Summary: You get what you pay for? I have purchased a good number of "refurbished" products and this was easily the most "USED" looking item I have ever received as refurb. I was very disappointed in the condition but happy with the product and price.
Summary: They arrived on time, looked good in the box and out. Once I connected them, installed the software I noticed one was great, bright screen, good working speakers, setting worked like they should. The other, not so good. The screen worked but was a lot more faded and less colorful, somewhat more dimmer. I tried to adjust the settings and found that some of the menu items were grayed or locked out. I tried everything to get them to work.
Summary: Good purchase, good price, awesome product. It replaced a 10 year old AG Neovo which had the hardened optical coating screen, this is not that type of monitor but very nice for what it is, the older AG was only a 17" and cost me a fortune back then.
Summary: 6+ months of use so far and the monitor is still working great. No dead pixels and quality is good. I've never had an issue with this monitor. It does take a bit to start up, compared to other brands, but that's not really a big deal. I would buy this monitor again.
Summary: amazing picture plays games well, but I use it the most for working on large spreadsheets the 24" monitor is perfect as you can use multiple windows with amazing ease. Sound is not bad for a monitor but I have speakers. I am probably going to get a second one for work.
Summary: I purchased 95 of these monitors for use in the office where I work. They were purchased in October 2010. As of March 1, 2011 we have had 11 fail in the same manner. All of them have a failure that seems to be related to the powersupply or the backlight, according to our IT department. All were purchased new. Some have failed within the first day of use others after a couple of months. They are being replaced slowly as they fail under warranty.
Summary: Used this on my Late '06 Macbook Pro as a dual monitor setup and with my xbox 360. Pro -Price -Big -Clear text -Great for editing photos due to the variations of color present Con -When i plug the audio into my macbook pro, I get this staticy noise on the moniter speakers as someone else has mentioned in their review. -Speakers are worthless. The speakers on my macbook pro are way better -The button controls are cumbersome Overall Great image quality, bad speakers.
