Summary: I bought this refurbished from Newegg. It only came with that slight annoyance I described in the cons. It was a little annoying, but after that little fix, the monitor looked pretty balanced. I kind of wish that there was a DVI port, though that's being picky.
Pros: -Nice half-inch bezel, giving it a pretty sleek look. -Solid 1080p screen, colors, and response time. -Monitor power and menu buttons are easily labelled and accessible. They're not backlit (the power button does have a light), but at least they're labelled nicely and out of the way.
Cons: -You have to insert all of your cables pointing upward, including power and display cables. It makes for an annoying first installation, but it's hardly an issue unless you're packing up and moving your gear all the time. -The screen tilts slightly down to the left. I put a tiny sticky felt pad (...
Summary: The packaging was horrible.... I was surprised my monitor was even in one piece when I saw the box. Standard box with protective bubble wrap. I am positive that during shipping everything ine the box was moving freely. Cables bag was loose against the screen with nothing to protect it.
Pros: - Monitor is in good condition no scratch or scuffs. - Colors are bright and clear. - Speaker are ok. - 2 HDMI port.
Cons: - Buttons are oddly placed. - The back button in the menu does not work. I have to turn the screen off to make the menu disappear. Not deal breaker for me.
Summary: I bought 3 of these refurbished monitors for a 3 screen setup. So far, so good. No dead pixels. My only complaint, and the only reason I docked one star is that one of the monitors came with the wrong style power connector than the monitor has. Luckily, I had one laying around.
Pros: Thin Bezels Built in speakers in case you need them Great Price
Cons: No dead pixels No marks/scuffs on screen/bezel
Summary: I bought a new one about 18 months ago; bought this refurb for the wife. Everything appeared just fine on arrival, with no dead pixels and all the necessary cables and base; however we've only had it for a day. We'll see how it holds up.
Pros: Good to very good color rendition, decently priced, small bezel.
Summary: Replaced a 19" Viewsonic I got from Newegg in 2007. Frankly, the Viewsonic still had a better picture in terms of sharpness, but the backlighting was starting to fade and whites were starting to look yellowish no matter the adjustments.
Pros: Inexpensive. It was only $134.99 on sale when I got it. Nice bright monitor and several presets which are basic but nice. The colors, once adjusted, are nice and seem very vibrant (see other thoughts below on this). For displaying pictures on web pages and media it's a beautiful display and the r...
Cons: No true HDMI or DVI connection. Text isn't sharp no matter how many times I go through fine tuning it, and I think that it's the weird connection cable (DVI to HDMI - what the hey is that all about anyhow lol) seems to hold back what the monitor could be if it were a true HDMI to HDMI or DVI to D...
Summary: I've owned 2 of these monitors for over a year and thoroughly enjoyed them. I purchased a third this week and it has been nothing but trouble, terrible washed out colors that can't be corrected from the monitors settings or my computer, and several black spots that may be dead pixels, looks almost...
Summary: I have owned this monitor since December of 2014. At the time of this review, it is late March of 2015. I use it for gaming (COD), digital art with a Wacom tablet (pictured), and as a daily computer monitor. It's VERY bright. The colors are accurate, with appropriate settings. I use sRGB.
