    I-O Data has just announced a new addition to its monitor offer, a 27-inch model called LCD-MF271CGBR which features an IPS panel capable of a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. I-O Data's display also has an 8.6 ms response time, a contrast ratio of 1,000:1, a maximum brightness of 420 cd/m2, D-Sub, DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort connectors, and two 2 W built-in speakers.

    The LCD-MF271CGBR will ship at the end of this month.

    Prices would be good, I can't wait till I can afford a monitor like this. Having the same 1920X1200 monitor for 7 years is getting tiresome. :/

    nah they will milk it before it ever hits 350 stateside on a wide scale. personally, im happy with my 1080p for the time being. 1440p was nice and all, but im glad i sold it when i had the chance and got back more then what i paid for it. its pretty and all, but i dunno, i like the grittiness of 1080p as well. just like when i play FFX on my old tube tv, i love how it looks. all depends.

    We need guaranteed 120Hz input on these things too.

    I couldn't care less about that stuff, I just want the pixels. :(

    Too bad about the price. I still say they're coming 2013.

    I would hope that pricing isn’t accurate. For that kind of coin I would just buy the HP ZR2740w 27" at ~$680 or the ASUS PB278Q 27" for $700. Better yet I would just buy another Auria EQ276W 27" 2560x1440 IPS display for ~$400. Something like this I-O Data model should be in that same $400 range IMO.

    I would reckon it is coming either next year, but perhaps more likely the year after on a broad scope. Curious if anyone else agrees with my chicken/egg correlative thinking. That is to say, the average decent PC display costs about the same as a graphics adapter to drive it (currently excluding 4k obviously) in contemporary gaming.

    Currently the graphics card market is divided more-or-less like so:

    ~4k or a tri-1080p setup ~60fps (sli/cf)
    2560 ~60fps (high-end gpu)
    1080p ~60fps (midrange gpu)

    On down, obviously...but they are increasingly irrelevant.

    Obviously 30fps/60fps are some-what arbitrary, but it makes sense to lay it out like that, especially if you factor in 3D/120hz etc requiring roughly double the horsepower.

    With the next generation on the same process, that will probably be more-or-less solidified (60fps at those resolutions).

    Come 20nm, each market will probably drop a notch (and conceivably a limited one above the former could be born) With it, the market for those displays grows. Yadda yadda economics trickle-down magic. (In a broad sense beyond Chinese ebay specials) 2560x14/16 becomes more mainstream, 2560 120hz becomes obtainable, and 4k starts poking it's head in the door. If 2560 or 1080p120 does not catch on in a broad sense, and 1080p->4k becomes the defacto progression, this is why we see the 128-bit gpu die. CPUs will handle 1080p by 14nm, a decent gpu (or high-bandwidth) is needed for 4k, and the middle-ground is a weird niche that may, in the grand scheme of things, be passed over and consolidated.

    If people are saying 2013 may be the year for cheaper 2560x1440 27” displays they might be right. Although these things can be difficult to predict. Everyone wants to see this but its also important to me to be able to have choices at a relatively low price from name brand manufactures with a good warranty.

    The Nixeus NX-VUE27 is a 2560x1440 IPS LED display that would presumably hit the market at ~$430. Unfortunately the price spiked to ~$500 likely due to anticipated supply and demand or some other factors. The Nixeus NX-VUE27 seems to be no different then the Auria EQ276W 2560x1440 IPS LED display other then the included monitor stand (which has height adjust and rotation) but the Auria EQ276W goes for ~$399.99 at Microcenter.

    The reason this is interesting to me is that for the most part these are virtually identical products but the Microcenter Auria EQ276W price remains static at ~$399.99 (assuming you can find stock) while the Nixeus NX-VUE27 spikes to ~$500.

    So I guess what I am trying to say is that even if there was an announced 27” 2560x1440 IPS monitor with a sweet spot price one of the problems with it right away would be that everyone would want it. Then supply and demand would kick in and the street price would jump over the manufacturer suggested retail price. The elevated price would probably stay that way for a while or the product simply wouldn’t be available for long stretches of time.

    For what its worth I can attest to the Auria EQ276W being a really excellent monitor for the price. Well actually in general not just for the price. It has its quirks though and I would much rather have a name brand but I like my unit enough to think about buying another one.

    DL-DVI & DP can handle that refresh rate IIRC. Blame the HDMI interface. :eek:

    In my case, I think it is just wishfull thinking. I am not paying more than $400 for a monitor. $350 seems very doable for 1440p. I am not that interested in 120hz.

    I really hate when a company does a press release and then doesn't give a price, there's little that's more frustrating.

    They probably do it to gauge tech forum intersts. By looking at this board. a marketer would say ~$500 looks good.

    The interface is not what I am getting at - the panel/control circuits also need to support it.

    My current Dell has DP but does not support 120Hz for example.

    I hope he is stupid and goes $350.
