Pros: This monitor blew me away from the moment I opened the box. My old panel was an Acer 24" TN panel thats about 3 years old, which was fine but I wanted to be able to do slightly more accurate color work so I went shopping for an IPS panel. This monitor is sturdily built, with a killer stand that INCLUDES VESA MOUNTING HOLES which makes is much better than other value IPS panels, along with having full support for Displayport, which was the only port available on my Radeon 290. The color is fantastic and within a few days I really noticed how much sharper the blacks were than on my old monitor, even though my office positions my desk with a window behind me pouring light on the panel. Impressive, to say the least. Also, the built in USB hub helped me out as I ran out of ports on my ASUS m5a97.
Cons: There are only a few cons I can find on this monitor. The first one is that its quite heavy for a screen. If you are someone who likes to go to LANs or is just moving around their setup a lot like I am, you're probably better off finding another monitor for that. I'm lucky with my second monitor being the 24" Acer thats as light as a feather. The other thing, to be expected, is the poor quality of the built in speakers.Though I usually have my headphones on anyways, sometimes I want to show a colleague a funny video or what have you, and the speakers just aren't up to par.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I am quite happy with this monitor and will give it the full score of 5 eggs. I would gladly recommend this to a friend and already have. It helps a ton with editing pictures and screenshots for color more so than any TN panel on the market can boast and I will look forward to any future "high resolution" versions of the IPS panel from LG and Asus's rebrand of their panel. Fantastic product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: We bought this for our Graphics producer to improve the smoothness of cutscenes and our whole team is happy we did. The GK110 is now the standard according to me in video rendering. Just unbelievable, even the cooler looks top-notch and high class.
Cons: GPU Boost 2.0 was a bit buggy at first, and we set the target temperature at 100c, because we had an EK water block for cooling on the card. The card decided to run at 50c instead of 100c, even though we checked time and time again restricting performance. Eventually we realized it was a driver problem and nVidia helped us out with that.
Other Thoughts: Overall, it helped make our production run smoother. The 780 proves to be one of the best out there and we now run two of these bad boys in our rendering test bench at ZeroLabs.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Alone, this monitor is a very good display. It has a good viewing angle and all my colleagues can see what I'm doing sitting in my office. Its very large and has a good resolution. I have two of these hooked up to dual 6970s and a third HDMI asus monitor for eyefinity to test our 3D designs.
Cons: If they had displayport 2.0 or mini display or even HDMI i would have bought three. But they did not so I did have to recycle my four year old Asus display to work with these.
Other Thoughts: Overall, these displays have made my productivity go up at work and I'm very happy to have invested in them. If Acer ever decides to lower the price on their Displayport displays, I will jump on that.READ FULL REVIEW
