    Great monitor

    Large bright monitor. It's a great monitor for an office setting where two monitors are needed side by side.

    Good ultrawide monitor for the price

    This is probably one of the best ultrawide gaming monitors you can currently get that has 1440p 144hz. I think you need to use DisplayPort if you want to get 144hz FYI.

    GSync works well most of the time, but it doesn't have an actual gsync module so it's not "officially" supported. Sometimes I had to tinker around with some settings to get it to work right.

    The monitor stand is great, it had a large range of height and tilt adjustment. The speakers are alright, better than nothing, but if you want good sound you'll want external speakers.

    My main complaint is I wish it got a little brighter. My room doesn't get very bright, so it is not a big deal for me. If you get a lot of sunlight in your room, it might be a problem and you might want a brighter monitor. The contrast especially in dark scenes is also not the best. Increasing the contrast from the default setting helps, but it makes but it makes other content like web browsing kind of bad. I'm just nitpicking though. The default settings will probably be fine for most people.

    My monitor arrived in perfect condition, no pixel issues. Setup was easy. It is also pretty good for work, I love the extra screen space.

    Overall a good choice if you are looking for something with these specs.

    Good WFH monitor

    Got this monitor to work for home. I have to open multiple windows when developing processes and flowcharts. This helps put it all in one place instead of getting two monitors. Overall, very happy with my purchase.

    HP has a winner here

    Bought the Omen 27i to replace a LG Ultragear 27" that had a bad power supply. The LG was put of stock so I got the Omen. Ironically the Omen uses LG's Nano IPS panel as well. The Omen however has a much easier to use OSD and better, smaller stand. I play on a Xbox Series S a d it allows for [email protected] with Freesync enabled . I'm using the standard color preset and honestly think it looks great. Games run buttery smooth. The RGB lighting which I changed to blue can be turned off entirely if you wish in the menu. Overall, I'm very pleased with this monitor and prefer it over the LG counterpart.

    A Treat for the Eyes

    Choosing a monitor for your gaming PC is just as important as choosing what components go into your PC. What good is power without a screen capable of showing you what it can do? As the definition of a good framerate soared well past the 60 FPS mark in the era of eSports, so too have monitors evolved to accommodate gamers’ needs for speed. Having been in on the action for several years under the Omen gaming brand, Hewlett-Packard has several takes on high-refresh-rate monitors under its belt already, but their latest model seeks the ultimate in no-compromise gaming: a 165Hz refresh rate on a 1440p IPS panel. It’s a tall order, and not one without a few small missteps along the way, but the HP Omen 27i Gaming Monitor delivers.

    Of note, I am running this on a custom desktop with a Threadripper 2920X, 32GB of RAM, and two AMD Radeon Vega 56 cards in Crossfire. While I had little trouble reaching the performance limits of the monitor with this machine, your mileage may vary greatly depending on your CPU and graphics card combination.

    - Unboxing and Setup

    Packed efficiently and marketed subtly, the HP Omen 27i Gaming Monitor has premium ambitions. The included instructions are easy to follow, and the inclusion of both HDMI and DisplayPort cables is a welcome sight. Two integrated hex bolts connect the monitor to the height-and-tilt adjustable stand, which has plenty of heft. Adjustments are easy and hold firm. The stand has a cavity at the top of the support arm designed for holding headphones, which is a nice convenience feature that helps clean up desk space. Two USB 3.0 ports allow the monitor to be used as a hub for your keyboard, mouse, headset, or any other USB peripheral, and a combined headphone/microphone port allows you to plug your headset directly into the screen if you desire.

    One downside I noticed off the bat is that while the monitor is VESA compatible, the mounts are set at a 45-degree angle (a diamond pattern, whereas most others are square with the screen). If you are planning to mount this screen to a monitor stand or arm, make sure the mount plate can rotate freely!

    The power button and all menu controls are on the backside of the monitor, located along the right side from the viewer’s perspective. I found the positioning a little too inset from the edge of the chassis, making it hard to reach the power button if you’re not sitting in front of the screen. The monitor will automatically switch to the active input source when powering on, or last used if both are active.

    - Image Quality

    The “i” in the model name signifies that this is an in-plane switching (IPS) display. The previous Omen 27 screen used a twisted nematic (TN) display. Simply put, an IPS panel will usually have far superior color and viewing angles than a TN panel, but a TN panel will have higher refresh rates. The Omen 27i is a high-performing IPS panel capable of 165Hz, allowing for both rich color reproduction and high refresh rate gaming, making no major compromise for either.

    In a word, the screen on the Omen 27i is wonderful. The panel gets almost unbelievably bright, produces extremely vivid color, and exhibits minimal ghosting at its highest refresh rate. Backlighting is uniform with zero bleed, there’s no color banding to speak of, and the harshest color transitions (e.g. pure red against pure blue) remain incredibly sharp. While it may not support true HDR, it does support 10-bit color depth which unlocks four times as many possible displayed colors over the more common 8-bit depth, though 10-bit is only available at refresh rates 120Hz and below.

    One great touch is the external lighting both on the backside and bottom of the chassis. These LEDs illuminate the wall and desk, which in practice helps improve perceived contract and also serves to reduce eyestrain by balancing the light all around the monitor. I found it pleasing, if a little dim on the backside LED and a little too bright on the underside.

    - Gaming Performance

    High-refresh gaming spoils you. Within moments of playing my first game of Rocket League and exceeding the 60 Hz barrier I had grown accustomed to with older monitors, I was floored by just how much more fluid the game looked in motion. I will say it’s not as stark a contrast as moving from 30 FPS to 60 FPS is, but there is a definite improvement in visual clarity that high-refresh gaming brings. CS:GO and Overwatch were similarly absolute joys to play at 165 Hz, which was made all the better once setting the monitor’s response time to “Level 1 (Fastest),” reducing ghosting and motion blur to a level so minute I had to go looking for it in high-contrast scenes.

    Since you will need a very beefy computer to hit 165 FPS at 1440p in most titles, eSports or AAA alike, odds are you will not always be at or above this framerate, and as such the Omen 27i is compatible with VESA Adaptive Sync (branded here as AMD Freesync), which refreshes the screen as quickly (or slowly) as your graphics card draws a frame. What this means is the elimination of “screen-tearing,” and a consistent, stable image without the use of Vertical Sync (which increases control latency) when your system can’t keep up with the monitor.

    In testing, I found both Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Grand Theft Auto V dipped well short of the 165 FPS target, but with the monitor’s refresh range being 48Hz to 165Hz, FreeSync smoothed out the action when framerates fell dramatically. This range is also wide enough for Low Frequency Compensation to kick in, so that when framerates fall below 48 FPS the action will continue to be as smooth as possible by “doubling up” the refresh rate to match the framerate (e.g. at 47FPS the monitor will switch to 94Hz, 46 FPS switches to 92Hz, etc. until framerate recovers to 48 or higher).

    I was concerned that the size of the monitor was too small for 1440p resolution, at arm’s length the viewing distance is perfect for normal (100%) scaling within Windows, and the image still plenty large enough to enjoy. The image is just sharp enough that the additional render load of 1440p is justified, as I doubt 4K would look significantly better at 27” for how much strain it puts on a graphics card.

    - Firmware Troubles

    I encountered a few small issues in my testing with the monitor that can be attributed mostly to firmware bugs. At the time of this review I am using firmware version LIM111.

    The smaller issues include brightness settings for the ambient backlighting not holding after turning the monitor off (though it will remember on/off), only a few seconds timeout before switching from a “no signal” input to the active one, and the headphone/microphone port on the monitor itself exhibiting line noise in the form of an audible hissing that doesn’t exist on my PC’s other outputs. The first two could be easily remedied through a future firmware update, though I question whether the line noise is due to firmware code or a poor quality digital audio converter in the monitor.

    I experienced one significant issue otherwise. After about 30 minutes of desktop use at 165Hz, the monitor will flicker gray a few times over the course of a few seconds, then remain stable for about another 30 minutes before repeating. I did not encounter this problem with the monitor set to 144Hz. I’m not sure whether this is an issue with my graphics cards or an issue with the monitor itself; however, HP’s support site lists the Omen 27i as having a maximum vertical refresh rate of 144Hz. With the screen clearly advertised as having a 165Hz refresh rate, I question whether 165Hz is an overclock that the panel is not capable of sustaining at all times.

    - Bottom Line

    The HP Omen 27i Gaming Monitor doesn’t compromise picture quality to reach a high refresh rate, and has rightfully earned its place at the center of my PC gaming setup. Minor firmware inconveniences aside, the panel speaks for itself. It’s difficult to find anything this screen doesn’t do well when it comes to gaming, and it works plenty great as a daily driver for all but the most scrutinous video or photo editing work that calls for precise color. I’m enjoying this panel so much that I’m strongly considering picking up a second one to round out my setup rather than using any random monitor as my side screen, especially knowing that unlike random “gaming-focused” brands, this comes with the backing of an HP warranty. It’s premium and it’s priced accordingly, but the HP Omen 27i Gaming Monitor comes highly recommended!

    Great display

    I have an ASUS FHD gaming panel that offers 144hz. I wanted something in between 4K and FHD. When I saw this gaming monitor in the store for $379, for Black Friday, I knew it was one I was looking for. So I spent the next couple hours researching this item. The only downside I see with this is the lack of HDR. But despite not having HDR its IPS color gamut is so great I don't think you'll even notice. I have my Xbox Series X attached to this monitor running at 1440p with 120hz with VRR and this is an amazing experience. Love all the enhancements that this console brings to older titles. Wait for another sale and purchase this monitor.

    Great Monitor IS VESA MOUNT COMPATABLE

    I wanted to add a review highlighting that the monitor IS compatible with VESA mounts.

    The following video shows how to access the VESA mounting bracket.

    You must first remove the back 6-8 screws.

    It mounts at a 45 degree angle.

    Awesome monitor!

    Excellent gaming monitor! Currently have a Xbox series X hooked up and playing 120hz at 1080p, and this thing rips! Night and day coming from a 65” at 60hz. It’s quite insane, not THE fastest but it’ll get the job done. Has a very crisp and clean picture the settings allow you to maximize and fine tune everything how you want, the response time is phenomenal!! Cherry on top was the RGB lighting on the rear that you can change to whatever color you’d like... Straight Fire, don’t wait. Hurry up and buy!

    Great for gaming

    (This is my sister’s Best Buy account but I am the one using it fyi) I was searching for a monitor for awhile because I was setting up my gaming setup and the 27i had been on my radar for awhile. I knew the standard specs of what I wanted for what kind of gaming I would be doing.

    -1440p

    -144 hz or more

    -1ms response time

    -Freesync and G-sync

    -Flat IPS panel

    I do my gaming on my xbox series x which I love. I also in the future plan to make a rig in which I can connect to this monitor through DisplayPort. This monitor checked all the specs that I wanted and added some flair. Really cool design. RGB lighting. Nice and simple software. Not to mention that whenever I hop into an fps like COD or Rainbow i feel silky smooth gameplay in rich 2k resolution. Freesync works well with the AMD chip in the series x. The monitor also has no dead pixels and minimal ips glow like other people have had issues with theirs. I feel like they just got defective units. Also, be smart people. If you are going to buy a monitor for $500 dollars, buy a warranty to make sure you get your money’s worth. I honestly could go on a long list of pros about the monitor but I do bot wish to make this review absurdly long. I do however have some minor cons because no product is perfect.

    -Lack of HDR for $500

    -Poor Stand Mobility

    -Weird Diamond Vesa pattern

    -Although the software is nice and simple the buttons on the bank are kind of janky.

    I feel that for this monitor price range competitors have HDR but the reason I do not care for the lack of is because most monitors at this price point that have HDR are not that good. So missing out on a feature that would likely be sub par is fine by me. I also wish there was a swivel on the stand but its fine for what I meed but some others may want more mobility. Which leads to the weird VESA mount. It is Vesa compatible but the pattern is diagonal so you're stand might not fit if it cant rotate. Again not a problem for me but could cause issues for some other people. The buttons on the back are kind of weird but I don't mid because the software is convenient for what I need. The monitor is also pretty easy to clean. A microfiber cloth works well to swipe away some smudge and spots but don't be too hard because I feel like the screen is a little vulnerable. But I wouldn't worry too much about it since Im sure the durability of the screen is fine and plus I purchased a warranty. Overall Great monitor. I really recommend this for gaming. Plus I got a sweet black friday deal and got it for $380 plus a $60 warranty. Well worth the money and Im looking forward to using this monitor for as long as it will last me( hopefully a long time ) I will update my review if anything unpleasant happens to the monitor over time. Whether it be wear and tear or warranty issues. Thank you for your time!

    Exceptional Gaming Monitor

    Gaming has really exploded over the past handful of years thanks to the rise of E-Sports and PC gaming - so naturally those who want the best gaming experience need to view it on a great display. So far with my use of the HP Omen 27i - its a critical part of your gaming experience!

    SETUP:

    - When I took this out of the box, the first thing i noticed was how heavy duty this monitor is! The stand and monitor are heavy, made of nice high end materials, and really feels like it will last forever. It definitely goes with the aesthetics of a gamer.

    - Once you connect the Monitor to the stand (or there is an option to mount it to a 3rd party mount), you are pretty much ready to go! There are hookups for HDMI or DisplayPort which you can connect your PC to and then plug in the power and its ready to go.

    - I really like the stand functionality. You can raise and lower is with ease because of how stable the stand is, and the screen also tilts up & down. It has a wider tilt facing up than down but that’s okay.

    - The monitor’s menu gives you a lot of options to really define how you want the image to look. They have preset options or you can do your own setup - you can also change the colors of the Ambient and Bottom lighting to pretty much any color your want with different variations of style.

    PROS:

    - Once you start using the Omen Monitor you are instantly impressed with the colors and clarity of the monitor. The 27inch display really makes you feel immersed in what you are doing on the monitor.

    - The Ambient and Bottom lighting is something I have really enjoyed! I think it is a great design to have the bottom lighting and the edged backlighting as well. It just adds such a fun experience to your game playing, especially if it is a dark room. Plus, if you don’t want it on you can quickly turn the lights on/off with the flick of a switch.

    - The most important part of this monitor is going to be the frame rate. A huge perk of gaming on a PC is that you can run higher than 60hz and this Omen Monitor can go up to 165hz which runs really really smooth. You can tell a big difference in responsiveness and overall clarity. This aspect is a must have if you want to really have a great PC gaming experience.

    - Outside of PC gaming, I ran this monitor on my PS4, Nintendo Switch, and just doing normal computer like web surfing and watching Movies/TV. As expected, it performed really well with my console gaming experiences and movies looked great in its well defined smooth HD. Its just good functionality to know this Monitor doesn’t have to strictly be for gaming if you need it for other things - even if you need to do work/school from home.

    WHAT ITS MISSING:

    - No 4K HDR

    - No Speakers

    - Now I don’t think these really matter to a PC gamer - you will probably be using your own speakers/headphones and most PC games favor frame rate and graphics over 4K HDR. However, I am just making it aware that this monitor does not have those functions if you wanted it.

    - My overall point is, I really did no not have any cons about this monitor.

    BOTTOM LINE:

    - You wouldn’t buy a 4K disc player just to connect it to non 4K TV. So why would you buying a gaming PC and connect it so a monitor that doesn’t do more than 60hz? If you are a true gamer you want the best experience and this monitor will give it to you. The high HZ rate, display customization, ambient lighting, and connectivity make this is an ideal gaming monitor for those who want the best!

    So far it’s amazing!

    I was skeptical to buy this because I couldn’t confirm that it would run 120hz on the Xbox one x. Well I took a chance and I’m glad I did! This monitor runs 1080p @120hz on my one x perfectly! I couldn’t be happier.

    Really good monitor

    So, everyone is in quarantine right now, and I'm right there with you. This monitor is definitely going to help make the time go by quicker. It is a true pleasure to look at. The picture is clear, bright, and vibrant (my soon to be brother in law is legally blind without his contacts in, and his exact words were "even a blind person can see clearly with this monitor.") I've tried to get this monitor to have motion blur or stuttering and I have yet to see either. On the visuals, I can't recommend this highly enough.

    There is one glaring flaw with it though. The built-in speakers. They are awful. The sound is flat and tinny. It is good enough if you have no other option, but seriously, don't buy this thinking it will get you out of having to buy speakers. This is overall a great monitor and the built-in speakers could come in handy, but buy this for the merits of the display only.

    A great monitor loaded with features

    So, this is my first "gaming" monitor, and I'm pretty impressed. Previously, the only thing I'd bother looking for in a monitor is a high refresh rate. ASUS takes this a step (several steps?) farther, and threw in a slew of interesting features, like a built in multi-level bluelight filter, FPS display, on-screen reticle (which the monitor calls "practice mode") and various display settings optimized for the kind of game you're playing (MOBA mode washes out most colors except for things like health bars, to improve visiblity, for example).

    I wish I could take pictures of the bluelight filter in action, but my phone keeps auto-correcting the color on me. It's one of the most impressive features of the monitor, in my opinion.

    If you're looking for a fast, freesync monitor that's seriously designed with gamers in mind, this is an excellent choice.

    I keep getting ASUS displays and I keep loving 'em

    This monitor is really an amazing upgrade for my PC setup. Besides being able to do everything from gaming to accurately displaying photos and videos for editing, it’s just gorgeous to look at….with the screen on or off. Right out of the box this monitor has a sexy look to it. The bezels are small and sleek and the screen was the right amount of matte finish and the back has a slight curve to it. The box came with a monitor, stand, some paperwork, a decent sized Display port (I’d say 4 to 6 foot) power cable (I’ll add it to the 100s piled up, but still nice to have) and that’s it and that’s all you need.

    I am replacing a very old Asus monitor I was using as a secondary display that is on a dual monitor arm mount so I didn’t need to use the stand but I gave it a quick test and it is really nice. Not too different from other Asus stands I’ve had before and I mean that in a good way. It’s heavy enough you could bust a door down with it which also means it’s not going to break or at risk of tipping over your beautiful new display. I actually like the stand so much that I took my old monitor down and put it on the new stand to use in another part of my house! I couldn’t just put it in a closet, it seemed like a waste. So if you’re planning on mounting this monitor (standard vesa mount) remember the stand will also attach to most other vesa mount displays you may have that need a better stand. Just a thought.

    Moving on to the actual display of this monitor. There are plenty of reviews and specs already that can lay out the numbers and tell you ratings etc, I’m not going to waste my time or yours writing those out, but what I think is important in a review is how the product actually works in a real world scenario. Numbers are great, but do they result in good experience? Well, in this case, yes, yes they do.

    WOW. I fired this puppy up next to my larger, 4K Asus “main display” and was blown away how much better it looked, 1080 or not. The IPS screen is a game changer, I basically can’t go back now. The viewing angles are amazing, the contrast is clean and darks are dark and brights are bright. I do a lot of photo and video work and the ability to more accurately see how the images look is saving me time already and I’ve only been at it a week. I tossed on some full 1080p movies I had and they looked great. Smooth, clean, and rich. Then I played a few different games from older to newer and they all played wonderfully. (using an NVIDIA 1070. As others have mentioned, the G-Sync may say “not compatible” but it is, and it will reflect that soon with the next update I’m sure.) but it does work now and it works well. Games were so much smoother and vivid and I was playing better and getting better scores because of it! I wasn’t sure I’d want to play on a smaller screen at 1080 when I have a larger screen in full 4K right next to it but with the IPS, the refresh rate, and the vivid color reproduction, I knew this would be my new go to monitor for games.

    I'm extremely happy with this monitor and will be able to use it to game, edit, and watch videos in new and better ways than before. I've been trying to find something "negative" to say but I can't really find anything. There's a few personal preference issues I have, like button layout etc but they're not bad features, just things I personally don't prefer. But gosh, the way everything else works, I can't complain!

    Pros:

    - 144hz refresh rate

    - Small slim bezel, great for multiple display

    - Strong sturdy stand with portrait mode option

    - Very wide viewing angles

    - IPS panel...can't beat it.

    - G-sync and AMDs FreeSync compatible

    - Good calibration out of the box

    Cons:

    - Buttons are a bit confusing I guess? Not bad, just takes a learning curve to get used to

    - If I get really picky, the back inputs are a little tight and cables need to twist some to fit

    - Speakers are not great but who uses those anymore? And it’s still a pro that they have any at all. Good enough in a pinch

    No matter your needs, if you like good quality displays for mid range price, this is a great option for you. If you’re thinking about it, buy it...or 2. They're a great design for multiple displays!

    High School Teacher Taking it to the NEXT LEVEL

    The monitor works great. It easily adapted to my previous 3 monitor-setup.

    As a full-time high school teacher, college professor, software engineer part-time, and a Ph.D. candidate Student, I needed a 4th monitor to promptly answer questions posted through Zoom or Google Meets Video Conferences. It allows me to remain organized and on top of projects, lesson plans, and current in responding to my students at every level (during school and after school). This encourages my students to remain engaged.

    Having that 4th screen built to be positioned at a 90-degree angle, I can see my numerous lines of custom code while I am evaluating code from my other colleagues.

    Could just be my bad luck but...

    So I chose to buy 2 of these monitors during the BlackFriday sale they were $170 each which is a steal! So I bought one but the second one I bought had a small stuck pixel (I knew it was not dead because it was stuck on a bright purple) so I tried to bring it back with a couple of the tests but still didn’t work so I returned it and had a new one shipped to me and that one had a defect in it aswell and as crazy as it is to say there was fuzz between the panel that I could see and it was bigger than the dead pixel from the first one so I ended up taking it back AGAIN and received another one that ended up being fully working other than that issue I’ve LOVED these monitors for the deal I’ll also include a link here for a video all about programming the colors and getting it just right!

    Definitely recommend watching this video before or when you get this monitor

    Competitive Gaming Monitor

    I have been looking for a 144 Hz IPS monitor with adaptive sync to use for gaming and settled on the ASUS VG249Q. My first impression upon opening the box was the monitor was gorgeous and it was apparent that the design team at ASUS put a lot of thought into the aesthetics.

    Pros:

    * The stand is very sturdy and has no problem holding the monitor in the landscape or portrait position. This is a nice feature as many monitors cannot be easily rotated. It is ergonomic with the height, swivel, and tilt being adjustable.

    * IPS panel is beautiful. This monitor truly offers outstanding and accurate colors at all viewing angles. I compared this to my current monitor and the difference is definitely noticeable.

    * Adaptive-Sync technology. This was extremely important to me as I have a NVIDIA graphics card and want to be able to take full advantage of the 144 Hz monitor without screen tearing, stuttering, or input lag. This technology allows for comparable performance to G-Sync but without the huge price tag associated with it. Additionally if you have an AMD graphics card it has Free-Sync. After playing multiple games of Apex, COD, and The Division 2 I can say I am impressed with how it performed. The NVIDIA control panel does warn you that it isn't compatible which is likely because their list hasn't been updated yet. I did not have any issues force applying it. I achieved high frame rates and no noticeable lag, stuttering, or tearing. Once you experience a 144 Hz monitor you can never go back!

    * Extreme Low Motion Blur technology. I tried playing several games with and without this option enabled. It is a cool feature and definitely sharpens the image.

    *Game Plus: This is a cool feature that allows you to place a crosshair, a timer, an on screen FPS counter, and align your display. These functions are all accessible from the monitor. While these are not a must have for me, I think they are a nice addition.

    Indeterminate:

    * Shadow boost. While this option is supposed to brighten areas of the game without overexposing them, I found that it was hit or miss especially in The Division 2. Certain dark areas would brighten well while others remained dark.

    Overall, I am very happy with this monitor. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a 1080p gaming monitor. It has a lot of great features at a competitive price.

    Work Hard, Play Hard

    ---- Summary ----

    Pros:

    - High resolution (1920 x 1080)

    - Bright and vivid colors

    - Quick refresh rate (75Hz)

    - Equipped with AMD FreeSync technology

    - Low response time (4 ms) reduces “ghosting”

    - IPS technology provides a wide viewing angle and color consistency

    - ComfortView reduces eye strain

    - Two HDMI ports

    - VESA mountable

    - Modern design

    - Thin bezel

    Cons:

    - Stand doesn’t allow height adjustment

    ---- Review ----

    Design:

    With a 27” screen size and thin bezel, this monitor provides a lot of screen real estate. I’ve found that this enables higher productivity when working and a more immersive gaming experience, compared to smaller monitors or solely using my laptop. It fits well on my desk and looks great, thanks to the modern design and textured pattern on the back. It’s VESA mountable but includes a stand that easily snaps into place without any tools required. Without the stand, the monitor is about 14” tall, and with the stand, it’s about 18” tall. Unfortunately, the stand doesn’t allow height adjustment, but it’s tiltable (-5 degrees/21 degrees). Along with the power cable, an HDMI cable is included in the box which is an addition I greatly appreciate. The connectivity options on the back of the monitor include a security lock slot, power connector, two HDMI ports, and an audio line-out port. Subtly located on the bottom right of the monitor are the power and on-screen menu buttons. I’m a fan of the design, which I’d describe as straightforward but also elegant.

    Features & Performance:

    This monitor not only delivers exceptional clarity with its full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, but also an extremely smooth experience with its 4ms response time, 75Hz refresh rate, and AMD FreeSync technology. In my opinion, these are the standout features and reason enough to get this monitor. I connect my gaming laptop to this monitor via HDMI and really enjoy the gaming experience. The display is super responsive, so there’s no “ghosting” effect. Additionally, colors are bright and vivid. AMD FreeSync effectively eliminates stuttering and tearing that can occur when the display’s refresh rate and the content’s frame rate differ but be aware that you must have a compatible graphics card on your PC/laptop. I’ve thoroughly tested games like Fortnite and Call of Duty: Warzone and they both look flawless on this monitor. Working from home or regular everyday use is just as great. Additional features that further enhance this monitor are IPS technology and ComfortView. In-plane switching (IPS) technology provides wide viewing angles and consistent colors while ComfortView reduces blue light emissions. If you’re unfamiliar, blue light emission can lead to eye fatigue and strain. Compared to monitors that don’t have a feature like ComfortView, I do notice a significant difference in how my eyes feel during longer working or gaming sessions. It’s a feature I didn’t know existed, but now I don’t want to go without it. This monitor has all the features I could wish for complemented by impressive performance.

    Verdict:

    There are numerous monitors on the market at a wide range of prices. The refresh rate, resolution, and other features of this monitor might not measure up to the high-end options, but at this price point, I think it’s a fantastic bang for your buck. Simply put, gaming and working on this monitor is a great experience. For me, this beautifully designed, high-performance monitor easily earns five stars.

    Very good monitor, with a caution for VESA mountin

    Good image quality; I bought this on sale and the image quality was typical for a unit at its regular price, so this was an excellent value. It has a 1080p max resolution which is good for what I am using it for; a display for a mini pc I use for music streaming. It is wall mounted, so the larger fonts are great.

    The only caution is that if you plan on using the VESA mount holes, is that unlike other monitors I have, the mount holes are recessed behind a removable panel. Some mounts may not work; mine was large enough to bridge the recess, but I had to do a hardware store run to get longer screws to make sure I had enough threads captured ( see pic). This was a replacement monitor, so I used the mount I had, They did not have a display sample, so I did not know about this until I opened the box.

    No VESA Mount

    Love this monitor. I thought about buying a second one. I was gonna buy a dual monitor mount for it until I looked behind and saw NO VESA mount. I can't believe that I didn't notice it before the purchase.

    I would look for other monitors with a VESA mount. I've looked around for adapters and they don't make one for this specific monitor.

    Now I'll have to buy two new monitors with the VESA mount.

    I haven't had any other issues with it. Colors look great.

    Decent Entry-Level(ish) Monitor

    1st, let me start by telling you how to set the monitor to the max refresh of 75hz as 99 times out of 100, Windows will NOT set it to what it can do.

    Right Click your desktop --> Display Settings --> Scroll down to Advanced Display Settings --> Display Adapter Properties for (Monitor name here) --> List All Modes --> 1920 x 1080 75 hertz.

    Dell advertises the display as a gaming monitor and does a fairly decent job at it. Initial impressions were mixed when I first set up and gave it a go. Assembly was straightforward and super easy. No tools required. Build quality is great and using the stand is really stable. There is no height adjustment so keep that in mind but there is a tilt option.

    Super thin bezels makes it a very attractive display when viewing all sorts of content. Nothing fancy or flashy at all about this monitor. 100mm x 100mm Vesa mounting. Comes with it own HDMI cable and power cord. Pretty basic, but that's all you need. Has 2 HDMI inputs as well and really nice if you want to use it as a display for streaming boxes or a game console.

    Out of the box and firing it up, Color Accuracy was surprising on point. Only a few minor tweaks needed to make me happy. There are many presets to choose from as well if you are not one to customize colors exactly to your liking.

    While gaming, depending of course on what hardware you are using, is where the monitor shines. I never dropped below the 75 FPS while playing any game on my steam library on ULTRA or Max settings. I did notice some very minor ghosting playing fast paced FPS's but nothing too bad to warrant a complaint. Other than that, everything was buttery smooth @ 75.

