Who Is Nixeus? Its Cheap 27-Inch Hi-Res Monitor Looks Great

You could buy Apple’s gorgeous 27-inch Cinema Display but it’ll cost you over a grand. If you don’t have that kind of paper, a company called Nixeus is about to drop the Vue, a display of the same size, packed with 2560×1440 WQHD resolution for just $US430.

“But wait, I’ve never even heard of Nixeus,” you say. Granted, we don’t know if it’s any good, but the price certainly is. It it’s set for an August 21 release and the specs sound promising — an LG S-IPS panel, 6ms response, 8-bit colour, stereo speakers and several ports (VGA, HDMI 1.4, DVI). And, of course, all for about half the money as panels with similar features. That said, $US430 is still a lot of dough, so let’s hope it’s not too good to be true. [AnandTech via Engadget]
