    "This is a decent brand, and the features of this particular model of monitor seem great for this price. The design, with limited frame to get in the way, is really nice looking and should be well suited to buying multiple for a setup. The low price also makes buying multiple monitors possible as well."

    "I purchased one of these monitors a few months ago. I love it. The picture is amazing. The colors are crisp and clear and looks fantastic overall. The sound is something I wish could be improved on. There's a built in speaker but the placement of it is middle-back so it can sound obstructed from time to time however if you have external speakers, you will be fine. I thought the price was right for this as well. Is it perfect? No but it works well, it looks good and it suited my needs just fine. "

    "This is a great widescreen computer monitor for the price. While I would not say it is the best that I have ever used, in terms of price it is a steal. If you are looking for a great deal I would highly recommend this monitor. I have been using it for four months and have had no problems with it. If you have additional cash to spare you might want to go a little more expensive. "

    "I like the widescreen monitors, but they need to be really clear because they are up close to my face on my desk. My eyes hurt when monitors have blurry text or graphics. I like very high resolution. This one suited my needs pretty well for the price. I would like a very high end model that is super clear, but those cost as much as a tricked out gaming computer."

The monitor looks nice, not cheap looking, quality is there and the only con I can find is that you can not adjust the angle of the screen, it is in a fixed position I picked up a cheap riser to place the monitor on and it fixed that issue."

    "I didn't expect to hate curved screens as much as I do. I've always regarded the Samsung curved televisions with some curiosity, but I haven't needed a new TV. When my old monitor crapped out, I bought this, and man does it ever suck. The viewing angles are bad, the color depth practically isn't there, and the glares! If one side catches a glare, it reflects it onto the other side. This is going back."
