Pros: All pros still remain as I listed in my first review.
Cons: After nearly a year with these monitors, they are failing bit by bit. I initially had to replace one due to a very noticeable back-light leak. Now all 3 of them have back-light ripples along the bottom of the display. Even worse, one display flickers! The ripples keep growing and the flickering starts at random.
Other Thoughts: I don't recommend anyone purchase this monitor if they are looking for reliability and quality. I have owned 4, and all 4 have become defective within the first ~8 months of ownership. For 200 dollars these seemingly high quality panels look like a bargain, but they are absolutely not. The materials are wobbly and nothing is put together very well. The bottom bezel gets so hot that I predict it is the cause of the back-light rippling. If I can explain it further, due to the lack of a plastic bezel around the monitor, the sheets of material that make up the display simply begin to separate, and this process is sped up by the extreme heat. Anyway, point made, these monitors are a bit of a fail in engineering, despite their great initial appearance.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: All 3 of these display panels were quick and easy to assemble. The viewing angle on these panels is also absolutely unreal. I can look almost directly across the display from the side and still get a clear image. This is true for above and below. The response time is average and I have no problem with it. Colors are vivid, and unlike some monitors, they are very accurate. The matte finish allows for great image quality in sunlight.
Cons: The seemingly nonexistent bezel is not true when powered on, but I purchased this item already knowing this.
The menu buttons and power are on the back, which requires me to reach under each panel in my 3-panel setup to power them on.
The connector to the base is very wobbly and holds the screens all at ~5 degrees clockwise tilt, making for a bad image flow between the screens. I must stress though, this is not a large problem.
Other Thoughts: The 2 watt speakers are no better than laptop speakers, they may as well be ignored.
It would be nice if these came with HDMI cables, not just VGA.
For the cost of these monitors, this is more than I could have expected.
