Monoprice, a leader in electronics e-commerce, announced a new line of high-end LED monitors aimed at gamers and home entertainment purists at International CES.
The first model released is the 27-inch IPS LED CrystalPro Monitor WQHD, which is priced at $390. The low cost unit provides gamers an opportunity to buy a high quality product at an affordable price, which is an overall goal for the company.
The monitor features a stunning display with a 16:9 aspect ratio and 2560 x 1440 resolution. Response time, a critical element for gamers for obvious reasons, is increased to 6 milliseconds on the unit.

In addition to the display’s impressive screen resolution, the dual-link DVI Monoprice monitor includes a tilt stand and VESA wall mount capability. Speakers come built into the monitor, which comes enclosed in a glossy black plastic case. The whole unit comes in measuring about 25.5″ x 16″ x 2.3″ and weighs only around 14 lbs.
The monitor is currently on backorder but more are expected to arrive on April 4. As usual, Monoprice backs the monitor with a full year warranty.
“With our new LED monitor displays, we have delivered a high end display product at a price point unheard of in the industry,” Monoprice Director of Marketing Luke Grant said.
Monoprice is an e-commerce website established in 2002 that offers more than 4,000 branded and non-branded products at bargain prices on their website. The company specializes in making high-quality PC, gaming and tech accessories available to consumers at affordable prices.
The Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.-based company may not yet have the reputation for producing goods but Monoprice is planning some big things that will interest both console and PC gamers in 2013.
