1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Brightness issue

Pros: None, this is a below acceptable monitor when you notice the brightness can't change and is useless.

Cons: Cheap, at least for what I thought most monitor's possessed, a basic level of ability. This one it seemed they must of tried to mess up and still sell them for their horrible brightness. You can't lower the brightness on blue and white especially in games so if you need to see something that is bright like desert good luck and you better just not use the monitor.
Don't buy unless you don't know how many things you won't see correctly then buy it to feel ripped off!

Other Thoughts: Honestly a mistake I don't know how they allow.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent monitor for the price.

Pros: Inexpensive 1080p.Easy installation.Price!

Cons: Like others have stated the color is a bit washed out.I don't have as much of an issue with the color.It's the contrast that is horrible.Black/dark areas in movies are terrible.Ive managed to tame the brightness,but the contrast is another story.Games look pretty good on this monitor.It's just movies where this monitor falls short for me.

Other Thoughts: Overall it's really not a bad monitor....just takes some tinkering with the color/brightness.Good luck with the contrast though.

4 out of 5 eggsKnow that you are buying a cheap monitor

Pros: - Gets 1080p at a cheap price
- Solid base. Does not wobble around
- Cheap
- Easy menu navigation
- Has an eco setting

Cons: - What people say about this monitor is true: color looks faded, contrast is kind of bad, brightness is bright if not careful. Certainly not for high quality gaming, movie, or anything you want high quality.

Other Thoughts: - Got this for my brother who started to codes and wanted a bigger screen than his smaller laptop. This is cheap for 1080 resolution. But this is not for high quality gaming. This is for someone who just wants a bigger monitor for their eyes.

4 out of 5 eggslooks good, but doesn't supply cable

Pros: Looks good.

Cons: Only provides analog cable, not DVI cable. Had to run to Best Buy to get a cable so I could plug it in to my computer.

2 out of 5 eggsTerrible color

Pros: inexpensive

Cons: Everything else... I've never worked on a monitor with as poor of color reproduction in my life. Everything is really washed out. Even using the monitor's color settings AND Windows color profiles does not correct for the terrible color.

Other Thoughts: I ordered 2. Both are bad for color.
I develop code, so the screen real estate is more important for me than accurate color. And at the price it was hard to pass up. It's an upgrade from 1440x900.

1 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for, I guess.

Pros: On the upside, it did actually work, wasn't damaged, didn't require lengthy setup process or mucking around with drivers.

Cons: However, this monitor is absolutely awful. It is extremely bright and has terrible contrast, washing colors out to an almost eye-watering degree. Gradient hues may as well not exist--for example, the Newegg site appears to be all white rather than having shaded sections. Neither the monitor controls nor messing with my graphics settings via Windows or the GPU were able to correct this problem, and I am hardly the only person to have them.

This is a bad monitor and it's cheap for a reason. Do not buy this monitor; it was a massive disappointment.

Other Thoughts: I think my real lesson here is that monitors are something that should be shopped for in the meat world, not online. It's hard to judge performance from an ad-speak laden order page.
