Do you guys think 2560x1600 or 1440 displays will get cheaper soon?

And no, I'm not talking about the ebay Korean monitors. I'm talking about the American branded ones, from Dell & HP. And I believe ASUS & Samsung both have 1440 monitors out as well.

Historically, high resolution monitors have always cost alot. But now with Korean monitors surfacing, do you guys think the American branded displays will go down in price?

The Dell u2713HM was supposed to be a discounted model of the Dell u2711. But it only dropped a $100, so I don't think we'll see the Korean prices on Samsung, Asus or Dell monitors anytime soon, unfortunately.

The weird thing is...I've always heard of these huge displays but they never make it to the mainstream....so 2560 is still the highest resolution monitor you can buy....for how long though? It seems like forever....to me I don't think its any time soon like you imply

What does American branded have to do with it? You know all of those panels are made in South Korea right? There are no monitors that I am aware of that are produced in the US. You can get a 1440P monitor for under $300, it can't get much cheaper then that.

Sadly no. I tracked the Dell 30" series monitors for years and never really saw a price drop for the different models - or much of a sale for that matter.
When I bought mine from Amazon (Dell u3011) I didn't pay tax and got free shipping. That was it. The huge monitors are niche market items that command niche pricing.

My two cents - if this is just for gaming, buy a large high quality 1900x1200. The added real estate comes at a painful premium - that might require a new or second gpu to maintain the same settings.
I went from an Asus vw266h (25.5" diagonal) to this. And while the Dell is better for viewing pictures (simply amazing if the image is high res!), it doesn't feel that much larger when gaming.

American branded does have something to do with it. It's the warranty & support that the ebay korean monitors can never match.....And yes I do realize these panels are LG and made in South Korea

ASUS just released.

ASUS PB278Q 27" IPS 2560x1440 $699.99 (NewEgg)

Next year, I'm giving some thought to trying out an IPS monitor. I don't expect pricing to go down on these IPS 60HZ models until 120 Hz IPS monitors pick up.

Considering the extremely small chance that you would get a defective monitor, you could buy a second one and still be under the cost of these so-called "American branded" ones. Monitors like the U2711 and the Apple Cinema Display are the biggest cons out there. $400-$700 more for a so-called "warranty". I've had thousand dollar inferior 60 Hz Apple Cinema display come with a stuck pixel and four "2B" 120 Hz Catleap's come pixel perfect for half the cost and they blow the Apple out of the water.

It's your money. wink.gif

But catleaps don't offer exchange for one pixel or back light bleed....if you get a crap one, oh well you live with it....American branded ones will exchange it until you are satisfied....at least Dell & HP does

And what if your catleap dies or starts becoming stupid a few months into ownership? You are pretty much assed out....Dell & HP you are covered for 3 years with very quick turn around....Dell overnights you another monitor

Btw this thread isn't about catleap vs x brand of monitor....we all know the pros and cons of each....lets keep this on topic please
