2019 Korean Monitor?

I bought the QNIX Korean monitor a few years back (OC'ed to 96hz), still runs great but looking to upgrade. Was wondering if they have updated models?

Looking for: 1080p, 144hz or 240hz, no preference on size. Just going to be used for cs go and daily use.

Thx yall

I want to know this too. I made a mistake in buying the Alienware Ultrawide. It has ****ty scaling and HDMI 1.4 for such an expensive display.

They don't seem to be notably cheap(er) than what brand names offer these days so it may not be worth the hassle imo.

Back in the day people tried these because getting IPS QHD monitor in other ways was way more expensive. Now you can get one for below $400, importing one from Korea isn't going get cheaper than that and there are risks involved of course.

Like if you only want a 1080p 144Hz, there are so many good cheap options, why bother looking for a no brand KR monitor. AOC C24G1 is really good and only goes for $200, you get warranty and everything. If you want TN, ViewSonic XG24, it's same price. Maybe you can save a little getting a KR monitor but is it worth it? It's not like it's going to be $100. That's why people don't care about KR monitors anymore.

Where do you live?
If you're in the US you have a ton of options for cheap 1080p panels, if you want 240hz you're limited to TN but if 144hz is fine you could get an IPS panel which looks much better.
I won the lottery with the Nixeus 27" EDG, while that's not what you're looking for I'd totally buy another panel from them.

Just an update to this thread, i went with the following:

Dell D2719HGF. Price was around $240 CAD before taxes but there were promotional offers i had that made me go through with the purchase, 24% in savings through discount codes and cashback.

Everything from Korean sellers was much more expensive, i guess they're less competitive now or they might have been 1440p 144hz whereas the Dell monitor above is a TN 1080p 144hz Freesync. But still, always run a risk of getting hit with customs/duties with overseas orders, warranty, etc..

I'm on my 3rd Korean 1440p IPS. A 16:10 32" fried a big chip. Then a 27" died for whatever reason, I thought it was my 980ti. Now this 1 has lost it's DVI input for some reason. So time to retire it now, and get a 27" 144Hz panel.

This time I want a warranty tho, and with shipping inside Canada. I wish we had walk-in stores that sell this stuff here, I think there's only Walmart, Staples and BestBuy that might, just might carry top-end gaming monitors. I don't think small stores have anything besides low-end monitors.
