Excerpt: I'm a nature/landscape photographer and this replaces my HP-LP2480zx which was also a very good monitor. My ViewSonic has no light bleeding around the edges and no dead pixels I've been able to find. The Adobe RGB color space seems very accurate. The increased resolution of this monitor is very appreciated, particularly for photo editing. My only problem was when connected to the graphics card via DP, upon wake up from monitor sleep, the computer would BSOD and restart.
Excerpt: I purchased this as a second monitor to use with Lightroom & Photoshop. It has a nice wide color gamut (I generally work in Adobe RGB), calibrated easily, and is reasonably priced for the quality. About the only negative thing I can say, and it is very minor, is the port labels on the back are hard to read.
Excerpt: Use as my photo editing monitor along side my Dell 20" monitior. Although factory calibrated, I used my Spyder4 Elite to studio match the pair. I have since recalibrated the monitors to work at their peak settings individually.
Summary: Loving this monitor is has great colors and lots display area to work my magic. Being a photographer I can say it was worth the purchase. I see some people have complained about support for Macs. Fortunately for me I run Windows 8.1 Pro and have had no issues with it. Lightroom and Photoshop look great on it. I can say I'm very pleased with this purchase. It was a good happy medium going over getting one of the much higher priced professional photography monitors.
Summary: simply not for mac users. after reading so many bad reviews for the apple thunderbolt display i decided to get this. but i should have went with the apple display. just could not get it to work with my new 2014 mac pro. it only worked via hdmi. text looks horrible using hdmi. horrible. hurts my eyes. how disappointing. I'm sending it back now. I'm sure its better for windows users. but not for mac users.
Excerpt: I am a web designer and I was considering another monitor for my mac laptop. I'm so glad I bought this one instead! I got a lot more features for around the same price as the other monitor I was considering, and it is easily compatible with my mac. It has every type of conection you will ever need, and all the cables are included. The colors, picture, design of the montitor, everything about it is great!
