ummm... kinda nice

Don E., Newegg
27 November 2012
  • Summary: Overall its a good deal... I don't care about stand quality as others stated because I don't plan on moving it much, but I wouldn't dare pay the current newegg asking price, just wait for another black Friday deal
  • Pros: Awesome price - purchased new online from another retailer during black Friday event for $200, Enjoying the brushed metal style base, large, thin, and light weight
  • Cons: I'm using a dual monitor configuration, so it sits next to a nice glossy HP 25". It only looks a hair larger than my 25". Bright and faded out of the box but a lil calibration fixed it mostly, I didn't have to do so much work with my 25". I couldn't get it to match the vibrant colors of my gloss 25"

Good monitor; adding to old review

Paul C., Newegg
11 November 2012
  • Summary: Wish it had the vertical viewing angle that it states.
  • Pros: Good looking monitor. I like the brushed metal finish look of this compared to the shiny black polished look you get from other monitors. It's bright and colorful. Great horizontal viewing angle.
  • Cons: I do notice that the vertical viewing angle is pretty bad; definitely not 160° as it states. Once you start to go below the screen at about 45° to center line it gets that negative look to it.

Thien N., Newegg
16 October 2012
  • Summary: I own 3 of this one. Pretty good for watching movie and playing game with high res.

  • Cons: Cheap stand. Color seems to be somewhat washed-out. Need heavy calibration.

Great monitor, only one small issue

Paul C., Newegg
16 October 2012
  • Summary: Great monitor. Only docked an egg for the low volume output of this thing.
  • Pros: Great picture with LED. Says it's only 250 cd/m2, but is much brighter than my old Sony with 300 cd/m2. Nice and big.
  • Cons: Not really sure why, but the sound through the headphone output is low on this monitor compared to my old monitor. The old one was on par with the direct output of my computer, but this monitor I have to turn the speakers up twice as loud to get similar volume. I would just turn up the monitor vo...

Sorry N egg

Joshua C., Newegg
19 August 2012
  • Summary: for under 300 i think it's a good deal. Nice physical buttons on buttom of monitor easy to use. All games look smooth havent had any screen tearing. I don't know thats all obviously wish it was higher res but great for what i needed. I haven't switched my monitor to my big screen since i got this.
  • Pros: First off i bought this for mostly gaming and it seems to be exactly what i wanted, a nice big monitor with decent resolution. I bought it from a retail store and they had it for a really good price that i couldn't pass up. Right out of the box a little bright but nothing that can't be fixed with...
  • Cons: None. It's big and games look very nice especially Skyrim and Maxpayne.

  • Summary: Got this to replace a 21.5inch 1080 monitor I had before it. 21.5 inches is a little too small for such a large resolution to me. Since the monitor is so thin and light I think they got away with a little bit of a cheaper stand for it, it works well though.
  • Pros: 1080 resolution, thin, LG, got it at another retail store for $270, no dead pixels.
  • Cons: Menu is a little weird, wish their was 1 more HDMI, but that seems about par with other monitors.

Nice upgrade

Randy M., Newegg
9 July 2012
  • Summary: For the price I paid for this monitor I am more than satisfied, going from a lower res LCD screen to this 1080p LED screen is just awesome. With that said, I don't think I would pay the price on Newegg for this screen, despite how nice it is.
  • Pros: Got an amazing deal on this monitor, between an open item discount and store remodel discount, I picked this screen up for only $180. I was wanting to buy an IPS panel instead, but for the price I can't complain. Unlike other reviewers my monitor does not have a single dead/stuck pixel, and video...
  • Cons: Not an IPS panel, does not support 2560x1440.

Poor Quality Monitor

Feliks P., Newegg
8 July 2012
  • Summary: Buy something else. There must be a reason why this monitor is 299 at retail.
  • Pros: Pretty big, thats about the only pro.
  • Cons: Flimsy. Bought from a retail store knowing there would be a dead pixel or something else. First one had a nice white pixel on the right side. Got an exchange, second monitor had a nice green one right at the center of the screen. Its amazing how in this day and age they make so many great and com...
