Nixeus Vue 27" H-IPS 2560x1440 LED Monitor (NX-VUE27) **USA BRAND** - Page 18

post #171 of 225
Thread Starter 
I had the opportunity to play with both monitors = I borrowed my friend's Microcenter Auria 27" and I currently have the NX-VUE27. Both are great monitors, look similar and most people purchase from where they are comfortable and at the price they are comforatable. But based off my own research, feed back from other forums/threads this what I have gotten between the two:

Auria = A- Grade panels
NX-VUE27 = A Grade panels.

Auria = basic stand
NX-VUE27 = Adjustable and custom stand.

Warranty is the same for both brands = 1 year

The bezel looks the same, OSD may look the same and the outputs may look the same - but Nixeus have stated that they are sourcing different internals (A grade panel batches vs A- grade panel panel batches, different PCB) and using different embedded software to drive their monitor.

The closest Microcenter to me is 100 miles away = $60 in gas for me and if there was a warranty exchange or return = another $60.

The NX-VUE27 launched at $430 by their re-seller, then price went up to $500 (Original MSRP stated in their press release) due to demand AND IT IS STILL SELLING and still causing Backorders!!? bigeyedsmiley.png

Amazon reviews show that they are taking care of their customers that had experienced issues.

Nixeus has opened a new market segment and the new market segment is responding at a higher level than expected. This raises some interesting supply and demand issues.

A. Under $500 is a market where people will respond greatly from an american based supplier.
B. LG wants to make A+ grade panels(not grade A or A- panels).

A few things will happen in my opinion.
1. The demand will outpace the supply of Grade A panels if LG manufactures to the needs of the purchase levels of manufacturers that use A+ Grade panels. If this happens Nixeus will always be backordered.
2. LG will increase panel output to keep up with the demand of all of their customers thereby creating a surplus of A+ panels that would be purchased by Nixeus and others that wish to offer a lower priced alternative.
2a. Along with this scenario is the fact that many people may switch from buying monitors with A+ panels because they really do not need an A+ panel for what they are doing, a Grade A panel will be adequate.
If this happens, the Premium monitor manufacturers may have to lower price to maintain relevancy and competitiveness or offer something better. If they compete on price, the market for 27" 2560*1440 becomes even bigger.
3. Because of the increased demand LG may raise ITS own price to the manufacturer(unless they have a contract, but contracts run out).

It will be interesting to see how it all works out over the next few years. It is a market that Nixeus alone is responsible for opening because Microcenter did literally nothing to promote this new value segment to the marketplace while Nixeus has done their fair share of PR work. If you look up (nixeus 27" monitor ips) on Google you will find twice as many hits for Nixeus than for Auria which has basically relied on word-of-mouth to get the message out(and they are also selling out very quickly when they get them in stock) even though they are a Grade A- panel).

If other companies see that profit is being made in this segment they will jump in with their own 27" 2560*1440 offering.. To start there is Acer, AOC, Gateway, and Viewsonic that are very likely candidates.

My monitor arrived yesterday, late afternoon. Putting it together was a breeze. all connections hdmi, dvi-d, power supply fit securely.

I used what was online for calibration references. Only one step I have problems with; Calibrating gamma. I could not get it to 2.2 on a scale from 1.2 - 3.0 color.

(The four bars at the left are the most important ones to get right. They represent a luminance that is 48% of the maximum. When the 48% setting is correct, you may wish to fiddle with other settings to get the bars for 25% and 10% to blend in at the 2.2 reading.)

I was able to bring it up to 1.7, but did not like the viewing results. All other calibrations went well. Please note I am not using any calibration equipment, or even a good calibration program.

For the price it is surely nice.

One other note:


My monitor just arrived; Nixeus NX-VUE27 WQHD 27" S-IPS Ultra High Resolution 2560x1440.


I am currently using a EVGA GTX 560 Ti Femi card. And it can be pushed up to 75 hz using the customize option in the nvidia settings box. I really would like to upgrade my graphics card. (Currently) getting 60-69 fps running guild wars 2 in 2560x1440.

I am using a ASUS P8Z68-V PRO GEN 3 motherboard with an Intel I5-2500k processor. I am thinking of upgrading to GTX 6xx card. It should be downgradable and let's face it, the cards today do not really use all the motherboard's bandwidth whether it be 2.0 or 3.0.

The other option is to just upgrade the I5-2500k in order to take advantage of the PCI Express 3.0.

Any feedback or corrections in my thinking would be appreciated.

Hi Liman23,

Thank-you for your comments and feedback. In regards to calibrating the NX-VUE27, the best way to do it is to use the monitor's own hardware to calibrate it. You can do this by bringing up the on screen display, turning Dynamic Contrast Ratio to "OFF," then go to the TEMPERATURE menu and select "USER" to make the necessary color temperature adjustments. There is also a setting that allows you to move the OSD MENU away from the center so it does not interfere with a colorimeter that may sit on the center of the monitor's panel.

In regards to gaming,what you say about PCI Express 2.0 vs 3.0 is true, the i5-2500k is more than enough at the moment and there are no Graphics Card that uses the PCI Express 3.0 to its full bandwidth potential. There is no bottleneck for PCI Express 2.0 for a GTX 670 and an i5-2500k from our experience. We upgraded our test PC from an i5-2500k to an i5-3570k and we saw no performance difference with a GTX 670 when it switched to PCI Express 3.0. Upgrading from a Sandy to the current Ivy bridge CPU is almost a side grade (unless you go to an i7-3770K of course).

From the communication and feedback from the this forum and others, it seems Haswell would be the better CPU upgrade. Until then, your i5-2500K would be more than enough for Guild Wars 2.

Thank you for the feedback. Moving the Menu to the right side makes calibrating easier.

I don't even want to think about the cost of a Haswell....14 cpu .. what power.. maybe extreme?

Why not just buy the Auria from Microcenter? They'll ship it to your house for under $450.

We apologize, due to high demand they are selling faster than we anticipated. We are producing the NX-VUE27 as fast as we can. We are in process of securing A+ Grade (Perfect Rated) and A Grade (one below perfect rated) LG Panels to meet demand.

The EQD Auria 27" at Microcenter is a good value, however it has been confirmed they are using LG panels that are rated two below perfect rated LG panels:
