Best Buy Review by yourbrokenoven
Phenomenal value. Very pretty monitor.
I was giving this monitor its first test run while playing Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (A very vibrant, colorful game) admiring what I thought was a pretty nice picture and my wife walked in and said, "Oh! Wow. You did a really REALLY good job with this monitor, baby." And that's all I needed to know. I mean, yes, I thought it looked a great deal better than the old Samsung Syncmaster 305T (which just started dying again after I reflowed the solder and revived it for the third time about 10 months ago), but I was very happy to hear exactly how much better it looked from another point of view.
This monitor offers DVI, HDMI, and Display Port. Also has built-in speakers which I will never use. Height adjustment and tilt are present and offer plenty range of motion in my opinion (don’t know the precise degrees of motion). The swivel goes around almost, but not quite exactly 360 degrees. I have no idea why I’d ever need that, but hey, maybe someone would.
Very very bright compared to my old syncmaster, which I still thought was bright. I’ve read the colors are accurate, but I have no way of testing this, nor do I really have an eye for it without a side-by-side. Contrast is great as well. Again, just subjective opinion here compared with an old syncmaster (and an even older 19" Acer monitor, possibly 10 years old).
If I had the money, I’d definitely buy a couple more of these and set up a 3-screen gaming machine with Dual graphics, etc, etc, etc.
If I had a nice webcam, I’d set this monitor up as a mirror. That’s how good I think it looks. Okay, I probably wouldn’t, but you get the idea. This monitor is sharp and vibrant.
Other thoughts: The product page here on bestbuy.com is pretty horrible. I recommend looking up reviews and photos on other websites to get a better idea of what this product is capable of. In any case, I strongly recommend this monitor from my own experience and based on other reviews I’m probably not allowed to link to from here.
