Good simple basic screen
on December 8, 2016
The most important parts are fine: the case is rigid enough, the swivel tilts enough, all the pixels light up. no flicker that I can notice. I tried the built-in speakers for giggles; they are pretty dire as expected, but they should be serviceable enough if you just need to hear the system beeps and so on.
The backlight seems like it may not have been the best match for this panel, this display really likes to wash out the blacks. It took a fair bit of mucking with OS settings to tame it into something I can live with, but it was possible to get there. I was left with the impression that the color temp and so in in the monitor's own settings didn't have much basis in reality.
The unit is lightweight, handy if you want to raise it on a small stand. This monitor does have an option to turn off the power light, super helpful because it's the eye-searing blue LED variety, and now I don't need to resort to a Sharpie or tape. Nit: the button labels on the front are a little too subtle, figuring out what the buttons do will be a new adventure every time (most monitors seem to share this quirk).
