    Absolutely Amazing

    EASY TO USE. You can assign two hotkeys for a number of different options including volume and brightness for example. This way if you want to adjust the volume from the built in speakers, all you need to do is hit any of the buttons underneath the screen on the bottom right to bring up the hotkey options and hit the button per your choice of option whether it be volume, brightness or changing the input or bringing up the main menu. Beautiful and lightweight. You can title the monitor to help your neck feel better for viewing. It is light enough to carry with little effort. Protection for your eyes. It provides up to 70% reduction in blue light. Blue light for those who don't know (many don't) is not good for the eyes, can cause eye fatigue and blurriness in the short-term and possibly cause vision loss or other eye problems in the long-term. The theory is a debated one but I myself work 8 hours in front of the computer screen and have felt the short-term effects. And as a hardcore gamer as a young boy, I ended up with glasses at the early age of 14. This monitor is also flicker-free and sports anti-glare coating. The perfect protection for the digital generation in which we live. 1ms response time with 60Hz refresh rate is perfect for console gaming. Played Halo 5 on the Xbox One on this monitor and it was a smooth and beautiful experience. For the console gamer or heavy computer user (for work or game), I recommend this gorgeous monitor 100%. And with this forgiving price of $110, you cannot ask for a better deal unless it gets discounted!

    So my son plays lots of video games and well his xbox was connected to our living room tv so it would kind of cause some back and forth yelling between his mom because she wanted to watch her shows but they had a compromise what times they would be using the tv but it didn’t last long till they went back at it again so I told my son why doesn’t he connect the Xbox to his Mac but then he proceeded to tell me that he would need a specific “dongle” and well I’m not paying 80 dollars for a small item so one day we were at bestbuy and I my son said how about a monitor and I must say he had the happiest look when I bought him the monitor now he’s telling his friends he has a “setup” and well as long as he is happy I’m happy

    I love this monitor it helped me up my game I play PS4 competitive call of duty and could not ask for better. For more context I'm a 22k on UMG (if you don't know what UMG don't worry about it)The performance for the price is outstanding. it does come with speakers however they are not the best, however if you are looking into buying this monitor it is NOT a deal breaker. I would say BUY this monitor. It is 1ms, I feel a noticible difference while playing, it did up my game. If you have a PS4 or any questions u can msg me on twitter @CMLoFti- or PSN : LoFti- Overall it works as advertised for the money u cant bet the price and when u buy the monitor on the box if comes with a 3 year manufacturing warranty even though Best Buy offers their own which I would still reccomend because Best Buy has excellent customer service.

    Poor design, I returned mine

    I had high hopes for this monitor, based on it's impressive specs and low price. While it might work well for some people, I was frustrated with it. It was almost impossible to get a picture with correct brightness, contrast, and gamma, using it with my computer. Monitor's adjustment controls are very difficult to use, the worst I've ever experienced. Tiny buttons on the underside of the screen housing, with no visible markings about what each does. And monitor came with no instructions for making adjustments. Very easy to hit the off button while trying to adjust the settings (which meant starting the adjustments from scratch again). It took me half an hour to even figure out how to tweak the color settings. At factory setting, color intensity was far to strong. No matter how I adjusted it and display settings on my computer, the monitor was too bright, except at very darkest setting where the contrast and gamma were poor. (I like to use my desktop computer in a dark room.)

    I'm not a gamer; I'm a writer. I wanted something large enough to show two Word docs side by side, but not too big. I had three other criteria: it had to tilt, be a matte screen and have ultra-low blue light. (This 'blue light' stuff is starting to scare me.) Since at 1 ms it's super-fast, I figured it was for gamers, and they'd want sharpness, too. The image is sharp! And the price was right, so this was the one. Easy to assemble and hook up out of the box. The only issue I had was that the VGA connection (the heavy head with screws) would not stay put on the side of my laptop. (That has no screw holes.) The connection would drop each time I touched the cable by mistake. So I went back to BB and got a $10 HDMI cable. Now it's perfect. (And my eyes are happy ...)

    If my laptop (MacBook Pro) is not connected to some external speakers, connecting to the monitor disables the volume controls on my keypad. But it is cumbersome to navigate the monitor's menu to adjust the volume of its speaker, even with a shortcut enabled (need at least 3 button pushes to get there). Why not just have a dedicated volume button on the monitor?? Afterall, volume must be by far the adjustment most often made throughout the day. I'm going to exchange it for a model without built-in speakers - will make life easier.

    This monitor is a very good startup monitor, especially for the price. The picture is great and I have no complaints about that, which is really what I was looking for in the first place. The usability of the monitor is a little tough as the menu is somewhat difficult to navigate. The external speakers are also very poor sound quality, but as I said, I wasn't looking for this, rather a good picture. So I am very happy with the purchase.

    Really responsive for gaming and speakers are loud. I had this monitor for 2 years and it has been fine other than the HDMI port breaking. If you constantly unplug the HDMI and put in other ones it will break so now I am stuck with using the other ports on this monitor. I would recommend this monitor though, I am actually going to buy another one.

    I researched for a great gaming monitor for my son, and this one was an excellent option for what he wanted. The price was great for the speed and for the technical requirements he needed to play. He has had it for a couple of months now, and he LOVES it. It is definitely great value for the price. Usually a monitor with these specs goes for over $200. Overall, very happy with the purchase.

    I should have done a bit more research in gaming reviews before purchasing. The colors are beautiful. However, you will only see 60 FPS with this monitor, regardless of what your computer is able to handle. This budget monitor is better for my office applications, because it offers options that make the screen easier on my eyes when I’m working/writing.

    I play Call of Duty competitively and wanted a monitor with 1ms response time. This monitor blew my expectations away and has been great. One of the cheaper and better 1ms monitors on the market and has the quality of a higher priced monitor.

    Monitor arrived on time, and was easy to set-up. It is terrific. The large screen picture vivid. Sound was excellent unlike numerous negative comments made by other users. Sound easily adjustable using computer volume control. Good price, good value.

    Not a ton of experience or knowledge of monitors. It works very well for business purposes. It is not OLED or anything fancy like living room televisions. Would definitely purchase again.

    This was substitute product as the one we wanted was not available. This was on the Best Buy web and since it had a rating and review we took a chance. It proved to be an excellent choice. It was easy to install, the picture is superb and the sound is excellent.

    First of all don't let the price tag fool you. This monitor is really good. The input lag is almost non existent. The colors were off a bit from factory but a quick google search gave me the settings I needed.

    It provides a high number of shades between black and white. This range enables accurate color reproduction when displaying images with extreme differences between light and dark for excellent picture quality.

    My son plays games on an asus desk top but wanted a 2nd monitor. We picked this one and he loves it. Works and looks great. He plays Worldof Warcraft and many other computer type steam games.

    Everything is great. My only frustration is common to all computer monitors under 27" and that is the inch that has been taken off across the top.

    No noticeable lag, overall good build quality, great for competitive gaming! Only complaint is that changing the volume on it takes navigation of a few menus, but other than that I'm happy with it.
