Summary: I had this monitor for 4 years and 11 months. For the price, it was definitely a great value. Unfortunately, it has now died. When turning the monitor on, it will display the screen for a split second then turn black. The LED still indicates the screen is on.
Summary: I am a graphic designer and color and image quality are very important and after reading reviews of after calibration, it was a great monitor. I simply couldn't afford a 30' apple cinema display.
Pros: Huge screen, great price.
Cons: Color calibration is a downer! No OSX support/drivers, speakers aren't worth anything, bleed through on sides.
Summary: I went from a CMC/PolyView V293 19" I bought 4 1/2 years ago to this. (I think it is an MVA panel with 26mm pixel pitch) I actually wish I would have just bought a second one of those and a dual 19" stand instead of this.
Pros: Solid, well-built, inexpensive, no dead or stuck pixels on mine, stylishly designed, very bright, response time good. Arrived on-time and in mint condition. The stand has a metal base which is plenty sturdy. Pretty decent if all you're going to use it for is to watch HD content.
Cons: Low pixel density - at 27.5" viewable, 1900x1200 is difficult to adjust to coming from a smaller display with similar resolution. Standard def. content seems pixellated and 'edgy'.... anything that is scaled at all looks even more so. Requires a lot of 'tinking' to make bearable at close range. F...
Summary: I bought one of these monitors off Amazon about a year ago and it has worked fine. I love the larger pixel pitch for my old eyes. I bought a second unit a couple months ago for use at work, and within one month it stopped working (white screen of death).
Summary: I use big monitors for photo processing in a duo display mode. I have an HP 22" that came with my Media Center desktop, a 24" Samsung, and this. The Hanns G is clearly the biggest not just by the number. The picture actually is a lot bigger side by side.