    Keep in mind that the real estate is wonderful. 27 inches is a good size for all types, but I think in my own opinion it is a little wasteful to have it handicapped @ 1080. But IF FHD gaming is your forte, then by all means, you are golden with this.

    Pros

    Color Accuracy

    Build Quality

    Great for a lot of gaming

    2x HDMI inputs

    Real estate

    Cons

    FHD for it's size (but you know this already)

    75hz @ 4ms is good for most but not for competitive gaming

    Price - (going by MSRP)

    Worth the upgrade

    Right out of the box, you get a glimpse of how good of a size this 27 inch monitor is. 3/4 bezels are extremely thin and makes the monitor look really nice. I don't know if it is just me but there is a black frame within the display that sort of distracts the user to believe that the bezel is bigger than intended.

    Power cable, HDMI, and Display port cable are included. The mount is solid and the way you can move the screen around and rotate to portrait is a huge plus. Take note though that this is not wall mountable so if this is something you are looking for you need to look elsewhere.

    For a 1080p, 27", IPS, HDR, 240hz capable monitor, WITH INTERNAL SPEAKERS that don't suck, at this price point is a good deal. When gaming on this monitor, the display comes alive when you have a capable graphics card. Talk about smooth frame rates. Counter Strike and FIFA was buttery smooth while gaming on high settings. Again, the only limit if your graphics card!

    This is aimed for the young gamer/media user that is looking to upgrade from their included PC monitor or their aging standard IPS display. They want the best bang for their buck, look no further.

    Remarkable Gaming Monitor!

    Acer makes amazing monitors. After using this monitor for a couple of days, I can safely say this monitor is indeed an incredible one. This monitor includes many features that can improve your gaming experience. I will go into what these features are in this review as well as my thoughts while using them.

    First, the unboxing experience. This monitor is tightly packed into a box. I did struggle taking it out since the monitor was packed between two thick pieces of Styrofoam. Although tedious, I do like the amount of protection Acer included. But I do recommend you get some help when taking the monitor out of the box because I did have to aggressively pull it out. Set-up was as easy as putting a stick vacuum together. No extra tools were required and after a couple of minutes of set-up, I was ready to use the monitor.

    As soon as I turned on the monitor, I was confused about why the display was on the darker side. I had my brightness at max but the monitor still remained dark. Little did I know that I unknowingly passed over the “Max Brightness” setting in the monitor’s Picture Settings. I toggled this on and brightness was completely set to normal. After toggling this setting, I truly felt the wide array of vivid colors. This monitor is 1080P but certainly appears a slightly better resolution due to the HDR-enabled feature that improves the overall quality of the display using a broader range of colors.

    I did try out several games using this display on both PC and console. Honestly, I did not notice anything unusual while gaming. Everything performed well and smoothly. The display can overclock to a whopping 280Hz refresh rate. The monitor also offers a variety of different modes depending on what you are doing. My favorite modes that made games appear better were “Graphics” and “HDR.” I found that these modes provided the best “visuals” for the games I was playing. You can also manually adjust picture and colors through the monitor’s settings if you aren’t satisfied with the loaded modes.

    Here are some of my thoughts and more features:

    - I love how Acer added a Joystick to get around in the monitor’s settings. This should be a permanent physical feature in all modern

    monitors.

    - Minimal bezels are also a huge plus for this monitor.

    - IPS display does allow for amazing viewing angles. Great if you have a multi-monitor set-up.

    - The monitor is vertical and horizontally adjustable.

    - The monitor contains 2 HDMI 2.0 ports as well as 1 DisplayPort 1.2.

    - The monitor is not wall mountable.

    - Built-in speakers are surprisingly great. Most manufacturers cheap out on the speakers but Acer seriously did an excellent job with the

    speakers for this monitor. The speakers are some of the best I’ve heard in a monitor.

    Overall, this monitor is certainly remarkable. Beautiful visuals and crisp gameplay are some of the things this monitor has to offer. I have not run into any issues so far and am glad about how everything has turned out. If you require a gaming monitor, I do recommend you try this one out!

    Vibrant colors, super smooth gameplay

    The Acer Nitro XV271 Z gaming monitor paired amazingly well with my gaming laptop's NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, providing a smooth, stutter and tear-free gameplay experience across a number of genre games I played on it including racing games, FPS, and RPG/MPORG. The bezels on the monitor are pretty thin, around 1/16th of an inch, though keep in mind there is a pixel-less border along the top and sides of the screen, setting the viewable screen in about 1/4 inch from the outside edge of the monitor. The chin of the monitor is about 3/4 inch tall and has a single status LED in the bottom right-hand corner that cannot be disabled. On-screen display (OSD) controls for the monitor are on the back of the monitor and include a 5-function joystick and three programmable hot keys which you can customize to perform the adjustments you use most frequently.

    The monitor includes a blue light filter setting that reduces the amount of blue light emitted (by 50% or 60%) in order to protect your eyes from strain and overexposure, but note that this will give your screen a slightly yellowish tint. It's less noticeable, though, after your eyes adjust to the color offset and I did find that the filtered brightness was easier on the eyes over longer sessions in front of the screen. The Adaptive Contrast Management (ACM) setting utilizes a setting to automatically adjust brightness and contrast of the monitor, though personally I found the automatic settings to be too bright (without blue light filtering). There are default profiles in the OSD for Action, Racing, Sports, Standard, ECO, Graphics, and HDR, as well as a User profile that you can customize and save for quick access.

    Built into the monitor are two 2W speakers which, honestly, sounded better than I expected, and were decently capable although the sound quality won't be blowing anyone away. Thankfully the monitor also includes a headphone out port, so you can attach a set of external speakers or headphones for a better audio experience.

    Setup was plug-and-play using the included HDMI cable to both my laptop and gaming console, though I appreciate the inclusion of a DisplayPort 1.2 port and cable, as well, since that allowed me to connect it to my desktop rig. The monitor has a second HDMI 2.0 port for a total of 3 simultaneous inputs. Despite the monitor's size, it is surprisingly lightweight, even when attached to the included stand. The metal center column of the stand attaches to a weighted plastic base that swivels a full 360 degrees. The monitor can also be pivoted into portrait orientation in both directions and tilted about 20 degrees up/down. The height of the monitor is adjustable from about 1.5" from the tabletop to 6.5" and all positioning adjustments are quite smooth. If you prefer, the stand can be removed and the monitor is VESA mount compatible.

    Out of the box, I checked for dead pixels and found no issues with either whole pixels nor any sub pixels. This is a 1080p monitor and not 4K which, given the amount of screen real estate, I thought the resolution would be a bit low for this size monitor. However, text and object edges are still very crisp and clean at this pixel density. Since it is an IPS display, viewing angles at near parallel produced little to no variation in color or clarity of the image on the screen.

    The native resolution of the monitor is 1920 x 1080 and the refresh rate can be set up to 240 Hz, though it can be overclocked in the OSD to achieve up to 280Hz. Enabling FreeSync Premium with compatible AMD GPUs effectively eliminates tearing and stuttering, while Visual Response Boost (VRB) decreases blur in fast moving images to effectively achieve the equivalent of 1ms MPRT. This along with the 0.5ms GtG response time give this monitor ultra smooth, blur-free motion during gameplay.

    The color depth is 8-bit and the color space spec is 99% sRGB making this monitor suitable for digital video post-production and editing in addition to gaming. I did notice though, that in pitch dark conditions, there was some degree of IPS glow, manifesting as slightly orangey-brownish illumination along the edges and particularly in the corners of the screen. Despite this, I still feel the contrast of the monitor is very good in general. Since the brightness can go up to 400 nits with HDR enabled, I found it to be plenty bright in a well-lit room and bumped up the level of detail in dark scenes.

    Overall, this monitor performed well for me while gaming, doing creative work, and even watching movies. The high refresh rates and low latency have definitely improved my gaming experience, and the performance and visuals look great, even at 1080p.

    Superb FHD Gaming Monitor

    Out of the box, and after a few tweaks in the OSD menu the Acer Nitro performed over my expectations in gaming. I changed the Color Temp (Warm by default) to Custom and did a couple of custom tweaks that fit my preference. Overall, for FHD content/gaming this screen is a beast.

    Packaging/Setup

    ===============

    Inside the sturdy box you get your Monitor, Arm, Base Stand, literature, Power Cord and an HDMI and DP cable. Setup is a breeze and should take a couple of minutes. The screen is non vesa mountable and must be on its stand. The base uses a tool less screw that connects to the arm and then you snap it into the rear of the screen. That's it. Super simple.

    Screen can rotate 360 degrees, tilt forward or backwards, adjustable height and can be used in landscape or portrait (90 degrees in either direction).

    Performance

    ===============

    Note the monitor has 3 inputs. 2x HDMI 2.0 and 1 DP port. You can use the HMDI connections to take advantage of the built in speakers if you lack headphones or a sound system or just plain connect consoles or anything else to the screen.

    Using DP, Windows 10 auto detected the monitor and set it to it's default of 240hz (which is still great), but I wanted to take advantage of the OC'd 280hz .5ms rate. To do this, you must go into the OSD Menu -> System -> Over Clock -> On. Once you do that, go into your display settings, under advanced display settings and change the Refresh Rate to 280.

    Played CS, BFV, CoD, and Apex and everything was buttery smooth. No tearing, no stuttering, nothing to make your experience unpleasant. Being FREESYNC you can also enable G-SYNC to it as well like I did. Your experience will vary depending on your settings and hardware.

    Other Thoughts

    ===============

    Not being overly gaming looking(?), if that is a thing, the screen is perfect for all applications. Whether it be in a game room or office setting, the screen fits in anywhere. No flashy lights in the back, just an Acer Logo behind the top right.

    Just make sure you have the desk space for this 27 inch monitor. Base leaves a very small footprint but just remember as I stated, you can't mount it.

    Screen is an IPS panel and has great viewing angels. HDR with great colors and up to 400 nits brightness (not great, but not bad at all). Color Gamut out of the box requires minor tweaking, but man, when set correctly, visuals look GREAT.

    Overall, if you want a super fast refresh rate competitive FHD gaming monitor, then Acer made this for you. Highly recommend with the only drawback being non-mountable.

    A fantastic value for 1080P gaming

    As an owner of the 1440p Acer Predator 27" Monitor I had to decide what to get my wife who is rather new to PC gaming and so it was the Acer Nitro XV. Before I get started I must say that I cannot say enough good things about the Acer Predator monitor series. They look like a gamers monitor but also professional and not overly saturated and gaudy. When I got my Acer Predator I gave it 5 stars and that is also what I am giving this one, although I would not hesitate to say that I think my Predator monitor is better (but it's also more expensive so...).

    The monitor comes in a nice, very cool looking box and is very clear when you open it how to get everything out. Although me like a big dummy discovered this after I started pawing at the box and not able to get the thing out. For starters make sure you read what it says to open it right side up. Again, I did not so part of the difficulty I had was getting it right side up.

    Next, if you have a friend or significant other nearby it would be great if they could grab the box while you pull. Don't get me wrong, it's easy enough with one person but it takes way too long when you're excited and wanting to see your new monitor. So once I got it out of the two huge styrofoam blocks (it's VERY well protected folks) then it was unwrapping plastic, ties, you know the drill. 2 and a half hours later...just kidding, 5 minutes later, we had it out on the table.

    Congratulations, that was the hardest part of getting the monitor up and going. Actually putting it together is a piece of cake that took me just a few minutes. You put the stand into the base of the monitor, it locks. Then take the actual base on to the stand with a screw. Don't worry, no screwdriver is needed. They have a nice little piece of metal that pops up and allows you to turn the screw (seriously why can't all companies do this???) Once you get it tighened down it is just a matter of moving it up and down (which is quite easy mind you) and then you're ready to fire it up.

    Windows 10 immediately recognized it but did not install any special monitor driver. I used the PC for a bit without any issue so not sure there's any real need to do so but I did end up going to Acers website and getting the drivers there to install. Once installed I saw no difference but at least I know if there are issues it is not my drivers.

    I was hoping that the Nitro copied the Predators excellent joystick model and I was happy to see that it did. If you are really fearful of, or dread changing your monitor settings due to how difficult it is to navigate well don't worry here because using the small joystick makes things very easy to be whizzing around in settings and getting it all exactly how you like it. Pick color calibration, also pick what type of media you are going to be using: movies, sports, gaming, etc.

    Of course one great thing about this monitor is the overclocking and be aware it is not on by default. I believe out of the box the default is 120Hz but you can bump it up to the extreme, 280Hz, with the menu and I would suggest that you do this immediately. The monitor also ships to a default of warm 2 and you do not want to use this. Either switch to standard, self tune or do like I did and use Cool 2 setting which is a great look...but your mileage may vary.

    After you've chosen all of your settings its time to fire up a game and see how it all looks. Well first of all I can tell you this monitor is nice and bright and has a lot of WOW! factor in just displaying even the basic Windows 10 screen. Everything looks bright and vibrant and colorful (but not overly exaggerated like "torch mode" in stores where everything is bright and colorful enough to blind you.

    My first game is Doom Eternal. A game that now supports raytracing, DLSS and the new AMD Fidelity X Super Resolution. I got in and fired it up to Ultra Max (I have a Radeon 6800M on the just released AMD ROG STRIX G15 Advantage. What's this? An error message about how my new monitor does not support HDR?

    Ok, here's the part where you have to know if you haven't used HDR before that you have to enable it in Windows. Just connecting up an HDR monitor will not give you HDR. So I went and did that in Control Panel. Come back, try again, nope. Reboot, try again, nope. HDR works just fine in Windows but not this game? Well hopefully it was just this game. So off I go to boot up Ori, a game that sports fantastic HDR by the way, and yes HDR comes up just fine. After a couple of quick tests with other games I find it was just Doom Eternal that didn't see the HDR for some reason.

    Now some of you may be wondering how do you know if it's running in 60Hz, 120Hz, or 280Hz? Well simple, fire up the monitor settings, and in the settings you'll see a template overlay. This will tell you the Hz in Windows and then change over to game frames per second (FPS) in the actual game. This will help you to know that your monitor is doing everything you paid for it to do. Last but not least there are two ways to use the cable management clip that comes on the back of your monitor near the base. I know when you set this up you were wondering what in the world this is for? Well that's for cable management and there's a wrong way to do it (see pic) and there's a right way to do it (see pic after I redid it!) so be sure to get that kosher now and don't put it off, lest you have a friend come over and #cablemanagement you.

    So in the end I have to say this is an extraordinary, high quality, amazing looking, 27" monitor and what I would consider to be a value-version of the vaunted, many say the best, Acer Predator 27" monitor. And folks, you just can't say much better than that in my view.

    Be sure to take a look at the pics I've attached for more information related to this review. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    5 star monitor with 3 star speakers

    The secure packaging and quick, simple, no-tools assembly left a great first impression before I ever turned on the monitor. After connecting to my Windows 10 PC via HDMI, my computer automatically mirrored the monitor and was ready to go. After a few display setting tweaks exploring the built-in display options, I was ready to jump into a game.

    Gameplay:

    I launched League of Legends and everything went smoothly until the match actually started. I immediately started experience horrendous lag and what looked like frame drops, despite my in-game fps settings telling me things were fine. I swapped to a different monitor to finish off the game and went exploring as to what may be happening.

    After some research on the Nvidia forums, I installed the latest GeForce update for my graphics card and launched League again. This time, everything ran smoothly with no frame drops and all the smoothness I expect out of a gaming monitor.

    The other titles I've played so far (ARK, Rust, Minecraft, Everquest 2) don't require quite the real time response as a MOBA like League, but the monitor performed as well as expected with other titles as well. Overall, after the graphics card update, I'm very happy with how the monitor performs.

    Sound:

    - I like that the monitor has built in speakers. I wouldn't be thrilled to stream an action movie or have it be my primary audio source for listening to music, but it's adequate for gaming. I wasn't expecting the monitor to have built-in speakers at all, and if it hadn't, this would probably be a 5 star review. However, I'm of the opinion that if you're going to add a feature to a product, you should match the quality of the rest of your product, and Acer definitely skimped on the speakers. If you're like most gamers and already use a headset or have other dedicated speakers, you can ignore this part and consider this a 5 star review.

    Assembly:

    The only thing that would have made assembly easier would have been to have it be completely put together when it arrived. I can tell significant thought went into the design of both the base and the monitor arm. Attaching the base to the monitor arm involved a single screw that had a built in metal piece to turn so I didn't even have to find a screwdriver (or a coin as in other models). The arm slid into the back of the monitor easily and securely with a spring mechanism, and has a pinch to release lever if I ever needed to remove it.

    Display:

    The display came preset on "Eco" mode, but has options to change between Action Racing, Sports, custom User settings, Standard, Graphics, and HDR. Since I primarily play RTS and MOBAs. I left it on the Action setting initially and from there tweaked a few brightness settings to get the display exactly where I wanted it. With minimal customization, I found display settings I was happy with.

    Closing:

    All in all, this monitor was very easy to assemble and setup, looks great and performs well. If you can overlook the built-in speaker inadequacy and make sure to update your graphics card before launching the game, this is definitely a monitor I would buy again.

    Optimal for FPS But Also Great PIcture Quality

    I will be sharing my thoughts on the Acer XV271z monitor and comparing it to past experiences ive had with other gaming monitors.

    Before i start my review i will start by explaining a few things about gaming monitors if you are new to this, if you are experienced you can skip this part

    First if you are looking to upgrade from a regular monitor (60hz or TV) to a gaming one, What is your budget?? do you want FPS and responsiveness over picture quality??? can your rig use the full potential of your monitor?? what type of games do you play?? are you going to be using this monitor for other things besides gaming??

    If you are not sure i will get straight to the point. This monitor is mostly for games that require fast reaction time such as FPS shooters, Fighting Games, etc... It has great picture quality and colors, it is also bright, and has your basic ports DP, HDMI 2.0, and several gaming settings. BUT you will only game at 1080p and will probably not be as good for editing and content creation. So if you are trying to get those FPS and snappiness at Valorant, Apex, Guilty gear, etc... this is for you

    Anyways this is my TLDR

    Pros

    -27" IPS panel (great viewing angles)

    -2 DP ports, 1 HDMI, Audio Jack

    -HDR

    -A lot of gaming options in the settings

    -1ms or .5 if you do all the extra stuff

    -400 nits

    -240hz or 280hz with compatible DP

    -Built in power supply (no bulky external power bricks)

    -Vesa compatible

    -AMD Freesync

    Cons

    -Built in speakers are bad

    -pretty basic look nothing flashy

    -(personal opinion because i am used to 2k) 1080p resolution

    -No G sync

    Alright now i will be a little more specific

    Out of the box you get your basic cables, you get a DP cable, HDMI, and Power Cord. You also get your manual and warranty papers along with the stand and the monitor. The monitor is pretty easy to set up on the stand, you just tilt it and it snaps into place. The shell and design of the stand and monitor are pretty basic, they have a matte finish with a few red parts here and there. One can adjust the angle and the height of the monitor through the stand with easy, you can also twist it side to side but cannot be rotated vertically unless you mount it to a an arm. On the monitor you get 2 DP ports 1 HDMI 2.0 port and Audio Jack and your Power Cable Plug. Once everything is plugged in, you can just turn on your computer, change a few settings on your GPU control Panel, and then you can start gaming. If you decide you want to change some settings through the monitor settings you have 4 buttons and a little joystick to navigate on the bottom right of the back bezel. Honestly there is a lot of detailed settings, and i have not gone through since most of my past monitors dont have that many options. The only thing i did was lower the response time, turn on game settings and play with the HDR settings. HDR deffinetly makes an improvement if you are watching a videos or playing something like an RPG, But is not something that will mask the 1080p resolution.

    If you plan to make this you're do it all monitor for photoshoping, editing etc.. i would recommend calibrating the colors. I know a little bit of color calibration but most of the time i get my settings from reddit or other forums. Lastly the screen has really good viewing angles, no light bleed on the sides when looking at dark scenes and it has 400 nits of brightness which is pretty bright compared to like a VA panel.

    Here are my final thoughts.

    If you are upgrading from a 60hz 80hz or 100hz 1080p TN or VA monitor and can live without the RGB, I would recommend you this monitor if you are not trying to break the bank . I know you are trying to get all the frames when playing FPS meaning most of the time 1080p is optimal

    Great Monitor for Competitive Games

    This monitor is great for high framerate competitive games. The motion is very fluid and with the overdrive set to normal I see no ghosting even when running the UFO test. The HDR setting is very nice to have when you are playing games that offer support. This monitor can get very bright! I know that 400 nits doesn't sound like a lot compared to some TVs but since you are so much closer to a monitor it can be blinding on max brightness. The stand has plenty of adjustment; it offers tilt, rotation to a portrait orientation, a lot of vertical travel and the base can also rotate. I also appreciate that it just pops into place without the use of screws. The only real caveat has to do with it's size, at 27 inches I feel this is the absolute limit for a 1080p screen. It is great for gaming and I don't really notice the pixels while watching videos but while using it for productive purposes the lower DPI is quite obvious and can be distracting. It's not really a negative but just a trade off you need to be aware of when selecting a 1080p monitor of this size for gaming. I also tested this with an Xbox One X and everything, including the Freesync worked as advertised. If used in conjunction with a set of external speakers this could serve as a both a monitor and gaming TV replacement in places where space is limited.

    A Cool Looking Everyday Monitor

    IPS monitors provide excellent color reproduction as well as much better viewing angles and the HP M27f Full HD monitor is just that monitor for your everyday use.

    The M27f isn’t your traditional IPS monitor though; it’s very simple in design, yet more contemporary with its unique monitor stand and silver accents. The monitor’s bezels are fairly thin and the chin is of an acceptable size. It allows for two HDMI and one VGA inputs. Monitor controls are tucked underneath the chin with a single LED light to indicate power as well as a tiny symbol designating where the power button is located. Right in the center of the chin is the HP logo. Overall, the monitor just looks really, really cool.

    This monitor is probably the lightest, thinnest monitor I’ve ever owned. A monitor’s stand typically puts on the weight to allow for stability, but the combination of its thin screen and its uniquely designed stand is well balanced. It also probably has to do with the limited adjustability of the screen as you can only forward tilt it to and fro; you cannot raise or lower the monitor, and you cannot switch it to landscape. Other omissions are the ability to VESA mount this monitor as there are no mounting provisions for it. You’ll have to rock the stand it came with.

    Performance? It’s an IPS monitor with a generous 75Hz refresh rate with AMD FreeSync. Probably not a gamer’s monitor, but photo viewing, movie watching and the like are indeed enjoyable experiences with the M27f. Bringing up the OSD, there are many options to play with to get the monitor dialed in for your needs. I flipped between Neutral and Native for as they both provided a more natural color output that was easy on the eyes. Speaking of easy, HP Eye Ease is a feature that reduces blue light to help one get to bed easier. It's synonymous with cell phones that “warms” the screen to help aid in sleep. Viewing angles on the M27f are fantastic no matter which angle you’re coming from. Try this on a VA or TN panel and your screen begins to degrade or disappear.

    Other honorable mentions -- on the backside, there is a small groove in the stand for cable management...and that’s all I can say about the backside. HP decided to go with a power brick to keep the monitor light and super thin and that doesn’t bother me unless I manage to lose the power brick somehow.

    Cons?? Like I mentioned above, it has limited adjustability as well as mountability. Also, there are no speakers if you’re looking for sound output. There is a VGA port, which confuses me to this day. I thought we got rid of those a long time ago. It seems to be the still ongoing trend for many 1080p displays made today.

    Finally, there’s the price. IPS monitors generally are more expensive than their VA/TN counterparts at the equivalent resolution and refresh rate. But you do get the better color saturation and viewing angles. But when competing with the other 27” FHD IPS monitors in its class, the M27f is an aesthetics first, function second kind of monitor. No doubt, the monitor looks cool, but there are other monitors that can be adjusted in every which way as well as be VESA mounted if you choose to, all with the IPS benefits at around the same price range.

    So if you’re looking for a 27” FHD IPS monitor and you love the way the M27f looks, yet know its physical limitations, I’d say go for it. It’s just a sleek looking monitor all around, it visually performs well, and ultimately gets a recommendation from me.

    HP 27" IPS LED FHD FreeSync Monitor

    We wanted a monitor that would "play well" with our new HP Omen. I make about 4-5 videos a week and use the Adobe products to make opening and closing screens. I usually have to add words or put photos together to make the screens. This monitor is Huge! I love it. I can see the details on my artwork.

    Loved working with the Best Buy team!

    Great display, but not wall mountable

    ## Setup and Design

    It's important to note that this monitor is not meant for wall mounting and has no VESA-compatible mount points on the back. Therefore, plan on using this monitor with its included base.

    The monitor has a minimal design with very thin bezels along the top and sides (the bottom bezel is a little larger). The buttons for power and navigating the on-screen menus are located on the bottom of the monitor towards the right. The setup menus contain options for adjusting FreeSync, the response rate, and image sharpening, as well as the normal brightness, contrast, etc options you will find on most monitors.

    The monitor has 2 HDMI ports and 1 VGA port for older systems. This monitor is lacking a headphone jack, so you will not be able to output sound via the HDMI connection to the monitor.

    ## Performance

    The monitor has a 1920 x 1080 (1080p) resolution, so if you already have a 1080p monitor, you won't be able to "fit" more on the screen just because this monitor is larger. However, if you're squinting at your current 1080p monitor and you would like the onscreen elements to be larger, the 27" size of this monitor can definitely help.

    The 5ms response rate and FreeSync technology also make this monitor good for gaming. I tested out the monitor while playing a round of Fortnite and gameplay looked great on this screen.

    The LED backlight and IPS display provides a consistent viewing experience across the display, even if you're viewing the monitor from an angle or if you're looking up at the monitor while slouched in your chair. The monitor has a matte finish which helps reduce glare and reflections while still maintaining a surprisingly sharp image.

    This monitor includes an always-on blue light filter that reduces the amount of blue light you see, which can help reduce eye strain and help you relax more in the evening. However, even with this filter in place, I didn't find the image to be overly "warm" like a phone appears when its "Night Shift" mode is active. Colors still look great on this monitor, so you likely won't notice that the blue light filter is even there.

    ## Summary

    The HP M27f monitor works great for both gaming and working-from-home purposes. The matte display with blue light filter should help those that suffer with eye strain from long hours in front of a computer. However, you likely won't be able to mount this monitor on a wall mount or other adjustable desk mount as there are no VESA mount points on the back of this monitor.

    Great for Work, But Not the best for Gaming

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic my son has not been able to attend Kindergarten in person. Instead, his school provided him with a Chromebook and, for nearly an entire year, he has been participating in Remote Learning. We are lucky to be in a school district that was able to provide him with a computer, but the screen is so small that it is incredibly difficult to help him with his school work while standing over his shoulder. Plus, such a small screen does a poor job at displaying each of his classmate’s video feeds. When his very first eye test showed that he needed glasses, we decided he needed a larger monitor.

    This HP Monitor has been quite a refreshing upgrade. The 27 inch size is perfect. Not only does he have more real estate for his school work, but he can now actually see each of his classmates in greater detail. The monitor is incredibly lightweight, easy to set up, has clips on the back to organize the cables, and it easily tilts forwards/backwards - although unfortunately, there are no height adjustment options. I also appreciate that the front of the monitor has an small icon that shows where the power button is. (All of our other monitors seem to hide the menu buttons which can lead to frustration.)

    The screen appears to have almost no bezel at all - although when the monitor is turned on, there is about ¼” around the edge that does not display an image. Also curious is that the Blue Light Filter is always on. We do like that the filter should be better on our son’s eyes, but I would imagine that many users would like the ability to turn off the feature so that images can be more vivid for content such as games, or movies. Apparently almost all new monitors have a blue light filter option somewhere in their menus (usually “night” or “low light” settings). Even with the blue light filter always on, the screen's color appears accurate (although I have intentionally avoided comparing it to another monitor as blue light filters tend to make images appear slightly more yellow).

    Because the blue light filter cannot be turned off, because the resolution is only 1920 x 1080, and because the refresh rate maxes out at 70 fps - I would not suggest this monitor for PC gaming….even though it does include AMD FreeSync (which is a technology that reduces misalignment between the screen's refresh rate and the frame rate of the source content being received by the Monitor.) HP claims that the color produced is accurate, but with the blue light filter this simply cannot be the case. Also, gaming now is commonly 4K at 120 fps which is beyond this monitor’s capabilities.

    For anyone now working from home, this monitor is a fantastic option. It is large enough that it should be able to be used as a single large monitor. But, be aware that if it is used in a dual monitor set-up, the image may look different if paired with a different monitor model (as again, the blue light filter cannot be turned off).

    HP Eye Ease!!!

    Just like the title says this monitor is truly easy on the eyes even after staring it all day. Pretty much everyone uses a computer everyday for one thing or another and most people are on them all day which puts a strain on your eyes and especially with me, I used to get headaches from staring at the monitor all day long. I would use a filter to help with the eye strain and my headaches, but those screen filters are cumbersome to work and the screen just looks odd. This monitor makes everything an ease. So, lets go over some of the features and Pros and Cons of this HP IPS LED FHD FreeSync Monitor.

