I'm going to have to say the Monoprice because the ASUS VS278Q is only 1080p

Not sure how taxes work with monoprice if I'm buying from california. Also, do they have extended warranty packages like microcenter offers?

monoprice is charged CA tax for those living in CA, bringing the price extremely close to the Auria.

If you need different inputs, get the Auria. The extra $50 or so is worth it. Though i dont have experience with their latest anti glare versions.

Im getting charged tax regardless. Basically the way im looking at it is i can get:

A: Korean for $320 no warranty
B: Monoprice for $390 w/ 1 year warranty
C:Microcenter for $490 w/ 2 year warranty

Think Im still favoring monoprice but not sure. Also, im not sure why having multiple inputs would really matter. Its there something wrong with just using dvi?Why would the display port on the auria justify such a premium?

You need DP ports with eyefinity, especially if you want to avoid tearing due to differing clock gens from using dissimilar ports. For ex. with a card with three or more display ports, having a panel with display ports built in is ideal because otherwise you have to buy dual link adapters to get 1440P. The dual link active adapters are 1, expensive over 100 bucks and 2, they can be flaky as hell. Thus with a panel with DP built in, you avoid those issues and its great to have options.

$490 because of shipping? after tax the $399 auria is around $430.. monoprice after tax would be around $420.. this is at least where i live. Unless you're doing will call at monoprice you still have to pay for shipping too.

i would also probably guess the premium is due to having speakers (although not very good ones) and the ability to pass sound through DP and HDMI.

He's probably tacking on an extra year of warranty cuz the Auria only comes with 1 yr.

Interesting, didnt know that. Doesn't effect my situation much though, I have no plans of ever using surround/eyefinity again. Pros didn't out weigh the cons for me.

This ^. And that microcenter price didn't include my gas which would honestly add about $50.

On a side note, any chance that 1440p screens will drop in price much with 4K on the horizon. I could wait a few months if it meant saving a $100.

I doubt it.. until 1440p because closer to the "standard" the prices wont change at all. That could be years

Could anyone who got a 27" or 30" Monoprice monitor comment on the lack of or presence of antiglare coating? More recent Microcenter Auria batches have been coming with antiglare coating applied.

Squaretrade? +$80 for 4-year warranty.
