Well, I got what I paid for 03/10/2014
It works, it's cheap, very thin, and light for its size
flimsy, unstable stand, stuck pixel right out of the box
Well I saw this big honking monitor for $180, and I just couldn't pass it up. I noticed a few reviews suggesting that the base was unstable, and I just kind of ignored them. But wow were they right. The stand is, in a word, ridiculous. It literally has half the footprint of the stand on the 23" Acer monitor that I upgraded from. Fortunately my desk has a hutch, and I'm able to shove one side of this monitor up against it to stabilize. If it wasn't for that, I'd seriously consider screwing it down to the desk. It really is that unstable.
minus one egg
And again like other reviews mentioned, it does bleed a bit. This wasn't such a big deal though. I adjusted the brightness and contrast down to sane levels, and that took care of 80%ish of the light bleed. Still though, when I look over to my right again at the Acer monitor it replaced (now hooked up to a media rig) I see its black black blackity blacks. I look at this thing and I see [Batman voice] very dark shades of gray [/Batman voice].
minus half an egg
So that leaves me with 3.5 eggs rounded to 4.
I see a stuck pixel.
minus another half egg
So, yep, I got what I paid for. I don't really like leaving 3 eggs for a product that is functioning (more or less) correctly and withing design parameters. But it is what it is. I don't think I'd buy this monitor again. In retrospect, I wish I'd paid the $50 more for another Acer. >_<
