Stay Away 7/10/2018 12:34:35 PM

Pros: Works so far. Color is nice.

Cons: None adjustable stand. Sets to low. Needs a adjustable stand. Went to web sight that that they provided for product registration. Could not find this monitor in there list. Maybe it needs to be updated? who knows? If the monitor is not covered through a warranty then why bother. Stay from this company. BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
