paired with the excellent pricing for a monitor this size
December 14, 2017
I bought this monitor to use with my new MacBook Pro 13" laptop- when I want a larger screen or am working on projects for my graduate school program, it will be very helpful. I have standard Dell 24" dual monitors at work, so I'm relatively familiar with the size, and I was intrigued by the Eye Care tech on this monitor- the anti-flickering and the low blue light, paired with the excellent pricing for a monitor this size. I should also note that, because I work on computers most of the day, I also usually wear special computer glasses (Gunnar brand) that reduce blue light- however, I was hoping I could leave those glasses at work if this Eye Care tech was all it was supposed to be.
So far (limited use over the past couple weeks), this is a fabulous monitor. I do not use it for gaming, and I won't be using it for graphics work, but I personally wouldn't have a problem with either of those things on it, regardless of specs. The multi port adapter with my macbook works really well- just plug it into the laptop and close the laptop and its automatically on the monitor. The display is bright and crisp, and I only notice a difference from my laptop because that is a Retina display. This is an excellent monitor, I really like the very slim bezel around the top and sides, and its very lightweight (to be expected) and unobtrusive. I have also noticed that I have less eye strain using it without my glasses than I have using a normal computer without my glasses- something that makes me very happy. This means I can leave my computer glasses at work, and not have to transport them everywhere. I actually noticed very little-to no eye strain when using this monitor.
I have not yet played around with its settings. As I am using it with a Mac, I know it works a little differently- I don't believe there is a specific driver for it on an apple machine.
