks now and my Cross Over Blade is fabulous finally found how to make the stand more sturdy when mounting the monitor down in it, no dead pixels, very very light bleed on top in dark areas, not hardly even enough to notice. Cross Over wins in my book!

Have you had any experience with dream-seller? His pricing is far better than AW.

I'm still trying to find out what "This is By-Pass Model and doesn't have AD Board" what is the difference?

Thanks again

I'll make sure to contact him since I bought it from BigClothCraft too and got it last summer.

I've been staring at my led-p for the past couple of months and the brightness is starting to take a toll on my eyes.

Even set at the lowest level, I feel like the appropriate viewing distance with regard to brightness is ~6ft, but obviously 27" is too small.

Can someone recommend software for dimming?
