in regards to prices, they are DEFINITELY overpriced...especially apple. they do have 600% markup on all products.
but to each his own
regardless buy 1440p/1600p
Well the monitors aren't a 600% mark up over a $400 crossover. Yes ik they're cheaper, I have two myself.... I know the ratio lol, bezel design, bezel materials, and connectivity make up my argument for the big brands. I use my 3 USB ports on my apple daily, I'm sure plenty attest to the SD card reader on Dells, and Apple only has one input would that not have the same input lag as a Crossover theoretically? In addition to that, despite both my Crossovers being pixel perfect they both have the slightest of yellow fringing on the top and bottom when in horizontal and the back light bleed is worse than my apple. I'm all for 1440p anything but just know what you want, a u2713hm with hdmi, 4 USB 3.0 ports, displayport, and VGA with a warranty out of the box, a lot don't want to pay extra for a square trade (or whatever it's called) warranty because they know the monitor's longevity isn't proven enough. Just my view
Edit: Would I like cheaper prices? Yes don't get me wrong but they'll never drop the prices below a set point, probably $600 minimum for any one of them. Also judging from your usernames do you have a 350z?
Just curious, I have one myselfEdited by Azefore - 3/16/13 at 2:22pm
