Pros: Beautiful Display. The colors and clarity are amazing
The stand does everything. Twist,turn,tilt,swivel,height adjust
No Dead Pixels/Everything was sealed
Cons: Some backlight bleed, but I guess its to be expected.
Response time/ input lag is noticeable compared to my previous monitor-After a week of everyday use it is not noticeable at all. The only game I noticed this was on was BF4
Buttons other than the power feel cheap.
Other Thoughts: Coming from a Gateway FHD2400 1920x1200 3ms TN I will never go back. It took me about a week to get used to the response/input but now I don't notice it at all. (That was my biggest worry) Coming from a glossy screen it took a while to get used to semi matte finish but I still prefer glossy. The speakers are not that good but are better than what most will lead you to believe. They don't deserve to be a con or to knock off an egg.
If you're debating whether or not to step up from 1080 or 1200 to 1440 you absolutely should. The real estate and detail is amazing. The immersion puts you right in the game.
I mostly play BF4 and Arma 3 and they look absolutely stunning at 1440. Arma should be bundled it looks so good.

EVGA 750 Bronze

Pros: Runs Cool- at 72C avg temp
Quiet -My Hyper 212 is louder than this card
Got lucky with the Hynix memory but I haven't overclocked it yet as I wanted to test it out for at least a month before reviewing it.
With beta driver 14.6 I haven't seen any throttling while playing any game using Afterburner/RT to monitor this.
Can max out every game I own at 1200p My next purchase will be a 27" 1440p monitor because of how good this card is.
Stock clocks are 1000/1300
Cons: Takes up just over 2 slots. If I wanted to Xfire another I would have to move my PSU to the top of my case and I have double spacing on my pcie slots.
Long- I had already removed the gpu fan shroud from my case for my previous card a gigabyte 7870, but this card has about an inch of space before its touches the HDD bays. However I knew this when purchasing.
Power-You need a beefy psu I'd say at least 600w
Heavy-It may sag but as long as you use a screw or two on the input slot you'll be fine.
I knew all of these thing when purchasing and don't believe they equal knocking off an egg. Especially when your buying a high end $400+ component
