I-Inc 28 inch any good?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, I have been thinking about a monitor upgrade (and an SSD upgrade, but that is for a different thread) for months now and it's time to pull the trigger. This is the one I have been looking at and it looks awesome. I am coming from an Eyefinity setup so the bigger the monitor the better(under $250). Is it any good? Will it die on me?

I looked at this same monitor at Fry's. The salesman there told me it wasn't a good monitor. Later I caught him lying to me about another monitor so I can't believe anything he said. It looked good in person, color was great, size was big. I ended up not buying a monitor at all and am still using my TV. I know this isn't much help but if you can get a good warranty on it then I don't see where you can go wrong, plus you should have 14 days to return it if it good.

I don't trust salesmen in electronics stores to give me advice on purchases any more than I would the produce guy at my grocery store.

it's great!!

the same things has a hans-g and the hanspree.

i have the hans g and it's still working awesome.
post #6 of 17
it has very high ratings. i'd look at all the negative reviews then make up my mind.

i would pick the hannspree over it coz the hannspree has tv tuner and remote. and 2ms.

they're the same price and both highly rated.

At $250 for a 28" I really wouldn't expect a whole lot. The resolution is only 1920x1200, that thing won't look very good. A 24" at that price and resolution would look much better. I really wouldn't get anything larger than a 24" at 1920x1200/1080. Once you get something bigger than that you should start looking into 2560x1440/1600.

I don't have any proof but I would assume they used a cheaper TN panel for that monitor. I could very well be wrong but at only $250 I doubt the manufacture would put anything really nice into it.

Ok hold on.

That monitor is the same as the "famous" hans-g 28 inch. It is a FANTASTIC monitor. I have used 3 (doing builds for various people). It's true, you get what you pay for. It's NOT an ips pannel, sure, if you spend 600 bucks you can get something better, but at its price, it's a STEAL. Honestly, that monitor would be a good buy at $375.

Buy it and be happy, it is THE monitor I recommend to people at the sub $300 price range.

And yes, all this is coming from the guy with more than 4k worth of monitors (3 30 inch ips panels). I know how to judge a monitor, that one really looks pretty damn good for a TN.

The pixel pitch (density) is just fine. No worries at all. It's still WAY denser than the 1080p tvs some users here have taken to using. And sure it's TN, but EVERYTHING under $400 is a TN, that's kind of a given. And it's really a pretty nice looking TN.

Seriously, I have used both the INC and Hans-G version of this monitor. It rocks, get it and be happy.
