  Does the job!

A wonderful monitor that seemed calibrated and ready to go from the start. So good, that I'll be looking to get a second one soon. And at a good price!

  Awesome, but with some niggles

| | See all Perfectblue's reviews (9)

I brought this as a second monitor to go along side a much more expensive screen so that I could put up my reference material without having to keep switching backwards and forwards, and I must say that I'm not disappointed.

It's a great monitor for the price. No dead pixels, good connectivity at the back and good all round performance. Well worth it for the price. I've had no trouble with videos or bleeding, or anything really.

The only real niggles are that the base attaches to the monitor very low down. which gives gives it an awkward center of gravity so the monitor tends to shake if you knock your desk during frantic gaming. The white balance on the monitor is also tricky to get right. Unless you manually adjust it it's a little blue/gray. I only really notice this because I've got a more expensive monitor next to it for comparison, but this is only really an issue if you are doing color sensitive work such as Photoshop editing (in which case your color balance will be thrown off). It beats the pants off of the screen that I replaced with it.

A couple of people have remarked that this monitor gave them a slight headache. Same here. It was caused by eye strain. I adjusted the white balance and the brightness/contrast and the problem went away.

All in all. Good for gaming, good for movies (Except ones with a lot of black, which backlit screens often have problems with), and good for everyday use.

Not so good if you intend to do quality Photo editing, but what can you expect form a screen that costs less than your graphics package.

I brought it, and I'd buy another one if I could run three screens at once.

Only the slight color balance issue stops me from giving this 5 stars.

Oh, and I've never used the speakers, so I can't say what they are like. But at a guess they won't blow you away, but most gamers and movie watchers will already have a set of speakers so it's not really an issue.

  WoW!! Great Monitor for Gaming.

Purchased this as an Upgrade to my 19" wide screen to take advantage of My Geforce 9800Gtx. And im not dissapointed one bit.
I did however like another reviewer commented get a headache after a day of use but this was sorted by tweaking the color and contrast. Crysis, prototype, Wolfenstien and total war all look amazing in 1920x1080. Watching blue-ray movies is also a delight to behold. Setup was easy and the Osd controls are simple to use with 5 different viewing settings. Standard, Game,Movie, Scenery and text which alter brightness and contrast accordingly.

  Great screen for a great price

This is an all round great monitor, especially for the relatively low price point. Images and text look crisp and move smoothly on its full 1080p resolution.

My only criticisms are the fairly weak vertical viewing angles and the lack of height adjustment on the stand. Other than that, top notch!

  Absolutely perfect

I brought this monitor a few weeks ago and I absolutely love it.. Aside from one fact: it has started giving me quite bad headaches. Now, I don't know if this is just because of how much I use it but if you're prone to frequent headaches I would reccomend you look elsewhere.

Other than that it's got crystal clear quality and the HDMI port is a lovely touch because I can play my 360/PS3 on it when I don't feel like moving to my television.

  Agreed

I agree with the other review written here, the monitor is extremely nice and easily well recommended.

I use it for my PS3 and general PC gaming, and its great. I just wish there were more 1080p games on the PS3 to fully enjoy the quality, the 720p game can look a little, how you say, not so great... but, hey :P thats monitors for you.

  Great Value and Superb Performance

I was looking for a monitor that I could use for my PC and Xbox 360 and this was the perfect choice for me. My PC is connected to the DVI port and the Xbox connects via the HDMI so I get the best possible picture quality for both systems. The lightning-fast 2ms response time also makes gaming a delight on both systems.

The monitor also has 2 speakers that are fine for basic desktop functions but no good for gaming so don't buy this monitor just for your xbox 360 unless you have an alternate sound setup - a TV would be your best bet.

Overall I'm very happy with this monitor and I recommended it completely.
