    How good / reliable is this model. Is it energy efficient? I am thinking of going dual screens. Will a AMD 7850 handle 2 of these screens?

    •  

      It's a monitor, it's not something that will suffer a lot of abuse during use so it should be fine.

      Dual screen is great for productivity, I've always found it helpful to have dual screens.

      7850 should be fine for dual screens, as should all modern graphics cards.

      The monitor is nothing special, you get what you pay for. I don't know about energy efficiency but it should be relatively low if you just browse the internet etc.

      As for the 7850, it can certainly handle two monitors but NOT particularly well if you are planning to game on both of them. It'll be more than fine for videos and such. Hope that helps.

          What makes a monitor special?

          • Panel type (VA, IPS or PLS)
          • Resolution and aspect ratio (1920 x 1200, 2560 x 1080, 2560 x 1440)
          • Refresh rate (120Hz, 144Hz)
          • Colour accuracy (high % of RGB and sRGB colour spaces)
          • Connections (DisplayPort)
          • Features like VESA mount-compatibility and included webcams, USB ports and microphones. Also there's obviously size and reliability.

          This is a basic 1920 x 1080 TN panel.

    This hardly has anything to do with the monitor; but does anyone have a clue what MSY actually stands for?

    That is the crappest monitor ever. I bought two, dead pixels galore. It should be that price anyway.

    •  

      So they are not reliable out of the box…but once you had them swapped over and working, how is it?

  •  

    Acer……no thanks :-)

    but still, thanks for sharing the deal!

  •  

    I think MSY have a dead pixcel garantee

    I think 3 of these rock for games but no up/down ajustment (alas)

    Pre-ordered one as soon as this deal came up. As soon as the store opened today they were "out of stock" despite the Cannington store saying they had stock on the website…
