Yep, I went with 3 and don't regret it. I don't really game on all 3 w/ Eyefinity, but having 3 is useful for productivity. Not having to minimize or compromise on space is nice. Turning your head to look at the side screens can get annoying, if they're in portrait I actually have a height issue (it's like sitting in the front row at a movie theater, gotta lean back a bit to see everything). But the main stuff is on the center screen, side monitors are secondary stuff so it's not that bad.

I sold my 3007WFP-HC on craigslist for nearly the cost of 2 x 27Q's ...

Apparently my monitor has arrived today and is waiting at home. but I've been told it had no extra packaging over the standard cardboard box! i sure hope its ok because i bet its been thrown around on the plane and between various courier vans plenty. the seller didn't even put a single layer of bubblewrap around it. i'm pretty pissed off about that now.

UH oh, I would be pissed off myself, hope it's OK for ya.

OK just got home. The box seems to have held up well. It looked a bit damp but I opened the box and the polystyrene stuff has protected the screen.

Unboxed the monitor and everything looked fine until I looked round the back where the connectors are. Its no biggie, but one of the screws from the back panel is missing and the metal is actually bent out of shape. Now this metal is pretty tough stuff so for it to bend out of shape as much as it has is a bit worrying.

Plugged the included DVI-D cable into my 4 year old PC, used my old monitor's kettle power lead into the ac adapter, turned it all on. Hmm, no light coming on the AC adapter. Then suddenely.... the bios screen flashed up, Windows 7 loaded in fine, and the screen is so deliciously immensely gorgeous and so large that I'm still trying to take it in.

The text is so crisp and sharp I feel like there is nothing between myself and actual page I am looking at. Its like looking through a window, rather than a screen. I am so pleased with it I would happily recommend anyone to put their money into one.

Alright got to unbox my monitor today from red-cap. I have good and bad news. So for the bad news first. The monitors stand came shipped broken. It's basically bent so bad it is unusable and the screen falls face forward. The only thing that protected the screen was the foam in the box as the majority of the weight was not being held up by the monitors stand. This made me pretty angry as i was going to use the provided stand. Anyone have any suggested stands for me?

Now for the good news. I removed the stand and set the monitor down on my floor praying the thing would even fire up. I didn't have much hope since the stand showed up like that! Plugged it in and it fired right up with my PC. I ran the normal calibrations looking for dead or stuck pixels and the results came back that I have about as close to a perfect monitor as you can get. I have one stuck blue pixel on black only. The pixel is high at the top center of the monitor not in the middle of the screen. Zero dead pixels. Backlight bleed was at a all time low. I have some at the bottom, but it is so minimal it almost isn't worth mentioning. My monitor also does not display the blue hue some people were getting.

(This pic severely over emphasis's the stuck pixel I couldn't get a more clear picture as it is so small.)

The pixel under normal use is impossible to see and even if I set the screen to all black I'd have to be no more then a foot from the screen before it's noticeable. I have not attempted to massage the pixel but I did run a pixel repair that didn't phase it at all.

All in all a great looking screen I was blown away. As another person has said it's like looking out a window. I launched Trine 2, RAGE, Batman: AC, Diablo 3 and CS:GO all at 2560x1440 on my GTX 580 which ran at least 4xAA without issue or frame hiccups. On a side note it's hard as hell to play counter strike at this resolution tongue.gif

Those are some nice backgrounds... got links?

Also with regards to the stand. You might be able to buy one off someone who doesn't want theirs (I unfortunately like to keep all the accessories with stuff I buy). But I bought this stand for my Catleap before I sold it to a buddy who wall-mounted it. I might sell my Ergotron Neo-flex stand as I don't have much use for it right now.

It supported the Catleap in Portrait just barely (Side of the screen touched the base). But it would work with the Crossover I think. Check the specs for weight (ignore the screen dimensions, it's fine in landscape), Crossover might be heavier but the stand was pretty beefy. This would be like upgrading to the LED-P model. Maybe ask red-cap for a bit of a refund to cover the cost of a new stand? $20-30 is reasonable I think.

I've received my adapter to plug in the third monitor. When I turn the computer on with all 3 plugged in and turned on it works perfectly with no hassles at all.

However when the monitors sleep, or if I turn them off manually, or run a full screen game.. basically anything that drops the connection temporarily the monitor connected via the mini displayport adapter stops receiving a signal.
The light stays red mostly, every few seconds flashes blue, the computer makes a "found new hardware" noise with both other monitors turning off and on as if I'd changed display settings. This repeats until I turn off the 3rd monitor.
So far the only way to get it to receive a signal is to restart with all of them plugged in, turned on and ready.

Has anybody found a solution to this without constant reboots? I also use my desktop for bitcoin mining and would prefer not to turn it off or leave the screens on 24/7 (disabling monitor sleep)

Could someone help me out with getting the settings on my laptop correct? Basically I have an Asus laptop which has an nVidia GT550m 2GB card built in. However most of the time it wants to use the integrated intel chip which is fair enough.

I connected my laptop to the Crossover 27M using the HDMI port on both devices. The picture displays on the screen but it is only at 1920x1080 so looks fuzzy. I tried to up the resolution in Windows 7 but the maximum it will go to is 1920x1080. I tried clicking Advanced Settings and the Intel Integrated Graphics menu is made available where you can create custom resolutions so I tried to create 2560x1440 but I get a warning saying something like "that resolution is beyond the bandwidth of this device".

The thing I don't understand is why doesn't the nVidia control panel come up, even when I ask the computer to use the nVidia chip instead of the Intel one? Any idea how to make this work?
