Summary: Good: I received this monitor today. No 'bad' pixels and arrived on time (on Sunday AM) in a secure package :) Screen is bright and colors excellent. I had no problem with the stiff tilting. I firmly grabbed it and moved it back. The monitor does not go off if I move it. Less power and heat too. Bad: Installing the drivers on the CD is a waste of time as follows: After I installed the drivers on the CD, the highest resolution was the 1366 x whatever.
I did not like the way the monitor was tilted forward
9 July 2014
Summary: I just got this monitor today. I have a desktop running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and had no problem getting this monitor to work. I did not like the way the monitor was tilted forward. I was able to remedy this by cutting a piece of wood the width of the piece that connects the monitor to the base. Then made it about 1/2" thick. I gently pushed this up under the monitor by the light and now the screen is sloped back a degree or so.
Summary: We have had this almost 2 years now and it still looks perfect. You can adjust the tilt, you just have to really "push" to adjust it. For the price, it's a great monitor with exceptional color. Would purchase again.
Summary: Everything about this monitor is wonderful. picture quality is precise. If I had any suggestion it would be that the attached cable determine the connection rather then the slow process of sampling each connection every time the computer starts.
Summary: The image is clear and sharp, and the size of the monitor is good for office use where a large monitor would be just too much. It was a plug and play simple hookup. The issue mentioned in some reviews regarding the monitor not swiveling is incorrect. The fitting is very stiff, but with some gentle pressure, it does move and loosens up just a bit. Several reviews mentioned removing the three screws in the bottom of the mount to get to the swivel mechanism.
Pros: Great colors and contrast. The viewing angle is good. Came with everything to make it work right out of the box. Wish it had a VGA output but that's not enough to take an egg. Overall a great monitor for the price.
Cons: None so far. Maybe wish the options to get the color a specific way but it already looks amazing.
