Summary: When I received the item, the stand and the cables were shipped separately by a different carrier. Also, the screws that secure the monitor to the stand were missing. But once I had the item setup, the screen works great. Easy to adjust as well as many different calibration options. It is bright and also non glare.
Summary: As others have previously mentioned, this is a nice monitor. I've got two of these on the front room computer running Ubuntu for several monthes without issue. I do video processing and 3D art in addition to programming and all the 'standard stuff' (Gaming, surfing, watching TV via internal card, etc) and these look great. No dead pixels, bleeding, or anything. I switch resolutions on these regularly, and again, these have been solid.
Summary: I have had the monitor for 4 months now and I have not had one problem with it. I originally bought this monitor from Fry's for $120 on sale with a 3 year Fry's warranty, which I thought was a good deal. Though I was initially satisfied with my deal, I got the itch for spending more on what I thought would be a better screen. So I returned my AOC and I went through 4 monitors - Dell, Acer, Toshiba and Gateway - all of them over $200.
Summary: Great monitor the price. I purchased from Fry's originally but kind of got worried about the 1 button switch for all menu. Image quality was so and so but the size per dollar spend makes it a bargain. Consumer Reports had it on the recommended list so I got one. Eventually, I came to my senses and decided to go for a LG 23" after all. This AOC reliability history is to be seen.
Summary: I bought it based on a user review from a professional photographer on another site. This user believed that after photo calibration, it was as good as monitors costing several times more. It is SO hard to find information on monitors as to suitability for photography, that I figured for the low cost I had nothing to lose. I have to agree with that other photographer. The image quality is very high, as is the color accuracy.
