Excerpt: It’s a shame to test an LCD monitor that’s able to create sharp whites and rich blacks, only to watch it struggle to display common color gradients. And it’s downright frustrating given our benchmarking process. We first test a display’s ability to produce detail in blacks and whites.

Pros: Hits dark and light extremes; includes a wonderful number of connection options.
Cons: Severe banding and coloration issues destroy any and all picture integrity.
