Summary: I played around with setting endlessly on two of these. Too dark, or too washed out seem to be the choices. Terrible for looking at spreadsheets. Tends to be bad at video as well, again, being too dark and muddy or simply looking like someone cranked up the gamma. I've endured them for a couple of years but I find myself looking for deals. It's a stark contrast using any of my home monitors for the same thing.
Summary: I bought this for a new computer build on Dec. 25th. Amazon had it to my doorstep on Dec. 30th. Fast for being Christmas and all. Monitor was flawless on arrival. Plug-n-Play, no problems. Auto adjust settings worked for me. My sound hardware is no good in my current computer so I can't test the speakers, but I don't expect much out of speakers anyway as I have my own. I noticed on another website that this same monitor had a 5 star rating with over 630 reviews.
