(Verified Purchase)

All 10 monitors worked as expected right out of the box. If 3 and 3/4 stars was a option I probably would have selected that instead of 4 stars. I just felt it was worth mentioning that...

Good deal (price wise
Nice build quality
The stands tilt up or down
The stands are quick and easy to setup
I purchased 10 of these monitors for the company I work for
The viewing angle is what I would consider poor. .. If you're looking from the side or from a higher position looking downwards it appears extremely washed out
