Excellent LED IPS monitor for the price
on 23 May 2012
I bought this 23" monitor when my Dell 22" monitor bought in 2008 packed up. I chose it ahead of the Acer S240HLbid 24" because, although very slightly smaller, it has an IPS (rather than TN) screen and has good technical reviews elsewhere for its colour fidelity and value for money.
I'm very happy with it - images and text are crisp and the colours are bright and true. The black is jet black from edge to edge and there are no dead pixels. I can't compare it with other models or comment on specialised uses like graphic design or high-end gaming, but for general work, watching video content or photo-editing it seems great, and visibly better than my old 22" monitor, even if the styling isn't as classy.
Setup is extremely easy - you just plonk it on the stand, connect the leads and plug it in. It came with both DVI and VGA cables.
One warning: at the time of writing it is not being sold by Amazon itself and the best third-party price on Amazon.co.uk is 25 quid more than I paid for it last week. I paid 111 pounds inc VAT.
