Pros: I spent a great deal of time researching before picking this monitor as it was the best thing that could be gotten for ~500 dollars, the next step up at the time was easily 1200 bucks.
This monitor has both fast response time and little input lag for a IPS monitor.
The colors are fantastic once you learn how to use color correction as this is a wide gamut monitor. Easily beats every screen I have seen in person to date other than some nifty 1200-2000 dollar screens and even then it is so close that the added cost doesn't make them worth it for my purposes.
The stand is FANTASTIC, and totally worth an extra 100 bucks IMO. The input options are fantastic as well, I have several pieces of equipment hooked up to my primary LP2475W (bought two).
I primarily use it for gaming and my father has used them extensively for photo editing. We are both quite positive these are some of the best monitors money can buy.
Cons: I know I said it is fast for an IPS, but coming from a high end CRT there is a noticeable lag at first. But I noticed that with any TFT panel, now over a year later I would be hard pressed to notice the lag between this and a fast 2ms TN type panel. Granted my CRT arguably still feels a tiny bit quicker.
The only other thing I could complain about is the IPS white glow effect. Which is when viewing from wide angles the screen gets a "white glow" to it which appears like back light bleeding. This is normal for IPS monitors and only the super high end IPS displays have polarizing filters that eliminate it (they look amazing) but you also pay a huge premium to get that filter.
TLDR; this monitor doesn't have any issues worth complaining about. Hands down the best monitor I have seen to date for the money.
Other Thoughts: The only thing that would make this better is a polarizing filter and RGB LED backlighting (aka the HP dreamcolor series 2k+ price tag).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The modular cables are nice for keeping your case nice and clean but I will never buy another again.The power supply worked fine for alittle over a year then the mobosupply line began to fail.I blame it on the modular design.
Cons: The totalwatts viewer is totaly useless... imho a ammeter would be alot nicer and more usefull.The modular design caused the failure since the 24pin connector on the supply would come lose and didnt make a good connection.Fan was very loud when anywhere over 40% imo. also the control doesnt fit a tsunami case properly.
Other Thoughts: it powered a a8n-sli deluxe, amd 3700+, 7800gt, 2ATA hard disks,2dvd burners,and 4 120mm fans rated at .45 amps. It failed shortly after i installed a waterpump rated at .4 amps andon full load i could sometimes hear the fans slow down for a moment leading me to beleave there wasnt enough power.
when i checked the 24pin connector was lose again and i reconnected it and the system bleeped on for a second and shut down.
