Great monitor, doesn't tilt, messy software set up (if you use it), 2 Jun 2011
This is a great monitor . . .
. . . two things however.
Mine doesn't tilt. If this matters to you, beware.
The basic setup is straightforward (plug it in and fiddle with the screen buttons). However if you want to do any more than this by using the provided software, you may encounter fractured English describing not terribly helpfully a different version of the software to the one you're actually using.
The Magictune software allows you control the appearance of the screen through software rather than through buttons on the screen. Clever stuff here - just a shame it's so badly described. In some cases it's impossible to work out what's going on. For example, under 'Color' there is a calibration screen which appears to be setting gamma at five different grey levels (this is my guess, I could be wrong) whilst there is also a 'Gamma' screen which gives you three choices of gamma without explaining what they mean. One can sort of work out what's happening here, and some of the selections are very obvious, but it's a shame that they make such noodle of explaining it all.
The Multiscreen software allows you to partition the screen in all sorts of useful ways. There is a help file (extension .chm) but my installation failed to find it, and I had to go looking manually. One hint - after you've launched it, it appears in the task tray, then you scratch your head wondering what to do next, then you right click on it. After that, it's plain sailing.
So, lovely monitor, let down at the margins.
