yes, please! and post some pics too.

It may take a bit to test the monitor... I had my desktop shipped to school, but UPS beat it up so badly that the steel chassis on my Silverstone TJ08-e was deeply bent in several places. Needless to say, the computer doesn't boot, so It may take a while to figure out how on earth I am going to resolve this.

Does anyone know of a video review for the Crossover 30Q5 Pro? I tried finding one on YouTube but kept getting results for the CrossOver 27Q LED.
post #45 of 357
It's been tough for me to find a single review too. So I ordered two from BCC. (Stupid? Maybe.) I'll post back with info when they arrive.

Does anyone have advice on how to measure and calibrate these? I don't have any special equipment, other than a red cellophane rectangle that came with an old Aria DVD.

That's the reason I went 16:10 over the (far far FAR) more popular 27" models. If you're going to be using them mostly for work, it seems a no-brainer (to me). As an idea, every Comp Sci prof here has 30"-ers, none have 27". But, that could be because they all bought them back when Apple was pushing them heavily.

I might buy the CrossOver 30Q5 Pro for work and web browsing. I saw the difference between a 27" monitor and it's huge.

I can see why people prefer 30 inch monitors now.

im really thinking about buying one of the 30Q5s so im really interested to see what alcal has to say when he recieves it

I'm also interested in what others who own this have to say. Has anyone reviewed the other 30" models that are out there?
post #50 of 357
Ok, monitor is in. It is currently set up on my roommates rig so I'm not using it much. Overall it looks pretty beautiful--The construction is very nice and the stand has a nice raise/lower/pivot/swivel mechanic. The AG coating is somewhat aggressive. It appears to be about the same level of AG that my dell UH2312HM has, which is in turn similar to other dell ips panels. The AG may be a turn-off for some but I don't care much.

The one negative is a dead pixel (black at least--not some jarring color) a bit off center, up and right. It won't be an issue when gaming--we'll see if it bugs me when coding with white editors, but overall I'm super happy with it. Playing a game on it is much more immersive/awesome than playing on my roommates 27" crossover 27q so suck it 27" evangelists tongue.gif
