Summary: Went from a 19inch old school monitor to this monitor and it was an entirely different world gaming. Great monitor and great features. I love having the choice of using DVI or HDMI to plug it in. I am very happy to own this monitor and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great monitor to use for either gaming and or watching movies. Its slim design sits great on my desk!
Summary: I am very happy with the quality and performance of this monitor. However, I have one suggestion: the connectors in back are very difficult to access. I'm sure these could be relocated with more direct output connectors.
Summary: This monitor replaced an older, small monitor. The difference is striking. The color & brightness are outstanding and the 16;9 ratio make it more convenient use for work. I can have multiple windows open and still see them all. It was a gift, so I can't factor in the cost, but the quality is certainly very good.
Summary: Had read about IPS being the best but it is only ok. Will see if this screen outlasts the Samsung that died within a year. Quality is ok but I had expected to be blown away. Not the case here. Maybe on another input. Also it doesn't have any HDMI sockets at all. Just the old VGA and the DVI and that's it. Can't hook up any audio to it (guess I'd have to run that thru the computer). It is a very nice size though. Don't know if I would purchase again.
Summary: Thoroughly disappointed with this screen. I "upgraded" from a 3 year old TN panel LG monitor. The negatives far outweigh the positives for me - 1. Bluish tint on the right edge (visible on a white background, eg: viewing webpages) 2. Back light bleed on the top edge. On a dark screen, eg: watching a movie, you can see what looks like 3 spotlights on the top edge. The leftmost one is bright and distracting. 3.
Summary: I couldn't be more happy with this monitor. The picture is outstanding - the colors are accurate, black is nice and deep all with way to the edges. The screen is very bright even when brightness is set to less than 100% (100% is the default setting). I'm using this monitor as a 2nd monitor - it uses 1/3 the power of the old LCD monitor it sits next to (33W vs 100W) yet is just as bright.
Excerpt: Больше года пользуюсь дома и около полу-года на работе такой же стоит, оба работают без нареканий. Фильмы смотреть теперь одно удовольствие, особенно в кампании, потому что даже при больших углах просмотра нет искажений как на TN матрицах. Про время отклика везде по-разному написано, но ни в фильмах, ни в играх не замечал следов-призраков.
Pros: Нет ступенчатости в полутонах, широкие углы обзора, сочные и правильные цвета.
Cons: Небольшая фиолетовая засветка по краям экрана если на экране тёмная картинка.
