    Good image-quality results, no ISP of any sort and a single displayport input... Exactly what big screens should be (IMO): All screen, no features I'll never use (I really don't need more than 1 input on a desktop screen). Reply

    I mean yes, there are use cases where you do need the ISP and multiple inputs but a vast majority of people don't touch the monitor controls after the initial setup so those things go pretty much unused anyways.

    Damn, those are some really horrible product images. Vignetting, unsharp, terrible lighting, barrel distortion... With such a terrible article opening I'm not even interested in reading the rest of the article. Reply

    You know, as a photography fan, I try not to be picky about articles but damn you are right, this is extremely bad photography! Reply

    It is not great. I would have really appreciated something better. But let's not be too harsh. Reply

    With which Android phone were these photos taken? Reply
  • abhaxus - Tuesday, December 24, 2013 - link

    Don't think the Sony NEX-6 is an android phone. Attempt at troll failed. Reply

    Yes, my main photography location has been overrun by wrapped presents at this point, so I had to choose somewhere else. I also just switched my camera from JPEG to RAW (NEX-6 with 16-50 lens) and by the time I noticed the lack of any lens correction with RAW, the originals were deleted. I've added Lightroom and Photoshop since then, as well as a prime lens, and so I'll retake these images when I get a chance to avoid them distracting. Reply

    haahah only because you got a great camera I forgive you (I love my NEX-6) and indeed when I looked at it quickly thought of my RAW images before DXO 9 since that lens requires heavy correction indeed. :) Reply

    I like his reasoning, because "location ahs been overrun with wrapped presents". Happy Holidays! Reply

    Is that a crackerjack in the background? Maybe vacuum before the next floor based photo shoot. Reply

    It looks like a sprinkle from a cupcake or donut is over in the corner too. Maybe the monitor doesn't work unless there are a few snack leftovers on the ground nearby.

    Additionally, the bottom of the window casing could use some paint, but I'm not actually complaining; my floors are dirtier.

    The joy of kids. Clean the floors every day, something new appears from them. I'd fix the window if I owned the house, but it's a rental. Reply

    That's why my floors are dirtier. Reply

    How is the Refresh Rate and overclockability? The main reason people were importing these 27 inch monitors from South Korea was that the refresh rates weren't locked and would usually overclock 95hz+ no problem. Reply
  • blackoctagon - Tuesday, December 24, 2013 - link

    (real) overclocks in the range you cite have only ever been possible on (certain) models that have DL-DVI only, not DisplayPort Reply
  • YazX_ - Monday, December 23, 2013 - link

    mmmm, no thx, Qnix and X-Star are better. i'm happy with my Qnix although no OSD and two DVI ports, but why would i need more than that, and lack of OSD is not that painful, you can manage fine without OSD Reply
  • cheinonen - Monday, December 23, 2013 - link

    The VUE27D is specifically aimed at people that need DisplayPort and not DVI. Reply

    Chris, you mention this monitor not having tilt, yet in picture 3, it shows a joint that seems like it should be able to tilt? I am hoping for some clarification on this, as it seems strange for a monitor to not have a tilt function. Reply
  • cheinonen - Monday, December 23, 2013 - link

    That joint looks like it should tilt, but I just went and tested again and it does not tilt. The specs say tilt, which means perhaps mine is too tight as shipped, but I cannot get it to tilt when I try. I'll update the text to reflect this. Reply
  • DiHydro - Monday, December 23, 2013 - link

    Could you also update the spec chart? I also see that on the manufacturer spec page for the monitor it says tilt. Reply

    Chris, can you comment if this model has PWM dimming?
    Thanks!

    I have no problem with the product images. They show what I want to know about the product (the physical features).

    Perfectly rendered professional product images lend no more credence to a monitor than crappy images. I'm here to read a review, not look at gorgeous photos of a cheap monitor.

    Thanks for the review, Chris.

    Lack of attention to detail in the photography suggests a lack of attention where things matter (ie the meat of the article.) Meticulous attention to detail produces a professional grade appearance, which enhances the inherent trust of credibility the reader has in the author. This is why people don't go to (white collar) job interviews with sweatpants and T-shirts with pizza stains on them. The OP said it perfectly. Reply

    Chris,
    Can you please please please request review samples for some faster monitors? I enjoy reading monitor reviews and I get they you probably like photography and care about color accuracy and viewing angles. I don't. It would be great if you could add the ASUS VG248QE (with or without g-sync), the Eizo Foris FG2421 and the BenQ XL2420Z to your lag database. For gamers who play things like Quake Live, Streetfighter or Couterstrike, 20+ ms lag just doesn't cut it.

    what's up with these ugly ips monitor reviews lately? Reply
  • ZeDestructor - Tuesday, December 24, 2013 - link

    Demand. Lots of people want to know how the cheap Korean Catleap/Yamasaki/QNix etc perform. In this case, its particularly interesting to see a no-ISP, DisplayPort-only screen go through the test and give excellent results. Reply
  • SunLord - Tuesday, December 24, 2013 - link

    Are there any good looking monitor outside of maybe apple if you like white anyways?
    They make a slightly better and more use able version of this monitor the Nixeus Vue NX-VUE27 and it looks to be the same screen for it's only $50 more on newegg plus you get dvi and hdmi

    I would love to see a review of those $300 ebay brands like X-Star/Qnix Reply
  • ZeDestructor - Tuesday, December 24, 2013 - link

    This is such a review. The $300 monitors have all risen in price over the past year or so... Reply
  • blackoctagon - Tuesday, December 24, 2013 - link

    The QNIX QX2710 Evolution II can still be had for USD307... Reply
  • pierrot - Wednesday, December 25, 2013 - link

    Theyre still $300 - some versions even less (tempered glass) Reply

    Ther review does not have information about overclocking ability, whter this monitor can do 2560x1440p above 60hz or not. Most low cost 27" from korea can do more than 100hz @1440p and that information is relevant for the readers of this site. Reply
