Low price, high failure rate.
on 22 September 2014
Let me preface this by saying that I genuinely recommend these monitors, they have a few flaws but are generally excellent monitors especially considering their price. They work really nicely in a multi-monitor setup as well (The bezels are very thin, but the bottom juts out slightly either side, leaving about a cm between the edges of the monitors).
However, they seem to have high failure rates, I ordered 2 initially, both of which had dead pixels, I got both replaced and one of the replacements had an even bigger cluster of dead pixels than the first two monitors combined. This could either be due to the fact they weren't particularly well protected & packaged and I just had to roll the dice to see if they made it to me in one piece or that they are some old stock that is getting cleared which might explain why they are so cheap.
Maybe I got incredibly unlucky, but now I've got both monitors and they are absolutely fantastic, can't recommend them highly enough.
