The Overlords lack a 3 year warranty (don't know if Viewsonic's customer service is good) and the 120hz models do not have menu's so you will not be able to change the colors. Their newer model has a nicer bezel than the old one, but won't be available until may.
Back-light pictures, both monitors are calibrated and set to 140cd/m2 brightness. Yes, there is a pink IKEA lamp behind the CrossOver.
So no one else has the vertical screen tearing issue? I'm going to make a video to demonstrate, and yes Aero is enabled and I force Tripple Buffered Vsync in the Nvidia Control Panel in all games. Depending on the colors the tearing is really obvious (obvious with light ones, not with dark) and I hate screen tearing. Tried both dl-dvi & DP with 2 sets of cables as well as 2x gpu's and different custom res timings.
I just found out today from Samsung that I have to wait 2 more weeks for them to replace my frame dropping S27A850D even though their rep originally told me 2 and I have to return the Viewsonic to Amazon by the 20th.
It is kind of sad that the CrossOver 2720MDP (500$ from ebay) is one of the ONLY 2560x1440 models with proper 3:2 pull down and 1080p@24hz blu-ray play back support over HDMI on my PS3.
