Pros: Very good quality IPS panel for the money. Image quality surpasses much more expensive similar monitors I have tested recently from Samsung, for instance. Very good image color reproduction (after adjustments), matte screen finish, good brightness and contrast. No dead pixels.
Cons: Not as well finished as other current monitors, but still nice enough. Controls are BEHIND panel on the lower right hand side. Awkward placement choice, but easy to get used to after navigating the controls a few times, so not such a big deal.
Other Thoughts: I am very pleased with the image quality of this panel. IPS panel does not disappoint in the least. No ghosting with games or text, such as I experienced with Samsung LED LCD panel (color shifting, ghosting - just horrible)
Had to make minor adjustments to the phase and clock settings out of the box, and also to the color temp, brightness and contrast, but it is giving me a stunning looking output right now.
Pros: Good price point. Nice construction and finish.
Cons: Not very good color reproduction. Very poor response time running at 59Hz in 1920x1080. It's an eye killer. Has typical color reproduction issues found on many Samsung TN panels. Needed thorough calibration and a lot of tweaking to get a decent image. My expectations were probably too high, but I have bought Acers that looked better, right out of the box.
Other Thoughts: Samsung Magic Tune calibration/control software did not work on Win7 x64 (basically garbage anyway) Very minimal control options in manual settings.
I thought i would give it a shot because of the sale price, but I'm wrapping it up and re-selling it.
Pros: Excellent layout, great feature set for price point. Easy to install and to tweak. Supports 1600 speed memory flawlessly (and above) Core unlock works very well, and supremely easy to do.
Now running an AM3 AthlonII X3 450 like a 3.5GHz Phenom Black Quad Core. Super smooth!
Other Thoughts: Great quality as usual by Gigabyte. Their products are always solid and most times even better than the perceived industry leader (Asus)READ FULL REVIEW
