Summary: I've had this for 1 week now. It is beautiful. Picture quality is top notch. Nice amount of inputs, including 2 HDMI's. Sound is nice for a monitor with built in speakers. The frame around the screen is extremely thin.. Beautifully made. Great quality. My only negative on this is that the frame is so narrow, which is perfect; however when you turn on the monitor there is about 1/2 inch of black around the frame, which is black, which is actually a part of the frame...
Summary: Looks great, works well. And the controls are very easy. Don't even pay attention to the people who're making it sound like some sort of black magic to be able to operate. And no, I'm not a wizard, just somebody who thinks it's too easy to use for all the fuss to be made in the reviews like it's going to be an issue if you buy it, because it's not. Only prob I have or rather only worry I have is with the stand, seems a little shaky.
This is a great monitor. I purchased this for the everyday use

Summary: This is a great monitor. I purchased this for the everyday use, but I actually started gaming on it as well. If you are looking for monitor mainly for gaming, I suggest looking at a few others with a faster response time. For a everyday use, this is perfect. I had this for a few months now and so far everything is still working great. The screen doesn't reflect light, very "sexy" monitor with the black finish on the back, but its not frameless as it looks on the pic.
Good value, Great picture, do yourself a favor and buy speakers.

Summary: Super picture, and a clean look, the audio is not quite as good as the specs suggest, but can you expect from speakers mounted inside on a flat screen cabinet. $50.00 dollars cheaper than anywhere else that paid for the 2 year warranty.
Refurbished unit good value--difficult to adjust image, disappointing audio

Summary: I purchased a refurbished model to replace an older Apple Cinema monitor that went out on me. I had seen one on display in a retail store but didn't want to pay full retail price. What attracted me to the monitor was the Bang and Olufsen sound built into the monitor. In the busy store it sounded pretty impressive, but there was a lot of background noise so not a good place to preview sound quality. I also liked the clean minimal looks of the display.
Excerpt: I use the monitor for surfing, shopping, and keeping up with the real news of the day. I like the picture frame and the clearness of the picture. The only thing I have trouble with is the setting buttons are difficult to use. No manual how to use the different settings.
Summary: The screen is excellent - prefer it to my Retina display on my Mac. And it looks great with very little junk on the side. I am very surprised at how difficult it is to operate the adjustments (brightness etc). Felt like I took a trip back to the early 90's. I have been on-line trying to learn how to dial it in - but I would think at this day and age you could download a fine tune app so you could manipulate from your computer not 5 little buttons each of which do 20...
Summary: Works just like a monitor should. Has good color and no detectable blurring during game play. There is a bit of light leakage around the edges, but from what i understand that is normal for an IPS monitor. Speakers are clear but not super loud. Overall, a good purchase.
Excerpt: Great monitor...does what it is supposed to do. Nice image. Great style too for those who want a nice looking monitor to pair with a Mac Mini or other Mac desktop without paying $ just for the monitor. It isn't a Thunderbolt display but it is really nice.
