Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surpassed my expectations This monitor is a dark horse, it looks pretty normal and to be honest doesn't look exciting when you get it out the box and set up on your desk, I must say the mount is tool-less and snaps together with solid results, and its very sturdy. Installation of this monitor will take less than 10 minutes with most of your time taken up removing your old monitor as its that easy to set up. all the inputs you need are on the back and the inclusion of the usb is ideal for mounting webcams etc to the top of the screen. the headphone holder on the support mount is very useful. picture quality is great for a 1920 x 1080 native res monitor. reaction times are satisfyingly fast and ideal for all game types with virtually no lag at all. the tilt height adjustment and pivot (turn the screen 90degrees for a portrait display) are great additions PROS, well crafted and sturdy monitor. fast reactions CONS, No built in sound, would be handy for using ps4 on etc instead you have to use the headphone jack at side to get audio out.