    Setup

    This monitor is pretty much ready to go right out of the box. The setup requires no tools and there is one screw on the base that you need to tighten in order to put the monitor together. The monitor has two HDMI ports and 1 VGA port.

    Features-

    HP Eye Ease - HP Eye Ease technology keeps your eyes comfortable with an always-on blue light filter.

    Accurate Colors – Even with the always on blue light filter there is barely any loss in colors.

    Full HD 1080p Display

    Wire management System

    Pros-

    Extremely light weight

    Easy on the eyes

    I recently pick up this 27" IPS LED FHD Monitor to make it easier on my eyes. First off this monitor has a very sleek form factor and doesn't take up too much room on the desk .

    It is essentially plug and play and allows you to connect to your computer and you're off and running. There are two HDMI connections and a standard VGA video input.. There is a cable management system in the back that hides the cables from sight. The screen size is not overwhelming and with the larger screen I can have two windows open at the same time and they display fine. Color and picture quality are excellent, displaying in full HD.

    This is a great monitor for anyone looking for a larger screen.

    Great purchase!

    My old mac desktop has finally slowed down to the point of insanity, so I decided to set up a port for my newer MacBook Pro laptop. This monitor has a very clear and well defined picture and was very easy to hook up.

    A Cool Looking Everyday Monitor

    IPS monitors provide excellent color reproduction as well as much better viewing angles and the HP M27f Full HD monitor is just that monitor for your everyday use.

    The M27f isn’t your traditional IPS monitor though; it’s very simple in design, yet more contemporary with its unique monitor stand and silver accents. The monitor’s bezels are fairly thin and the chin is of an acceptable size. It allows for two HDMI and one VGA inputs. Monitor controls are tucked underneath the chin with a single LED light to indicate power as well as a tiny symbol designating where the power button is located. Right in the center of the chin is the HP logo. Overall, the monitor just looks really, really cool.

    This monitor is probably the lightest, thinnest monitor I’ve ever owned. A monitor’s stand typically puts on the weight to allow for stability, but the combination of its thin screen and its uniquely designed stand is well balanced. It also probably has to do with the limited adjustability of the screen as you can only forward tilt it to and fro; you cannot raise or lower the monitor, and you cannot switch it to landscape. Other omissions are the ability to VESA mount this monitor as there are no mounting provisions for it. You’ll have to rock the stand it came with.

    Performance? It’s an IPS monitor with a generous 75Hz refresh rate with AMD FreeSync. Probably not a gamer’s monitor, but photo viewing, movie watching and the like are indeed enjoyable experiences with the M27f. Bringing up the OSD, there are many options to play with to get the monitor dialed in for your needs. I flipped between Neutral and Native for as they both provided a more natural color output that was easy on the eyes. Speaking of easy, HP Eye Ease is a feature that reduces blue light to help one get to bed easier. It's synonymous with cell phones that “warms” the screen to help aid in sleep. Viewing angles on the M27f are fantastic no matter which angle you’re coming from. Try this on a VA or TN panel and your screen begins to degrade or disappear.

    Other honorable mentions -- on the backside, there is a small groove in the stand for cable management...and that’s all I can say about the backside. HP decided to go with a power brick to keep the monitor light and super thin and that doesn’t bother me unless I manage to lose the power brick somehow.

    Cons?? Like I mentioned above, it has limited adjustability as well as mountability. Also, there are no speakers if you’re looking for sound output. There is a VGA port, which confuses me to this day. I thought we got rid of those a long time ago. It seems to be the still ongoing trend for many 1080p displays made today.

    Finally, there’s the price. IPS monitors generally are more expensive than their VA/TN counterparts at the equivalent resolution and refresh rate. But you do get the better color saturation and viewing angles. But when competing with the other 27” FHD IPS monitors in its class, the M27f is an aesthetics first, function second kind of monitor. No doubt, the monitor looks cool, but there are other monitors that can be adjusted in every which way as well as be VESA mounted if you choose to, all with the IPS benefits at around the same price range.

    So if you’re looking for a 27” FHD IPS monitor and you love the way the M27f looks, yet know its physical limitations, I’d say go for it. It’s just a sleek looking monitor all around, it visually performs well, and ultimately gets a recommendation from me.

    HP 27" IPS LED FHD FreeSync Monitor

    We wanted a monitor that would "play well" with our new HP Omen. I make about 4-5 videos a week and use the Adobe products to make opening and closing screens. I usually have to add words or put photos together to make the screens. This monitor is Huge! I love it. I can see the details on my artwork.

    Loved working with the Best Buy team!

    Great display, but not wall mountable

    ## Setup and Design

    It's important to note that this monitor is not meant for wall mounting and has no VESA-compatible mount points on the back. Therefore, plan on using this monitor with its included base.

    The monitor has a minimal design with very thin bezels along the top and sides (the bottom bezel is a little larger). The buttons for power and navigating the on-screen menus are located on the bottom of the monitor towards the right. The setup menus contain options for adjusting FreeSync, the response rate, and image sharpening, as well as the normal brightness, contrast, etc options you will find on most monitors.

    The monitor has 2 HDMI ports and 1 VGA port for older systems. This monitor is lacking a headphone jack, so you will not be able to output sound via the HDMI connection to the monitor.

    ## Performance

    The monitor has a 1920 x 1080 (1080p) resolution, so if you already have a 1080p monitor, you won't be able to "fit" more on the screen just because this monitor is larger. However, if you're squinting at your current 1080p monitor and you would like the onscreen elements to be larger, the 27" size of this monitor can definitely help.

    The 5ms response rate and FreeSync technology also make this monitor good for gaming. I tested out the monitor while playing a round of Fortnite and gameplay looked great on this screen.

    The LED backlight and IPS display provides a consistent viewing experience across the display, even if you're viewing the monitor from an angle or if you're looking up at the monitor while slouched in your chair. The monitor has a matte finish which helps reduce glare and reflections while still maintaining a surprisingly sharp image.

    This monitor includes an always-on blue light filter that reduces the amount of blue light you see, which can help reduce eye strain and help you relax more in the evening. However, even with this filter in place, I didn't find the image to be overly "warm" like a phone appears when its "Night Shift" mode is active. Colors still look great on this monitor, so you likely won't notice that the blue light filter is even there.

    ## Summary

    The HP M27f monitor works great for both gaming and working-from-home purposes. The matte display with blue light filter should help those that suffer with eye strain from long hours in front of a computer. However, you likely won't be able to mount this monitor on a wall mount or other adjustable desk mount as there are no VESA mount points on the back of this monitor.

    Great for Work, But Not the best for Gaming

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic my son has not been able to attend Kindergarten in person. Instead, his school provided him with a Chromebook and, for nearly an entire year, he has been participating in Remote Learning. We are lucky to be in a school district that was able to provide him with a computer, but the screen is so small that it is incredibly difficult to help him with his school work while standing over his shoulder. Plus, such a small screen does a poor job at displaying each of his classmate’s video feeds. When his very first eye test showed that he needed glasses, we decided he needed a larger monitor.

    This HP Monitor has been quite a refreshing upgrade. The 27 inch size is perfect. Not only does he have more real estate for his school work, but he can now actually see each of his classmates in greater detail. The monitor is incredibly lightweight, easy to set up, has clips on the back to organize the cables, and it easily tilts forwards/backwards - although unfortunately, there are no height adjustment options. I also appreciate that the front of the monitor has an small icon that shows where the power button is. (All of our other monitors seem to hide the menu buttons which can lead to frustration.)

    The screen appears to have almost no bezel at all - although when the monitor is turned on, there is about ¼” around the edge that does not display an image. Also curious is that the Blue Light Filter is always on. We do like that the filter should be better on our son’s eyes, but I would imagine that many users would like the ability to turn off the feature so that images can be more vivid for content such as games, or movies. Apparently almost all new monitors have a blue light filter option somewhere in their menus (usually “night” or “low light” settings). Even with the blue light filter always on, the screen's color appears accurate (although I have intentionally avoided comparing it to another monitor as blue light filters tend to make images appear slightly more yellow).

    Because the blue light filter cannot be turned off, because the resolution is only 1920 x 1080, and because the refresh rate maxes out at 70 fps - I would not suggest this monitor for PC gaming….even though it does include AMD FreeSync (which is a technology that reduces misalignment between the screen's refresh rate and the frame rate of the source content being received by the Monitor.) HP claims that the color produced is accurate, but with the blue light filter this simply cannot be the case. Also, gaming now is commonly 4K at 120 fps which is beyond this monitor’s capabilities.

    For anyone now working from home, this monitor is a fantastic option. It is large enough that it should be able to be used as a single large monitor. But, be aware that if it is used in a dual monitor set-up, the image may look different if paired with a different monitor model (as again, the blue light filter cannot be turned off).

    HP Eye Ease!!!

    Just like the title says this monitor is truly easy on the eyes even after staring it all day. Pretty much everyone uses a computer everyday for one thing or another and most people are on them all day which puts a strain on your eyes and especially with me, I used to get headaches from staring at the monitor all day long. I would use a filter to help with the eye strain and my headaches, but those screen filters are cumbersome to work and the screen just looks odd. This monitor makes everything an ease. So, lets go over some of the features and Pros and Cons of this HP IPS LED FHD FreeSync Monitor.

    Setup

    This monitor is pretty much ready to go right out of the box. The setup requires no tools and there is one screw on the base that you need to tighten in order to put the monitor together. The monitor has two HDMI ports and 1 VGA port.

    Features-

    HP Eye Ease - HP Eye Ease technology keeps your eyes comfortable with an always-on blue light filter.

    Accurate Colors – Even with the always on blue light filter there is barely any loss in colors.

    Full HD 1080p Display

    Wire management System

    Pros-

    Extremely light weight

    HDMI ports

    AMD Free sync

    Size

    Cons-

    Lack of DisplayPort input

    Overall, this is not a bad monitor at all. Its ease of use and Eye Ease technology makes this the perfect monitor for your everyday and office use.

    Nice portable touch-screen

    I own 2 portable monitors and while the Viewsonic TD1655 is slightly heavier than the other (and lacks a built-in battery) it's my go-to screen primarily because the touchscreen makes annotation during meetings extremely easy. Excellent color and brightness. Have not been too successful using USB-C video output so have been relying on mini-HDMI which works perfectly. Also a bonus that the screen has in-built (tiny) speakers.

    HP - 23.8 FHD Monitor

    The monitor has excellent color, easy hookup and color option to make it easier on eyes after long periods of reading text without affecting overall color when picture and such is displayed.

    Haven’t had it long enough to award 5 starts since that will depend on longevity, good so far after about 20 days. Also only comes with quick setup guide, no user manual to explain use of built in menu functions, for that you need to download a PDF file from HP’s web site.

    Work Hard, Play Hard

    ---- Summary ----

    Pros:

    - High resolution (1920 x 1080)

    - Bright and vivid colors

    - Quick refresh rate (75Hz)

    - Equipped with AMD FreeSync technology

    - Low response time (4 ms) reduces “ghosting”

    - IPS technology provides a wide viewing angle and color consistency

    - ComfortView reduces eye strain

    - Two HDMI ports

    - VESA mountable

    - Modern design

    - Thin bezel

    Cons:

    - Stand doesn’t allow height adjustment

    ---- Review ----

    Design:

    With a 27” screen size and thin bezel, this monitor provides a lot of screen real estate. I’ve found that this enables higher productivity when working and a more immersive gaming experience, compared to smaller monitors or solely using my laptop. It fits well on my desk and looks great, thanks to the modern design and textured pattern on the back. It’s VESA mountable but includes a stand that easily snaps into place without any tools required. Without the stand, the monitor is about 14” tall, and with the stand, it’s about 18” tall. Unfortunately, the stand doesn’t allow height adjustment, but it’s tiltable (-5 degrees/21 degrees). Along with the power cable, an HDMI cable is included in the box which is an addition I greatly appreciate. The connectivity options on the back of the monitor include a security lock slot, power connector, two HDMI ports, and an audio line-out port. Subtly located on the bottom right of the monitor are the power and on-screen menu buttons. I’m a fan of the design, which I’d describe as straightforward but also elegant.

    Features & Performance:

    This monitor not only delivers exceptional clarity with its full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, but also an extremely smooth experience with its 4ms response time, 75Hz refresh rate, and AMD FreeSync technology. In my opinion, these are the standout features and reason enough to get this monitor. I connect my gaming laptop to this monitor via HDMI and really enjoy the gaming experience. The display is super responsive, so there’s no “ghosting” effect. Additionally, colors are bright and vivid. AMD FreeSync effectively eliminates stuttering and tearing that can occur when the display’s refresh rate and the content’s frame rate differ but be aware that you must have a compatible graphics card on your PC/laptop. I’ve thoroughly tested games like Fortnite and Call of Duty: Warzone and they both look flawless on this monitor. Working from home or regular everyday use is just as great. Additional features that further enhance this monitor are IPS technology and ComfortView. In-plane switching (IPS) technology provides wide viewing angles and consistent colors while ComfortView reduces blue light emissions. If you’re unfamiliar, blue light emission can lead to eye fatigue and strain. Compared to monitors that don’t have a feature like ComfortView, I do notice a significant difference in how my eyes feel during longer working or gaming sessions. It’s a feature I didn’t know existed, but now I don’t want to go without it. This monitor has all the features I could wish for complemented by impressive performance.

    Verdict:

    There are numerous monitors on the market at a wide range of prices. The refresh rate, resolution, and other features of this monitor might not measure up to the high-end options, but at this price point, I think it’s a fantastic bang for your buck. Simply put, gaming and working on this monitor is a great experience. For me, this beautifully designed, high-performance monitor easily earns five stars.

    Very good monitor, with a caution for VESA mountin

    Good image quality; I bought this on sale and the image quality was typical for a unit at its regular price, so this was an excellent value. It has a 1080p max resolution which is good for what I am using it for; a display for a mini pc I use for music streaming. It is wall mounted, so the larger fonts are great.

    The only caution is that if you plan on using the VESA mount holes, is that unlike other monitors I have, the mount holes are recessed behind a removable panel. Some mounts may not work; mine was large enough to bridge the recess, but I had to do a hardware store run to get longer screws to make sure I had enough threads captured ( see pic). This was a replacement monitor, so I used the mount I had, They did not have a display sample, so I did not know about this until I opened the box.

    No VESA Mount

    Love this monitor. I thought about buying a second one. I was gonna buy a dual monitor mount for it until I looked behind and saw NO VESA mount. I can't believe that I didn't notice it before the purchase.

    I would look for other monitors with a VESA mount. I've looked around for adapters and they don't make one for this specific monitor.

    Now I'll have to buy two new monitors with the VESA mount.

    I haven't had any other issues with it. Colors look great.

    Decent Entry-Level(ish) Monitor

    1st, let me start by telling you how to set the monitor to the max refresh of 75hz as 99 times out of 100, Windows will NOT set it to what it can do.

    Right Click your desktop --> Display Settings --> Scroll down to Advanced Display Settings --> Display Adapter Properties for (Monitor name here) --> List All Modes --> 1920 x 1080 75 hertz.

    Dell advertises the display as a gaming monitor and does a fairly decent job at it. Initial impressions were mixed when I first set up and gave it a go. Assembly was straightforward and super easy. No tools required. Build quality is great and using the stand is really stable. There is no height adjustment so keep that in mind but there is a tilt option.

    Super thin bezels makes it a very attractive display when viewing all sorts of content. Nothing fancy or flashy at all about this monitor. 100mm x 100mm Vesa mounting. Comes with it own HDMI cable and power cord. Pretty basic, but that's all you need. Has 2 HDMI inputs as well and really nice if you want to use it as a display for streaming boxes or a game console.

    Out of the box and firing it up, Color Accuracy was surprising on point. Only a few minor tweaks needed to make me happy. There are many presets to choose from as well if you are not one to customize colors exactly to your liking.

    While gaming, depending of course on what hardware you are using, is where the monitor shines. I never dropped below the 75 FPS while playing any game on my steam library on ULTRA or Max settings. I did notice some very minor ghosting playing fast paced FPS's but nothing too bad to warrant a complaint. Other than that, everything was buttery smooth @ 75.

    Keep in mind that the real estate is wonderful. 27 inches is a good size for all types, but I think in my own opinion it is a little wasteful to have it handicapped @ 1080. But IF FHD gaming is your forte, then by all means, you are golden with this.

    Pros

    Color Accuracy

    Build Quality

    Great for a lot of gaming

    2x HDMI inputs

    Real estate

    Cons

    FHD for it's size (but you know this already)

    75hz @ 4ms is good for most but not for competitive gaming

    Price - (going by MSRP)

    So far it’s amazing!

    I was skeptical to buy this because I couldn’t confirm that it would run 120hz on the Xbox one x. Well I took a chance and I’m glad I did! This monitor runs 1080p @120hz on my one x perfectly! I couldn’t be happier.

    Really good monitor

    So, everyone is in quarantine right now, and I'm right there with you. This monitor is definitely going to help make the time go by quicker. It is a true pleasure to look at. The picture is clear, bright, and vibrant (my soon to be brother in law is legally blind without his contacts in, and his exact words were "even a blind person can see clearly with this monitor.") I've tried to get this monitor to have motion blur or stuttering and I have yet to see either. On the visuals, I can't recommend this highly enough.

    There is one glaring flaw with it though. The built-in speakers. They are awful. The sound is flat and tinny. It is good enough if you have no other option, but seriously, don't buy this thinking it will get you out of having to buy speakers. This is overall a great monitor and the built-in speakers could come in handy, but buy this for the merits of the display only.

    A great monitor loaded with features

    So, this is my first "gaming" monitor, and I'm pretty impressed. Previously, the only thing I'd bother looking for in a monitor is a high refresh rate. ASUS takes this a step (several steps?) farther, and threw in a slew of interesting features, like a built in multi-level bluelight filter, FPS display, on-screen reticle (which the monitor calls "practice mode") and various display settings optimized for the kind of game you're playing (MOBA mode washes out most colors except for things like health bars, to improve visiblity, for example).

    I wish I could take pictures of the bluelight filter in action, but my phone keeps auto-correcting the color on me. It's one of the most impressive features of the monitor, in my opinion.

    If you're looking for a fast, freesync monitor that's seriously designed with gamers in mind, this is an excellent choice.

    I keep getting ASUS displays and I keep loving 'em

    This monitor is really an amazing upgrade for my PC setup. Besides being able to do everything from gaming to accurately displaying photos and videos for editing, it’s just gorgeous to look at….with the screen on or off. Right out of the box this monitor has a sexy look to it. The bezels are small and sleek and the screen was the right amount of matte finish and the back has a slight curve to it. The box came with a monitor, stand, some paperwork, a decent sized Display port (I’d say 4 to 6 foot) power cable (I’ll add it to the 100s piled up, but still nice to have) and that’s it and that’s all you need.

    I am replacing a very old Asus monitor I was using as a secondary display that is on a dual monitor arm mount so I didn’t need to use the stand but I gave it a quick test and it is really nice. Not too different from other Asus stands I’ve had before and I mean that in a good way. It’s heavy enough you could bust a door down with it which also means it’s not going to break or at risk of tipping over your beautiful new display. I actually like the stand so much that I took my old monitor down and put it on the new stand to use in another part of my house! I couldn’t just put it in a closet, it seemed like a waste. So if you’re planning on mounting this monitor (standard vesa mount) remember the stand will also attach to most other vesa mount displays you may have that need a better stand. Just a thought.

    Moving on to the actual display of this monitor. There are plenty of reviews and specs already that can lay out the numbers and tell you ratings etc, I’m not going to waste my time or yours writing those out, but what I think is important in a review is how the product actually works in a real world scenario. Numbers are great, but do they result in good experience? Well, in this case, yes, yes they do.

    WOW. I fired this puppy up next to my larger, 4K Asus “main display” and was blown away how much better it looked, 1080 or not. The IPS screen is a game changer, I basically can’t go back now. The viewing angles are amazing, the contrast is clean and darks are dark and brights are bright. I do a lot of photo and video work and the ability to more accurately see how the images look is saving me time already and I’ve only been at it a week. I tossed on some full 1080p movies I had and they looked great. Smooth, clean, and rich. Then I played a few different games from older to newer and they all played wonderfully. (using an NVIDIA 1070. As others have mentioned, the G-Sync may say “not compatible” but it is, and it will reflect that soon with the next update I’m sure.) but it does work now and it works well. Games were so much smoother and vivid and I was playing better and getting better scores because of it! I wasn’t sure I’d want to play on a smaller screen at 1080 when I have a larger screen in full 4K right next to it but with the IPS, the refresh rate, and the vivid color reproduction, I knew this would be my new go to monitor for games.

    I'm extremely happy with this monitor and will be able to use it to game, edit, and watch videos in new and better ways than before. I've been trying to find something "negative" to say but I can't really find anything. There's a few personal preference issues I have, like button layout etc but they're not bad features, just things I personally don't prefer. But gosh, the way everything else works, I can't complain!

    Pros:

    - 144hz refresh rate

    - Small slim bezel, great for multiple display

    - Strong sturdy stand with portrait mode option

    - Very wide viewing angles

    - IPS panel...can't beat it.

    - G-sync and AMDs FreeSync compatible

    - Good calibration out of the box

    Cons:

    - Buttons are a bit confusing I guess? Not bad, just takes a learning curve to get used to

    - If I get really picky, the back inputs are a little tight and cables need to twist some to fit

    - Speakers are not great but who uses those anymore? And it’s still a pro that they have any at all. Good enough in a pinch

    No matter your needs, if you like good quality displays for mid range price, this is a great option for you. If you’re thinking about it, buy it...or 2. They're a great design for multiple displays!

    High School Teacher Taking it to the NEXT LEVEL

    The monitor works great. It easily adapted to my previous 3 monitor-setup.

    As a full-time high school teacher, college professor, software engineer part-time, and a Ph.D. candidate Student, I needed a 4th monitor to promptly answer questions posted through Zoom or Google Meets Video Conferences. It allows me to remain organized and on top of projects, lesson plans, and current in responding to my students at every level (during school and after school). This encourages my students to remain engaged.

    Having that 4th screen built to be positioned at a 90-degree angle, I can see my numerous lines of custom code while I am evaluating code from my other colleagues.

    Could just be my bad luck but...

    So I chose to buy 2 of these monitors during the BlackFriday sale they were $170 each which is a steal! So I bought one but the second one I bought had a small stuck pixel (I knew it was not dead because it was stuck on a bright purple) so I tried to bring it back with a couple of the tests but still didn’t work so I returned it and had a new one shipped to me and that one had a defect in it aswell and as crazy as it is to say there was fuzz between the panel that I could see and it was bigger than the dead pixel from the first one so I ended up taking it back AGAIN and received another one that ended up being fully working other than that issue I’ve LOVED these monitors for the deal I’ll also include a link here for a video all about programming the colors and getting it just right!

    Definitely recommend watching this video before or when you get this monitor

    Competitive Gaming Monitor

    I have been looking for a 144 Hz IPS monitor with adaptive sync to use for gaming and settled on the ASUS VG249Q. My first impression upon opening the box was the monitor was gorgeous and it was apparent that the design team at ASUS put a lot of thought into the aesthetics.

    Pros:

    * The stand is very sturdy and has no problem holding the monitor in the landscape or portrait position. This is a nice feature as many monitors cannot be easily rotated. It is ergonomic with the height, swivel, and tilt being adjustable.

    * IPS panel is beautiful. This monitor truly offers outstanding and accurate colors at all viewing angles. I compared this to my current monitor and the difference is definitely noticeable.

    * Adaptive-Sync technology. This was extremely important to me as I have a NVIDIA graphics card and want to be able to take full advantage of the 144 Hz monitor without screen tearing, stuttering, or input lag. This technology allows for comparable performance to G-Sync but without the huge price tag associated with it. Additionally if you have an AMD graphics card it has Free-Sync. After playing multiple games of Apex, COD, and The Division 2 I can say I am impressed with how it performed. The NVIDIA control panel does warn you that it isn't compatible which is likely because their list hasn't been updated yet. I did not have any issues force applying it. I achieved high frame rates and no noticeable lag, stuttering, or tearing. Once you experience a 144 Hz monitor you can never go back!

    * Extreme Low Motion Blur technology. I tried playing several games with and without this option enabled. It is a cool feature and definitely sharpens the image.

    *Game Plus: This is a cool feature that allows you to place a crosshair, a timer, an on screen FPS counter, and align your display. These functions are all accessible from the monitor. While these are not a must have for me, I think they are a nice addition.

    Indeterminate:

    * Shadow boost. While this option is supposed to brighten areas of the game without overexposing them, I found that it was hit or miss especially in The Division 2. Certain dark areas would brighten well while others remained dark.

    Overall, I am very happy with this monitor. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a 1080p gaming monitor. It has a lot of great features at a competitive price.

    Inexpensive and Very Accurate Color Reproduction

    Key Features

    165Hz Refresh Rate

    1920 x 1080 Full HD Resolution

    AMD FreeSync Compatible

    2 HDMI 2.0 Inputs

    1 Full-Size DisplayPort 1.2 Input

    1ms MPRT (Moving Picture Response Time)

    SET-UP

    The monitor comes well packaged and protected. Anyone with a Dell monitor will instantly recognize the steps necessary to get it attached to the stand and set-up for use. This is the same mounting solution Dell has used for years (even my 2012 model Dell UltraSharps use the same mounting system). If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Dell even made the assembly a tool-free, issue-free affair. Excellent!

    As notated above the monitor includes what I would consider the basic assortment of available connections. But, it should be just enough to satisfy a vast majority of consumers. There are 3 input connections, 2 HDMI 2.0 inputs, and 1 full-size DisplayPort 1.2 input. Note, there are no analog video inputs. Next to those inputs, is the monitor’s sole output, a 3.5mm headphone jack. There is not a lot of extras built-in, but at this price point, the selections are sufficient, and I think does the job at covering the bases for what the average consumer would need in a quality 1080p monitor.

    There are 4 buttons, and a joystick multi-selector on the back of the monitor to adjust the settings and parameters of the monitor. I found the buttons a little clunky and somewhat hard to decipher when initially setting it up. It became more familiar after a few adjustments, but still clunky to me. Thankfully, Dell has developed its excellent: Dell Display Manager Application. A small download allows the user to control and adjust the functions of the monitor with simple clicks of the mouse. The program enables a 2-way communication with the monitor, and it works great!!! You no longer must reach behind the monitor and guess at which button does what. It is a well-executed and implemented program. Dell should be commended on its functionality.

    USE

    I was all set to hate on this monitor after getting it connected and turned on for the first time. I am an IPS panel snob and when the screen turned on and I could see the hot spots from the edge lit LED’s I had made my mind up that this was going to be an average monitor at best. I was right. The monitor was OK, it had decent color and imaging. I used it for a few hours and it served its purpose well enough. Text was clear. I was able to write up a couple of long overdue Word documents. Web browsing was equally fair. The monitor had a decent picture and didn’t do anything necessarily wrong, but I wasn’t wow’d in any way. So, I decided to hook up my colorimeter and do a calibration now that the new monitor had several hours of break in.

    My initial indifference was immediately removed after calibration. The monitor looked vibrant, and colors were much more accurate. The shortcomings and my lack of enthusiasm were gone. The monitor really did have a great image in it after all. I posted pictures of the results of the calibration. This monitor returned a near perfect image and an almost equally perfect D65 color. WOW!!!! This is something that my expensive UltraSharps aren’t able to achieve, nor can my HP Omen gaming monitor. This is one of the most accurate monitors I’ve used to date.

    NEGATIVES

    There are only two potential negatives that I can think of:

    1. The monitor is only compatible with AMD FreeSync. So, owners of gaming rigs containing nVidia graphics cards will not be able to take advantage of the screen matching refresh rate that nVidia uses (GSync).

    2. I’m not sure that a 24” monitor is really wide enough to need to be curved. I will admit that it could just be that I am not totally comfortable with the curved monitor yet, but I just don’t know if there is any really real benefit of the curve at this screen size. Both my Dell UltraSharps are 24” and neither one is curved and I don’t see a need.

    CONCLUSIONS

    I am incredibly pleased with the performance of this monitor. It has an accurate color reproduction, that covers 99% of the available sRGB color spectrum and a near instantaneous response time, rivaling even the best IPS panels. Text in spreadsheets and documents are clear and images are authentic and natural looking. Games played smoothly with no perceivable lag or stuttering. Even fast paced games like Call of Duty and Forza played cleanly and smoothly with no perceivable lag or tearing.

    While I was fully prepared to give this monitor a mediocre rating after first turning it on, it has completely won me over. I give this a full 5 star rating for its crisp, clear text and extremely accurate color reproduction that rivals or exceeds much more expensive IPS monitors.

    Full Featured Gaming Monitor

    Getting a monitor that gives you a great FHD panel with a high refresh rate for a reasonable amount of money has just gotten easier. This Dell monitor once I got it fully set up really amazed me. The overall display quality, build, stand flexibility and ease of set up makes this monitor a real winner. Naturally one of Dell’s larger curved monitors will give you a more immersive feel but if you don’t have the space or the money this is a great alternative.

