Chinese 27" IPS Monitor Information

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I found it odd that only the Koreans were doing these IPS monitors. So last night I decided to look on taobao (chinese ebay?) to see what was going on there and I found some interesting stuff.
http://search.taobao.com/search?spm=a230r.1.8.18&q=27+ips&initiative_id=staobaoz_20120813&atype=b&cps=yes&filterFineness=2&source=suggest&bcoffset=1&suggest=0_2&bcoffset=2&filter=reserve_price[1350.01%2C1890]&price_range=lower#rankbar

I am going to put these in 3 categories based on the information i've translated using google. The chinese seem to be using unbranded monitors and their own brand of monitors ranging from 1250 CNY all the way to 3580 CNY. No korean monitors were found on taobao.

1. DIY Grade

These seem to be marked DIY B+ Grade and um, it's not hard to see why when you look at what they have to offer, lol.




Interestingly some mention HDMI inputs so I assume these things are using a scaler. All yours for 1250 CNY, lol.

2. Cheapest HDMI branded monitor

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.10.78&id=16628463129

One seller seems to be selling a Ruixian 27" VGA/HDMI/DVI monitor for 1680 CNY (£168) this one seems the most interesting out of all of them and if anyone knows chinese it might be worth contacting this seller to see if they ship internationally and find out more information about it since I think it might be a B+ grade.



3. Expensive not interesting monitors vs korean monitors

http://search.taobao.com/search?spm=a230r.1.8.18&q=27+ips&initiative_id=staobaoz_20120813&atype=b&cps=yes&filterFineness=2&source=suggest&bcoffset=2&suggest=0_2&filter=reserve_price[1890.01%2C2820]&price_range=main#rankbar

So yeah, these chinese monitors might be worth keeping an eye on if the price ever comes down to resonable prices and if you can find a seller that 1) speaks english 2) ships internationally

Would love to buy $190 DIY 2560x1440 IPSs, which would be about $50 less after shipping than the cheapest Korean IPSs on ebay, if only the Chinese didn't refuse to ship them overseas.

Lol @ the diy grade.
These look interesting, but the problem here is the shipping. The korean monitors actually cost around $200 if bought in Korea.... the eBay sellers include the shipping + their own markup.

I wonder. You can get the Apple Cinema Display panel from 149 on eBay. Apple part number LM270WQ1.

The logic board is around the same. Apple part number 661-5544

The power supply, if you want Apples is $99. Apple part number 661-5543

Just have to make your own case, maybe with a VESA mount.

The guys making the monitors should be making good margin, to give a sense of it, on asian auction sites, the panels go for $10 in lots of 1000.

Are you sure? That site shipped Xbox XDK units to international buyers so I assume some must ship international, and i do see EMS is offered. however I have not had a chance to install QQ and ask them myself yet.

I'm not, it's best I could understand from google translate. One I looked that mentioned EMS seemed to be apologizing for not shipping by EMS and another way, just local.

Oh okay. Theres also third partys that deal with the sellers for you but doing it that way is expensive so would be best buying the korean monitors instead.
