The best thing to happen to the computer monitor marketplace has been the introduction of inexpensive QuadHD displays from South Korea. At a time when a $700 monitor was considered cheap in the United States, these were available on Ebay for around $300 and utilized the same panel, though often a lower grade one. The introduction of these displays forced mainstream vendors in the USA to introduce more affordable models, and saw other vendors introduce more affordable products as well. Now we have decent quality panels at far more affordable prices, and while not perfect they can provide a good overall value. Today we look at the QNIX QX2710 LED DPmulti True10 and see how it compares to other 27-inch displays.