    Features: The display is VA panel which supports FHD 1920 x 1080 with a refresh rate up to 165hz. It has up to a 178 degree viewing angle and a 3000:1 contrast ratio for deep blacks. The response times are 1ms in MPRT mode, 4ms Gray to Gray (GtG) in Super Fast mode and 8ms GtG in Fast mode. There are two HDMI ports, a Display Port and a Headphone/audio out jack. The monitor has the typical Dell stand which gives you total control over the display height and angle. I think this is more important with a curved screen than a flat screen. To get the full immersive feel you need to have the monitor at eye level so that your eyes are aligned with the middle of the screen. Since this is a 24” monitor I set mine up so that I was sitting about 1.2 ft away for playing games, that is the minimum recommended distance for a 16 x 9, 24” FHD display. When doing anything else I would move back to about 24 inches from the screen. If you sit close your games are going to become far more intensive. The display has a very thin side bezel so all the control buttons are on the right rear of the panel. There is one main joy stick menu button and four function buttons. These are the buttons you need to access the set-up menu but more importantly you use them for selecting input source, short cuts and game presets. So when choosing where to put the monitor its important to make sure you can get your hand around the right side of the display. The other option is load Dell’s Display Manager (DDM) app for windows and control everything via the app.

    Setup: After I put the monitor together on its stand and cabled it I went through the basic set up items. My gaming laptop can do up to 144 hz at FHD so I configured Windows for 1080 at 144hz and set the monitor’s response time settings to MPRT – note that MPRT only works with 144hz and 165hz refresh rates. Next I checked out the monitors performance using the Eizo monitor test and TestUFO. The panel was perfect with no pixel issues and the colors and gray scales were uniform across the panel. Playing with the TestUFO I was able to see how much the 144 hz refresh improved over a standard 60hz rate. I repeated this same process with my desktop which support FHD 1080 at the 165hz refresh rate. Again the monitor looked and performed great. There are five preset game settings and 3 customizable presets as well. The preconfigured presets are Standard, FSP First-Person Shooter, MOBA Multiplayer Online Battle Arena, RPG Role-Playing Games and Sports. These are definitely something you are going to want to play around with and if you don’t like them you can create up to three more presets to meet your taste.

    Bottom Line: What I really like about this monitor is that the colors are vivid and blacks are reasonably black. Some of my games seemed to run better under MPRT and others seemed to look better using the Super Fast response time. I’m not sure how much of this was personal preference vs measurable performance but I played with the settings until I found what I liked. I would recommend making sure your game’s refresh rate is set correctly because I found several of mine defaulted to 60 fps and I had to manually change it. I also found that because it’s a curved monitor the in-game camera angles can change the immersive feel. Viewing the game from inside the car was much more immersive than having the camera show a bird’s eye view from behind. You need to try the various options because what worked on a flat screen may not give you the maximum benefit of this curved monitor. Lastly because this is a VA monitor its good for general use as well. Getting used to the curved screen while doing spreadsheets and documents does take a little getting used to but once you do it becomes a non-issue.

    Great Monitor / Great Display

    I was in the market for a curve display with great refresh rate and quality picture. I really enjoy this monitor and the ease of navigation through the menus using the knob on the back of the panel. Over all the ports are easy to access and connect to peripherals and the menu navigation is a breeze. There are multiple customized settings you can go through to set the picture to the way you prefer.

    Overall I recommend this monitor for anyone who is looking for a curve display.

    Functionality + Design + Resolution = Incredible

    During the pandemic, I was fortunate to be able to work remotely from home with a new laptop and two monitors. Now that we are back to working in the brick-and-mortar office building, I no longer have an extra monitor at home for my personal laptop and I really miss it. I decided to buy an HP monitor because I have had good luck with the brand. I have an HP laptop and color printer I absolutely love that they communicate so well with one another. An advantage of the HP M22f monitor is that it is compatible with most other laptops.

    The first monitor I ordered arrived banged up so badly during transit that the monitor was damaged, resulting in spiderweb cracks making it unusable. HP very quickly shipped me a replacement.

    SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES:

    • Resolution is 1920 x 1080 FHD

    • At under 5 lbs, it is lightweight making it easy to move

    • LCD display panel with active matrix and in-plane switching (IPS)

    • AMD FreeSync is a type of adaptive synchronization technology for LCD displays. It helps displays eliminate screen tearing and stuttering by synchronizing the monitor’s refresh rate (48-75 Hz) with the framerate of your AMD graphics card. As a result, you experience the optimal framerate the graphics card can achieve.

    • FHD – full high-definition.

    POSITIVES:

    • The monitor was so easy to set up and I was using it immediately.

    • It has a slim, stylishly sleek profile with a thin bezel maximizing the display.

    • With the 21.5” screen, it fits on desk without taking up too much space.

    • The foot/base is sturdy and an open design making it a great spot to store items on the desk (pens, post-its, etc.) for easy accessibility.

    • The auto image adjustments are intuitive providing great picture quality and color accuracy.

    • The cable containment feature hides the cord in the mount to keep it from getting entangled with other cables and cords.

    • Tilt adjustment (head forward or backward) sets it to a comfortable eye level.

    • The control buttons are located under the monitor and easily accessible. The OSD menu lets you customize the viewing features of the monitor with these settings: brightness, color, image, input, power, menu, management, information, exit. There is a power light to let you know if the unit is on, off, or in sleep state. While the function buttons are pre-assigned, you can reassign them to quickly access your most commonly used menu items.

    • Eyesafe means low blue light without affecting color quality. The anti-glare panel has an LED backlight. This is perfect for people like me who spend long hours in front of a computer!

    • Sustainability: monitor is crafted with 85% recycled materials. Energy saver feature for reduced power consumption.

    THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU BUY:

    • While you can’t adjust the height, the 178-degrees ultra-wide viewing angles makes it adaptable for a sitting or standing position or moving from side to side.

    • While it connects to your laptop via VGA or HDMI port, only an HDMI cable is included.

    • It is not VESA mount compatible.

    I found it very helpful to access the user guide at http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c07008860.pdf.

    I love this monitor so much that my husband is purchasing me a second one for my upcoming birthday. Once you get used to 3 monitors, there is no going back to fewer.

    Excellent Monitor / Couple of Improvements

    This monitor has a fantastic display. While 22 inches is slightly smaller size than the market standard of 24 inches, the smaller display at the same 1080p resolution actually produces a better picture.

    PROS

    - Bright and clear display. I did not make any changes to the monitor's settings, and was very happy with the picture. The colors are a bit more saturated, but this monitor has a glare-free display (meaning it's not reflective), so this is actually impressive.

    - Excellent viewing angles. I could almost look at the monitor from the side and there was absolutely no distortion of the color.

    - Wide tilt. This monitor would work well in an environment where it is placed higher or lower than the average height of the viewer in that environment. For most users sitting in front of it, it can easily be adjusted to that user's height.

    - Incredibly thin bezel. The matte screen goes to the very edge of the monitor, meaning there is no space where the screen and bezel meet for dust to collect as the monitor ages. At the same time, the very slight bezel behind that screen is almost hard to notice.

    - Blue light reduction is almost unnoticeable when it comes to the colors on the screen. I did not feel as though I had the orange "hue" that a lot of blue-light-reduction seems to cause.

    - Surprisingly intuitive buttons for adjustments and input. There are actually no labels for the buttons other than the power button (and the on/standby light is very small), but simply pressing any of the buttons brings up a menu on the screen, with options lining up directly above the button location, making them very easy to use just by touch.

    CONS

    - No height adjustments. While the screen tilt is generous, there is no height adjustment to this monitor.

    - Not VESA mountable. You will have to use the stand with this monitor. However, I appreciate the open design of the stand base, as it makes a handy area to place small objects such as pens, flash drives, SD cards, paper clips, and other items that tend to slide and roll around on the desk.

    For me personally, this monitor lacks a couple of features that could greatly improve it for a power user like myself.

    CONSIDERATIONS FOR POWER USERS

    - Use one of the buttons for channel changing instead of color or brightness. I frequently have multiple devices plugged into my monitors, and I prefer to have a button that quickly changes the input ("channel") rather than having to go through a serious of menus just to change that input.

    - More HDMI ports. Again, as a power user, I would appreciate more inputs than just 1 HDMI and 1 VGA. I will often have a second computer, a streaming device, or a game system plugged into the monitor, depending on the location I am using the monitor. My primary desk has 3 different computers set up on it, so I would have to create a complicated setup in order to have multiple devices set up on this monitor.

    - No speakers. While speakers built in to monitors are generally terrible, they are handy to have when you need them.

    I have to give a couple of kudos to HP for the packaging and assembly of this monitor. In most cases, the monitor is centered in the box and the cables and accessories are dropped in on the front and back. Opening the box, I found all of the accessories organized in a "tray" (see my photo), and removing the tray revealed the monitor itself. Very easy to unpack. The stand was also so easy to attach, and FINALLY, no tools required!!!

    For the price point, this is a fantastic monitor and I would recommend it to almost anyone needing one for everyday use.

    HP monitor for daily everyday use

    This HP monitor is perfect for my needs with it's lightweight feel, thin profile design, and clarity. I have really been able to utilize this for work at home scenarios to be more productive. Having the large real estate of a 21.5" IPS monitor with 1080p has been a nice upgrade for me so I don't have to rely on my laptop's 13" screen. This HP monitor also has a small footprint so it doesn't take up too much space on my desk or table. The only thing it lacks is a vertical adjustable option, but I can easily buy a small monitor stand for that.

    It's a simple plug and play type monitor that allows for an extra screen with both the HDMI and VGA ports offered. It has a Full HD display so you'll get a nice crisp clear screen. HP offers Eye Ease technology on this and it helps more than I thought it would. Keeping my eyes fairly strain free for the hours I'm working on my productivity. Easily viewable screen from multiangle, as HP states it's at 178 degree viewing angle. As for the AMD FreeSync technology I've been pleased with the monitor's performance of keeping up with streaming video content and not stuttering. The color accuracy seems to be on point and I think it's a great fit for most consumers. This is a pretty good monitor for your everyday basic needs without breaking the budget. Have been using it for a couple weeks and have no complaints as it's worked flawlessly.

    PRO:

    Quick setup - unbox and hook up

    Large screen, small footprint

    Lightweight

    Great Monitor for Replacing Your Laptop Screen

    Like many others, I am mainly doing telework at home. I have a 15" display on my work laptop. If I open more than one doc or app on the same screen, (which I have to do all the time) I end up squinting through my reading glasses, trying to make out what's on the page & my eyes get so fatigued by the middle of the day.

    That's why I welcomed the HP M22f FHD 1920 x 1080 Monitor with HP Eye Ease! Now, I can easily see all my opened docs & apps without the squinting & eye strain. And I enjoy using this bright, clear display with excellent color accuracy and wide viewing angles.

    The monitor itself is a pleasure to view, with it's 3-sided bezel-less ,ultra-thin modern design.

    I like that it weighs less than 5 lbs,, so it is easy to move around.

    This is a great monitor to replace your small laptop display. I am so enjoying it!

    Great gaming monitor with minor flaws.

    I am happy with the monitor for my needs. I purchase one of these monitors a couple of years ago and have been completely happy and satisfied with it. I recently purchased two more of these monitors off of Best Buy Online. The purchasing, shipping and receipt of shipment was all fantastic. Upon turning on the two new monitors I found one of them to had a stuck pixel, no problem Best Buy was great with the return. I then re ordered another of the same monitors and this time it was perfect. I am in no way disappointed with Best Buy or MSI, these things happen and it was handled as it should of been. I would however like to point out that if you plan to do a 3 monitor set up it would be advantageous for you to purchase all three at the same time. I have noticed that the two new monitors are the same in color, contrast, brightness and clarity however my oldest of the three is a bit different. I do not think this is a product defect but most likely due to the age and 24/7 on cycle leaving it with a slightly dimmer hue or appearance, but I don't know I am certainly no expert, but again I am completely satisfied for my needs. My needs are mostly web searches, streaming shows, games and flight sim. The only cons I have for the monitor is the stand can be a bit wobbly if not on a solid surface or solid wood desk and the monitor tends to make snap crackle pop noises when expanding and contracting from heat, this goes away once it's warmed up.

    Exactly what i need

    Great monitor for gaming, the display port slot is a great thing to have for the graphics. The 2560x1440 resolution really pops.

    While i would recommend it, I would hold out for a sale. $329 is a bit of a stretch for me, but that's my personal opinion. If you've got a decent graphics card to utilize the full resolution (2560x1440), its worth every penny. The curved screen is an added bonus.

    love this screen

    using as a second moniter to extend the ultrawide I have, honestly between the two screens I have never been so happy with a setup in my life. This alone is a great screen, very crisp and fresh looking, thin bezzels. For the price you can not beat it.

    Honestly its not going to be the best monitor you’ll buy but I’ll do the work for the price. The only thing missing that will make it great its HDR.

    Good deal for a 1440p monitor

    I previously owned an MSI C27C4 monitor that I loved, but my cat ended up knocking it over and shattering the screen. So, I went to look for a replacement MSI monitor with something higher than a 1080p resolution, and happened to stumble upon this one. I'm extremely happy with my purchase so far, since this monitor is way more versatile and higher quality than my previous one.

    Pros:

    1. The monitor comes with a very sturdy and versatile stand, allowing for both height and tilt adjustment. This is a major plus since my previous monitor stand didn't move at all, despite taking up more desk space.

    2. The price is great for a 1440p 144hz curved gaming monitor. You're getting a pretty high quality piece of hardware while paying a lot less than most other name brands. Not to mention the color and images are gorgeous compared to some other VA panel monitors (the subtle glow in the back is a nice touch as well).

    Cons:

    1. There wasn't really any instructions on how to attach the cord organizer to the stand, and I almost ended up snapping it in the process until I realized I was doing it wrong. Not enough to knock off a star, just enough to slightly annoy me (otherwise it was very easy to put together).

    2. For some reason, and I can't quite explain why, but my previous MSI monitor that was only 1080p seemed to have just a tad bit more depth to the colors despite both being VA panels. This isn't so much of a con as it is a personal observation. Most people won't be swapping out one almost identical monitor for another like I did. Plus I'm sure I'll forget about it in a day or two (this image still looks gorgeous regardless).

    If you're looking for a good gaming monitor that gives you the best bang for your buck in the 1440p 144hz world, then this is the monitor for you.

    Budget monitor worth a look

    .

    Sorry, couldn't resist the title pun, but seeing is believing and the Dell 24" S2421NX has numerous features that makes it easy on the eyes,a pleasure to use, and all without breaking the bank (which is the point.)

    Summary:

    Short on extras (like multiple inputs), but big on visual appeal (16.7 million colors), this monitor is a great second monitor for working at home or a first monitor for casual folks on a budget.

    More:

    My wife is the practical one and wanted a second monitor but didn’t to spend a lot. This fits the bill. With AMD FreeSync Technology, a refresh rate of 75 Hz, and a decent 4ms response time you might think this is tailor made for the casual (emphasis casual) gamer but with the vibrant colors typical of IPS monitors it is great for watching YouTube and Netflix as well. And sure all that means it handles the office well with no eyestrain after a long day. The monitor behave like much more expensive brethren.

    So why the relatively low price? Well, 1080 p for one thing, it's not 4k (which is at least twice the price). But text still looked crisp to me. Sure, if I squinted and looked close, I could tell it wasn't ultra-hi resolution. But, This does limit how much text you can comfortably read in a window, and balances well with the 24" diagonal size. Also on the cost saving side, it has all the inputs you could want, if all you want is HDMI 1.4. It has two of those, nothing else. Ergonomics wise, it has a solid stand and monitor, thin bezels, but it simply tilts forward or back, not side to side and not at a 90 degree angle (portrait versus landscape, but it can be VESA mounted in portrait mode). It has some thoughtful features like a cable management slot, security-lock slot and option for the VESA mount. Two speakers, and audio line out port though I was bummed that it did not support my headphones.

    Bottom line, solid monitor for the price. I tested in on a PC (Lenovo thinkpad), Apple MacBook Pro, and iPad. Worked fine with all, no connection issues,, but to be fair, not sure if there was a use case for the iPad. Thats more a ding on the iPad which only does mirroring, but it was the only time I was aware of the resolution compromises. The retinue screen on the iPad is amazing. But my wife uses it every day all day on her thinkpad, work and you tube, and loves it.

    Perfect for home office

    First of all, a shout out to the packaging engineers and packaging designers. Unboxing this item is a pleasure - the clear tape that allows removal of the entire contents in one go is appreciated, and all the packing materials remain in original condition should the need for repackaging arise. Included are the monitor itself, power cable and adapter, an HDMI cable and the base. I'm a mechanical design engineer by profession and spend 100% of my work time on computer. While I've got 2 monitors at work to project my laptop to but at home, I had only 1 which is a great monitor from another reputed brand. I've been working from home since March and this monitor was serving well. I didn't think I needed a second monitor until I stumbled upon this one from Dell. I immediately grabbed this to give it a try. It had lived up to my expectations so far. It's as good as my first monitor which has been exceptional so far. As far as the image quality and other features are concerned, this Dell monitor has matched my other monitor. The power is provided by an AC cord, without the bulky and awkward power transformer box that my first monitor came with. The size and resolution were a good match for my work laptop. The thin margin on 3 sides makes working across multiple monitors much easier.

    I selected this monitor because it has both HDMI and DisplayPort inputs, (it also has VGA, but I'll never use it) has a stand that will rotate to 90 degrees, allows for VESA mounting without blocking inputs, is 24" diagonally with 1980 x 1080 resolution, and small bezels. Time spent from opening the box to having the monitor up and running was under 5 minutes. Well designed packaging and easy to put together - no screwdriver required. The screen bezels are tiny which looks good and helps manage size. Dell did an awesome job of including VESA mounting holes (& hardware) in this one because I know some of their monitors lack this and so does my first monitor. As soon as I received this monitor, I also ordered a dual monitor mount to clear up some clutter from my desk and give it a cleaner look. But because my first monitor doesn't have the VESA mounting capability, I had to order a VESA mount adapter for that but with my Dell monitor, it wasn't an issue and it fitted perfectly on the stand. I didn't have to struggle a bit for my Dell monitor and on the other had, my other monitor did give me some trouble for adjusting the VESA mount adapter.

    Normally I don't care much about the menus built into the monitor, but these deserve special recognition. The user interface ("OSD" = On Screen Display) is very well organized, full featured, and easy to use. It is translucent. It does lack in-built speakers and webcam. I've never seen a monitor with built-in speakers that sounded good anyways. While it does not matter to me because I only use it for work, it may be a deciding factor for few people.

    PROS:

    - It has a phenomenal picture quality.

    - It looks super sleek and classy as it has no border but for the bottom.

    - Base is solid with zero wobble (note that the base is a little big).

    - Controls are on the bottom of the monitor, not the back or side - they are hidden but accessible and menus are intuitive.

    - Love the tilt and the up/down adjustability.

    - Whatever all the stats are that denote how smooth the action is and how little choppiness there is - this is wonderful. I do not experience any discernible lag with mouse movement or typing.

    - Comes with an HDMI cord.

    CONS:

    - Lacks built-in speakers (not a big deal for me, might be for others)

    - Bottom bezel is a tad bit bigger than other three edge bezels (again not a big issue for me as my first monitor is same). This actually make my both monitor complement each other.

    Overall I am very pleased with this monitor, it is a GREAT VALUE!

    Good basic monitor

    Reputable brand Dell has a great monitor for anyone looking to have a comfortable viewing experience. I think 24 inches is the sweet spot for most people looking for a well priced monitor. At full HD 1920x1080 resolution, it is great for all videos and gaming. The IPS panel also helps for those looking for accurate color representation in media. Having 2 hdmi ports helps to move from different inputs. Great for anyone working from home.

    Great Monitor

    I love this Dell Monitor. It’s an upgrade for me from a 20” screen. My old monitor was so old…

    {How old was it?}

    …it was so old that it still used a serial port. I had to use a serial to HDMI converter to use it with my current tower.

    This Dell Monitor was simple to set up and install. I used an HDMI cable (included) to connect to my computer, plugged the monitor into the power, and turned it on.

    The screen itself is a matte finish. I would not say it is fingerprint proof, as I somehow got something on the screen while attaching the stand that caused streaks. They did not just wipe off as I expected, but they did come off. The resolution is easy on my eyes and my work is easier to see.

    The unit is large without being too overwhelming for my small desk. If space is a limitation, though, you may want to consider getting a monitor arm.

    I would recommend to anyone considering getting a new monitor.

    Solid Monitor!

    Great monitor. Picture quality is great! The thin bezel really looks like I’m just seeing a screen sitting on my desktop and not a huge monitor bezel encasing a screen on my desk top. Easy on the eyes and pictures and text are super clear and easy to read.

    I also really like the dual HDMI ports. I got a USB C HDMI adapter and can run it on anything now. Hooked it up to my IMAC and Surface laptop easily. The surface defaults at 3000x2000 so the Dell monitor either had a little black on the sides or you can adjust resolution on your laptop to get it to the full screen. Either way it looked good. The mac had no troubles either.

    Solid monitor for its price point! minus 1 star for not being able to turn it vertical. With todays electronic doc and multiple screen work spaces, a monitor really need to flip vertically in my opinion. If you only plan to use it horizontally 5 stars. For me, it was an oversight on Dell’s part.

    Exceptional “Jack of All Trades” 1080p Monitor

    =============================

    >>>>> Bottom Line Up front: <<<<<

    =============================

    The 24” HP M24f does so many things right – especially at this price point – that I feel that it becomes really hard to find any deal breaking faults; without feeling like I am going into “knit-picking” mode. If you’re looking for something on the affordable side of the 24” monitor segment, particularly for a home office or workstation application - the M24f’s IPS panel is going to be tough to beat. It looks absolutely great on almost any desk, excellent viewing angles, a respectable 99% sRGB color gamut reproduction, and thoughtful productivity enhancing touches like HP’s Eye Ease (the always on blue light filtering tech) to help protect your eyes while you’re plugging away on your work for hours on end. The M24f supports AMD FreeSync variable refresh rate and is a more than capable of pulling double duty for casual HD gaming at “lower” refresh rates (compared to the “higher 144Hz + up models). HP makes other gaming monitors that would undoubtedly be better suited if that what you’re looking.

    ========================================

    >>>>> Picture Quality/Image Reproduction: <<<<<

    ========================================

    I work with a lot, and I do mean a lot, of computer monitors, TV monitors, projectors, and everything in between for what seems like decades now. Needless to say, many of those monitors have been HP monitors throughout that time. I have come to respect HP for always providing a quality product for almost every segment and the M24f is no exception. It sports an exceptionally crisp 1920 x 1080 native display resolution that HP states offers “ultra-wide 178-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles”. I’d be hard pressed to argue with their claims, because even compared to other IPS panels in this size range, something about the M24f just “popped” in images and video when I started messing around with the viewing angles in study. The M24f also has a more than respectable color reproduction with 99% sRGB color space. Like literally every monitor – ever – you will most likely have to “tune” or calibrate the monitor to enhance the color palate for a particular type of workload or productivity task in order to get the most visual effect out of the images/videos you are working with.

    =========================

    >>>>> Physical Design: <<<<<

    =========================

    I really liked the elegant and simplistic design aesthetic that HP used for the M24f. In summary - it looks more expensive than it is. Particularly when viewed from the side or at corner angles that allow the particularly slim upper and side bezels showcase the IPS panel even more. Add in the M24f’s simple, yet cleverly implemented cable management system that runs down the back of the silver base, it is ideal for workstation use or front office style desks where a smaller 24” form factor or visual exterior design appeal matters more than sheer physical screen size. I am not particularly crazy about the hidden OSD control buttons along the lower right side – but they work well enough and fit in with the whole “minimalistic” design theme that is going on here. I was disappointed to learn that the M24f does NOT support VESA mounting, which is a bummer for me (and anyone else) that has a multiple monitor arm set up at home or in the workspace. While the M24f’s screen may sport exceptional viewing angles – sadly the monitor arm and base do not. You can “tilt” and adjust the horizontal viewing angle, the stand/base does not offer vertical height adjustment not does the screen tilt left – to -right either. That being said, even with the limited base adjustment, the IPS screen viewing angles make the whole package more than manageable for everyday use. Also, I can’t neglect to mention how light the whole unit feels, almost too light – which is a compliment. Unfortunately, I was also disappointed to learn that there are no “built-in” speakers for “basic” sound reproduction, which isn’t really a negative thing, but more of something to be aware of in case you needed that functionality out the box. I wasn’t expecting the M24f to have a built-in web camera either at this price point – so I was not surprised to learn it didn’t actually have one after setting it up.

    ==========================

    >>>>> Closing thoughts: <<<<<

    ==========================

    I opted to use the M24f as my “main” monitor to get a feel if it could handle all my day to work loads, and for the most part it exceeded my expectations, however there were some things that warrant considerations/thoughts before you pull the trigger.

    - Make sure 24” is the appropriate size for your workloads and personal needs. All the best image quality and viewing angles in world won’t make your desktop bigger. So, make sure this size works for you.

    - it is not a substitute for a high end/high resolution/high frame rate gaming monitor. This monitor is limited to a maximum refresh rate of 70Hz, a resolution of 1920 x 1080, and a 5-millisecond response time and lack of HDR support – HP makes other gaming monitors that would undoubtedly be better suited if that what you’re looking for – but casual gaming was no problem for the M24f.

    - while the build quality is solid, I still can’t help but feel HP did a little too much cost cutting when I think about the lack of VESA mounting integration, lack of built-in speakers, and “basic” adjustability of the base. This also comes across in the limited amount of input option as you only have 1x HDMI or 1x VGA connector. (I happen to primarily use Display Port).

    In the end I was still impressed with everything HP brought to the table with the M24f – particularly at the sub $200 MSRP. I think this is perfect for smaller workstations, desk, or a highly visible study (as in my usage case) where the design aesthetics and extremely crisp and vibrant IPS can be seen in all its glory.

    An excellent monitor for the price

    A growing number of people today are doing much if not all of their computing on phone and tablet screens. More on laptops that usually top out at 15 inches (or less). While fine for basic tasks, sometimes you need more screen space, especially when photo and video editing, or doing a video chat call with a class or office. The HP M24f monitor hits that sweet spot at 24 inches (23.8 diagonally, actually), where it gives you a lot more space to work on, but isn’t so large it overwhelms your eyes or can’t fit in a smaller workspace area.

    The M24f has a 1080p / 70Hz resolution which is just fine for something this size, is very bright, and has a 99% rated sRGB color range for accurate colors, and they look really nice on this screen. Mine had zero dead pixels (yay!). The stand comes in two pieces which basically just snap onto the monitor and a screw on the bottom secures it; note though, the stand does not adjust in terms of height, but does tilt forward and back easily for the best angle. The monitor has a nice wide viewing range of 178 degrees, meaning you don’t have to be right in front of it to see the clarity and brightness – you can be a bit off to the side, or others around you can see it just as well as you do, which not every monitor can claim – and it’s accurate in this case as even off to the side I could see everything just as clearly as in front. Since the bezels on three sides are incredibly thin, this makes for a nice viewing experience. There’s a built-in blue light filter that helps to reduce eye strain as well, that stays on automatically all of the time, which comes in handy when you are having to stare at the screen for longer periods of time. I tend to get a headache after a couple of hours of monitor time and this must work because so far I haven’t had this issue with the M24f. A snap-off piece on the back of the stand has a cable management clip so you can better hide cables behind the monitor and keep the desk looking cleaner. A small row of adjustment buttons along with the power button sit on the underside.

    Now, keep in mind this is a “no thrills” monitor in terms of extras on the case, meaning there are no USB or USB-C ports on the back, and no built-in web cam. You cannot mount it on a wall. You have the monitor and stand with an older style VGA port and a HDMI port on the back to connect to a desktop, laptop, or other device that can handle either of those connections (a HDMI cable is included in the box). The power cord port and adjustment buttons on the bottom round it off, so it’s basic in terms of no extra fluff, but at under $200, the price reflects that. You still get a very good, sharp, and bright monitor that doesn’t use a ton of power via it’s 25 watt power adapter. At barely more than 5 pounds and overall VERY thin, you can carry it around and move it to wherever you need it and it’s not ugly, so you can leave it out all of the time.

    For those who have computers that are compatible with “AMD FreeSync”, it’s built into the M24f, and it synchronizes the monitor’s refresh rate with your graphics card and reduces screen stutter and lag. HP Display Center software is an option as well, to allow you to adjust settings via your computer if you prefer more control over the standard buttons.

    I really like the HP M24f. It has the basics I need, is just the right size without being “tv sized”, and has a very good level of sharpness, brightness, and color accuracy for my needs. It compliments a desktop and a laptop as well. For again, under $200, I think it’s well worth the price for what you get. Recommended and I give it 5 stars based on what you get for the price.

    Looks great on a desk

    But other than being aesthetically beautiful edge to edge screen and a wonderfully thin, compact design it was pretty average.

    Color accuracy out of the box was terrible. All presets were exceedingly red. Manually adjusting RGB gave better results, but I could never exceed beyond "acceptable". It's kind of like the difference between the "soft white" incandescent bulb and a bluish tinted LED bulb - was either too far one way or the other -- I could not find a balance that was pleasing to me.

