CrossOver 27Q LED/LED-P, 27M LED, & 2720MDP GOLD LED Monitor Club - Page 98

Wow.. that looks VERY good. The biggest reason why I choose the Crossover from the others is because of the stand and the attractive bezel. USPS current has mine. Says that it's current being packaged for the flight over here and that was 2 days ago. Knowing the USPS, they'll update the tracking a day or two after it hits my door step. whistle.gif

Thanks for your help, great thread!

Thank you for your help!

Holy christ, $70 for that cable!!!! I guess it also has a thunderbolt cable as well to make it compatible when I upgrade my laptop, but still...

You can plug your own power cable into the power brick that comes with the monitor. I have a display from Red-cap, and I used one of my own power cables (that I have in abundance) with the cord and power brick that came with the display. Works just fine, as per all reports here.

Just clarifying what I had said about the 5770 and the Crossover...

The Crossover will display the bios boot sequence for a 5770 in case anyone was wondering. I did an unintentional experiment tonight when I was moving my office around and unplugged the other 2 displays and the Crossover showed the whole thing. It seems it only stays dark during the boot sequence if you have other monitors attached, I'm not sure if that's one or two, but I had all 3 connected and it always stayed dark until I got to the OS loading.

Anyway hope that helps someone.

Okay so i was about to buy the catleap when i found the crossover which looks alot better, but apparently they all have at least 1 dead pixel, Cant i buy a pixel perfect one like the catleap?

I've heard that because this monitor does not have OSD you will get wrong/faulty colors in some programs. That the ICC-profile is not active in them.

How does it work in games such as Diablo 3, BF3, MW3 or VLC-mediaplayer? smile.gif

Edit: Does a ICC-profile for the crossover work on a Achieva Shimian?
post #978 of 6483
So I'm on the verge of buying one of these but I was hoping you guys could clear up a few things that I haven't seen answers for elsewhere. If I've missed them, then feel free to tell me to get lost and go look for them.

I understand that these have no inbuilt scaling or anything, so what happens if you hook it up with a lower resolution? Does it not display, or is it simply bordered by black space?

Is there any way to run games, for example, at a lower resolution than native? Is it possible for a graphics card to render at a lower resolution but scale it up to 2560 x 1440?

I have a reasonable system but I don't think it would handle 2560 x 1440 at decent settings. My previous monitor handled fairly nicely when scaling up when I had an older graphics card, and I was wondering if there was any way to achieve something similar on this.


Cheers guys

you could just use PowerStrip to adjust your colors.

As I replied to your copied post in another thread, I have not encountered this issue yet (with my Achieva ShiMian)
