I bought from greensum and asked them to put a lower price on my package. They shipped it with a $72 price on it. Had to pay €25 of custom fees. I am in Europe.

Of course you can, I have my Benq clocked to 87Hz via HDMI and I had also another Dell clocked via DisplayPort - not a problem. But of course it depends on a monitor. Standard brands are usually locked so you can go max. 75Hz.

Did you pay 25 euros fees for 72$ monitor? It's a bit much, isn't it ? Are you sure they didn't take a real price and ignored what seller said ?? We have 20% VAT here, but don't know if any import fees. I think there is none for this kind of electronics so I should pay 301$ + 20% at most...

In any case, how good is the monitor ? Are you satisfied with him ? Any dead pixel or uniformity problems ? I mean one part of the screen yellowish or so ? It was like that on AUO panels. Do you have any extensive backlight bleed or orange IPS glow ? thx.

I've noticed some games, mostly console ports are frame-capped at 60fps. It's the games limitations, not the monitors, windows, or gpu fault. Some games have work arounds in the config files to uncap the limiter, some do not. This is actually a newish trend that will hopefully die out quickly with the popularity of higher refresh rate monitors becoming popular.

Strange that it takes a decade of screen-tearing, stuttering, display port 1.2a, a $200 gsync module, just to get us back to the basic quality of a CRT display, haha.


Also, Single-input versions of every Korean panel I know of are the only ones capable of overclocking without frame skipping. The only reason they do overclock so well is they do not have an internal scaler or add-in board required for multiple inputs. Scaling and signal goes directly from the gpu to the actual panel itself. This is standard information found in any of the Qnix, Crossover, X-star threads.

I am only talking about the korean IPS monitors. Maybe someone else can clear this up.

Also 20% VAT here. The "problem" is not the VAT, but the toll fee you additionally have to pay. With $300 the fees would have been something around €100.

I'd ask the seller to use a lower price on the package. In the worst case you have to provide the custom office the invoice with the real amount, I think.

No dead pixels. I had one when it arrived but some knocking on the panel got rid of it.

No extensive backlight bleed or orange/yellow glow either.

I am still very happy with the purchase.

Bump to that. I'm wondering the same thing. I won't spend a penny more than $550 on a monitor, let alone $ 799 for a PG279Q which doesn't even have 10+ bit LUT and may have QC issues... It would be much more appealing if it were to do backlight strobing at 144/72Hz instead of 120/60Hz and OC to 168Hz instead of 165Hz for movies/tv.

Since that's not an option/doesn't exist and 4k doesn't seem to be getting close to 120Hz any time soon, I'm alos looking for a new Korean panel to upgrade from my QNIX 2710. Except mine has no PWM dimming, so the choice is even harder!

What is the difference between the Crossover 27QW Sakwa & Crossover 2795QHD

Hey guys,

I just wanna check with you guys. I have colormunki display and I was doing a new caliration with displaycal instead of the one that comes with it. This is on windows 10 if that helps. Tried doing it in linux is even more difficult. hahaha.

In the first stage of calibration where you can try to adjust the green, red and blue and brightness, since there is no OSD to adjust the RGB and only brightness.

How do you guys do it? Is there a way for me to do it via software? Or do I stuck on whatever the RGB values are?

Many thanks!

Thx for info. You were right, import tax for these monitors is 14%. I have hoped for 0% as other electronics such mobile devices. So total fees are around 34% in Slovakia. We have 20% VAT. So it would cost me around 400$. Just don't know if it's not a big risk. The truth is that LG panels are far better than AUO. AUO are awful. Very bed uniformity, orange glow in corners, dust under the screen, backlight bleeding and dead pixel. This is just too much for 800 euro monitor. On the other hand they have very good response time.

What is response time on this ? I mean highest one ? Also can please you tell me if there is an option is OSD to set vibrance and does it have 6 channel color settings ? What options are there? And how well yours is overclockable ? I would like to have at least 100Hz if possible.

Good to hear you are satisfied with your purchase. I'm a bit afraid because I'm too picky especially with uniformity and BLB. But maybe it would be worth a risk because actually there is no good universal gaming/work monitor on the market. XB271HU is close to that but they have uniformity and BLB issues.

There isn't really a setting to adjust RGB channels ? That's pretty bad. Can anyone of you guys take a screens of ODS menu? I would like to see that. Thx.

Yeah there is simply no OSD for this screen. You only have the brightness button and power button. Everything else is through software.

Don't get me wrong, the colors are great out of the box and from my colormunki its close just not the most perfect if thats what you are after.

Thus i'm asking people over here on how they do it or is it stuck as is for the RGB setting.

That's bad, this really feels cheap. I saw somewhere that this monitor has half of the buttons disconnected.

You could try this software - softMCCS.

With a bit of luck it will allow you to change lot of parameters but monitor must support DDC/CI. I have no idea if it does. I was able to manage 6 axis color settings on PG279Q with this software because OSD does not support it. Unfortunately, these changes were not persistent and reverted back to default values once monitor was turned off.

It's a shame because I believe these LG panels are great and much better than AUO and being overclockable to 120Hz would blow another 60Hz 1440p screen out of the water but seems Koreans don't pay much attention to build quality and overal OSD functionality and calibration settings.

Do you think you could take couple of OSD screenshots for me ? Would really appreciate that.

Seems my only way is to get a decent XB271HU but they are far to expensive frown.gif

Well there is simply no OSD menu at all, so really can't give you any screenshot or whatsoever. It does seems cheap but its a beautiful monitor. If you jump to xb271hu thread, you can see there are tons of complain over there too.

Build quality i honestly think it is fine, it is not as bad as you make it out to be, unless you have exceptionally high standard.

It really comes down to price ratio. Like where I am, a XB271HU is almost AUD1100 and this monitor is around AUD430. The difference is just too massive for what I need it to be considering i can get a pretty damn good monitor for 1/3 of the price.

And don't push for 120Hz, just believe it can do 96Hz and above that is a bonus.

Thanks for info, then it is really not a way to go for me. I can't imagine I have no display calibration options in OSD menu.

Yes, I know about XB271HU. I had one and also XB270HU and two PG279Q. All of them sucked in some way. Either BLB, dead/stuck pixels, orange IPS glow or uniformity issues. So tell me about that quality biggrin.gif But XB271HU was almost acceptable for me but one extensive BLB spot ruined it all. They are pricey and currently out of stock here so I was looking for alternative but if there is no OSD then... frown.gif

I could accept build quality imperfection but, missing calibration capabilities and risk of blb, bad pixels and no warranty is too much for me. I believe it can be a great monitor but it's just to risky.
