Any monitor recommendations? -- also need info on Crossover 27QW

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
[edited]

To be more concise,

I need a new monitor, the features required are:

very low minimum brightness
no PWM backlight regulation, or very high frequency PWM
in general suitable for use in a very dark environment (I don't know how bad ips glow is for this)
VESA mount capable
absolutely no more than $400
not more than 13.5 pounds with stand removed

Features preferred:

1440p would be awesome, but at least 1200p
good colour
not terrible response time
ideally not more than $350


The monitor I am closest to picking is the Crossover 2735amg, but would prefer the Crossover 27QW if it has low minimum brightness and doesn't use PWM. I couldn't find that information anywhere so I was wondering if someone here knew.

Otherwise any recommendations fitting the above requirements are welcome. Thanks!

If anyone could comment on this it would be a big help. I'm hoping to get a new monitor over this weekend while the sales are up for the new build I'm putting together.

Also I wasn't sure on the rules and/or etiquette of bumping my own thread on this forum. I saw it on a number of other threads and could not find any rules on it one way or another despite searching, but if it's considered bad form please let me know.

I own the CrossOver 27Q and it's perfect for use in dark conditions. I observe no IPS glow and the color reproduction is one of the best on the market (only the QNIX QX2710 beats it in terms of out-of-factory color presets).

In terms of low minimum brightness, the CrossOver 27Q can get to very low brightness settings (another big plus for dark environments).

Also the build quality on the CrossOver monitors can not be matched by other Korean monitors. The metallic construction makes it look premium and well built.

Basically think of it as an Apple Cinema Display (it's virtually the same panel) in a different build. Both source their panels from LG. And plus you don't have to spend $700+ on it.

To get a demonstration on how the CrossOver 27QW looks:

Where did you get your crossover 27 q from? Thanks
