From the get-go, this 20in monitor's image quality looked impressive, but tests with DisplayMate highlighted a couple of issues with its greyscale and black level.
In DisplayMate, the greyscale tests showed a slight hint of yellow and purple discolouration, which became more noticeable as the tests progressed, but it wasn't something that obviously stood out when viewing colour photographs and movies. In fact, viewing photos on this monitor was a pleasure and all of our test files were displayed with excellent contrast and detail. In DisplayMate, the colour scale was consistent from the lightest level down to the darkest level, but we did find the black level to be a tad pale.
In a dark environment, a completely black screen had a very slight hint of purple to it. The white level was bright and consistent, but we did have to make some adjustments to the luminance in order to get rid of some blown-out light colours in photographs. This was also shown in DisplayMate, where the Extreme greyscale test struggled to display the lightest grey colour on a white background and the darkest grey colour on a black background.
For watching movies and playing games, this screen is adequate, but it's best-suited to an office environment. Its stand is height-adjustable, it can swivel as well as tilt, and the screen can be rotated to a portrait position. This makes it suitable for viewing long documents and Web pages. However, the screen can be viewed comfortably only from shallow viewing angles, as the text gets muddy the more obtuse the angle becomes. In portrait view, this could be an issue unless the screen is perfectly tilted. The screen's on-screen display is intuitive and the controls are well laid out and easy to use. A D-sub input is present, as well as DVI, so that up to two PCs can be connected simultaneously. However, there isn't a dedicated button for switching inputs; it has to be done through the menu. Despite a couple of little problems with the greyscale and black level, this screen is worth considering, especially for an office environment.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
