Consumer review by: stephen f. (newegg.com)

display looks great. speakers? what speakers?

 

edit: after a few hours screen started to go black for a second and come back on. swapped out the included HDMI cable for one that i had and seems to be working fine now for 2 days. seemed to fix very low audio from built in speakers too. it is now at...

easy set up. display is nice. great value for 24" monitor

speakers are smaller than cell phone speakers. volume is so low can barely hear it. and they are rear facing. not even undermount. terrible. speakers are the reason i bought this model. also, the audio input is coming from the HDMI input. which is fine...

Upgrade from Hanns-G Hi221

 

A decent 24" monitor that weighs a feather compared to my previous monitor. Comes with HDMI, DVI and VGA cables. Blue power light goes with my case.

At this price, 5ms and tinny speakers are expected. No need to dock an egg.

Great Monitor

 

Very good monitor.

Well, this monitor is great, this is the first monitor I've had that is enjoyable just to look at. The color ratio is really high. Your eyes just want to blow up with enjoyability. It's super big, it's 24" but it feels bigger. All in all its a...

The speakers are crap, but that's why you never rely on monitor speakers, all ways but new speakers. And the price is a lot more than what I paid about a year ago. I got it for $129.99, which was an awesome deal. But it wasn't on sale or anything.

It's a monitor

 

I spent about $130 for this monitor which was a decent price at the time for a 24" monitor. I have no idea what's up with the speakers and the manual doesn't make mention of them, but it obviously has them listed on the description and the monitor has...

easy setup

stand is a little iffy speakers don't seem to work via hdmi or the supplied aux cable colors seem washed out

Beautiful monitor for the price!

 

The stand is NOT that bad. It's a normal, fairly sturdy stand. I haven't had any issues with it moving, sliding, etc.

Beautiful, large screen...plenty of work area for my multiple monitor setup. Crisp, clear display. Includes all 3 connector cables...HDMI, DVI, and D-Sub...that's a first. Great bargain at $120 shipped.

None.

Nice Looking Display

 

For the money, it's hard to beat this monitor. The main issue is the display, and it looks great.

The display looks great. I don't have any complaints about it.

I saw a lot of reviews with people complaining about the stand on this monitor. It's true that it's not the sturdiest stand I've ever seen. It could have used a metal plate or something in the design to stabilize it better. But I've got it setup on the...

Fine for Simple Use

 

For an inexpensive monitor, it does what I needed.

Easy install, lightweight (which is a benefit for me) reasonable color and contrast.

Fixed height

Good product for its price

 

I'd recommend this monitor for Internet, Office and so on. Not good for photography.

Inexpensive. Decent performance for such price. Yes, it's TN, not IPS. Nevertheless it provides good colors and acceptable view angles.

None so far
