  • These monitor screens do tend to collect fingerprints and dust quite easily and they are not easy to come off with a rag as most rags can be damaging to the beautiful screen…
  • Where design is concerned…
    ZHax (Amazon) - March 2016
  • The central support column and the four legs arranged in an x shape makes it look modern and stylish, without looking tacky…
    ZHax (Amazon) - March 2016
  • He liked the sleek design and colors…
  • Reflection is pretty intense even though it says anti glare stuff on the box…
