Summary: First off, this is a great monitor. This review is intended to alert potential buyers that it is priced higher on Amazon than Tiger Direct (which is where it ships from if purchased from Amazon), and Amazon charges a lot more for shipping than Tiger does as well, meaning you are getting hit both on the price and the shipping costs.
Normally I am all for buying things from Amazon, even if slightly more expensive, because I appreciate their service.
- The price is very good ($439)
- The image quality is amazing
- Default settings were very good, picture quality including color and brightness/contrast were practically perfect
- On/Off and menu buttons are placed a bit awkwardly
I bought this monitor to replace a 26" LG monitor (which is now a secondary monitor on the same computer).
Summary: This is a fantastic all-purpose monitor. It's super-cheap and has full HD quality, with large pixel size.
Cons: audio output is weak/tinny, default color balance is weird, bezel is HUUUUGE (easily 1").
Summary: Well, this monitor blew my socks off. Put it on a MacMini and absolutely perfect. I bought it for my wife, who said her little 20" monitor was ok for her. Now she can't do without it. Highly recommended and the free shipping made it the best buy from all the other vendors.
