silky nice 05/08/2014
the 5 rating is based mainly on the supreme quality of the screen, which with a little tweaking displays deep, poppy colors. i feel 24' is the sweet spot for 1080p and the pls panel on this display does a superb job.
the glossy frame is also very attractive and slim, putting the emphasis on the screen while still looking good. the capacitive buttons give an elegant feel.
its a little bit silly that they made this with a vga out instead of a dvi. i dont know who would buy this to use with vga. the lone hdmi port i guess is technically all you need but i would have liked the dvi option two (my computer hdmi out was already taken so i had to buy a dvi to hdmi cable to make use of the other port)
the game mode feature doesn't really do too much. i believe it simply changes the presets to max the brightness contrast and sharpness. but ive found that with it enabled the sharpness is a little too much and will distort the image. it would have been nice to be able to edit the game mode settings and save it for future but alas you can only use what is pre programmed so you will probably set the monitor the way you like and end up not using the game mode button all together.
i'm really happy with this purchase overall. i had the white sd360 version just before this, and i think the black one overall looks better and the stand is a little sturdier.
i would recommend this monitor to anyone who is looking to get a really quality 1080 display at a good price. the only better alternative right now would be to go 27' and 1440 and the cost for those can be double or triple this little gem.
