Read on the second link.This vertical lines - not a problem of your graphic card or cable. It's really problem of this panel type. All monitors with this panel has simalar issues... Including BenQ BL3201

Most of the the other Korean monitors can only do pbp in 16:9 aspect ratio and leave half the screen blank.

It actually does do side by side 1920 x2160. but it's not quite working right. I am wondering if that is bc I have both the DP and HDMI connected to the same video card. I am going to try something else more..

How did you know that crossover also have this panel? what other 32 in 4k has this panel? is it like right now pretty much all 32in 3K IPS monitors all using the same panel? This sucks ;(. I don't remember ever seeing it on my Samsung Ju6500..

Btw, I switched over to HDMI 2.0 and I just noticed now while playing starcraft I got a flashing line on my screen so I am pretty sure that it happened again ;(

I know that bl3201 and 324k used AHVA IPS panels. Only one who manufacture AHVA in 32 inch - AUO - model M320QAN01

Thanks. So pretty right now that means there's no true good 32 in 4K monitor out there? ;(... this sucks!

Thanks. I'm holding out for a monitor of this size that can that reliably. I have imaging work that would be benefit from a true split screen. If you test it further with two seperate sources, Id like to know how that goes.

Got it working properly here. The trick is that I had to use output from two different video cards. I used a gtx960 and nvs510 on the same pc with hdmi 2.0 from gtx960 and dp 1.2 from nvs510. When I tried using the dp and hdmi output both from gtx it doesn't seem to work correctly (probably NVidia fault)

I have one of these and an Achieva Shimian 1440p (newer 2700 model not 270) side by side and here's what I notice:
(Shimian as a reference point, not as a direct comparison since 1440p =/= 4k)

Pixel functionality: 1 stuck on the crossover, left middle, green color. 2 small clusters on the shimian. Crossover wins.

Color accuracy: side by side, the Shimian is noticeably better even after an hour of tweaking (by eye). Shimian wins.

Viewing angle: Shimian wins, slight green color shift for the Crossover. Not serious though.

Brightness: Shimian wins, 50% is brighter than 100% on the Crossover.

Build Quality: Tie. Crossover has a nicer stand but Shimian has vesa screws pre installed (which was very convenient for me)

Response time: I'm fairly sure the Crossover is actually faster with PQ set to bypass and source manually set to DP 1.2. No empirical evidence, just some half baked tests with half a window on the Crossover and half on the Shimian. But at least I can say it's not a problem for me even while playing CSGO. Crossover wins.

OSD: Crossover wins, remote is useful for menu navigation, updateable firmware, more features.

Connectivity: Crossover wins, more ports and HDMI 2.0. (I didn't test to see if HDMI 2.0 actually works though.)

Bezel: Crossover wins, slightly more than 1cm bezel vs ~1in for the Shimian

Price: Crossover was twice as expensive.

Notes: I get motion sickness with the XOver with certain games...probably caused by larger panel + lower framerate due to 4k. Text is pretty much the same size as it would be on a 15.6" 1080P laptop screen (it would be equivalent to a 31.2" 4k if you do the math).

Overall I'd rather have 2 Shimians than 1 Crossover if I was going to spend $440 on monitors. But that's just me and I also don't regret buying the Crossover. If you don't have room for multi-monitors, then go with 1 Crossover.

Nice comparison. Is the Simian that bad with input lag? I mean crossover input lag is around 40+ms, fairly bad for a dedicated monitor. I can't imagine the simian being worse....
post #70 of 449
played some more games and I can't notice the difference in input lag.

definitely a VA panel though, viewing angle color shift starting to bother me if I don't sit directly in front of the monitor (kinda OCD on my part, its not that bad), but still better than tn obviously
