Great monitor


Purchased for my wife some time ago. Excellent display. No issues

Exactly what I wanted.


This monitor is bright. At night, I think it illuminates my living room more than my desk lamp; if you stumble into your office/bedroom at night or in the morning, prepare to get your eyes seered out of your head. It's really that bright. I won't list...

I have owned this monitor for 9 months, and yet to have a single issue. This monitor was exactly what was advertised. I am very happy with what I received. It's a bright, brilliant, and easy to game on monitor. The other 5 star reviews pretty much...

Great monitor. I had a nice Viewsonic LED monitor and this one just blows it away. The only bad part about going IPS (I also have a Retina MacBook Pro) is that they ruin you for every other laptop/LCD screen.

Great colors, sharp graphics. Sick viewing angles. Bezel and stand are NOT glossy

Somewhat flimsy stand. Don't really care for the adjustment buttons but that's what almost all monitors have these days

RMA'd the first on


The price was right, but item arrived with the bottom right corner being dimmer than the rest of the screen

Dim bottom right corner

Excellent Buy


Have two of them in dual monitor coniguration. Out of the box the color reproduction does not match exactly. Calibrate by eye or preferrably use a spyder and they are fantastic.

Great Color; no bleed; no dead pixels; no ghosting while gaming; excellent adjustability and calibration; height and swivel; matte bevel. IPS = great color and viewing angles

Its not free

Excellent buy


Awesome IPS image- crisp and clear with dvi output. I planned to dual monitor this with an older monitor but the image was so superior that I gave the old monitor to charity. Slim, elegant; adjustable height and rotation

Speakers a little weak but I expected that

Haven't used the speakers. Probably never will. It's nice to know they're there though!

Beautiful colors, very crisp, lots of settings and features, great viewing angles

Great buy


Neither Windows 7 nor Ubuntu Pangolin worked properly from fresh install. The monitor was registered as a standard PnP VGA screen by default, and as such, the screen output did not fill the entire screen (with a 3/4" empty border around the screen)....

1) IPS 23" with reasonable quality at $200. NewEgg promotion covered shipping, sales tax and monitor fee (in CA.) ; 2) The monitor swivels, tilts, adjusts height, and pivots. The NewEgg description does not mention the last part, so it was a pleasant...

1) No HDMI, but I knew this going in

Great budget IPS


Looks incredible and very large!. The picture is amazing and the colors are very large and vibrant. The IPS makes great colors ; Definitely reccomended

Display port or HDMI connections would be nice ; Viewing angles are not as good as more expensive IPS panels ; Speakers are poor but that's to be expected
