5.0 out of 5 stars Value for money 13 April 2012
By Dusty

Only had the monitor about a week. I am very pleased, fast delivery, well packaged and it's not cheap looking, also no missing pixels!!! I finally upgraded from and old 19" tft monitor (not HD) and I can finally see the internet the way it should be!! I was worried that the monitor didn't have an HDMI port, but having read similar reviews on other Hanns G monitors my mind was put at rest. The monitor was easy to assemble and the driver installation was straight forward. I actually ordered a hdmi to dvi cable to make use use of the HD. After the drivers installed the vga to dvi cable was sufficient enough for the HD resolution. I've quickly looked through the menu options, but TBH I've not had to change anything, everything is fine straight out of the box. I also purchased a HD graphics card to make full use of the monitor, it was only 26 (from Amazon) So for around 135 all in I have no complaints!!! Even the cable I ordered was only around 2.30, it's still not arrived, but will be ok as a spare as I no longer require it. I read all the other reviews on Hanns G monitors and all round they sounded pretty good, never heard of them before now. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone and will buy them in the future too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can you go wrong with this for 107? 30 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
For the money, and assuming it lasts as well as my now 5 year old Hanns.G HC194D monitor, buying this is a complete no-brainer for the average user like me who wants a good size monitor on a budget with a good picture and good specs.

Granted, it's a TN panel with all the inherent limitations, but the picture seems fine out of the box and viewing angles are good for such a panel. Also, the resolution is 1080p so could be good for casual tv/film viewing. It has DVI as well as VGA unlike some ultra-cheap monitors so you get the best possible picture without the blurring that you can get with VGA. You do not need HDMI on a monitor like this and in any case if you need to connect to an HDMI source, you can get an HDMI/DVI cable for the same price as a DVI/DVI or HDMI/HDMI cable and then connect the audio using the supplied audio lead.

Speaking of sound, for a very cheap monitor the inbuilt sound is surprising good, but still I would not recommend it for anything but the most basic uses.

Surprisingly, the monitor includes a VGA cable which seems a bit pointless and just adds to my pile of spare leads that will be worth something once we run out of metal to make wires! It's about time manufacturers reduced waste by leaving out things like leads and just send them out free on request. On the other hand if they had included a DVI lead, I could have made use of that.

One thing this monitor does not waste, though, is your electricity. It uses a maximum of 24 watts, which is excellent for a 24" monitor, but since it is excessively bright at this level, it also functions quite adequately in eco mode using an unbelievable low 11 watts (yes, I did say 11 watts) in moderate light conditions.

The monitor looks and feels quite reasonable for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic monitor at very attractive price. 1 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
Having checked out several other monitors - price excluded - I was most taken with this one.

Delivery was excellent even though I ordered close to Christmas.

I purchased this to replace my old Phillips 17" monitor having first tried a Benq 21" which did not suit and its screen was 20 mm less height than my old 17"!

I swapped the monitors using the same leads for convenience and because the Hanns is only supplied with a continental 2 pin plug!

On first sight the Hanns is massive but actually much lighter than the Phillips. The screen height is about 15 mm higher and almost 1.5 times as wide. When the monitor is off it does not look as massive as the neat black bezel is not obtrusive. The blue power light is a bit bright but does not detract as some monitors are reported to.

First view was not impressive but soon got better when I changed the screen resolution.
Brightness was excessive - pass the sun glasses - and I eventually reduced it to 30% before I was happy with it. There is an 'Active Contrast' which is good - but it overrides all other settings for brightness and contrast and so there is no way to limit the maximum brightness.

The controls are under the right hand corner of the monitor - by the blue light. They have a firm click operation but not too firm to operate satisfactorily. There is a wide range of adjustments including colour setting of 'warm, natural, cool or user set', Sharpness from -2 to +2 and mode of PC, Movie, Games, and Eco depending on what you normally use. The only thing to watch is that as all the buttons are fairly close to each other in dull ambient light it is easy to press the 'off' button in place of the movement button when using the menu - but this is minor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly good value for money, holds up well. 4 April 2013
By KN100
Verified Purchase
Hello all. I bought this monitor around a year ago and it's still going strong.

Good things about the monitor
x. It doesn't get hot. At all. It really doesn't produce any sort of warmth whatsoever which for me is FANTASTIC. The panel remains cold no matter how bright you set it.
x. It is incredibly bright. So bright, in fact, I personally run the monitor on it's lowest brightness setting as this for me at least is more comfy for my eyes.
x. Colour reproduction is incredibly good, some of the best I've seen on a LCD. Not as good as IPS, but definitely good LCD.
x. Monitor settings are nicely laid out without any stupid marketing names or anything for the features.
x. Supports DDC/CI
x. Extremely lightweight, carrying this thing around is almost fun.
x. The panel, bezel, and back are all well built
x. EXTREMELY energy efficient. As previously mentioned the thing doesn't get warm AT ALL and with my power meter I measure less than 10 watts.

Bad things about the monitor
x. The stand is a little cheap feeling, more than strong enough to hold the monitor up but just a little flimsy feeling and no adjustment other then horizontal tilt. At this pricepoint, I won't hold this against the panel.
x. Small point, but stupid stickers in the bottom left of the monitor "Windows 7 compatible, ECO FRIENDLY, Energy star compliant" - They just look tacky.
x. It has inbuilt speakers. Seriously manufacturers, just remove them. I would much rather a thinner panel then one with speakers.

After a year, the only ill effects I'm seeing is the stand looking a little scuffed up and the panel being a little dirty. All in all incredibly good value for money and when my financial situation is a little more healthy I'll consider picking up another Hanns G panel!
