  • Summary: Sturdy monitor with a very heavy frame. Make sure you get a straight arm hex stand .. any curve hex arm will not work with the monitor clamps. The high definition output is superb.

Excellent for software development

Jørn Andre Halseth, Amazon

  • Summary: Love the high 3000:1 static contrast on it. I have used this monitor for software development more than 2 years and I have a dual-setup. Been using these both at my previous employer and at home - since they really are high quality monitor for viewing/editing text on.

No HDCP support

MnBadger, Amazon

  • Summary: I have six of these monitors and by far my biggest complaint is that there isn't HDCP support. Without HDCP support you cannot play bluray or other copy-right protected media. The picture is amazing and the super thing bezel is the first of it's kinda.

Honest Feedback

Anonymous, Newegg
7 December 2011
  • Summary: I noticed people write reviews for things they find overpriced when they don't actually own one. That isn't helpful to anyone. If its not in your budget or you find the bang-for-buck not to your liking, just don't buy it. These are designed for VERY professional multi-monitor setups.
  • Pros: This display is designed for multi-monitor setups. If you're a gamer you won't be happy with the refresh rate but I am a business user and this works perfect for that setup. Excellent viewing angle. Good colors, though they are NOT S-IPS displays (even though some sites say they are). The are PVA...
  • Cons: Not IPS. Would of bee nice but that isn't worth an egg as what you're paying for in the bezel. You can buy three of these for $1650... Or you for all over ~$150 more you get a stand, cables, and a remote to control all three of them. See MD230X3. And you can find the MD230X3 refurbished all over ...

Monitor Resolution vs HDTV Resolution

Jamie G., Newegg
7 September 2010
  • Summary: For those who are not aware of this. A Monitor refresh rate is how many frames that can be individually rendered per second. 60hz is 60 independant frames. 120hz is 120 independant frames. HDTV's do not function in this way, or the same at least.
  • Pros: Excellent for Multiple Displays. Designed perfectly.
  • Cons: Price is higher than other monitors of this size. Unless you need the smallest bezel, this isn't worth the extra price compaired to others in the same class.

Kinda Pricey

David C., Newegg

  • Summary: "Full HD" is really just a standard resolution monitor these days. I can buy a large television for less nd get the same features.
  • Pros: Can't really see any.
  • Cons: 600 bucks for a 23 inch monitor that won't even do 3D? I see no justification. Maybe the "ultra-thin bezel".
