Wecube ST2770W 27" LED IPS Review

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

Long time lurker, first time poster. I recently purchased a Wecube ST2770W from green-sum on Ebay. I received the monitor 3 business days from DHL double wrapped in bubble wrap. I was pleased with the packaging and the box had a few small creases but was in overall good shape. The stand was easy to attach and looks great in my opinion. There is some wobble to the stand, but under normal use it is not an issue. I have the monitor hooked up to a HD cable box, Xbox 360, and a 6870 graphics card.

Pictures:

























Pros:

Resolution and IPS
Looks clean and sleek
Inputs-HDMI, DVI-D, RGB, Component
Haven't found any dead or stuck pixels
Cheap-$360 USD shipped


Cons:
Speakers are horrible, almost unusable
2-3 second delay when switching resolutions (slightly longer than my previous monitor and only happens while watching HD TV as some local commercials are not HD)
Have to manually select inputs (source>arrows>select)
Moderate blacklight bleed (Hard to capture on camera)

I may attempt to adjust the bezel to see if I can reduce the blacklight bleed.

Please let me know if you would like any more information or pictures.

Thank you for being such a great resource for information.

How is the input lag at 1080p or on the Xbox 360? That's the only factor that might keep me from getting this.

I haven't noticed any noticeable lag while gaming at 1080p, but the only games I have played recently are Starcraft 2 and League of Legends. I have spent some time playing Halo 4 and haven't noticed any reduction in my performance after switching monitors. The two biggest complaints I have are the blacklight bleed and the speakers basically being unusable.

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Thanks for the response. Would you be able to test it with an FPS game on PC at 1080p for me and let me know if there's noticeable lag? I'd greatly appreciate it.

Also, welcome to OCN! smile.gif

EDIT: Couldn't wait, ordered mine. Can't wait to get it! biggrin.gif

Hey and Welcome smile.gif

Let me know how it goes with the monitors guys, still happy with them, any complaints, issues?

Btw, how's the Audio in/out, quality OK?
Not referring to the speaker quality, but the quality when passing the audio through the monitor (say from Xbox-->Monitor-->Speakers).


Cheers

I'm loving my monitor! The colors are amazing and look very accurate. I don't have any way to calibrate it but it looks perfect to me. The resolution is crisp, I can game without AA from a 3-4 foot distance and not notice any serious aliasing unless I look up close. I can handle most games at full-res with AA so games look truly flawless! Colors are vibrant, and darks are very dark. However, there is a moderate back light bleed at the very top-center for me. Honestly I'm not bothered by it though, my previous monitor had extreme bleed so this is nothing. One thing, when I play first person shooters at 1080p I can notice a considerable amount of input lag. Thankfully I can play pretty much every single game I own fine at 1440p even if I have to turn some graphics settings down on Crysis 3 and BF3. There is a slight bit of ghosting when I stare closely while moving fast on some shooters. Doesn't bother me really, I have only noticed it a couple times. Xbox 360 plays nicely as well, I mostly play racing games on Xbox with the standard controller so it's much harder to notice any input lag. I run my audio from my 360 straight to my studio speakers' aux port so I can't comment on the audio in/out. This monitor also scales aspect ratios perfectly so I can play some of my older games that don't support widescreen without them stretching and looking terrible. tongue.gif

I didn't expect I would write that much... But anyway there's my thoughts on it.

Thanks for the detailed reply, ChicknWafflZ. smile.gif


I've heard that these can suffer from a little back-light bleed, not enough to stop a purchase though, especially at the price they're going for. The input lag is a little concerning, I think it must be down to the resolution scaling required for the HDMI port, (as opposed to the Catleap Q270 SE for instance - DVI only). Otherwise, it sounds great, pretty much what I was hoping for!

As for the calibration, there's a colour profile that many people use for the Yamakasi Catleap Q270 that's supposed to be pretty good. The panel in the Wecube and Catleap should be the same, so would maybe give that a try. Its supposed to reduce the blue tint that comes with it. http://www.overclock.net/t/1225919/yamakasi-catleap-monitor-club

I'll check that out and see how it looks. I'm pretty happy with how it looks right now but maybe it can get even better! Thanks.

Sorry for the bump but how is the overclocking on this monitor?
