Great vibrant picture when I used the Displayport, HDMI was ok when I used the built in graphics (i3 4360 with Z97 based board) but this is limited to 30hz frame rate and for some reason the colours were pretty bland. I had to buy a graphics card in...

Great quality, and colour too with ips display, didn't need to calibrate externally as it was great out the box

No adjustment for height which is a big thing as it sits quiet low on a desk, I have had to use books to make the screen higher

Although advertised as 4K, it's more like HD quality. Tested against another 4K monitor and it just didn't match up. Tested both HDMI and Display Port.
