Awesome monitor 08/24/2013
This is a great monitor. The upgrade from 60hz to 144hz gaming has changed everything. This panel has fantastic clarity and picture quality. The ability to enable Lightboost for 2d gaming (via 3rd party software) gives it without a doubt the smoothest motion available in a monitor.
If your PC is capable of pushing 120/144 fps, you are doing yourself a disservice if you're still using a 60hz monitor.
The built-in speakers are also very convenient. For intense gaming sound I use a headset, but for casual computing the speakers work just fine and have freed up a significant portion of my deskspace.
The color is a little whack out of the box, but as linked above the ICC profile mostly corrects it. I still can't get the color matched exactly with my old monitor, but it is close enough.
Also, after several hours my eyes really start to hurt - I know, what do you expect - but I notice it more using this monitor than the Samsung I was using before. Lightboost accelerates the onset of this eventual headache.
When Lightboost is enabled the whole panel is a little dimmer and the colors become slightly duller. This is an acceptable tradeoff for literally ZERO MOTION BLUR.
Nvidia and/or ASUS really need enable this feature without having to use 3rd party software.
