Super value IPS display for the technically inclined.
19 February 2014
Summary: This monitor is definitely not for everyone. The OSD and controls are quite convoluted, but once they have been mastered, there is no better valued IPS display on the market. I am using a pair of these in Extended Desktop mode through an nVidia GeForce GTX 660Ti and the refresh rates are more than...
Summary: This is a second review as it seems I cannot edit my first one. First monitor was DOA and I had to mail it back (additional $20). Second time it took 4 days to deliver the package even though Newegg's warehouse is just 20 min away from me.
Pros: Big, very high resolution, no dead pixels.
Cons: Very hot when working, inconvenient control buttons, misleading button labels. DVI input is not working properly.
Summary: Picture is bright, crisp, not a single dead or stuck pixel on either one, running at 2560x1440 on PNY Quadro 600. The stand is quite short and has no height adjustment (just tilt and swivel), but is reasonably stable and strong.
Summary: First thing I noticed when opened the box - all stickers were peeling off. Not really something you would expect from a $600 monitor. Then I tried to use it with the computer it was intended for - no signs of life. I tried connecting it through 3 out of 4 available connectors (DVI, VGA and HDMI).
Pros: Looks big enough
Cons: DOA. Red light is on but does not react to button clicks nor to any external input. Smells like something is burning inside.
Summary: 1 word of advice....before you hook this monitor up either d'ld the manual off the site or run the DVD & read the manual to learn the button functionality as they do not always follow the labeling on the monitor bezel.
Pros: Good looking, well built, excellent picture, got a perfect panel (no dead pixels nowhere, no burn in, no bright spots, no glare...absolutely BEAUTIFUL), base fit perfectly on my Interex SurgeSlayer combo surge protector/monitor stand base (yes I'm that old), colors are simply gorgeous, response t...
Cons: Stand is good overall but it has a little too much flex...this thing weighs 15 lbs by itself so this is somewhat justified & so didn't knock off anything. No paper instructions provided in the box....again nothing to knock off anything. Connections a little hard to get to (VGA, DVI-D in particula...
