What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ample size! Purchased a mini desk top and have a smaller desk, so this fits like a glove! Very good clarity!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Monitor I have 3 of these set up horizontally and the size is just perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great monitor for the price First let me explain why I gave a one star rating. In the manual and everywhere I read the power supply input adaptor is 100-240 volts 50-60 hz. The one that was supplied is 100-127 volts and 60 hz. So it has limited use around the world without buying a new adaptor. I even called customer service with no help. Now, the monitor has very good picture and response time is also very good. It come with a stand but I use a wall bracket for one of the two monitors I bought. Again if you use it where you need the is 200-240 or where the hz is 50 you need a new power adaptor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great screen! I bought this almost a month ago, and it has shown itself to be a great screen. If I had to complain about anything it would be that, out of the box the brightness was set at the top of the scale. It really needs to be cut down some if you are using it in the average room with average ambient light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Missing cord The picture is really nice, however, I had to drive a long way to get the cord I needed to hook up to my computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate color for photo editing I have used this monitor for several months now and am very satisfied with the performance. The color was accurate out of the box but I calibrated it anyway and it has kept the accuracy which is so important to a photographer. I use a two monitor system with this one as my editing station and it's perfect.

Does this connect with HDMI? It shows in specs under HDMI, yes but in inputs/outputs it doesn't.

Asked by: venderpkt
no. The back of mine has a dvi connector and a vga connector. I can only get it to accept the input of the vga. dvi says no signal... I tried a hdmi to dvi converter. but it didn't work.
