Good Monitor with Short Life

Joseph S., Newegg
1 week ago
  • Pros: This monitor has a great display. It is reflective, but it isn't that bothersome. The colors don't appear washed out.
  • Cons: After about a year and a half, it started dying randomly and would require replugging to start. After two and a half years, it won't come on at all. I really didn't use it much in that time, so the actual life is probably quite a bit shorter with continuous use.

An excellent monitor thus far with a nice clean look.

  • Excerpt: This monitor is wonderful out of the box. Minimal assembly is required. One tip - the button side of the base faces down for assembly. Color and clarity are very good and this is probably the nicest monitor I have seen over the years.
  • Pros: Clear And Clean Looks

Very Nice Design, Good buy under $200.

  • Excerpt: Excellent monitor in the sub-$200 range. Found a deal for $160, bargain at that price. One of the best looking monitors (Design Wise) on the market, goes with my Mac Mini perfectly. At full retail you are probably better off spending a bit more for 4K.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast

Satisfied first time customer

  • Excerpt: Really happy with the product and buying experience. Fast free shipping and the monitor works exactly as advertised. Clear crisp display, I like the light weight, easy to set up, and looks great even when shut off! Response time is a little slower than some others but I cannot tell the difference.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up

Text not very sharp

Bob, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I really wanted to like this monitor and thought I would from the god review. But, at 1920x1080 with HDMI on this 27" monitor I found-out it hurts my eye's to read text! I used it for a week and it never got easier on my eye's. I tried increasing the text size and that only made the text blurry.

IPS at reasonable cost

Gerrit T., Newegg
29 December 2015
  • Summary: I updated this review after about a month of usage.
  • Pros: This is a nice looking IPS monitor with good color and contrast. I can't say that I have done any color calibration or tests beyond the standard setup, but everything worked well. I had it setup under Linux and Windows, no issues with it being detected. Lightweight for a 27" monitor. Very thin. W...
  • Cons: There is no height adjustment, but I knew this going in. Viewing angles are ok considering it's IPS, but nothing to write home about. This is a BIG con: the driver (speak: AC/DC converter) for the LED Backlight seems to be very inferior. HP cheaped out here! If you are sensitive to flicker (like ...

Very nice for anything up to 1080p, no more

abossard, B&H Photo
27 December 2015
  • Excerpt: This monitor is a great deal for resolutions up to 1080p. I made the mistake of purchasing this product to use it with my late 2013 retina MBP and I have been very disappointed with the result.
  • Pros: Built Quality, Colors, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Screen Quality
  • Cons: Not For Retina Mbps
