After much deliberation, and scanni9ng the mine filed of todays monitors. I finally settled on this one. After reading reviews on all types I found this to be the most consistant of the lot.
My previous monitor was a Samsung Syncmaster 226BW which was perfect in every way and I was worried if I could find one to match. To test it out I put on Battlefield 3, maxed out the resolutions and set graphics to as high as they could go. The monitor was excellent, no ghosting or blurring. The colours are so rich and definately an improvement from the Samsung. Trying Battlefield BC2 I noticed all the maps looked more in depth and once again the colours have changed the way the map looks for the better.
I was worried about having a 27" and only being able to go to 1080p, but I needn't have worried as it looks amazing all the same
For movies this is excellent too, I watched a couple of HD movies and once again these are crystal clear with vibrant colours. Browsing isn't a problem infact I could probably do it from accross the room!
There are a few presets on the monitor to change the way it displays. Sceneryl,standard,theatre,game and night mode. I tweaked the brightness in most of these dropping it down to 65-70 as it ewas just far too bright out of the box.
All in all I give this monitor 5 stars, I bought it at the start of this week when it was £250, a bargain for sure. Now I see it has gone up to £275 which in todays market is still a great bargain.
Delivery was as usual fast from Amazon, living in the Highlands it arrived within 2 days!
Anyone thinking of a 27" should definately consider this if the price stays under the £300 mark.
You'd be hard pushed to find a better deal.
