I view these mostly straight on, and from where I sit, the screens are evenly lit. Sitting any more than about 15 degrees off center, you can start to see the screen change. I do not use the speakers so have nothing to say about them. Not a single dead pixel is an added plus.
All in all, these are simple monitors that don't break the bank, but provide plenty of screen real estate in a reasonable footprint. I find that these help to reduce the eye strain I had been dealing with using the smaller 20" + laptop monitors.
Also, I got these on sale - They were just shy of a buck forty each with free shipping, so the price was right.
-No dead pixels.
-Large work area (I upgraded from a 17")
-VERY bright, i had to turn down the brightness to 30%.
-Easy menu navigation.
-SUPER thin and light, it's amazing!
-Nice clean design.
-Energy efficient! :D
-Poor speakers, but i use external ones anyway.
-The stand is a bit thin, may wobble if you have a shaky desk.
-1920x1080 supported but make sure you graphics card can do it, I had to tweak my GMA945 for it ot work.
Overall very good for the price, would buy again.
Opened the package and here are some bullet points:
* Price Price Price
* Clean bevels makes it look very nice on your desk
* Speakers are hidden so it doesn't look bulky
* Basically....it looks good off.
* Colors look washed out especially blacks (even when trying to change the settings with contrast or turning the brightness down it just ends up looking worse.)
* Doesn't come with a DVI cable
* Controls are awkwardly placed behind the monitor
* Wobbly Stand
* Monitor Height is only about 3.5/4 inches off the table so you'd have to get a table top if you're going to want it higher
* Color Shifting- Just moving left to right on my chair i can see tint shift in white to yellowish
* No HDMI - But i didn't expect that on a budget monitor anyways
In short for people still on conventional TFT-LCD /TN/CRT monitors you will see a difference in Clarity but its nothing to write home about with this specific unit. If you just need a monitor for general browsing and nothing like photoshop/design/photography then its a good monitor with the $120 price point.
Id probably go with a 23" HP LED X Series if i had to pay more, i saw it in store and the colors were much much richer. Hopefully this helps some of you guys.
Some persons have made comments about the stand being a little flimsy, but not an issue if on a firm desktop surface. Didn't give it 5 stars and won't until I see how it holds up after a couple of months.
First impression is a very good one and is probably worth the normal selling price although
I got it for 99.00 on the deal.
BTW, I purchased an Acer A231H at staples the day after Christmas and took it back the same day because it worked for about 8 seconds and the screen went blank. Even took a couple hours to try to tweak my system but no go. Clerk at Staples even said they were "hit or miss" avoid that one and get this one.