    Freesync is a nice feature, however it's not very useful in this monitor. With 5 ms latency, While it will suffice for a casual gamer, it's simply not competitive with gaming displays at its price point.

    The IPS panel offers a wide viewing angle, and this monitor will certainly suffice as a day-to-day productivity tool. It will serve somewhat capably as a desktop display, or an external laptop display. You can write reports, browse the web, read/write email, and distract yourself with an occasional game. In fact you can pretty much do it all -- outside of graphics/photo editing -- and find everything acceptable. However computer displays reside in a very competitive market with a plethora of choices at different price points. There are better options in this price point.

    On a side note it is manufactured using 85% recycled materials, including plastics recovered from the ocean, and it does offer a featured called "eyesafe", which claims to be gentler on the eyes without affecting color quality. For me it seemed to impact the color

    What I liked:

    - Pleasing design and aesthetics.

    - Cable management stood out. I really like the layout which allows for hiding the cables well.

    - Very good viewing angles.

    - Crisp display for 24" 1080p monitor.

    - 75 Hz refresh rate

    - Manufactured using 85% recycled materials.

    Not so much:

    - No VESA suport; stand only allows for tilt.

    - No Display Port support; only VGA and HDMI.

    - Out of box color accuracy and preset modes.

    - Everything else about it was mediocre/average.

    Looks great, performs well, good value

    .

    Pros

    - Easy on the eyes for extended periods of time due to blue-light filtering and great contrast ratio resulting in crisp text.

    - Easy to set up, standard HDMI connection, well placed monitor controls

    - Wide viewing angle and vibrant color range due to the IPS tech

    - Attractive, thin modern design with thin bezels as well.

    - Turns on and off along with my computer

    Neutral

    - Tilts well, but no swivel

    - Decent response time, 5 ms

    - Decent refresh rate, 70 Hzbi

    - 300 nits (brightness) is low for viewing in sunlight, but decent in an office

    Cons

    - For the price point, I don’t have any cons. That’s rare for me!

    I wanted a second monitor to compliment my 14-inch Dell laptop screen, but turns out the HP 24” IPS LED was so good it became my primary screen in the office. The laptop screen is okay for on the road, but for the office I needed a screen that was easier on the eyes for long term viewing (bigger, sharper, better color). I wanted a decent performer but didn’t need fancy (costly) add-ons like a web cam, USB hub or internal speakers as I had those already on my desk. The HP 24" IPS LED FHD fits the bill nicely. The particular model I reviewed is the ‘mf’, but I suspect the others in this collection would work as well. What seems to vary is the connection and to some degree the frequency.

    Setup was quick and painless, I literally was up and running in less than 5 minutes and that was while simultaneously watching TV. The MF connects by either HDMI 1.4 or VGA. HDMI is pretty much the gold standard, so this works for me without having to pay for additional ports.

    I first used the HP as my primary screen (laptop closed) or off to the side as a second monitor. I was impressed with the wide viewing angle (kudos to the IPS tech) when I did that. Really made glancing over easy. The text is crisp and large, easy to read. Colors are vibrant. I noticed it is much easier on my eyes than other monitors which I attribute to the contrast ratio and the blue-light filter. It’s pretty much accepted that the blue light from our screens leads to headaches and even disrupted sleep, so reducing it is a good thing and seems to be working in my case. The net result is that its now my primary monitor and when I need a second screen for e-mail, it is my laptop!

    I should mention I use this monitor primarily for work. E-mails. Reports. And web browsing. But I have also used it to watch movies and it does that well. Gamers will note that this is NOT designed to be a competitive game monitor, but for the casual play I do it was fine.

    For me, 24” was about as big as I wanted to go for a FHD (1920 x 1080) screen. Anything bigger, like a 27” I need it to be 4k to not look pixelated. And that costs. The HP 24” is not a budget monitor, but I do appreciate the things they did to make it a value monitor that has a great picture.

    It is a good addition to my set up.

    HP 24" IPS LED FHD FreeSync Monitor Review

    The HP 24" IPS LED FHD FreeSync Monitor is highly rated everywhere, perfect size, thin, light weight and no eye strain after hours of use. I use the HDMI monitor port to connect to my small 14” screen laptop. Best Buy had the best sales price for this highly rated quality monitor and it was a fast delivery. I would purchase this monitor again.

    High quality, easy to use, 1080p monitor

    The HP M24f is high quality 1080p monitor with an excellent design and feature set.

    Image Quality

    Though 1920x1080 isn't a high resolution for a 24" display it sure looks good on this monitor! The colors are rich and vibrant! The viewing angle is excellent too. I can look at it from sharp angles horizontally or vertically and the image is still visible. I was surprised when I realized it has a low blue light mode that's always on. In fact, I opened an image of a color wheel and it looked normal and perfect. I use three monitors for work, this being the third, and comparing images across the three this one looks the brightest and the colors look as good or better than on the others. So I don't know how they're doing it but they have a way to reduce blue light being emitted without hurting the color quality - at least not that I could notice. It does have a "night mode" and that makes the display look like I would expect for a mode that reduces blue light. Obviously it's taking out a lot more blue but that's what it's supposed to do. The fact that I can have reduced blue light all the time without noticing it is awesome! The monitor is "eyesafe Display" certified which apparently has to do with reducing blue light and maintaining high color quality. There is also an "HP Enhance +" feature in the "Color" options. It seems to adjust the sharpness of what's on the display. I tried getting photos to show the difference it makes but that didn't work and since it's an effect applied by the monitor I can't get a screenshot showing the difference either. Anyway, it makes fine details more visible. For instance, hair on someone's head or details of a mountain in the distance in a photo. I've never seen a monitor do that!

    Design

    I like the thin top and side bezels of this monitor. I also like the design of the base while it doesn't swivel side to side it does tilt up and down and you can always turn the whole unit side to side anyway. I took some pictures of the base and the cable management for you to see. The base is easy to put together and the cable management works very well to run the power and video cables. It won't get too crazy since there is only one HDMI port and one VGA port. They get points for including VGA! While not used as often anymore there are still tons of systems out there that have VGA and no HDMI so it's good to see it there. There are no USB or audio ports on it. This monitor also supports AMD FreeSync for gaming.

    Ease of use

    I've worked with many different on screen menu systems for monitors. It seems like every monitor has a different one. I like this the best by far! Take a look at my pictures. There are four buttons plus the power button under the bottom right side of the monitor. The power button is easy to find because there's a bump with the power LED right next to it. Then, to activate and use the on screen display just press any one of the four buttons. Then you will see soft buttons pop up on the screen, one above each button. It's very self-explanatory and easy to get used to. You can even re-assign three of the four default soft buttons if you want.

    Preferred this over 4k

    Great monitor. I want to preface by saying this is not a TV for me. This is mostly for productivity, not really games or movies. I wrote this review because this turned into quite an ordeal for me and maybe I can save someone the same headache I went through trying to buy a monitor. Not quite as easy as thought it would be. I was looking for a versatile monitor, yet something that I could use for programming/coding. I have spent the last 10 years staring at a 15 inch MacBook Pro. I have never used an external monitor. I had grown very accustomed to the sharp images and text from the Retina display on the Mac. I went to the store looking at monitors and I was shocked at how poor the text quality was. (Windows Machines anyway not the Macs.) This was most important to me as I stare at text all day. After staring at code for 8 to 10 hours, it's important that you can maintain your focus without straining which will lead to fatigue and headaches. I figured 4k would be the best option for clear text. And I figured a 27 inch monitor would be perfect. Well not so fast. I saw how tiny the text was at this resolution. No way. My eyesight isn't the best anymore. So I decided a 32 inch monitor would be the way to go. Yet it had the same small text at 4k at 32 inches, although tons of real estate to work with. Actually more real estate than I need. So I figured I could just scale the resolution down. Well that didn't make a lot of sense because then I would be paying for a 4k monitor and rarely ever using the 4k resolution except on the rare occasion when I might watch a 4k movie. And then I read where people mentioned scaling not looking so great on particular sites or apps. So I decided to go with this 2k monitor at 32 inches. It just made more sense. I mean who cares about clear text if you can barely see what you're typing? Forget about 8 hours of straining to see that. If I wanted that I would just keep my MacBook and max out the resolution and I would get lots of real estate and really tiny text. Forget it. A bit of a learning curve.

    First I love the text on this LG monitor. I love the larger text size and it is as sharp and as clear as I need it to be. I don't need it to be razor sharp like the MacBook, because the text size makes up for it. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give the Mac a 10 and the LG an 8 on text clarity. I can sit a few feet back from the monitor and easily and clearly see the text. When web browsing (Youtube) I go full screen as I prefer the text size and sharpness on full screen and as a side I think Safari looks slightly better than Chrome at 2k on 32inch, so I have been using that more often. Anything Apple related looks great. Xcode/Swift, and anything on Apple's website. For productivity I love the LG On Screen Control software. (it seems to only work with DisplayPort cable and not HDMI. Go figure. I am using Mini DisplayPort/Thunderbolt to Displayport). I can divide up the screen into 3 or 4 sections and it just works. I prefer 3 sections so that I can maintain the large text, and I use the MacBook as a 4th window so to speak. I just drag whatever I'm using into the designated sections and the software fits in perfectly. I love stuff that just works. Again, a big plus for the 32inch size. I set all of the picture settings to custom. A big one that really helped was the gamma correction setting under game settings. I set it to gamma 3 and the blacks became perfectly black. Watching 4k and 8k YouTube videos on this monitor is pretty spectacular. Basically it's like being there. I actually appreciate them now on the bigger screen. It didn't make any difference to me before to watch them on the 15inch MacBook. The color really pops with this monitor too. No matter what you are looking at. Much more than the MacBook. Now when watching a movie, because of the size and resolution, I do sit further back and it looks great. If I sit up close, like I do when I'm working, then I can barely see the tiny little pixels, not that it's a big deal. Who watches a movie on a large screen and sits right in front of the screen anyway? A 5k or 8k Television for that purpose. I also love the adjustable height and tilt on this monitor as well. Adjustable height was an absolute must. This was one of only a handful that is height adjustable. This gets pretty high. High enough to allow me to place my MacBook in front of it without obstructing my view of the LG monitor. ( I'm so used to the Mac Keyboard and trackpad, that I refuse to use an external keyboard or mouse. I just prefer this set up now as I have been using it for so long.) I do have to tilt the MacBook screen back a bit. But I'm also using this on a drafting table that is set at a slight angle. So the monitor's base is a bit higher than the MacBook as well. But this setup works perfectly for me. No dual monitors and head turning and external junk. Everything perfectly aligned directly in front of me for perfect focus.

    I really struggled with this decision because I was expecting 4k to be the perfect solution. I really had to focus on my needs vs getting caught up in the 4k hype. It lives up to the hype, but it doesn't fulfill what I really need. Going 4k isn't really future proofing anything for me if I have to deal with tiny text.

    I was a bit frustrated at first because I ran into an unexpected problem using the DisplayPort cable. I had purchased a cheap cable. I attempted to adjust the refresh rate to 75hz, not that I need it, and then for some reason I could no longer get a picture. Perhaps there is an issue with the cable. Seems to be fine at 60hz. But it took a lot of troubleshooting just to get the picture back using DisplayPort. No issues with HDMI. I was able to run HDMI at 75hz. I'm blaming it on the cable. Who knows. I don't really care. I don't need 75hz anyway. I took off a point on quality because of this. If it happens again I'm going get an exchange on the same monitor. I still have 10 days to make sure it's good.

    For all of the reasons I have listed I really like this monitor. It's a great choice for me personally. I got it on sale as well. In the end this fulfills everything that I was looking for and does it very well. Very satisfied with this purchase. No 4k monitor for me.

    Great Quality, Great Price!

    I use my monitor to do my schoolwork and it is great for multitasking. The set up process was quick and easy. 4k resolution can be too sharp some times so QHD is perfect for me! The colors are vibrant, and the text is clear.

    Because the screen is so big, I also use it to watch shows/movies with my roommates. I have a pretty large desk so this monitor fits very well. I would recommend measuring your desk to make sure the monitor is not too large for you. I also like the fact that the monitor is height adjustable. Overall, very satisfied with this monitor and would highly recommend!

    Excellent all around monitor

    I reviewed this monitor a few days ago and I wanted to add some additional info. The more I use this monitor the more impressed I am with it. I do want to mention the quality of the stand. It is rock solid and built like a tank. The height adjustability is an excellent feature and the movement is very smooth. I have read comments regarding LG's non adjustable stand and many people mention that it transfers the vibration from typing on the keyboard to the monitor causing the monitor to shake. That is definitely not the case with this monitor. My MacBook display will shake a bit from typing but not this monitor.

    I have enjoyed my experience with this monitor. I appreciate the fact that it isn't taxing to my GPU at all. There is no fan noise coming from my MacBook. I know that a 4k monitor would be a bit more taxing on the GPU.

    The more I use this to code with the happier I am with it. Text clarity within XCode and VSCode is excellent. Text clarity in all of the software and apps that I use is excellent. The only variation I find is when web browsing. Some sites display text great and others not so great. It comes down to the website and browser much more so than the monitor itself, although the monitor does play a role in that too. Much like the quality of a video or photograph being dependent upon the quality of the camera that was used.

    I am attaching a photo to show the LG On Screen Control software and how I am able to divide up the screen into 4 parts. The software offers multiple configurations for screen management. I tried to show the clarity of different applications in that photo but not sure it translates in the photo. I also took some photos of an 8K video from Youtube. The photos weren't taken with any special camera settings, just an iPhone was used. The photos of the video were taken while the video was in motion. There were no special video settings applied to the monitor. No HDR setting, just the same settings I use everyday. Speaking of settings the monitor is highly adjustable. I have contrast, brightness, and most picture settings set to around 60 to 70%. I'm not into video or photo editing so I can't really speak on that subject. I can only say that I am quite impressed with the High Res Videos and Photos that I have seen using this monitor. I can only guess that 4k may be a better option than this. I've read comments from people that say otherwise. Just not my area of expertise. As an all around monitor I would say this is excellent.

    This is the best monitor I've ever used!

    This is the best monitor I've ever used. I am a graphic designer. so I very sensitive to color and quality. It satisfies my perspective like that. The design is minimal and sophisticated and has the best performance and quality. As expected, LG is the best display technology. Many monitors from Samsung and Dell have excellent quality, but this monitor is even more special. And I think qhd is the best fit for 32-inch monitor. If a monitor of this size was equipped with 4k, the letters would look too small to use. Qhd is enough. Anyway, I'm very happy with this monitor. I think he's gonna do a lot of graphic work with me over the next 10 years.

    Funkiest Ex Power Supply Ever

    Excellent monitor hampered by the LARGEST external power supply (wall wart) connected to the SHORTEST power cord ever, 4.5 feet. Before you buy, make sure you have an outlet close enough to connect a strip, it's about 2 feet too short for my use but I made it work. Really other than a cheap feeling to the case not a bad unit. BB was tops in efficiency getting it with courteous service.

    Would I recommend? Yes, with a warning to measure your desk and power supply distance before pulling the trigger.

    Really great monitor. The soft, non-reflective finish works well to avoid glare and reflections. Yet, the resolution remains great. I wanted to avoid downgrading to a standard HD monitor, and I’m glad I did. I get more screen area for my graphics projects. I am using it with the DP connection.

    Satisfied!

    The monitor is very nice and so much better than my old one. It works great for my gaming. I have noticed a few blocky views in certain areas of my game but I think it is just because I do not know how to properly change the setting for the best performance.

    The only negative i have is that the legs come out a bit too far and sometimes interferes with my mouse movements but that would not be an issue if my desk with bigger so the monitor could sit back a bit further. Overall I am very happy with the product and feel like it was a good purchase!

    PPi is about 185 4 and 5 k iMacs are around 216 pixels per inch. At my office we were comparing with the quality of those LG panels just to give you an idea of how crisp the picture is. On thing that is great about this monitor is that the power supply is build in making it very easy to transport and cable manage. Has a Vesa mount as well! Great monitor interface for adjusting color and brightness. Great color in viewing angles.

    The BEST after trying many good ones

    First let me tell you this is a hidden gem. After doing a lot of research I narrowed my options to the best I could get in the 200-300 range. I was looking to get text displayed as awesome as the MacBook, since I mostly work PDF's, office, programming... you get it.

    So my first option was getting same like my brother's new Dell ultra sharp 25 QHD (1440 resolution) (very good and comes with extra USB ports, adjustable, portrait mode...) and don't get me wrong the text and everything looks very good (better than 1080p), but not as good as the mac display.

    Then I tried my coworker's Lenovo L24 QHD (also 1440 resolution) and I liked it quite more than the Dell in terms of display (It doesn't come with all the extra usb ports, adjustable height, etc....but display wise so easy on the eyes for working long hours).

    The problem was when I saw BestBuy had the LG 24" 4K (2160 res) because I knew I had to try it, and so glad I did! The other two monitors were good but this is FANTASTIC. Because of the size 24" and the 4k resolution you get the most PPI ever, which translates into awesome crisp text, images, video. The controls are super easy to use (unlike the Dell) and on top of that you can download the software from LG to control all the settings of the monitor and split screens etc from your mac / or your windows machine! Fantastic display.

    Black could be darker, but still a good buy

    This is my first 4K computer monitor and, while it's not as nice as my medium range 4K UHD Samsung TV, it's definitely a noticeable upgrade over my old ViewSonic 1080P monitor. The resolution is perfect for the screen size in my opinion, at least for computer tasks. When watching movies, there is a noticeable difference in this monitor and the 1080P monitor I have sitting next to it. You can easily see more details on this monitor. The refresh rate isn't as crisp as my TV but it's not bad. The one thing I wish was better was the darkness of black colors. The monitor comes pretty bright. I ended up dropping the brightness and contrast down a bit but black colors still come out a bit brighter than black. Not a deal breaker. I didn't buy this for watching movies as much as I bought it for 4K video editing.

    One thing I that is odd... it has a setting for volume and when using an HDMI port the PC sees the speaker option on the monitor but no sound comes out! Weird.

    Very nice 4k displays

    The monitors are great... Perfect 4k @ 60hz pictures on both screens. Having audio and both HDMI and Display Ports is extremely advantageous. I used these to set up three displays for a Lenovo Yoga Book laptop. Worked perfectly. Only 2 issues: 1) the stands do not have any height adjustment. 2) one of the monitors had something rattling around inside. All monitors worked out of the box despite one having something rattling around. (Sounded like a piece of hard plastic). The menu and controls and set up are all easy. Getting used to the center pogo cursor control didn't take but a few seconds as well. Excellent product. I would buy again.

    Beautiful mirror image of MacPro.

    I was shopping for a 4K monitor to use with my MacBook. Leaning toward this LG 24" and when saw price on Best Buy, it was a done deal!

    Wonderful image, matches and mirrors my retina Mac display exactly.

    Would be 5 star, but it isn't seamless for plug and play. The sequence of turning on monitor seems to be important. I sometimes can use with laptop closed, but not always. (this is probably my problem of not understanding directions exactly)

    Overall very pleased...fun getting used to 24 inch screen after years of my 13 inch laptops!

    Monitor not providing 4k Resolution - initially

    I bought this Monitor for 4k PC. The monitor is great and I like to have finally a high resolution Monitor.

    The reason for a 4 star only is the lack of support. I bought a docking station from BestBuy as well. I have been fighting tooth and nail to get it to work though. Initially the Monitor would only get 2k resolution. I tired everything, searched online, downloaded all kinds up drivers to update on PC etc. I called LG support, I went to talk to GeekSquad at Bestbuy... but Nothing helped.

    I found some MAC users reporting similar issues (since monst MacBook guys have the high end 4k screen too). They use USB-C. docking stations vs the USB docking station I had bought for $100 from BB. So, I then got the USB-C docking station and it slowly started to work. It takes a while for the Monitor to adjust automatically to High Res. Just make sure you got into the Windows/Display section and adjust the resolution to maximum.

    I am glad that the monitor is great but again, lack of support from LG and other sources made it initially a bit frustrating.

    Hope this helps.

    Nice Monitor but not compatible to docking station

    Resolution: 5 star (really crispy text, good for Excel spreadsheets, for work)

    Assembly: 5 star (takes 5 minutes max)

    Adjustability: 3 star(can be tilted, but that's all it does. Can't have a portrait/vertical view, can't go up and down.)

    Compatibility: 2 star (HDMI cable works perfect, but display cable doesn't work, even after LG sent a replacement display cable. Called LG warranty, they told me they do have compatibility issues. so if you don't use a docking station like me, you will love this monitor. I'm torn between return it or keep it but having the inconvenience of not using a docking station.....)

    BUY THIS NOW

    This monitor is everything. Im a UI designer working every single day on designs that are text-heavy, have super thin lines, have subtle color differences in grays and whites - occasionally editing high-res images ... and this monitor is just wow. I am just so impressed with it. My old monitor worked pretty well but broke when we moved, so to replace it I did a lot of research; I actually bought another monitor that I just didn't love and took back. This one is FANTASTIC for the cost.

    Pros:

    -Pixel density. Obviously it's 4k, but it's in a smaller screen so the resolution is amazing. It really visually compares to my MacBook Pro retina display except that it's matte.

    -Text and line crispness... I know this is related to the pixel density, but every line is perfectly smooth and I can zoom out on one pixel lines and they still appear on the screen. Text is crystal clear even when small.

    -Size. A lot of 4k monitors start 27" or bigger. For me, that's too big. I don't sit that far from my monitor at my desk and it feels like 27" has me having to swivel my head to look around. It also doesn't take over my desk as much.

    -configuration: there are a lot of settings you can play with that are easy to use, but you kinda don't have to. It comes pretty well calibrated out of the box.

    -Viewing angles: the white is the same color no matter where I look at the screen and from whatever angle - this is important for me

    -PRICE! I'm sure there are better monitors out there, but I really didn't need the BEST of the best and didn't want to spend top dollar to get it. This is an amazing picture for the work I do at an impressive price point.

    Cons:

    Stand isn't height adjustable. It tilts, but that's about it. Seems sturdy and comes with a little clip to wrangle the power cord and connectors.

    No idea how this compares in video games/movies since I don't use it for that.

    A final note: I really don't keep up on my TV/Display technology and it took me a while to figure this out: you can't use HDMI to get a good resolution with this screen. You need DisplayPort (DP) connectors. Which is confusing since Macs have mini displayports and I didn't really get what reviewers were talking about. Once I got the correct Displayport cable for my Macbook Pro, I was good to go. If you have a regular displayport on your computer, it comes with a cable for that.

    Disclaimer: I bought this monitor using my husband's Bestbuy account so it won't show up as a verified purchase, but I do have it from BestBuy and use it daily :)

    Budget monitor worth a look

    .

    Sorry, couldn't resist the title pun, but seeing is believing and the Dell 24" S2421NX has numerous features that makes it easy on the eyes,a pleasure to use, and all without breaking the bank (which is the point.)

    Summary:

    Short on extras (like multiple inputs), but big on visual appeal (16.7 million colors), this monitor is a great second monitor for working at home or a first monitor for casual folks on a budget.

    More:

    My wife is the practical one and wanted a second monitor but didn’t to spend a lot. This fits the bill. With AMD FreeSync Technology, a refresh rate of 75 Hz, and a decent 4ms response time you might think this is tailor made for the casual (emphasis casual) gamer but with the vibrant colors typical of IPS monitors it is great for watching YouTube and Netflix as well. And sure all that means it handles the office well with no eyestrain after a long day. The monitor behave like much more expensive brethren.

    So why the relatively low price? Well, 1080 p for one thing, it's not 4k (which is at least twice the price). But text still looked crisp to me. Sure, if I squinted and looked close, I could tell it wasn't ultra-hi resolution. But, This does limit how much text you can comfortably read in a window, and balances well with the 24" diagonal size. Also on the cost saving side, it has all the inputs you could want, if all you want is HDMI 1.4. It has two of those, nothing else. Ergonomics wise, it has a solid stand and monitor, thin bezels, but it simply tilts forward or back, not side to side and not at a 90 degree angle (portrait versus landscape, but it can be VESA mounted in portrait mode). It has some thoughtful features like a cable management slot, security-lock slot and option for the VESA mount. Two speakers, and audio line out port though I was bummed that it did not support my headphones.

    Bottom line, solid monitor for the price. I tested in on a PC (Lenovo thinkpad), Apple MacBook Pro, and iPad. Worked fine with all, no connection issues,, but to be fair, not sure if there was a use case for the iPad. Thats more a ding on the iPad which only does mirroring, but it was the only time I was aware of the resolution compromises. The retinue screen on the iPad is amazing. But my wife uses it every day all day on her thinkpad, work and you tube, and loves it.

    Perfect for home office

    First of all, a shout out to the packaging engineers and packaging designers. Unboxing this item is a pleasure - the clear tape that allows removal of the entire contents in one go is appreciated, and all the packing materials remain in original condition should the need for repackaging arise. Included are the monitor itself, power cable and adapter, an HDMI cable and the base. I'm a mechanical design engineer by profession and spend 100% of my work time on computer. While I've got 2 monitors at work to project my laptop to but at home, I had only 1 which is a great monitor from another reputed brand. I've been working from home since March and this monitor was serving well. I didn't think I needed a second monitor until I stumbled upon this one from Dell. I immediately grabbed this to give it a try. It had lived up to my expectations so far. It's as good as my first monitor which has been exceptional so far. As far as the image quality and other features are concerned, this Dell monitor has matched my other monitor. The power is provided by an AC cord, without the bulky and awkward power transformer box that my first monitor came with. The size and resolution were a good match for my work laptop. The thin margin on 3 sides makes working across multiple monitors much easier.

    I selected this monitor because it has both HDMI and DisplayPort inputs, (it also has VGA, but I'll never use it) has a stand that will rotate to 90 degrees, allows for VESA mounting without blocking inputs, is 24" diagonally with 1980 x 1080 resolution, and small bezels. Time spent from opening the box to having the monitor up and running was under 5 minutes. Well designed packaging and easy to put together - no screwdriver required. The screen bezels are tiny which looks good and helps manage size. Dell did an awesome job of including VESA mounting holes (& hardware) in this one because I know some of their monitors lack this and so does my first monitor. As soon as I received this monitor, I also ordered a dual monitor mount to clear up some clutter from my desk and give it a cleaner look. But because my first monitor doesn't have the VESA mounting capability, I had to order a VESA mount adapter for that but with my Dell monitor, it wasn't an issue and it fitted perfectly on the stand. I didn't have to struggle a bit for my Dell monitor and on the other had, my other monitor did give me some trouble for adjusting the VESA mount adapter.

    Normally I don't care much about the menus built into the monitor, but these deserve special recognition. The user interface ("OSD" = On Screen Display) is very well organized, full featured, and easy to use. It is translucent. It does lack in-built speakers and webcam. I've never seen a monitor with built-in speakers that sounded good anyways. While it does not matter to me because I only use it for work, it may be a deciding factor for few people.

    PROS:

    - It has a phenomenal picture quality.

    - It looks super sleek and classy as it has no border but for the bottom.

    - Base is solid with zero wobble (note that the base is a little big).

    - Controls are on the bottom of the monitor, not the back or side - they are hidden but accessible and menus are intuitive.

    - Love the tilt and the up/down adjustability.

    - Whatever all the stats are that denote how smooth the action is and how little choppiness there is - this is wonderful. I do not experience any discernible lag with mouse movement or typing.

    - Comes with an HDMI cord.

    CONS:

    - Lacks built-in speakers (not a big deal for me, might be for others)

    - Bottom bezel is a tad bit bigger than other three edge bezels (again not a big issue for me as my first monitor is same). This actually make my both monitor complement each other.

    Overall I am very pleased with this monitor, it is a GREAT VALUE!

    Good basic monitor

    Reputable brand Dell has a great monitor for anyone looking to have a comfortable viewing experience. I think 24 inches is the sweet spot for most people looking for a well priced monitor. At full HD 1920x1080 resolution, it is great for all videos and gaming. The IPS panel also helps for those looking for accurate color representation in media. Having 2 hdmi ports helps to move from different inputs. Great for anyone working from home.

    Great Monitor

    I love this Dell Monitor. It’s an upgrade for me from a 20” screen. My old monitor was so old…

    {How old was it?}

    …it was so old that it still used a serial port. I had to use a serial to HDMI converter to use it with my current tower.

    This Dell Monitor was simple to set up and install. I used an HDMI cable (included) to connect to my computer, plugged the monitor into the power, and turned it on.

    The screen itself is a matte finish. I would not say it is fingerprint proof, as I somehow got something on the screen while attaching the stand that caused streaks. They did not just wipe off as I expected, but they did come off. The resolution is easy on my eyes and my work is easier to see.

    The unit is large without being too overwhelming for my small desk. If space is a limitation, though, you may want to consider getting a monitor arm.

    I would recommend to anyone considering getting a new monitor.

    Solid Monitor!

    Great monitor. Picture quality is great! The thin bezel really looks like I’m just seeing a screen sitting on my desktop and not a huge monitor bezel encasing a screen on my desk top. Easy on the eyes and pictures and text are super clear and easy to read.

