Pros: The monitor looks great and it has plenty of inputs on the back. I was happy with it for a couple of days before realizing the one glaring problem with it.
Cons: This monitor seems to have an issue with bleeding on the corners. When there is a black background in a dark room you can clearly see light bleeding from all four corners. This in my opinion is unacceptable. I returned my first one, thinking that the bleeding was caused by water damage, but the replacement had the same exact issue. I returned the second one as well.
Cons: This is the second one I have and I had to send it back for a refund. The first one had only one dead white on black pixel and a ton of light bleed on the lower left hand corner. The replacement had 3 white deal pixels in the middle of the screen that are very noticeable and the light bleed was less but still objectionable to me.
Summary: I am pretty sure that monitor has given me the hardest time to date of any monitor. Firstly I was unable to get it running at 2560 x 1080 on the DVI-D port, so had to switch to hdmi (luckily I have one on my PC, although my old monitor was on the DVI-D). Trying to switch input e.g. from DVI-D to HDMI, involves navigating through on-screen menus using the tiny, virtually hidden, touch sensitive buttons located under the lower edge of the display - not that easy a task I...

Summary: Picture was crisp, clear and colour excellent - The buttons to move from function to function were under the screen and quite fiddly and annoying It didn't pick up the computer or other devices plugged in automatically - I would have expected it to - All that we could have lived with because of the picture quality but when we connected the VESA mount to attach it to a stand, we couldn't access the power plug or the HDMI inputs - Thus had to return it!
Installation Issues with MacBook Pro Retina - Blurry/Jagged Fonts

Summary: This monitor has a good build quality and a good spec but setting it up with a MacBook Pro Retina was a real pain. Firstly none of the supplied cables would work correctly and give the right resolution. The DVI interface to mini displayport on the Mac would only give 1960 resolution so everything was stretched oddly. The HDMI port would not work at all.
Really good monitor but please read before you buy it if you are a mac user

Summary: The monitor is really great on a mas you need to buy a display port adapter to mini display port adapter but the clarity suffers The best way ahead with this was with an hdmi cable but then again it only supported 1920 x1080p The only way to use the full resolution was to use a software called SwitchRes X but you have to know what you are doing. this article will help you use it https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4672999?
