Packard Bell Maestro 242DX

 

image and colour quality is superb

the only bad point i can think of is the touch screen menu buttons at the right hand side, if your fingers are dry the buttons dont function properly.

Packard Bell Maestro 242DX

 

genuine out-of-the-box set up; this was an easy experience (once I had worked out that I needed to change the resolution of my video in Control box - but the screen detected this and told me to pull my finger out) The size is perfect - not so big to...

Packard Bell Maestro 242DX

 

So easy to read everything on the large screen. Colours are brilliant.No glare.Did not know what I was missing. I mess around a lot with photographs, Improving old family photos and saving to discs. A real joy to use. Very simple to set up.

Packard Bell Maestro 242DX

 

My first monitor of this size, so I am not an expert, but I am delighted by the quality and value for money. I've found the additional USB ports an unexpected plus.
