The monitor was simplicity itself to set up with my Dell Inspiron 620, entirely intuitive and no need to refer to the instructions. The system detected the monitor straight away and set the native resolution.
The adjustments to get colours/brightness/contrast etc just right took a few minutes, but the interface is straightforward and hassle-free.
In use, the monitor gives good, vivid colours, flicker-free video viewing and causes none of the eye-strain to which I am susceptible.
Slight gripes, which just stop it getting 5 stars:
The viewing angle, especially vertically, is critical with this type of screen. A mount that allowed click-less micro adjustment is highly desirable, particularly if a number of users of different heights are to use the monitor. Unfortunately, the supplied stand only permits adjustments in a series of click stops which are fairly wide apart. I ended up using a system of wedges under the leading edge of the stand to adjust vertical viewing angle.
The stand itself is flimsy. The monitor rocks about when touched and the base of the stand isn’t heavy or wide enough to properly support the weight and width of the screen.
Those problems apart, this is a good value monitor, offering excellent performance.
[For reference, my main uses are for photo-editing, video-editing and general computer use. I don’t use it for games. I hate games.]
