Nigel, West Midlands computer user - over

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very sharp, but the casing feels a bit plasticy and frail compared to my Samsung Monitor. Having said that. The monitor is surprisingly good for the money - sharp saturated and with excellent refresh rates consiering its size - the 1920 resolution is useful too as I can display 2 A4 pages side by side in some apps, this I find the main justification for adding such a large monitor to my computer set up.
Bad points:
No apparent height adjustment, on of switch is fiddly - just a minor grip on that issue really, setting up screen modes is very very fiddly though, though once done.

Mary, Milton Keynes

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It's a great size and very clear. The widescreen means working with multiple applications a lot easier - the main reason I bought it. It was a very good price for the spec.
Bad points:
Setup was a bit tricky. Initially I couldn't even get it to power up and was on the point of returning it. On checking the manual it emphasised to push the power socket FULLY into the screen - so you have to be a bit forceful with it and the instruction implies that this is a known problem with the product. Plus the power socket is on the underside of the bottom edge of the screen so you have to turn the whole product upside down to get the power plug in. But obviously you only have to do that once.
One other problem was that the lead supplied to connect to the computer did not fit the sockets on my computer (which is only 1 year old). Luckily I had a spare which I used instead - but would have been a problem for someone who didn't.
But once I got over the setup issues everything has been great.
