Summary: I was doing a lot of research for a while before making this purchase for a new monitor. I upgraded from a 6-7 year old 22" monitor to this. The second that you plug this in and start loading windows you notice the difference right away. The resolution is a solid figure for gaming and the customizable refresh rate (where you can set it to either 60, 100, 120, 144) gives it a nice feel for whatever you are into.
ALL my gaming up until this moment now feels empty...

Summary: This monitor has CHANGED MY LIFE. Never again will i be able to go back to 60Hz or even 120Hz this makes EVERYTHING you do at 144Hz feel smooth like a baby's borttom. Even Windows Aero things look ridiculously smooth at 144fps. Games like CounterStrike (Source and Global Offensive) need a monitor like this, even in Battlefield 4 I am starting to WIN gunfights that I would have normally lost, my sniping has improved TENFOLD.
Summary: Fantastic. I was nervous about ordering a $300 monitor, but it's worth it. Build quality, picture quality, features... off the charts. When gaming, for instance in Metro Last Light, black areas are actually black on screen (perfect contrast). Color depth is the best you will find on an LED. 144hz has brought me back to the goodness that we used to have with CRT monitors, everything is so smooth. Highly recommended.
Summary: This is a great product very easy to setup; however, the power button is not as responsive as I'd like. I had to use my thumb or palm to turn the monitor which isn't very natural for me since my natural inclination is to use my index finger.
Summary: I bought this monitor a few days after buying my xbox one. May I say that it makes everything look 100 times better and has boosted my KD on call of duty ghosts from 1.5 to 2.5. No joke, this monitor made a bigger difference than the xbox one itself (which I also love). This monitor was easy to set up, looks awesome, and if you can catch it on sale a GREAT value.
Summary: Up till now I've been using cheap monitors that didn't do my graphics cards justice. And apparently the desktop image that I've been using for years had stars and I didn't even know that until I plugged this monitor in. But the best part is my games have never looked so good... I might just have to start over and put another 300 hours into Skyrim.
Pros: - 120hz, - crazy vibrant colours, - Tilts and swivels easily, - No tools required to attach the monitor to the base., - Remote thingy for switching settings at the push of a button.
Cons: - Took a bit to get it to turn on… something with the power button maybe?
Summary: This monitor lives up to EVERY word it speaks. I swear this is the best (gaming) monitor I have ever owned or even used. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has the money saved up and is serious about graphic performance (no so much color). Cons: As you've probably heard if you've been doing research about this monitor, it does have a problem displaying colors accurately.
Summary: First thing I noticed about this monitor is that it is BRIGHT, by far the brightest monitor I've ever used. Games are super smooth and blur free, the 144hz and incredibly low input lag make this the ideal monitor for FPS games. I was playing Metro Last Light earlier today and it look stunning. For anything with black text on a white background you'll probably want to turn the brightness down quite a bit, it's like staring at a light bulb if you don't.
