Needs more DP.
on 6 September 2017
Bought at around £230 with Prime, delivered next day no problems.
Box came through, packed very well no damage whatsoever on first view, in the package there was the screen with back of stand attached, the base for the stand, a power cable for both UK (three prong) & EU (two prong), an aux cable & a DVI connector, as well as a quick start guide, safety information, a VIP member notice & a CD with software installation & manual, each of which was individually packaged. I dislike the glossy finish as it does attract fingerprints extremely easily but they're easy to clean off so it's not exactly a problem.
All of this you can see in the photos, including the ports/cable holes on the back underside of the monitor.
Fitting the base of the stand to the leg requires no tools at all & is very easy to do as you just twist with the hook provided and it sits right in, the monitor easily turns from horizontal to vertical but bare in mind you do have to tilt the screen upwards a tiny bit before doing it as it'll hit the base even at the highest level but, that should be common sense.
As most people say the colour settings aren't great by default but it's very easy to change these, but I'll list my settings underneath;
Theater mode - 90 Brightness, 80 Contrast, 50 Saturation, Colour Temp User mode; Red 100 - Green 90 - Blue 89, Sharpness 40.
To get the full value of this monitor you will have to use the DisplayPort which unfortunately doesn't come with the monitor as HDMI caps the fps & there's no reason you should be using anything other than the DisplayPort with this monitor but a cable can be picked up on Amazon for under £5.
If everything goes well with this screen I will be buying another one in the future.
