  • Its reputation for a solid build and good quality control is still intact…
  • Just stunning, buttery smooth and very comfortable to look at…
  • The wide viewing angle and pixel density make sitting close practical…
  • Having two documents or two applications running side by side is again very comfortable…
    Yann Maitre (Amazon) - January 2015
  • Excel and MS Office are almost a pleasure to use on this beast as well…
    Yann Maitre (Amazon) - January 2015
  • Do note that if you are calibrating this monitor the default position for the menu is dead centre, normally where you place the calibration tool; it is possible, via the menu to relocate the menu anywhere else on the screen which makes calibration a breeze…
  • Bad Quality Control…

Users Report That it is a Good Size

Three owners who reviewed this PC monitor thought it was thin.

  • The quality is good and solid construction, mine had no bleed or dead pixels…
  • The trim is slim…
  • Beyond the tech specs after a few months the subtle and slim trim, compared to what it replaced, is nice aesthetically…
  • Slim profile and tasteful, understated bezel with no stupid logos like almost every other monitor has…
  • It's a very sturdy, heavy base which takes up a lot of room behind…
    CC (Amazon) - July 2014
  • The only mild criticisms are the bulky stand (though this is more stable than some others)…
    Strathearn (Amazon) - August 2014
