Great but was missing one part.
8 May 2011
Summary: Great monitor for the price. I bought this one thinking I could use a mount in case if I ever desided to have two or three monitors but it seams to be lacking in that department. Otherwise it works great.
Summary: Okay, so I've had this problem for a few months, and finally got annoyed enough to do some research. I can play games no problem with this monitor, but when I watch video playback(doesn't matter if it's in 1080 or 480), there's some weird things happening(parts turning white) when there's lots of...
Pros: Good color, bright whites, dark blacks. Great for playing games.
Cons: Chrome base, menu buttons, the 2ms response time does not support video playback.
Summary: I waited a long time to get this monitor to reach my price point of $200 or less. Got it for $199.99 plus free shipping. Thanks NewEgg!
Pros: Very bright and crisp with vibrant colors. Good viewing angles. Great for gaming and watching movies. I did not notice any ghosting as some others have reported. Everything I hoped for.
Cons: Touch sensitive controls are a bit hard to find but work well once the on-screen menu pops up. The included MagicBright software does not work with my Win7/NVIDIA machine... not on the compatable list. (Yes, I downloaded the newest version.) Check if you care but no big deal for me.
Summary: Monitor must be calibrated, best using a calibration device or colors will really be washed out.
Pros: Very light weight, This would be nice to pack away in my suitcase for my trip to Europe, almost half the weight of my samsung 226bw.
Cons: I noticed subtle ghosting in games. Coming from my few year old samsung 226bw, when I first played a game I noticed something wasn't right. That something I later determined was ghosting, the objects in the game seemed to have a blur to them when I moved the mouse. I then wanted to see the review...
Pros: Beautiful design, very thin and has a great amount of inputs for what I need. The display is bright but beautiful.
Cons: Perhaps a bit too bright by default? It may be resolved once I calibrate it properly. This is a TN monitor, not an IPS...I kind of wish I had held out for an IPS monitor but for the price this was a no-brainer.
Summary: Purchased two of these for my desktop to go along in Eyefinity with my 46 Samsung TV as the third. Both monitors have one DEAD PIXEL!! Personally, I like the picture of my HP 23 LCD (Glossy finish) better in some situations; small text in particular looks more sharp on the HP.
Pros: LED = Thinner, brighter and less power consumption. These monitors physically, (not the picture) look very impressive; like a high end Samsung TV. Thought the black levels would be more black..
Cons: Should prob be 1920*1200 (not 1920*1080 or 1080p). Reason for this is the dot pitch, aka pixel size is a little large. As a result small text can appear a bit blurry.
Summary: As many have mentioned the unconventional buttons are difficult to navigate. Considering how infrequently they are used after set-up I don't think it should dissuade you from purchasing this overall excellent product.
Pros: Very satisfied with the look and design. Excellent price for an LED monitor.
Cons: The color is not as brilliant as I've come to expect from an LED monitor although it is comparable to a good quality LCD. So still a great value.
Summary: Great monitor. Replaced my 19" LCD monitor which is dwarfed by this monitor. Timing was impeccable, I ordered this after Christmas and it was held up a day due to the snows on the East Cost. It was worth the extra day though.
Pros: Huge! Beautiful color. LED backlit. HDMI. 2ms Refresh rate.
Cons: Screen Controls are touchy. HDMI to DVI cable low quality.
Summary: I replaced a TEN (!) year-old Sony SDM-N80 LCD monitor with this. The Sony cost 1500 dollars back then - amazing how technology has improved. I have to say that I got very good service out of the Sony over the years, but even if you amortize the cost, that monitor still cost me 150, but with today's...
Pros: * Incredible value. For a penny less than two C-notes, it was mine, with no tax or shipping. * Huge screen, but 1920x1080 is the new standard these days, so maybe not so remarkable. * HDMI inputs, two in fact. Helps reduce cord clutter, and much better than the thick, inflexible DVI cords.
Cons: * Blue: I have run through all of the adjustments several times, but there still remains an overall sense of "blue" in the picture. I can't describe it really, because the whites look white, but the blues are ... "different". I have my Dell laptop screen and another LCD monitor alongside, and the...
