Pros: This is the best gaming monitor I've used so far. Worked great from day one.
Cons: Pretty expensive..
Doesn't calibrate itself :-)
Other Thoughts: Make sure to get Catalyst 15.3 beta or newer to get Freesync support, and get rid of flickering at full res. 144Hz.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Smooth gaming at 144 Hz. Nice physical adjustment features. 3D. I believe it's also upgradable with nVidia G-SYNC module, for tearing-free gaming. Hopefully AMD will also support the tech.
Cons: It took some time to find information on how to get the color calibration right.
Other Thoughts: Calibration procedure I used:
Color temp: user mode: R96 G94 B88
Trace Free: 60
And then I ran Spyder4 Pro calibration to create an ICC profile. Then I used PowerStrip (AMD/ATI only) to load the new ICC profile. Remove Spyder software from start-up. Modify C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\PStrip.ini
This locks the new colors in Windows and games.
Everything improved million times better. I notice some color banding sometimes during dark moments in some videos, but I think it's the result of compression. If anybody has a better/improved way, please post.
Cons: Avoid Gigabyte if you're in Canada. Their RMA service makes you pay UPS brokerage fees. Gigabyte customer service agent says that they don't support brokerage fees.READ FULL REVIEW
