I just bought this monitor for $160 two weeks ago (using it now). The picture looks nicer than my ~$400 monitor at work! BUT, this monitor does have a small amount of ghosting. I game a fair amount and got used to it after a couple hours but if you're looking for a monitor with zero ghosting then IPS is not for you. Also, there's a small amount of backlight bleed in the corner but is only noticeable on an all black screen. Finally, this is a GLOSSY display; it is very reflective. I would not recommend it if you're looking to use this monitor in a brightly lit room. Oh one more thing, DVI (dual link) and VGA only.
Bottom line: If you're looking for a really nice looking monitor without the bells and whistles and don't mind a little ghosting then this is an excellent monitor!
Does anyone know how this is comparable to 23” DellTM UltraSharpTM U2312HM monitor?
I bought this monitor a couple weeks ago from Amazon & am returning it. Just bought 2 U2312HM's from microcenter deal (shipped).
My gripes with this monitor:
Glossy: 1st glossy monitor and I couldn't stand it since I use it for work. It's fine at night but terrible in the day.
Contrast ratio: not as good as other ips monitors I have
Viewing angles: washes out quickly compared to my other IPS monitors
Vesa: Decided to mount my monitors and this one cant (reasonably)
I can't comment on ghosting since I quit gaming 2 years ago, non issue for me.
I used to think slickdeals was saving me money. Then I realized I spend more than ever.
