Summary: I went from a 24" to this 27". The picture quality was so inferior to the Gateway HD monitor that I had to send the monitor back. I spent 6 hours trying to get the color, gamma, and setting to look real but nothing would make this monitor work.
Summary: if you had nvdia don't get this one, this is design for ati user. this monitor is glossy screen, is heavy glossy, great for movie and games, but terrible for text and picture edit. not sure is the ati fault or the monitor, too much ghosting issue from many 3d games.
