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.

[adsense250itp]IPS (In-Plane Switching) technology used on the LED panel made by LG in Korea leads to vibrant colors and increased viewing performance. This is the same panel that is used in the 27-inch Apple Cinema Displays. The IPS technology produces a 178 degree viewing angle in both planes.

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.

    Do you know the input lag on the monitor?

    • 6ms, not bad. Not amazing but for a monitor of this size that’s very standard. Given the price, hard to disagree. bad news is that they are seriously backordered.
