I bought this as a 2nd screen for work, (it's required).
I had to make a few adjustments to make it look right on the screen.
I installed it on a swing arm to be able to adjust it, and it works great.
I bought this monitor to use as a second with my laptop for work.
For text the viewing angle is much wider.easy to setup and in a month of constant on it has not developed any viewing image irregularities.it is great as a second monitor but use the web to find out how you can best integrate it with your computer os for how you plan to use it.
They look great when new, but after a few months with these monitors, i have figured out why they were cheaper than what was available elsewhere from other brands..
It is advertised as being the same, it is very much not the same and misleading.The contrast ratio is a property of a display system, defined as the ratio of the luminance of the brightest color (white) to that of the darkest color (black) that the system is capable of producing.
I thought the first one expired due to it being dropped once, but the second one died in the same way, but with no rough handling at all, so it turns out it was the monitor that was bad.
I was able to have that first monitor replaced and everything was fine.Then I got another monitor to match my set up and it came with a dead pixel on the lower right of the screen.
So amazon gave me a $27 refund (discount) on the monitor.Still it's not what I expected and if you are looking for a monitor, just don't get this one.
