Cons: The Display port connection to the monitor is really shoddy. It takes barely a tap, and the display port connection drops, causing my dual screen set up to shift all around. It could definitely be done better.
Summary: There are a lot of glowing reviews of this monitor, and I don't necessarily disagree with them, but I experienced a number of problems with it, and would like to share them. First, it didn't work with my MacBook over DisplayPort. The picture was grainy and oversaturated. I sussed out the cause of this problem, and the fix was tedious - involving applying an ugly hack to OSX that causes it to switch from YCbCr to RGB (if you're experiencing a similar problem, google...
Summary: The first unit I received was completely dead and wouldn't power on. Upon inspecting the bezel I found a lot of gaps and non-flush plastic that could easily be squeezed back into position. I didn't really know if these issues were specific to my non-working unit, so Amazon happily and quickly sent out a replacement. Unit #2 powered on right away but I noticed the same quality issues with the bezel and other plastic parts.
Summary: I hesitated to only give this monitor 3 stars, because it's really better than that - but only if it's right for you. And for me, it wasn't. I certainly understand that that is hard to know until you try one, so i'll provide my impressions, and maybe that will help. First, i was looking for a wide screen monitor to replace the dual 4:3 monitors i was using before.
Summary: I got this monitor to complement my venerable Dell 2405FPW (which I have been using for over 6 years!) in a dual monitors setup. If you haven’t seen this thing in person, you’ll be shock how wide and narrow it is. Pictures or even YouTube videos of this monitor won’t lessen the system shock; especially if you’re coming from a 24”+ 1920x1200 monitors. It’ll will take some times to get use to. Personally, I think 29” for a 21:9 monitor is too narrow.
Pros: Inexpensive Vibrant Color Various Calibrating Options
Summary: The sizes of each pixel is quite big for my taste. Suddenly the anti-aliasing of graphical elements become plainly (or painly?) visible. Too big for my taste, but also my fault for ordering a monitor this size with this resolution. As the other commenter has mentioned the shape of the screen is too wide for it's supplied foot so that the monitor does indeed wooble when the table moves. If the table doesn't vibrate the monitor stays stable, too.
Summary: for £300 you really shouldn't complain about this monitor. It does what it says on the tin and is an excellent price. but I should point out its poor speakers which are very quiet at times even sitting a few foot from it. ( I've since bought separate speakers) also i'm not in love with the aspect ratio i've came from a 28 inch monitor that had greater height but lower width perhaps ill get used to this but it was very difficult to find a monitor that was the same as the...
