Summary: The LCD itself is an excellent LCD. It is very bright, crisp, and responsive. The packaging isn't excessive either. My only complaint is the size of the power plug. This model comes with an adapter that has a built-in transformer in the plug. As such, it is wide enough to block adjacent receptacles on the power bar. Furthermore, DVI was introduced in 1999. HDMI was introduced in 2003. This monitor only ships with a VGA cable. Why?
Pros: Bright, crisp, good viewing angle.
Cons: Only comes with a VGA cable, power adapter is large and bulky and blocks the receptacles beside it on the power bar.
Summary: Unfortunately my display had a piece of dust lodged between the display and lcd on the left side. Over the 3 months of ownership, it has slid from the top left to the center left. This is an isolated case as the other IPS234 I used didn't have this. The color calibration was off but using the TEXT calibration is good for daily use. The stand is ok for a sturdy table, which mine is... so I don't have the problem some other reviewers had.
Pros: Great colour, Great brightness (for some it may be too bright)
Cons: Default colour calibrations are off., Power adapter whines.
Summary: I received this monitor and the first thing I noticed was that the brightness was insane. If you left this monitor at stock your eyeballs would fall out. While this highlights how great the whites are, it also is painful to use straight out of the box. I received no dead pixels but did have slight back light bleeding towards the left hand corner. Overall the colours are great on this monitor but need to be calibrated for any real colour work as with any monitor.
Pros: IPS, Good colours out of the box, Fairly uniform, Low back light bleed
Cons: 6 bit IPS, No integrated speakers, Standard LCD nonadjustable base, Needs calibration out of the box (too bright)
Summary: This is my first IPS monitor and it makes my old TN LCD's look very, very dim. It has very slight colour shift, but not apparent until you essentially turn it sideways. Bright and even lit display (no bleeding of back light nor bright/dim areas). The stand is all plastic and it does wobble a bit. However my desk is an extremely wobbly antique. Yet, I can push hard my desk by a few inches without concern for my monitor falling.
Pros: Good price on sale - got mine for $139.99 boxing week sale (Dec 2012)
Summary: For 130$, this is an excellent deal. No ghosting, no input lag. Uniformity of the screen is excellent not the best nor the worst. My lower right side is bit too bright. Contrast is bit weak is you set the screen at max brightness. Need calibration for maximum contrast. Colors looks good by default. Overall that's an excellent monitor.
Pros: Price, IPS, Colors, Viewing angle, Light
Cons: Need calibration, Stand is flimsy, No DP port, Comes with a cheap VGA cable.
Summary: Got this during the Christmas/Boxing Week Sale. For its price, I think the quality is superb. Viewing angles were good and the colour was great, but calibration definitely seems to be needed. Overall, a great product!
Summary: I'm a photographer with 20+ years of professional experience. I bought two of these for critical photo editing in a studio environment based on a glowing review from PCMag. Out of the box, these are HORRIBLE. Contrast is too heavy. There is clipping in images (rolloff in whites and blacks).
Summary: The monitor is great. I upgraded from a 2006 Dell SP2009W. So needless to say taking the contrast ratio from 5,000:1 into the millions is a huge step. At first I was disappointed, but with some setting tinkering it came to life. There is apsolutely no glare and I have 4 LARGE windows to my back so constant light. My ONLY complaint, is the stand is just awful. Will it hold the monitor, yes. It is not adjustable at all and is completely made of plastic including the arm.
Summary: This is a great Monitor for Computers. Only that the buttons to activating and settings are attached down of the monitor, I think that is wrong. The whole screen is shaking when switching on. Too bad.
