Doesn't play well with Macs, among other things

Eli, Amazon

  • 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...

Nice monitor - Ultra wide just not for me

  • 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.

Questionable quality

Travis, Amazon

  • 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.

  • Pros: Colors are vibrant, 21:9 ratio, plethora of inputs...
  • Cons: ...cant play Blu Ray movies without reducing resolution...

good ish

  • 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...

Superb - but packaging suspect

shaun wainwright, Amazon

  • Summary: Contents of the opened box seemed to be untouched, so I took the good from the courier due to young child like excitement. Set up is plug and play and unlike other 21:9 29" widescreens I've looked at that wobble about on the feeble stand following a slight nudge of the table, this monitor is spot on.
