I purchased this monitor because it was the cheapest 27 inch QHD resolution monitor that rotates. The shipment arrived quickly. The setup was smooth, and there were no dead pixels that I could see. I also purchased an HP 27 Inch QHD monitor, which rotates for $70 more than the HP EliteDisplay E273q. It is much nicer looking with zero bezel on the three sides. The HP monitor has the same picture and stand quality but at a cost of over a quarter of the HP name brand. Although the bezel is not as thin as the HP it is still thinner than all three to eight year old monitors. It's difficult to decide which one is better. As they will easily last seven years, is it worth spending 10 more per year in addition to the average V7 of HP's display array? I believe it is, especially if the area is public. However, if you setup is rarely seen by others or you have a better use for the $70, get this one. I do not think that buying a 4k monitor in the 27inch size is worthwhile. It is costing more money to purchase it and more power for your GPU and PC. QHD or 2K is a very high resolution.
This display was among the lower priced full 2560x1440 display available on Amazon. The screen height can be adjusted by a considerable amount. Also, the screen can be rotated 90 degrees. The speakers which are builtin are not quality yet they are adequate. The display itself is very sharp, in good colors, and bright. I wish it had 120hz, refresh, that would have cost approximately twice as much. I've seen people say that this model can be tuned up to 75hz, but I have not seen an option for that.
Everything arrived exactly as described in the box. This monitor is light and I was able to mount it to a wall mount using VESA screws by myself. My online meetings are much more productive with speakers. For my needs at work, the monitor is fair priced.
I do not like computers because I use the DVI port, but this is fantastic. I am satisfied with the quality, picture, size, and overall look. I would certainly purchase it again.
I needed to order another one and it had a price that I could not refuse on Amazon. I am not a gamer, but I do occasionally web, office, and watch videos. It has a large brightness, good colors, and an appealing design.

I am working on a Raspberry Pi Zero project where I need a monitor. Hauling around a monstrous monitor makes no sense for a computer barely bigger than my thumb. I have tried some of the inexpensive screens that you can get that plug into a Raspberry Pi, and they have their place. They have touch input, but their resolution is quite low. Because sometimes I have to do some development work on the P.I. this smaller screen is often insufficient for my needs so I was looking for a larger screen with a better resolution. I found a screen that has a resolution of 1920x1200 and my experience is that the menu is default in Mandarin. Some screen sellers libel about what it is and claim it is an HD screen. I do not read Mandarin. In the infinite wisdom of the designers they choose all of the menu entries that you need to change the language to be in Mandarin by default. It seems like an odd design decision. You do not need to change the menu if you understand Mandarin. If you cannot then you will not know how to change it. There are a few reviews for it that will help you change it to English. I did not require the menu, but I wanted to see what the options were. On to the second hiccup. I paired this up with an image and it did look nice. Then something happened. The screen blanked, made a soft sound, stayed off for a second or so and returned on. It happened again in just a few minutes. I experienced it on the computer and it was alright. I wanted to wait until I got to the bottom of the issue before doing any review, so I did some searching. I am aware of this as the suggestion is to open a terminal window and then run sudo leafpad /boot/config.txt. Search for the following entries remove the '#' character at the beginning of its line and change to the following values hdmiforcehotplug=1hdmidrive=1hdmimode=16disableoverscan=1Save the file and reboot. It worked wonders. There had been a black border around the screen that I did not notice at the time and that disappeared as well. The issue lies in the configuration of the Pi rather than the monitor. I am happy now, and I will most likely be buying at least one more.
