CrossOver 27Q LED/LED-P, 27M LED, & 2720MDP GOLD LED Monitor Club - Page 567

post #5661 of 6483
Anyone have both the QNIX Samsung PLS monitors or this monitor?

Which one is the better buy?

If you want to overclock, you're probably going to want to go with the Qnix. If you're more into the build quality (and can pay the higher price) go with the Crossover 27Q.

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.

Oh right, this is the PCB issue I was reading about before I bought mine. I'm less worried since I have the newer one (and accesorieswhole is a fantastic seller thus far, so I have no doubt they will come through if something goes wrong). I just don't want it to be so far away from when I bought it that they decide they'll no longer provide support.

Thanks again
Dream-seller seems to have pretty okay reviews for the most part, but the more recommended sellers in this thread are always going to be AW and bigclothcraft (mostly just AW).

I had the same dilemma a few weeks ago, but I just sucked it up and paid extra for AW. The service they provide is top notch, they'll overnight parts or replace things for you immediately if something goes wrong (which it sometimes does).

I'm not saying dream-seller won't do this (since I don't know for sure), and most who have bought from them have been happy. I just figured, if I'm spending this much anyways, a better guarantee of quality (better dead pixel policy) and support was probably worth the little extra. I had a very good experience communicating with AW as well, so I have no regrets at all with spending the extra money.

They actually just mailed me a new PCB for my monitor.

I just have to figure out how to take apart my 27QD?

Anyone have a link to a site, thread or anything with pictures on how to take it apart?

Can someone recommend software for dimming?

Give F.lux a try. I've used it before but haven't tried it yet with my Crossover for some unknown reason. I'm having issues with the brightness as well.

Ive used flux as well but I found it more useful for only office work where its text on a majority of white since it only changes color temperature to something less harsh.

If your not picky over color accuracy you can use nvidia's or AMD's built in color settings for the monitor. Turn down brightness to 0, turn down contrast to 0, and then boost gamma to maybe 1.50 or whatever looks best to you (using an Apple here so I have full control on back light but its calibrated same as my Crossovers were) and that should give you overall darker picture with inky blacks and of course a sacrificed peak white appearance. Try playing with them a bit to suit your needs.

Yeah, I was aware of that. The thing is, most of my trouble with the brightness has come with mostly text on a lot of white (especially at night, it's harsh on the eyes). That's why I suggested it. I'm going to go ahead and try your other option with my AMD settings to see if it works any better. Thanks.

Aye understandable of course, I'd say my method takes it down 30-40% and temperatures and contrast aren't overly degraded for what it is, let me know how it works for you.

When you say take brightness and contrast down to 0, do you mean their minimum? In AMD Catalyst, it seems as if "0" is the default, but it's like the midway point.
