Summary: This was a special warehouse purchase that was reported to have a slightly damaged box and a blemish on the case of the unit for a reduced price. I could care less about the box or a blemish on the case.

Summary: Rating this a 1 egg because for me this monitor might as well be dead or broken, because the rainbow effect/ color bleed drives my eyes crazy. Others have said a lot about the Color banding. So here is the deal: Out of the box it's bad, really bad.
Pros: Swivels and tilt Works great minimal backlight bleed. ability to turn power led on and off. forte app works well for making the most of the monitor. low input lag no ghosting

Cons: After a couple weeks of use, a large (1 inch wide) section of the screen will turn blue, and distort everything displayed in it. I know it isn't the graphics card, because when the computer is off the stripe appears on the monitors boot logo screen.
Excerpt: Ich war bisher der Ansicht, man kann nicht allzu viel falsch machen, wenn man sich ein neues Gerät kauft - dazu noch beim ortsansässigen Computerspezialist. Nun, inzwischen bin ich sowohl von meinem Bildschirm als auch von meinem tollen Computerspezialist etwas enttäuscht.
Pros: Bildqualität in Ordnung, solange der Bildschirm funktioniert
Cons: Weniger als ein halbes Jahr Standzeit ist inakzeptabel
