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: 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.
Summary: If you don't read well, (lookin at you 1-star review), then perhaps the product pictures may help.
Pros: Thin bezel (I measured it at 1/2" from pixel to physical edge of the screen), no noticeable bleed on the edges, IPS colors are quite accurate, better than average (Asus, Acer) speakers on a monitor, matte finish on the screen is nice
Cons: Only came with a VGA, but that's practically expected these days. Not worth taking off an egg, I never intended to use it with VGA.
