Summary: I'm quite pleased with this monitor, its a definite upgrade from a 14 inch laptop monitor. I have 2 of them set up on my desk, and they rock as a dual monitor setup through an Anker docking station and it rocks! The only gripes I have (not that big of a deal) are 1) It doesn't have the ability to rotate the base of the stand- I have to physically turn the screen. And 2) The cable management system on the back is insanely difficult to open. I literally had to pry it open.
Summary: After more than a decade, my trusted Sony SDM-S73/B was starting to show its age. For too long, I was willing to put up with its slow response time and obsolete geometry because it was a solid, reliable PC monitor and it looked great on my home desk, with its total black and clear-cut design. Yet, all good things come to an end. After a number of warning flickerings, I realized the end was nigh. It was time to find a replacement.
Summary: The saturation is a little elevated. And no matter how much you play with the RGB settings, it won't get 100% right. And, there isn't enough Gamma, so the blacks are too dark. But, that's to be expected from an LED monitor. Other than that, the clarity is very respectable, for the price. The swivel function is perfect for surfing the web, or viewing portrait oriented images!
Summary: Good, but no real VESA mount. I guess it is some sort of vesa mount, but some kind of slim something or another that made it a real pain in the butt to hackjob it into a standard vesa. however, hack job was successful and it does work. Display wise, I use this next to a 27" imac display because the colors and contrast are actually somewhat close.
Summary: We love the new screen. I currently use it with my mac mini & it is as clear as my 55" Samsung 8000 television. Definitely worth the cost. The swivel is quite cool, though I really keep it in a horizontal position.
Summary: Bought this for my husband because his old monitor died on him. It's incredibly bright and sharp I especially love the cable management built into the stand itself so that the wires our out of the way. It's very stylish looking and created a lot more space on my husband's desk. It even came with an HDMI cable! highly recommended!!
Summary: Because of desk space, I use this monitor as a secondary monitor in portrait position beside a monitor of the same size in landscape. This is an usual setup, but it is actually great. The display on this monitor is wonderful. You won't be disappointed.