I was looking for an additional display on my desk to be used for my Raspberry Pi server. I think this would fit the bill nicely. But I would not find it to be exciting. This stuff is beyond my expectations. The reproduction appears very well done in colors. It is slightly cool in the box, but you can easily adjust the white balance andgamma by tuning the 0-100 RGB values in the menu. No dead or stuck pixels are on my, and the pixels are sharp and tight. The display is powered by an authentic native 60Hz 1920x1080 pixel panel. Many of the others listed on Amazon as '1080P' are actually much lower resolution. The 0-100 brightness setting controls the backlight of the panel rather than just dumping black or white color into the video signal. You can set the display to be dim or very bright while maintaining contrast. It behaves the same as the brightness settings on any modern smartphone. When a light is on, it shines a bright LED at the top, which is blue when a signal is detected, and red when it is not detected. It is a bit too bright, but could easily be covered with a piece of electrical tape. The tiny rear speaker is overpowered and completely lacks treble, but is there if absolutely necessary. The side has a mini stereo line out jack to make connecting headphones or desktop speakers easier. There are two physical Volume up and down buttons located at the top of the display. The stand, which includes two legs, which supports a large monitor, is simplistic and has all the features that you would expect from a large monitor. All of these cars are rubberized and can be freely adjusted and tightened to any angle. I am very impressed by this model. You must have adjusted your scaling appropriately if you need the desktop interface to be difficult to read.
I purchased this unit in March when I was first getting into streaming as a hobby. I wanted to do more live editing with a small display that could handle the stream controls. Considering the humble price point, I was actually surprised that how good the picture was.Unfortunately after a few months of pretty pedestrian use, the display developed a fault, there was a ghost of a rectangular shape around the outside of the display. I neglected it, because I thought it was burn in from being on for too long. I would recommend a company that puts out the occasionally poor product over others because they have proven to me that they take their after sales support seriously. Thank you Elecrow, we will be doing business again.
This monitor is perfect for POS systems, CCTV camera viewing, computers, cars, DVD players, gaming systems, and many others. It also has an extremely lightweight, but durable case. It feels solid and wellbuilt. I loved Elecrow monitors, the buttons, and their ability to be durable. I like them because they're good for my job. There is small annoyance with the price. I feel like it could be $20 cheaper and be more market competitive. You will need four M3-0,5 x 10mm bolts, which are not included with this or most VESA mounts, look for them online. It works with the video camera wall mount, and the articulating arm monitor bracket. I have used HDMI connections with and without Cat5e extension and the setup seems to work. This is a nontouch screen, this monitor is not. The unit has a volume control and speakers.
It would be a great travel monitor. I purchased this over the Asus travel monitor because it has a dedicated HDMI input. Asus travel monitors use your USB port for power, signal, and transfer, but have obvious video lag. This is the primary reason I chose the Elecrow monitor, even though it utilizes a 12V wall wart adapter. The pictures on the monitor are sharp and easy to look at. The display is not quite as bright as the advertisements above suggest. The monitor has been edited using a photo editing tool. Although it is not as bright as it is portrayed in their advertisements, it is light enough to be used in an ordinary room setting. I like the small stand he comes with. It folds up easily and opens easily. It is not something you can create for a budget, but it works great for holding a small monitor. I plan on purchasing another one because it is very useful and works really well.
V7 21.5" FHD 1920x1080 TN LED Monitor - L215DS-2N
WHAT WE LIKED MOST:
I was looking for a gaming monitor for my Xbox One. I had been using a Sony Bravia HD television and it never failed. While I wished to play, I spotted someone watching television. I am pleased with the purchase and for the price I am very happy with the quality of the product. Dimensions: Since the monitor does not come with an adjustable stand, here are some measurements that might help you determine if you might want to purchase a separate stand. The height from the desk to the bottom edge of the monitor is 3 1/2" and the height from the desk to the bottom edge of the viewable screen is 4 1/4". The monitors width is 21 1/4 and the height from desk to top edge of monitor is 16 1/4. Initial impressions The monitor comes in a basic cardboard box with black graphics but nothing over the top. I am satisfied with the standard foam protection packaging, which is wrapped in plastic, for the pricing point. The assembly process was simple, and the item was assembled with no trouble. There are two HDMI connections but they are neither marked. Is HDMI one or two? You left out small details to squeeze into the price bracket it is in. Its not a big deal and its unlikely that you will ever look at it again. Fortunately, I did not notice any dead or stuck pixels during the setup. I was able to adjust the brightness by playing around. The settings menu has a lot of depth and I set mine to Gaming. The only negative point that I have to make is that when playing video, the number sixty jumps up in the top right hand corner of the screen. I do not know why they did this, but I have gotten used to it. Another feature I do not use is the monitor comes with built in crosshairs that you can turn on with a couple different versions. I am nearing completion of yet another playthrough of the Mass Effect trilogy, and the game play has been spectacular. From playing on an older Sony Bravia HDTV to this, it does feel more responsive. The way cut scenes are in games may relate to the settings of the gamer mode. I have been using the monitor exclusively for the Xbox One. Ive not been able to say for certain how well it looks. I believe this is a superb monitor for the price and Im very satisfied with its performance.
