Pros: Ok so the pros are that these monitors are extremely sleek and just look astonishing on the desk. The bezel from the monitor as you can probably tell from in the pictures is pretty much non existent except for the bottom part. On top of being low cost compared to other monitors in the same price range, these come with all the connections you would probably use to connect it to your PC. Another thing that might be a pro is that the base of the monitor has a little image of a clip, and this part is actually a magnet within the base itself; so if you are maybe working around your PC and don't want to loose some screws, the monitor has got you covered. I use these monitors for gaming, and those that say that the response time isn't' fast enough or that an IPS panel is not good for gaming, well they might be right but I don't notice the difference!. My gaming is the same I do not feel that the monitors hinder my gaming performance at all.
Cons: Alright so now on the the cons. These monitors are not mountable to any type of arm, since they are missing the screws on the back of the screen. The monitors can only tilt, you will not be able to adjust the height of the monitors at all, zero! These monitors are not anti glare, so if you have your desk pointing away from the window in such a way that the sun will hit the monitors, then you can definitely expect some glare. While I did previously state that the monitors did not have a bezel (or was almost non existent, the display does not actually reach the border of the monitor, instead the image is about a 1/4" form the bezel. Now on to my last minor complaint and then on to the big one! The buttons on this monitor feel flimsy, they wiggle in the little slot that they are, and can sometimes be hard to press. PLEASE READ OTHER THOUGHTS IF YOU ARE THINKING OF BUYING TWO OR MORE OF THESE MONITORS FOR DOUBLE OR SURROUND DISPLAY.
Overall Review: OK so here is what I did, I was looking for monitors at Newegg, and happened to stumble on these. I thought they were good enough so I decided to buy two of them. When they arrived they were all intact, I built the base attached it to the monitor "simple setup" and then I got to putting the monitors side by side... and this is where there was an issue. One monitor was at least 1/2" higher than the other monitor (or so I thought). I destroyed some cardboard and put it underneath the monitor that I thought was short so that I would have a nice double display. After about a week while fixing my desktop (not pc) around for a better set up, I happened to notice something weird about these monitors. When putting the monitors side by side one was taller than the other one, and then when I switched the monitor places the same thing happened (one was shorter than the other). I thought this was odd, for how can it be that the taller monitor is now shorter than the other one? So I decided to check with a leveler whether or not the screens were leveled. What I found was that both monitors were tilted slightly to the Right!, which made me think that one of these monitors was shorter than the other when putting them side by side. Just to make sure that the leveler was right, I measured the right hand side of the screen with a measuring tape, and then I measured the left hand side. The measurements were Right: 15 3/4", Left: 16". I didn't notice that the monitors were this crocked for an entire week, and probably would have never figured it out had I not been messing around with my desktop. Now I think that this is too much of a coincidence, since both of my monitors measured the same 15 3/4" on the right and 16" on the right when measuring from the bottom of my floor to the top bezel of the monitor. Now what I did to remedy this slope on my monitors was to put some folded paper between the neck and base of the monitor on the right hand side to make that side higher. After some tinkering around with the display unscrewing putting more pieces of paper in and redoing, I finally got my display to be leveled! My advice to you is just to not expect these monitors to be leveled, or possibly even to be of the same height! If you do happen to notice that one monitor is higher than the other just check whether or not the monitors are leveled, and then apply the fix I did to make them look nice and leveled, I hope this review helped you make a decision for all in all I would still buy them again, and in fact I am about to order another one :).
