Ordered this item from Overstock, believing it was "New". However, upon opening the box, it clearly was either a previously opened item or "refurbished" and the monitor was not advertised as such. It did not contain the CD-ROM disc, cable was missing, other parts were not in sealed plastic covers, or were placed in sealed covers that were opened, then taped over in a rudimentary fashion. Clearly, false advertising by Overstock. Offered an extremely paltry adjustment to keep the item by Overstock representative. Had no choice but to return it for a full refund. Can't comment on the product itself as I did not get a chance to use it.

Needed a dual screen monitor for work and this is an excellent choice. Easy to set up and use and wonderful clarity and color.

This is a good solid monitor for every day use. I have two of these and have been very pleased with them. I have not had any of the issues that some of the reviewers have had. Even for gaming, they have handle the graphics with no problems.

This is a great monitor. I have been using it daily for several weeks now and I love the fact I do not have to use glasses while working! Don't get glasses just keep getting a larger monitor is my motto!!! :) My son bought this monitor from another vendor for $40 more! He was thrilled with the product and I was thrilled to find it at even a cheaper price than he did!

Bought this for my son. He is very pleased with it. He uses it for his design work as the monitor on his mac book was too small for his art work. His friend liked it so much that he bought some (4). Easy to set up. Recommend highly.

After doing some research and reading reviews on this monitor, I bought it for 1 of my 2 Dell OptiPlex 780 desktops. I've been using 19" widescreen monitors for awhile, and my eyes are not what they used to be, so I decided to make a "sizeable" upgrade. After receiving and setting up this monitor(which was quick and easy) and using it for a week, I liked it so much that I decided to buy one for my other desktop. I am now the proud owner of 2 of them. I would definitely recommend this monitor to anyone who has a desire for a larger one.

We bought this monitor to use at work with a chromebook that goes back and forth from home. It had the right connection to be used with the HDMI cable, and It even came with a handle on the box. We thought it was a really good value for the size and combination of features we were looking for and the warranty is one of the longest I have seen.

Nice monitor that is lightweight with sound. The sound is actually much better than I expected after reading other reviews. My only problem has been using the controls since they operate differently than described in the manual. Also have been unable to darken the screen enough to work in low light, it is very very bright. That said, it is great in bright daylight.

This is a display I use at work (as a computer programmer), and I was so happy with it that I bought one for home as well. Pretty expensive, but it is well worth it if you are going to sit in front of it many hours per day. The picture is eye-friendly, and the working area is huge - it can display long lines without wrapping, or I can place multiple windows side by side. The colors do not change when viewed from different angles - very important if the screen is big, since you would necessarily see different portions of the screen at different angles. Note that this is a professional-grade monitor, and it does not have some bells and whistles that consumer-grade monitors often have - no speakers, no on-screen menu, no picture-in-picture or built-in TV, no HDMI. It does have DVI input (make sure to use dual-link cable) and one display port. Also note that with resolution 2560x1900 not every computer can drive it. Even some newest PC motherboards (as of July 2012) with on-board graphics cannot drive it via DVI, but only via display port or Thunderbolt, if you happen to have one. Be sure to check your video output is good enough. Another caveat: if you are using MS Windows, you need to install drivers for this monitor (so much for plug-and-play), otherwise it will not get out of the sleep mode. Mac and Linux accept this monitor without problems.

The picture on this monitor is absolutely beautiful, as is the monitor itself. PROS: - PHYSICAL CONSTRUCTION, stand included, is sturdy enough that I don't have to worry about knocking the monitor over or breaking it. TILTING the monitor is efforless, and it rotates up and down enough that I don't have to worry about my seat height, i.e., if I sit high and need to make the monitor face up to face me, it is easily done. - I don't do photography work, so I don't worry about calibration and so on, but the COLORS are vivid and clear. It has several convenient color modes, including a "warm" one, which I use in the evening to relax my eyes before bed. - The picture is very sharp. This is because such a high resolution is packed into a 21.5 inch screen. The PIXEL PITCH is as good as you will get in this generation's monitors that are in a usable size. - The VIEWING ANGLE is absolutely amazing. - Has a HDMI port for extra devices! CONS: - None really.(Does NOT include speakers)

Real Estate, Real Estate, Real Estate! It's all about the Desktop Real Estate! I bought 2 of these to run dual for an effective Desktop Real estate of 5120X1440 (2560X1440 X 2) I was running dual 24" @ 3840 X 1200 before these, but this is now just awesome! I did not realize how crappy my old Dell 2407's have become until I got these new PB278Q. I have no problems with the Monitors, 1 of them has a tiny red dead pixel, but amazing that it's only 1 considering each monitor has millions of pixels. The only problems I'm having are not the Monitors themselves, the problem is with DisplayPort, I purchased a new Video Card because my old Radeon 5450 only had 1 - DVI-DL + 1 HDMI + 1 VGA (BTW VGA is worthless, I don't know why they still put VGA on when nobody uses it anymore as it degrades picture quality) HDMI does NOT run 2560X1440 Resolution) I had to buy a new Radeon HD 7770 dual Mini DP ports. The Monitors don't come out of sleep, I have yet to REALLY figure out the freaking problem, cables, drivers, What? It does not happen if one monitor is connected to DVI-DL, only the DP connected Monitor(s) It's not the Monitors problem, it's DisplayPort. Google it, there are complaints all over about it, but I have yet to find a REAL solution as of 10-12-2013 I've only read a whole lot of BS about this problem.
