Here's a name you haven't heard in awhile: Sceptre.

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.
