Grumpy, picky,skeptical-even-while-ordering lawyer instantly, and surprisingly, falls in LOVE
28 December 2011
Summary: Listen, I never write reviews for a product. I'm a grumpy lawyer, and so I'm a really picky purchaser, generally negative, and extremely hard to please. I'm really hesitant about buying monitors online without being able to see them in person.
Summary: I got this at costco today for $199. i didn't know I was getting a deal until I found out how much other places are selling online. It's everything I wanted in a big monitor...sharp, brilliant color, thin, light. The best feature is the HDMI input option. This monitor is steal for $199.
Summary: To tell you straight out why I didn't give this monitor a 5 star review, it's because of the blacks not coming across as true "black". You have 5 presets to choose from, though if you make any fine tuning on the set itself, it will automatically set you to "User".
Summary: Highly recommended. Low power consumption. No complaints at all about the picture. The sound is about the quality of a cheap transistor radio (think cheap clock radio if you're too young to have had a transistor radio). My laptop does better. The base is ok, but could be more solid and heavy.
Summary: Decent, looks good on the desk, easy to assemble. Most of the calibration settings are difficult to adjust. I'm not a gamer, so I cant comment on its motion capabilities, but the general picture is just OK.
Summary: I picked up my 27" inch monitor for 229+ tax from Fry's when it was on sale. I didn't expect much since it was so cheap but I was pleastantly surprised because the screen is really bright, fast, and has really good colors.
Summary: I could not imagine a monitor so great. It was also a very easy set up. Best of all...all cords were included, so I did not have to run to the store to pick anything up. This was good. This monitor is sharp, bright and I am almost ready to toss my glasses. I am very happy with this purchase.
The perfect, cheap 27 inch monitor I was looking for.

Summary: After lots of comparing to the other affordable 27 inchers I bought this one in June of 2011 after a few much needed specifications from FiSH, the other reviewer above. I narrowed my search down to the Viewsonic VX2753mh, Samsung S27A550H, the Acer S273HL and this one.
Summary: Extremely happy with this display. Was able to achieve the rich and natural image quality one expects from a good monitor with very little tweaking and calibration. No defective pixels or frustrating back light bleed.
