You could buy 2 freaking Qnix/XStars for that price. Not to mention the fact that you can order a Qnix/XStar from IPSLedMonitors.com and add a 3 year square trade warranty onto it for a total of $360 and be able to return the monitor within 30 days, no questions asked, if you are unsatisfied with it..

I originally ordered and received an Overlord X270OC, I got in when it was a "limited time" A+ batch. I can guarantee you that even that specific batch of A+ quality LG IPS used in the Overlord monitors did not even come close to the quality of what I am seeing from the PLS panel inside my Qnix (keep in mind though, that I am only comparing out of the box colors here, but still the colors on the LG - out of the box - were god awful, worse than my BenQ TN panel).

The X270OC that Overlord has offers nothing to justify the monitor being double the cost.

Excellent advice, this is precisely what i was needing. I will def go for either the Qnix or Xstar with the warranty instead of the Overlord. I guess the next step for me will be to research reviews on the two and decide which i would prefer to get. You say they are both the same pls panel inside? So all the features will be the same and the main difference will be the stand and bezel? Adjustability between the two might be the deciding factor between the two then, or semi glossy anti glare since thats not supposed to take away from the picture.

Absolutely the only difference between the Qnix/XStar is that the clear stub of the monitor stand can be pulled out with force on the XStar (note this is only necessary if you're wanting to remove the stand and place it on an articulating arm mount that attaches to your desk), whereas with the Qnix you have to open the monitor casing to unscrew the stub. Everything else is exactly the same between the two.

I suggest going with the 'matte' version as the anti-glare coating is very light an unobtrusive on image quality.

Thanks so much for the help. I decided to go ahead with the Qnix, I guessed at coupon codes and managed to get 10$ off with code 123. Unless anyone else knows a coupon code that would include free shipping then this is what I will pull the trigger on. I'll grab the 3 year warranty too, just to be on the safe side. I'll also be grabbing a different monitor stand so it will have room for adjustment.
