Hanns-G HZ281 27.5" LCD 8/5/2018 8:04:41 AM

Pros: Bright, very bright!. Not ONE dead pixel. Ultra sharp resolution at 1920 X 1200. Comes with DVI to HDMI adapter cable! Also includes a VGA adapter cable for older cards. Even includes a mini cable to run your sound into it. Nice glossy black finish with a large power on indicator light that switches from green to orange.

Cons: Packaging was bashed and torn, partially open when it arrived, I thought the worst had happened. Menu buttons are located under the front bottom edge. Very difficult to twist your hand upside down and push these buttons in. Hope you have a good memory of what menu button does what, because if your in a dimly lit area, you will not be able to read the black writing on the black gloss front panel. These words/icons should have been painted white or at least silver. There is a bit of light bleedthrough, but not too bad. Screen will not go pitch black, but it's really not too bad for the value. I have a Asus monitor that has more bleedthrough than this one.
One egg taken off due to lousy button location, not because of light bleed. Buy a more expensive model if this semi-econo model isn't perfect!

Fantastic enough to buy three 8/11/2015 9:56:01 PM

Pros: High resolution, sharp, crisp, great color rendition.

Cons: My first one blinked out. I see that a great many people have had this happen. The fix you ask? If yours does the constant white black display flash it is the ground in the center of the unit that has gone bad. Open the unit and you will see the large ground wire that bolts to the middle of the metal framework. Remove and clean. When you do this be careful not to bang the edge as the foam gasket on the edge of the screen assembly can leave debris on the internal screen if it is desiccated (most are). Real bugger to get out. I have one spec on my secondary one. Opening the case is NOT easy.

Simply put this is the largest display you can buy for $200 or less. I paid $125 for the first and about $150 each for the other two. I use all three on my main machine.

Overall Review: I have basically had no serious problems with these displays. It is a shame that Hanns G is no longer offering this display. It does show what can be done when a company is motivated.

With that said external Ipad speakers are better than the ones in the display. They are just plain horrible. I wouldn't count on using them for much. Think ear bud cranked up in a soup can.
