almost amazing 05/08/2014
if the review was for the screen only, i would have given it a 5.
with a little tweaking the colors are really deep and poppy, and you can tell the quality of the pls display over regular tn panels.
the white glossy frame is nice but i think the black version looks a tad better with the blue accent. (at least with my desk setup) also the stand is a little wobbly compared to the black version.
the capacitive buttons give a really elegant feel to the build.
my monitor came with a dead pixel, which lead me to return it and try out the black version which had also just gone on sale.
its also a little silly that these monitors come with a vga out instead a dvi port. i don't know anyone who would buy this monitor and use it through vga. i guess technically the hdmi port is all you need, but i would have made use of the dvi port if it had been there.
also the game mode feature doesn't really do too much other than max the sharpness, brightness and contrast. but for me the sharpness on this mode overdoes it a little bit and ends up distorting the image a little too much. since you aren't able to edit and tweak the game mode preset, i ended up just setting the monitor up the way i like it and will probably never hit the game mode button.
overall this is really a 5 egg quality screen on a 3 or 4 egg quality setup. the glossy frame is attractive and nice to look at but thats about it as far as far as positives for the other features.
for the price that this monitor comes at though, it may be worth it to you since this is about as good as 1080 can look at a really decent price, especially if you catch it on sale like i did. to get anything better looking you would need to start looking at 27' and 1440 resolution and those monitors can easily be double or triple the price of this one.
