Thread Details

Got this monitor tonight at Costco and love it.

S27B350H is the model. Item number is: 657427.

Original price is $269.99 - $40 Mfr Instant Rebate = $230
I got it for about $241 with tax.

Specs: 1920x1080 Resolution, HDMI & VGA Inputs, 1000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio, Tilt Stand

Newegg's got the same one (but in transparent red) for $300 + $40 newegg GC here in comparison. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6824001551

It's also on the costco website, but not for the same price.

The only review that's on the costco site mentions that it's super light...but that's how LED monitors are.....so Dontknow.

How does it compare to any of the IPS or VA panel monitors you have?

I'd rather get a 23" IPS panel LCD for this price , I don't know about the rest of you.

^^ Dont even compare this with IPS screens. 27 Inch and 1920X 1080p is not a great thing to have.
We are having same resolution for 21.5inch these days.

I looked at this when it was $269 but went with the 'Acer - 27" Widescreen Flat-Panel LED HD Monitor' that Best Buy had on sale for about the same price. I went with the Acer because it comes with a 3 year warranty and HDMI, VGA, -and- DVI. I thought the picture was about the same on both. I think they are both pretty good for the price.

...you fail to mention that it all depends on the user. This is a solid monitor for the specs. Not everyone needs an expensive IPS monitor.

Paying $200+ dollars for any TN panel ( except 3D) seems like a rip off.

Eh. Up close (which is how computer monitors are used) this won't be too pretty. Pixel density is just gonna be bad at that size. You are gonna have to move the monitor back, which then begs the question, if you are gonna move it back, why not just buy a slightly smaller monitor for a less money and use it at normal viewing distance.

How close do you plan on sitting to a 27" monitor? If you're only a foot or so away, you probably shouldn't be getting one this size anyway lol

I agree with nJoy. If you NEED a 27 inch monitor, you would be needing it for the screen real estate. Otherwise, it's a waste of space with the resolution it offers.

If you are a gamer there is something to having a slightly larger screen. I use a 30" monitor and only sit a couple of feet away. Everyone has a preference.

This is a bigger brother of 24" which was 139.99 and posted here with little love. I have that and I will prefer that with half the investment. I had 27" Planar from Dell deal which I had to sell because it was too big. The back of these monitors is not flat.
