I love the clean design and square screen. The monitor’s power supply is internal so there is no external “power box” to fool with. I was totally unaware that, with a machine using windows 7, my best picture calibration (contrast ratio, brightness, and color) was done using windows’ screen settings, not with the monitor. Once I modified the default values, I was amazed at the definition/brilliance this monitor delivers.
Default settings looked bad to me. Manual tweaking was necessary, using adjustments that are buried in menus. Multiple custom presets can be created and accessed only through Windows software. Pixel pitch is greater than usual, which makes text a bit larger. No bad pixels seen. The very low-quality speakers are barely audible. Video and audio cables are included. Power spec is quite low, 18.5W. Overall it's a good monitor except for the speakers.
I got this to replace my old 19" Acer monitor. Overall I'm happy with it. The internal speakers aren't as good as my old one but they will do. It was a little more expensive than I expected but I would buy it again. Hope it lasts as long as my old one.
The built-in speakers aren't very loud, but they're very clear. It's hard to find a monitor these days that isn't widescreen so I was excited to find this one, and for a very good price. It's very clear, fast, bright and doesn't distort.
