Monoprice 27″ IPS-G Pro LED Monitor WQHD 2560×1440

Monoprice is among the more interesting companies you probably haven’t heard of. Started out of an apartment around a decade ago, the company initially sold everything at a single price, hence the name. That business model may have worked when the product line was mostly cables and connectors, but the company now offers a diverse array that includes monitors (more in a moment), home theatre screens, graphics tablets, headphones, apocket-size pico projector, an action cam, even electric guitars – and, yes, cables, connectors and accessories as well. It’s a lineup with no seeming rhyme or reason, other than quality products at bargain prices.

And that actually is the rhyme and reason behind Monoprice products. According to CEO Ajay Kumar, the company looks for categories where vastly overpriced products predominate. That gives Monoprice room to create and sell products at dramatically lower price points, while still maintaining strong profit margins.
“We are in the right place at the right time with our business model,” says Kumar, who joined the company in July 2011. “We offer the same cable or accessory as national retail brands, but for much less cost. However, we are not cutting corners as we employ high-quality manufacturing partners who work with our specs. Our markup is much lower and we pass those savings to our customers. Monoprice brings them a value proposition they can’t find anywhere else.”
And that leads us to the Monoprice 27″ IPS-G Pro LED Monitor WQHD 2560×1440 Product ID 10489, which is what you came here for. I’ve been rocking this 16:9 (widescreen) monitor for over a month now and it’s stunning. Let’s take a look at the stats and find out why.
Start with the size, 27″. You don’t have to join Grindr to know that size matters. A larger screen means that you can work easily with more windows at once. It makes copying files and editing text and spreadsheets easier and obviously makes working with pictures and video more convenient, if that’s your thing. And if you’re a gamer, a large screen is essential. Ditto if you are, for instance, a daytrader or a designer.
Hand in glove with size is resolution. “WQHD” may sound like a Minneapolis TV station, but it means 2560 x 1440 pixels. Some 27″ screens max out at regular Full HD, which is 1920 x 1080. The higher resolution of the Monoprice unit means that more detail is visible, if your PC’s graphics card supports it. If not, you’ll be limited to 1920 x 1080 (or less, if your PC is really old). A large screen with high resolution allows you to display more information. It makes it easier to do more with your PC.
Since we’re talking graphics cards, another nice feature of the Monoprice 10489 is that it supports four different types of interface: HDMI 1.4, DVI, VGA and DisplayPort 1.2. That means that the monitor is bound to work with your existing graphics card. The package includes VGA and DVI-D cables, but these are standard length (around 6′). Because of the size of the monitor, it’s much easier to use longer cables – you can plug in the cable before maneuvering the monitor into place on your desk. Monoprice has you covered with available 15′ HDMI, DVI-D, VGA and DisplayPort 1.2 cables. Choose the one you need.
The monitor uses LEDs for the backlighting, rather than cold cathode fluorescent tubes. The benefit: more even illumination. And it uses In Plane Switching (IPS) display technology, which means you get a wide viewing angle with no color shift even when the screen is viewed at an extreme angle. Viewing angle is stated as 178 degree in both the horizontal and vertical planes.
Covering that screen is a glossy glass laminate with an antiglare coating. The antiglare coating is not a matte finish; the screen is glossy, but the antiglare coating reduces the intensity of any glare from reflected light. As with any monitor, you’ll want to position it so that ambient light is not reflected directly back at you. I’ve found the screen easy to use.
The monitor comes with a removable stand and has a 100×100 VESA mounting size for use with desk or wall mounts. The stand (which is completely removable) has rotate and tilt adjustments. It doesn’t have height adjustment, a feature found on a small number of other monitors.
The bezel is black plastic and is relatively thick. The OSD controls (brightness, etc.) are easy to reach. The connectors are in the usual awkward place for monitors, along the bottom bezel.
Several other stats are key. One is dead pixels. The monitor has over 10 million subpixels (2560 x 1440 pixels x 3 colors per pixel). If any one of those subpixels is stuck in the on or off position, you get a dead pixel – a spot that is always dark, or always white, red, reddish, green, greenish, etc. Unfortunately, dead pixels are a potential fact of life on all monitors – but Monoprice tells me they offer a zero dead pixel guarantee for a year. It’s an unusually strong guarantee, since other manufacturers often will only guarantee that the dead pixel count won’t exceed 5 or 10. The unit I received had no dead pixels.
Also important are brightness and contrast. Monoprice advertises a brightness rating of 440 cd/m², which it says is more than 15% brighter than most comparable displays, and a maximum dynamic contrast ratio of 80,000:1.
The display is indeed bright, but this is the one area where I noted a difficulty with this product – the screen is a bit too bright, even with the brightness adjustment turned down to the lowest setting. As a result, black areas on screen are rendered slightly grayish. For most people and most applications, this won’t be a problem – and it’s a phenomenon that’s scarcely unique to the Monoprice unit – but graphic designers will want to carefully compare this screen with others to see what meets their needs.
The panel features 109 pixels per inch, which translates to a 0.2331mm pixel size. The unit also includes builtin stereo speakers, which can be fed via a stereo audio cable, as well as audio from the HDMI connection. As with most builtin monitor speakers, the sound was tinny and unimpressive, so I don’t recommend using them. Buy a pair of standalone computer speakers instead.
Another stat is response time, which the company says is 6 milliseconds (gray-to-gray response time). That’s a measurement of how long it takes the monitor to change the image when the PC tells it to, and is an issue for almost no one except gamers.
Bottom line: if you’re looking for a high-quality 27″ WQHD IPS LED monitor at a great price, pick up the Monoprice 10489.

