  • Although buttons are frustratingly hidden away somewhat on the display stand, they are easily enough managed once the controls are figured out…
  • And it is a cheap monitor! The control buttons are a bit fiddly…
  • The built in menu is annoying, primarily due to controls being on the stand, below…
  • Plenty of options in the menu (but it's difficult to use because of silly buttons…
  • Black levels are not quite as dark as they could be; the speakers are weak; the navigation of on screen menus is difficult using the awkward touch panel…
  • You gets what you pay for yeah? This is awesome value for money! Good size screen, crystal clear settings straight out of the box, very easy to set up…
  • Great screen, does what it should, easy to set up and works like a dream…
  • The buttons to access the menu are pretty bad…
  • They are touch sensitive, which isn't a problem in itself.
  • At first when setting up my display it was such a pain! If your going to be using the inbuilt speakers, be sure to use your computer to control the volume because it will give you a neck ache keep looking under the monitor…
