2 Faulty Monitors and the WORST customer service I have ever experienced.

Lauren, Amazon
8 October 2014
  • Summary: I ordered this monitor excited about an alternative to the Apple Thunderbolt display. Like a previous reviewer, my monitor was DOA with a blue light indicating that it was on but the screen was not working.

Excellent display with a fatal flaw!

9 July 2014
  • Summary: I've used this Planar monitor for one day and that was enough for me to decide to return it (thanks to Amazon excellent return policy that part was hassle free). First the good things- the display is excellent both in terms of built and image quality.

Simply the best I've seen ever.

  • Summary: Just received this superb monitor, hats off to AMAZON for their speedy delivery even if it was @$170, but 2 day from US to AUSTRALIA is fantastic. Don't look elsewhere, stop reading and buy this monitor. Nothing else comes close.

Great image but does not wake up from sleep

David, Amazon

  • Summary: The image is really good on my macbook pro (early 2011 model, connected through display port; could not try HDMI and VGA didn't work). The colors and the sharpness seem as good as on my 2013 iMac 27". This monitor is also aesthetically similar to an iMac.

Beautiful to use and to see...

  • Summary: I spent quite a bit of time researching options for monitors and decided that an IPS higher resolution monitor was the way to go as I use my computer for illustration and design as well as music production. What I love most about this monitor is the look and feel.

I Love This Monitor!

Robert Slone, Amazon
26 March 2014
  • Summary: I had been longing for a larger, brighter, more detailed monitor than my old Samsung and Dell 1080p models. It took some time to acclimate to the sticker shock for a 27" IPS model, which gave me plenty of time to research the alternatives. Tom's hardware has an excellent review on this monitor [...

Apple monitor without the Apple? Not quite.

B. Cinman, Amazon
12 December 2013
  • Summary: This monitor intrigued me because it uses the same lamination process that the new iMacs use to fuse the glass with the LCD panel. This process results in a much more vibrant and clear image than the semi-gloss coating that other manufacturers use (Dell, Asus) and results in greatly reduced glare...

Stunning Monitor

DeaninVA, Amazon
12 December 2013
  • Summary: I read about this monitor in a computer equipment review site, called Tom's Hardware. They wrote that the clarity was so high, a new category was needed. This is true. This is stunning, beautiful, and has lots of space. I am using an Apple Mac Mini with it.

high pitch noise

hyperisk, Amazon
12 December 2013
  • Summary: High pitch noise makes me nervous and dizzy. Excellent picture quality does not matter. Since other people also mentioned the same issue, I will simply return this and order a similar one from other manufacturer.

Screen looks great, 9000Hz power supply squeal

Mitch, Amazon
12 December 2013
  • Summary: I purchased two of these monitors. Upon unboxing the monitors I was immediately struck by the unimpressive packaging. The monitors I'm used to usually come with a soft foam sheet taped for the face to protect from bouncing around in the box, these were in a simple plastic bag.
