    I ordered a Catleap model of the Q270, but there was enough of a hassle around importing it that I'd be glad to pay a premium on a second copy to avoid all that- plus, the DP input is nice! Reply

    I was looking at a Catleap Q270 myself. This model looks much better. Little more expensive, more ports. Reply
  • JMS3072 - Wednesday, August 01, 2012 - link

    Yeah, if I were getting this, it'd be for the ports. Monitors like this are best on a VESA stand, so that's not a factor.

    By the way, the Catleap has been one of the best value upgrades I've ever put into my computer.

    Hassle importing? Which country? I'm in the U.S. and it just got delivered straight to my door like a normal domestic shipment. Didn't have to do anything other than press buy and send payment. Reply

    Excited to see a review of this monitor. I'm changing jobs next week so I'll have to trade down from the 27" panel in my work iMac for something smaller. I'd love to pick up a 27" with this resolution on the cheapish! Reply

    Can't say much for the aesthetic design though, looks pretty tacky, although I guess that's what you get from a low end monitor.

    The stand looks good though, considering it has rotate on such a cheap monitor.

    Yeah, I don't understand why companies can't just put a uniformly sized matte black plastic bezel around their displays. Dell does it.

    Do these companies have no taste or is there a technical reason for ugly monitors?

    While I agree in concept, I find my Dell 2412M extremely cheap looking (Though suppose the monitor was pretty cheap...Hmm...).

    I think my Dell 2407 wfp (fpw? pfw? pwf?) on the other hand, is really nice looking. Unfortunately, its power button broke, stuck in the on position... But at least it's a nice looking broken button.

    So you think the majority of people would prefer how this monitor looks to how a matte black, uniformly thick bezel looks? I doubt it. Reply

    The inclusion of rotation adjustment and DisplayPort input makes this well worth the cost over the eBay models, though I'd like to know what the seller's policy for dead/stuck pixels are. Reply

    I recently ordered a Crossover 27Q from dreamseller for $340 on ebay. The monitor arrived fairly quickly and there were no shipping costs to me.

    This monitor is pretty amazing considering the price. The build quality is exceptional; the monitor's chassis is almost all metal. The only downsides to the monitor are the lack of connectivity options. The Nixeus Vue seems like it might be good for those who need the extra options or a set of speakers, or are wary of buying an expensive item like this on ebay, but for those who just want a really nice looking, well built monitor with DVI connectivity I'd really recommend the Crossover.

  • abrowne1993 - Wednesday, August 01, 2012 - link

    I should have added, my monitor arrived without any dead or stuck pixels. The screen is very vibrant and bright. I'm certainly not qualified to make any professional judgments on the quality and color reproduction, but to me it looks as good as the Samsung IPS displays I've seen. Reply

    Nice for support, but what about input lag and 120Hz capability?

    I would personally choose the 120Hz model and take my chances with support.

    That, and adding scalers probably means this has more input lag than most.
    Reply
  • cheinonen - Wednesday, August 01, 2012 - link

    As nothing in the literature I've seen says 120 Hz, and IPS doesn't typically do 120Hz, I'd assume it's a 60Hz panel. Additionally with the panels that people were getting and running faster then 60Hz, almost all of those were early panels, and they were running past the rated frequencies. I also don't think anyone got 120Hz, but I didn't follow it that closely. I don't believe that anyone that is buying an import panel now is getting one that can do 120Hz. Reply
  • jkostans - Thursday, August 02, 2012 - link

    There are IPS panels that will do 120Hz, the manufactures just don't care to implement it on the PCB side of things.....

    The industry is still locked into 60Hz is good enough, and 120Hz is only useful for 3D.

    120hz is most certainly useful for things other than 3D. Reply
  • Destiny - Tuesday, August 07, 2012 - link

    Based from what I read - they don't work at 120Hz right out of the box and you may have to do some tweaks or modifications to overclock the PCB to make it work - there is also no information on the life of Monitor PCB due to overclocking... Also I cannot find any information about LG IPS Display panels natively supporting 120Hz. Reply
  • Destiny - Tuesday, August 07, 2012 - link

    Unless, it officially comes from LG Display regarding a specific IPS panel models supporting 120Hz - I'm not going to believe specs listed on a website created a month or two ago... plus if it does work by overclocking the PCB, it may not really be 120Hz on the IPS panel or it may degrade the IPS panel due to out of specs tinkering.

