What do you mean by quality?

For instance, the Pixio has great specs, but I don't know if the quality of the panel or the quality of the physical outside of the monitor. I also don't know about these monitor's quality control.

In that case, look at multiple reviews of the monitor. That's where you should find the info you're looking for.

From videos and photos, it seems like the usual cheap enclosure that isn't the prettiest thing to look at or touch and the colors won't be as well calibrated as something like the PB278Q. Pixio seems to be a pretty new company so reliability of their monitors has yet to be seen.
