Just got mine from BigCloth - sold my Apple Cinema Display in favor of completing my 3d-Surround with (3) Planar SA2311W's, then when I got everything in, I missed the mass real estate on one screen, and the fine resolution and vibrant LED backlighting of my Apple Cinema Display. For less than 1/3rd of what I sold my ACD for, I bought the QX2700 (no tempered glass, just the base model with speakers I won't ever use).
I currently have it rotated portrait and sitting on edge until I can get an appropriate stand or arm or mount. I have my (3) 120HZ monitors very low on my desk and may mount the 27" IPS landscape above the center display, or go for another 2 of these in portrait mode and do away with the 2311W's, though I sometimes get the bug to play the occasional game in Stereo 3D.
ORDERING - Got a near immediate e-mail from the seller asking the usual questions including my video card type. (In my case, SLI'd GTX 680 4GB's + 1 GTX 460 -- more on this later).
SHIPMENT - About 4 hours after replying to the email (I am a night person), I had DHL shipping and it had been picked up. (Wed 11/28). Arrived today (11/29) in the midwest United States. AMAZING. Came wrapped with white foam around the box. Seems to have survived the trip well..
UNBOXING - Monitor, stand, dual-link DVI cable, 1/8-1/8 audio cable, A/C adapter*, power cord for A/C adapter (Korean 2 round pins), adapter for 2 round pins to american 2 round pins*, some literature in Korean (a CD-liner sized pamphlet, nothing useful). The box was re-taped, so the seller did take the time to look the panel over. I am immediately going to order a 110V AC adapter from ebay, since I got the "230 V" input-rated adapter, with a sticker saying "110V also acceptable" - They are on the 'bay for $25 delivered, which is fine, but the seller's subtitle said "110 ~ 230V adapter included!". That would be my only gripe. I suppose I could feed it 2 phase but that's a little bit of overkill for avoiding a $25 purchase.
QUALITY - stand is basic, doesn't allow much tilting back, but I expected that and bought this model because the VESA mounts are removable without tearing apart the display. Main unit is solid enough, I am going to cover up the awkward "QX2700LED" in the upper left with some electrical tape, or see if someone has a trick for removing that. The panel - PERFECT - black screen showed very little bleed, which when shifting views went away, so I am thinking this may be IPS glow, as I had as much if not more of this from my Apple Cinema Display (!). Pixels? Not one dead one I have been able to find yet, using the Red, Green, Blue, Black, White test patterns, and also the checkerboard patterns that are made to highlight for example specific color pixel problems. Where I thought I had one was dust (most likely from here, it's dusty in this old house) - color uniformity is superb - calibration is not too far off of my calibrated 2311's, even the whites. I have heard these panels come showing too much blue, I didn't notice that here.
I rotated it 90 degrees and ran it in portrait and pulled up and worked on a word document all afternoon - white is white from the top of the display all the way to the bottom and from left to right. No yellow issues, no dead pixels, no excessive backlight bleed - and this was NOT a "Pixel Perfect" display.
NOTES - I am going to order the adapter off the bay for 110 V - call me paranoid. I was able to drive this off of both my GTX680 4GB SLI setup (any of the DVI ports) without issue - and I also tried the GTX-460 768MB (normally dedicated to physx and accessory display since my 3D setup and SLI combine to not have the ports I need - the drivers insist that the "accessory" display outside of the surround group be connected to either HDMI or DisplayPort on the card that has the "most" displays connected to it - meaning both DL-DVI's are in use. The display drives perfectly from either DVI port of a GTX460. I will try gaming with the panel later or this weekend.
I am happy with the seller, and may purchase another of these. They make my 120hz units look sad in color saturation and brightness/vividness - though to be fair, these are matte panels in the 120hz units, and are pretty high end Planar units though CCFL backlit. Pitty Planar exited the 120hz Nvidia 3D market without putting out an LED backlit model - I think the CCFL backlighting doesn't do these 120hz Planar panels justice.
I may give up on 3D surround, keep one of the 2311 120HZ displays for 3D stuff, and go with a 2nd QX2700 to make a pair in portrait sitting on either side of my 120hz - rotating one 90 degrees and the other 270 degrees so the buttons for each of the QX2700's accessible.
Overall, for the ~$300 I paid delivered for this display, there hasn't been a better buy I can remember in recent history. Do you think I can get this lucky twice in a row with my 2nd display order? FLAWLESS image. I dare say less backlight bleed than my ACD.
One thing is the display EDID's itself to the PC as QHD270QHD270QHD270 - so I am guessing they borrowed the driver/interface board from the other brands.
I hope I am not doing any damage to things by running the 230V adapter on 110V until the "correct" unit arrives.
