nice screen


one screen came with a dead pixel. one dead pixel bewteen three screens isnt bad. you only see it when the screen is completely black during cut scences and what not.

This is a very nice screen at a great price. It has a very thin almost none existent bezil making it great for a multi screen set up. i purchased three for my new build and im happy with them. HDMI, VGA and DVI ports. comes with one of each cable and a...

i bought three and one of them sits lower then the other two. kinda of irritating, but not unbearable . reading through other reviews ive noticed other people that have had other inconsistencies like this

One of the best monitors I've ever owned


The power adapter is external.

Affordable ; IPS panel ; Great colors and view angles ; Thin ; Thin bezels/great for multi monitor setups ; Comes with every cable you'd need VGA/DVI/HDMI ; No dead pixels ; I just ordered another one of these because of how great they are ; The screen...

Wobbles easily if you're the kind of person that hits your computer desk often or type/game violently ; Out of the box calibration is messed up in Windows 8.1 (There's a strong yellow tint). You have to calibrate it manually by using the Windows...

Absolutely Amazing


I had a little bit of trouble setting it up. For anyone reading this, you have to give a little bit of a push on the monitor to put it on the stand. Not too much, but more than I would have expected.

IPS ; Goes well with my iMac ; edge to edge glass (Except for the bottom) ; HDMI, DVI, and VGA (with cables included!) ; Price: $120? Who can beat that ; Pretty much everything, actually ; Auto switches inputs ; Sleep mode (Pretty much all monitors...

The buttons on the bottom are a little hard to press ; I use this as a secondary monitor for two different computers. It is kind of annoying that the computers do not automatically recognize that I switched an input. It would be nice if it did, but I...

Crystal clear monitor!


It took me a while to get the colors and gamma set up properly, but that's it. I won't dock an egg because that's mostly my own fault.

1080p ; Crystal clear, glossy screen ; Easy to set up ; Supports just about any input you could need ; Thin bezel makes it look very nice ; The stand looks great and is very sturdy ; Great price, I got it for $130

There is just a bit of light leak around the edges of the screen which becomes more apparent on darker websites or dark scenes in a game/movie but it's not really a bother to me

Beautiful and sleek


I wish I could have started with this panel and gone with 3 of them. It's perfect for a 3+ monitor set up.

Slim, Glossy gives a beautiful view to it, sturdy and quality

I feel the bezel could be a little less for how great it is... but this doesn't warrant an egg removal of any kind

glossy, but doesn't bother me

slick looking ; no external border

not height-adjustable ; dead-pixel within a month: ordered on sept. 22, just noticed a dead pixel today, oct. 20

First monitor I've bought for myself that wasn't handed down. Had it up and running in around 2 minutes and it was beautiful. I was previously working with a laptop with 1600x900 resolution, the step up to 1920x1080 is great. Sharp image, high pixel...

Stand construction was a breeze ; Super sleek looking ; Lightweight ; Thin bezel (not all the way to the edges obviously, its probably about 1/4 inch all the way around)

Gets dirty pretty easily because its so glossy, but its not a problem usually ; Long startup time (~10 seconds) but its irrelevant if you leave it on at night like I do ; Ports on the back stick straight out instead of facing downwards, not a big deal

Beautiful monitor


Bought it for 140 dollars on sale, love it.

This monitor is beautiful. It has no dead pixels and a very good viewing angle. The glossy screen does reflect what is behind me but it is hardly noticeable. There is zero light bleeding. I also payed for 4-7 day shipping and it came in 1 day

Consider this a great buy!


This monitor is amazingly thin, has the crispest display I've seen, and it has 100m:1 contrast ratio, making images look amazingly vivid! I'd definitely recommend this as a great full 1080p monitor

None really. Great product

Nice Monitor


Light, average footprint. I really like the resolution on this monitor and the fact that it came with all the cables needed to hook it up was a huge plus. The display is almost mirror-like when not in use, but not noticeable (at least to me) when in...

Beautiful display resolution ; Comes with all the cables you need, including HDMI ; Multiple input options

No internal speakers
