Rated 5 out of 5 by LILarry Great - especially for the price
First - I don't know why someone gave this monitor one star with no explanation (I hate when people do that), but there is no reason for it. I gave this monitor 5-stars because it is great, it is inexpensive and because I am assuming that the issue I write about below is merely a defect in one of the units I received (which can happen with the best of electronics). You should also know that I've been working with computers and video for decades and I think I know my way around this stuff.
Are these top of the line monitors? No - but they're darn close, and you are going to pay double or more for anything better. More importantly, unless you are an extremely serious geek, or you do extremely critical professional level graphics work, you will likely never see any difference.
I ordered two of these for my dual monitor gaming/business computer. They're light and sleek, bright and the image is excellent. DVI, VGA and HDMI ports make hookup a snap.
One issue: One of the monitors I received has a faint blueish tint that is noticeable on whites when compared to the other monitor (which is right next to it). I can't adjust it out. I've ordered a replacement and will be returning the "blueish" one to my local Walmart store (that's what's great about ordering this kind of stuff through Walmart - try returning something to any other online site!) The lesson here is to be cautious about this monitor if you are doing anything on a professional level that is color critical. If not, you'll likely not notice this issue at all. (For what it's worth, I had a similar problem in the past with two "name brand" Acer monitors on a previous computer - so this is not an unusual issue).
Oh - and who is HKC? I never heard of them so I checked them out before I ordered. I was impressed. Look here: http://www.hkcelec.com/about.asp
Rated 4 out of 5 by DocLawlor Nice 1080p monitor
This is a nice LED monitor! Colors are bright without being oversaturated, and the screen doesn't reflect room light like some glossy screens. The gloss black bezel finish looks good without drawing your eye away from the content. The stand is not adjustable for height, and takes a screwdriver to assemble, but it tilts well, sits securely, and doesn't take much desk space.
The native resolution is 1080p (1920x1080), which is fine for a TV, but I'd have preferred a little more for a computer monitor. It can be fed by HDMI, DVI, or VGA inputs, and actually comes with power, DVI, and VGA cables.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kiramea Love it!
Did not realize this monitor is so big. I love being able to see everything without squinting. Color and clarity is sharp and have had no problems using it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by TJ39MSEE Beware, very unreliable
The monitor is made to accept a VGA, DVI, or a HMDI input. However, it comes ready for VGA so if you don't have a computer with a VGA output you won't be able to change the monitor to accept the other inputs. I am returning the second one of these monitors in less than two weeks. The first one when receiving a DVI input only had one resolution (800x600). The second one worked fine for about a week after I changed it to DVI. Then it went blank except for a message that read no VGA. It had returned itself to requiring a VGA input. When I tried to return it to a DVI input but it could not be changed to any input other than VGA. I spent several hours working with their support people trying to resolve the issues on both monitors. In both cases they told me to return the monitors. The only good thing that I can say is that the support people were very pleasant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Agaese awesome monitor
works great out of the box, had no dead pixels on arrival. Came with vga and dvi wires. playing games, watching videos, and just regular use is great on this monitor. For the Price and the size of this monitor great bang for buck.
Rated 4 out of 5 by ct762 very good monitor
Very clear, clean image. The monitor itself is great. Customer service doesn't answer emails, however. I was befuddled by the audio jack on the back and emailed CS to find out it's purpose. Never got an answer. The jack isn't mentioned in the manual or literature on their website. I don't seem to need it for normal operation as a computer monitor.
