Pros: Cheap, 8 bit panel, low/no FRC or other dithering, low input lag, okish response time, ~20ms lag.
Cons: Good bit of overshoot/overagressiveness on the response (darkish halo left behind) no DVI-D or even DVI-A input, touch sensitive controls annoying
Other Thoughts: Really a surprising little monitor. Decent for gaming at ~20ms input lag. Short of an expensive upgrade to the absolutely incredible Eizo Forris 2333 you aren't going to find a IPS or a native 8 bit panel that performs as well, and especially not at this price.
The overshoot in ghosting response is a bit of a disappointment, and the lack of any inputs other than HDMI was almost a deal-breaker for me, but it's a solid little unit. I bought it with the intention of upgrading, and it's a good little monitor for the price.
If you want an 8 bit (might be 8 bit native) panel without the godawful dithering TN panels exhibit with reasonable gaming performance for a cheap price, this is an excellent choice.
Pros: Good price, very low trailing and motion blur when "trace free" is set to 60-80, 100 overcompensates for the motion a bit too much, resulting in a dark afterimage. Good input selection.
Cons: Very very poor dithering, which is to be expected from such an inexpensive 6-bit TN panel. FRC/Temporal Dithering is noticeable on the majority of test colors, for which dithering is required. Presents itself as an animated pattern across the affected area. Google "dithering pattern" for a more detailed description / explanation. Results in low color fidelity, and a distracting pattern in dithered areas when too close, or moving. Narrow viewing angles compared to any IPS panel.
Other Thoughts: If the fidelity of the image is not important, this is an excellent monitor for gaming, providing good motion blur reduction in addition to a 120hz+ refresh rate at a very affordable price. However, care should be taken for those who require color accuracy. TN panels provide poor color, narrow viewing angles, and bad dithering compared to any IPS panel.READ FULL REVIEW
