Here's a name you haven't heard in awhile: Sceptre. The company has been making LCDs, TVs and other monitors for years now, but it has definitely been awhile since it was able to product something to take on the offerings out now from Dell, Samsung, Sharp and the rest of the gang. Making a play for business in the "my current LCD is too tiny" sector, Sceptre has introduced a new 27" high-def LCD monitor with a 60,000:1 contrast ratio and an ultra-fast 2ms response time.

The display has a Full HD (1080p, or 1920x1080) resolution, along with an Energy Star 5.0 certification, 400cd/m2 brightness, 50000 hour lamp life, built-in speakers and VGA/DVI/HDMI/Audio Input ports. Best of all, the monitor is selling for just $399, which means the 27" of your dreams is now more accesible than ever.

Although I hate built in speakers this looks like a nice monitor. Great refresh full 1080 res the price is pretty nice to although if I was going to pay that kind of money I would want it to have an 8bit panel, rather than a 6 bit or lower which I bet it is.

I agree. I don't know why anyone would buy a 27" monitor and not spend money on a decent set of speakers to go with it.

NOTE: NewEgg appears to have this monitor priced at *$329.99* -

NOTE2: NewEgg box may contain cardboard replica and notepad upon arrival.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
