Pros: Very wide display, nice picture, sleek design, vesa mount
Cons: low brightness-couldn't get it as bright as my Acer LED, game compatibility issues
Other Thoughts: No I am not a verified owner because I bought this at a local store. Plugged it in and fell in love with it instantly. But.... as I started to play different games to see how everything looked I ran into problems. Kerbal Space looked great and has a setting for this resolution. With DayZ and Skyrim I had to go into the config files and change some things to get it to work. Assassin's Creed Black Flag had a horrible letterbox effect and was unplayable. After trying many other games and spending a lot of time trying to get resolutions to work I decided this was not the monitor for me.
I will say that if you are going to use this in an office environment that it would be an excellent choice. Anything but gaming and this monitor is much better than your 16:9 ratio.
Also be aware that even though it is a 25", when placed next to a 16:9 1080p 23", the height of the 25" is less than the 23". I would recommend going to the larger 29" or 34".
Pros: Cost, free games, cooling
Cons: none so far
Other Thoughts: Switched from hd7770 in crossfire and I'm very glad I made the switch from AMD in general. Games like Skyrim, Hitman: Absolution, War Thunder, Bioshock 2, Call of Duty (any) all look much better running on this card. Everything is much more fluid like, card is quiet, the price is right, EVGA and nVidia software is great to use and easy too! Compared to the (now more expensive) R9 280x, visually this card looks better even if it is pulling a lower FPS.
Have this paired with a 960T and have experienced 0 bottlenecking. Runs very cool even under full load for hours.
In summary, do not buy an AMD card....ever. Unless you are playing DayZ then you'll get poor FPS either way ;)
Pros: Got this when it was about half the current price, I have windows on along with a few other programs (no games) Works great for me
Cons: not freeREAD FULL REVIEW
