Summary: At the $169 price tag, a bit expensive for what it is. This monitor is worth every penny of $130.... Not getting ripped off at $150 -- but any higher and you can do better.
Pros: 1) Cheap.
Cons: 14ms GTG (Grey to white then back to grey again) -- This is considerably higher than most monitors. If your intentions are to game with a high end Rig and Gfx card -- don't skimp on the monitor. This monitor can play games, but you will see motion blur, etc when side by side with other monitors with faster response times.
Pros: When on sale is cheap for IPS. Very good colors. Can get sound through HDMI, via headphone jack/speaker jack on the monitor. Nice colors, blacks are good too.
Cons: If you are planning on using this for something that cuts its signal when switching (for example a PS3 and exiting out of a game to the home screen), the monitor will go into "power saving mode" you'll have to switch the input back to the correct one. (minus 1 egg)
Summary: It would just seem that for such beautiful monitors the boxing of the product could be much better.
Pros: Crisp picture, excellent picture, great product for price.
Cons: I don't normally review items I purchase, but I feel I need to. The boxing of this product is terrible. I ordered two of these monitors, and after unboxing both, I noticed smudges on both of the screens. Aside from the large plastic bag that the monitors are in, there is no actual screen protector, only peel off bezel protectors. I had to use electronic cleaning wipes to wipe off the smudges on the screen due to the poor packaging. One of the monitors still has a smud...
Pros: This screen is awesome. It has a 1080p display with IPS so it has great viewing angles. It also comes with all major ports(VGA, DVI, HDMI) and I use it for gaming as well as for my computer for photo and video editing. It's awesome.
Cons: The stand is not very stable if you move your screen or touch it but it doesn't bother me since my monitor just sits on a desk.
Pros: Not a bad monitor for the price. I'd recommend it for the money, provided you can get over some of the relatively minor issues. HDMI nice to have for the money. HDMI Audio port an interesting option for some environments.
Cons: This monitor takes 2-3 times as long as my Samsung and Viewsonic displays to start from sleep. It is long enough to make you wonder if it is working (we are talking several seconds, not mins or anything) The Red power light is bright, you can turn it off, but then combined with the long-restart you would think the monitor was off. The stand wobbles easily (not a big problem, but might speak of build quality). Finally, I think they really cheaped out by not providing a...
Pros: My cons list is a litany of issues, but most of them are actually pretty easy to cope with. In exchange, you get an eIPS (6-bit) display that, outside of the slight edge bleed, has excellent uniformity and is able to produce excellent, reasonably accurate color. Once calibrated, the IPS224V can reproduce fine detail in video very well. Very few monitors in this price range feature VESA mounting, but the IPS224V has 75mm mounting holes, making it a great choice for mul...
Cons: Calibrated color gamut is just 65% of AdobeRGB1998 and 86.6% of sRGB. Minor edge backlight bleed can be distracting. Stock stand is pretty lousy and wobbly. Wall wart power brick. Only includes VGA cable. Power LED is *bright* and blinks aggressively in sleep mode; it can at least be disabled while the display is powered on, though. Displays will blank on an all-black image, which can be minorly irritating.
Pros: Although I don't use the monitor for anything too intensive, I do play a few video games and watch plenty of movies on it and have yet to have a problem. The quality is great although I've only used the HD input and have yet to use the VGA/DVI hook ups. Very little set up was required, as well, as I haven't strayed away from the original setting at all. Definitely a solid purchase.
Cons: Delivery left the box outside of my garage (250 feet from my front door) in the rain, luckily no damage occurred!
