- 27" 1920x1080
- IPS screen (matte)
- 2x HDMI 1.4b
- 1x Displayport 1.2a
I got one earlier this month for $180 and was largely satisfied. No dead/stuck pixels. Bless Costco's price protection
- Mini-joystick for settings navigation. Clicking is loud.
- Brightness can go really low, enough for usage in a dark room.
- Wide, pointy base
- No built-in speakers
- Wake from sleep feels kinda slow, a few seconds.
- USB-C video from my laptop and phone, using an HDMI adapter, does not work. It works on other monitors. Not sure if I'm missing a setting somewhere that's interfering with it.
