    ikan MS21 reviews

    MS21 21.5" SD/HD-SDI Studio Monitor is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Would not reccomend Issues with ghosting and reliability. This screen is a rebranded budget monitor.
    Date published: 2016-09-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Monitor For The Price The ikan MS21 is a good monitor for its price. I like that this monitor has a bunch of features like waveform and RGB parade. The monitor also has good picture quality. This is a high end monitor for a good price.
    Date published: 2016-12-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picture quality is great and it is packed with every feature I purchased this monitor because I needed a large professional monitor for my edit suite. Picture quality is great and it is packed with every feature under the sun! Most of them I probably wont use but its better to have them than not have them. The monitor definitely has a high quality feel to it. Nothing about this monitor feels budget.
