4 out of 5 eggsGreat low budget Monitor

Pros: I was able to pick this up for around $150 after a mail in rebate. This is a great price for a 27 inch monitor.

Cons: It doesn't have the best display. But for $160, you shouldn't expect perfection.

5 out of 5 eggsGood monitor.

Pros: Large, easy to set up, simple to assemble the stand. Inputs are easy to get to. Offers a headphone jack just in case you need it. It converts the HDMI audio over to analogue. Offers a variety of settings for various conditions such as gaming, movies and such.

Cons: None so far, Everything was shipped and in the box. Box took a beating during shipment but the product was not damaged.

Other Thoughts: Good price for a decent monitor. I replaced an aging lcd 1080p 42 inch tv and thought this would be terrible. Its not all for the price. Im quite happy with it.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, and not so good.

Pros: Nice settings, clear picture, great price point.

Cons: One of my two monitors went white after 1 week of use.

Other Thoughts: I spent $2000 on a pc build, which included 2 of these monitors. I got these on time, and everything was great. My pc went to sleep, and one monitor never woke up, this was only after one week of use. No matter what I did the screen was all white, with no picture. Obviously newegg is going to replace it, but I am going to be without the monitor for 2 weeks or more until they get my old one, process it, and send me a new one. I think newegg needs to learn from "Other online sites" and maybe send me out a replacement right away. I am not very happy with the inconvenience. Being a premier member and a repeat customer I was hoping for a little more support. The monitor that is still working looks good, and I am overall happy with the purchase. I gave this product 4 stars still, but it is something to keep in mind that I am not the only person to have this monitor go bad so quickly.

3 out of 5 eggsA bit fuzzy

Pros: - No dead pixels
- Large screen
- Still works

Cons: - After getting this I realized that 1920x1080 is just not a high enough resolution for a monitor this big
- Blurry/fuzzy. I always thought the monitor was a bit fuzzy compared to the older 23" I had on my desk. After a little more than a year of using the monitor I started experiencing some weird vision problems. A few months after that, I started getting a lot of headaches and dizziness. 6 months after that (and a ton of money spent on tests and doctors), I find out I have severe eye strain, so I can't use it anymore.
- Speakers functional but quiet

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor, very good pixel density.

Pros: Good pixel density for being 1080P
Nice colour replication and good contrast.
Matte surface stops reflections.

Cons: Uneven backlight, top is darker than the bottom.
Default settings were terrible.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend for anyone looking for a good 1080P monitor. It's just a TN monitor, not IPS, so black colours or darker scenes in games like Tomb Raider or GTA V are slightly grey.
Overall a very good purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Monitor for price

Pros: Great size, price and advertised features that do work.

Cons: Very bad horizontal tearing in games when V-sync is turned off sometimes in movies as well with large moving action scenes. Much worse than my smaller monitors. I supose that is to be expected with a 27" model though, The 72hz max refresh rate only works at resolutions of 800x600 or less. Again this is to be expected so 60hz max at 1080p. I used to use this monitor as my main gaming rig monitor for its size. I recently upgraded it to a another 27" with 1440p and 144hz. This monitor now is my secondary pc movie watching/streaming/media center PC unit. It does an ok job with Blu-Ray's and streaming netflix and such but honestly my 1080i 50" Plasma tv looks much better so I cannot recommend this unit for someone planning to use it as a tv or media center monitor.

Other Thoughts: Not a bad monitor at all, as I said I used it as a daily driver for a couple of years and was fine with it. A few months ago I really got the itch to upgrade so i did a lot of research and found an new one. I give it 4 stars because I have never had a single issue with this unit, never a dead pixel, never a failure to come on when turned on, never as much as a hiccup other than all the horizontal tearing about 1/4 from the top of the screen on almost every game(sometimes even with v-sync on and thats why I didnt give it 5 stars) This is a good daily use monitor for people doing light gaming and standard net browsing and the like.
