Hardware unboxed is generally one of better tech channels on Youtube, if you've ever watched Linus Tech Tips you'll probably have been recommended either Gamer's Nexus (another good channel) and Hardware Unboxed.
For those that don't have enough time to watch the video, the summary is:
Positives: Low price, good VA response time, ~125% SRGB, good contrast ratio and decent colour reproduction. Also known to be using a Samsung ltm340yp03
Negatives: Crappy monitor stand with poor build quality. Sits too low on the desk with no height adjustment. Poor cable management. OSD Menu is navigated using buttons rather than a joystick.
The monitor is pretty cheap when on sale - going for less than $600 according to deal posts but usually priced at $650.
Alternatives to the Kogan is the Samsung LC34F791, also 100hz with VA panel, which normally goes for $899 but when on sale it goes for $750. It also has a much nicer stand, and has some built in (though wimpy) speakers.
And for those who are rolling in cash, the Acer Predator X34p goes for a little under $1100 on a good day and it's a 120hz IPS display. It's arch nemesis is the Alienware AW3418DW, though I'm not sure most people can afford it's $2000 price tag.
What's your thought on the best bang for your buck big-screen WQHD monitor?
