Works pretty well, but bezel makes some Windows 8 gestures awkward

Alberto Plantagenet, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: This is not a bad monitor, but it was produced before Windows 8 and so it wasn't made with Windows 8 gestures in mind. For a lot of Windows 8 gestures, you have to get to the very edge of the screen or start the gesture just off screen. Where the bezel is not flush with the screen, it's very difficult to make certain gestures - I don't know the goofy names for these gestures, but to get to a context menu in a metro app, you have to swipe down from the top and if you...

I had to chase a gnat down and kill it because it took a fancy to my screen and kept initiating commands on it - not kidding. Moreover, the color and the definition is absolutely beautiful.

Good but not Great Monitor

Craig, B&H Photo
13 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I use this with Windows 8. It is not Windows 8 compliant but I did not know that when I bought it. Overall, it's a good monitor. The colors are crisp and clear. The monitor was a breeze to setup and use and it came with every cable it needs and then some. I am not a fan of the built in speakers. I find them to be tinney and there is not way to tweak the audio.
  • Pros: Great picture quality, Large Viewing Area, Reliable Performance
  • Cons: Not Windows 8 Compliant, Poor Quality Sound
