After a Month of Research

 

After shopping for approximately a month for a device that would double as a work monitor for independent movie post-production from a MacBook Pro via DigitalPort, as well as an HDTV for a PS4, this is what I chose. Over the course of that month, I...

One Bad Pixel, 5ms Seems Like It Could Be A Slight Bit Less Blurry

DisplayPort input. 27". Game mode crosshair or timer

When using displayport, you must use the displayport audio out of the computer if you want to use the speakers or headphones jack on the monitor. The monitor will not use the audio in jack, Picture quality is rather poor compared to other less...

Decent Monitor - Build Quality Questionable

 

Decent display. Beautiful design

I've owned this monitor for about a year and a half. The bottom bezel started separating from the screen a couple of months ago. At this point there's about a 2mm gap between the screen and the bottom bezel. Disappointing

A very nice overall monitor

 

Some of the people here complaining have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. If you know you're buying a 1080p monitor at 27", obviously it can't be compared to a 27" 1440p or 4K. You can't just stretch pixels out and expect the same...

Huge display with thin bezels. Bezel is around half an inch it seems. IPS display with nice angles. Little to none back light bleeding thank goodness. No noticeable lag in gaming thus far. Paired with a GTX 970 and has performed admirably. Paid under...

Buttons are insane. Who came up with super sensitive touch buttons with no feedback. Takes forever to do something simple because you are always accidentally pressing the wrong thing
