Rainbow Trail


Very fast monitor, no ghosting in Battlefield 2 which is the only 3D game I play.

Not* for gamers


I usually have pretty good luck when it comes to buying things. I read the reviews, did the research, and found more good than bad said about this monitor. Now, after purchasing it, I regret it sorely. Honestly, I don't see how PC Gamer could have...

Simple packaging. Easy to install. That's it

Poor colors, poor displays. I've spent hours now trying to get the colors right on this monitor with no luck. It's horrible for games. There never seems to be any "true colors" when things like haze/smoke/fog are on the screen. It can only display...

the Savior of our eyes


As a member of an avid online gaming family, this monitor has earned it's modest pricetag tenfold.
