  • With its semi matte finish it is great to use in daylight, without the need to close curtains…
    Morgan (Amazon.co.uk) - November 2014
  • The on-screen controls are a joy to use and are not confusing in the least…
    Morgan (Amazon.co.uk) - November 2014
  • The stand twist for orientation is a good idea and the easy to use buttons on the monitor work well…
  • 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…
  • In most practical uses is not that much of a hindrance…
  • 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
  • The second issue might be a deal breaker for some, especially those who are intending to use this monitor for photography, which requires great colour accuracy…
  • The default setting in the custom menu was almost spot on accurate - calibration barely made any visible difference…
    QT (Amazon.co.uk) - January 2016
  • With 32" feels a lot more comfortable use…
  • Internal power supply is handy as no power brick to hide…
