1 out of 5 eggsAvoid This Monitor

Pros: Few

Cons: Very poor quality control--backlight leakage on 66% of the units I have seen. Generally 'washed out' appearance. A menu that only works if you have a signal going to the monitor. Menu controls with no tactile feedback.

I ordered two of these monitors to act as companions to a different model monitor (by the same manufacturer) because the dimensions are the same and the price was right. After one RMA replacement I have only a single, properly functioning PLL2710W. Two out of the three monitors I received had moderate to severe backlight leakage around the edges and pixels that were 'noisy.' (I don't know how else to describe it.) The replacement monitor isn't as bad as the first but it's hard to see how either made it out of the factory as 'ok.'

The monitor that does function correctly displays generally 'washed out' color--which you may not notice if the monitor is all alone, but it's deficiencies are pretty obvious when compared to my primary monitor.

The monitor ships with a VGA cable. What computer has a VGA port these days? Is there really a big cost difference between a VGA cable and a DVI cable?

The menu will not display unless you have a signal going to the monitor on the appropriate input. I found this out because I set the monitor to VGA mode (from 'auto detect') while using the supplied cable temporarily. When I switched to a DVI cable, I couldn't get the menu to come up to switch back to the DVI input. Annoying. Not that you get much out of the menu as the difference between '0' and '100' on the brightness and contrast scale ranges from 'too bright' to 'way too bright.' (not counting the backlight leakage around the edges, of course.)

The menu 'buttons' aren't really buttons, but just sensitive areas of the case. While it's an interesting design choice, they provide absolutely no feeling under your fingers so you have to actually look at them to use them. Adjusting a blindingly bright monitor and then trying to find thin, grey lines on a black background is just annoying and you wind up spending a lot of time pressing on the case in the wrong spots and just getting annoyed.

Other Thoughts: So now I'm stuck with these options:

- Going through the RMA process again and rolling the dice on getting a 'good' one

- Giving up and shipping back both monitors and trying another model/brand (and living with the mismatched heights and appearances.)

- Go back to one monitor and chalk up the additional video card purchase I made to go with the new monitors as sunk cost.

- Keep the barely-acceptable unit and just get annoyed and feel kind of ripped off every time I see that backlight glare around the edge.

3 out of 5 eggsmeh

Pros: it's big?

Cons: * The rotation starts at 90* and tilts back, it will not tilt forward. If this monitor is above your eye level it will always feel like it's tilting backwards.

* no HDMI input and it only comes with an analog VGA

5 out of 5 eggsNo flaws

Pros: Zero flaws - just an excellent monitor with good connectivity. And of course it arrived faster than fast from NewEgg...it's like they shipped it before I ordered it! Amazing.

Cons: none
