Was glorious while it lasted. Beautiful and perfect and then it died. 18 months and I am out of luck. better get the warranty if your going to buy
Worst online shopping experience EVER!!! 10/23/2014
Mark from Dallastown, PA
Received three defective units in a row, now they're trying to stick me with a refurbished one with some kind of mystery goo spilled on it! Customer service is non-existent. Just pile your money up and set it on fire, and save yourself a ton of grief.
Big Honkin' Monitor 10/15/2014
Brad from Duluth, GA
For those wanting the size and clarity of the Thunderbolt monitor, this has it for 1/3 of the price. Stellar so far!
Good Monitor 9/17/2014
Seems to be working well. Very glossy screen. I would not use in a well lit room for the reflections. Has a separate power adapter similar to a laptop. All advertised ports present and functioning
27" IPS-Glass Panel Pro LED Monitor WQHD 2560x1440 9/16/2014
Firedrake from Charlotte, NC
The product was obviously a return, because there were fingerprints all over the glass screen, and they don't clean up with standard LCD cleaner. May have to use Windex. The DVI-D connection did not offer me the 2560x1440 resolution, nor did the HDMI 1.4 connection. I finally got it by using a DisplayPort connection.
THe monitor was dead on arrival 9/11/2014
bim from Middletown, NJ
THis is a preliminary report. The monitor was DOA; there was no backlighting. I used their chat line and they were very helpful, had me do a few tests and determined that the backlighting was out. They trsnsfered me to returns and issued an RMA and I am now awaiting the shipping lable and will return it. I plan to heve a replacement sent and then will give my final report. I am 5* satisfied with their customer service.
Great monitor 9/6/2014
Monoprice is great as always. This is just a typical Korean monitor, but Monoprice goes through additional quality checks. No bad pixels, worked great the first time, looks excellent.
Really nice looking monitor 9/3/2014
I have bought two of these and so far they are both working great and I haven't found any issues.
Monitor was DOA 8/27/2014
Joseph from St. Charles, MO
Cannot get RMA from Rakuten and my order is not listed on monoprice.com.
If it does not work, you are stuck with the credit card complaint
Great Monitor -- Excellent quality 8/25/2014
Robyn from Gainesville, FL
This monitor appears to be of EXCELLENT quality. The picture is super bright and clear, especially when paired with a digital connection such as Displayport/mini-DP. The reviews about the base being flimsy... it's no worse than ANY other moderate priced monitors (i have 2 others from Westinghouse and Samsung and this is NO worse) -- I am totally happy. I am using this with my 15" Apple MBP retina over a mini-DP to displayport cable and couldn't be happier so far! May buy another...
Monoprice IPS 27" Monitor 8/13/2014
ZERO dead/stuck pixels.
Quick delivery. Pretty good monitor. 8/11/2014
BarryB from Reston, Va
On my system, monitor does not have the same flexibility as my previous monitor. Resolution is fixed at standard levels. This is not a problem for me, since I don't do anything special with the video, but may effect gamers.
Came used - poor customer service 8/7/2014
I was sent a used monitor.
After calling the company, (answering machines only for customer service referring you back to the website) and trying their live chatting, I was only referred to making an email request for an RMA since it was purchased through Rakuten. - I assume I'll have to pay the shipping to send it back.
DO NOT RISK THE PURCHASE!
Great products! 8/7/2014
Mike from KC, MO
I'm so impressed with the value. The quality is great, and I can't beat the price.
Never looking back! 8/5/2014
A.I. from Chapel Hill, NC
This is an impressive monitor. It cam well packaged (box inside another box). Includes DVI and VGA cables. Only complaint is the OCD menu, it s a bit cumbersome.
Great value as promised 8/5/2014
John from Greenville, SC
Display works great and has a wide range of inputs. DVI-D cable was included as a nice surprise. Display works great with HD6450 video card and a secondary monitor as well. The styling is not as thin or trendy as some of the other Monoprice packages, but the additional input types and built in speakers are the selling point.
Just what I wanted 7/3/2014
Bob from Ooltewah, Tennessee
Pros: The monitor has worked flawlessly and I would recommend the monitor to anyone. The brightness and clarity are great. Cons: The Dual DVI cable is a little short (5 feet) and would be better at 6 feet.
