Green Tint & A Side Dead Pixels


ClearType was ridiculously insane to configure for this screen, and the viewing angles were much less than expected. HDMI input does not fill the display at all, no matter the resolution. DisplayPort does however. I have owned a Planar once before, and...

It's big, it's HD, it has DisplayPort, it's Planar

As soon as I powered this up, I felt a fear that something would just have to go wrong with such a large display - and what do you know? I was right. The display was decidedly green until I found the settings to manually adjust the coloring. It would...

Dead pixel


Now let's see how good Planar's customer service is...

Beautiful picture ; Easy setup

Dead pixel. Opened it up, turned it on, and boom - dead pixel in the bottom corner. Very sad about that, I thought everything would go well but it appears it hasn't

An easier input select would also have been nice, I use the 3rd monitor as a PS3 screen as well, so a single input select button to cycle them would be nice. Also, as I got them for a trip monitor setup smaller bezels would have been awesome.

Out of the box to setup and clean crisp picture in no time. Wether connected to my PS3 or PC these have a beautiful picture. The preset color adjustments are all about as good as it gets

The built-in speakers are worthless, but I don't really care since I'm not actually using them, they could have not been there at all and I'd still be happy

Better than I imagined


Great monitor with nice built in speakers. Definitely worth picking up.

This monitor is HUGE. I really should have measured out 27 inches to see how big it would be before I bought it. I was very pleased with how big it was though. Screen is very bright and didn't come with any dead pixels

The only con I can think of is that it may be to big for some people. Make sure you have enough desk space before picking this one up
