Great color quality
While not as stylish as the Samsung Series 9, the Asus PB278Q offers the same strong color and viewing angle performance for around $500 less, and it has a highly adjustable stand and an audio input, both of which are missing from the Series 9. The Series 9 has a USB hub, however, while the PB278Q doesn't. The IPS-based Dell UltraSharp 2713HM offers similar performance and a more robust feature set at a competitive price, which is why it remains our Editors' Choice for big-screen monitors.
I now have three of these monitors and am very satisfied with them. No dead pixels, no backlight leakage, just high quality displays. You will have to manually calibrate them, as color accuracy out of the box isn't great. You'll easily notice it if they're side-by-side. But that's pretty trivial to do. I also have two 30" much more expensive WQHD Dells and I actually prefer these. I have two plugged into my Macbook Retina Pro and they really provide a desktop experience.
Excellent picture quality pre- and post-calibration
ASUS's PDB278Q monitor is a great choice for gamers, business users, or anyone who wants the best possible image quality from a reasonably-priced monitor. It has a few good preset modes, is well built, and has useful features. It's not perfect, but it's a good value PLS panel.
Very nice 27 inch display
The ASUS PB278Q is a very nice 27" display, and is a good debut for PLS but not an outstanding one. Perhaps if used in one of the ASUS ProArt models with higher end calibration and backlighting we could see if PLS can offer superior, not just equal, performance to IPS panels. Hopefully this marks the start of a race for features and performance in higher end LCD panels that will benefit consumers.
Great colour quality
While not as stylish as the Samsung Series 9, the Asus PB278Q offers the same strong colour and viewing angle performance for around £250 less, and it has a highly adjustable stand and an audio input, both of which are missing from the Series 9. The Series 9 has a USB hub, however, which the PB278Q lacks.
Wide viewing angle
Sure, the HP 2311xi's In-Plane Switching panel affords it wider viewing angles than what most 23 inchers enjoy, but that's not what makes it a compelling potential purchase. It's the fact that it has this powerful IPS panel with a price starting at a low $240. That's cheaper than even some Twisted Nematic (TN) monitors, which usually sport pretty low prices.
Great IPS monitor
Moved to a dual monitor system and I wanted monitors with an IPS panel display (best for photo editing). I was a tad sceptical because of the relatively low price, but higher end IPS monitors can run $500+ each. Since I was buying 2, I thought I would try the HP 2311xi, and it turns out that I made a good decision. This is a great monitor!
Great Monitor, one little flaw
After ordering a Dell 23" monitor a couple weeks back I had to return it due to a severe case of back light bleed. The monitor was perfect otherwise. This monitor is the replacement because the Dell was out of stock at the time. so I chose the best value/most features. Out of the box this thing is blindingly bright, I never understood why companies ship out monitors and tvs this way, but as usual had to mess with the settings right away.
Energy efficient monitor
When it comes to the best picture quality and absolute convenience, the ViewSonic VA2406M-LED is a little lacking, but the pros outweigh the cons. The LED backlighting is a plus. It gives this monitor an advantage over many other monitors using TN technology by helping reduce power consumption and improve contrast and brightness. It is a good monitor and a solid purchase.
Great performance and plenty of features for the money
The Asus PA248Q is aimed at serious graphics professionals and enthusiasts and delivers great performance and plenty of features for the money. It offers more screen space than a typical 24inch display and offers a full set of adjustments and comes calibrated.
An Excellent Screen
I'm very pleased with this purchase. The one issue I was mildly concerned about, the stand, is actually no problem at all. The screen is mounted on a swivel that gives a (for my needs) adequate range - you can tilt it so the screen is slightly inclined toward the front, or back slightly. Otherwise, it pairs without problem with my MacBook. Good stuff.
Intuitive OSD with real buttons
LG's IPS235 carries the cachet of true-to-life IPS color without the cash outlay of spendier competitors. While it's not the brightest monitor in this price range, its broad color spectrum and surprisingly sound out-of-the-box calibration make it a good fit for anyone concerned with viewing images as they're supposed to appear. The rather dull bezel and stand can be overlooked for the price tag, though we do wish the IPS235 did a better job displaying near-black.
Good price-performance ratio
The greatest weakness of the LG IPS235V is its stand and the meagre ergonomic functions associated with it. Use of the OSD is also not truly convenient, which is partly the fault of the stand. Since the model has VESA 100 screw holes, however, it is relatively easy to attach an alternative mount, whether this be a stand or a monitor arm. The illumination was also not ideal, but this is subject to a certain degree of variation within a series.
For the price, it is great
I am sure there are better monitors out there and ones that are more precise for persons who need that. However, for the price of this monitor and my more or less general needs, it is great. The setup was easy enough and while it does lack in areas like adjustments, it is fine for general use. If you are looking for real estate, this one does fine.
The Acer G276HL is a 27 inch LCD monitor that's designed to deliver high definition at 1920 x 1080 resolution. Acer has done a great job over the past years when it comes to their monitors.
The Acer G276HL is a fairly new monitor that was just released some time in-between of August and September of 2012. It's sleek design and smart use of energy is what makes this monitor stands out.
For those that multi-task when using their computer will definitely benefit off of this monitor.
Good Price for a 27 inch monitor
The Acer G276HL Dbmid review for this monitor is a "Good Buy". People that are wanting to buy their computer monitors separately or wanting to upgrade from their smaller screened monitor, the Acer G276HL Dbmid is a good choice. It has the features that you can find from more expensive monitors but has a good price. And for a 27 inch upgrade, I will not e complaining. :)
A solid monitor, with great upsides, and some downsides as well
This monitor is great. I feel like I am staring into another universe when using it. Doesn't feel like I am looking at a screen.
It looks nice, especially when turned off (because the bezel looks so thin... its not actually that thin).
The color is great. Pictures I have seen for years all of a sudden look better, Like I am seeing them for the first time (and my last monitor wasnt even bad... it just wasn't IPS i guess)
It is nice and thin as well.
Badly needs more processing and graphics power.
ViewSonic's new Smart Display VSD220, though, is actually nothing like its predecessor and, in fact, shows how much the world has turned. While the Air Panel tried to leverage desktop power, the new Smart Display VSD220 reverses the tide by leveraging tablet technology in a desktop.
Touchscreen is reasonably easy to use
If you're willing to abandon Windows or Mac OS and conduct your day-to-day work on a mega-size Android tablet, the ViewSonic VSD220 is a classy take on what may well be a new desktop genre. If you expect to work on it with more than occasional typing, though, we'd strongly suggest a separate keyboard and mouse, or your arms will really ache.
Decent number of sockets, cables for HDMI to micro-HDMI and USB supplied
The VSD 220 does two distinct things, and does one well and one reasonably.
Honestly, we're disappointed by the Android functionality. There's not enough power to make it a compelling Android device, and there's loads of room here to make it perhaps the best specified device on the market.
The dreadful app support is upsetting too. Games like Where's My Perry and Cut the Rope simply aren't compatible - although Angry Birds is.
