LG IPS Panel in an All-Metal Case
At the heart of the display is a high performance, Grade A-1 IPS panel with LED backlight, housed in an ultra-slim bezel and glass laminate with anti-glare coating. Enjoy incredible graphics with zero backlight bleed, dead pixels, or edge focus issues. A heavy-duty stand provides a stable, solid base--but remove the base and it can be attached to virtually all standard monitor mounts using a standard 100x100 VESA mounting pattern.
Super High Resolution Graphics
The IPS panel features 109 pixels per inch and features a brightness rating of 440 cd/m2--15% brighter than most displays in this size and price range. This monitor offers a maximum resolution of 2560x1440, with a fast 6ms response time and a dynamic contrast ratio of 80,000:1. The display can produce over 1.07 billion colors using Frame Rate Control (FRC), thanks to 10 bits of greyscale individually applied to every subpixel. Connect using Dual Link DVI-D, HDMI, VGA, and DisplayPort video inputs.
A pair of 2-watt speakers are built into the panel's casing, allowing you to save space on your desk from having to find room for additional speakers. Enjoy your music, videos, or gaming audio more conveniently--with fewer wires.

Things I like:
- It's big. Granted, I've never had a monitor this large, so it *still* feels just gigantic to me, but I love it. At full resolution, there's room for two full-size, 1280px browser windows side-by-side.
- Wide viewing angle. I suppose this is pretty standard now, but I was used to monitors that look all wonky if you view them from the side.
Things I DON'T like:
- Fixed height. The stand is not height adjustable. The display does angle up and down a bit, but not easily: it's definitely not intended for people who frequently change positions and viewing angles (eg: folks with adjustable stand/sit desks).
- No webcam. There's clearly a hole behind the glass, where the plastic is cut for the webcam included in some similar model, but this model doesn't include it.
Things of note:
- If using this with a Mac, you probably want the "DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter" Apple MB571Z DisplayPort Dual Link Adapter The monitor will work with a standard DVI adapter, but to use the full 2560x1440 resolution, you need the dual-link.
At first glance those two displays seem similar: bright, sharp, and roomy in resolution. I'd say the Monoprice is a great value when you compare the two for the average consumer's needs. If what you primarily care about is viewing angle, sharpness, and the high display resolution for lots of screen real estate, you can't do better for the price. You save about $400 off the Apple display.
However, as a graphic design professional I was disappointed with the color and contrast issues this display has. Even compared to the cheap, four-year-old non-IPS Samsung 24" LCD it was replacing, the colors and contrast were lacking.
The colors and brightness shift noticeably throughout the screen based on what's happening in just one portion––drag a window around or scroll through a webpage and colors on the opposite side of the screen are shifting as the display tries to keep up.
The biggest issue is the black level though. I've spent hours tweaking color profiles and settings on the display but stuff that should be 100% black show up as a dark gray on this screen. No change in the contrast / gamma / brightness settings or color profiles seems to improve this.
I contacted Monoprice support to see if they had any calibration tips I might have missed. Although their support was always very responsive and helpful they didn't have any ideas for improving the color accuracy.
Again, the average consumer most likely wouldn't notice.Read more ›
Update*** I am still loving this monitor, I was able to overclock it from 60hz to 75hz which has helped greatly in gaming. This monitors colors are absolutely beautiful. I love using it and Im considering getting another, but I don't have the room on my desk for this monster to do a side by side lol. The ONLY gripe I have about this monitor is that it is a fingerprint magnet, so once you set it up, clean it properly "NOT WITH WINDEX" then never touch it again.
The RMA rep informed me that:
(a) they no longer offer cross-shipping - this was a change to their policy which was recently adopted owing to "some return issues" (read: the poor quality control with these units),
(b) the monitor is out of stock for a month, meaning I would be without a monitor for a lengthy period (minimum two weeks if I stretched the return policy to the limit), and most problematic that
(c) all IPS monitors suffer from light bleed. When I pointed out that the product description clearly states "That means no backlight bleed, no dead pixels, no focus issues at the edge, nothing wrong at all," the rep said that the description was "misinformed."
I was most surprised by the last. I've been a longtime customer of monoprice and I've never seen them fail to stand behind their products as described. At this point, I would not be surprised to find that they will change their warranty terms, as well. This is altogether unfortunate, but I guess I will stick to buying cables from monoprice and get my monitors elsewhere.
