Quixun QHD-M30W 30-Incher: Look Out Dell and Apple

Suddenly Dell and Apple don't have a lock on the huge honking LCD display market any more, because now Japanese company Quixun introduces the QHD-M30W, a 30-incher that matches the resolution of the Apple and Dell 30-inch monitors at 2560x1600.

Just like its competitors, the M30W has a dual-link DVI-D connector, requiring an industrial-strength graphics card to handle its zillions of pixels. Price will be $1728, undercutting Dell's monitor ($2199) by $471 and Apple's ($2499) by $771. There's no word yet on availability in the US, but even if it's not on sale anytime soon, this announcement is bound to put pricing pressure on Dell and Apple.
