Reviewed 23 July 2015 by Matthew B.

Nearly everyone who sees this monitor on my desk does a double take and comments on how impressive it looks, and wants to look at the screen! I am very glad I purchased this...

Gorgeous screen, higher resolution, decent sounding speakers, slick stand
Speakers placed on each side make the monitor appear wider, but also takes up much more room. As surprising as it may seem, even with this monitor, I need other monitors, so it puts a lot of distance
