Summary: The matte screen, the silver slivers, the subtle power LED, the thin bezels... This monitor looks amazing. The panel, however, is an embarrassment. Yes, the color reproduction is great, and the screen produces quite the rich library of hues. With its 5ms refresh rate, I'd expect it to be similar in performance to my previous $110 TN panel, but instead, this one leaves trails when dealing with moving objects.
Summary: This is a beautiful monitor when it works. I have had it for two weeks now and the monitor is constantly turning itself off, requiring you to remove power from it in order to reset it. It also seems that the OSD "buttons" are activated randomly. Suddenly, without warning the display will change inputs, open the menu, shut off and require you to cycle the power in order to get it responsive again. I would avoid this model.
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: I've had this monitor for nine months now and although I was very pleased with the overall look and performance I've recently begun to notice a lot of screen burning, especially on the left half of the screen, which is now beginning to affect my viewing pleasure. Stupidly, I didn't register my product so I am probably not entitled to a replacement/refund.
