5 out of 5 eggsAn awesome deal

Pros: So I bought 6 of these for an eyefinity setup which by the way is awesome. 3 for me and 3 for my friend and out of all of them only one got a stuck pixel which isn't even a dead pixel and can be fixed. I could send it back but doesn't seem worth it to me.

The contrast on these monitors is awesome at least to me.

Cons: The single stuck pixel out of 6 displays is my only con and that's not even that bad

4 out of 5 eggsNot Great,

Pros: Works as stated.

Cons: Its not a great picture, even with the brightness turned down it's too bright, and the view angle isn't as good as other monitors I have. Were it not for how cheap it was I would give it 3 stars.

Other Thoughts: Its been a year and it still works.

5 out of 5 eggsFANTASTIC DEAL!

Pros: Best deal I have ever got on a monitor. It is a very clear picture and easy on the eyes. Lightweight and takes up little space on your desk

Cons: Image contrast is a little blown out. Speakers are worthless. Would have been nice if they provided a plug on side of monitor to patch a headphone jack to. Other than that KILLER monitor for the price. I had only wished I bought two. Now they are out of stock :(

3 out of 5 eggsNice design but mine was broken...

Pros: Nice design and very cheap.

Cons: The contrast did not work. The screen was very pale and I could not distinguish between white and pale blue (like when selecting files in windows explorer).
I had to return it...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product, Great Service

Pros: The screen was very easy to set up and use.
autoconfig fixes any improper alignment of the screen
It is everything it claims to be

Cons: The LCD sometimes cuts off edges of the display, however it corrects itself if you push a button.
The item arrived without a power adapter, however after having an online chat with a Newegg representative, a new cord was shipped to me after about a week.

Other Thoughts: I was nervous buying a refurbished product at such a great price, however it has turned out to be a great decision so far. I really can't tell it was refurbished.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat economy refurb monitor

Pros: Awesome resolution, light weight. Tilt adjustment. Very minor scuffing. Decent amount of picture adjustment options. LED backlighting.

Cons: Very sensitive to view angles. Your light/contrast balance will vary drastically with minimal movement. Speakers are nearly worthless. Tinny sound, non-existent bass, requires menu mining to adjust basic volume.

Other Thoughts: Even as a refurb with the above issues this is great deal at $70 out the door. Scuffing is minor (on the front bezel) and only noticeable at the right angle.

To Newegg-- The hoops you force buyers to jump through for the WALLET promo is unintuitive and completely inane. After setting up a google wallet, installing your app and installing more android play framework junk, I found out your website cart and mobile app cart doesn't sync, forcing users to refind and reorder the item again on the vastly inferior app site.

If the intent was to drive repeat business to google wallet and your app, it failed here as both were promptly uninstalled simply due to the soul crushing despair inspired by the wholly excruciating process.

5 out of 5 eggsVery pleased!

Pros: - Image quality looks beautiful. Played BioShock Infinite and Tomb Raider on it and it looked great!
- Slim and cheap
- Surprisingly reliable for refurbished

Cons: - No HDMI

Other Thoughts: So I picked this up during the July 4th sale for $85 and overall I am nothing short of pleased. This monitor is great for the price I paid, and as I said above, I've played some of the latest games through the monitor and it looks awesome. I haven't had any issues with it thus far, and would highly recommend it for it's great price for its quality! Only wish it had an HDMI output.
