Warehouse Deal - Arrived broken
on 15 April 2014
I needed a monitor to replace one that was failing. I thought this one was a good buy, it was a warehouse deal supposedly just without the original boxes.
According to the reviews it was supposed to be plug and play. But although the monitor showed now markings etc, when plugged in, the top third of the screen had a pinkish hue, there were green horizontal bands and lots of tiny vertical grey lines (like a grid). Item was returned.
But even without this I don't think I'd have been happy with the monitor. As others have said, it wasn't possible to tilt or change the angle of the screen at all.., and I did try. As can often happen when something isn't working, it makes you explore what the monitor settings can do to help and I found the menu to be very very basic. Some of it only seemed to work if you didn't have it on HDMI, which is more than disappointing. Even if the screen had been working perfectly, I wouldn't have been happy. My old monitor (even though its not HDMI0 does more than this one did.
I know it wasn't an expensive monitor, but even so I would have expected more for my money.
