5 out of 5 eggsJust Do It

Pros: Stop thinking. Just do it. I bought this monitor with 0 regrets whatsoever. On sale, full price.... just buy it.

- 144Hz refresh rate is unreal. Whoever says 60Hz to 144Hz makes little to no difference must think no different of a Fiat to a Ferrari. It's ABSOLUTELY noticeable. And amazing.

-Colours. I'm sure there's better - but that's the case for almost anything. At 300 bucks, these colours kick some serious rear. Just adjust them properly in the monitor settings (to whatever you like!). You can also try your hand at ICC profiles (very easy to use) if you think other peoples opinions will line up exactly with yours.

- Cable management in the back is a plus. Nothing fancy, but just what you need.

- Stand spins on the base. When you normally rotate a monitor, you have to hold the base and rotate the screen. Not with this monitor! The base has a "base" underneath it, so the whole monitor rotates with minimal force (and one hand).

- Solid tilt/height lock

-One more for the 144Hz... like SERIOUSLY. Just buy the monitor already. Why are you still reading this? Go click "Add to Cart".

Cons: -To me, this monitor blissfully perfect. I noticed with crumby pictures you will notice the "sharpness" setting as you change it in the monitors settings. This is particularly noticeable with Windows 8.1 default background (the orange-yellow boxes). Don't worry - Put in an actual HD picture and adjust the monitor.

-Nothing else here (have you clicked Add to Cart yet?)

Other Thoughts: So you can go ahead and add this to your cart now... The refresh rate is noticeable everywhere. Windows animations, fast typing feels like butter (especially in Office 2013 with those improved animations), Gaming is a whole new world.

I see people saying get a DisplayPort cable... I just used the DVI it came with and it seems to be working, but I may give that a go someday.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Monitor for the Price!

Pros: Has great brightness and Contrast second only to Samsung which you will pay more for.

The varied different modes help with finding the best fit for your set up, or use.

The Gaming Reticle function is great for shooter's or anything First Person.

Colors are over-Saturated in various viewing modes, but once you calibrate to specified specs of your liking as everyone's eye's are different. The quality is astonishing.

Refresh rate is for Gamer's, worth it if your about frames.

Great price for the features given, anything with these on a Samsung, Dell Ultra will be almost $100-200 more.

Cons: As a color snob, I will admit Samsung and Higher end Dell monitor's produce better, more truer colors.

Brightness is too much sometimes even at lower settings.

Still a little edge bleed, which may be case by case basis. Not noticeable while gaming, but when watching something in widescreen you do see it.

Other Thoughts: For the Money, I was going for 27" but after putting this in and raising the height, It's more than enough for viewing,designing and mainly Playing games at high refresh rate.

1 out of 5 eggsCoil Whine After 1 Month

Pros: The monitor will definitely run at 144 Hz, making use of your GPUs full ability.

Cons: After about 3 weeks, I noticed a strange noise that would happen as soon as I started up Diablo 3. I tested with BF4, starcraft 2, Crysis, and the Batman Arkham series and found the same result. Any time the monitor is in gaming use, loud coil whine occurs. I tested at different refresh rates and found that if I lower the refresh rate all the way to 60 Hz, the whine is bearable, still present, but not loud enough to hear through my headset.
Summary, save your money and buy either another 144 Hz monitor or get a cheaper 60 Hz monitor with better picture quality. The coil whine issue makes you feel embarrassed to show your friends your rig and will make you regret your decision.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Monitor

Pros: This monitor WILL look smoother than a 60 Hz LCD ESPECIALLY w/ STROBING (basically a CRT simulator).
Tons of swivel-ability. Sturdy base.
Can use 3D (not at same time as strobing)

Cons: People have ridiculed me for dropping money on these because "the eye can't see more than 20 or something fps DUH."

Other Thoughts: Check for strobing programs online if you're interested in what is essentially zero motion blur. Every other frame will be a black screen which will make the screen a bit darker and cut your frames in half. However, motion blur will be non-existent.
If you don't understand what motion blur is, play an rts, scroll past some stuff with the keyboard. Notice how impossible it is to make out fine details when screen is moving.
I find the improvement from 144 to STROBED 120 is far more noticeable than the improvement from 60 to 144.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor, glaring oversights

Pros: The response time and refresh rate is AWESOME. I don't think I can go back from 144hz gaming. When a game will hit 100+ frames, it looks amazing and feels great, especially in shooters and the like.
Image quality is decent, contrast is pretty good, and the colors are vibrant.

