  • It has average image quality…
  • Another wired object trailing across the desk? Why not just put the buttons on the monitor & have some short-cut software driven thing that can accomplish the same thing with a single key press from the keyboard? In summary the image quality is poor and washed out, colours are not saturated enough either, in particular red…
  • This monitor is perfect for any type of gamer! Picture quality and performance is 5*, not seen or used anything better then this! Colours are vibrant…
  • The out of box colours are horrible, even when tweaked its still not great…
    Ahmed (Amazon) - January 2014
  • Amazing monitor with great picture quality…
  • Try to aim for the nice refresh rate…
    JMac (Amazon) - November 2015
  • Great design and stylish finish for enthusiast looking for the best 120 refresh rate monitor…
