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