There are issues with the scaler in this monitor, meaning 16:9 content will be slightly stretched to fit the whole screen. You can of course use GPU scaling to get around this. The newer zr2240w model is LED backlit, and the scaler issues have been...

Great Viewing Angle ; Good price ; Brightness ; Excellent Color ; 16:10

Not LED Backlit ; Internal scaler doesn't work correctly ; Brightness

Great, aside from the ozone


With its IPS LCD panel, versatile stand, built-in USB ports, 1200 vertical pixels, and reasonable price this would be nearly a perfect monitor -- if only it hadn't tried to gas us with ozone.

Great image quality and viewing angles from the IPS panel; USB hub is very useful; tilt/swivel/height-adjustable stand is good; the 1920x1200 resolution is very useful and increasingly rare as 1080p televisions have ruined the monitor market

Emitted very strong odor of ozone. People down the hall thought something was on fire. It's also a bit thick, but in practical terms that probably doesn't matter

Great if..

Nice looking, very sturdy and 16x10. I really liked this monitor. If you can get these monitors with out defects they are great

Well let me start. Two of these were ordered from another very reputable site. The first two were defective in the sense that one had debris in the LCD itself, the other had a cluster of about 7 to 10 stuck red pixels. Those were sent back and two more...

Really good monitor


My computer was off for over a month before I bought this monitor, and when I plugged this sucker in, the screen would go black almost as soon as I loaded a game. It turned out I needed to dl a driver for this thing...and it took me a bit to realize...

I bought this to replace my ols Samsung BW245, and man am I pleasantly surprised. I love the viewing angles, it's great for viewing your photos as the color reproduction is good, and I like how adjustable the stand is. I also use it to watch movies and...

No real other thoughts

Great Monitor For Coding and/or Gaming


The newegg photo is wrong. The monitor comes with a Display Port cable, not a HDMI cable. Response time is 7ms... I was very slightly concerned about that being too slow, but I don't see any ghosting or any other issues when playing FPS's.

16x10 Aspect ratio. Important if you need those extra vertical pixels ; Text looks great ; Brightness! I turned the brightness down to 0. Seems fine to me that way ; The buttons used to navigate the menu are intuitive. (Except for the '+/-'...

There's no single source button. Instead, you have to hit the '+' button, and then select the source using either the '+' or '-' button. My old monitor had a single source button to switch to the next active source. It's a very slight annoyance, as...

Good monitor, could be better


Got two of these to set side-by-side, used mostly for professional graphics work, not gaming or movies. Very pleased with the color quality and brightness once calibrated (other than max darkness). No matter what I do, I can't make my two monitors to...

Image quality and color are great (for professional graphics work) ; Only needed a bit of calibration ; Price is pretty good for this quality

Black isn't really very black even at its darkest ; Takes about 10 seconds to switch on / wake up - annoying ; If you run the cables run through the stand you'll still see them dangling below the monitor and they make it difficult to rotate the monitor...

Very Satisfied


Overall I'm very happy. When the time comes to go from a 3 monitor Eyefinity setup to a 6 monitor, I will definitely check to see if this monitor is still available.

Less than $400 for an IPS monitor! Viewing angle is much better than my non-IPS monitors. This baby is bright, I had to set it to 50% or less, whereas my other monitors are set to 80-90%. The stand also swivels and monitor has 2 USB ports on left-side...

Thicker than I thought it would be, just over 2". My other IPS monitor from many years ago is almost 3/4" thinner. Has that annoying bright blue power led, I wish manufacturers would take a hint from more stylish makers and use muted led colors
