Summary: I bought the monitor on 06/24/14 and it stopped working on 8/3/14. The monitor will not display there are lines all over the screen and you can't get into setup. I tried to exchange it and Amazon said it was past the cutoff date. I was leary about buying the last one they had but I thought I would take a chance. The date on the monitor is 3/13 it had been sitting for over a year in some warehouse.
Excellent monitor for the money - IF you like this form factor

Summary: Image quality and color fidelity are very good for this price point. I hear a lot of criticism of its vertical resolution, and complaints about the black bars and resolution support in some games. I had a 27" 16x9 monitor at home, and a dual 25" 16x9 setup at work. I replaced my home monitor with this one, and have no regrets.
Summary: Highly recommended. I use this as my main monitor connected to a Work Station and a Laptop. While the OSD can be inconvenient at times to switch, I have programmed Alt - 1: Laptop and Alt - 2: Work Station switching using Auto Hot Key program. Now I can switch between computers using these keyboard short cuts and it works wonderfully.
Summary: I bought this monitor from my friend, who decided to upgrade his monitor to a touch screen. This is actually a very good monitor with fantastic picture clarity, wide screen and no pixel at all, it also has built in USB3.0 hub.
Summary: If you get one, I highly recommend a second. Though I have to say, with that much screen space its sometimes hard to track down smaller notification windows. I keep them on non-stop and they often go 6 plus months before the color gets a little off, then leave them powered off for a couple minuets and they'll be right back to perfect color. I use them on the lowest back light setting and about 43% contrast. My os Linux Mint 16 handles them more or less flawlessly.
Summary: Bought this for my husband and he loves it. It is very wide screen and he usually has several programs up side by side to work on (at work he uses two wide screen monitors). He hooks his Surface to it with a DisplayPort and it looks great!