Poor quality- Power button stuck 7/2/2014
Just returned monitor for the second time. Both monitors had same defect. Power button was stuck in. Monitor would not start when plugged. Seems like they don't do any QA inspection before shipping.
Great Screen for a Low price 7/2/2014
Randy from Bellevue, WA
These are great, high contrast screens that connect to just about any connector.
High end monitor, very reasonable price 6/24/2014
Dale from Carrollton, Texas
Fantastic deal. Very sharp, color accurate, no light bleed, base is sturdy enough for my setup. Use it mainly for gaming and it was a significant upgrade over my previouse 25" LCD monitor. Highly recommend.
Great LCD panel, mediocre monitor 6/16/2014
paul from atlanta, ga
The IPS LCD panel is super-bright and crystal-clear, with zero dead pixels, excellent (for an LCD) color reproduction and very wide viewing angle (both horizontal and vertical). The monitor itself it just meh - the bezel is 1"+ thick all around, the stand does not have height adjustment or portrait orientation, the controls are very basic and awkward to reach, no built-in USB hub. The 3.5mm audio jack on my monitor was damaged from the factory - luckily, it also takes audio over HDMI and DP.
Thank You !!! 6/5/2014
Todd from Jackson, MI
What a difference a good moniter makes. It makes computer time more enjoyable. Quick and good service !

awesome monitor 6/1/2014
regret all other monitor purchases after getting this last. crossover 2560x1440 i got looks just as good i guess but the frame is flimsy (strip at bottom kinda hangs off on both ends) and only supports DVI. monoprice monitor look very professional and sturdy
World Class Picture at Bargain-Bin Prices 5/29/2014
Nick from Portland, OR
This monitor is amazing. The picture is gorgeous. The front glass-covered bezel is stylish. The connection options are varied. I don't think there is a better option on the market. The only problems (and they are small) are the tinny, AM-radio-sounding speakers (might as well not use them at all) and the flimsy stand (I use a VESA monitor arm, so non-issue for me). But if you can get past the (very) minor flaw, this is an AMAZING monitor.
Large High Resolution Monitor at Great Price 5/20/2014
Large, 27", High Resolution, 2560x1440, Monitor at Great Price. On sale is terrific for a DisplayPort monitor of such high resolution and size.
2nd hi res monitor for mac 5/19/2014
It is great having two 27" hi res monitors running off the macpro
Gorgeous WQHD IPS monitor 5/14/2014
Scott L. Halsted from Portland, Oregon
Purchased to replace an aging 1920x1200 MVA monitor; this thing is frigging gorgeous. Sharp, not much bleed, no dead pixels, both DVI-D & HDMI inputs yield superior results. Won't comment on the audio or analog video - haven't used either; but for simple digital feeds, this is about as good as it gets.
Great for the price 5/10/2014
This is a great monitor at a reasonable price.
Defective monitor within first week of use 5/7/2014
Emailed Monoprice dozen of times, called them also. Not very responsive and customer service is lacking. Haven't heard a response from them for days. I need it replaced. My monitor just stopped working after using it within a week. I just need a replacement but Monoprice hasn't responded.
Excellent monitor! 5/7/2014
This monitor is incredible. No dead pixels, great color, currently using all four inputs - 2 Macs, 2 Linux boxes. Alternate one of the Linux boxes with a Raspberry PI, since I can use one headless most of the time. The anti-glare coating is very nice. This was an excellent deal for the money. Really like my still perfect Dell FPW2405, but this Monoprice monitor is fantastic. Highly, highly recommend it. Addition of a USB port would be icing on the cake.
Great value 4/29/2014
Monitor looks great, has a nice finish to it, plenty of connections and good build quality. Docked 1 point off performance because of slight light bleed when on a black screen (not noticeable otherwise) and the stand is a little crude but is sturdy enough and gets the job done.
DOA - Let's see if replacement process is fast 4/23/2014
DOA - Power button is somewhat sank-in and won't turn on. Poor QA but atleast they are trying. Gave +1 star just for fast shipping.
Great Monitor and Price 4/10/2014
Seraph Films from N Hollywood, CA
The quality of this monitor is roughly equivalent to the Apple Cinema Display at less than half the cost. We're using it on a two display system and, despite purchasing the monitors many months apart, the quality between the two remains consistent. Couldn't be happier.
