Its great!

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Using this with a GTX 970 and for most games I get 60FPS average on V.high/Ultra settings at 1080p with this monitor; its looks amazing. if this is at a discount price its a good little pick up.
  • Pros: It came here and had 0 dead pixels and no ghost that I've seen. The monitor works fine for gaming and video watching, at 1080p at least.
  • Cons: I hate glossy finishes, and I wish they didn't put one on the stand or the monitor bezel. Matte black or brushed metal would have made it feel more quality. Although it may have an affect on price, so I understand.

  • Summary: if you get these for less than 150, you're getting a good value. Wait till they're on sale.
  • Pros: Looks nice, both screen and bezel matte screen, less glare decent stands for the price Good gaming performance got two at a killer price generally well-functioning
  • Cons: colors don't match with identical DVI connections and settings. It's barely noticeable unless you have white pages on both screens, but then it's super obvious. this is the only reason I deducted an egg but at $129 each I am not going to act like I expected total perfection.

  • Summary: How am I to know what the actual measurements of the screen are going to be when I order a monitor. I may return this one for a cash return, I still have a few days to decide and my desire was to get a larger USEABLE viewing space.
  • Pros: Very clear text and "edges". Colors are true and bright. The blacks seem to be deep and white is pure. There was NO setup required plugged it in to windows 7 and GO! I don't see any dead pixels (yet).
  • Cons: I bought this 23" monitor to replace my dead 22" monitor. I was looking forward to the slightly larger useable screen space. I don't have it! Although the diagonal is 1" greater the vertical size of the screen (11 1/4") is 1/2" LESS than the old monitor (11 3/4)! The wide screen is of NO use unless I were to watch movies on it, and I have a TV for that purpose. My 19" Dell monitor has more useable space (by a large margin!), with 12" vertical!

Use your video card color settings to make this monitor look great.

  • Summary: Very good monitor for the price. The color on this monitor will be much better if you use your video card settings and not the color settings built into the monitor. I have two of these and the color was not so good using the built in settings but once I switched over to the video card settings the color diff is night and day.
