I am loving the Auria so far. No problems at all, no dead or stuck pixels, and it looks fantastic. I am extremely happy with my purchase. As for the stand, its not horrible but its not very good either. The monitor clicks in the stand nicely and feels solid, however it only sits about 2 inches off of the desk and it has no height adjustment. It does tilt though. Getting a dvi cable in the back once it is in the stand takes some work.
Thx, I love that background, cant wait for season 3 of GOT.
Your stand looks identical to the one on my Qnix QX2700. I was able to raise my monitor about two inches by removing the stand arm from the back of the panel, removing the attach plate/bracket from the back of the panel and turning it 180 deg. The point where the arm attaches to the monitor is offset from center of the bracket, and seems the builder defaults to the lower setting.
Very happy with my Qnix so far -- have the DVI-D only version.
