    12ms refresh seems a bit high?
    Price is good though.

    review said it was more like 6ms, which matches other brands that come from the same manufacturer

    I've seen a number of reviews and user posts now rating these monitors quite highly. Do remember though, for the $399, you only get a 1 year warranty, and this price doesn't include delivery.

    As a comparison, the Dell U2713HM can be had for around the $450 mark with the frequent specials. This comes with the awesome Dell onsite exchange warranty. Not that I've used one, but I'd look at the Dell as well.

    I would say Australian Consumer Law would give you about 2.5 years "warranty" (stating products must be covered for a foreseeable product use lifespan).

    But yeah, can't go wrong with Dell, especially with next day on site warranty.

    You may get 2.5yrs "warranty" under the law but given how Kogan acquire these, I doubt any law will have any meaningful impact.

    As much as I like getting value for $$, I'd say go with Dell on large ticket items.
