Pros: Price, specs

Cons: Absolutely AWFUL display

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my wife to use for her business, and decided to return it before even finishing the first time setup. The display is the worst display I have ever seen. Colors are extremely washed out, and the viewing angle is around 0 degrees, resulting in color gradients even on solid colors. I tested it by setting a solid black color for the desktop background and I could not find a position for my head where the entire screen actually looked black. From every angle there was a gray washed out look at the edge of the screen. The colors inverted around 30 degrees. The screen is also extremely reflective which doesn't help the issue.

Maybe this is just a hardware defect, but since my wife often works with clients and needs to be able to sit with two people looking at the screen, I just don't want to take the risk. I'm returning it and buying something else.
