Pros: I have had this monitor for two years now, the colors are vibrant, there is no washout at the edges. The contrast is amazing and I have never had any issues running even the most recent games at the highest settings, it takes anything my video card throws at it and displays it beautifully.
I first used this as a monitor for my laptop and have since bought a desktop. I use a I5 2500k over clocked to 4.4ghz, a Nvidia 560ti overclocked with MSI afterburner and 16Gb of Corsair Vengence Ram running at 1600 Mhz. I have played just about any graphics intensive game at the highest settings and this monitor makes them all look amazing. HD movies and TV shows look as good as the Samsung 46" 240mhz LED backlit 3D Smart TV displays them. You will not be disappointed by this monitor in anyway.
As with anything, getting it to the settings you want for your own tastes requires you to set it. That's life, technology does not read your mind yet. So for people complaining about having to set the settings.... stop complaining. That's why you are able to set it to whatever you like. Being able to set it to anything you desire is in my opinion another plus.
Two years later I have no dead pixels, no color bleeding, no complaints at all.
Cons: The tiniest annoyance is on PC start up it cycles through the different possible display inputs until the one you have plugged in begins sending data to the monitor. I would only suggest being able to tell the monitor which input to wait for and not cycle on it's own everytime.
Other Thoughts: The con listed is a tiny annoyance that is probably meant to keep less tech savvy people from inadvertently picking the wrong input port and being frustrated. It is only a minor annoyance and I can understand why it is that way.READ FULL REVIEW
