Decent Monitor, Great Price 04/07/2014
very competitively priced
all necessary accessories included
Possible QC issues (dead pixel)
Colors not very nice (washed out, limited options to correct)
I bought this because it was the cheapest 24" 1080p monitor I could find that had lots of 5 star reviews. I have two other monitors I can compare this monitor with: ASUS VS248H-P, and a 24" AOC monitor (I don't know the model number, but it's about a year old).
Came with a power cable (small 'brick' type), DVI cable, VGA cable, Drivers CD and stand.
This monitor has the nicest stand of the three (I would rank them: AOC, Asus, Acer). You have a small degree of adjustability and the stand holds the monitor pretty steady, even amidst light jostling of the desk it's sitting on. However, it's still a cheap-feeling plastic stand and the adjustment was pretty hard to do at first (a lot friction in the mechanism--I had to double check the specs listed here to make sure it was adjustable and that I wasn't going to break it.)
The stand comes in two pieces and is very easy to assemble and disassemble (two screws--one philips, one flat head).
The monitor itself is a matte panel with a decent (not good or great) picture. The colors are pretty washed out (image quality is on par with the AOC monitor, and a little worse than the Asus.) The adjustments in the menu don't seem to do much for it. I also found a dead pixel in the upper right quarter of the monitor. So, overall, not a terribly impressive panel--but if you just need a productivity monitor (and don't care about perfect colors or the odd missing pixel) this fits the bill pretty well.
Don't expect to be blown away by this monitor. It's cheap, it's practical but that's about it. It's by no means a 'hidden gem' or a 'steal of a value' for the price (as all the five star reviews might lead you to think.) As long as your expectations are realistic, you won't be disappointed.
