Best monitor ever

Steven H., Newegg
15 December 2013
  • Summary: I would like to point out that if you don't have a monitor/TV that does true 1080p but have your resolution set to 1920x1080 anyways and switch to a monitor/TV that does like this one, you might have to change your graphics settings to "Overscan" under Scaling Options.
  • Pros: It's very very thin. It's very very light. It's very shiny. It's actually 1080p. It's the best monitor I've ever purchased. I know it's refurbished, but it might as well be new. I intend on making it last a long time. I've been wanting a 1080p monitor for a long time and finally got one. And I'm ...
  • Cons: It no longer exists on Newegg.

Disappointed

Noble M., Newegg
1 December 2013
  • Pros: It was a good monitor. Not high end but for average use it was good
  • Cons: After about 9 months, I noticed the corner of the monitor screen was displaying a bit lighter. Now over 15 months, it has gotten bigger and worse. I'm disappointed this happened after 9 months and not sooner so I could have gotten a replacement. I'm leery getting another monitor b/c I expect to b...

Product not correct?

Brett N., Newegg
10 May 2013
  • Pros: It is an ok monitor but the product is wrong...
  • Cons: I purchased 2 of these monitors, one from the store and one from newegg.com The one from the store is perfect the picture is crystal clear no complaints there. So I decided to order a 2nd one to match it. I got it in the mail and the picture doesn't even come as close as the one I purchased from ...

Meh!

Burt B., Newegg
17 April 2013
  • Summary: Radion HD 6450 may be my issue. I am having better luck with the HD 6570. HD 6450 has the specs to support the monitor but best I can pull is 1600 x 900 without squishy icons and unreadable text.
  • Pros: Fits on my desk. Replaces florescent tube 23" V-Sonic. Slightly larger screen, same space taken up, no warm up time required.
  • Cons: Crummy picture out of the box. Still messing with settings. Touch buttons too sensitive, gives unwanted results. On screen menu hard to fuss with because of touch button issues. Shared on two computers, works better with Radion HD 6570, Radion HD 6450 does not recognize monitor even though Windoz...

Looks okay on Windows 8, horrible on Mac OS X

Amazon Duck, Amazon
31 March 2013
  • Summary: I don't know why but on Mac OS X everything looks so washed out, and horrible. It doesn't look as bad on Windows. Nonetheless, in both cases the viewing angle is extremely narrow. Not recommended.

Very nice but noticiably preowned, bad rebate

Albert N., Newegg
27 March 2013
  • Summary: I've purchased refurbished items in the past and they always looked as if they were brand new. It doesn't take away from the monitor's quality or use but it's a bit of an eyesore. I'm truly not surpised I never got my rebate as these things are always a huge hassle.
  • Pros: The image quality is fantastic via HDMI (I have not tried other connections).
  • Cons: The bezel has several scratches on the front that were very apparent right out of the box. This is the risk you take with refurbished but since other reviews said this wasn't an issue I took a chance. Doesn't affect quality but I thought it was worth mentioning. Also, I was supposed to get a $10 ...

Not a fan of soft touch buttons.

14 March 2013
  • Summary: My cats will lie down in front of the monitor and inadvertently press up against the soft touch control buttons in the lower right corner of the monitor. I never know what will happen.

Save your money!

Anthony M., Newegg
9 March 2013
  • Summary: I picked this display up at costco for 130 bucks, and I was going to buy the same one here on newegg. I'm glad I didn't, because I'm taking this pathetic excuse for a display back first thing in the morning. I hooked it up and started doing basic things.
  • Pros: Bright screen, thin, great design
  • Cons: Bad picture quality, pixelated, no DVI, hurts eyes
