If you're going to buy a gaming monitor then this is a must consider! crystal sharp HD image with great response time. and the option menu and pre-saved settings are a must, you can set the monitor up how you like it for E.G Gaming - Movies - Eye Saver. and at the click of a button (three at the the bottom right under the monitor) you can flip between the pre-saved settings. whilst relaxing just before going to bed i flip to Eye-Saver mode, prefect after a long day gaming !
