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. I even tried buying a very high end graphics card but that didn't help either. The monitor is beautiful to look at but the fact is the monitor lacks the quality picture that it really needs to compete with the big boys.
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. the build in 3d doesn't work that well. 3d is stil too early stage, also anothe rproblem is the resolution 1080p in 27" is too stretch, big issue in bios. text appear too big.
