Summary: The webcam and mic are a plus, and the monitor itself is quite bright and clear. I have owned this device for going on two years now. Pros: Webcam/mic big bright display. Correct absolute max brightness/contrast are 100brightness and 72 contrast. After 70-72 you will start to blow out the whites and lose color fidelity rapidly. I default the brightness at 90 and contrast at 50-64 depending on time of day.