    I also really like the dual HDMI ports. I got a USB C HDMI adapter and can run it on anything now. Hooked it up to my IMAC and Surface laptop easily. The surface defaults at 3000x2000 so the Dell monitor either had a little black on the sides or you can adjust resolution on your laptop to get it to the full screen. Either way it looked good. The mac had no troubles either.

    Solid monitor for its price point! minus 1 star for not being able to turn it vertical. With todays electronic doc and multiple screen work spaces, a monitor really need to flip vertically in my opinion. If you only plan to use it horizontally 5 stars. For me, it was an oversight on Dell’s part.

    Perfect for gaming!

    I’m certainly not a gaming expert but my son is and he is absolutely in love with his new monitor. I shopped around and settled on this because of the good reviews (didn’t let me down) and Best Buy always takes care of us if issues arise. My son has had this for almost a month and we haven’t had 1 issue. I read another reviewer mentioning something about the settings needing to be tweaked but it was perfect out of the box. The only issue I have, my daughter wants 1 now!

    Enveloping Curved Monitor with Joystick Control

    Amazing curved screen really puts you in the action with this Dell gaming monitor. It gives you a different viewpoint that makes gaming more intense and more realistic. Easy to use Joystick on the rear panel allows you to control the way you want to set up this Curved Monitor. The Joystick and Curved monitor, set this Dell apart from the rest.

    • Setup – Once I unboxed the Curved Monitor, there were 2 additional solid pieces for connecting. These 2 pieces were the base and stand riser. The Base attaches to the Riser with a handle screw. Once that was put on, the Curved Monitor back slid into the Riser. The Curved Monitor was base heavy. The plastic pieces with metal reinforcements made this Curved Monitor so firm, it would take more than a bump to knock it over! SOLID! After the easy assembly, the box contained a HDMI cable and a power cord.

    • Connections – The connections for the Curved Monitor are located near the middle of the back facing downwards. There you can connect your power cord, two locks (security, stand), 2 HMDI ports, 1 display port and a headphone 3.5mm jack. I connected the power cord and plugged the Curved Monitor. Then I plugged the HDMI cable from the Laptop to HDMI input on the back of the Curved Monitor. It was plug n play after turning on the power. The Curved Monitor brightened up the room when I pressed the power lit button on the bottom right front. It was simple to set up and looked great even before I made adjustments. The only issue I have run into is the headphone jack. I have plugged wired headphones and I get no sound. I have looked thru the menus, but had no success. There is no sound at all coming from the monitor. I consider this a minor detail when you look at the whole package that is the Dell 27in Curved Gaming Monitor.

    • Joystick – A feature that really makes this Curved monitor a game changer is the Joystick. It makes moving the Joystick to the either side, up and down to navigate options to change menus and monitor options a breeze. It’s also easy to get to! On the back right side as you face the Curved Monitor, there are 4 buttons and the Joystick. I activated the OSD (on screen display) by pressing in the Joystick. The main options are Game, Brightness/Contrast, Input source, Display, Audio, Menu, Personalize and other. From this menu I am able to operate changes for how I would like the Curved Monitor to look. I made these adjustments (options) to get the screen effects that personalized the Curved Monitor for me. First, I kept the Standard Preset Mode, turned on the AMD FreeSync, made the Response Time fast and left the Dark Stablizer at 0 (my room is darker). Secondly, I set the Brightness at 75 and the Contrast at 88, I chose the input #1 which I had plugged the HMDI Cable into the back of the Curved Monitor and adjusted the sharpness at 70. Now, you can adjust the options however you like, but these helped make the Curved Monitor setup great for me. Next I was able to see the saved personalized short cut buttons. The 4 buttons are located just under the Joystick. Each one has a special function. It helped me navigate the Curved Monitor options without going through the OSD. They are as follows: Preset Mode, Dark Stabilizer and Brightness/Contrast with menus. The Joystick and shortcut buttons really made my personalized options extremely easy to access.

    • Curved Monitor Features – The 27in Curved Gaming Monitor from Dell is outstanding for gaming. The screen displays 1920x1080 at 144 MHz so action packed games run smooth and graphics are Full HD. Another feature is the Moving Picture Respose Time (MPRT) which is set at 1 ms that keeps the action going without monitor fatigued or getting smeared. The anti-glare 16x9 widescreen is rich with 16.7 million colors that make it brilliant to watch. I found the experience outstanding! Playing Bulletstorm and Serious Sam BFE never looked better. Whether I am shooting or running in the games, detailed graphics are the normal. The active Matrix thin-film transistor (TFT) with its LED screen, light up to the very edge with a thin bezel. The backlighting LED with 3000:1 contrast will make the difference for you in gaming. The Curved Monitor is treated for anti-glare reflection and decreases the level of blue light that is put out from the screen. This means your eyes will be able to keep up in comfort with the Curved Monitor’s smooth graphics, accurate coloration, and no lag time for hours of intense game play. Another feature that really makes a difference in this Curved Monitor is the Sync. AMD FreeSync Premium works with your graphics card to keep the screen clean in great action scenes from looking fuzzy and blurred. It made the difference for the on screen graphics from looking good to looking great! Not to be overlooked, the screen tilt is -5 degrees to 21 degrees meaning you can find a comfortable position when viewing the Curved Monitor.

    The Curved Monitor Screen is flat out amazing. Whether you are playing games, working on Microsoft Office or browsing the net, you will notice the difference a Curved Monitor makes. To me, images seem to surround you and envelope you in whatever you are doing with the computer. This Curved Monitor takes gaming to another level.

    Solid budget gamer with 144Hz, FreeSync, and more

    The Dell S2721HGF is a 27” 1080p VA curved high variable refresh rate monitor offering MPRT support. There’s a lot packed into that sentence, but the essence of what sets the S2721 apart is that nervana of technologies and features and not much else. Dell has consistently put out monitors that cater to the gaming crowd with solid core feature sets, and the S2721 doesn’t sway from that lineage.

    Physically the monitor is wrapped in matte plastic. The back has a subtle design that makes me think of 80’s car window louvers. No RGB or lights other than the white on LED. It’s a subtle and handsome design. Obviously it’s curved at a 1500R (1.5M radius if you tried to make a circle). There are a plethora of buttons on the back, but all functions are controlled through a simple joystick/button. Bezels are thin at 7mm, and the stand offers a generous height adjustment (5”) and tilt (-5 to 21 degrees). As with most midrange and higher Dell monitors, the stand is excellent. VESA 100x100 is also available with screws preinstalled. Port selection is really good too, with DisplayPort, and dual HDMI. You could easily use a console or two and a PC with this monitor. Power is a standard AC cable, so no annoying power brick!

    So what sets the S2721HGF apart from Dell’s other offerings? Well, Dell’s curved monitor selection (other than ultrawides) is generally pretty sparse, making this a pretty unique offering. Curved monitors are more comfortable because the eye itself is curved. The image is less straining on our eyes, and as a result feels more immersive. There are downsides, mostly in image distortion and geometry that affect some professional work. The truth is, I’ve been using curved monitors for years now, and I have a hard time going back to a flat screen when the panel is larger than 24”. I was a skeptic, but having used a 32” 16:9 4K curved, as well as a few ultrawides, I’m convinced. The importance of a curve becomes less as the size decreases, but even on a 27” 16:9 panel it’s noticeable.

    But the curve is just one aspect of the monitor. Another selling feature that will attract a crowd is the 144Hz refresh rate. If you’re an aspiring gamer, or even a casual FPS player, then I’d recommend checking out why the pros go for high refresh rates. Arguments of perceived screens per second still exist, but there have been many tests proving that the higher the refresh rate, the lower the perceived lag from mouse to game, which results in better and more consistent playing. Again, I was a skeptic for a long time, having grown up on 60Hz monitors and playing relatively competitive shooters. While the brain adjusts and adapts to 60Hz, 120, 144, or 240Hz do make measurable differences. The 144Hz that this monitor supports is a great place to be, as anyone will tell you the night and day difference between a 60 and 120+ refresh rate with diminishing appreciation after 120Hz. So why is it 144Hz? Well, while 60Hz has been the norm for a long time on PCs, movies and cinematics run at 24 FPS. If your refresh rate is a multiple of 24 then you don’t get the judder associated with the mismatch of frames.

    Let’s keep breaking down the topics in that first sentence: What is MPRT? LCDs struggle with blur. Blur occurs on monitors due to the way our brains/eyes work vs how LCDs and OLEDs work. MPRT (Moving Picture Response Time) attempts to correct this visual phenomenon by strobing the backlight to reduce the perceived blur. This is enabled through the settings menu, specifically on the response time. So does it work? While the MPRT setting does make a very visible difference on the famous UFO test (google it), the results for me were mixed. First of all enabling MPRT does affect brightness output (on a monitor that’s already not that bright). Secondly, the perception at higher motions is that it feels like a ghost or trail image (different from ghosting from overdrive). I noticed this playing CS:GO, and honestly I preferred the extreme overdrive setting to MPRT. Your mileage may vary, as the science behind how MPRT works is interesting. However, this setting isn’t enabled by default, and it will disable VRR support (Freesync Premium), so I would suspect many purchasers of this monitor won’t enable it.

    Moving on to VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) support, the S2721 shines here with Freesync Premium support and being G-Sync compatible. If you haven’t had a variable refresh rate experience yet, this monitor does a great job and supports essentially every graphics card on the market. The G-Sync pendulum demo is a great testing tool for this (even on AMD cards) and even simulating 40-60 frames per second, the motion of the pendum was natural. Without VRR the frames being rendered by your graphics card won’t meet up perfectly with the monitor. You can fix this with VSync, but that causes its own issues. VRR fixes this by syncing the monitor to a multiple of the frame. This is especially important if you have games that can’t hold the native refresh rate of your monitor (144hz), as it maintains a consistent experience all the way down to the 40 FPS range (lower than that and you’ll probably start to notice the lower FPS more intensely). Through experimentation, the freesync range appears to be 55-144Hz, with frame doubling occurring below 55Hz. Given the tradeoff, I would choose VRR over MPRT any day. Overall, this is a great G-sync compatible monitor.

    Now, the VA referenced stands for Vertical Alignment, which is the LCD panel tech. TN is one of the oldest, and fastest tech, while IPS is renowned for colors, viewing angle and image quality. VA is the middle ground, offering some of the colors advantages, viewing angles, while also bringing superior contrast. VA’s do have downsides, including black smearing caused by a natural sluggishness between swapping between grays (this is where MPRT stood out for me, as it removes much of this). Overall, the contrast ratio mates well to gaming, and the screen uniformity is pretty good on this display. Unlike IPS panels, the VA might have a bit of glow in dark scenarios, but it doesn’t have bright spots around the edges. The curve doesn’t have any impact on the uniformity which is showing how mature the tech has become.

    So some other details about this monitor. The OSD (on screen display) is super helpful and awesome. The Game menu has lots of presets, including 3 fully customizable game modes which let you tweak color. There’s an Game Enhanced Mode with a timer, frame rate, and display alignment settings - of which Timer is about the only useful thing. You can turn on and off FreeSync. The MPRT is hidden under the response time, but there are 3 other overdrive settings: Fast, Super Fast, and Extreme. Obviously Extreme is the best because it’s extreme… also it appeared to have the least ghosting or inverse ghosting. Dark stabilizer lets you adjust the gamma to see better in dark scenes in a game (don’t use it). The other menus are pretty basic, but when you get to ‘Personalize’ you see one of Dell’s most famous features. They really like giving the user the ability to adjust settings quickly on the display by mapping buttons to whatever setting you want, and it's amazing. It’s a huge reason to get a Dell monitor, as if you want to adjust between presets, it’s simply a button push.

    Colors seem accurate enough for the VA panel, and the standard gamma seemed on point. I don’t have a colorimeter to calibrate the display, but considering this is for gaming, dialing in the settings that look the best to you is probably the right answer. The panel itself is 8-bit, but I observed no banding issues - that said it’s no 10bit panel. Again, out of the box, the image was pretty well tuned neutral so most will be happy without further tweaking. If you want to tweak, the built in Game color profiles added to the custom profile mean you get 4 fully customizable color profiles - not bad for a budget gamer.

    So what downsides are there? First and foremost 1080p FHD. 1080p is a fine resolution, but at 27” it starts to get a very coarse feeling. This is especially apparently in productivity where the VA panel’s subpixel arrangement does it no favors with text exacerbating the situation. If you do a lot of school or work this display is tolerable, but not ideal. VA panels do have response time issues, and while this is an excellent example, it’s no TN. Even with MPRT there are issues. Nothing that I personally notice in gaming, but some might. HDR is absent, but at this price point that’s actually fine and even preferred (as even expensive monitors don’t do HDR well yet). No USB hub or speakers, but at least there is audio passthrough via a 3.5mm jack (hook speakers to that and PC/Xbox/PS would all route audio when their input was selected).

    Alternatively Dell’s S2721DGF model sports IPS, 165Hz, and 1440p - which while costing more is a better investment for those going more multi-function. However if all you’re doing is gaming on this monitor, 1080p is a great sweet spot for PC and obviously consoles, as it’s easier to drive than 1440p. Plus this model is curved, and the D is not.

    At it’s given price, it’s a value. While there are other 1080p curved monitors, not many sport the high refresh rate, VRR support, customizability and general feature set. Most of those alternatives hit in the 23-24” range, and 27” is more comfortable for gaming in my opinion. Overall this is an amazing monitor for gaming on a budget.

    Surprised

    I bought this item "Open Box Excellent". Returned it four days later due to two rather noticeable lines going horizontally across the bottom of the screen. The box was pretty tattered upon arrival and the actual monitor was pretty dusty. I'm very skeptical about buying open box items now. Very surprised Best Buy's open box products have declined since I last purchased one.

    Decent monitor, just what I expected.

    Good monitor overall but the screen is a little bit too dark. The rest is very good. If you have a budget, consider buying this monitor. Recommended for people with budgets but not to people that looks for the best 144hz 1080p monitor, this is good/decent but not the best one!. Oh, I forgot to say that I got a dead pixel on the middle-right of the screen (as shown in the 3rd picture), is so little that I prefer not to return it for a new one even tho I can.

    Bought 2 one randomly broke 3 months later

    I bought 2 of these, I'm making this review 4 months later, the monitors were amazing quality and perfectly fine. In tell, last month, one of mine randomly broke for no reason, the inside paneling cracked and I didn't even do anything to it. Bestbuy gave me a full refund but I had to talk to them for a long time to get a refund... MSI didn't want to give me a refund even though it was mostly their fault for the bad design, so I would say the durability is terrible, but everything else is fine now, I only have one monitor now. Also, it's super hard to put the HDMI/DVI/DP inside you cant put it in easily because the back wasn't designed very well It takes an hour to get it switched there is a thing blocking it so you can't even see where it goes! also back when I bought them they where 40 dollars off so if I bought a new one to match the other monitor then I'm going to have to pay $40, I don't think I'll be buying another MSI monitor.

    Exceptional “Jack of All Trades” 1080p Monitor

    =============================

    >>>>> Bottom Line Up front: <<<<<

    =============================

    The 24” HP M24f does so many things right – especially at this price point – that I feel that it becomes really hard to find any deal breaking faults; without feeling like I am going into “knit-picking” mode. If you’re looking for something on the affordable side of the 24” monitor segment, particularly for a home office or workstation application - the M24f’s IPS panel is going to be tough to beat. It looks absolutely great on almost any desk, excellent viewing angles, a respectable 99% sRGB color gamut reproduction, and thoughtful productivity enhancing touches like HP’s Eye Ease (the always on blue light filtering tech) to help protect your eyes while you’re plugging away on your work for hours on end. The M24f supports AMD FreeSync variable refresh rate and is a more than capable of pulling double duty for casual HD gaming at “lower” refresh rates (compared to the “higher 144Hz + up models). HP makes other gaming monitors that would undoubtedly be better suited if that what you’re looking.

    ========================================

    >>>>> Picture Quality/Image Reproduction: <<<<<

    ========================================

    I work with a lot, and I do mean a lot, of computer monitors, TV monitors, projectors, and everything in between for what seems like decades now. Needless to say, many of those monitors have been HP monitors throughout that time. I have come to respect HP for always providing a quality product for almost every segment and the M24f is no exception. It sports an exceptionally crisp 1920 x 1080 native display resolution that HP states offers “ultra-wide 178-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles”. I’d be hard pressed to argue with their claims, because even compared to other IPS panels in this size range, something about the M24f just “popped” in images and video when I started messing around with the viewing angles in study. The M24f also has a more than respectable color reproduction with 99% sRGB color space. Like literally every monitor – ever – you will most likely have to “tune” or calibrate the monitor to enhance the color palate for a particular type of workload or productivity task in order to get the most visual effect out of the images/videos you are working with.

    =========================

    >>>>> Physical Design: <<<<<

    =========================

    I really liked the elegant and simplistic design aesthetic that HP used for the M24f. In summary - it looks more expensive than it is. Particularly when viewed from the side or at corner angles that allow the particularly slim upper and side bezels showcase the IPS panel even more. Add in the M24f’s simple, yet cleverly implemented cable management system that runs down the back of the silver base, it is ideal for workstation use or front office style desks where a smaller 24” form factor or visual exterior design appeal matters more than sheer physical screen size. I am not particularly crazy about the hidden OSD control buttons along the lower right side – but they work well enough and fit in with the whole “minimalistic” design theme that is going on here. I was disappointed to learn that the M24f does NOT support VESA mounting, which is a bummer for me (and anyone else) that has a multiple monitor arm set up at home or in the workspace. While the M24f’s screen may sport exceptional viewing angles – sadly the monitor arm and base do not. You can “tilt” and adjust the horizontal viewing angle, the stand/base does not offer vertical height adjustment not does the screen tilt left – to -right either. That being said, even with the limited base adjustment, the IPS screen viewing angles make the whole package more than manageable for everyday use. Also, I can’t neglect to mention how light the whole unit feels, almost too light – which is a compliment. Unfortunately, I was also disappointed to learn that there are no “built-in” speakers for “basic” sound reproduction, which isn’t really a negative thing, but more of something to be aware of in case you needed that functionality out the box. I wasn’t expecting the M24f to have a built-in web camera either at this price point – so I was not surprised to learn it didn’t actually have one after setting it up.

    ==========================

    >>>>> Closing thoughts: <<<<<

    ==========================

    I opted to use the M24f as my “main” monitor to get a feel if it could handle all my day to work loads, and for the most part it exceeded my expectations, however there were some things that warrant considerations/thoughts before you pull the trigger.

    - Make sure 24” is the appropriate size for your workloads and personal needs. All the best image quality and viewing angles in world won’t make your desktop bigger. So, make sure this size works for you.

    - it is not a substitute for a high end/high resolution/high frame rate gaming monitor. This monitor is limited to a maximum refresh rate of 70Hz, a resolution of 1920 x 1080, and a 5-millisecond response time and lack of HDR support – HP makes other gaming monitors that would undoubtedly be better suited if that what you’re looking for – but casual gaming was no problem for the M24f.

    - while the build quality is solid, I still can’t help but feel HP did a little too much cost cutting when I think about the lack of VESA mounting integration, lack of built-in speakers, and “basic” adjustability of the base. This also comes across in the limited amount of input option as you only have 1x HDMI or 1x VGA connector. (I happen to primarily use Display Port).

    In the end I was still impressed with everything HP brought to the table with the M24f – particularly at the sub $200 MSRP. I think this is perfect for smaller workstations, desk, or a highly visible study (as in my usage case) where the design aesthetics and extremely crisp and vibrant IPS can be seen in all its glory.

    An excellent monitor for the price

    A growing number of people today are doing much if not all of their computing on phone and tablet screens. More on laptops that usually top out at 15 inches (or less). While fine for basic tasks, sometimes you need more screen space, especially when photo and video editing, or doing a video chat call with a class or office. The HP M24f monitor hits that sweet spot at 24 inches (23.8 diagonally, actually), where it gives you a lot more space to work on, but isn’t so large it overwhelms your eyes or can’t fit in a smaller workspace area.

    The M24f has a 1080p / 70Hz resolution which is just fine for something this size, is very bright, and has a 99% rated sRGB color range for accurate colors, and they look really nice on this screen. Mine had zero dead pixels (yay!). The stand comes in two pieces which basically just snap onto the monitor and a screw on the bottom secures it; note though, the stand does not adjust in terms of height, but does tilt forward and back easily for the best angle. The monitor has a nice wide viewing range of 178 degrees, meaning you don’t have to be right in front of it to see the clarity and brightness – you can be a bit off to the side, or others around you can see it just as well as you do, which not every monitor can claim – and it’s accurate in this case as even off to the side I could see everything just as clearly as in front. Since the bezels on three sides are incredibly thin, this makes for a nice viewing experience. There’s a built-in blue light filter that helps to reduce eye strain as well, that stays on automatically all of the time, which comes in handy when you are having to stare at the screen for longer periods of time. I tend to get a headache after a couple of hours of monitor time and this must work because so far I haven’t had this issue with the M24f. A snap-off piece on the back of the stand has a cable management clip so you can better hide cables behind the monitor and keep the desk looking cleaner. A small row of adjustment buttons along with the power button sit on the underside.

    Now, keep in mind this is a “no thrills” monitor in terms of extras on the case, meaning there are no USB or USB-C ports on the back, and no built-in web cam. You cannot mount it on a wall. You have the monitor and stand with an older style VGA port and a HDMI port on the back to connect to a desktop, laptop, or other device that can handle either of those connections (a HDMI cable is included in the box). The power cord port and adjustment buttons on the bottom round it off, so it’s basic in terms of no extra fluff, but at under $200, the price reflects that. You still get a very good, sharp, and bright monitor that doesn’t use a ton of power via it’s 25 watt power adapter. At barely more than 5 pounds and overall VERY thin, you can carry it around and move it to wherever you need it and it’s not ugly, so you can leave it out all of the time.

    For those who have computers that are compatible with “AMD FreeSync”, it’s built into the M24f, and it synchronizes the monitor’s refresh rate with your graphics card and reduces screen stutter and lag. HP Display Center software is an option as well, to allow you to adjust settings via your computer if you prefer more control over the standard buttons.

    I really like the HP M24f. It has the basics I need, is just the right size without being “tv sized”, and has a very good level of sharpness, brightness, and color accuracy for my needs. It compliments a desktop and a laptop as well. For again, under $200, I think it’s well worth the price for what you get. Recommended and I give it 5 stars based on what you get for the price.

    Looks great on a desk

    But other than being aesthetically beautiful edge to edge screen and a wonderfully thin, compact design it was pretty average.

    Color accuracy out of the box was terrible. All presets were exceedingly red. Manually adjusting RGB gave better results, but I could never exceed beyond "acceptable". It's kind of like the difference between the "soft white" incandescent bulb and a bluish tinted LED bulb - was either too far one way or the other -- I could not find a balance that was pleasing to me.

    Freesync is a nice feature, however it's not very useful in this monitor. With 5 ms latency, While it will suffice for a casual gamer, it's simply not competitive with gaming displays at its price point.

    The IPS panel offers a wide viewing angle, and this monitor will certainly suffice as a day-to-day productivity tool. It will serve somewhat capably as a desktop display, or an external laptop display. You can write reports, browse the web, read/write email, and distract yourself with an occasional game. In fact you can pretty much do it all -- outside of graphics/photo editing -- and find everything acceptable. However computer displays reside in a very competitive market with a plethora of choices at different price points. There are better options in this price point.

    On a side note it is manufactured using 85% recycled materials, including plastics recovered from the ocean, and it does offer a featured called "eyesafe", which claims to be gentler on the eyes without affecting color quality. For me it seemed to impact the color

    What I liked:

    - Pleasing design and aesthetics.

    - Cable management stood out. I really like the layout which allows for hiding the cables well.

    - Very good viewing angles.

    - Crisp display for 24" 1080p monitor.

    - 75 Hz refresh rate

    - Manufactured using 85% recycled materials.

    Not so much:

    - No VESA suport; stand only allows for tilt.

    - No Display Port support; only VGA and HDMI.

    - Out of box color accuracy and preset modes.

    - Everything else about it was mediocre/average.

    Looks great, performs well, good value

    .

    Pros

    - Easy on the eyes for extended periods of time due to blue-light filtering and great contrast ratio resulting in crisp text.

    - Easy to set up, standard HDMI connection, well placed monitor controls

    - Wide viewing angle and vibrant color range due to the IPS tech

    - Attractive, thin modern design with thin bezels as well.

    - Turns on and off along with my computer

    Neutral

    - Tilts well, but no swivel

    - Decent response time, 5 ms

    - Decent refresh rate, 70 Hzbi

    - 300 nits (brightness) is low for viewing in sunlight, but decent in an office

    Cons

    - For the price point, I don’t have any cons. That’s rare for me!

    I wanted a second monitor to compliment my 14-inch Dell laptop screen, but turns out the HP 24” IPS LED was so good it became my primary screen in the office. The laptop screen is okay for on the road, but for the office I needed a screen that was easier on the eyes for long term viewing (bigger, sharper, better color). I wanted a decent performer but didn’t need fancy (costly) add-ons like a web cam, USB hub or internal speakers as I had those already on my desk. The HP 24" IPS LED FHD fits the bill nicely. The particular model I reviewed is the ‘mf’, but I suspect the others in this collection would work as well. What seems to vary is the connection and to some degree the frequency.

    Setup was quick and painless, I literally was up and running in less than 5 minutes and that was while simultaneously watching TV. The MF connects by either HDMI 1.4 or VGA. HDMI is pretty much the gold standard, so this works for me without having to pay for additional ports.

    I first used the HP as my primary screen (laptop closed) or off to the side as a second monitor. I was impressed with the wide viewing angle (kudos to the IPS tech) when I did that. Really made glancing over easy. The text is crisp and large, easy to read. Colors are vibrant. I noticed it is much easier on my eyes than other monitors which I attribute to the contrast ratio and the blue-light filter. It’s pretty much accepted that the blue light from our screens leads to headaches and even disrupted sleep, so reducing it is a good thing and seems to be working in my case. The net result is that its now my primary monitor and when I need a second screen for e-mail, it is my laptop!

    I should mention I use this monitor primarily for work. E-mails. Reports. And web browsing. But I have also used it to watch movies and it does that well. Gamers will note that this is NOT designed to be a competitive game monitor, but for the casual play I do it was fine.

    For me, 24” was about as big as I wanted to go for a FHD (1920 x 1080) screen. Anything bigger, like a 27” I need it to be 4k to not look pixelated. And that costs. The HP 24” is not a budget monitor, but I do appreciate the things they did to make it a value monitor that has a great picture.

    It is a good addition to my set up.

    HP 24" IPS LED FHD FreeSync Monitor Review

    The HP 24" IPS LED FHD FreeSync Monitor is highly rated everywhere, perfect size, thin, light weight and no eye strain after hours of use. I use the HDMI monitor port to connect to my small 14” screen laptop. Best Buy had the best sales price for this highly rated quality monitor and it was a fast delivery. I would purchase this monitor again.

    High quality, easy to use, 1080p monitor

    The HP M24f is high quality 1080p monitor with an excellent design and feature set.

    Image Quality

    Though 1920x1080 isn't a high resolution for a 24" display it sure looks good on this monitor! The colors are rich and vibrant! The viewing angle is excellent too. I can look at it from sharp angles horizontally or vertically and the image is still visible. I was surprised when I realized it has a low blue light mode that's always on. In fact, I opened an image of a color wheel and it looked normal and perfect. I use three monitors for work, this being the third, and comparing images across the three this one looks the brightest and the colors look as good or better than on the others. So I don't know how they're doing it but they have a way to reduce blue light being emitted without hurting the color quality - at least not that I could notice. It does have a "night mode" and that makes the display look like I would expect for a mode that reduces blue light. Obviously it's taking out a lot more blue but that's what it's supposed to do. The fact that I can have reduced blue light all the time without noticing it is awesome! The monitor is "eyesafe Display" certified which apparently has to do with reducing blue light and maintaining high color quality. There is also an "HP Enhance +" feature in the "Color" options. It seems to adjust the sharpness of what's on the display. I tried getting photos to show the difference it makes but that didn't work and since it's an effect applied by the monitor I can't get a screenshot showing the difference either. Anyway, it makes fine details more visible. For instance, hair on someone's head or details of a mountain in the distance in a photo. I've never seen a monitor do that!

    Design

    I like the thin top and side bezels of this monitor. I also like the design of the base while it doesn't swivel side to side it does tilt up and down and you can always turn the whole unit side to side anyway. I took some pictures of the base and the cable management for you to see. The base is easy to put together and the cable management works very well to run the power and video cables. It won't get too crazy since there is only one HDMI port and one VGA port. They get points for including VGA! While not used as often anymore there are still tons of systems out there that have VGA and no HDMI so it's good to see it there. There are no USB or audio ports on it. This monitor also supports AMD FreeSync for gaming.

