Pretty

Bob S., Amazon

  • Summary: This monitor is just flat out a good looking monitor. It works flawlessly and the picture is crisp and clear. The only downside to this monitor is it's speakers, but if you're buying a monitor for it's speakers there's something wrong with you...

It's a quality screen for a lower price

  • Summary: This is an above average screen which I bought because it looked cool. I guarantee you will not be disappointed with the product beyond the speakers, which themselves aren't necessary All in all a great monitor, no problems yet.

Very disappointed

R. Smith "handyrae", Amazon
11 January 2014
  • Summary: The image quality is OK, but not great. You can barely adjust the placement of the screen up and down and you can not adjust it either to tilt vertically or side to side. This makes the screen virtually static in its placement. I purchased this particular monitor because it has internal speaker. It does have speakers, but the sound quality is awful -- so awful as to be unlistenable and I'm going to have to get a separate set of speakers.

Could have been good

  • Summary: Although I can give full marks to Amazon for prompt collection and refund, I have had two of these this month both with faults. The first just had a black screen - the power button lit up etc but no display was available. The second kept flickering and twitching, whether using analog or digital inputs. When working, the second looked very nice indeed, and I am in a minority in that I prefer a gloss screen like this one has.

Great screen

Denny Cornell, Amazon
10 March 2014
  • Summary: Pro's Very pleased with the screen, nice to be able to charge my phone when working and its great to have two side by side in the office and be able to SEE what is on each others without having to move heads to sort the light. Some other people have commented that they get light reflecting from the shiny glass... I have the window to the left of me and have honestly never noticed this.

Great

Amazon Customer, Amazon
12 July 2013
  • Summary: Not much to add except this is a great monitor, like the other reviewer this is also the best monitor I've ever had. Quality of materials is exceptional and I also paid £70 less than what is listed here. After owning some decent quality monitors I wanted something a bit premium and I got it with this monitor. Before using the monitor you must tighten two screws on the bottom of the stand, the monitor will not be stable otherwise.

Fell in love with it twice

B. J. Davies "EntilZha", Amazon

  • Summary: The first thing that struck me when I saw this in the shop was how beautifully designed it was. Then I turned it on....the the colours sprang out, making a fantastic impression on me and making obvious the difference in colours and clarity compared to my HP 23" LED monitor at home which is a really good monitor that cost a lot when I bought it.

  • Excerpt: В целом отличный монитор, но из-за такого конфуза я немного расстроен и разачарован.
  • Pros: размер, цена, качество картинки.
  • Cons: матрица, может не всем неповезло, но у меня пиксели выгорели\сгорели точно не знаю, но периодически (что еще более странно) на темно цвете видны засветы, недавно так окошко скайпа выгорело, и н а темном его видно.

Eigentlich super, schaltet sich aber alle paar Minuten aus und wieder ein....

Harald Staub, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: Habe mir den Monitor vor kurzem hier gekauft und bin grundsätzlich sehr zufrieden damit. Der glänzende Bildschirm kann zwar stören, wenn man von einer Lichtquelle oder einem Fenster hinter dem Monitor angestrahlt wird, aber das sollte man halt beim Kauf schon berücksichtigen. Bei mir höchstens morgens mal der Fall - Jalousie für die kurze Zeit an dem betreffenden Fenster runter und fertig (wenn man nur 1 Fenster hat, ists natürlich blöd).

  • Excerpt: Могу спустя некоторое время использования сказать, что это лучший монитор в своем ценовом диапазоне! Первое и самое главное - это матрица и глянцевое покрытие. Считаю это единственным вариантом, когда потенциал IPS матрицы раскрывается полностью на бюджетном мониторе. Ради этого я готов терпеть блики на экране от солнечных лучей днем, ведь уменьшение света в комнате при просмотре фильма - проблема решаемая, а вот плюсов от такого типа матрицы намного больше.
  • Pros: Великолепная картина! Глянцевое покрытие как большой плюс! Отличные углы обзора.
  • Cons: Отсутствие DVI. Низкокачественные встроенные колонки. Отсутствие HDMI кабеля(есть только переходник на microHDMI)
