This monitor is very good. When I first pulled mine out of the box it actually got a feeling for how much bigger it looks in person. The small bevel on the edge of the screen makes the image stand out in a way I haven't seen in another monitor. The colors, brightness, and contrast are very good as well. It doesn't do that dumb "dynamic contrast" thing either (where, when the image goes dark the screen dims itself). Which is really nice because I feel like every other manufacturer is doing that just because they can even though it doesn't help at all. Over all I love this monitor and I've actually ordered another one.
