Summary: Never could correct the color hues, even with the software that opens in an oriental language and took an hour to figure out how to change the language. Poor documentaion. Speakers are cheap and tinny - sounds like an old 2 inch walkman speaker. The font smoothing was inadequate. I think there must be a better monitor for the money, but that's just me.
Summary: This monitor is a great value at $229. It does everything a display should do and it does it well. I would purchase more products from AoC. I bought a 2nd one because I like it so much. I use it for games at home and looking at text at work.
Summary: The colors are faded, and you can tell even without comparing it to another monitor. Images don't pop out, and feel lifeless. Use this for spreadsheets only, as the lack of color will leave you feeling depressed. Compared, however, to my professional monitor, the colors are REALLY faded. I would label the poor colors a defect, plain and simple. Speakers also did not work. Had to return it.
Summary: This is an excellent monitor, especially for the price. I have it hooked up to a Mac Mini and it is hard to believe you can get such a good picture for so little money. It has a better picture than the $1000 Apple displays(though a lower resolution). I'm might get another one for the office.
