Pros The screen quality is superb, and the control system on the bottom right-hand corner is great and easy to use. The stand seems to be made of metal. It was easy to assemble the stand.
Cons The cables (VGA, DVI) that are included are not good, and create what appear to be bad pixels until you straighten them out. There are no speakers in this monitor, unlike HP's own Envy 27. It is made of plastic on the rear, and below the glass panel.
Summary If you just want a screen, with great picture quality and a low price, and are going to use HDMI or purchase your own cables, and do not need sound, then this is a great monitor. The main monitor part is superb, with just the extras feeling a little like they were made cheaply. The stand was easy to assemble, and was made of metal.
