"Grate picture and a good price"4.5 starson by Rainfrog
Pros: 1. Full 1080p HD resolution for movies and games (can you say Blu-Ray?)
2. Attractive stylish design. People see it and ask "Where can I get one?"
3. Good variety of connection ports: HDMI, DVI, and a VGA.
4. The base has a good degree of upward tilt
Cons: 1. The base has a poor degree of downward tilt making necessary to be placed at or below eye level
2. There is a chance to get one that "flickers" this seems to happen more often if ASCR is turrned on but can be an issue when ASCR is off as well
Summary: Over all a great buy. Beautiful display that does inspire envy. The flicker issue has something to do with the contrast and seems to be very rare particularly rare for it to flicker with ASCR (a dynamic contrast setting) turned off. Great quality to price ratio. The integrated HDMI is a nice touch. I have seen multiple input types becoming more frequent in high end monitors and was pleased to find it in this under $300 model when most lower cost monitors have a DVI or two and maybe a VGA. Gaming on this monitor is just incredible. High resolution and a 2ms response time make blurring a thing of the past. The picture is so clear its like getting a marksmanship upgrade in first person shooters like Call of Duty 4. I take half a star for the possibility of getting one that flickers but I would recommend this monitor to any one looking for a great monitor at a bargain of a price.
