    What's the color gamut of this monitor?
    A shopper on Mar 1, 2017
    Will there be a matte screen configuration for this monitor?
    A shopper on Jan 10, 2017

    Is this matte or glossy?
    Kurt C on Dec 20, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. The screen is in fact glossy, I hope this helps, and of course if you have any more questions feel free to contact us!
    Is the panel coating under the glass actually glossy or matte? Is the glass actually gapless or does it have a gap where dust can get in (like in Dell 2720 AIO which has matte LG panel under the glass)?
    New User U on Jan 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we would not have information on the finish of the panel itself. Since it has the tempered glass screen, it would be susceptible to glare. If you are looking for a truly matte finish screen this unit would not have that. The glass will be gap-less. I hope this helps.

    Can these be used with monitor desk mounts?
    A shopper on Dec 21, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes with a major but regarding the adapter. It will not mount in centerline with the monitor so if you have a different make in a dual monitor mount it will be off by like 2 inches resulting in a clunky look.
    What is this monitor's refresh rate?
    A shopper on Feb 5, 2017

    A shopper on Dec 21, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, we do indeed ship internationally! If you have further questions for specific countries please do not hesitate to contact our customer service team via live chat or phones. Thank you for your question!

    Will this meet the native resolution of a pre 5k 27" iMac? 2012 year production? I've been looking for an additional monitor and the specs on this look great!
    A shopper on Dec 20, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: This is the same resolution as the 2009-2013 27" iMac, which is 2560x1440.
    Is the stand height-adjustable and the monitor can be turned in portrait mode from landscape mode? Thanks.
    A shopper on Feb 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I've been meaning to write Monoprice a review and this question will help get me started. I purchased 2 and I've got 25 years in apple and advertising / design / motion graphics / 3d animation / effects / etc...

    The monitor is great. Solid construction. The stand cannot be turned 90 degrees. The stand has minimal tilt top and down and slight turn left and right. It stands where it stands. It's certainly mountable but I have not mounted mine. I use them straight to and I do like them. Especially for the Monoprice.

    If it works with your working environment and you need <4k I'd do it again, and again.
    Can this monitor be rotated?
    meredith a on Dec 20, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. Though this monitor does support portrait viewing mode, this monitor cannot be rotated with the included stand and will need to be mounted on a separate mount. I hope this helps, and of course if you have any more questions feel free to contact us!
    Does this monitor have built in LUT for color calibration?
    Sean D on Jan 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I do not think the monitor has built-in LUT for color calibration. There is no mention of it in the instructions. I have used a separate device hung over a monitor screen to do the calibration on other monitors I own.
    My graphics card supports 1680 X 1050. Will it at least get that resolution with this screen?
    M A K on Dec 31, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes - the monitor enumerates the following resolutions 2560x1440, 1920x1080, 1680x1050, 1440x900, 1280x1024, ... to 720x576
    Hi, I purchased two of these and neither seem to function correctly using HDMI to thunderbolt 2 for a Macbook air 2013. I plugged in a windows machine and it works instantly, but the user that requested this uses a mac. Can anyone assist? I've never encountered a monitor that discriminates between the two.
    New User U on Jun 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I bought two of these monitors for my office, both for use with Macbook Pro 15" laptops with the Thunderbolt 2 interface. I am connecting using the Thunderbolt 2 to Displayport interface, and it works fine.
    Can I use an HDMI cable to connect the monitor?
    A shopper on May 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. It has HDMI input.
    Monitor wont turn on with Lenovo Yoga 720 (7th gen i5 processor) with Insignia USB-C to HDMI adapter. Works well for dell Latitude E7470 though. Probably because HDMI port was built in.
    Is this a known issue with USB-C to HDMI adapters?
    A shopper on Apr 26, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I have a similar problem with my MacBook Pro 2016. USB-C works find normally except when rebooting (like updates, upgrades). the MP III is blank. this resulted in several reboots that corrupted my initial upgrade to OS X Sierra. Once I learned this, I unplug the USB-C from my Mac before patching. other than that, it works great.
    Is this monitor flicker (PWM) free?
    A shopper on Mar 7, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The monitor has worked well so far-no flicker in the short time I've had it.
    What version hdmi is needed to get the full resolution ?
    A shopper on Feb 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. In order to get the full resolution you will need to get an HDMI cable that supports 18Gbs such as product # 15427, I hope this helps, and of course if you have any more questions feel free to contact us!
    Does it Support HDCP, meaning can I plut the HDMI to my DirecTV or Playstation and watch Blu Rays?
    Donald P on Feb 3, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. Unfortunately not this monitor does not have HDCP support. I apologize for the inconvenience
    Okay, people said it has a VESA mount. I looked at the pic, where are the holes for that? Thank you in advance.
    Hinhlina P on Jan 26, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It's a separate item you have to buy from MP. Instead of screwing the monitor into the stand, the mounting nub has a couple of spots that bolt into the VESA mount.
    Does it have a VESA mount?
    Hinhlina P on Jan 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It has VESA capability if you buy the VESA adapter. 10 or so bucks. Sold out last I saw.
    How many of each port are there? The "Full Specs" seem rather incomplete.
    Kirk G on Dec 20, 2016

    Decent IPS monitor
    Overall, the monitor is about average (or slightly above) for being IPS with all the normal input types, but then suffers from the typical light bleed issues associated with IPS.

