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

Stand Is Very Restrictive
