catleap 2703 or crossover 27q?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I'm having trouble deciding between these two monitors. It's a hundred dollar difference (roughly) and I can't really see any specs that are different about it.

I see the shell is a bit different between the two, and they're both the tempered glass version. So why is there a 100 dollar difference (299 vs 399). It's quite a discrepancy. If someone would be so kind as to shed some light on that, I would appreciate it.

Looking to buy one or the other today, so hopefully someone has an answer for me.

Searching google didn't really bring up any answers, and neither searching OCN.

Crossover has a metal back and stand
If you believe that is worth $ 100.oo, Then spend your money

I do not spend my time looking at the stand and I can not see the back of my Catleap 2703

so you like spending money for a new stand then or enjoying seeing your monitor wobble wobble due to catleap's wobblness. and crossover's aren't $100 more.

crossover 27q is not tempered glass by default unless it is said tempered glass.

Your statement is invalid, everyone don't spend time looking at stand that doesn't mean Crossover one serves nothing. Crossover is metal framed which is why it costs more. It is more sturdy than those plastic one. Crossover LED-P version allows you to tilt 90' degree. Catleap stand is fine but if you want to use VESA, you have to open the monitor, on Crossover you don't need to.

Neither of my 2703's wobble !
The 2703's have a different stand than the Q270

Maybe you should exchange that walmart students desk for something abit more sturdy