    Reason why I am saying this is because my friend got suckered into buying a Catleap on ebay claiming 120Hz and it doesn't do 120Hz even with the tinkering.

    Also my friend had to fill out a FCC Form 740 to get his Catleap to clear customs - Apparantly the Korean Ebay Monitors are not approved for sale and distribution in USA because they are not certified by the FCC...

    The Korean units most people are buying for around $300 or so do not have any glass, so there is no need to worry over reflection or heavy-handed antiglare effects.

    microcenter has been selling the same monitor for a few months under the 'eqd' 'auria' name for $399.

    they look to be using a different stand.

    i've had some dud's (one with a bright stuck pixel and one that had an input board failure within the 30 day return window) but also have 2 that are running solid.
    Reply
  • ganeshts - Wednesday, August 01, 2012 - link

    I am not fully sure they are the same.. Just checked up EQD Auria - 1000:1 contrast instead of 1500:1, 100W power consumption instead of 72W, and HDMI doesn't seem to advertised with the capability of carrying 2560x1440 resolution, while the Vue's port is HDMI 1.4 compliant.. (as per the information we received from Nixeus) Reply
  • sleekblackroads - Wednesday, August 01, 2012 - link

    ahh must be using some different internals.

    looks like the same panel and case. case must be generic because it looks like the pcbank brand is the same case as well.

    also for the guy asking about glossy.. the auria's at least are straight glossy. no ag. i guess not sure if nixeus went with ag or not but i'd say not likely
    Reply
  • abakshi - Saturday, August 04, 2012 - link

    The Auria does support 1440p over HDMI, and it looks identical to this (the only visible differences are the Nixeus logo and the stand). EQD's specs list "<100W," leaving just the contrast ratio-- but then again, the specs don't even mention that the monitor has a DisplayPort input, which it does. Most likely the same screen. Reply
  • Sabresiberian - Wednesday, August 01, 2012 - link

    Didn't see a mention of warranty, which is the thing that will set this unit apart from the Korean ones that generally have a "14 day return policy, exchange only, you pay $120 shipping."

    The other thing is - the panels are "A" panels, but they need to clarify what that means. Dead pixels? Stuck pixels? Backlight problems? What IS an acceptable reason for return, and what isn't?

    I am very hopeful here and wish them all the success they can stand. We need a shake-up in the price-fixed monitor market stuck in providing us with low standards. The Korean units selling on eBay for around $300, shipping form S. Korea included, breaks that story wide open. Sure, they aren't built like an Apple Cinema display with A+ panels, but take away that $120 shipping cost form S. Korea and you end up with the same panels as used in the Apple Cinema in a retail package costing $180 that has a very good chance of providing an image quality equal to the Apple screens.

    On the OCN & AnandTech threads and on the Nixeus Forums shows 1 year warranty. They are also not a fly by night company like some people think - they've been in business for almost 3 years and have numerous Authorized Re-Sellers including NewEgg, AMAZON, Comp-u-plus, J&R Computers and some retail = so they may be the real deal when it comes to these monitors.

    more inputs = more input lag, true or false? Reply
  • atotroadkill - Thursday, August 02, 2012 - link

    I am currently using a multi-input WQHD display... if I turn on V-Sync you notice the input lag... but I play without V-Sync, and there is none or I don't notice the input lag when I turn off V-Sync... I rather deal with the screen tearing... Reply
  • cheinonen - Thursday, August 02, 2012 - link

    Having more inputs should not directly cause an issue. The display I just finished with has only 1-2 ms of input lag, and it has multiple inputs. The panel lag was a far bigger delay that the input lag. You can easily have a single input display that does a lot of video processing (color adjustments, etc...) and has a lot of lag because of that design, and a display with lots of inputs and much faster processing that exhibits very little lag. The number of inputs really doesn't matter. Reply

    Those monitors and at that price are still a great value if people are willing to take the gamble and get luck. But some people including myself are not.

