Consumer review (

too smart for its own good


Generally, this is a pretty good large monitor. Once, I moved it and it started making an obnoxious whining noise, but it stopped when I adjusted some minor settings (I think it was the brightness, maybe color balance). The really aggravating thing...

Large ; decent picture ; decent speakers ; VESA mountable

auto-detect issues ; unresponsive controls ; hard to read menu labels ; image glitches ; whining noise at some settings ; speakers linked to video in ; noise in lower right

Dieing just after a year


The buttons on the front are kind of hard to use, especially in a dark room.

Great cheap high res monitor for the first year

After about a year there is now significant discoloration and flickering in one of the corners. It's frustrating that it would die so quickly, I normally consider monitors to be a long term investment

Great Screen!


I use this monitor for work. Its great for wide spreadsheets, outlook, working on multiple documents or multi-tasking.

Low price. Super wide resolution. Height adjustable

Some the screen seems almost TOO wide. Not a big gripe though

Great Product


Overall a great monitor, got in on Shell shocker deal so pleased with the price and as always New Egg did a fantastic job of shipping the monitor quickly.

Great Monitor, excellent resolution, awesome features

The reason I gave this monitor 4 stars instead of 5, switching inputs is a pain, have to use the menu to get there, and also the viewing angle isn't quite what I'd expect

Great Value Monitor


Excellent value for such a large monitor

Comes with Lots of Cords ; Very Adjustable, extends very high ; Higher than 1080p resolution

Black Levels are not stellar ; One dead pixel in the bottom corner ; Speakers are poor, and buzz when turned up loud

Mixed Thoughts ...


I bought this monitor as a Shell Shocker a while back and the first one developed some nasty discoloration in the top left of the screen and it was starting to spread so I RMA'd back, no problems there, Newegg is awesome. It took seemingly forever to...

Great picture, amazing resolution, inexpensive, slim and sleek looking, the UBS hub onboard is really nice, no more reaching under the desk to plug in a flash drive

Kind of a loudish buzzing / humming noise. Stand extender button dealy was broken so the stand is stuck on the lowest height. I bought it because it extends and I can't even use that feature ; RMA'd the first one due to picture issues - see below

Love this display!


I thought long and hard about this purchase. The reports of customer support issues gave me pause.Ultimately, the other reviews swayed me, particularly since I can always get warranty service from my credit card company if worse came to worse. ...

VERY adjustable: Tilt, swivel, AND height ; Easy to assemble ; Clear, vibrant display ; Connectivity options - DVI, HDMI, and VGA ; Built-in USB hub ; ALL cables included - DVI, HDMI, VGA, USB, and sound (which I don't intend to use)

Some of the USB ports are on the underside of the monitor, making them very difficult to get to. (Since there are a couple on the side, it didn't cost an egg.)

Very Nice Widescreen Resolution


This is my first widescreen monitor and I wasn't quite prepared for the amount of space this would take up; It fills up my desk quite well, to say the least.

Definantly the size, resolution and price. No dead pixels to report on mine, which is always nice. This monitor is also very easy to rotate and adjust which was a huge con on my other monitor

Good, except the noise!


If not for the noise, this monitor is perfect.

High resolution, nice image quality

Whenever I connect this monitor to my laptop, I can hear very boring noise from the monitor; yes, it is from the inside of the monitor, not from the speaker. It sounds like the noise from some electronic parts inside
