Contrast stinks. Avoid. Look for something with more honest (non-dynamic) contrast numbers listed.
25 March 2016
Summary: I'll try to play around with the settings. First impressions: Contrast is TERRIBLE. I purchased it as a secondary monitor to a 22" Dell I already had. I can excuse the colors looking different. That I know I can adjust (once I take the time) to make them more nearly match. But the contrast...
Summary: I am ok with this monitor. I tried to use it with a docking station initially (Plugable USB 3.0 Docking Station) and I had a black 1 inch "frame" around the picture. Lots of wasted screen. I tried the VGA and DMI cords that came with it but same effect.
Excerpt: I bought this monitor for a dual monitor setup with my iMac to help with video editing. Although the screen is about the same in size, the stand is much shorter. I am using a few books to raise the height by a few inches to get it level with my iMac.
Summary: Good for the price, $130. Not perfect. Dot crawl can be nearly unnoticeable in games or at a certain distance. I will probably replace it later if the dot crawl becomes too annoying.
Pros: Good response time. Light. Low power. Good color once tweaked/set with graphics card.
Cons: Slightly wobbly stand. It has some X patterned dot crawl that either showed up one week in or i just noticed. Happens on any input and if you move the monitor back and forth on the stand. osd says vs228h instead of vs228h-p
Summary: Who still put physical buttons on a monitor? The OSD is clunky. When my system turns off the display for sleep they don't go to sleep, instead they turn on blue for 10sec and then turn off for 20sec.
Pros: The picture is great, I have 2 in a dual display setup.
Cons: It still has physical buttons and the firmware sucks
