Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Interesting black and white design is unique
The white glossy base and rear of this monitor may not suit everybody, but it certainly gives it some personality which sets it apart from other monitors. The contrasting colors can look sharp in many setups, although not all of them.
Pro Fast response time means no display lag
With only 5ms of response time, this monitor will display images nearly instantly after they are received. This is important, especially for touchscreens where a delay in touch input and the displayed image moving would be very noticeable. 5ms is also considered good enough even for high level gaming, although world-wide top players will prefer even lower response times.
Pro Very good viewing angles
With 178 degrees of both vertical and horizontal viewing angles, this monitor can be used at an angle with no problems, and if watching media with other people they will still see a clear picture even if they are viewing it off-angle.
Con Limited adjustment doesn't allow full range of movement
The stand allows for 30 degrees of tilt, which is more than adequate for traditional monitors - however this is sub-par for touchscreen monitors. Touchscreen monitors benefit from tilt adjustments more than traditional monitors, as different uses work best at different angles. For example, watching a movie or web browsing is best done in a near-vertical position, while typing on an on-screen keyboard is most comfortable at a large angle which can't be achieved with this monitor.
There also is no swivel, pivot, or height adjustment.
Con Sub-par display quality
Colors are somewhat accurate, as this monitor scored 86.8% of the sRGB color gamut...however when compared to other IPS panels which typically score 95% or higher this is a disappointing result (after calibration it still fell short at around 91%).
Black levels are measured at 0.32cd/m² which means that when pure black is displayed on the screen, they will appear gray-ish instead of a true black. This leads to a lower than advertised contrast ratio of 519:1 (it is advertised at 1000:1), which isn't impressive at all.
Con No USB ports
While many other monitors in this price range offer USB pass through as an added feature, this one lacks any extra USB ports. You can't plug in any mice, keyboards, or external hard drives into this monitor.
