CrossOver 27Q LED/LED-P, 27M LED, & 2720MDP GOLD LED Monitor Club - Page 79

post #781 of 6398
Hey guys. Are there any options to get a pixel perfect model from ebay? I really really want a crossover but i'm nervous about some of the unlucky experiences some people had already. I want to do my best to ensure I get one with no dead pixels and minimum backlight bleed and such.

Even people that paid for "perfect pixel" still get imperfect monitors.

Why? Because these panels are A-.

If you want a perfect panel, dish out the cash for a more expensive one from a company that will take it back if it is imperfect. (27" 2560 x 1440 from Samsung. Fairly cheap, I believe $800. HP has one also, but it's got some high input lag and is around $700)

Most people get monitors that have no stuck pixels and no dead pixels.

Even if you do have a dead pixel, you'll only notice it on white backgrounds and searching hard for it at this resolution.

I'm not entirely sure if I want to buy one yet. I'm waiting to see if companies are going to follow through with Intel's push for very high-density PPI monitors. (Intel is trying to make 2560 x 1440 the standard for 13" screens)

That seems a little crazy, as the text on my 13.3 is small as it is, which displays 1600 x 900. And if they do that, VGA card makers are going to have to really push their cards and make them cheaper or they'll lose profits.

But we'll see what the release of Ivy brings, and whether I buy one or not.

I'm ready to push that buy button. The only thing, other than previously mentioned, that is stopping me is that I have a 6950 and they seem to have some trouble with the monitor.

I know it's possible without a problem to display 1920 x 1080 using VGA, technically "WUXGA" I believe. But if you're doing 2560 x 1440, go with DVI-D, or DisplayPort.
Maybe the smaller Crossover's (24" or less) have standard D-Sub connectors.

I'm not going to be driving the monitor over VGA (primarily anyway), it is just so I can hook up an Xbox 360 without having to pay out the ass for the HDMI model.

The low end models only have dual-link DVI.

You can use an hdmi-dvi adapter with consoles but first you have to set the consoles to 720p other wise it will not display an image.

I don't think you'll find any good gender changers for DVI to HDMI.

Why don't you just find a 1920 x 1080p monitor that takes HDMI?

Also:
1.) Monitor has no speakers.
2.) 360 through HDMI has no audio separation.
3.) Meaning you'd lose sound.

That's why I use the 360 VGA cables. It has RCA analog on the cable with the VGA connector.
