So they not only sell it for less, but also dump around half of their panels? How would that net any profit?
And I can't imagine that Nixeus got a better deal with AUO than Asus pr AOC regarding panels. If they want a better QC, then they have to sort through the supply from AUO and scrap ~ 50% of their panels. That simply is not profitable for a 300-350$ monitor.
So in the end I think it's the same, just different package. Could be wrong, ofc.
If they have figured out the manufacturing method to cut down BLB, the QC will be better in that sense, it's not dependant on AUO. Which is maybe the worst defect with these panels.
