Capacitive touch controls are annoying. It is difficult to locate each button and reliably activate them. Stand is wobbly...

Inexpensive, decent display
Nice color, and sharpnes. Good blacks. Not much light bleed at the edges. Pretty good for 130
VGA and DVI input only; no HDMI. Includes VGA cable only
The "buttons" for the menu are poorly labeled and finicky. I put a post-it note below them and made my own labels
