Two customers who bought this PC monitor considered that it was heavy and bulky.

  • Nice thin bezels…
    Whippy (Amazon.co.uk) - December 2014
  • The stand is sturdy, has a reasonably small footprint which mainly sits behind the screen and it's fairly heavy so it balances well…

    M. Burns (Amazon) - April 2015

  • Cable management hole on the stand makes thing easy to tidy, monitor is sturdy, rotates 90 degrees to pivot…
  • Small enough to allow for smooth text and graphics, yet large enough to offer 32 inches worth of working space (diagonal…
    Nikos (Amazon) - October 2015
  • The screen itself is beautiful to view…
    Morgan (Amazon) - November 2014
  • Awful connection design…
  • Beautiful monitor…
  • With the ability to swivel the monitor into portrait mode it makes a great monitor for design work and there is plenty of adjustment for height…
  • Gorgeous bright display…
  • Maybe 2 years old now and pretty pleased, great picture…
    VFRMark (Amazon) - January 2015
  • Maybe 2 years old now and pretty pleased, great picture…

  • What ever happened to brightness dials? No need to press several buttons, just turn a dial till things are comfy…
    Whippy (Amazon.co.uk) - December 2014
  • In most practical uses is not that much of a hindrance…
  • With its semi matte finish it is great to use in daylight, without the need to close curtains…
    Morgan (Amazon) - November 2014
  • The on-screen controls are a joy to use and are not confusing in the least…
    Morgan (Amazon) - November 2014
  • Could only recommend it if you plan to use it to its full potential…
  • Internal power supply is handy as no power brick to hide…
  • The default setting in the custom menu was almost spot on accurate - calibration barely made any visible difference…
    QT (Amazon) - January 2016
  • Colours seem vibrant and to my eyes quite true to life on the "STANDARD" (Colour temperature) setting, there are 7 settings and a user defined one if you want to play with it…
    N. J. Holms (Amazon) - January 2014
  • The stand twist for orientation is a good idea and the easy to use buttons on the monitor work well…
