Terrible. Do not buy. After a little over a month and a half, the monitor just randomly died on me. It was in the middle of doing work (nothing graphics intensive). There was no warning. The power just suddenly cut off. I unplugged and replugged everything and got nothing (LED indicator wouldn't even turn on). The worst part is that it that was only used maybe 5-10 times as I did most of my work at the office and used this only when I was working from home as part of a 3 screen setup. They were mounted to a heavy wooden desk and plugged into two separate surge protectors. The other monitor that was plugged into the same surge protector was fine when it died and so it should not be due to the surge protector failing or an external electrical issue.
If your monitor does work and makes it past a few month, here are some of the Pros:
The monitor itself looks really beautiful and has VESA compatibility, but you have to remove the stand first (remove back cover and then screws). The bezel-less sides are perfect for multiple monitor setups and it was priced really well when I bought it, maybe a little too good to be true. It had a DisplayPort which I thought was really nice. Unfortunately, none of this stuff matters because it died.
I think the worst part of the situation is that Amazon service was terrible in helping me resolve my problem.
The below is more on Amazon's assistance for my issue, which some of you may end up having to do if you purchase this monitor:
I used the tech repair/replace that Amazon now offers. The guy took 5-10 minutes to research that I needed unplug and replug the monitor. I almost fell out of my chair for such an insult, seeing as I told him twice that unplugged and replugged the monitor. Once in the intro, when they say describe your problem and once right after he said "Hello", as I knew he would go there. And yet, it took Amazon 5-10 minutes to "unplug and replug". He then took a subsequent 5 minutes to ask me if the LED indicator was on. This was right after I had told him that the "light indicator" wouldn't turn on. I was shocked that he couldn't connect the fact that "light indicator" refers to the LED indicator. After that, he told me that there was nothing he could do for me and that I would have to contact the manufacturer ( as it was a little over a month since the purchase and thus making me ineligible for a replacement/refund).
