I used a glossy monitor in a room that had blackout curtains and everything. The glow of the monitor illuminated my face, and I could see myself in it.

Maybe I've been lucky and never gotten an "aggressive" matte coating, but glossy is far more distracting to me than matte.

Sounds like you were using far too much brightness for such a dark room. With that said, I prefer a semi glossy coating since I do need at least some degree of anti reflection.

I wouldnt recommend the 27" Korean monitors anymore. You're not saving that much money and the build quality is atrocious. Like if you ever plan on moving the monitor, you will regret it because of how cheesy the housing is put together, it'll get scratched up and everything is very loosely put together.

If you plan on owning the monitor for longer than a year, save up another $100 and get a brand name. Just my 2 cents after owning several.

While mine was purchased in the US, under the name Auria, it was a rebranded Korean IPS being sold at Microcenter a few years ago. (I even found the same chasis on other korean monitor, similar to what's going on right now with the Atron Vision) Mine's been through multiple moves, and it is true that the chassis has a couple of visible scratches on the back, but that in no way bothers me.

To get an overclockable IPS monitor, made for the US market, and still has terrible quality control, are those two offerings by Asus and Acer, that cost double what the Korean options do,

And while I did love the base of the Asus version, I sadly had to return my purchase as half the screen was dead on arrival.

My $350 Auria was purchased on 10/27/2012. Needed a new power brick about a couple of months ago. That is it. $650 Asus? Not even 1 second did that thing work. And there are so many reviews from people that, even if they left a good review (which is very odd) still had to go through two or three units before getting a good one. At least it seems like they actually test the korean ones before shipping them out.

Could you link me to the powebrick you bought? I have the same monitor and it went out 1-2 years ago and I just thought the monitor went bad. When it first happened I turned the screen on and it looked all f*cked up... It wouldn't display the desktop at all and I never suspected it was just the power supply because it had power, the display was just screwed.

So just recently I tried plugging it in and I don't get any power at all. I get a split second flash of power to the power button light and faintly see the Auria splash logo for a second then its dead... power button doesnt light up when I press it.... But if I unplug it and plug it in again I get that same second of power then it's dead.

So after researching online I found out they cheaped out on the power cords and thought maybe my monitor is still good. So I saw there was like 3 different ones on Amazon people claimed would work. I just ordered the cheaper one but when I tried using it I have no luck... So I would like to try one more cord thinking maybe the one they sent me doesn't work for this monitor or possibly it's just a lemon.

I got this one.

As a heads up, it gets really warm, but hasn't lit on fire or crapped out. I still make sure the monitor is off when I leave home though.

When mine died, the screen flickered rapidly, and then the light on the brick itself went out. I would unplug it, then the brick would light up for a moment, then die.

Good luck, hope it works for you.
