    "It used to be only the rich could afford a 27" monitor. Now, for only $160, you can snag this great display. What I like most about it is the stand; adjusting the monitor to the proper eye level is just gob-stopping simple. Sadly, the SE2717HR doesn't allow you to rotate to portrait mode, but crisp pixels make up for always being horizontal. "

    "This is a solid monitor that I don't regret buying. The clarity and size are good, especially for the price. But I don't recommend using the split screen software that comes with it - it's not really big enough for that, just go buy a second monitor. And it's not gaming-quality if you are worried about ghosting and response rate. But for an everyday monitor it should suit most people's needs."
