WQHD displays are becoming increasingly common in laptops, and even phones and tablets. But it’s hard to find a desktop monitor with a 2560 x 1440 pixel or higher resolution display that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
So I was a bit surprised to stumble across two great deals on 27 inch WQHD monitors today, with prices starting at $289 for a new QNIX QX2710 or $350 for a refurbished HP model.
While QNIX might not be a household name in the US, this particular monitor normally sells for $338 and gets pretty stellar reviews at Amazon.
Here are some of the day’s best deals.

Better to show some patience and restraint against compulsive purchases and wait for the UHD 4k 4096 x 2160 monitors to become plentiful and competitively priced.
This resolution is a half way house and is reminiscent of those white elephant 1368×768 displays which were so prevalent before fully HD 1920×1080 became standard issue.
There’s an awful lot of 27″ monitors with these panels out there, unfortunately you’d have to be looking to find out about them in the first place. South korea is absolutely pumping them out with all kinds of neat features, and when for instance dell charge twice as much there’s just no competition even if warranties are harder to claim and the builds aren’t as good.
