Summary: I usually don't write reviews. However I have owned this monitor for about six months now, and everything was great. Very good picture quality, the framless design is very nice as well. However no the screen is beginning to become discolored on one side. If the background on the computer is black, you can see purple image burn. Not really sure how this happened. I am disappointed though. the amount of money I spent on the monitor, I would expect it to last a bit longer.
Why do I have to use VGA cable in order for the image to display on the whole screen?

Summary: Maybe it's just me. I couldn't get the monitor full screen (set at 1920 x 1080) while using the provided cable (HDMI to DVI). At first I thought it was something wrong with my video card or some adjustment that I need to do on the monitor in order to have the image to fill up the monitor (w/o the black border on all 4 sizes). Anyway, i couldn't. then I decide to use the VGA cable, voila, it works. But why? I feel like I have a lambo but I got forced to drive at 40 mph.
Summary: junk. Ever hear of the term "they don't make things like they used to". This monitor is the poster example. Pretty sad when this so called "new age, state of the art" item is repackaged and replaced by my old monitor (which is 5yrs old btw) which atLEAST has a 2ms response time. Shouldn't things look better wihen you "upgrade", not worse ?
Summary: I will just note a few problems with this device : * Light bleeding: not really annoying levels but it exists and you will see it * Ghosting: You don't have to play a game to see this problem. You may encounter artifacts while scrolling a page because of low refresh rate. Changing the "Trace Free" setting may help. * Sound interference: This one is rather interesting, I have never heard of such thing until now.
Summary: Purchased this Monitor to connect with my Macbook. With a Thunderbolt to HDMI cable it works perfectly! The Display looks incredible and there are no issues with light glare. The stand was easy to put together, I was able to put the monitor together in about 5 minutes! Picture quality is great, shows darks to lights very well! I am very pleased with this purchase and for the price there isn't a better deal! Highly recommended!!!
Summary: Was hesitant to buy these off amazon without seeing them in person. I love them, great picture so far work awesome for photo and video editing and on top of all that, I see absolutely no ghosting with video games. The buttons are a con, but once they are set up you should not have to really ever touch them, these use such little power while on I doubt they use a lot while in standby mode. So you should never need to manually turn them off.