The price range for these monitors can be decided on by a budget. I have been using them both on PC and console. I like the color they are made of. I have owned Acer monitors before, and these have the best color out of all Acer ones I have tried before. The refresh rate is good for the price. The primary focus is color. It may be necessary for you to make some adjustments. I have owned two for six months.
At the time of purchase, on September 19, this was the only 144hz IPS 1080p display for under $200.
I purchased numerous monitors in the past few months, and then returned them because of a defect. I did not know that nowadays, buying a monitor is a difficult task to achieve a flawless screen without bleeding or dead pixels. My initial purchase of a monitor did not turn it on. The second and third one had ghosting in the right corner of the screen, and the forth one had a small ghosting spot on the top of the monitor. Now it is the fifth one. I have not spotted any ghosting, or glow. I discovered something that looks like a small speck of dust in the top part of the screen. It's almost a dead pixel. I initially believed it was dirt on the screen that would not wipe away. I am inquiring about returning it or dealing with it, because I do not want to take a chance in getting a better one. Is it so hard to find a perfect screen? The updated November 27 2019 screen from Amazon has been released. It is a good monitor, if you can get it without dead pixels, or anything else.
I have had a few monitors that are 144hz recently, but this is the one that really stands out to me. Some VA panel monitors did not seem to work properly. The TN panels suffer from poor viewing angles, color and even banding issues. Oh, and it was an excellent price at under $200. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a 1080P 144hz monitor.
Samsung SE200 Series 21.5 inch FHD 1920x1080 Desktop Monitor for Business with DVI, VGA, VESA mountable, 3-Year Warranty, TAA (S22E200B)
WHAT WE LIKED MOST:
The device consists of two cables display port to display port, power cable, and headphone to headphone cable. It is advisable to use heaphones with a satisfying frame rate, since the speakers on the monitor are small tweeters. When it's 60Hz, it seems smoother. The mouse cursor moves more smoothly, videos play better, and games play better. Selecting from a Samsung 4K monitor that runs at 60Hz will make getting more frames more satisfying. Then returning to Full HD is no problem. I do not miss the 4K feature. I am particularly fond of the monitor since it can save up to 70% of my card's memory when I am playing the same game at 144 fps. I never want to play 60Hz games again. I think the games were meant to be played this way. I am using the Nvidia GTX 1050 2GB with this and it works with low settings and medium post processing. Do I get full 144 frames per second? The system is not 100% efficient, but at the very least, it is around 70 percent. I only praise 144Hz gaming. It does improve the gaming experience. That is due to less eye strain.
I really love this monitor, but it is not the highest quality and it is only 1080p. The price to play in 4K is much higher. I am enjoying the 144MHz speed, price and overall appearance. I love that stand because it does not move or rattle. This is probably the best stand I have ever had for a monitor. It's small borders around the screen mean it's not massive and does not take up a lot of space on your desk. I find it annoying when the screen is adjusted to the top of the stand and the power light beams me in the eye. It is easy to fix, cover it with a piece of duct tape, and it will help to see it better. I set it once and I never touched it again, so no problem with it. If you go to the Advanced Settings, you can bump it to 144 and also need a DP cable, which will connect to the HDMI output at 120. I have a monitor with everything I wanted from a monitor and I haven't noticed any eye strain from long sessions of use. The cost makes it even more attractive. Come on, people who gave it one star for a white screen. It happened if you got a bad unit and they replaced it under warranty. If you are like me, who checks 50 different items trying to decide, buy this one because it is great. It is still going strong. It is the best monitor that I have ever purchased and has 1080p resolution. There is not a single dead pixel, no flashing, and it is brighter than my Dell DG2716. The white is more true.
