Very very crisp
on 3 January 2013
I purchased this monitor because I wanted a new Full 1080p responsive monitor for gaming. I've found it. This is an excellent monitor with it's 2ms response time to cut out blur. The colours are very very good, I'm seeing things on websites that I've never seen before, the definition and the clarity is excellent. The contrast is outstanding, Blacks are black and whites are white making shadowy scenes looks fantastic.
The settings are easy to grasp with a multitude of fancy features including the word "Magic", for example Magic Brightness and Magic Angle, essentially manufacture names for things that already exist but what they like to cool a new more snazzy name. Although the Intelligent colour setting is actually very good. There are also a few Eco settings for you to play around with, I use the 75% eco setting because it simply adjusts the brightness/contrast down to a level where it uses less electricity, although for me It gives me the added bonus of giving the best picture quality too.
The "buttons" on the front are touch buttons, much like the return and menu keys on the Galaxy S3, nice to use, responsive.
Okay, the monitor does have inbuilt speakers, now when buying this you should not use that as a selling point, but more of a feature because to be honest, they're awful. Very tinny and just lack bass so the sound is mediocre.
I've even plugged my phone in to it with the supplied cable, that's what MHL means if your wondering, basically you can plug your SAMSUNG phone into it. I happen to have one of the supported phones (S2). It's a nice touch, charges it too whilst going on Youtube or showing your cool apps to an audience, the sound comes out of the monitor when using this feature.
I would definably recommend this to everyone, it's a good monitor suitable for gaming and other computery things
