  • It's simple and easy to use…
    Jonah Pain (Amazon) - August 2015

  • The on board speakers are actually not that bad either, if you don't have a proper sound system then these speakers are fantastic to use, they are loud…
    Hawkins (Amazon) - July 2015
  • Joystick (used to navigate menus) is much easier to use than normal buttons in my opinion…
  • Get warm light, which comes in handy late at night to help me get my sleep…
  • The button menu under the screen (which is invisible) is very intuitive and once you get the hang of it it's quite useful…
  • Fast postage and easy to set up…
    Charlie (Amazon) - February 2015
  • Excellent monitor, easy to setup and use…
    Mr Jinal Shah (Amazon) - December 2014

    Django (Amazon) - November 2015
  • Ultra wide yet compact…
    SG BLYTH (Amazon) - August 2014
  • What doesn't help is that the stand is also short, so it's sat on a few thick books to raise the screen to a usable level…
    Alun Salt (Amazon) - August 2014