The video is very nice. I have a small budget for a monitor with 1440p and 4k, plus the extra expense to purchase one. I can max out all settings on this monitor. It is buttery smooth at 144Hz refresh and 1ms response. Acer is still manufacturing quality monitors that can be purchased for as little as 200 dollars.
If you are experiencing difficulty, for example if you are not getting 144hz, right click on the desktop and select 'Display Settings'. Scroll down and select Advanced display settings. Now select 'Display adapter properties for display X', where X is the display the Acer monitor is at. Choose the Monitor tab, and change the screen refresh rate to 144 Hertz. If you are unable to receive a signal, try updating your drivers and selecting Apply, and then selecting OK. If you have a Nvidia card then open GeForce Experience to update your drivers. If it still does not work, purchase a new DisplayPort cord and see if it works. Other than that, you might have to call Amazon or Acer. I was referring to an 8 year old 60hz monitor, but boy are they correct when they say that it is smooth like butter. I formerly owned a 1920x1080 60hz 22inch monitor and I upgraded to this 1920x1080 144hz 24inch monitor. It is noticeable at two inches. It is easy to move around, and the up-down motion is ridiculously smooth. It is easy to move forward and out, yet it does not listen to gravity and slow down. I am very happy with my purchase. What an improvement.
I decided to discover the information that I wanted to find. It appeared very good initially, but I was skeptical after reading other reviews because I fear I would regret purchasing it. People had mentioned that they have dead pixels, washed out colors, and black/white screens. However, the large amount of positive reviews just made me want it even more. After receiving this monitor and testing it out, it did not disappoint. I first connected the monitor to my computer using HDMI. It can handle speeds of 48 and 120 hz. However, I realized that I was not utilizing the monitor to its full potential, so I purchased a USB type C to DP cable and voila! Once I reach 144 GHz, I can tell you, you will definitely not want to drop back to 60 GHz. I paired it with my older Acer KG221Q monitor to get a nice dual monitor setup and it looks wonderful. The monitor is 24", therefore it makes sense that the pixels will be stretched slightly, compared to the 24 standard, 1440p, 60hz monitor. This is not a problem for me because I am not sitting two inches away from my screen. It is not noticeable when doing normal tasks such as gaming, work, etc. Remember that the refresh rate is 144hz. Go to settings, and then set the refresh rate to 144 hz. You need to use the display port to get full 144hz, but HDMI will only give you 120hz, and that is if you have an HDMI cable that supports that bandwidth.'
SunFounder Raspberry Pi Display 13.3 Inch IPS Portable 2 HDMI Monitor 1920x1080 Gaming Monitor for Ps4 Raspberry Pi WiiU Xbox 360 Windows 7/8/10
WHAT WE LIKED MOST:
It is a nice monitor and is the best I have used. I upgraded my three year old Windows 7 64bit Dell to Windows 10 to get the touch features. The screen looked great but a touch did not work initially. Acer telephoned for a prompt response and a friendly technician spent about an hour updating drivers and later realized that I had not connected the second cable. The instructions are a little fuzzy as if they were translated from another language. My monitor has a USB cable that connects to a computer and the monitor itself, which is a very odd connection. The technician noted that the other end is called 1800mm and it looks like two smaller boxes on top of each other. I cannot order the six foot version because the four foot cable is not quite long. The part number was on Amazon and available for Europe delivery. So I ordered a USB extension cable instead.
