Rated 2 out of 5 by Nasser Great value, but a TN panel
- Good quality on the plastic parts
- Low price
- DVI cable included
- Wobbly on its stand, to use the buttons to adjust details you need to counter the pushing at the top of the screen, with your other hand
- Terrible view angles (TN Panel)
- Too bright backlight with no option to dim it down (the blacks are too bright at any brightness setting)
- Eco mode does not reduce backlight to a specific value, and instead functions similar to Dynamic Contrast
- Gamma values / Saturation wrong on all of the presets except sRGB
My suggestion: spend an extra £20 to get a monitor based on VA panel technology and you will enjoy the view angles, as well as the deeper blacks (and less eye fatigue due to the bright backlights) much more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Woodspoon Very good budget screen
It's a fantastic screen would recommend it to anyone.
Only downside is as a few people have pointed out, the viewing angle can be a little restricted but for the most part it's a non issue and can be overcome by playing around with some of the settings and switching the Smatrview setting off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by wumpus Cheap, good quality but with poor viewing angles
I decided I'd just go for a cheap monitor as I frequently find myself quite happy with hardware that doesn't sport all the bells and whistles we're told we should want. This seemed well priced so I went for it. In hindsight I'd overlooked one area that this monitor really struggles and that's the viewing angles.
The brightness, contrast, colours, build quality and response time all feel fine but I'm quite gutted by the very limited viewing angle. It's ok horizontally but the vertical fade is terrible. I have to position it at a very particular, raised height to prevent a fade in contrast down the screen and just shifting my posture a little upsets that. That can only really be avoided by sitting much further away but that's not really comfortable.
At the end of the day, it's what I get for cutting corners or failing to do my research. I'm quite happy that I got what I asked for and the Scan service was perfectly reliable and fair.
In future I'll simply pay more attention to viewing angles (or even display types) and probably spend a little more.