Best value for 27 inch 2560x1440 monitor 4/7/2014
sgunes from DFW/Texas
I was very positively surprised by the picture quality of the monitor. Well packaged and a breeze to set up as long as you use the included dual-link DVI cable. Comparable quality to my 27 inch iMac and 30 inch Dell monitors.
What a wonderful product. 4/7/2014
Glenn from Medford, Oregon
Received in a timely fashion and at a great price. The osd menu in somewhat difficult to understand but the monitor preformed flawlessly. Unfortunately the glass screen cover has considerable glare. Not suitable for a location with a lot of windows behind and to the side. I gave it a 4 on overall satisfaction only because of the glare.
4K Monitor 4/1/2014
Cliff from Maine
Just set up may new monitor. Set up was easy and only took ten minutes from the time UPS dropped off the box. This resolution is wonderful. No dead pixels and all the extra screen space makes work so much easier. Wonder why I did not do this before. Overall satisfaction would have been 5 but it did not come with the audio cable listed on the package list, but since I connected the monitor with the HDMI it did not matter.
I might have to buy one of these for myself. My son got this one for his gaming computer. I do some photo editing and this would be really nice. The color looks great and it is incredibly sharp.
Great Monitor 3/31/2014
Carlos from New York, NY
This monitor is awesome, just be sure to use dual link DVI or HDMI in order to take advantage of the higher resolution.
Gre3at monittor 3/31/2014
Joe H from Chicago IL
Outstanding performing monitor everything was as advertised.
So far so good! 3/28/2014
Vanna from Portland, OR
The quality of the monitor display is outstanding, and for the price, it's unparalleled. A lot of people claim the monitor is wobbly, which I can understand why they would say that, but unless you live on a fault line I don't think you'll have too much trouble with the monitor moving around.
Probably, my biggest complaint would be the controls for the monitor. They are kinda awkward and difficult to use. However, once you find the right monitor settings, you'll never have to touch these controls again =)
Hopefully the monitor continues to be fantastic... I will certainly post an update if not!
Crystal clear display 2/19/2014
I picked this monitor up during a holiday sale when the price was just insanely low and for the price I don't think this display can be beat! Not a single dead/stuck pixel and the screen is gorgeous and crystal clear. It arrived packed very securely as well which was nice.
If I had to come up with any complaints, its that the front panel controls are a pain to navigate, but that's more of a set it once and forget it thing, and in no way detracts from the monitor in my mind.
Great monitor! 1/22/2014
Great monitor for the price paid! Totally worth the money.
Great monitor 11/7/2013
Lawprof from Spokane, Washington
This was the first time I saw a PC monitor bigger than 1920x1080 for a reasonable price. I paid $400 and thought it was well worth it.
27" Hi Res Monitor Worth Every Penny 11/7/2013
RemyJ from Branford, CT
The Monoprice 27" Hi Res Monitor was worth every penny. Great build quality, no dead pixels, and man is this thing bright. I turned the brightness down to 50% and got it set up just as I wanted. The stand was nice in that you can tilt the monitor forward or back to make viewing at the right angle easy. You will not be disappointed if you buy one of these..

Great monitor 11/7/2013
My old HDMI cable did not allow to go to the optimum resolution but once I've connected the provided DVI cable I was able to switch to the 2560 x 1440 resolution. Exceptional image quality. Very happy with this purchase.
Great performing monitor 8/20/2013
As described, great product. At first I thought there was a problem. I used my existing DVI cable and the monitor didn't work. I was using a single link DVI, switched to the dual link DVI cable supplied and it worked like a super star!

Wow ! 8/20/2013
Robert from Houston TX
2560x1440 has to be seen to be believed. Huge sheet of glass.
DVI & HDMI wouldn't go to full res (vid card?), but SVGA cranked fine.
External PS brick (I prefer, not for everyone).
Good monitor especially for the right applications 8/15/2013
Twinclouds from San Diego, CA
I received the monitor from Monoprice second day after ordered it. Even though I lived in SoCal, it was really fast! As Monoprice promised, there's no any defects that I can observe.
It is a good monitor at a good price. It should be a great buy if you need larger area and denser pixels. On the other hand, for regular office applications especially for somebody need larger fonts, I don't think it is much better than a good 1920x1200 monitor.