Sarungtinyu patties, Promising Home Based Recipes

Culinary business ideas can come from anywhere. Even the food that we usually eat at home, which may have previously considered normal, could become a promising business. Provided that there is a strong intention, whatever can produce the coffers of dollars

This is the underlying Amanda, Saeful and his two friends. Their average age is under 25 years old was thought to make business. After each of their ideas, eventually named patties Sarungtinyu culinary style that they choose to be their business.

“We are inspired from the many spicy foods on the market. Chips if it always, we want to try something different but also spicy. So we try the cakes,” says Amanda who is familiarly called Manda to detikbandung.

Sarungtinyu own name of course meaningful. Cakes he made it shaped like a boxing glove.

“Sarungtinyu also punched the right philosophy when it nampol tuh. Whilst our cakes taste as well pedesnya nampol, so named after sarungtinyu. Why not boxing gloves, because if not you people like to mention Sunda boxing gloves so tinyu gloves, sandals so senal,” said Manda with a laugh.

Just two months into the culinary business. Manda two colleagues resigned, until now only Sarungtinyu managed by Manda and her boyfriend Saeful.

Manda cakes are created equal as we often make at home. Manda said he did not have a special recipe of cakes he made.

“The recipe fabricate. Material yes potatoes, celery, etc., so the recipes themselves alone try to find any really delicious. So I love-love recipes that important good,” he said relaxing.

Manda perkedelnya initially marketed in the campus cafeteria. Then Manda market through twitter with the name @ sarungtinyu.

“At first sell-sell in the cafeteria, through the fuel, now selling same on twitter. Much love, make snacks,” said student Padjajaran the class of 2007.

Manda admitted selling cakes Sarungtinyu enjoy this. He could not believe homemade cakes liked a lot. “Yes baseball nyangka wrote, likable people. Even now nobody wants the same franchise in Jayapura, Pontianak,” said long-haired woman.

Mr. Marsa’ad Wooden Car Business

Jakarta – Almost all the boys love toy cars. Who would have thought that nearly all wooden toy cars that are sold in the markets of Jakarta, is the result of handicraft factory UD Glad Son of Mr. Marsa’ad.

“I started this business in 1977. Originally a fad because my previous job bankrupt,” said detikFinance Marsa’ad when met at his shop, Kalibata, Jakarta, Sunday (03/08/2008).

57-year-old inspiration comes from his desire to make an effort to please the kids.

“I thought, who does not like toy cars,” said Marsa’ad.

With a modest capital, entrepreneurs whose real name is Omar is starting to open this business. He then worked with landowners in the Sky View to open a store there.

“So I was working with landowners. He provided land, my products. Distribution system with the results,” said Marsa’ad.

This toy factory located in Karawang. The manufacturer was not a big factory with advanced technology, but a cottage industry factories.

“So in Karawang, I apply a bulk messaging system at home factories there,” said Marsa’ad.

Bulk messaging system is Marsa’ad is purchasing system based on the unit, and the payment is made based on the number of units made. In modern terminology, the system outright Marsa’ad pack style is similar to the system of outsourcing.

“Because if we are using the system pay a bit troublesome. Again if they are lazy, the results of the unit a bit, I still have to pay them,” said Marsa’ad.

Integrated production mechanism is not retained by Marsa’ad for 30 years. Along the way, apparently by a mechanism like that, sir effort Marsa’ad never experienced the glory.

“The number of craftsmen we’ve reached 200 people. When the production very much at all, even exported to the Netherlands, Germany, Australia and Japan,” said Marsa’ad.

When it was the style of pack Marsa’ad craft products are sold in various cities in Indonesia such as Jakarta, Bogor, Tangerang, Palembang, Cirebon to Semarang.

“Even now, the actual demand is still very high, but we can not meet because our craftsmen now numbers only 40 puppets,” said Marsa’ad.

According to Mr. Marsa’ad, economic conditions became the main factor that led to the shrinking amount of factory labor. If the first UD Happy Child is able to produce 37 types of cars, now reduced by half to 18 types only.

Depreciation amount also cut production craftsman toy cars to a maximum of 500 units a month.

“In fact, the Dutch or German for example, they usually ask for 200 units once per country,” said Marsa’ad.

Labor issues apparently quite hamper business development Marsa’ad pack. Not factory integrated system that has been running for 30 years has been questioned by Marsa’ad pack.

“In these circumstances, I think to make a factory. However large enough capital around USD 300-500 million. Equity is to buy the warehouse, mesian and forth,” said Marsa’ad.

Had an integrated plant is realized, of course labor issues can be controlled. Moreover, according to Mr. Marsa’ad, in terms of the number of very high demand, so the future prospects of this business is not a thing to worry about.

“The proof, in the middle of the fuel price hike like this, when we raise prices, demand has not diminished,” said Marsa’ad.

Currently selling price pack Marsa’ad between Rp 35 thousand to Rp 175 thousand per unit. Required capital ranging from Rp 23 thousand to Rp 125 thousand per unit.

“But to make the factory, we hit the capital. Want to submit to the bank, but we do not have collateral. Moreover, banks also do not believe in this effort,” said Marsa’ad.

Even though it has still been a dream factory, but he hopes to realize her dream someday, either with their own capital as well as working with external financiers.
