But, it's not perfect. The stand is usable if you're careful, but really terribly designed. This 28" monitor is wide, and is not completely stable sitting on the stand. It doesn't take very much of a bump before the monitor feels like it's going to tip over. I would have rather paid another $40 or $50 for a stand that feels more stable than this one. But, I didn't buy the monitor for the stand, so it's only a minor complaint.
Second, the buttons are placed under the bottom bezel of the monitor, which makes them more inconvenient to reach than if they were on the face of the bottom bezel. Once again, not a dealbreaker, but not as good of a design as it could be.
Third, you can't (apparently) switch input sources without going through the menu. In my case, I have my main PC connected via DP and a laptop occasionally connected via HDMI. I miss a button to cycle through the inputs.
Fourth, the blue power LED is blinding. It lights up my office when the lights are out. It would be perfectly functional at a tenth of the brightness. But, easily fixed with a small piece of black electrical tape.
It took some work to get the settings (color, brightness, contrast, gamma, etc) reasonably correct, but once I had those dialed in, the picture quality really shines.
All in all, for the price, I'm very happy, and would still recommend this monitor. But, there is still room for improvement.
PROS: Size, weight, screen quality, picture quality, packaging
CONS: the stand, button placement, no way to switch inputs without entering menu, power LED
The issue with that supplied with the monitor stand is its stiffness, being cheap plastic. Even if you want to set it and forget it, vibrations of the desk will cause the monitor to move, so just make your arrangements for a stand and be pleased as I am that the money and design has been invested in the best monitor screen for its price out there.
PROS: Amazing performance / price. The high resolution with large size allows one to see more windows at once. This really improves productivity. Use home audio and video recording studio.
CONS: We all know - the stand, so make provision up front.
It's just fine! It holds up the monitors, tilts, and is relatively solid.
Sure, if you pound on your keyboard like a monkey or dribble a basketball on your desk, you're going to get some wobbling. But I've never experienced any problem with normal use.
Second, this is a great way to get into 4K video at an affordable price point.
I wanted to run two monitors at 4K, so I did my homework and upgraded to a GeForce GTX 960 card.
Connected the monitors using two DisplayPort cables, and boom, both running 4K (3840 x 2160) at 60Hz.
No drama. (And I'm running Windows 10).
Small issue... The monitors are slightly mismatched in regards to color temperature. I'll probably spend some time fine tuning the colors, but for now, it's plenty good enough.
PROS: Affordable and powerful
CONS: Small color mismatch between two displays
I shouldn't be TOO hard on this model for a 4k monitor, it was a pretty good deal. But alas, here I am... with a list of praise and complaints.
So, I bought two because they were cheap... and until I got these, never seemed to have enough screen space. These things are MASSIVEwhich I love. They look legit, and when they're up and running, work great, for normal watching needs and work/development tasks.
The colors all look good. I did have to adjust them separately... the same settings on one didn't look as good on the other... even though, they were brand new, and the exact same model and production date... anyways.... The colors are great, and were really easy to adjust.
While we're talking about the colors... the backlight is very nice to have, but it does bleed through A LOT on darker screens.
One MAJOR complaint I have is that for as big as these things are, the base that they sit on is total garbage. I saw someone else mention that the stand was not great, and the the monitor is very loose, with the screen itself tilting forward to the point that the monitor almost falls. (For one of my monitors, this is very true.)
PROS: Came with HDMI cables
Bezel looks very nice
Menu is easy to use
CONS: LOTS of backlight bleeding
Stand is very cheapget a mount/arm
Mount/stand blocks the ports on the back of monitor
Metal on back of monitor (around the ports) is VERY sharp
PROS: I like the number and variety of video inputs. There were no dead or hot pixels. Flashlighting and backlight uniformity is okay.
With 6 office windows behind me, this monitor was visible and readable but don't expect a Dell Ultra Sharp quality (nor the price). I'm happy, not elated, but happy with the purchase.
CONS: The plastic base is very flimsy and is too top heavy. If your setup has the monitor positioned such it can be bumped, then you'll need a mount. The monitor's back lighting is not very bright and the color gamut is poor. For gaming this monitor would do fair for you. and it is definitely not for movies and photo editing.
I had ordered a DisplayPort cable with the monitor, but I foolishly ordered too short a cable. My fault entirely. So, eager to get it up-and-running, I used an HDMI cable instead. All was good full 4k resolution very crisp. Refresh rate was low (expected due to HDMI input) but absolutely acceptable.
I went into the menus on the monitor and wanted to try out the 'multi-window' feature. I often use two machines side-by-side, and I was intrigued about the possibility of having each PC occupy 1/2 of the screen.
This was a terrible mistake.
First, I didn't have the inputs set correctly for the multi-window, so I think it tried to display an unconnected input on one side. This, in turn, resulted in a "no input so let's go to sleep" condition. When this monitor goes to sleep, it is almost impossible to regain control. Without a valid input, you'll be hard pressed to get the menu back up.
When I finally regained control and switched back to just HDMI/full-screen, it because evident that something was wrong. It was as if the monitor no longer would send EDID via HDMI. My PC decided it was a generic non-PnP monitor with very low resolution. All other laptops simply refused to display anything via HDMI.
FWIW, the other ports do seem to be operational, but I want to use both DisplayPort and HDMI to attach two devices. Try as I may, I cannot get HDMI to operate as it did when I took the monitor out of the box. The 'reset' menu command seems to do little.
I contacted Monoprice support but did not hear back.
Speaking of menus wow, the buttons on this monitor are bad. They are placed poorly, are not well aligned with the text on the bezel, and the menuing system is poorly designed. I just want to easily switch inputs, like on every other monitor and TV made in the past 20 years.
If I had the monitor that I took out of the box, I'd be happy. But, right now, I have a monitor which does not perform as advertised.
PROS: Price, Weight
CONS: HDMI failed buttons
PROS: Beautiful screen.
CONS: VESA mount hole nuts stripped out, stand is very unstable.
PROS: Bright and Sharp
Then I went in for this monitor based on the reviews. Once I got them I hooked one of them up to a Surface dock with a Surface Book and WOW! The one I use at home with the Surface dock runs at 60Hz, the two at work connected to Surface Dock run at 30Hz (which is a limitation of the Surface or Surface Dock). There are zero dead pixels color is even, the built in speakers are ok but I use head phones any way. The connections, DVI, HDMI, DP are all great. I use Display Port. I would recommend these (proof is that I have three, bought at different times after trying out one). For the price of one dell 24 incher, I pretty much got two of the MonoPrice ones and that to 28”.
PROS: Light, huge, super clear works great.
CONS: From what you expect, the built in speakers are ok, but I use headphones.
PROS: Perfect picture, brilliant and accurate colors (out of the box, I even calibrated it and there were only minor changes), excellent brightness levels, all with fantastic features and warranty. I haven't had to use it because zero dead pixels means zero dead pixels. I got a magnifying glass and every one of the 8 million some odd pixels are working perfectly.
CONS: The stand might as well not be a stand, and there is some fairly noticeable backlight bleeding along the lower left edge of the screen. It has seemed to fade as time has passed these last few weeks. that said, I knocked off half a star. Sorry MP.
