Great overall monitor, but not a great graphic designer monitor
Girl AMD "Tech Savvy Artist", Amazon
18 June 2013
Summary: Pros: -Cheap -Gets the job done for most tasks -Not a bad picture quality all considering Cons: -NOT very good for color critical work as the contrast ratio is very low even after using a hardware color calibrator -White LED washes out the colors somewhat -Unpacking caused some high nerves -Cannot mount because connectors/controls are built into base As a career, I am a web developer/graphic designer as well as a digital fine artist.
Summary: Once you've set up the monitor, it looks and performs quite well. I wouldn't suggest using the "default" video card that came with the computer. A video card update would be necessary for exceptional results.
Summary: This monitor can use both VGA and DVI input. It is very lightweight and looks nice. The picture quality is good and it has a few ways to enhance colors in the on-screen menu. The only downside is the installation and this is why I'm only giving it three stars. This monitor is not plug-and-play (maybe I missed something or did something wrong?). It comes with driver software that you'll have to install first, obviously using a different monitor.
Summary: I like these monitors, they work well, crisp, bright, easy to access controls. The only thing I don't like that you cannot detatch the monitors from their stands since the stands have the controls on them, and the inputs are on the back of the stand and not the monitor. I have monitor mounts on my desk, the stands go vertical for mounting, but you you then have these orbs on the bottom and they look funny.
Summary: Purchased this monitor at a brick and mortar store on sale for a really good price. The entire assembly was very light, and the base felt solid. I liked how the connections were on the base as opposed to the monitor itself. There is a LOT of flex in the attachment arm. A bump sets it wobbling, but under normal use it should be fine. Picture was very bright at factory settings.