    Ease of use

    I've worked with many different on screen menu systems for monitors. It seems like every monitor has a different one. I like this the best by far! Take a look at my pictures. There are four buttons plus the power button under the bottom right side of the monitor. The power button is easy to find because there's a bump with the power LED right next to it. Then, to activate and use the on screen display just press any one of the four buttons. Then you will see soft buttons pop up on the screen, one above each button. It's very self-explanatory and easy to get used to. You can even re-assign three of the four default soft buttons if you want.

    Good monitor. Not sure about quality +

    I purchased one of these through LG.

    Then two more through Best Buy. Unfortunately, one of the last pair has a whole vertical line of stuck pixels (a turquoise line).

    Under normal circumstances, I would just return for a replacement. The catch is, this monitor is almost always out of stock. Two monitors does me no good whatsoever, so not only am I down one, I'm down two - for an indefinite period of time.

    Otherwise, I am mostly happy with the monitors. Yes, backlight bleed is greater than it should be. Doesn't matter for my situation though.

    DOES IT ALL!!!

    Now a days a lot of people have been working from home, video conferencing, or even video calling friends and family and now you can do it all from your monitor. The new Dell 24-inch Video conferencing monitor comes with a built-in HD webcam, Noise cancelling microphone, 5W speaker, and to top it all off it also has a built in 65w USB-C charger, that also delivers video, audio, and data, this monitor does it all. So, let’s go over the features, Pros and Cons on this new Dell monitor.

    Features:

    Setup – The setup of this monitor and like other Dell monitors is very simple and user friendly and no tools required. In the box you will get the monitor, the base, stand, power cord, and a USB-C cable. The monitor has a built-in VESA mounting screws in case you do not want to use the base and mount it on a mounting bracket. First you would need to attach the base to the stand, and then the stand just kind of slides right into the back of the monitor. The stand also has wire gromet built-in for a clean look. At this point you are pretty much good to go. Plug in the power cord and the USB-C cable to your desktop or laptop and get to work. The monitor can also be adjusted to meet your needs. You can adjust the stand to pivot, tilt and swivel in the direction of your choosing.

    1 HDMI Port

    1 Displayport

    1 USB-C Port

    Audio Jack

    2 SS USB-A ports

    1080p Display / 75 Hz refresh rate

    Camera – Let’s start off with the main feature of this laptop and that would be the built-in camera. The monitor has a 5-megapixel IR pop up camera. The camera pops up with a gentle push and can be pushed closed when not in use. I am unsure if Dell is planning on coming up with another model for this, but it would be cool if the camera was automatic, where you can open and close the pop-up camera with a touch of a button. The quality of the camera, in my experience, is not bad but it’s not that great either. I have tested out other 5-megapixel cameras on brands and devices and the picture quality of those cameras was much better compared to Dell. The image quality on Dell video conferencing seemed a bit grainy but not terrible, but on a positive note I did like that fact that the camera mounted on top of the monitor provided a better and a wider angle then compared to a camera on your laptop.

    Noise cancelling microphone - The built-in microphone on the monitor worked well, I had no complains there. The microphone was able to cancel out some of the background noise I had created to check if it would be able to cancel it out and it worked just fine.

    5W Speaker – The speakers on the monitor serve their purpose well. If you are conducting a video call, you can clearly hear the person talking and it sounds just fine But, if you trying to pump some beats through them, they don’t really sound that great. You really can’t expect much from 5W speakers other then the purpose they were designed for, which they perform well.

    USB-C Port – So, this was by far my favorite feature of this monitor. I loved the fact that I could just connect a single cable to the monitor and do it all. I was able to charge my laptop, transfer audio, and data all in a single provided USB-C cable. I am sure this feature probably is not new, but I had seen it for the first time on this monitor and just fell in love. I love that I can connect my laptop to my monitor and charge at the same time. Amazing!!!

    Built-in Low Blue Light Screen – The built- in low blue light screen makes working all day long on a computer so much easier especially if you wear glasses like do. The light and the glare from staring at the monitor does not really make for a good day at work. I really liked how this monitor has that feature built in and its on all the time, so you don’t need to mess with the options to turn it on or off without sacrificing on the display quality.

    PROS:

    USB-C – Multi-purpose port

    Built-in Camera

    Noise Cancelling Microphone

    Speaker (Serve their purpose)

    Built in blue light filter

    CONS:

    Camera – Although its not terrible, but not a fan of the picture quality.

    Manual pop out camera

    Overall, I really like the idea of having everything built-in to the monitor to make my work life easier and this monitor has really done so and while clearing up so much wire clutter from my desk. I am now just using that single cable to connect my laptop to my monitor do what I need to do and if I need to do a video conference call, I can just pop the camera out and get that done. I really like the idea, design and the finish of this monitor and If you are in the market for something that can do it all for you as well, I would suggest giving this monitor a shot.

    Brilliant

    Having not left my office for nearly the last 2 years I can appreciate where this Monitor fits in. Very few laptops have decent cameras. I frequently use MS Teams and Zoom for video conferencing. My office setup is pretty typical a notebook to the side and a larger monitor (or 2) connected to my note book. The larger monitor is usually front and center. Which means for video conferencing I have to look to the right to use my notebooks camera (which I also have to do to use MS Hello to sign on). I've experimented with a seperate external camera and microphone and lighting. But the hassles with all the extra cables to plug in and get/keep setup, and to reconnect when I have to take my notebook with me.... well it's not worth the effort. Enter Dell's new line of video ready monitors; like I said brilliant. Not only a great IPS monitor but a monitor with a very good digital camera, which includes IR sensing so that it can be used with MS Hello to login (Hello requires 2 signals, video for comparison, and IR to make sure is not just a photograph (human heat and depth)).

    The quality is the monitor for 24" is fine for Full HD. The color set up can be adjusted via RGB settings (great if your using it for photo editing, or content creation - you can exactly match the calibration you need). The 75Hz refresh rate insures you can't see any repaint on the screen, and it also prevents screen tearing when gaming. It supports AMD's FreeSync for improve frame stability when gaming. The other hidden big deal i that this monitor has a 5W sound bar built in. The sound quality is really excellent and clear, it seems to come from the sides and the bottom (it won't replace my $1K sound system w/sub), but does an adequate job of providing crisp voices when used in a video conference. It also provides a echo canceling microphone(s) so that the sounds from the monitor do not effect the sound heard on the other end. It does an excellent job of this. I have a $100 dual mic, echo canceling set up that I used with a seperate camera, and the Dell mic set up is every bit as good. This is often over looked when making video calls. The quality of the mic greatly effects the quality of the video call. The only thing that I might have added is some direct diffused lighting, I use a 4" light ring with adjustable color/light output clamped to my desk on a long goose neck. I use it for video calls and for desktop lighting, when doing close-up work.

    The monitor is highly adjustable up/down,right/left. And the monitor can be turned on it's stand so that it can be used in portrait or landscape modes (it's not hard to turn, but you can't do it without using 2 hands). The monitor supports 3 means for connection: HDMI, DP and USB-C. USB-C is fairly new, your computer must support USB-C/DP output. Most notebooks with Thunderbolt/USB-C output or Power Delivery support this. Mid to high end notebooks fro the last 2+ years have offer this. I love this functionality. This Dell monitor also has a USB hub with Power Delivery built in so you can connect a USB device to the monitor (under left side of monitor (I put a little piece of tape on the bottom edge of the monitor so I could find it more easily). I can use it to fast charge my iPhone; very convenient, and it can be disabled to save energy from the setup menu.

    The display quality and off angle viewing of this monitor is excellent, watching video on the monitor is very good when at least 16-18" from the monitor. Any closer and you can see the pixel array onscreen. The 24" is full HD (the 27" DZ monitor is QHD). One feature that is not supported is HDR/HDR10. The only time you would miss this is when watching Movie's that support this. It is something I look for, but in testing the HD set up in Windows 11, it was hard to see how the output could be improved (once the brightness and contrast were turned down from their defaut 75% settings). These settings are fine for a bright room but for viewing movies I found 40%/50% to provide better cleaner shades of grey and blacks.

    For a 24" HD monitor it is excellent. I suspect the 27" QHD is more in line with state of the art. But not all workspaces are alike. Because I have 2 monitors on my desk, I really can't fit 2 27" monitors, but 2 24" plus the notebook fit comfortably. I also found the USB power deliver output under the monitor was sufficient to charge/power my notebook, one less power cord to my desk - cool.

    I'm proud to have this monitor on my desk. I've been asked by several clients, what I'm using, as they can tell it's an improvement from just using my notebook. Dell once again has produced an excellent product, and push the camera down and you know your not going to be spied upon!

    Dell Declutters the Work From Home Setup

    Dell’s latest 24” full high definition (FHD) 1920 x 1080 monitor integrates a webcam, noise cancelling microphone, speakers, power delivery, and usb connections all in a single monitor to make a clutter free workspace. I have a small table at home that I use for work, so the compact size of the 24” monitor doesn’t take up much table space. And with the super thin bezel along the sides and the top, it feels larger than 24 inches. I also like that the monitor can tilt, swivel, and be raised up and down for the best viewing ergonomics. As an added bonus, I can rotate it 90 degrees into portrait mode which is great for providing a much greater view of the list of emails in my inbox and for reading long paragraphs of text. Not many monitors nowadays can boast having the ability to tilt, swivel, adjust height, and swing into portrait mode. Well done Dell!

    While I like the vividness of glossy displays, I really enjoy the anti glare matte display on the Dell monitor. My workstation is set up such that I constantly get the reflection and glare from my window and lights. I’ve used glossy displays in the past, but had to frequently move my head around to see the screen due to all the reflection and glare. Now, I only consider screens with anti glare properties.

    There are plenty of options for connecting the monitor to your computer. There is an HDMI 1.4 port, Display port 1.2, and a usb-c port. However, connecting via the usb-c port will allow the greatest use of the monitor. With a single usb-c cable, it will provide power delivery up to 65 watts to your laptop along with video, audio, and data. Rounding out the other ports, there is a 3.5mm audio out jack, and two usb 3.2 Gen 1 ports, one of which can provide up to 2A of charge for devices such as cellphones. Did you catch what is missing? There is no LAN network connection on the Dell 24”. You’ll need to look at other monitors for that if you want to hardwire into your network.

    Dell also did a great job with a well-thought out webcam design. It’s a pop-up style webcam that can be pushed down away from view to ensure both full privacy and avoid any unintentional mishaps. The webcam can be used with Windows Hello for face recognition login. It does a decent job with video. It’s crisp and clear when there is plenty of light, but gets a bit grainy in lower light conditions. It’s quite a bit better than my laptop’s built-in 720p webcam. The noise cancelling microphone on the Dell monitor also works well. I used it throughout the week for several video conference work meetings, and my meeting participants all heard me loud and clear even when the gardeners were mowing the lawn next to my open window.

    The integrated 2 x 5 watt speakers are well tuned for voices for video conferencing but leaves much to be desired if you’re planning to use them for entertainment purposes. Using the speakers for music and movies was disappointing. There are adjustments on the menu for different audio profiles (standard, voice, music, movies, games), but none of them really made much of a difference. Audio enthusiasts should keep their external speakers close by.

    The display menu is easy to access from the buttons on the lower right hand edge of the monitor. There are plenty of options to adjust color, brightness, contrast, etc. One feature from the menu that I want to highlight is the option to allow the laptop to continue charging from the connected usb-c cable even when the monitor is turned off.

    Something to take note of, the 65 watt power delivery may not be sufficient for your laptop. Some of the current laptops need more than 65 watts of input power for optimal performance. I’m using a Dell XPS 15” and with the power delivery from the usb-c cable plugged in from the monitor, I get a warning notification on my laptop that it is still receiving charge, but not charging optimally.

    Finally, it’s not entirely a plug and play set up. When you plug in the usb-c cable, you may need to go into your laptop’s settings to enable it to use the external monitor’s webcam, microphone, and speakers. Otherwise, you might encounter a situation where you are using the Dell monitor’s webcam, but the laptop’s microphone is being used instead of the Dell noise cancelling microphone or the audio is coming out of your laptop’s speakers instead of the speakers from the monitor.

    In summary, I think Dell developed a useful video conference monitor that the work from home professional will appreciate. It has the critical video conference features such as a pop-up webcam with noise cancelling microphone along with speakers tuned for clear dialogue. Connecting the monitor using a single usb-c cable also provides a clutter free set up. Rotating the monitor into portrait mode is a big plus for those needing to view column-type content such as paragraphs of text. Dell packed a lot of outstanding and useful features into the monitor, making it one of the standouts in a crowded field of monitors.

    Must have for Video Calls

    Doing video calls can be such a hassle especially if you are collaborating with the caller at the same time. Dell’s S2422 HZ monitor eliminates those hassles whether you are using a desktop or a laptop. This monitor was designed around and excels at video conferencing.

    Features: The display is an IPS panel which supports FHD 1920 x 1080 with a refresh rate up to 75 hz. It has a 1000:1 contrast ratio and a 4ms response time which is great for general use. The monitor has the typical Dell stand which gives you total control over the display height and angle. There is a 5 MP IR webcam with a 2560 x 1920 resolution at 30 frames per second that is built into the top of the monitor and it is retractable. To use the webcam you just push down on the top panel to release it and it raises up above the center of the display. To store the webcam you just push the webcam down until it locks into place again. This is a great feature because there is no confusion as whether the webcam is on or not since its concealed when not in use. The webcam has IR capability which helps for video calls when the overhead lighting isn’t very bright. There is a small white LED IR indicator that comes on next to the lens when the IR webcam is working. The monitor has two 5 watt speakers that are down firing. Because the speakers are built into the monitor and face downward the monitor has some depth to it towards the bottom of the display. The audio quality is good enough for video calls and above the quality of the typical laptop speakers. At the top of the monitor there are built in microphones that have noise cancelling capabilities. Note that you need to make sure the microphones are correctly set up to get the benefit of the noise cancellation. The Dell user manual explains this in detail.

    Setup: There are several ways to connect this monitor to a laptop or pc. You can use the supplied USB-C cable if your computer supports USB-C otherwise you will need a HDMI or Display Port cable. The HDMI or Display port cable will support the audio as well as the video to the monitor but you will need to also connect a USB cable between the monitor and computer to get the webcam operational. I tested mine with using the USB-C cable as well as using a HDMI with an USB-A cable and both scenarios were plug and play with my laptop. The Dell user manual explains the possible connections in detail so its worth downloading it. On the back of the monitor there is a HDMI port, Full size Display Port, USB-C with 65 watt charging capabilities, audio out jack and a USB-A port which can charge a phone. Note both USB ports are version 3.2. To set up the monitor there are four selector buttons and an on/off switch on the bottom of the right side of the monitor. While having the buttons on the bottom allows you to mount multiple monitors edge-to-edge it also makes it more difficult to operate them. Why Dell doesn’t put these buttons on the front of the monitor is beyond reason! The default functions for the buttons are Mute, Preset Display mode, Menu, and select. Via the menu button you can fully personalize the monitor and all its functions. You can also download Dell’s Display Monitor app which gives you like functionality without having to hunt and peck at the little buttons on the bottom of the display. Once I had the monitor cabled, I checked out the monitors performance using the Eizo monitor test. The panel was perfect with no pixel issues and the colors and gray scales were uniform across the panel. Basically the image quality is what you expect from a quality monitor. Next I tested the webcam capabilities and I found the image quality from the camera to be acceptable. I did not perceive any choppiness when moving around in the image so the 30 frames per second was sufficient to provide smooth video. The noise cancellation was helpful but this won’t mute out a barking dog on a conference call. Overall I liked the monitor and it is well designed for its purpose of supporting video calls.

    Monitor connections done right

    This is an excellent monitor for working from home.

    Nice and bright screen: IPS display with anti-glare coating. It can get very bright and it's comfortable to watch.

    The screen is a fairly standard full HD 1920x1040, 16:9, and 24".

    The design of the monitor is very good. The overall design is typical Dell, and in a good way, they know what they're doing: Bezels are very thin. The bottom border is thicker but still very compact. The base is the block of plastic painted silver that's one come to expect from Dell. I don't particularly appreciate plastic pretending to be metal, but looks fine. The back is a really nice patterned cream color that's nice if it gets exposed. The arm is very solid: The monitor can be lifted up and down, with ample movement and can also rotate 90 deg. Very stable arm. I appreciate it. Putting the base together is a cinch with not tools required and the arm snaps into the monitor. It can be released with a concealed button in the back, and it conceals a VESA mount. It even comes with the appropriate screws, that remain hidden when using the stand provided. Excellent design here.

    Where this monitor really shines is connectivity: 1 USB-C, 1 DisplayPort, 1 HDMI.

    It has a built-in 1080p camera with IR (Works with Windows Hello), microphone array and speakers.

    The camera is concealed. It works exactly like the All-in-One Inspirion series from Dell: Push the top of the screen and the camera pops up. Pop it inside the monitor when not in use.

    The camera and mic works with the USB-C connection. Speakers also work with the DisplayPort and HDMI connections.

    The power supply is part of the monitor: No power brick, it uses a standard (removable) power cable. The monitor also comes with an USB-C cable which also charges the computer, and that's where it makes a huge difference: Single power cable for both the monitor and a laptop. Single connection from the laptop, doesn’t get any simpler.

    The monitor also has two USB-A 3.0 outputs: One on the back next to the other connections, and one on the bottom bezel: Ideal for an USB-C stick when needed. These works when using the USB-C connection.

    Speaker: When connecting the computer the first time via USB-C, it recognizes two outputs: One via the video connection and one via USB-C. Both sound good. When selecting the USB audio, the volume can be controlled from the computer.

    Power delivery: The monitor can also charge devices via the USB-A ports in addition to the USB-C. Power delivery settings can be configured from the monitor's menu, independently between USB-A and USB-C.

    Controls: Settings and shortcuts are accessible via concealed buttons on the bottom bezel. An on-screen menu that's aligned with the button comes up when pressing them. The camera and mics can be completely disabled from the menu.

    This monitor is not just for windows computers:

    • MacBook recognized everything, and the camera worked just as well, with better resolution and clearer than the built-in camera (macOS does not use the IR cameras however).

    • Chromebook also worked just fine, and recognized the camera (Tested it with Zoom).

    Also this monitor supports AMD FreeSync.

    Overall I really like this. Ideal for working from home with the built-in camera that also focuses on privacy. It eliminates a lot of clutter with a single connection to the computer.

    Monitor and USB-C Hub in one

    ## Features

    Probably the standout feature for this monitor is the fact that it basically has the functionality of a USB-C hub built into it! With just one USB-C cable (included), you can connect this monitor to a compatible laptop in order to:

    - Extend the display to this monitor

    - Charge your laptop

    - Add a Windows Hello-compatible webcam and microphone

    - Add speakers (built-in to this Dell monitor)

    - Add two USB devices (such as a keyboard or mouse) using the 2 USB ports on the monitor

    This is extremely convenient for hybrid work and learning from home, as when you want to work from home, you can simply connect the USB-C cable to your (hopefully) compatible work laptop and get a full desktop experience. Then if your significant other or child needs to connect their (hopefully) compatible laptop to work at the same desk, swapping is just a matter of unplugging the USB-C cable from one laptop and plugging in the next.

    So which computers are compatible? You’ll probably need to Google the technical specs of your laptop to see if it supports DisplayPort 1.2 via USB-C. Most modern Dell laptops with a USB-C port seem to work, but there is no rule that states that a manufacturer must support DisplayPort if they include a USB-C port on a machine.

    The USB-C cable also supports charging via the Power Delivery standard up to 65 watts. Even if your laptop came with a more powerful charger (such as a 100-watt charger), it might still accept a smaller charge over USB-C at a slower rate. Again, you may need to Google the specs of your laptop because there is no definite rule that a USB-C port must support charging.

    ## Performance

    The display on this monitor is vivid and clear and both photos and movies look great on it. The IPS panel allows the display to look sharp even when it is at an angle. And the monitor can be set to a low 4ms refresh rate for casual gaming. Just note that this is not a 4K monitor as it maxes out at a 1080 resolution.

    I tested this monitor with the Dell G15 gaming laptop (which came with a 100-watt charger) and although it didn’t seem to indicate that it was charging, it seemed to discharge at a slower rate. The display, camera, and USB devices connected to the monitor all worked correctly regardless. Testing this monitor with the new Surface Pro 8 tablet produced similar results and did indeed activate the charging indicator in Windows.

    The built-in webcam can be lowered into the monitor for privacy when not in use. When you’re ready to make a video call, simply press down on it to pop it up. The video quality is great in bright lighting conditions but does become very grainy in low light. If you have a relatively dark home office, you may need to add a light ring to your setup to get the best picture quality.

    The speakers are fine for online meetings, but they can sound tinny and are not great for music due to their lack of bass.

    ## Summary

    Although this monitor is pricier than many other 24-inch monitors, it does include a USB-C hub and Windows Hello hardware that could cost a couple hundred extra if purchased separately. The display, charging, webcam, and USB ports work great, but you’ll need to make sure your laptop supports DisplayPort and Power Delivery via USB-C in order to take advantage of all of the features.

    Excellent monitor and features-- gotta have!

    If you are looking for a monitor that is easy to assemble, has every type connection you may need (USB-C, HMDI, DP) to hook it to your laptop, has an easy-to hide camera, mic and great speakers, well, this is the monitor you need!

    My employer recently issued laptops to everyone so that we can be super functional in the office, at home, or on the go. At work, I have a nice docking station, but needed something at home that I could use for work and for personal. This monitor, well, calling it a monitor is not that descriptive!, connects me to everything I need with one USB-C cable.... It includes a good camera which pops up at the top of the screen and goes down for privacy, mic and great speakers, PLUS you can attach usb devices like externat hard drives, etc. I can join a video conference with nor worries and no cables everywhere, just that one usb-C, which is also charging my laptop! When I want to switch laptops, it's unplug from one and plug into the other. marvelous!!!

    Now, taking it out of the box and attaching the stand was a snap. just hand tighten the wingnut to add the base to the stand, then pop the stand into the back of the monitor. This monitor has a good heft and weight, so it is very stable (which is great with the camera). The screen can be vertical or horizontal -- just be certain you have it high enough so it doesn't hit the table when you flip it! ). It also moves side-to-side and tilts. Controls are easy to access in the lower bottom right edge of the monitor. Again, it is so much more than a monitor-- is likes a super monitor!

    Anyone who hates to fuss with lots of cables but wants a bigger monitor with the laptop will love this Dell Video Conferencing Monitor. And it's Dell Quality, of course!

    Excellent work station monitor

    This is an excellent work station monitor. This monitor has a lot of things going for it. It's super simple to setup out of the box, but it only comes with a usb-c cable, so be sure that your port can handle video, or you're going to need either an hdmi or displayport cord. It has a web cam, microphone and built in speakers, which is perfect for video chats, or online meetings. Picture quality is great, and it has several options to tailor the picture as well. It's 75hz capable refresh rate makes it a decent gaming monitor too. Only issue I have with it is that it has a slight backlight bleed through. Overall it's an excellent monitor.

    Likes:

    1.) Great picture with ability to customize

    2.) Built in web camera and microphone

    3.) 75hz refresh rate for gaming

    Dislikes:

    1.) Backlight bleed through

    2.) Sound = meh

    3.) Only includes USB-C cable

    Great monitor and TV

    I bought this as one of my two desktop

    monitors. The other is a 43” Asus. The LG is brighter with better colors, but I did get the Asus to almost replicate it, but if LG had a 43 inch monitor at the time, I would have purchased that instead after seeing these two side by side. The off switch is a little funky to switch off, but it works on the first try most of the time.

    Great monitor at all resolutions

    I was wondering if I had to upgrade my video card. Luckily the card had all the features needed. But the monitor would have functioned fine without them. I had to turn the brightness down when not viewing movies. Overall, I extremely pleased with the quality of the monitor. I was able to adjust the monitor exactly at the correct level for viewing because it not only swiveled it had a height adjustment also. I've only owned it for a month but everything is great so far.

    Great monitor! Love it!

    Really great monitor, works perfectly and I am able to play games with no issues. I even bought an open box product for a discount and its in great condition. The only thing I don't like about it is that you have to change the brightness/settings with the power button, you tilt the button up, down, left and right to control the menu. Its a little weird, but not really an issue.

    Great monitor.

    Great monitor runs at 144hz as advertised, however, The 24inch is NOT vesa compatible. Meaning you can not purchase a monitor stand for a dual monitor experience. Customer service tried their best to sweep it under the rug and it is almost a deal breaker. Luckily I had enough space on my desk to have both laid out on the not-so attractive stand. can’t even purchase a Vesa adapter because of the curved monitor. Back to the monitor, this a high quality perfect starter monitor that I highly suggest.

    Monitor is OK, except for some dark areas

    Only mildly happy with this monitor. There are dark splotches that run down both sides of the monitor, about an inch wide...only noticeable on white pages, but still...not good. I'm sitting directly in front of the center of the monitor, and the dark areas are still very visible. Not sure if it's worth the trouble to return and replace...the next one might be the same...or worse.

    Very Nice IPS Monitor

    I primarily own monitors with 24” VA or TN panels with high refresh rates for gaming. I also own a couple of 27” IPS 1440p monitors also with high refresh rates catered for gaming. What I don’t own is a monitor that produces high color accuracy and detail for normal viewing cases such as photography, movies and anything else that doesn’t really need 144+hz of refresh. So the ASUS ProArt PA279CV 4k monitor is a great median for standard viewing and 4k gaming, I would say. I’m not a professional photographer, videographer nor graphic designer; I’m actually a software developer who does use 4k monitors at work, and I’d love to have one of these for @ home use.

    First Impressions:

    THe PA279CV has the semblance of many monitors offered today, with thin bezels on top and on the sides, and a bit of a chin to round it out. The monitor controls are actually in front of you as opposed to underneath the chin. I think much of the chin could have been lessened if the controls were tucked underneath. Also on the chin is an imprinted ruler that spans across the entire bottom to coincide with the built-in QuickFit overlay that will allow you to see an actual size of your creation. The entire monitor is plastic to protect the internals and the stand is a hefty metal base with gray plastic to cover it. With the stand attached, this has to be the heaviest 27” monitor I have ever owned.

    Usage:

    The PA279CV accepts the following I/O --

    DisplayPort over USB-C x 1

    DisplayPort 1.2 x 1

    HDMI(v2.0) x 2

    USB Hub : 4 ports USB 3.1

    Earphone Jack

    The monitor can be raised or lowered, swiveled and tilted, and changed from landscape to portrait, all on it’s original stand. If I had a pair of these monitors, I would have one landscape and the other portrait, side by side.

    I tried both DP1.2(PC) as well as HDMI2.0(gaming console) for display input, and I was also able to utilize the USB-C connection on my PC to activate the available USB3.1 ports. I didn’t have a means of driving video over USB-C during this review.

    Performance:

    Out of the box, I immediately saw the differences between this monitor and my gaming monitors; photos on the gaming monitors are very washed out, but on this monitor it is totally opposite. Photos appear slightly on the warm side, but this is probably because I’ve been so used to having my monitors’ settings on the cool side. There are several ProArt color gamut presets, but enabling HDR from within the Windows 10 Display settings locks the monitor to HDR. Outside of HDR, you’re free to change the settings that suit your needs. For me, HDR was the best balance of contrast and brightness, entrusting Calman with their color accuracy. I’m definitely not an expert in terms of color accuracy nor familiar with the specific color gamuts, but my eyes are definitely seeing a difference via the “seat-of-the-pants” approach. 4k just looks gorgeous on this monitor.

    Gaming:

    Although the refresh rate is 60hz, it does support variable frame refresh between 40hz and 60hz. Many might think that’s a bit low of a refresh, especially for 4k HDR gaming, but I actually think otherwise; the gaming consoles and gpus of today are still trying to keep up with 60hz even as they push the 120hz initiative.

    Issues:

    Black level uniformity is not great. There are hot spots on every corner of the monitor and can get very distracting. Honestly, I don’t know why it’s the case. I’m viewing the monitor in a dark room and can clearly see the hot spots. My other 1440p gaming monitors’ black uniformity is much better. If dark images, videos or anything dark is your thing, this might bother you a lot. I docked a star here.

    Overall, this is a great monitor in my book.

    Worth it if you need accuracy

    I’ve done a ton of research on monitors over the last 2 months trying to find the right one. Please remember this is just my opinions.

    Situation: I am a graphic/web design student and manage a website professionally for a major organization, I do have some financial freedoms, this monitor is not cheap and not needed for students but a huge bonus to have.

    I originally was looking for an ultra-wide (45”+). However, if you need color/image accuracy, bigger is worse. There is no right size but 24-32” is a good range. I went with the 27” which is perfect for my design, I run a 2nd monitor for my other programs through my work computer, it’s not ideal for “non-technical designers”. If you want a big screen for multi-tasking and other stuff, don’t spend the money on this. If you are looking for color/image accuracy, I think you found what you are looking for.

    System: I am running a 2020 M1 Mac Air w/ 16g ram, connection is through the usb-c port (touch on that later).

    Projects completed: I recently finished up some work and have completed about 3 illustrator projects and 5 photoshop projects since my purchase. I was working off my 13” screen and an HDMI connected 27” Acer. When I opened a few projects I had been working, I ended up changing all of my colors that weren’t part of the style guides, man was it off on the Acer.

