Patrick, East Grinstead

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
- Three inputs (I used them all to connect 3 computers to the same monitor, without using any external switch so as to maintain the best image quality possible).
- Awesome image quality.
Bad points:
- The connector for the sound is not accessible from the front, so it's hard to temporarily connect a headset to the monitor.

Charles, Lowestoft Retired computer professional

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This is the only 28" monitor that I know of with 1980x1200 resolution.
Bad points:
Awkward controls, hard to see which does what. Also cable plugs situated at the bottom of the monitor rather than the side, making access difficult.

Graham, Berkshire

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A great monitor for the price. Nice and large, higher than "HD" res all for less than £200!
Bad points:
Not the most colour accurate if you're into professional photo editing etc. but for anyone else I can't fault it. You will need to fiddle with the settings a bit to get colour balance and contrast looking more natural but it's not that hard to get a setup which is good enough for everday use and gaming.

Andrew,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It's big, clear, bright and good enough image quality for my purposes (architectural design work) I can't get the colours exactly matched to my Dell laptop, not as saturated, but then maybe it's the Dell that's not accurate.
Bad points:
The buttons underneath aren't ideal - you can't see the buttons to turn it off - but this is not really a problem.
