Good Monitors - Terrible Stickers,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASUS VH198T 19-Inch Widescreen LED Monitor (Personal Computers)
First off, the monitors are great. Good clear picture, good size, etc. I'd give 5 stars based on that, BUT...
I need to mention the stickers. A "try me" sticker is on the bottom of them. I ordered two monitors, and peeling the stickers off left sticker residue all over the glossy black surface. The residue does not come off, cannot be cleaned off well without ruining the gloss black bezel, etc. The stickers are simply way too strong and should never have been placed directly on the bezel like that (plus, why put try me stickers on boxed monitors anyways?) I sent them back for a replacement hoping the new ones wouldn't have such strong stickers. I also was extremely careful at removing them, used a blow dryer to warm them up and loosen the adhesiveness, etc. One sticker came off fully without issues, but on the second monitor it STILL left some residue even after all the extreme carefulness. I'm still working on trying to carefully remove the left over residue without ruining the bezel.
So if you purchase these, be EXTREMELY careful when removing the stickers. If it leaves any residue at all, it will be a pain to remove. It shows like a sore thumb on the gloss black bezel as well.
