Over the last four years, Nixeus has launched a number of products focused on the gaming market. While the initial focus was on high-resolution monitors, they have now started to include gaming keyboards (mechanical) and mice in their portfolio. In addition, they have also been at the forefront in supporting AMD's FreeSync variable refresh rate technology in their monitors. Last month, they introduced a 'Pro' version of their 27" WQHD (2560x1440) IPS monitor.

The new monitor will be sold under the NX-VUE27P model name, with the 'P' indicating that the professional market is being targeted. The 2560x1440 monitor supports 100% sRGB color gamut, while also claiming AdobeRGB support. Except for the latter aspect, the display of the Nixeus PRO Vue 27″ AH-IPS 2560×1440 Mac/PC monitor is identical to the Nixeus VUE27D that we reviewed back in late 2013. Given the review link, I will not go into the details of the brightness, contrast ratio, response time etc of the NX-VUE27P.

Unlike many of the vendors that we talk to, Nixeus is quite transparent about the hardware choices they made while designing the product. The panel model and the scaler can be easily found by anyone with access to the hardware, but, Nixeus saved us the trouble and indicated that the NX-VUE27P uses the same panel as that of the NX-VUE27D, the LG LM270WQ1-SDF1. While the NX-VUE27D had only a DisplayPort input (enabled via a MStar scaler), the NX-VUE27P adopts a more recent Novatek scaler that enables additional features - multiple display inputs (DL-DVI-D, DP 1.2, HDMI and VGA), and a mode that can activate the 8-bit + A-FRC feature of the panel ('10-bit' mode). This '10-bit' mode allows Nixeus to add an additional OSD option for AdobeRGB color gamut. Despite this option, the panel capabilities dictate that only around 78% of the AdobeRGB color gamut can be covered by the monitor.

The NX-VUE27P also has in-built stereo speakers and a 3.5mm audio jack (for use with VGA and DVI connections). The MSRP is $400, but the current street price seems to be around $390. The monitor carries a 2-year warranty.

    I own a Qnix brand monitor, WQHD, overclockabled (110Hz for me). and about the cheapest price you can imagine, from a South Korean retailer via Ebay. Totally happy with it, until we have FreeSync 100Hz IPS/VA 1440p monitors. Aren't they kinda similar to these Nixeus? If so, I don't see the appeal unless they are super cheap or overclockable. Which this one doesn't seem to be, unless 390USD is cheap. If you need 10 bit, you want full 10bit. And 1440p IPS displays can be had for about 300 - 350€ (Germany), which should translate to as much USD in most cases. Weird monitor, especially for an Anandtech mention. :D Reply

    Agreed. My Qnix is @ 96Hz no probs and cost £100 less than this more than 3 years ago (I think)... Reply

    Hey! Do you mind telling me which vendor you bought it from on eBay? I would love to check it out. Reply

    Also got Qnix 27'' PLS, bought it from Ebay 3 years ago. Got it for €350 or something. Still going strong. It has matt screen not glossy as Nixeus one.

    They still have them on Ebay under €200 wow. Make sure you go for Pixel Perfect option.

    This new Nixeus at $390 is a rip off. Why pay more for just another noname?

    Do guys have any idea why QNIX says their 27" QHD monitor isn't compatible with Macs? I've used a BenQ QHD panel with my 27" iMac in the past at 2560x1440 with no issues. Reply

    Maybe because of connectors. Mine has only one which is Dual DVI. If your Mac has it or you can buy reduction to whatever you have there is no reason why it should not work. Reply

    Fake 10 bit monitors are worthless, just like fake 8-bit monitors are worthless. Reply
