Pros: It's IPS, so colors "remain true" ( i.e. they don't shift ),
no matter their screen location .
When you're 12 to 18 inches from the screen,
as I am, the high resolution is much appreciated.
It swivels portrait, so you can view -much- more text
when editing and/or browsing...
and there's more than enough room to watch
a 1080p video at the botton of the screen too.
Cons: When swivelled portrait, as mine is, it's 29 Hz only;
i.e. videos are limited to a jittery 29 fps,
no matter how good your video card may be
( $430, Quadro K2000, or $160 Quadro K600 ).
When a video pans a scene, it looks -bad-, jittery.
To get the portrait mode option, you must
set the monitor to DisplayPort 1 ( not 1.2 ).
Obviously, this is -bleeding- edge tech,
not quite ready for prime time.
Other Thoughts: I can't wait until better/cheaper 4K/UHD,
185 dpi, IPS monitors, with 120 Hz/fps,
portait mode, appear.
Pros: Powerful/Cheap 4K/UHD, only 40 watts.
Cons: More speed at less cost would be nice, obviously.
I had to switch to the "Zoom Player Free"
video player because KMplayer failed
to properly utilize this card.
It took me awhile to figure that out.
Other Thoughts: Moderator, please delete my previous review,
since "user error" the only problem,
not the video card.
Pros: In portrait mode, this monitor is amazing.
There's no better way to surf the web
and/or edit text/code.
Cons: Can't do 60 Hz in portrait mode.
Other Thoughts: Moderator, I want this to replace my previous review.
I was wrong about the video card problems.
Now, I -can- play any-and-all videos.
KMplayer was the problem, not the video card;
"Zoom Player Free" was the solution.
