Customers Report Excellent Design

Two people mentioned that this PC monitor was smooth.

  • Still, if seriously smooth gaming performance is your only concern, take a look… September 2012
  • In games and films you notice patches of squares bunched together of different color tones that really stand out as it can't display the correct variation of colors properly to give a smooth gradient in the image…
