Summary: Pros: It is vesa compatible, Came without any failed pixels, and it has a matte finish to both the screen and the frame. Cons: At it's brightest you get a dull grey color. this monitor CANNOT do a true white at all. Darkest is a deep grey, CANNOT do a true black. I have played with settings on the monitor as well as with my graphics adapter. I am running 2 way sli gtx 770 and neither the nvidia settings or the onboard intel can do a thing to help it out.
