People have been recommending this brand to me lately for a good cheap 27 inch monitor. I have never heard of this brand until just this last week. But supposedly they are IPS monitors, 27 inch for around $279. Anyone have any thoughts?

I have one and I love it. Great screen, colors, resolution, and you can overclock it up to 120Hz. Mine came with 2 messed up pixels that aren't noticeable while gaming so I'd definitely recommend it. One of my friends got one too and loves it as well.

ok cool, I'm not sure why they don't show up on pcpartpicker though. I was really nervous about possibly going with them cause they are an unknown korean brand supposedly, and not sure how they would stack up to an LG or Samsung. Does your have an HDMI port on it?

No dead pixels on mine. I ordered a regular unit, but there was a letter enclosed that sounded like it was hand picked (pixel perfect). However, the bleed is the bottom right corner is fairly noticeable on black/dark areas. Otherwise it's freaking gorgeous and I could never go back to a lower resolution.

what resolution does it go up to? (assuming you have the 27 inch) and is there an HDMI port?

well...it's at least the easy one to hook up haha, those little screws are annoying. But if it's really the same quality or better I might end up going with a QNIX for the monitor for my PC build. Got 2 good feedback posts for them so far!

Scouring through this thread helped me make my decision.
