    The 27” IPS LED CrystalPro Monitor WQHD cuts some corners to get its price down to less than half of other 24-inch IPS displays. But if you can do without USB, Thunderbolt, ethernet, and varied connection options, and can ignore the generic styling, the lack of onscreen menus, and the sub-par speakers, the CrystalPro’s basic on-screen performance matches that of more expensive displays.

    Pros

    • Very good overall image quality
    • Affordable
    • Glossy screen less reflective that Apple displays
    • Good text quality

    Cons

    • Has only DVI connector
    • Tinny-sounding speakers
    • Somewhat flimsy stand and some buttons are non-functional
