Monoprice started out as a cable company, selling HDMI cables much cheaper than everyone else. The quality was the same. They hope to do the same with high-end monitors challenging the likes of Dell with IPS monitors that carry a 50-70 % lower price tag.
Monoprice to start selling monitors
If you know a thing or two about the digital world you probably also know of the greatest scam of them all; extremely expensive digital cables such as HDMI cables. Companies such as Monster continue to scam buyers; some unknowing; some stuck in the analog time where cable quality mattered. A digital cable is digital, which means that you either get a correct or wrong signal. No in-between.
Monoprice will start selling this 27-inch IPS monitor in March for under $400
Monoprice has been selling dirt-cheap digital cables for some years now and the HDMI cable business has been thriving, to say at least. The cables are just as good as any other – but much cheaper.
After some Korean companies started selling extremely cheap IPS based monitors that could compare with for example Dellâ€™s Ultrasharp monitors, Monoprice saw an opportunity to move into actual consumer electronics, too. And at CES 2013 they exhibited their first 27-inch â€śhigh-endâ€ť IPS monitor that is priced at under $400 but specced to compete with $1000 monitors.
Monoprice hopes to make a splash when the monitors start arriving in USA in March. Would you consider the 27-inch Monoprice monitor?
