New Monoprice 27" 2560x1440 "No Image Defects" - Page 3

post #21 of 41
Thread Starter 
I was expecting it to be very similar to the Nixeus, but it's cheaper isn't it? I can't find a Nixeus for less that $500 now.

I got one of the 30 inch dell knock-offs from them a couple of months ago, and the brightness controls didn't function (confirmed by many people in the reviews on their website) and they had a Youtube video claiming that it was an LED when it was actually CCFL. It's apparent that whoever got Monoprice into the monitor business is either pretty dishonest, or just doesn't know what they're doing.

The 30" brightness works fine, it's just labeled contrast (and there is no contrast adjustment.)

Yeah, but the Auria panel is only $400 and it appears to be the same thing.

Hi There,
Ordered three of these for a new Obutto revolution rig I am building for fun.

I think they are pretty awesome. Fired them up for the first time last night to looks for image consistency across panels. There were no defective pixels.

I currently have 3 Dell u3011, a dell u2707 and 3 27"asus TN panels. While the color is not as accurate as the Dell u3011's for my intended uses: non-twitch gaming its awesome.

This monitor has a glossy screen and has great viewing angles. I wasa pretty surprised to have the monitors pretty much uniform out of box at this price.

When I game I like vibrant saturated colours so this delivers.

So there is no confusion here is the link to the three I purchased:
http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=113&cp_id=11307&cs_id=1130703&p_id=10489&seq=1&format=4#feedback


Despite paying the list price, plus $200 for shipping and $200 for customs, to Canada. They are steal well worth the cash.


All the connectivity options are a bonus. Never used the speakers so can't speak to that.

My use case was:
  • Good angle viewing (for tri monitor set up), so TN out of question
  • Saturated Bright color that pops
  • Affordability
  • Under 9Kg mass
  • A little overclockability
  • Glossy, edge to edge glass


My only cons, and none were gamebreakers:

  • Little thicker than expected bezel
  • On Screen Menu is counter intuitive

Ohh BTW that was my first post. I lurked around these forums for years though. You guys have been super helpful, so thought I'd give my two cents back if it helped anyone.

Thank you darkerlight for sharing your experience with this new monitor. I know other OCN members interested will come here to read and any input from actual owners is always a valued source of information. Speaking of welcome, Welcome to OCN as a long time lurker first time poster. smile.gif

Wait, are you saying you spent $850 on a $450 monitor, or am I misreading this? If you did, you got a horrible deal, considering $850 can buy you a high end Dell/Asus/viewsonic panel.

Its Not a brightness setting that has any effect of any kind on fhe backlighting/black levels. Thats what a brightness setting does. Contrast adjusts white intensity, thats what the contrast setting did. They were labeled right, the brightness setting just didnt work. The reason that a brightness setting on an lcd panel also ups the light output, is due to the fact that adjusting the backlight is generally how black levels are adjusted on an LCD.

this is the down side of this IPS "Glass laminate glossy panel with antiglare coating" many people won't like it included myself. $500 to try to remove the antiglare is a bit too high to takes chances.
