Cant decide between Crossover 324K vs Crossover 30X

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ive been having trouble deciding between these two monitors, im currently using a Dell U3011 and its awesome but id like to upgrade to something new. Does the 2560x1600 Crossover 30X produce better colors than the 4K Crossover 324K? My main worry about going with a 32" 4K monitor is the input lag. Are these two monitors capable of producing better colors and overall picture than my Dell U3011? Is there any reason i should consider the 2560x1600 Crossover 30X over the Crossover 324K, or is 2560x1600 just not worth going for anymore? I currently run a XFX 7970 but plan on upgrading to a XFX R9 Fury X so hopefully that would be enough if i decide to go with the 324K.

Thanks in advance.

The Crossover 30X uses a wide gamut panel which suffers from excessive white glow when viewing dark content, excessive overshoot ghosting (same as the Dell 3014) and lacks an sRGB mode which means that without color management (only supported by OSX and work related programs like Photoshop) colors will be very over-saturated and inaccurate.

Left=non-color manged (available in OSX and work related programs like photoshop) wide gamut monitor Right=Normal monitor Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality

The 3011 also uses a wide gamut panel which over-saturates colors when not set to the sRGB mode, and sucks even compared to modern 21.5" IPS. The 324K has 50ms of input lag but has much better image quality than all 30" IPS existence aside from the NEC PA302W (only 30" without obvious overshoot ghosting, proper sRGB emulation and a non-grainy matte coating unlike the CCFL back-lit models). The BenQ BL3201PH (negligible input lag) and Qnix QHD3216R (30ms delay similar to the 3011) both support Free-Sync and have much better image quality than all 30" except for the NEC PA302W.
