Super crisp, High quality
Cons: Weird distortion effect when logging on or off
super faint, hardly noticible lines on the left 1/4 of the screen
Other Thoughts: I'm gonna start with the cons because they're hard to explain. When logging on or off the screen picture distorts and does not fill the entire screen top and bottom. Which is a hassle because the only way to fix it is turning it off and back on, which takes about 15 seconds and I feel bad doing it to the monitor. That's why I knocked off an egg.
I was reading reviews for this and a user pointed out the vertical lines on the left quarter of the screen, I looked close, squinted a little, and it was true. They were right there in front of me the whole time and I barely ever noticed.
I transitioned from an AOC 1920x1080 monitor that was a beast. It died in the worst way possible, flickering and flashing in weird ways and had to go to another store to get this monitor.
We got it because it was the highest resolution for a low price, and I felt terrible not getting another 1920x1080 resolution, but the price was fantastic so we got it.
When I hooked everything up I immediately ran Modern Warfare 3 and was BLOWN AWAY by it. It was so bright compared to my old flickerer and I just could not believe the sharpness of the display, even running on low settings in the game (I believe I went 23 and 6 that first game). I can't even describe how drastic the transition was. I've had the monitor for about 4 months now and not a single problem. I'm debating on getting two more for my new PC build, or upgrading to a 1920x1080 screen for almost $150 more, and I think I just may stick to this bad boy. The low resolution makes the picture much better, and the monitor is just overall the best out there for me.