I purchased this monitor with the expectations of using the multitouch capability to control my DAW software. I have had this monitor only for a day, and I can already tell this is a great addition to my sound production suite.Using this touchscreen in combination with the mouse and keyboard really has the potential of increasing workflow a great deal. I purchased a new computer on Windows 10, and I was able to utilize the full multitouch function in my Sonar Cakewalk DJ. It acts as a control surface on a DAW. For me, this is much more versatile and cheaper than purchasing a hardware controller.
I took a risk because this is a very recent product from Acer and there was not much written about it. My intended applications are Digital Audio and Photo Processing. The colors and contrast are awesome. Also, it's very responsive as a touch screen. I am very happy with the picture quality. The screen was delivered with the image set to vivid. The instructions are minimal and the speakers are awful, good enough for web browsing. It is a great stand, which is sturdy, and the camera is also great for web conferencing. I like to put my screens up high to minimize neck or back strain, so I purchased the Ergotron LX Desk Mount LCD Arm, Tall Pole, 45-295-026 at the same time I purchased the monitor. I used the monitor stand for a day or so before I installed the Ergotron. I could not find instructions on how to remove the Acer stand once the Ergotron was attached, but I knew it was possible because of the additional plastic cover supplied by Acer. Simply grab the black plastic cover over the arm hinge and pinch. The hinge cover will expose the four screws which are holding the arm together. The arm comes off after you remove the screws. It costs approximately $900 to install a monitor. It is worth it because of the image quality.
I like this monitor, and I knew it was connected to both HDMI and USB cables in order to get the touch function working. However, it's a touch screen and it's angled slightly upward. As a result, it's adjusted more upward. I sit lower than the monitor, so it is advantageous to have a slightly downward angle. I wedged something underneath the stand in order to tilt it slightly downward. The color is perfect and reacts well to color adjustments. The only game available on the 27inch touchscreen is the one I can recall. It works well, and looks great.
ASUS VE248H 24" Full HD 1920x1080 2ms HDMI DVI VGA Back-lit LED Monitor
WHAT WE LIKED MOST:
My 2007 monitor finally passed away and I needed a replacement. They have good features and a good price. I believed the brightest contrast was a little high, out of the box. I'm sure I can adjust it to more appropriate level for my taste. All of which is a quality unit at a good price. It is easier than it sounds but it is not optimal.
I use gaming and my time to play games and develop my games. It is much nicer than the 20inch scepter I had. I love it better then the one I already have.
I am concerned about the reliability of the power cord. It is probably okay if you leave the unit plugged in the same most of the time. However, if you need to set up in different locations, so it gets flexed a lot, it may not hold up.
I used it for more than a month. Everything is working very well. The power button is in the back and kind of small, the sound of the speaker is very tiny, I have my own external speakers, the stand is not very sturdy. The price for the Sceptre monitor is not expensive compared to other brands. It's still a good value purchase.
ASUS VN279QL 27" Full HD 1920x1080 DisplayPort HDMI VGA Ergonomic Monitor
WHAT WE LIKED MOST:
This multitouch monitor has a nice ten point display and works well with Windows 10 and Android X86. I followed the instructions and installation was straightforward. My only complaint is more of a design flaw. I have mine attached to a multiarticulated VESA monitor mount. The connector area on the monitor is an indention that is 2 3/4 inches tall and 1 1/2 inches deep. It seems like the cable management system is bundled together underneath the monitor. Straight power and USB cables pulled tension on the plugs when they were bundled. I replaced the included cables with angled power and angled USB cables. Even without bundling the cables, there is barely enough space in the plug area for straight cables. The included pictures show the angled plugs.
My computer had two monitors on it and I bought two of these to match. I was mistaken because I thought I had HDMI out on my computer, but I didn't. I have DVI and VGA video outputs. I possess a video capture card that utilizes the HDMI video input. I've had to purchase an adapter cable that connects DVI to HDMI after some time. I really enjoy these new monitors I have both connected to a VGA and the other to a DVI cable. I cannot say which one is better. While I have seen all the complaints, I did not receive a single complaint. They are extremely impressive, just plug and play. It is more affordable, for less than a hundred dollars each, and there are definitely the four tiny screw holes on the back so you can mount these to an arm. They had rubber plugs in them. Pull the plugs, and then insert the screws. I had to buy longer screws for these monitors. The plastic on the back seems to be a little thicker than the monitors I have owned. The screw size of 4 x 16 was excellent. If you purchase one, I do not believe you will regret it.
