Summary: First off, this is a great multi-purpose monitor for the price. The display comes across clean and vibrant. Like the title states, I mostly use this for playing PC games such as Skyrim and the images look amazing with the CPU that I'm using. The monitor itself is very slim and light just like they advertise. What they don't tell you (and what is preventing me from rating this 5 stars) is that the base this monitor comes with is a little too slender.
Like the monitors, but had a small concern with build quality

Summary: I bought two of these monitors to connect to a Dell docking station. The set up easily, and look nice. Everything works as it was intended to. My only issue is that the plastic frame around the outside of the monitor pulls away from the screen a little as they're being handled. It doesn't impact performance at all, and now that it's set up, it will likely never be an issue, but it made me worry about the overall quality of the product.
Summary: I really like this monitor, a good improvement over the 6 year old 19" tv I was using as a monitor for my computer. I love that the resolution is a full 1920x1080, and it is a very sleek looking piece of hardware. I haven't found the bottom to be to spindly so as to not support it well enough, in fact I've knocked the table quite a few times and never worried about it tipping or wobbling a lot.
Summary: Many pointed out that these monitors don't have a very stable base and that is true but I don't have an issue with that because my monitors are stationary and that never presents a problem for me. They are incredibly light and slim, have a sleek design and have a great resolution. I got two of them for $260.
Summary: I'm using this monitor as a 2nd monitor on my 2011 iMac. It works great and the picture is clear! I do a lot of work in Adobe Illustrator and some programming in Perl and R, so having a 2nd monitor is a big help. A quality monitor is a big asset especially when doing work in Illustrator and R. I'm very pleased with the picture on this monitor. TIP FOR MAC USERS: I found the colors a bit washed out (under-saturated) using the factory settings.
Summary: Pros: Full HD 1920x1080 resolution shows great detail, text and images are crisp and clear, anti-glare coating is very effective and reduces eye strain, fast 2ms grey-to-grey response eliminates ghost images in fast moving images, DVI to HMDI adapter is included with package, slim and attractive appearance, LED-lit design uses less energy and lasts longer than other LCD back lights, low power design runs very cool compared to 26" LCD on my workstation.
Summary: Purchased this place of a similar IPS monitor for faster response time. All the other monitors within this price range had vibrant, clipped colors. Not this monitor - in fact from a percecptual standpoint, this monitor conveyed CIE spectrum remarkably well. The purple line wavelengths appear really balanced. Monitors cannot produce short wavelengths and instead generate them by combining red and blue. Many LCDs will gravitate towards the extremes to "round off" purples.
