Summary: I work for a small software company as the graphic designer. I currently have 2 of these monitors, one in in landscape (Primary) and the other in portrait (Secondary). The one in portrait is where I keep outlook open all the time for quick viewing. My Primary one is where I keep Photoshop and Illustrator, with menus floating over to the secondary one (Try it if you have 2)... I print a lot of marketing material and need to have the colors I see match what I want printed.
Summary: I've owned the same model monitor for 2 years and wanted to set up the 2nd monitor option. I chose this monitor specifically for it's flexibility in relation to movement of the screen. I've got no complaints and have had no problems.
Summary: Excellent monitor. I am using it right now. Good colors, good brightness, wide viewing angle. 1080 video looks relatively sharp in full screen mode. Text a little strange at non-native resolution, but that could be my video card or driver's fault. I am happy so far. Hope that the one that replaces it is as good. If you find it somewhere as New Old Stock it is still a good buy.
Decent IPS monitor for the price but don't buy for speakers
1 May 2012
Summary: The image quality doesn't look any different than the standard TN LED monitors I am used to using. At least not for general business use. I didn't even realized these had speakers built in. It is not advertised prominently. Probably because they sound terrible. Tinny and no low end at all. Like listening to sound coming out of a cell phone speaker. I have $5 ext. speakers that sound 10 times better. One nice surprise was the articulating stand.
Summary: OK, I plugged this in and the picture looked great, a little color bleed on the letters but not bad. Used it for about week and then calibrated it with a spyder 4. After Cal the pic it almost perfect. No more color bleed on letters. As for the Cal data, I used a gamma of 2.2 and temp of 6500. This monitor gets 98% of the sRGB color space, 88% of adobe color space For the Adobe space it hits the red and blue corners but falls short on the green edge of the triangle.
Summary: This item is exactly what I was looking for: 23", IPS panel, and a swivel function. -The display is vibrant and easily adjustable. The five buttons (+1 power button) make navigating the display menus really easy. When adjusting the display it will show half the screen at the previous settings so that you can compare. This is a really nice feature when trying to find the settings you like the most.
Summary: I bought a pair of these to augment my 27" iMac. Simple, easy to set up, complete with all cables. Great picture that beats the pants off of TFT monitors that cost more. You can't beat IPS monitors and these deliver. Don't use the speakers, so I don't care about those. To me monitor speakers are all useless anyway. Only criticism I have is there is no cable management on them. Be nice to have a clip or or something to thread cables through.