    From my research and from what I've read, several reasons why people may choose this model/brand and pay more:

    1) Warranty and Support, some people are not comfortable having to deal with service or warranty from over seas. These include one year warranty from a local USA brand.

    2) Most of the over sea brands are using A- Grade LG Panels or may be even lower panel grades... the Nixeus Vue are guaranteed A Grade LG Panels so they cost a bit more...

    3) These are Multi-Inputs using HDMI 1.4 and Display Port 1.2

    4) These include an OSD (On Screen Display) so you can use the monitor to calibrate instead of Windows OS or your GPU software.

  • Mr Perfect - Friday, August 03, 2012 - link

    Those are all good reasons! I'm glad to hear these screens have OSDs. It might be something you only use once during initial setup, but it's pretty important.

    Any idea if these are standard gamut displays? I bought a wide gamut display, and it screws up color rendering in games(since they ignore color profiles).
    Reply
  • cheinonen - Thursday, August 02, 2012 - link

    A simple reason for me? My laptop only has DisplayPort output and using one without a DP input means an active adapter which costs more money and takes up a USB port instead of just a single cable. I'm also out of DVI outputs on my video card on my desktop, but have DisplayPort outputs to spare right now, so using those is a benefit to me as well.

    That's just me, but I'm certain there are others with their own reasons as well.

    I also have two 27" IPS LED monitors from Crossover (korean) and they are almost flawless.
    The stand and bezel is much better then this Nixeus. Also the Crossover comes with a nice metal backplate and feels very rigid. I bought the tiltable version which sold for $340 usd. (Only DVI-D input)

    Anyhow, I'm quite happy with them. There is some slight light bleeding to due cheap manufacturing. Also some 'dust' rainbow pixels on black (at the side) but when using it you don't notice it at all.
    Also I prefer the glossy look which is easier on the eyes. And there are very little options if you want to have a glossy panel :( Most review sites don't even mention them at all)
    But for the price it is a very nice monitor! You might want to do a korean monitor roundup ;)
    Also it looks a bit 'modern' and sleek, instead of the catleap and nixeus monitors.

    ...lower pricing on monitors in the 2560x1600/1440 resolution. This should have been the "ordinary" for PC monitors a long time ago, but greedy companies started milking their consumers and just wouldn't stop.

    Unbelievably, it took Steve Jobs forcing the higher resolution display into an iPhone to get the ball rolling and still, look how long it took for that ball to reach the PC.

  • cheinonen - Thursday, August 02, 2012 - link

    This is an area where I don't like labeling the companies as being greedy just because they want to make a profit. Apple can afford to put a high resolution display into a phone because they buy millions of them, and because it is part of an ecosystem where they will make up the money later on apps and other purchases.

    A good place to look is the TV industry, where almost every company is now losing billions of dollars because they've had to send prices to the bottom so fast no one can really afford decent innovation anymore. Plasma technology is stuck where it was when Pioneer got out of the market, because the profit margins five years ago weren't enough to keep going. Does paying $1,000 for a display suck? Sure, but paying that also pays for the development costs of better displays. OLED displays this year are the first real improvement in TVs in years and years and will be $8,000 or so, but that's the cost of new technology. It's not being greedy, it's the fact that if they were to lose money making it, they wouldn't bother developing it.

    Samsung has no issues with this and they don't continually have a massive margin; this is perhaps why their stock is at $1,500 and the company you reference at ~$400.

    They're the ones coming out with super high res LCD and SAMOLED displays, massive quad core phones, 3D TVs, Smart TVs, S Health related paraphenlia, washers, dryers, fridges, etc.

    Uh... Most phones were already hitting the 240-280dpi ranges by the time the idevice came out for years (and the only reason why they weren't 300+DPI is because most screens were 4" or greater, not a puny 3.5" screen). A slight bump to 314? That matched the Sharp Aquos 308SH, which is about 306DPI... in 2005. LOL

    Phones are now reaching 450 dpi. Thanks to everyone else who didn't stick with 320x480 (CGA resolution) for 4 years or even a lowly 900x600 or some weird combination like that.

    To give proper credit, at best, we'll give him the credit for a 7" monitor with a reasonably high res.