    This Asus has everything a designer needs. RGB and CYMK are both very accurate, the cymk is not perfect but, you are looking at print colors on a screen. 4K is beautiful. I did hook up my Xbox series s and it looks good but doesn’t have frame rate needed so meh there but like I said, this is a monitor for designers. Movies play great through both HDMI, DP, and USB-C. I am still trying to get used to the board in this monitor charging my computer and other devices, It acts as a connection hub. Basically, this monitor hit every need.

    However…….

    If you plan on using usb-c connections (recommended), you will need to be a little tech savvy. These monitors do not work from the manufacturer with Apple. They just don’t. But. You can go to the asus website, download the firmware and drivers, install the drivers through commander, then move firmware to a thumb drive, plug it in to a usb 2.0, hit a sequence of monitor buttons which opens the hardware up for service. You run the file on the thumb drive through the monitor and then boom, it works. I typed this all out because it seemed daunting, but I was a first time to by following the directions step by step. Now, if you are looking at a monitor like this, you probably have the capacity to do what I just described, it’s worth it and will work fine with HDMI/DP until you do this. It seems like a big deal and I wish they did this at the factory but I know more about my monitor and how to troubleshoot it locally as opposed to shipping it back, waiting, and possibly being denied. It’s a pain in the butt but trust me, it’s totally worth the 15min it took.

    Overall, I’m very satisfied and would recommend this to designers/artists (digital). I would not recommend it to anyone outside of that field. If you are a student on a budget, you’ll get there eventually and be just fine.

    Color accurate 4K panel that is also a dock!

    The Asus PA279CV monitor… a truly great monitor for color accurate workflows. Out of the box, you get the following:

    - monitor (4K HDR, 3840 x 2160 resolution)

    - base stand

    - arm (connects monitor to base)

    - power cable

    - DisplayPort cable

    - USB Type C cable

    - HDMI cable

    - quick start guide to setting up

    In terms of port selection, the monitor provides:

    - 2x HDMI 2.0 ports (capable of 4K 60FPS)

    - DisplayPort port (capable of 4K 60FPS)

    - USB Type C port (capable of powering devices up to 65W + 4K 60FPS)

    - 3.5mm headphone port

    - 4 USB Type A ports (these ports are functional when connected via USB Type C, acting as a hub/dock)

    Setting up the monitor is quite easy. You can get away without using the quick start guide if you know how to plug cables in. One thing to note is that next to the power input is a power switch — for me it was in the “off” position, and because i didn’t look under the monitor initially when plugging in the power cord, i missed it… This lead me to not be able to power on the monitor from the front facing interface button and lead me to believe the monitor was dead on arrival (i was able to swap out the power cable with others i had to deduce this). Upon closer inspection, i finally saw the power switch and toggled it to the “on” position, and from there i was able to power on the monitor with the front facing power button. After that debacle, there were no other issues with setup and i was able to connect the monitor to my laptop, desktop, and gaming consoles.

    Connection of choice for me was via USB Type C. The main reason for this is because i have a MacBook Pro 16”, MacBook Air M1, and a Dell XPS 13. Connecting via USB Type C, i was able to charge each device and utilize the USB Type-A ports of the monitor to connect my peripherals (e.g., mouse, thumb drive, etc.). When viewing the power settings on my MacBook Pro & MacBook Air (via System Information > Power), i see the monitor is providing 65W, which matches the 20V x 3.25A listing of the port. This is great for my lower powered devices but not so much for my MacBook Pro 16” especially if i’m running computationally expensive software which will drain the battery faster than it is being charged from the monitor. Please note, i did see user “spezaled" mention that his MacBook Pro was not able to be powered by the monitor, but this was not the case for me as i was able to connect and power up two separate MacBook devices. Aside from that, the DisplayPort & HDMI ports work as expected and i am able to connect to my desktop & gaming consoles to achieve 4K 60FPS.

    Colors on this monitor are very good. I am not a photographer or designer, however based off of comparisons to my other 4K monitors (e.g, LG 27UL600-W and HP U27), the Asus takes the cake with its color reproduction. By default, there are many color presets provided for different viewing experiences and if those don’t suite you, ProArt Palette can be used to manually set the color profile via the monitor settings.

    The inbuilt speakers are decent, but do not expect much from them. They clearly lack in bass and mids. The speakers from my MacBook M1 Air and Dell XPS 13 clearly blow it out of the park, but if you are simply listening to audio books or podcasts, they will suffice given you don’t have too much ambient noise. This isn’t really a dealbreaker for me though since i typically use bluetooth headphones or dedicated speakers but i did want to bring it up in case it could be a concern for other users interested in purchasing this monitor.

    Overall, i would say this is a feature full monitor and is certainly worth it’s asking price. I really love the fact that it is a USB Type-C monitor, in that it can also act as a charging dock for both my Windows & Mac laptops. I highly recommend this for anyone that requires a color accurate panel and dock!

    A high quality and high resolution monitor

    Verdict. I love the size and image quality of this monitor. The connection options provide fantastic convenience and versatility. It is the best monitor I have owned.

    First impression. All components provide a feel of high quality, including the provided cables. Of note, I very much appreciate that the monitor comes with three different cables (USB-C, HDMI, and Display Port). Assembly was intuitive and easy. The upper and side bezels are very thin. The stand adds to the footprint of the monitor but the added functionality of being able to raise/lower the screen, and move it to portrait, makes it worth. The base of the monitor is quite large, but I don’t mind because I can organize pens and post-its there.

    Image quality. I am using this monitor with an Omen gaming laptop with an RTX 2070 card. The image quality is fantastic! While I can’t verify that I am getting full 4k 3840 x 2160, I am completely happy with my current resolution results. I am also very pleased with the colors; they are bright and vibrant. I can easily tell the difference between my cheap monitor and this Asus monitor on the color and brightness, even to the point where I want to get another one of these so the colors and brightness match. Right now, I am not using this monitor for gaming because I love using it in portrait mode for work tasks, so can’t evaluate its gaming performance.

    Features. I love that this monitor has connectivity options for USB-C, Display port, and HDMI. The monitor also has USB ports in the back of the monitor that are very convenient for charging earphones, mouse, and keyboard. The monitor has integrated speakers but they are just ok. My Omen Laptop speakers are better, but in a pinch, the monitor speakers are nice to have. I like the menu implementation: the physical buttons are easy to use, navigation through the menu is nice, and the presets are great.

    What I love.

    - Great resolution

    - Great brightness and colors

    - Thin bezels

    - Fantastic stand; I love the ability to raise or lower the height of the monitor, and to easily be able to rotate to portrait mode

    - Useful menu presets

    - High quality monitor and accessories; it’s the best monitor I have owned

    What I don’t love.

    - The monitor has a big footprint, it may not work for everyone depending on your desk space

    Conclusion.

    Amazing monitor: fantastic resolution, color, brightness, and performance. This ASUS monitor is not cheap but if you are looking for a capable and versatile 27” 4k monitor, this is a great option.

    An excellent addition to the ProArt Line!

    The Asus PA279CV – 27” 4K IPS Monitor is an excellent addition to the Asus ProArt line of monitors that are oriented at Professional Monitor needs including Photography, Filmmaking & Video Editing, Animation & Game Development, Architecture & Engineering, Product Design & Manufacturing, and Graphics & Art. As a user of 3 ProArt monitors for the last 11 years that are still going strong - yes that is correct the same monitors for the last 11 years - I was extremely pleased to have an opportunity to review this new addition to the series.

    This review will be done in 3 parts – key features and specifications, usage impressions, and pros/cons:

    Key Features:

    The key features of this monitor are excellent. The basic features are as follows this is a 27”, 4K (3840x2160) IPS monitor with 1x DisplayPort v1.2, 2 x HDMI (v 2.0), and 1x USB-C inputs with a 178° viewing angle and a 16:9 ratio. Other specifications of interest include:

    • International color standard 100% sRGB and 100% Rec. 709 wide color gamut

    • Calman Verified with factory calibrated for excellent Delta E < 2 color accuracy

    • Extensive connectivity including DP over USB-C with 65W Power Delivery, DisplayPort, HDMI, USB hub with 4 downstream ports.

    • Adaptive-Sync technology (40~60Hz) to animated content with fast action and eliminate screen tearing

    • ASUS-exclusive ProArt Preset and ProArt Palette provide numerous adjustable color parameters.

    • Ergonomic design with +35° ~ -5° tilt, ±45° swivel, ±90° pivot and 150mm height adjustments for a comfortable viewing experience

    • The monitor also has 2Wx2 speakers

    Included with the monitor are the stand, power cable, DisplayPort cable, HDMI cable, USB-C cable, the color pre-calibration report, a Warranty card, and a welcome card. The monitor weighs in at 18.9598 pounds with the included stand and 12.5663 pounds without it and has VESA 100 x 100 mm mounting capabilities.

    Usage Impressions:

    This unit is easy to use, and the only setup is to attach the stand and cables. Once connected the device is easily recognized by the operating system. The screen itself is gorgeous and watching 4K video is amazingly crisp and clean with vibrant colors and the darkest of darks with no notifiable issues for contrasting areas. The stand mount has an extremely useful swivel feature on it allowing the monitor to be rotated without having to rotate the stand. The stand and the VESA 100 mounting bracket allow for this monitor to be configured in multiple ways to allow for the best use case, including with the use of monitor arms.

    The fact that this monitor continues the long tradition of ProArt Monitors having multiple inputs, allows for one to connect the device to a wide array of inputs. In my existing setup, I have been able to configure the setup to handle inputs from my Tower, My work laptop, and my personal laptop via the multiple inputs available. I see no reason why I cannot continue to do this with the new monitor, albeit using different ports. The multiple input feature also allows one to set up the screen in either a Picture-in-Picture or a Picture-By-Picture Mode, with the latter allows up to four inputs.

    The other features available in the On-Screen Display (OSD) menu include:

    • ProArt Preset – Offering various modes of use including Standard Mode, sRGB, Rec. 709, DCI-P3, HDR, Scenery, Reading, Darkroom, and Rapid rendering modes. It also allows for 2 user-specified modes.

    • Blue Light Filter – this allows one to adjust the amount of Blue light emitted from the panel. Level 4 is optimized and is compliant with the TUV low Blue Light Certification and in this mode the Brightness function is disabled.

    • ProArtPalette – is for managing the Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, Hue, Color Temperature, Gamma, Black Level, Color, and has a Color Reset capability.

    • Image – allowing one to adjust the Sharpness, Trace Free, Aspect Control, and ASCR capabilities.

    • Sound – You can adjust Volume, Mute, and Source for Audio

    • PIP/PBP Setting – as discussed above

    • Input Select – to Select the source for input including auto Detection

    • System Setup – Language settings, System Information and All Reset (return to factory default)

    • Shortcut – Used to create two shortcut keys for brightness, contrast, input select, Color temp., Volume, QuickFit, GamePlus Rest Reminder, Color Augmentation, and set as a shortcut key.

    Overall, the Asus PA279CV – 27” 4K IPS Monitor is a wonderful high-quality monitor with a lot of features that can aid the user in all aspects of their needs for a monitor.

    Pros: Picture Quality, Number of available inputs, PBP/PIP functionality, Available modes

    Cons: The USB hub requires the use of the USB-C upstream port which is not available on all machines (but cab be rectified via an adapter or add-on card.)

    Solid Performance

    This is a gorgeous 4K display, calibrated out of the box, and a cinch to set up. The monitor took some adjustment on my part to get accustomed to. The native resolution of 3840 X 2160 is 4K and then some. Scaled to 120 per cent on the desktop as recommended by Windows 10, text is quite crisp and readable, but tiny. That annoyance is easily adjusted. I have this display set up next to a 24-inch monitor which it has supplanted. I am enjoying the extended desktop. My other monitor, adjusted by eye only, had a bluish cast to the whites, and the Asus appeared relatively warmer. I trust the calibrated Asus.

    The non-reflective screen has been a joy to use. I have the monitors set up at my office desk. Given the way I have been using the Asus so far, its beautiful resolution is overkill. Its video inputs feature two HDMI inputs, a USB-C input, and a Display Port input. The monitor comes with a USB-C cable, tagged to be USB 3.1 compliant, an HDMI cable, and a Display Port cable. My Lenovo ThinkCentre M90n1 with an i5-8265U processor and Intel UHD Graphics 620 was able to output HDR under Windows 10 into the Asus, and it looked fantastic. I had to connect it with the supplied Display Port cable. I was not able to get video to pass through the USB-C cable from the Lenovo into the Asus unless I used a USB-C to HDMI dongle (not supplied), leading me to think the supplied USB-C cable may have been at fault.

    I had the monitor up and running in less than 15 minutes out of the box. No tools are required to attach the monitor panel to the base, which is replete with the video input options mentioned, all speced to be capable of displaying 4K HDR resolution at 60 fps. In addition, there is a headphone jack (3.5mm) and four USB-A 3.1 ports which operate off the USB-C input, the Asus acting as a hub, also passing along power to connected devices, such as laptops, which need it to recharge batteries.

    I was startled to hear audio out of the monitor. The Asus does have speakers which are passable, and they are a convenience to have if outboard speakers are not available.

    This is a fine monitor and will serve my needs for some time to come. I am not a gamer or into production graphics or video. I will use the Asus occasionally to touch up photographs and consume media, in addition to its regular office work.

    Love the versatility!

    I am very impressed with the number of features built into this monitor. It allows for multiple devices to be plugged in and viewed on the screen (if you want), while simultaneously charging ones plugged in via the USB ports. (It even comes with one hdmi cable and one display port cable.) The monitor setting options are vast, and I appreciate that you can save multiple setups to switch between depending on what you’re viewing or working on.

    The size of the screen is perfect for me, a nice upgrade from my 15.6” laptop. As someone who does photography for a hobby, I am very impressed with crispness and accuracy of the colors as well. In dual monitor setup with my laptop, I was easily able to closely match the brightness and colors so there was not a distracting difference between the two screens, besides the screen sizes.

    The stand itself is very sturdy, with a heavy base to prevent it from tipping over when adjusting the screen position. I immensely appreciate the wide range of motion that the stand allows for too.

    The built-in speakers were surprisingly half-decent. Obviously, they’re limited in sound quality, but I was pleasantly surprised with how loud they are.

    One cool thing I discovered with my android phone, is that when plugged into this monitor it has a desktop mode option. When activated, it basically turns the phone’s output into a normal computer screen on the monitor. Then, with a wireless mouse plugged into a USB port on the monitor, everything automatically synched together so I could navigate my phone’s desktop with the mouse.

    Overall, I’m very impressed with this monitor. I really wished I had it when I was working from home, but I am most excited to have it for editing photos. If I was just using this for basic work-related functions, then I’m not sure this high quality of a monitor would be necessary, but for photo editing purposes, I think this is a worthy investment.

    Stunning, True Color Monitor

    The ASUS ProArt display impresses with its vibrant and rich colors. Made specially designed for artists or people who do graphic design, the colorful display can be of use to a wide range of people, notably those who do photography, video and even AutoCAD.

    Setup is easy once out of the box. The ProArt has the option to choose from USB C, DisplayPort, and HDMI as video sources and further allows 65W charging from the USB C port as well. What I really liked was that all cables were included for each input including the USB-C cable. Thanks Asus! Auto source recognition made it easy to plug in the monitor and begin using it quickly after connecting it to my laptop.

    The ProArt is unlike any other monitor I've used or seen, having features like blue light reduction beneficial for me,, and features for work like color presets. Having multiple presets like sRGB, Rec.709, and DCI-P3 also made it easier to adjust to the color gamut I prefer. Even with the standard preset on, wow, colors appear beautiful and natural. Asus went further in their setup and included certificates showing Calman verification (used to verify color accuracy), TUV low blue light filter, TUV flicker free technology, and a pre-calibration color report. The monitor also touts 100% sRGB, 100% Rec. 709, a 4K HDR10, 60Hz, 5ms, IPS panel, with a max brightness of 350 nits (enough to view what you'd like in a well lit room). This is all to say in simple terms that the monitor is bright and will produce colors and shades of colors accurately. When in use, I could see natural colors vividly within photoshop projects and as they were exported in the quality I liked.

    Another feature that wowed me was the tilt and pivot the monitor has. You can swivel to the left and right 45 degrees, plus are able to pivot 90 degrees (from horizontal to vertical position). The pivot feature is perfect when trying to get a better look at pictures or art in portrait mode. Finally, the internal speakers included in the monitor are pretty good quality. The sound can get loud enough for when watching movies or videos to hear peoples' voices and does not crack at 100%. It is a nice addition speakers were included.

    Overall, this is a great monitor for those wanting a monitor that shows vivid, true colors and not a display with washed or oversaturated colors and hues. I recommend it if you are looking for something to use for photoshop, video editing, or simply want an amazing looking display.

    Perfect Monitor

    I have been using this item from the day I picked it up. It has been great. You can never go wrong with a Samsung product! The price was excellent and I felt like I got a great deal - I just wished I purchased 2 so I could have two of the same size but it’s actually not be necessary- I only need the one screen. Everything fits. It’s perfect!

    Great Monitor for the price!

    I recently bought this for my WFH setup, the monitor is great for it's price & doing the job great.

    The only minor drawback for me was it does not have a 3.5mm audio output port, which would have been good to connect a speaker for Movies.

    It also is not height adjustable but you can tilt it, I have no problems with this on my desk.

    If they are not your concerns, this is the monitor you are looking for.

    Great monitor

    I'm a voice actor, and I bought this monitor to use in my home studio with my MacBook Pro. Is the picture quality as nice as the Retina display on my Mac? Definitely not. But, it's doing a great job for the awesome price, and I definitely don't regret the purchase.

    Something that is bittersweet: the display can be VERY bright. I had to turn the brightness way down as it was making my eyes hurt within minutes.

    The buttons don't seem very user-friendly, but I can usually just leave them alone.

    Somewhat of a Faulty screen

    I believe I was sent somewhat of a faulty monitor because on the bottom right of the screen it's seems like it's more bright than the rest of the screen, it's pretty annoying because I see it as a eye sore and it's very distracting for me when I'm doing anything

    Almost Perfect

    It was love at first sight, and after sitting in front of them for 10 hours a day for the past few weeks, I'm very happy with my purchase. So here are the pros - size and 4K resolution are standouts; the detail, color quality, brightness, are wonderful. Since I spend most of my time staring at text (documents, code, email, slack) the eyestrain reduction has been very welcome (see images - the slight tint in color is because of this). I was fortunate to be able to get two of them to setup an office environment at home, and at this time I'd say they are almost perfect.

    So the only thing I can say is that the controls (its a direction switch at the base of the screen below the Samsung logo) can be a bit finicky when you are just starting to use it. Things like turning them off can be a bit tricky if you have no inputs, as the monitors auto detect sources and can present options based on that. But once you figure that out, its simple to use. That really the only thing I've found and that me nitpicking.

    One important lesson I've learned thought is not so much about the monitor, but about using 4K, especially multiple 4K monitors on an older laptop: You need an appropriate 4K Dock to push 4K content to all devices without issue. I have two laptops - one for work (a 2019 Dell Precision 7730 with Xeon processor) and my personal (a 2015 HP Omen 17t-W200 with Core i7 and and UHD screen) that I've connect the monitors to and while the newer Dell can push 4K to both monitors without any issue, my HP started stuttering and lagging just connecting one. After some checks, I found that the integrated graphics cards needed to be configured to use my NVIDIA card as primary or offload some of the processing to the Dock. I purchased the WAVLINK USB-C Dual 4K universal docking station (Model UG69PD2) with E-mark chip and it supported all three screens at [email protected] 60Hz from both devices without issues. It also supports Mac and has a built in 100W power to the laptop and devices (if your device supports it). If you are having issues with refresh of you purchase this monitor, I highly getting a dock. It'll provide a lot of flexibility and expandability for you.

    Mega Sweet

    Love it!! After trying a 2k monitor and a VA Panel 4k monitor I found this glorious thing. I don't play video games or edit videos so I can't speak to how it performs in those areas; however, for spreadsheets, word docks, trading websites and such it is awesome. So clear, so crisp, so awesome. The only thing I don't care for is the non-adjustable stand; it has a large footprint and is rather tall. I bought an after-market adjustable stand for $20 from a well known online retail and problem solved. Best IPS 4k monitor value around.

    It’s perfect. Except the design of wall mount.

    Everything is just more than I expected. And I think it’s anti glare too even there’s a No in specifications.

    Just one more thing: if you want to use the Monitor Desk Mount make sure that you are buying the absolute Vesa Wall Mount “75mmx75mm”. DO NOT BUY the 100mmx100/75mmx75mm. It wil not fit the circle in the back of the monitor.

    Amazing monitors

    Spending $700 on 2 monitors was not the plan but after purchasing and returning cheap Lenovo monitors... I knew that this is not an area where I should compromise especially when I spend 7 hours a day staring at them for work. I have them set up on the Mount It! dual monitor stand and I see a lot of concerns about the vesa hardware issue. Honestly I just screwed them in as far as they would go without bending the mount or damaging the monitors and they are secured on even with a little gap. So the standard 75mm/100mm hardware worked for me. I added pictures.

    Great monitor for Xbox One X!

    I purchased this monitor for my Xbox One X. Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4 & Resident Evil 2 looks amazing in HDR. This monitor also supports FreeSync which is great. The picture quality is superb and is one of the few Samsung IPS panels out there. If you own a Xbox One X/PS4 Pro it’s a must buy.

    Curved Coolness

    First time I've bought a curved monitor. Took a couple of days of getting used to but we really like it. Probably best if your desk and monitor backside face a window vs. having its light reflect a little in the monitor. The curve picks up a little more reflection angle but is not really a problem when using it. Definition is crisp and colors are sharp and true.

    Quality product that looks great too.

    Really impressed with this portable monitor! I had been looking at buying one for months and kept seeing horror stories of every single product I'd found (maybe I shouldn't read so many reviews), then committed to this ASUS ZenScreen 15.6". It's incredibly lightweight, more so than even my Mac Air. Speaking of which, I'm using a 2020 Mac Air and it works perfect with this monitor. The USBC cable connection is super simple, and the fact that the monitor doesn't need a separate power source makes it truly portable. I will note that with it's extremely light design, I'd be careful about transporting - it isn't flimsy by any means, but much thinner than your average monitor, leaving it a bit more prone to cracking if not stored/carried properly. Overall, I definitely recommend this if you are looking for a sleek, attractive, reliable product. I'm impressed!

    Perfect for traveling home office

    Got this monitor so I could work “from home” in as many places as possible, whether my apartment, parent’s house, or girlfriend’s apartment. It’s perfect for that, giving me dual monitors from my work laptop pretty much anywhere. The screen quality is crystal clear (better than my 1 year old 14” 1080p laptop screen actually). Connection is simple and worked right out of the box. Stand took ~2 minutes to figure out, it’s not obvious but once you figure it out the viewing angle is spot on.

    Great for Travel

    At first I was going to give this 4 stars becasue I thought the cover that turns into a stand only made the monitor very angled back and awkward as many others mentioned. However, after using it for a couple days I realized I wans't using the stand correctly and after one adjustment the angle is correct! See photo. That said the cover doesn't protect the whole thing but does protect the screen side well.

    I am using this with a Dell XPS 15 (2020) laptop. All I did was plug the monitor into my USB C port and BOOM connected. I did have to change from mirroring to extension in the settings but that was it. This fit perfectly in my laptop sleeve I already have because it is so thin and about the same LxW as my laptop. Frankly, with the work I do not having this laptop plugged in all the time is not possible so I can't speak to battery drain.

    Overall, with the early black Friday sale this was a steal I'll use a lot!

    Perfect solution

    This is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Something I could take from room to room and beyond so I can have a 2nd screen when I decide to work on my laptop vs my desktop. I did have to download the driver but after that, it’s as simple as plug in and go. I have trouble with the cover, you have to slide it on JUST right in order for it to feel secure. Other than this small issue, this was a great deal. My friend has one and she attached Velcro command strips to the back and puts it on her wall when she’s working at her desk. The screen is beautiful and bright. No complaints. This has really changed my day to day wfh experience for the better.

    ASUS with Microsoft Surface Pro

    Despite the flimsy stand, this is a great travel monitor! I am using it with a Microsoft Surface Pro. Both the monitor and my computer neatly fit into my backpack or computer satchel. The monitor comes with a USB-C cord that plugged right into my Microsoft Surface Pro. The monitor has display setting adjustments to include BlueLight level settings.

    The only complaint is the stand. The stand folds up neatly and attaches to the monitor to protect the screen when traveling. But, when in use, it's flimsy and I've had the monitor slid off more than once. I will frequently prop a corner against a coffee mug to provide extra bracing.

    For anyone who needs an extra monitor to work with while traveling, this is the monitor for you.

    Great for productivity but better out there.

    If you can get it on sale, this is a great monitor. For the retail price, there is better out there. The size is kind of small for the resolution. A 32" would be better for text legibility. Scaling does work well, though, with very clear text for the most part. I have this paired with a late 2013 iMac 21.5" and it's definitely a welcome upgrade compared to 21.5" 1080p. Color-wise, I was able to get it calibrated VERY close to the iMac, basically identical with just a super tiny variance, unnoticeable unless you're looking for it. Monitor does have some backlight bleed and IPS glow, best for bright rooms. Viewing angles are HORRIBLE for an IPS display. Not a big deal to me, but if you don't view straight on, it gets messy quick, which is surprising for an IPS Panel. I would swear this is VA or TN based on viewing angles alone. Like I said, "for the money" this is a good monitor. You get what you pay for. For me, using a budget iMac I got for free and spent $400 in upgrades, plus $280 for this monitor, this is great. If you're trying to pair with a new iMac or Mac Mini, etc., or if you have the budget to blow, I would look elsewhere. With my combo only runs at 30Hz, which is surprisingly Ok, coming from someone with 120-165Hz gaming panels for various other systems. For productivity, this is a great monitor. Gaming, look elsewhere. I use this only for music production and basic web browsing/general use. Needed more screen real estate for my DAW and hardware controller apps. Gaming is a different story, as I have other systems for that (LG E9 OLED paired with a 3080, Dell 27" 1440p 165 Hz with a 2080, etc). For budget or basic use, this is very good. Spend more if you want top tier. I have high end displays, and this is not it. If you haven't caught on yet, SPEND MORE MONEY IF IT MAKES SENSE FOR YOUR USE CASE. STAY AWAY FOR GAMING. For a budget monitor on sale, it's terrific. For the $450+ asking price, you can get WAY better!

    Side note: with my Late 2013 iMac with GT750M, it ONLY worked HDMI - a mini DP to DP cable did NOT work, even when setting DP mode on the monitor to 1.2. The monitor menus lagged like crazy, and had no picture. Switched back to mini DP to HDMI 2.0 (Microsoft adapter), and it worked just fine. Stick with HDMI on this one with a late 2013 iMac - DP did NOT work!

    Bought two of those to replace MSI curved monitors. MSI was a perfect fit for my setup, but were unusable, as it made me nauseous in just couple of hours of use, looked like image would double in my eyes.

    Those LG monitors are bright and crisp. Connections are straight forward, and set up is easy. Consider using display port instead of hdmi. It offers better resolution, and hdr pass through, unlike hdmi.

    Those monitors are used for work, not gaming. Spending hours at a time with no ill effect to my eyes. Currently, two of those are connected to a mac mini, with usb-c to display port cables (not included with monitors).

    I am not sure that 4k made any difference, as I am using only half the resolution permitted, to keep icons, and shrift at a decent size.

    4k immersion

    I cannot say a bad thing about this monitor for gaming on my Xbox Series X!

    The monitor automatically detected the top graphics setting and applied them. My gaming went from being so/so on first person shooters to being SNIPER SUPREME.

    If you are a casual gamer like me and want to step up your enjoyment level and take advantage of the AMAZING graphics, this is the right monitor for you.

    Great picture not so great price

    Good all around monitor. 4K resolution looks very nice with the HDR. If you are buying to game on, it is not a high frame rate display. However it easy is to look at for extended periods and does have a game mode. I like how it shows total time powered on in settings. Only downfall is the price unless you can grab it on sale.

    5 stars for the sale price 279.99

    Got the monitor for 279.99, and speaking to the price, it is a good monitor. UP600 is match better than last year's ul650, and up600 gives DCI-P3 color, which is great for MacBook user.

    The color quality is pretty good, though had a delta <5 rather than 2 or 3 compared to higher end.

    The port is limited to only three and no power charger as well to laptop. But since I had a thunderbolt dock and don't need these fancy staff but good image quality, and especially considering the price deal, it's a very satisfied purchase.

    So good I bought a second one!

    Bought this to add a second monitor to my desktop. The other monitor is an older 1080p and I bought this to take advantage of the 4k capabilities of my graphics card. This display on this monitor is very clear and the colors really pop. The beauty of this monitor made my older monitor look dull... so I immediately bought a second one to replace the older monitor!

    The only caution I would provide is the monitor does not have any height adjustment and it wasn't at a comfortable height for me. To solve this, I replaced the original stands with adjustable VESA compliant stands. Now my setup is perfect!

    Screen

    The screen looks amazing and I like how you can have two HDMI cords going to it.
