Meh.

 

Originally bought it at $160, would not buy again for that price - there are similar monitors at a similar price with more features. Would consider buying it again if it went on sale and I was on a tight budget.

Matte screen cuts down on glare ; Inexpensive

Bezel is fairly large ; Plastic body feels flimsy ; Not VESA mount compatible ; Backlight bleeding around edges of screen after a few months ; Power light on the front seems brighter than the sun in a dark room (I put black electrical tape over it) ;...

Good monitor for price

 

Bought 2 of these for my wife and she is incredibly happy with them. I have not seen any of the issues everybody else has been complaining about with either of the two monitors. They were inexpensive and perfect for a dual monitor setup for work at home.

Inexpensive, decent display after you fiddle with the brightness and contrast

Not very adjustable, but you pay extra for that

Happy Owner

 

I am older and have glasses but I can't find anything wrong. Met my expectations. :)

A monitor should just work, otherwise why should I have to teach it. I have used with Macs, PCs, and composite video converter. Got it on sale and if I had to pay a little more probably would. No regrets

Position is not adjustable or rotatable. Didn't need it to be though. Simple stand. Probably break if not kept on solid surface

Solid Monitor

 

I watched some movies in office lighting and didn't see any problems. Maybe there would be problems if you want to use this monitor as a TV screen all the time and sit 8-10 feet away from it with your head tilted to the side. But this is a monitor, not...

It looks great in a work environment. No dead or stuck pixels on arrival. Do not understand the other comments about limited viewing angle or inability to adjust the angle of the stand. Both are at or above average and I have been supporting LCD...

Good secondary monitor

 

I purchased one of these for use as a second monitor. Looking at this side-by-side with my primary monitor, the colors are clearly more faded on this one. Even something simple like black does not appear as black, even when using a "proper" viewing...

Decently priced, thin and sleek looking, does its job

The coloring is clearly faded

Good for the price. Great for day to day use.

 

For the price it's not a bad budget monitor. I would not recommend it for a hardcore gamer, but it would be ideal for someone starting out on a budget. I gave it 5 eggs because it works well for what it is and what it was purchased for (school work and...

1920x1080 resolution ; can manually select DVI or VGA connection ; Colors are great at proper viewing angles ; Great buy when on sale

The viewing angles aren't that great. When looking down at the screen the colors are almost completely washed out. The menu buttons are on the bottom of the monitor and not labeled. It makes it difficult to navigate the menu
