Pretty / short life

michael m., Newegg
10 November 2014
  • Pros: Good appearance - almost Apple-like to go with my Mac Mini Good color rendition Would make a good (if expensive) IKEA furniture prop!
  • Cons: Dead in 18 months! When waking up from sleep, it had been requiring me to power it off & on again for maybe 6 months. Today it's just dead (on 3 different computers). The power light lights up when plugged in, but that all.

Resolution is terrible. Type and images look pixelated

  • Summary: Resolution is terrible. Type and images look pixelated. Everything gets scaled up and blown up. This product is a scam. No mac software available. Completely no control of any functions. I want my money back!

I bought this mainly as a PC & console gaming monitor but was disappointed.

Cecilia M., Newegg
7 June 2014
  • Summary: These are my main problems with this monitor 1. No color saturation option I think most monitors always have a color saturation option, this monitor doesn't. I have an old AOC 720p 19" monitor that has a color saturation option with a slide bar where it let's you change the image color from...
  • Pros: - slim - light weight - doesn't get burning hot, only warm - 27" is noticeably a lot bigger compared to 19"
  • Cons: - weak color reproduction, low color saturation - no color saturation option - power cable input in back of monitor gets loose causing monitor to turn off - reflective screen (liquid crystal display) - no speakers or headphone jack input - 7ms for gaming isn't as good as 5ms and below I bought th...

Poor Picture

Lucylou7000, Hewlett-Packard
27 April 2014
  • Summary: This monitor does not have a sharp picture at all. I find it cloudy and no matter how much I adjust the settings it is a dull picture. Reading the other comments on this site I am starting to wonder if we are talking about the same monitor.

A disappointment

HoosierProud, Hewlett-Packard
13 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought this monitor to replace my existing HP 27" monitor that stopped working. This new model is much less bright and the colors are drab and dingy. I have tried several different settings and have not found any that come close to being adequate.

Not for videos and photos

Elaine K., Newegg
30 September 2013
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: I'm a photographer/videographer and I need a monitor that can at least render accurate color range. After reading the glowing reviews, I was excited about this monitor until I actually saw it for myself. So disappointed. Unless this was a faulty monitor, it's performance was well below par. Very ...

Mala resolución

Fernando Tena Barea, amazon.es
13 April 2015
  • Summary: Es un monitor bonito, si, pero además de que los acabados no son buenos, la resolución de la pantalla deja mucho que desear. Tengo mas calidad de imagen en la televisión, de 40 pulgadas y teóricamente misma resolución que en este monitor de 27. No lo recomiendo para nada.
