Excerpt: Viewable at many angles of view. Works seamlessly with Macbooks and PCs. Fast refresh and fine detail. Display port works well with Thunderbolt on Macs. The 2560 x 1440 IPS/PLS panel is truly beutiful. The On screen display is outdated but still easy to use.
Pros: All the connections options I could ever need, Beautiful Color Clarity, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Excellent For Photos Work, Great Picture Quality, LED-backlit, Photo Editing, Reduced Glare
The First LCD Display to Meet Photographer's Needs

Summary: I am a professional photographer and I want my display to show photos, not cartoon versions of photos. I find most LCD displays cartoonish. It amazes me that people gave up the subtlety of CRT displays for the fashion statement of LCDs. But I have to say, this one delivers. It captures the full dynamic range I enjoyed with good CRT displays. But with much larger resolution, size and brightness. It is not cheap, but in my case it was worth it.
Best monitor I've ever had the pleasure of owning, well worth the price.

Summary: The colors look amazing right out of the box. This is not something I can say about any other monitor I've used before. I did a little tinkering because I am a bit obsessive about it, but it really wasn't necessary. The contrast ratio is also superb for an LCD display, and there is essentially no backlight bleed. Images in general just look far more impressive on this monitor than any other screen I own. Also, the pixel response is very snappy.
Summary: I've been using this monitor for a few months. Bought it for when I got my PC together and used it with my mac. Now that my PC is built, I enjoy using it. Had horrible screen tear and avoided using it, but recently found v-sync solves the problem. FPS games are still playable, but I still play CSGO on my Benq 1080p xl2420z because I enjoy the motion blue reduction on that monitor. Everything else, (BF4, and any other games) I'm playing on this one.
Pros: Great picture IPS 1440p 27 inches Probably the best, but most certainly one of the best IPS (PLS) gaming monitors at 1440p. V-stand is great if you put it in corner of your desk like I do. OSD works great for me. No dead pixels, uniform backlight, no bleed through on my monitor. No flicker, easy on the eyes Pre-calibrated from the factory.
Cons: Makes my 24 inch TN panel next to it look like junk color wise. I use the TN for CSGO and consoles, but the IPS has finally replaced it. Have to use V-sync because screen tear is so bad. Limiting the FPS cap won't do the trick, there will be horrible screen tear across the middle.
Summary: //Update after a few weeks This is a great monitor, I've had a few chances to play games, work a lot in vector based UI design and some minor photo editing (just a small project) as well as a few all night Xcode sessions. I have two of these screens, ergonomically setup using VESA mounts, my workflow is so much nicer.
Summary: Fantastic display. Displayport, 2560x1440 really adds much needed display resolution. Took me a little bit to adjust (now my secondary monitor - a Samsung 22" which was ordinarily very good) to having two screens with the main screen so much nicer and the secondary screen being such a poor monitor by comparison. Can't speak to color representation, etc. and I didn't really care about that.
Excerpt: The factory color calibration was so good that the transition from old to new monitor was utterly transparent. Didn't bother to do a new hardware calibration. USB 3.0 ports are a plus. Was looking at the Asus and Dell but glad I went for the Viewsonic. The monitor is exTREMEly bright, and reducing the brightness to the recommended level of 18 (yes, 18!) worked perfectly. No complaints.
Pros: Calibration, Great picture quality, Large Viewing Area
Summary: Recently purchased two of these beautiful monitors. I read a lot of reviews on Amazon and wanted to get a monitor that would have excellent build quality as well as a great picture. I was impressed by this monitor. Yes, it was more that some comparable brands, but had zero dead pixels and and excellent picture and was already color balanced! Do yourself a favor and reduce the brightness from 100% to 50% when you get it. Other than that, it's awesome.
I am far more pleased with the unit than I expected to be

Summary: In the month that I have had this monitor, I am far more pleased with the unit than I expected to be. The colors are true to life and the text display is sharp and crisp. I really like the width on the unit, it makes working with multiple screen pages very usable for my old eyes. It came with every thing I needed to connect it to my Win7 PC for the best performance. The base attached very easily to the screen portion and is extremely stable.
