Pros: This screen is quite large, larger than I anticipated. The visuals are very smooth and crisp. The settings are also very customizable especially with the Nvidia control panel. Backlighting stops all issues I had with sun glare; perfect for gaming. The screen tilts vertically with a small bit of strength and I did not worry about breaking the screen while doing it.
Cons: Does not come with an HDMI cable so add the price of an HDMI to the cost for this screen. Also my videocard only has 1 HDMI port so I won't be adding a dual screen to this setup any time soon.
The screen itself is embedded about .7 centimeters into the sleek glossy frame thus the frame itself reflects what is on the edge of the screen. The reflection is not always noticed or distracting but I've noticed it a few times during gaming.
The stand does not add much height so I'll be investing in a box to elevate the screen.
Vertical viewing angle is not very large thus standing up while watching something will apply a faded grey to the top half of the screen though the change isn't huge.
Other Thoughts: Factory settings are really bright. Adjusting the settings easily fixes any brightness issues. No headaches.
Tbh I'd rather have a 19" square screen for gaming but my screen died and good 19's seem to be on their way out of the market or something... This widescreen has not hampered my hobby that I know of yet. The only issue about this large widescreen is any quickslot hotkeys located on the boarder of the screen could be just out of sight for quick cooldown checks.
This screen does not appear to travel well. I'm currently in a college environment so I find myself bringing my computer home and back for vacations to avoid theft. The screen does not have any place to firmly grasp it except for the stem which is permanently attached to the screen after snapping it on. Since the stem does not come off the screen does not fit snugly in the box anymore. The circular base does screw off...and is a pain because there is no tab on the screw the help with finger only twisting.
