Summary: I've got two of these that purchased at the Black Friday sale. For $150 a piece these are an absolute steal. I use two 8-bit IPS panels at work (HP can't remember model). They have better back-lighting, and slightly better colour (little more neutral). However, for home use these are perfect and can't complain given the price. I would say this is the best value monitor out there.. seriously. One has slightly more bleed than the other, and both came with zero dead pixels.
Pros: - Good Colour, - Fast enough response (no ghosting that I can see), - Stand is nice
Cons: - No HDMI, - Internal Speakers (might as well use a tin can), - Lack of cable management
Summary: Watching shows or movies on this is great. have to get really close before i start to see any of the grains. Originally bought this when it was on sale but price has come down to when i got it on sale.
Pros: Crisp & very Bright had to turn down was too bright., Like the high adjustable stand.
Summary: This monitor had everything I was looking for when I purchased it. However it is not perfect. Pros Tilt, swivel, and height adjustments IPS display (technically it is E-IPS) 16.7 million color display (it is not 8-bit but technically "6-bit + Hi-FRC" Stands out well, not too extreme or flashy Great price if you shop around Cons I don't really like the LED lighting. It makes all black screens have a bit of a blueish glow to them.
Summary: We have about 25 of these monitors in our company. I'm using 3 at once right now (2 vertical and 1 horizontal). The pivot is absolutely amazing. The picture quality could be better, and it is a bit dark looking at the monitor from wide angles, but you wouldn't get this effect while sitting at a desk. In fact, we prefer that it darkens on wide angles so that other people in the office can't see your screen too easily :) Price is great, and they look great together.
Pros: price, pivot, small stand, reasonably thin bevel
Cons: picture quality code be better, hard to see on angles
Decent IPS monitor for the price but don't buy for speakers

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: When it comes to electronics and certain products I like to wait a while before offering up my review just to make sure I've shaken out as many of the gremlins as I can during regular use. I've had this monitor for just shy of a year and I am actually surprised there weren't *more* gremlins with it.
