Great display unit for any computer; especially a great add on to my Mac Book Pro display.

  • Summary: I bought this monitor used; it came well protected in bubble wrap and it came quick. Works like a new monitor and is great for enlarging my MAC BOOK PRO display

Three years of excellence

Daniel A., Newegg

  • Summary: DisplayPort is THE way to go for signal input - DVI will work as well, but the DisplayPort cable is simpler, smaller, and more future-proof in that regard. At this point, I feel like 1440p is still preferable to 4k, since most applications don't do a great job of scaling beyond 1080p, so 1440p works...
  • Pros: 1440p, Efficient power use, Precise color reproduction. When I first purchased this monitor, I was worried if I would have been better off going with a triple-1080p setup for immersive gaming and multitasking oriented programming and CAD/CAM work - but this monitor has proved I had the right idea...
  • Cons: Sometimes the ECO sensor gets confused with various light conditions; the menu options to nudge the brightness up quickly isn't that convenient. 1440p is still taxing on most GPU setups (but still more forgiving than 4k)

  • Excerpt: We purchase a Samsung HDTV at Sears a few months ago. It is so amazing at how more detailed this tv shows the shows, colors and it is so detailed! There was a lot of things to learn about it. We first got it and had …

Very happy with it

  • Summary: One of the best monitors I've ever seen. Matte finish to reduce glare. 2560 x 1440 resolution. I'm using it as a second screen for my new MacBook Pro, and it looks a lot better (aside from being much larger) than the retina display of the MacBook.

A very nice display.

  • Summary: PROS: The image quality is excellent. The color is rich, I cannot discern any difference in accuracy between this and my 27-inch Apple Thunderbolt display. This works very well with my mid-2012 MacBook pro.

Awesome and Bright!

Kevin H., Newegg
14 March 2014
  • Summary: Overall I'm pretty impressed with the build and video quality. I bought two of them for my desktop setup. The transition from dual DVI to dual Displayport was a bit bumpy and isn't really the fault of the monitors.
  • Pros: Very sharp and bright. Contrast is decent. Colours look plenty saturated. Games are a lot nicer on a bigger screen, also. TF2 and Portal 2 ran great and looked wonderful. The power hookup was a bit new to me, since my old monitors had the power supply built in, and these use a "line lump" that cl...
  • Cons: The power bricks run warm, a bit warmer than I'd like. Also, I can really notice "Haidinger's Brush" on this monitor, but it appears to be the brightness and is not really a fault of the monitor. (*-Haidinger's Brush is a phenomena where the human eye can weakly see polarization of light) I might...
