A few days ago I came across this article about a cheap Korean IPS monitor that is super cheap. So I bought it.
It arrived, and I greedily opened up the packaging and plugged everything in. The light turned on, but nothing. The backlight is on but the screen remained black. I thought I got tricked.
Then I called my korean friend and he looked at korean forums. Turns out I needed a dual link DVI converter. Bought it from amazon and now the monitor works beautifully.
The monitor is beautiful. It’s not glossy, so it makes me love it even more.
Total cost: $457.00