    I've been watching these on ebay for months. Have been hesitant to order a large expensive item from a foreign company and am glad to see these now offered by domestic sellers. My one issue is resolution. I'm currently running SB without a graphics card and am therefore limited to 1920x1200. Have been having a hard time finding a list of supported resolutions for this and other similar models. When I do, I notice that 1920x1200 is NOT supported.

    If your computer doesn't let you choose higher outputs than 1920x1200 then you can probably make a custom one yourself.

    when I connect my laptop to the auria via HDMI, the max resolution is 1920x1080; If I try to set a higher custom resolution, it says I have exceeded the bandwidth of the connection. Does this mean that either the laptop's or monitor's HDMI is not 1.4? Reply
  • atotroadkill - Thursday, August 02, 2012 - link

    It may be that your laptop's hardware does not support higher than 1920x1080... Only recently new Graphics Cards (GPU) support 2560x1440 - with HDMI 1.4 Reply
  • cheinonen - Friday, August 03, 2012 - link

    HDMI chipsets that support all features of 1.4a, including higher resolutions, are fairly new. Most 1.4 chipsets just added support for 3D formats, but no extra bandwidth as none of the 3D formats required more data than 1080p60 already did. Displays and cards that can do higher resolutions over HDMI are fairly recent, and often don't make this feature clear. Reply

    I purchased one of the Korean monitors from eBay a month or so ago. I got the $295.00 Qnix because the stand looked better than the Catleaps and Achievas. Best computer component purchase I have ever made. No dead pixels, very little backlight bleed and a reasonable sturdy stand. The picture is gorgeous. I may get a second one to replace my current 2nd monitor. (Gateway 1920x1200). After getting this IPS panel I won't be going back to a TN panel ever again. Reply

    I have a Auria EQ276W 2560x1440 LED IPS monitor I bought from Microcenter as well. From what I can see of the Nixeus NX-VUE27 above, it looks to be the exact same product as the Auria EQ276W from Microcenter. The only difference is the brand name on the front, model number and shape of the base of the stand (hight adjust). The Microcenter Auria EQ276W is available now though and for $30 less at ~$399.99 USD. Also I believe Microcenter will ship this one so no need to have a store near you. They also have a 30 day no hassle money back guarantee.

    You can see better pictures of it here:

    http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1694047

    And here:

    http://www.overclock.net/t/1288941/e...m-micro-cen...

    And yes it's an excellent monitor that looks amazing with a 1 year warranty.

    As for the Korean monitors off eBay, they typically only have one input and if you need to take advantage of the warranty you would have to ship it back to Korea (on your dime). Also on some models you would have to partially disassemble the unit just to remove the stand.

    I calculate price, tax and shipping...

    Nixeus Vue:

    Comp-u-plus = $430 shipped and no tax for me
    AMAZON = $450 shipped two day and no taxt for me

    Auria EQ276W 2560x1440 from Microcenter:

    $399+ $17 shipping + $31 tax = $447

    Plus the Nixeus Vue has a stand that can pivot 90 degrees, height adjustable, and can turn left or right...

    Please correct me if I am wrong that the Nixeus Vue is actually a better deal...

    My Dell 2407 fwp (or whatever). Had nearly the same power button sticking problem. except it was stuck in the 'off' position. grrrrrr. The replacement from Dell is now gong bad with funny smudges on the panel. If two out of two didn't go bad, I'd say it's a nice monitor. But it is when it works. We have a Viewsonic 27" here in IT we mess around with. This is really the perfect size of monitor, though we all have different tastes. It's only 1080p though. I have a 30" HP that has so much detail the Viewsonic looks a little no-so-sharp ....sometimes. Like playing racing sims.
    I think any 27" 1440 monitor is really a sweet spot.

    "With a price of $430, it is sure to attract a number of users who have been on the fence about ordering one of the Korean monitors off eBay."

    I just bought the 2703 Catleap from Ebay for $295.

    It shipped to me by DSL in four days.

    It has only Dual Link DVI but who cares...you only need to hook it up once.

    Anyway if you live in the USA you don't pay anything else.

