Pros: Very good monitor for gaming, possibly the best 1080p monitor I have ever seen for under $250. The speakers are meh, but they work, and most people who will use this monitor will use it for gaming or videos, where you will generally use a headset. The average contrast ratio is great, if you want it to be, the blacks look like the monitor is off, where as the whites are blinding. Both the monitor and HDMI cable's build quality is superb. a few weeks ago, a 10 pound subwoofer fell from about 2 feet directly onto the hdmi cable. Though the connector got pulled partially out of it's housing, upon bending it back, it works like nothing happened. This monitor is also very power efficient, it uses a little more than half the wattage of my previous monitor.
Cons: The monitor overdrive can't be adjusted, and this monitor does not like overclocked video cards. Every time I boot my PC once I started overclocking (even after replacing the card, and even when not overclocking), I have to turn on AMD overdrive in catalyst control center to avoid tearing. After starting Overdrive in CCC, there are never any further issues. As stated above, the speakers are not the best, but, what can you expect out of onboard monitor speakers
Other Thoughts: This monitor is BIG, make sure you know what a 24" monitor looks like. Also, this monitor goes on sale frequently (about once a month). Either when it's on sale or not, its a really good value, but, if you can, wait a little to see if you can get a better priceREAD FULL REVIEW
