    "I think the best feature about the i2367Fh is the in-plane switching panel! Basically, you get extended viewing angles with this monitor, that allow better light transmission, color accuracy, and an overall more consistent image to be accessed from wherever you're viewing the monitor from. You don't have a bad angle or a screen glare with this monitor!"

    "I use this monitor every day for both work and to play video games on my computer and couldn't be happier. It has crisp colors, is easy to adjust the settings and I haven't noticed any flickering, but it can't be used with a VESA mount. "

    "Simply put this is an okay monitor, but it's bargain bin for a reason. Not really wide, not bright, and not as colorful as other actual widescreen monitors."

The screen is curved, so it really pulls you in. The refresh rate is lightning quick, too. I got a refurb, which saved me bundles, but it works as good as new! It's also great for watching movies.

    "Add this monitor to your home office and you won't regret it. It has a clear display, it's wide and fairly light as monitors go. It has the connections you want and will connect to any laptop or desktop that you would like. I wouldn't trust this for high end gaming as there may be some video lag, but the average home user will never notice that kind of lag. Overall, you'll enjoy the larger workspace on your monitor without having to shell out a huge amount of money."

    "I wish I knew what to say about this purchase - I suppose it's meh. We don't do TV in our house (at least we don't have a stand alone tv). We do have computers and stream stuff from them. This monitor was great for my office desk - but not for anything else. If you're looking for an everyday monitor, this one will work. But if you need something to watch movies on, this one is just too small. We got a big monitor (a widescreen one) and it's much better (that way the two of us can watch together!). "
