At a Glance

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.

Price when rated: $391.00
Lowest price: $526.00 via Amazon.com Marketplace


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


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