Nice picture, nice price, on-time delivery
I purchased this monitor almost 3 years ago and it has worked flawlessly since. No dead or stuck pixels, flicker or other refresh issue
Most colors are more vibrant than my older LG monitor. The whites are whiter, the blues are bluer, etc
Multiple inputs, capable of switching between them as well
Requires minor configuration out of the box for a preferable display
Monitor shakes when using the menu buttons due to thin stand

No vertical adjustments, but I knew that before I bought it
Had one since december and just got my other one last week. The color tones from a factory reset were slightly off. It has been corrected through the menu, but it was a bit peculiar. Considering that
HORRIBLE STAND Simply typing will cause the screen to wiggle and it becomes more and more infuriating and noticeable. The screen is on my desk that sits a few feet from my bed. This TV makes a small a
