I bought this monitor strctly for my gaming computer. Im an oldschool pc gamer, and I couldnt get past the blur and input lag of higher response time lcds. I used a 20 " crt for 10 years and loved it. However, I wanted a monitor that was widescreen. I tried several lcds that I quickly returned because of the ghosting blur in th fps games I play.
After a freind told me to try this monitor and after several days of research, I decided to give lcds one more try. While the response time is still not as good as a crt's, this is the closest I've come across.
And after playing for several hours, I've adjusted to it.
I gotta say this monitor has a very nice picure, though not the best Ive seen, but very good none the less.
Because of its size, you should set this monitor about 24" back from you. This is because when you are closer, the sides of the screen are at an angle and become darker and discolered, noticible especially on white screens such as this page.
This monitor has 3 input selections, dvi, hdmi, and vga. Im not sure why anyone would pay this much for a monitor just to hook up vga, but its nice to know that If I needed it sumday, its there. Pros:
Very fast response time, better than other suposed 2ms monitors Ive seen
Good input selections
fairly uniform color/brightness when looking straight on. Cons:
color/brightness distorts at angles(typical of lcds)
monitor' menu buttons are awkward to use
No height adjustment(typical at this price range) Other notes:
Ordered on sunday night received wednsay morning for 0.97 cents shpping, not bad
NO DEAD PIXELS! whew- read a lot of review that this monitor has a high rate of dead pixels.
not the most attractive bezel, but thats not why I bought it.
Have not tried internal speakers, as I have my own setup. Do a lot of research before you buy a monitor. Different type monitors do different things well.
This is a TN display. They are inexpensive, have fast response times, but the picture quality is slightly inferior.
Ips monitors are better for photo editting because of more acurate colors, but have slower response times, and typically cost alot more. Hope this helps some1,
