For my regular usage, I can't say the input lag is really noticeable either. It is there if I put it up against a crt or if I do duplicated monitors showing a clock for measure
post #72 of 464
Ok, guys.
Just try to figure out, maybe "bypass" function works only on single port (DisplayPort)?
Just my thoughts...
post #73 of 464
I did have bypass enabled when measuring . kinda weird that under that picture quality menu when you disable bypass, you see a submenu "response time" with choices low,med, high.. Wonder what that's about. Maybe I ll chk that out more. Doubt it would help though...

It would be so much more useful if XO has a manual completely explaining all the menu? Maybe they do in Korean?

the osd is similar to many other korean 4k monitors...i'm also curious if i could flash firmware of another monitor that has freesync to enable freesync on this...doubtful tho

Crossover 324k Software Engineer / Graphic Designer Review
32" 3840x2160 ARGB8:8:8:8 AHVA (IPS-type) Anti-Glare Monitor
Purchase price: $439.00
Ebay seller: Dream-Seller
Delivery time: Fedex in 3 business days. Ordered on Sunday, arrived on Thursday


Hardware Setup:
  • 2013 Macbook pro - Intel Iris Pro 1536MB integrated
  • OS/X 10.11.3 El Capitan
  • Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)
  • Connection Type: Crossover DisplayPort cable -> DisplayPort to Min-DisplayPort Adapter

Usage Workflow:
  • OS/X & iOS Enterprise Software Development - Xcode / Objective C & HTML/CSS
  • Content pipeline design,implementation, production& management
  • Technical research, Word processing, Spreadsheets, Presentations, Marketing layouts & graphic production, video editing, etc,

Arrival and Setup:
  • The 324k arrived in a non-descript cardboard box without damage or issue.
  • Opening the first box, revealed a retail-stye printed box adorned with the Crossover 324K UHD HDMI 2.0 logo.
  • The display, power supply and base was easily removed from high-density foam packaging for assembly and setup.
  • Securing the base of the monitor to the display was easily accomplished with the enclosed screwdriver and 3 1" screws. The task was easily accomplished by:
    • Placing the 324K panel face down a table, with the hinge/mount hanging over the edge.
    • Sitting in a chair facing the panel, with my legs supporting the base
    • Align the first screw to the hinge mount and loosely screw it in and repeat.
    • Finish screwing and snugly tighten each screw.
  • Once assembled, the design of the 324K base and it's integrated tilting mechanism work well provide comfortable viewing angles on the desktop. Placement of the 100mm x 100mm mount on the back of the 324K is ideal and should allow it to work seamlessly with most mounting solutions.

Power-on to Desktop:
  • Powering on the 324K, it defaulted to the DisplayPort 1.2 connection @3840x216 with 32-bit color.
  • After switching the UI to english and venturing through the menu's, I was surprised to find the display had been setup for optimal performance.
  • I haven't found any stuck/dead pixels yet.
  • Out of the box, OS/X provides multiple HiDPI "retina quality" resolutions. Selecting Scaled resolutions in Display System Preferences enables access to 5 HiDPI resolutions.
  • To enable additional HiDPI resolutions for selection in third party apps like DisplayMenu use the following terminal command:
    • sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist DisplayResolutionEnabled -bool true

First Impressions:
  • The 324k is "easy on the eyes" and very comfortable to work with for long periods of time. While I start out on a resolution of 3008x1692, after a short period of time, I can can drop the resolution to 3200x1800 and 3840x2160 without eyestrain.
  • The AHVA (IPS-type) screen renders a crystal clear edge-to-edge image compared to my existing Seiki 39yu04's 4:2:2 SMVA screen, suffering from left and right edge view angle issues when use in a up-close a high-resolution Software Engineering / Graphic design Environment.
  • Displaying a completely black screen, there are minimal edge light consistency issues.
  • Using the 324K in an environment with varying and uncontrollable lighting conditions, the Anti-Glare 3H screen is a blessing. Glossy screen coatings, while providing deep blacks, are better suited to playing games VS making them.
  • Stepping down in size from a 39" SMVA Seiki to the 32" AHVA (IPS-type) Crossover, the 324K's ARGB8:8:8:8 panel more than makes up for any loss in size with a Quality image.
  • I have to note how CLEAR text is rendered on this panel in OS/X. I've been comfortably using the 324k without my prescribed stigmatism correcting programming glasses without eye strain.
  • I have not seen ANY issues with: image corruption, flashing static screens, display timeouts, etc.
  • The 324k wakes / returns to sleep without issue.

UPDATE
  • 2-8-2106 Power Supply Cord The thickness of the power cord is a testament to how little power this display uses. That said, considering the quality of the power cable's plastic coating, in packaging, Crossover is winding the cable too tight, leaving kinks that haven't gone away in 4 days. IMO... An extra .25 in the Power Supply's BOM, Bill of Materials, would go a long way in the perceived quality of the product. In other words.... The power supply comes across as having a cheap cable that easily kinks. Improving the packaging process would improve the perception of the display.




Bottom Line:
  • $439!!! It's a killer IPS Adobe RGB 32-Bit 8:8:8 4K display for the price.
  • Crossover apparently uses the same panels as those found in monitors 2x-3x the price.
  • Worth every penny and a definite recommended buy.
  • My first Korean monitor and not my last. My impression of Crossover = Kia. Killer product at realistic prices. Very impressed.

Monitor asset manager actually report my monitor size as 28 in but does give the correct model number. I think XO used a lot of the firmware from their 28 in 4K monitor...
post #77 of 464
personally, compared to the other 2 monitors I use on a daily basis (shimian 1440p IPS, MBPR 15" IPS), color is noticeably weaker...they claim it is a AH-VA IPS type display, but that's like saying it's a 4k virtual 5k display...I'm not getting the PQ of better IPS displays from this VA panel. It's not bad though.

Nice. Thanks for the review. I'd love to see a similar one for the 289K smile.gif 28" one.

hey guys I too am looking into this monitor. I read abit back that you were toying with settings in the single display port and bypass selected. also something about there being different setting in the by pass for response time? Just wondering if any of you have tried that? last how are the black levels?
thanks
