And $14. That's the difference between OP's max budget and the Qnix, especially since the Qnix has free shipping to boot. I'd be willing to take a gander that OP could scrounge up around $14.

Well it's not 2ms is it? The Asus monitor's response time is 1ms versus the Qnix's 8ms. Not to mention less motion blur and even less with lightboost.

I was also thinking about adding the SquareTrade warranty on top of that as well, since I see it as a no brainer, so it was going to end up being closer to $50.

+1 for the Qnix

http://www.amazon.com/QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-2560x1440/dp/B00BUI44US/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1371571915&sr=8-3&keywords=qnix

So much for monitor than a 1080p TN, yet it's just $40 out of OP's price range... If you can afford it, monitors don't get much better than that. 2560x1440 + PLS colors is truly a sight to behold in games.

Green-Sum still has it for $289.99 with free shipping on Ebay. So its very, very close to his price range.

Green-sum is a good seller (was the 2nd person to start selling these korean monitors).

But amazon makes alot of buyers feel more comfortable. That's the reason most people don't buy these... if the Qnix was sold by newegg, it would be all over the place.

Yeah a 27" monitor at 1920x1080 up close would be awful, I would at least like 1920x1200 on a 27"
I edited the requirements in the 1st post just to make things clearer.

I would like a monitor that beats my Hanns-G HH251 in almost every aspect.
Hanns-G HH251 24.6" 1920x1080
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824254040

ASUS VS24AH-P 24.1" 1920x1200 $259.99-$35promo=$224.99 and free shipping promo ends 6/20
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236331&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r-_-Monitors+-+LCD+Flat+Panel-_-ASUS-_-24236331

The QNIX QX2710 monitor is very temping, I doubt I can purchase the extended warranty later on so I would have to get the extended warranty just for a little assurance because it is coming from South Korea off a guy on EBay. If it was sold on Newegg I believe it's price wouldn't be as cheap since newegg would get greedy to make a profit and it would steal sales from other overpriced monitors at this resolution.

I've read that the PLS Panel is made by Samsung and that it can be overclocked to 120Hz.
Does QNIX have a website and is it a quality product? I think I would have to wait until next time when they fix their quality control because its probably getting rejected by vendors.

QNIX QX2710 27" 2560x1440 $289.00+$41.99 3yr warranty=$330.99
