Summary: This is my first experience with IPS monitors. Other reviews say these monitors are a must for true colors on photographs. I rated this 4 of 5 stars becuase this monitor is doing exactly what other positive reviewers have said, but it's not wowing me. 5 have dual monitirs set-up with the other being a very good looking HP. This monitor does not look nearly as nice as the HP, but does what it supposed to do. I used it also to play some games and it works good.
Summary: It didn't say IPS on the box so I was a bit worried. But I hooked it up and it worked great! I'm not a hardcore gamer/artist/movie person but I do like to draw or edit my photos on photoshop occasionally when I have the time. I used to do those on my macbook but it always bothered me that I would get different colors depending on the angle of the screen, but now I don't have to worry about that :) Plus great price for a IPS screen.
Pros: Monitor is slim, fairly light, and was just a plug & play job to install/set up on my PC. Image is clear & crisp, colour resolution is excellent, contrast is spot on, and the response time is quick enough that no ghosting/blurring occurs.
Cons: The base is either a little narrow, or the connection between monitor & stand isn't the most secure, as the monitor wobbles a bit. That may also be down to the build quality of my desk!
Summary: After about a month of working on this monitor I have realized that this is one of the best purchases I have made monitor wise. I have compared this monitor to 2 other monitors both being TFT type and this monitor really does show the shame in the older technologies. Pros- Price and price. This monitor being on the bottom end of IPS panels is much better at color accuracy than a lot of $300 and $400 panels.
Summary: I bought two of these monitors about three weeks ago. One of my two older 20" displays on my Mac Pro died. So I decided to sell the remaining Apple 20" display and buy a matched pair of 1080p LED displays. Unfortunately, there's no way to really know what you're getting online. Lots and lots of googling, browsing every online shop that sells displays, looking looking looking. Finally I decided to give these ones a try.
Summary: This is one of the newest monitors as of March '12 and it is apparent the cost of IPS monitors has dropped. Compared to IPS competition, this is dirt cheap. And quality (apart from cheapo stand) is very good with good color and sharp text. First thing I did was update driver and install a profile I found from another reviewer here. The 100% brightness setting out of the box nearly burned my retinas it was so bright. I turned it down to about 40.
Summary: Goods: -Great price for an IPS monitor -Good horizontal viewing angles, as expected from an IPS -Crisp picture -Control menu has a lot of options -Very lightweight -Power light can be turned off in control menu Bads: -Backlight issues with dark backgrounds (see below) I really wanted to like this monitor - it's an outstanding price for an IPS panel of this size. That's what hooked me into trying it out.
Summary: This monitor was for a friend, but here's how I played with it: She's a true beauty, but not right out of the box. For me some software adjustments were necessary. Since at maximum brightness, the factory setting, the shadow detail was blocked up, I'm giving it the "4". So, remembering how great the monitor is, here are the flaws: No gamma control (but you can the video card's software).
