We have this monitor and it's really good. Calibration wasn't too bad right out of the box at all. Would recommend, especially at this low price.
Flicker free? What does that mean exactly? Most new monitors refresh so quickly that it's imperceptible. Also, can't monitors be adjusted to make them more red using software like f.lux?

Some use PWM. They flicker.

1080p over 28" is a very poor resolution for a monitor. I wouldn't.
Ace thanks - perfect for a second screen for TV/films/iPlayer (yes media stacking)

I personally wouldn't either but my wife has one and she's very happy with the results and someone that types lots of letters, spreadsheets and games and any higher resolution wouldn't work for her and her eyes.

Text-heavy work is where high resolution monitors shine. The rendering of characters looks much better at 1440/4k, which makes documents far more pleasant to look at. Go and look at how ugly a 1:1 representation of an a4 page looks on her 28" 1080p monitor, and compare that with a 4k panel in Currys, and you'll see the difference.

But she's happy and she doesn't have great eyesight so lower 'full hd' resolutions are fine. If she had a 4k screen she'd crank up the zoom to see the characters and end up with Lego-vision

I personally think a 5:4 screen or a flipable widescreen is actually the best for a word document but that's another thing entirely.

Will this work with an Xbox?
