Most Favorable Review

This monitor is an excellent monitor, the speakers will make you scratch your head though.

Pros: 0 dead pixels excellent color replication great refreshrate great resolution sleek desk stand and screen frame design - I am even able to move and relocate this thing without touching the screen due to the nifty handle at the top of the back stand.

Cons: Kind of a pain to plug cables in where they are located in the back of the monitor (display port location etc.. a bit too flush/tight with the back of the monitor) Kind of pricey - it looks like non g-sync variants are about 500 bucks cheaper Why did they even bother with the speakers? ( they handle low-mid range ok surprisingly but struggle mightily with highs - would not recommend their use unless you have nothing else)

Overall Review: OSD menu navigation takes getting used to.. Newegg and Fedex teamed up to get my monitor delivered 1-2 days before i expected it to show up - kudos! This is my first foray into the g-sync/free-sync 60+ hz scene and wasn't sure if i would see the benefits, but a friend convinced me to try and recommended I get this monitor; ensuring me its worth it. If it lasts for as long as my old one(s) i wont be sorry, because so far he's been absolutely correct. Speakers aside, this is a 5 star product!

Pretty good

Pros: Pretty Cheap, great intro to water cooling kit. Farily quiet even with radiator fan on full speed. Easy install instructions (at least for socket 775)

Cons: Didn't do as well as I thought it would for overclocking a q6600 Temperature seems to slowly climb uncontrollably if I go higher than 3.3 GHZ (So I really am not doing any better than with my old zalman9500 air cooler that only cost ~50.00)

Overall Review: This is great for water cooling-beginners and if you want to get rid of noisy fans. Going on 2nd month and its still full of distilled water/coolant, and haven't had refill it since the first boot-run.
