Just received the CrossOver. Wow, this thing really IS all made of metal!!! This is seriously solid.

Obviously, the lack of USB, card reader, all those things I'm used to on my Dell 2407/2408 is a bit annoying, but I'll just use the 2408 in portrait mode and it'll be fine :)

Btw, for those who don't care about the all-metal construction, this panel can be had from Monoprice for $390 less the 20% coupon going on right now, which is pretty crazy.

Not entirely - discount is $79, shipping is $57. But yeah, you have a point - you should do this if you can ship cross-border ($13 shipped to NY state for instance).

I guess the downside of it being made all of metal is that because it's so heavy, it tends to vibrate as you type, lol.

Shouldnt it be the opposite? So heavy it does not shake at all?

Well... this kind of depends on how solid the base and the attachment from the screen to the base is... :)

This is more accurate of a statement, more heavy means more stable.

Unless* it's built poorly, which is what Pseudo Nim is try to imply? haha correct me, cause I want another 27' and it's gonna be a Crossover!

Warranty will be problematic...

I've had my 3View PCBank PB 2700 (non super) for 11 months and it's still running strong.

My Shimian was working fine for 8 months, now half of screen is having problem. Any quick fix?

It happened yesterday and today. I unplugged the power for about 1 hour and it went back to normal. When I turn on this morning, it was ok. Until probably 30 mins ago, the problem came back. Is the power? or the main board?

I'm curious as to people's success rate connecting a laptop via HDMI and supporting the full 2560x1440 resolution, rather than getting 1920x1080 interpolated up..

I was just advised that an Acer Aspire was able to do it.
