I'm in love...

The picture is beyond amazing. Colors pop like no monitor I've ever used, but with excellent contrast and clarity
It's absurdly wide. I primarily use this monitor for work, and it is effectively the same as having dual monitors with no bezel in between, which helps with flexibility for things like spreadsheets
Great build quality. Everything just feels sturdy and well made
18 Tabs Open At Once
Amazing For Mmo's
Not great for FPS gaming. Noticeable screen tearing (rapid movements can cause portions of your view to momentarily "fracture" as you pan). It's not unusable, but I play Counter Strike at a solid leve
Backlight Bleed Is Bad
Gets Pretty Warm
Price
Stand Is Very Restrictive

It's a really nice monitor, but it does have a big price tag. At regular price I would probably skip this and get a pair of 2560x1440 or 1600 instead, but on sale for 750 was good enough to change... Read more…
