Who Is Nixeus Because Its Cheap 27-Inch Hi-Res Monitor Looks Awesome

You could buy Apple's gorgeous 27-inch Cinema Display but it'll cost you a grand. If you don't have that kind of paper, Nixeus is about to drop the Vue, a display of the same size, packed with 2,560 x 1,440 WQHD resolution for just $430.

"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, and it's set for an August 21 release. Specs sound promising—an LG S-IPS panel, 6ms response, 8-bit color, 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, $430 is still a lot of dough, so let's hope it's not too good to be true. [AnandTech via Engadget]
