Fantastic value for money, simple set up just plug and go really. Ideal for watching catch up programs or films on line

Being a cheaper product the quality of the picture is not as sharp as a more expensive product so if you are a gamer i wouldn't buy this product but for general everyday surfing etc you can't go wrong

Very easy to assemble. Brilliant picture. Excellent value for money

The only thing that lets it down is the poor sound quality. Have had to buy separate speakers

HP Compaq Q2159


Good image, but stretches old photos to screen proportions. I should have bought the next size up

Even if the CD is loaded, windows does not readily accept the drivers, and setting up (which is limited) makes no difference until the Compaq drivers are adopted. Without this the image quality is poor. Don't give up, it takes several attempts but well...

Very easy to set up and picture is really clear and so is the sound quality. I used my tesco points when it was double the money over Christmas, so actually I paid nothing for the monitor. Therefore it was excellent value for money

None, so far
