    "I bought this monitor when moving to college and it's pretty good. It's cheap and lightweight, yet reliable. Of course the quality won't be as amazing as the higher price models but for a college kid not into gaming, it's pretty good."

    "AOC makes good monitors. You'd probably never put them next to like Acer, Samsung, Sony, etc. But, for the price they are 100% worth it. You can't really go wrong if you're on a budget."

    "A great budget monitor and that isnt to call it cheap. They focus on the screen and skimp on the stand. Best bang for buck when you want to hang it on a wall or use 3rd market stands anyway."

    "This Dell monitor gets the job done. It works well enough for me as a second monitor while I'm working, as it's not big enough to be my main monitor."

    "I guess this is okay enough. Neither the cheapest computer monitor nor the best one for the price, but it functions at an okay median between each. I like it, but you might want a cheaper monitor or a better one."

    "This is a decent computer monitor for a budget price. It's not the absolute cheapest you can find, but it is about as cheap as you'll get for the specs. Unless you're wanting a super top of the line rig, which if you're looking for a budget monitor probably not, this will be a perfect monitor for you. It's not huge, but it's got more than enough screen real estate for most purposes. You probably wouldn't even notice the difference between it and a higher price monitor."

    "This monitor is not bad, but no great. 17 inch these days is a bit small for me. the colors are ok. For the price it is a great 2nd monitor for yourself. Mine seemed to have a few spots on it that don't seem to go away, but for what i use it for the price can't be beat."
