    I would first like to say that this, the monitor is amazing for the price. I have never run into a monitor that looks this good. It is awesome. The reason for the 5 is because of dust under the glass. I have gotten the product RMA'd a number of times for various issues but I have been very patient because this monitor is awesome. However, on the latest monitor I have several specks of dust under the glass. With this issue I have been told that a replacement is not possible so I guess that is where this product stands for me. It is a phenomenal monitor, but if you get one with dust, be prepared to be stuck with it. Basically, buyer beware.

    PROS: Gorgeous monitor

    CONS: Speakers are not great to put it lightly

    Dust under the glass

    Overall, this is a great monitor for the price I received ($269.99). It's quite a thick monitor with a thick bezel, but it frames the screen well given that it is glossy. Through one week of intensive use (10-12+ hrs of text), there have been no dead pixels or other issues. The menu is cumbersome with limited adaptability. The stand is a tad shaky but provides excellent adjustment in vertical height and rotation. I have used it both sitting at my desk and at full vertical height and angle while standing.

    PROS: Monitor adjustment (vertical and rotation in two axes)

    CONS: A bit wobbly

    Inefficient menu navigation

    Horrible Glare
    The glare on this monitor makes it practically unusable in my office. I could only see this monitor working well if I sat in a dark basement. When I have anything open that has a dark background, I can see myself as if I were looking into a mirror. I'm used to having a dark background in my development IDE, but I had to switch to a light background just so I could see my code. Fortunately I didn't pay for this (my company did), so I have already requested a different brand.

    PROS: Cheap?

    CONS: This monitor might as well be a mirror.

    Great Monitor!
    After agonizing for months over which external display to add to my MBP retina, I had it down to either a Nixeus or this one. I wanted out-of-the-box compatibility with my Mac, so I didn't want to gamble with any of the inexpensive Korean models you see all over eBay, or risk their return policy. Finally I just decided to go with my gut and stay with Monoprice. I've never received a bad product from them in the past - and this monitor is no exception. I used the Monoprice mini-display port to display port cable, plugged it in, and it just worked. MBP detected it and set it up at 2560x1440. No bad pixels, no dust under the cover, the stand is solid. I couldn't be happier. Maybe I just got lucky and got a good one, but I don't think so. I don't do any high-end gaming, so I can't comment on its performance there, but for my needs this thing rocks! Highly recommended.

    PROS: Price, vivid colors, stand, packaging

    CONS: None. I went into this purchase not expecting anything from the speakers, and wanting a glossy screen.

    Totally satisfied
    I've been looking for a monitor for 5-4 months, jumped on this one when it came out. It met my price point (with a 20% discount), size and resolution. And I wanted displayport and a clean looking bezel.

    After using it a week, I like it. Spouse likes it. It replaced a 24" iMac, which was clean, no power cord. I have to hide the AC/DC power brick and do some cord management to get it to be as clean.

    It looks great, you can't get a better monitor for the price. I avoided a UHD (3840/4096 x 2160) since they cram so many pixels you really need a 32" or larger display to use it, unless you have hawk eye vision.

    We also looked at the 21:9 monitors, but came to realize, you are just throwing away vertical resolution.

    We're not gaming, just browsing, working on office documents and viewing/editing photos. It looks great hooked up to MacMini (OSX and Win7) but not so good with Surface Pro 3(quick test). Both were displayport at native resolution.

    PROS: Lots of input choices, but I only use Display Port

    No bad pixels

    Nice front face, almost iMac like with a flat face

    Has M logo, not Monoprice on face

    Price is unbeatable

    Easy adjust up down and tilt

    CONS: Has an external AC to DC brick and nowhere to put it. Need to velcro it to the stand

    Built in speakers are junk

    Dust, but manageable.
    I came into this purchase a little hesitant, but decided to do it anyway because the $269 price was at a place where I was willing to take a chance when other screens with decent resolution were markedly higher. I don't know the difference between Korean and non-Korean panels, or whether the color balance on this panel is better than another, or any of that deep detailed stuff, so I can only base my opinion on what I see in front of me.

    The monitor looks nice, from a visual standpoint. It has a clean front, with a clean logo at the bottom. I've turned the brightness all the way down but it's still a bit bright for me. After working in a 911 emergency communications center with 6 monitors for a number of years on graveyard shift, looking at the bright screens really takes a toll on me at night. However, when the brightness is turned up, and the colors are adjusted a little, it looks pretty nice to me. But then again, maybe others can comment on it's "accuracy" or whatever else it is that is important to "good" monitors.

    My unit does not have any dead pixels, thankfully. When I first set the monitor up, I looked at the panel, and couldn't see anything out of the ordinary. Now, a week later, I decided to take a flashlight to the panel, and then I could see the dust. It isn't much though, a few specks scattered about which, when compared to the dust any monitor tends to gather on the outside of the panel, really seems to make little difference to me. Once you turn the panel on and start using it, you'll never be able to tell there's dust in there. I put a black screensaver on, and still couldn't find any evidence that the minute amount of dust made a difference.

    In my opinion, yeah it's poor quality control and it sounds like hopefully it's being looked into. However, this has no noticeable impact on the picture. If you're the kind of person that has to have everything absolutely perfect regardless of the minimal impact it has on the use of the product itself, you 1) probably have slightly unrealistic expectations when it comes to a lot of things in life, and 2) should have bought an Apple product or something, lol -)

    PROS: - Adjustable stand (raise/lower, spin left/right, tilt).

    - Pretty bright at full brightness

    - Clean front bezel. There's a simple "M" logo on the bottom, and a blue "on" light that is placed so it's dim unless you're looking right into it.

    CONS: - Pretty bright even at at lowest setting

    - Range of motion for the adjustable stand isn't great, but it's much better than getting a fixed stand :-)

    - Menu is hard to navigate. The buttons are laid out vertically on the right side, and they're not very easy to manipulate. I feel like they might break if I press them wrong or too hard. It takes several steps to get to the basic options, and trying to remember the proper sequence of buttons is fairly annoying since you would have to look on the back of the monitor to see the labels for the buttons? Then again, perhaps I would be annoyed with buttons on the front too since it would detract from the clean bezel, so I suppose I can't be pleased, lol.

    - DVI-D cord was super short, 3 feet I believe. I have a simple desk with the computer on the floor and I had to rearrange it all to get the cord to reach. A small quibble.

    Visually Stunning
    I've used Dell Ultrasharps mostly in the last 10 years and they are good, but this is truly a work of art. Its super easy to look at all day .

    PROS: Like no other monitor I've used

    CONS: Speaker is garbage but who cares

    Fantastic monitor
    I've bought three of these monitors now (2 for personal use and 1 at work) and have had near-zero issues with them. One of the monitors has a single dead pixel, but I don't notice it at all unless I hunt around for it. For day to day work, programming, videos watching and editing, as well just basic internet time-wasting, I couldn't ask for much more. The only downside is they're a little heavy, but otherwise they're great!

    Inexpensive Sharp Monitor
    Overall, this is a great monitor for the price. It is thick compared to more expensive thin bezel monitors.

    Sound is good for casual use but you can't use it to watch a movie on.

    PROS: Sharp Display.

    Acceptable office Monitor.

    Swivel base is very fluid.

    CONS: Hate the glossy display.

    Great screen, lousy speakers

    PROS: This huge screen is bright and easy to set up. The screen quality is awesome.

    CONS: However, the internal speakers are rough and tinny. Even some cheap external speakers put out better quality sound.
