AURIA EQ276W 27" IPS LED Monitor Microcenter

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I was looking at this monitor over at microcenter and was wondering if anyone here could give some input on it. Its the Cheapest IPS that ive seen that has no dead pixel majority of the time. Here's a link to the monitor

Thanks!

Ordered last week, and it arrived Tuesday. It has an AG coating sadly enough. According to someone over at HardOCP:
Quote:
All of these monitors are now AG. If your box has a plastic handle in the middle of the top panel, glossy. If it has two perforated cardboard cutouts of the sides for your hands, AG. Same SKU, model number, all that stuff. The microcenter employees didn't know until a customer returned one and wanted to make sure his next one was glossy.

Is it possible to even request a glossy model?

Unless you are in the store probably not, theres a box with a white handle and one with handle cutouts. The first is glossy the latter is Matte. However i don't think you can specify that in an online order.

Just take the Beltway through DC on the Virginia side on your trip. There's a Microcenter 2 miles from the I66 exit in Vienna, VA.