    The OSD controls are a little funky to mess with since all controls are handled by a D-pad where the directions aren't tied to the most intuitive functions. Switching between input sources is a little cumbersome as well as the option to switch between two active inputs (HDMI -> DP) is buried with sub menus.

    Additionally, I didn't realize how bright my older monitor was until I received this one -- Looking back at the specs, my old monitor was rated at around 400 cd/m2 whereas this one is ~250cd/m2. Not that it's dim, but just that I really need to turn down the brightness on my older monitor if I'm having these side-by-side.

    On the plus side, the monitor base is solid metal, real nice. The bezel and the body of the monitor is indeed, very slim. Works well for standard usage, photo editing, and gets by for gaming.

    Also to note, if I just had two of these paired in a dual monitor set up instead of mix and match set up, I'd probably have no complaints.

    Can't beat it for the price
    I kept looking @ monitors and just couldn't decide. Considered 4K but, most of those, the price discouraged me. Whittled down the field to some Dell, Samsung and a couple other monitors. This one beat all the others on a price basis by a large margin. All things considered, the price differential ultimately won. The biggest downside for me was the 1 year warranty rather than the most common 3 years for most others.
    Monitor started up with both MacBook Air and Windows PC effortlessly and does appropriate auto-sense for input. Excellent picture and lots more "real estate" to work with. I have 5-8 business apps going for work and the larger screen is very helpful. Documentation is a bit light and figuring out how to get to the OSD to adjust the display settings was a mystery (the on/off switch toggles left/right/up/down to control the OSD) If you are going to mount the display, make sure to order the extra adapter plate.

    So far, completely satisfied. I won't know the final answer until I've had it for 2-3 years and I haven't had any issues with it.

    Big bang for the buck
    Large display with lots of vibrance. and a very attractive price.

    The stand and case are very high quality.

    It requires a serious GPU to drive at full resolution particularly if you run them as dual monitors. My GTX 780 struggles to deliver full resolution output with one monitor on display port and the other on HDMI.

    Gorgeous display!
    I absolutely love this display! The image at 2650x1440 is clean, crisp, and no dead pixels. It's super thin, but easy to access each of the DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI ports, and the brushed aluminum frame/stand is sleek and functional. Keep in mind the height is fixed and does not swivel, so if you are looking for swivel or rotate, this is not the monitor for you. It also has no internal speakers, but that's not an issue for me as I have never found an internal display speaker that was anything but tinny. It also does not have thunderbolt or USB3, but at less than half the cost of an Apple display of the same size and resolution, this is a sweet deal!

    Pretty monitor, not very standard otherwise
    I do not recommend using with a dual monitor mount if the vesa mounts are not adjustable height wise as with the required adapter it is not mounting in centerline (about 2 inches higher than it should be) with my other monitor. I can see the non standard power supply hook up being an issue in the future as well. Wish monoprice had a good mount as I bought a new monitor mount from them for this monitor which I can not use!

    Beautiful monitor. In appearance and functionality.
    I received this monitor in exchange for another of mine that went bad. I was so impressed by the sleek look of it when I took it out of the box. I was equally as impressed with the picture quality. So much so that I ordered a second one just so I could have matching monitors. I absolutely love the picture and would recommend this monitor to anyone. In addition to this amazing monitor, the Monoprice customer support is always helpful and amazing. This is why I keep coming back.

    Amazing monitor at the price, fantastic construction, high gloss screen can cause glare
    While minor complaints may normally make me rate this unit at 4 stars, this monitor is by far one of the best options in its price range. If you're looking for a 27", 1440p, IPS panel there are no cheaper options at this same level of quality. The stand is all solid aluminum and is both sturdy and aesthetic, however adjustment options are fairly limited. The bezel is also brushed aluminum and the panel itself is very slim but the back of the panel is plastic (doesnt really matter unless you're looking at the back of your monitor for some reason. The screen itself has great colors, brightness, etc. My unit has 0 dead pixels and minimal backlight bleed (a little in the bottom corner but not noticeable during typical use). Overall a fantastic monitor for the price.

    Wow! Love this monitor. The screen has perfect clarity and the glossy surface adds a nice look. The all metal stand and enclosure is first class. I will order these as the new standard monitor for our company.

    Fantastic screen
    An absolute window into my PC. Great color, brightness and response. So far I havent had a single issue with this monitor. The thin bezel screams stack more monitors together and the brushed metal base looks great against the glass desktop. I will end up getting more of these monitors for my home office.

    I purchased this monitor never having heard of Monoprice. I was told that their expertice was with cables. I have not been disappointed with my choice. It was very easy to set up the monitor and the picture is excellent.