Cons: Adjustment settings are a bit lacking and it's pretty hard to calibrate to accurate colors. Image quality isn't amazing, although it does the trick for the most part.
The biggest issue I have with the monitor is how the input selection works. It's atrocious. It automatically detects if there is an input but it gives almost no time for the device to hit that window. With something like an Xbox 360, which has admittedly an unusual boot process, it makes things very difficult when trying to switch from another input such as DisplayPort. It's infuriating having to start the system 10 times tryingt o start it up and then switch the inputs just right, not too fast and not too slow, to catch the 360 as it boots up. This would have been a moot point if the detection on the input switching was more lenient, giving more time for devices to catch the monitor before switching away. Granted, most of the things that would cause issues here would be home theatre devices, but at the same time, what the hell else am I going to have in alternate inputs on a monitor?
An option for manual, forced input selection or an extended time to before automatically switching would be far better.

Other Thoughts: Awesome monitor, but not very good at much of anything else.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: High refresh
Low Response
Very Bright
Adjustable height, tilt, etc..
Good contrast

Cons: TN screen, so if you need perfect colors, this is not the monitor for you.
The delay on other monitors is painfully obvious now.

Other Thoughts: I think it was a mistake to buy this because now it hurts my eyes to look at other monitors.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Value

Pros: Price
Stand is awesome

This monitor is the best for enthusiast gamers that want 144hz without spending too much. There are other options that have better looking colors, but you have to pay $100+ more. This price can't be beat.

I also want to point out again, that the stand is awesome. Very high quality, plus VESA mounted so can be reused if you decide to mount this screen another way.

Gaming experience is substantially improved. Heck, even the desktop experience is improved - the mouse cursor is so smooth.

Cons: Ruined my opinion of 60hz monitors. Once you go 144hz, you never go back.

Other Thoughts: Colors aren't the best out there, but this monitor was not designed to look the best. It was designed for performance, and it accomplished that goal. Note that the out of box colors will need to be adjusted if you want them to be more accurate. This is not a con in my eyes, because you should calibrate any monitor you get, even if the out of box settings look "good".

4 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: * Stand is vesa-mounted, so when you remove the stand to mount to a monitor mounting mechanism, you have a universally compatible stand good for most monitors
* Stand is *very* nice, includes cable management and has a built-in swivel mechanism, as well as a height adjustment. Also allows for rotating the monitor.
* Inputs galore - connect via HDMI (no 3D with this option, though), DVI, or display port. I use both the DVI and Display Port with the two I bought.

Cons: * Monitor rotation doesn't appear to be lockable. Not very noticeable if this is your only monitor, but putting two of them next to each other is nearly impossible to align perfectly.
* Includes speakers. I'd rather not pay for them, and I certainly won't be using them. I don't know of anybody who would and would be willing to pay this much for a monitor.
* Includes HDMI, but has no 3D support for it. From researching, it appears that even though 3D should be possible over HDMI at 720p resolutions, the firmware of this screen does not support it. So... if you use HDMI, expect to be locked in at a 60 Hz refresh rate. Alternatively, get yourself an adapter and use either display port or DVI-DL (assuming your source doesn't have similar firmware limitations).

5 out of 5 eggsSmooth image quality

Pros: Right off the bat 144hz is awesome. Metro Last Light and Tomb Raider look photo realistic on this monitor vs a certain 700$ 27 inch samsung. I had to pick this up after breaking the samsung, and downgraded in size. Took me a bit to get used to 24 inches vs 27 but the response rate is so worth it. I don't see how anyone can game today with a 60hz monitor, truly missing out.

The color quality is good, but I suspect a IPS would yeild better results. Can not find a IPS 3d monitor for 3D Vision 2 and that is mainly why I bought this monitor (though I can't afford the glasses kit yet). Most off theres no glare like my samsung, and I really appreciate that.

I'd recommend this to anyone on a budget. I specifically got this over the 27 inch VE/H due to this being cheaper and 1ms. I plan on getting a 780GTX in the near future to use the 144hz maximum capability.

Cons: Older cards such as the HD 5770 and around that generation can not use the 144hz. At least my HD 5770 can not, causing screen tearing. I tested a r9 270x 4gb and that had no problem. I think they should write a warning about that, so people with older parts are aware they need to upgrade for 144hz. 120hz runs fine though.

Also the only thing that really upset me off was the power cable. This is the 21st century why am I getting such a short power cable?! I'm wondering if a gold plated dual link DVI would be better than the default I received for this monitor.

Other Thoughts: I like this monitor a lot but when I have the in come and a new 3D vision monitor comes out that has a IPS, I'm going that way. I love lucid colors but the samsung wasn't even an IPS...

4 out of 5 eggsI just bought 2 more for 3 way surround

Pros: Refresh rate
Color quality is good, there are better monitors out there if you want good color reproduction. This was made for speed!

I originally owned 1 of them for about a year, and just recently purchased 2 more so that I can run surround

Cons: TN panels are a bit outdated nowadays, but the price can't be beat.

Turning the monitor to portrait makes the color change a bit. Can't put my finger on it, but I don't like using them in portrait.

Other Thoughts: I still love this monitor, even with its shortcomings.

I've started turning down some settings in games so that I'm able to push 144fps. I only play FPS though, so the increased fps really helps.
