Good panel, terrible stand

Pros: Screen quality is good, can't see any backlight bleed or common issues. Color adjustment is fairly robust. A little overly sharp but not too bad. It has an HDR mode but it is only good for a quick and dirty color calibration in my view. The contrast isn't high enough to get deep blacks and still have bright items on the screen at the same time.

Cons: Stand is terrible, and not only is it terrible, it isn't VESA mounted. I am ok with a bad stand if I can just replace it if it bothers me enough, but this stand is super wobbly and cheap even on a very sturdy solid wood desk. There is no height to it at all and if you want to move it up at all you will need a pedestal or a ream of paper or something tacky like that.

Overall Review: This is for use by a younger kid and he is ok with the bad stand, I would not be. If this is a primary monitor I would put more money into something else, even though the panel itself seems pretty good. I have only had it for a few days though so I can't speak to longevity. If you have to be on a strict budget or are building for someone less picky about such things it isn't a terrible value.
