"Great monitor. This review completely misses the mark."5.0 starson by bstauffer
Pros: IPS panel, height-adjustable stand, pivot
Cons: Bright power light
Summary: I don't know if this reviewer looked at the same monitor, or perhaps had a defective one. At full contrast, it is blindingly bright.
This monitor has an IPS panel, and people that buy monitors with IPS panels are seeking accurate color rendition. They are not looking for colors that are "vibrant" or have "pop". The two monitors that are mentioned as alternatives both have inferior TN panels, and are not even in the same league as this one.
