Pros: Cheap as hell. Absolutely great price for what they do.
Calibrated correctly, the colors are excellent.
Brightness is extremely strong for high-light environments.
They're light and incredibly thin.
The build quality is pretty strong, especially in the tilting joint.
The picture is overall excellent with adjustment.
They were shipped outstandingly fast. I got them 2 days after they were shipped, even though the shipping on packages this size is normally slightly longer. That's legendary Newegg for you, though.
Cons: As many others have said, the factory settings are absolutely disgustingly wrong. It will take a good bit of calibration on both the monitor settings and your GFX driver settings to get them right.
Max color true-ness is something around 85-90%, which is a bit low for an LED backlit screen.
Brightness can be adjusted but backlight can't? Probably the most grating frustration, especially considering that it's LED backlit.
Brightness is way too strong.
Footprint is a little steep.
Bezels are very wide. Not good for multi-setup monitors like mine if you can afford better.
Slightly confusing menu.
I have one dead pixel, but it's almost invisible.
Other Thoughts: I complain a lot, but most of these- aside from the bad factory settings and brightness- are nitpicking. At the price point, these are probably the best you can get at true 1080p.
I would only dock an egg if they were at a higher pricepoint. Anymore than +15% of their current price and the drawbacks would definitely knock off an egg.
Still, though, an overall excellent product. A dual monitor setup, even with the wide bezels, is definitely serviceable with these, and even one alone would be a very great choice. I fully recommend.