I used this as a smart wall for the kitchen in combination with a Windows PC stick. It is VESA mounted with M4 screws. There was no additional setup required. Beyond making physical connections between the monitor and the PC. The display features a highly precise, responsive input device.
I bought this monitor in order to use it as a second monitor for gaming with my laptop, and I absolutely love it. I ordered this product for the price. I was expecting that there would be some minor to moderate issues due to the low price. The value this screen provides for such a low price shocked me. The picture is bright, crisp, and vibrant. It was very easy to use. The monitor does have builtin speakers, and while the sound quality is nothing to write home about, they work perfectly for what I need. My wife, a professional photographer, uses it for editing her projects, and says the color and detail are great for her needs as well. I will definitely be buying another of these because I need a third monitor soon.
I noticed the packaging, which was excellent. So I unpacked it, plugted it into my small laptop (Acer Aspire) and checked out a number of saved videos I have. My only pet peeve are dead or constantly turned on pixels. This picture is great, there are no dead pixels. I used my Panasonic RP HT360 with a very long cord. The speakers are only 2.5 watts. The speaker comes with a fivefoot (6foot) hi-res connector. But I own a 10-foot long one. Because of the monitor's HDCP, I am able to play Bluray movies straight from my Sony Bluray player, and it is running properly. Additionally, it is used as a monitor for my Mac Mini. It is excellent quality for a $99 monitor. The first version was released in 2019 and is quite recent.

WHAT WE LIKED MOST:
I needed to find a monitor in my server closet, however, some size restrictions required me to search for something that could support VGA and HDMI while still offering a decent resolution. It was simple I did not require anything fancy since it was being used only when the material hit the fan and I was merely looking for information on what the server was doing. It has three video connections, one of which is HDMI, another VGA, and the last is composite. It also comes with a remote control, but I personally will not use it. I mounted the remote control on the back of the monitor using Velcro, so I may use it in the event I need it. Initially, the monitor did not display an image. However, that was because I had both the HDMI and Composite cable plugged in. Once I removed the composite cable, the HDMI display displayed correctly. I enjoy this monitor and I hope it lasts.
The displays features good viewing angles, no dead pixels, and come with a power supply, a kind of Raspberry Pi 3 case for mounting it on the backside, an HDMI cable, and a remote that, in all honesty, I rarely use. I only spent several minutes in order to install the Pi 3 onto the back, connect the device to the computer and boot everything. Due to the built in legs, the viewing tilt is fixed. It is exactly the right angle on my desk so it works for me. Additionally, the standard resolution of the monitor is 1024x600, which is not native to Raspbian, which sets the resolution at 1024x768. This squashes things slightly. I changed the settings in the config.txt file. If you do not want to do that then the next best option is to set the resolution to 1280x720 in the Raspberry Pi Configuration options. This display allows me to set up different builds such as RetroPie on my desktop PC. It is small but it scales correctly. I got it because it is doing well and fulfilling its intended purpose.
I purchased a head unit replacement to use in my car, together with Pi running my tuning software for the car. I jumped when I ordered my stuff and realized after assembly that this unit does not have touch. The screen, though it is supposed to be 1024x600, will not fit 1024x600, it is boxed leaving side to side. It has a resolution of 1280x720. The loss is less if you go higher than that. It is a really nice display, a 1024x576 size, and I am content as others have mentioned. The plastic is cheap so the best part is that I am happy with it.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tiniest product, and found it adequate for the cost and size of the unit. I bought it to have a suitable little monitor for my Raspberry Pi, and it will work fine for learning and playing around with it. I thought it seemed a bit absurd that it had a remote, but when I tried to press the buttons on it, I realized it would much better to just use the remote. The instrument does tilt, and is able to be adjusted and fixed into position.
