Summary: The reviews don't give this monitor justice. I downgraded from 2 LG 27' IPS monitors. It was one of the best decision i made. These monitors look great for everyday use and gaming. The games seemed to move flawlessly. I don't understand the concern for the stand it comes with, it is sturdy and seems very durable. I have it on a solid surface and notice no movement of any kind. I am so impressed by this monitors, the toughest decision will be when to purchase a third one.