    These are all 295-330 on Ebay with express shipping free.

    First, most people do not understand how manufacturing works. This is not a rebranded Auria or a renamed unit from the company that rebranded the Auria. This unit has different electronics and has a "Grade A panel". since all 27" 2560*1440 are made by LG you can choose the casing and bezel you want to put that panel into. You can also get custom electronics with different grades of components to put on a PCB to control the panel. Therefore you can build a custom unit that may look like another unit but it is quite different. Tooling molds to create a custom injection molded casing will only add to the cost. This has the look and feel of a quality build. I received mine Tuesday and I am VERY pleased with it.

    I am not coming from a TN panel usage. I have been using 6 24" 1920*1200 PVA panels for the last 3 years for work and gaming. Long story short, I will be getting at least 2 more of these in the near future. The next order will arrive on Sept 15th and as soon as I finish here I am going to pre-order. WHY, because I really think that when the word gets out(legitimate reviews) on these they will be back-ordered for months. I think more people will be more comfortable with buying from a stateside supplier than trying to buy directly from Korea. I personally do not have the time for the potential issues that may happen with customs, OR, down time if there is a warranty issue.

    The picture is bright but perfect, I will probably calibrate this to get all out of it that I can. The speakers are loud, clear, and the best I have ever heard on a monitor. I have only gamed on it with Crysis 2 but was amazed at the clarity, this is a whole new game now. This particular monitor is also rated at 75HZ. I am not sure if they all are or if that is the official spec. I will be trying out some other games this weekend. I also may attempt 3D through AMD, HDMI, & TRIDEF.

    Their pixel policy seems to be very good.

    I ordered the ($309 total shipped) Matrix 27" from EBAY member id bigclothcraft in Hong Kong area and IT'S PERFECT. It came with 220 cord and 110v power adapter and DVI-D Cable. Even though many of the Ebay Ads for 27" monitors say they will work only with DVI-D Dual Layer - this Matrix Model worked perfectly with the DVI-I Dual Layer port on my Nvidia GTX 460 (DVI-D is digital only while DVI-I is digital and analog). Perfect, no dead pixels. It looks like they sell these with no glass for $299, IPS LCD and with Tempered Glass models for $10 extra which is what I prefer and got. Ordered on Monday and came by Thursday from China to Houston. They will ask you after purchase if you are ok to mark as gift for customs and customs amount and confirm shipping address after purchase, so watch for that email. Monitor is supposed to be of Korean manufacture, but I can't confirm. They also make more expensive models with DP Ports and HDMI for $419, but I think only the DVI-D and HDMI ports support the highest resolution of the monitor. Reply

    Sorry, meant to say from Korea to Houston in 3-4 days. Didn't come from Hong Kong, China. http://www.ebay.com/itm/130739999725?ssPageName=ST... Reply

    Opened my Nixeus box to find no instructions, no base and ,although the post was there, it came with no screws to attach to the monitor (and even if it did, with no base for the post it wouldn't stand up.)

    After 15 minutes of running I'm experiencing frequent jitter and blips. It's not the lamp, but appears that the video processor is buggin' out.

    To top it off, this is labelled on Comp U Plus's site as a new monitor, but there are wear signs on the post and mount points of the back of the monitor. This definitely feels like an open box product. Hope your experience is better.

    Also, I can't figure out how to get my MacBook Pro to push the resolution to the max. Looks like 1680x1050 is the max output of my notebook. I could live with this, but the display anomalies and missing hardware are enough of a warning sign to put me off this brand.

    Definitely looking to return this one.

    If you have a Macbook Pro that is 2010 or newer, you will need a mini-displayport to displayport cable (not an adapter but a real cable) and connect to the monitor's displayport = 2560x1440 resolution. Reply

    Hi pijin,

    We apologize for the issue you experienced. Please contact techsupport@nixeus.com and we will resolve your issues.

    For clarification regarding wear signs on the post and mount points - the NX-VUE27 originally had a different stand which we removed and replaced with the more higher quality stand.

    Regarding MacBook Pro for 2560x1440 resolutions, you must use a mini-displayport to displayport cable.

    Thank-you - we appreciate your comments and concerns.
