Pros: Arrived at my house.
Cons: Packaging was ridiculous - a bubble-wrap envelope over a lightweight cardboard box. The thing showed up looking like it had been run over with the box half crumpled and tire tracks on it. The device seems to be undamaged, but I can't tell for sure since I can't hook it up (see other)
Other Thoughts: The device I received is not designed for US standards - the power cord has the European two round plug at the end - but the seller was nice enough to include an adapter. However, the Coax in-and-out on the back of the box are PAL standard smooth things, not the threaded connectors that are used in the US. I have ordered an adapter, but now I have to wait. This should have been clear when i ordered the thing. Lame.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: They look okay. The subwoofer is kind of small and inadequate-looking, but it's black and unobtrusive. The desktop speakers don't have any grills or coverings so you're looking right at the cones and they're kind of sleek-looking.
Cons: Sound is muddy and weak. For the price I was expecting cra7py sound but at least adequate volume - these speakers provide neither. It's a cheap-sounding, generalized, mushy sound that doesn't even get loud enough for entertaining. Bass-heavy without any sort of clarity or presence. Speakers are so small and lightweight that the cat knocks them over all the time while pacing behind the monitor.
Other Thoughts: Cheap and probably re-purposable, such that I won't bother returning it, but keep your expectations low. At least it wasn't some hateful logitech product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Large, bright, cheap. Copious inputs. Decent stand. Sound which exists. I now have 3 of these - not a dead pixel among them. Cheap as hell, ton of inputs (VGA, HDMI, DVI) - awesome for normal humans doing things, maybe not for snobs.
Cons: For the price, none. There's maybe a lack of vibrancy to the image, but I haven't spent a ton of time buried in the settings. The bezel is kind of chunky and the sceptre logo is way too house-proud. With darkest content, there's some irregularities with the light bleeding from the edges. All the stand does is tilt - no raising or lowering.
Other Thoughts: We bought one for my son as a 2nd monitor for his work laptop. It was so solid I bought 2 more for my wife and me. It's sufficient for my modest gaming needs, movies look fine. Thinking about making one of these my bedroom chromecast neftlix screen.READ FULL REVIEW
