Horrible Brightness issue

 

Honestly a mistake I don't know how they allow.

None, this is a below acceptable monitor when you notice the brightness can't change and is useless

Cheap, at least for what I thought most monitor's possessed, a basic level of ability. This one it seemed they must of tried to mess up and still sell them for their horrible brightness. You can't lower the brightness on blue and white especially in...

Awesome Monitor!!!

 

For the sale price you can't go wrong.

Plenty of brightness.Good size for gaming. 1080p. Color quality is beautiful when sitting at the correct angle. Contrast feels nice, text is easily readable and you can easily tell even the most subtle difference between colors. LED blacklit and thin...

Didn't come with HDMI port ; Light weight, a little too bright but nothing that obsessed me
