Button Gremlins

Amazon Customer, Amazon
7 July 2014
  • Summary: This was an excellent monitor for a while I even bought a second one to match the first. The buttons have stopped working and I can no longer access the menu, turn off the monitor, or switch feeds. It was an excellent monitor but at the price the buttons should not stop working for any reason.

Terrible For Gaming / Terrible Colors

Arthur Wilkinson, Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: I just purchased this monitor, and installed it yesterday. The colors are way off. Everything is too blue and I can't get it to look good with any of the presets, or by adjusting the color settings manually. The picture on this monitor is darker than my old ASUS VE247H, but it hurts my eyes more.

Not happy.

Geralt, Amazon
19 December 2011
  • Summary: The monitor has a large amount of backlight bleeding (white blurs that are visible when the screen is dark). The bezel is loose and the 3D transmitter looks lopsided. This could be from shipping or lazy assembly. My Alienware AW2310 has none of these problems.

Michael S. Matlock, Amazon
18 December 2011
  • Summary: I was VERY much looking forward to using this monitor, but it arrived to me DOA. Power light goes on, but nothing else. Of course I tried all the potential solutions: input selection, different monitor same cables, etc, but not a flicker on the screen or any noise whatsoever. Dead.

  • Summary: It was great for a few months then dead pixels appeared. For the price this should not be an issue so soon in the life of the product and i am very disappointed with it.

Poor monitor, avoid!

Conn McAteer, Amazon
3 October 2013
  • Summary: I received 2 faulty units, one with 3 dead pixels, the other with a problem displaying dark segments. Quality wasn't great, decided to go for the BenQ XL2720T instead and I'm much happier, colors are great and build quality is much better.
