very reflective

D, Amazon
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Size is good. But it's very reflective, especially when the screen shows dark colors. It tires your eyes very quickly. I have a Phillips matte monitor at work and it's a lot better. So if you plan to do much work on this screen, think twice. Black is not as good as my older screen, you can still see spots of light and the screen is not completely black. Overall it's not a good monitor for work.

Affordable monitor

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: I am an average computer user. Honestly, Dell/HP and other monitors at this price range...they all seem similar to me in design. It shares same color and shape.i don't see that much difference in features as well...i recommend going for the cheapest one. i wish for a better looking monitor in the future.
  • Pros: - Color

quite cheap design, flimsy, bulky stand

  • Summary: It has quite a cheap looking design. The stand also is bulky in terms of size, but flimsy as to the actual support that it provides.

Only 1920 x 1080

G. Mills, Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: I did not realize it when I bought this that it is only 1920 x 1080 which is very low for a 27" display- it is the same resolution as my 5" phone. Everything is very pixelated and the image is not nearly as nice looking as my 24" Dell displays with higher resolution. If you sit closer than 24", you can see the individual pixels with normal eye site. This monitor also has a high gloss screen if that matters to you.

Way too reflective

Erik D., Newegg
9 May 2013
  • Summary: I rarely return/exchange items, but this may be a deal breaker for me. Not sure why they couldn't have put more effort into anti-reflective coating.
  • Pros: Beautiful image and colors, nice refresh rate for IPS
  • Cons: Way too reflective for me. I underestimated the other reviews. It's like a mirror and anytime it's a darker image I see everything reflected back - and I'm not in a bright room.

Excellent product, slow shipping

Daniele, Amazon
23 April 2013
  • Summary: Excellent monitor very stylish with natural color and excellent definition. Very small pixels which make the image very uniform without granularity when used at its native resolution. Shipping was slow, it took 6 days to ship the product, and 2 more to deliver.

Good, but 1080p resolution is not enough for 27-inch display

conradb212, Amazon
8 April 2013
  • Summary: I wish I could rate this display higher because it is truly amazing how far screens have come, and how inexpensive they have become. I bought this screen because I use my netbook in my office, hooked up to an external display and full-size keyboard. That said, I didn't want to pay more for the display than I had paid for the computer itself, and that ruled out "professional quality" high-res screens.

It's ok, spend the extra cash and get a nice 1440 IPS

Jasen Hicks, Amazon
24 March 2013
  • Summary: I have two Thunderbolt Displays sitting next to this screen. While it looks nice (the packaging and casing) the image quality is terrible compared to my TB displays. The resolution is not good enough to warrant a comparison. Frankly, I would return it and just buy another TB if I could run it through my receiver for two computers to hook up to. This one will get deligated to running pandora only while I focus on my Thunderbolts and do work on them.

poca fedeltà nei colori

M.Pac, amazon.it
20 March 2014
  • Summary: Il monitor è esteticamente stupendo, il più bello tra i monitor a mio parere, va benissimo per un'utilizzo semplice come navigare in internet guardare qualche film, per l'ufficio e via dicendo, ma per una cosa molto importante come " l'Editing Fotografico " non va molto bene, avevo preso precedentemente questo modello nella versione 23" a schermo antiriflesso ed ero incappato in un problema grave, si presentava con una dominante verde che inquinava anche tutti gli altri...
