Crossover 27 Fast 144 (VA, 144hz, Freesync)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have ordered this new panel from Newegg (Dayssale) which should arrive within 5 days. There isn't any info on this monitor and how it performs, so I'll use this as a placeholder until I can add more info.

Currently Newegg had the best price on the monitor compared to Green-sum and Dream Seller.

I was debating this, curved 34" 1440p or 4K. 28" 4K TN has not impressed me color wise coming from a now dead QNIX 2710, and 144hz VA with Freesync is tempting.

I'm in the process of a new PC build, but will be holding off on upgrading my 7950 until Polaris hits this summer. Won't be able to really test Freesync until then.

The 27 fast does not utilize freesync at 144hz, freesync is only at 60hz.

I think the range is to 90, but I like to play around with settings and tweaks. Maybe it will allow it with a few software tweaks. Looking forward to testing when received.

It says FreeSync 35-90hz in specs.
It is using the 144hz auo ahva panel

Lol did they write 144Mhz on the box, not very professional tongue.gif

Got the monitor. Looks much nicer than the Qnix it replaced, color and hardware wise.

Waiting on a DP to mini DP cable to test 144hz. Waiting for the new AMD cards this summer to try Freesync.

The buttons for the menu are on the back of the panel and awkwardly placed. That's the only negative I've found so far, but thank god for the remote to use instead. No dead pixels. BLB is very noticeable on a black screen.

Soooo, how is it? I'm trying to decide which ones to buy, getting 3 for sim racing. Mostly stuck between this 144hz and the qnix 1440p

I thought this was a IPS-type panel. Rather, AHVA which is IPS-type. AHVA not being the same thing as VA.

It's fantastic.

I'm not happy that I bought this thinking I would get an AMD card in the near future, and then the 1070 gets announced. I'll have to live without the Freesync feature.

144hz works flawlessly. Color Accuracy is better than my old Qnix. Backlight bleed is there, but only noticeable on a pitch black screen with no image.

I got it on sale for $439 at Newegg from dayssale. $457 seems to be the non pixel perfect price via Green-Sum. It's a little pricey, but it's one of the only 144hz IPS (AHVA) Korean monitors available with Freesync. Early adopter fee.

New user here!

I just pulled the trigger on the perfect pixel 27 FAST yesterday from green-sum. Was having buyers remorse right after between the Fast or the 32S or even the 32 4K version. Hopefully it will turn out fine, no BLB or IPS glow, etc. Coming from an old 1920x1200 Dell which has been solid for YEARS! I liked having the extra 1200 real estate vs 1080. I think it was a PLS or PVA panel or something, not sure. Haven't poked around the site yet, are there any recommended monitor testing/calibration programs I should use on this thing?
