How you'll ultimately feel about this monitor will depend on your impression of it going in. I preordered it based off press photos and hype teasing a sexy-thin border that screams "EYEFINITY BABY!" I won't be the only one to make that mistake either, the box simply doesn't paint a clear picture of what's inside.
Anyone who buys this for the thin bezel will be disappointed, and likely won't get past it. Those who go in knowing the "thin-bezel" is total BS, and doesn't want to mount it on anything, will find a monitor equally suitable for gaming, movies, and productivity. Lots of other displays fit that bill, too.
Using this monitor made me feel exactly like I did the last time I ordered a burger at BK. The menu showed me images of a succulent, juicy, two-inch thick sandwich topped with creamy mayo, farm-fresh cheese, and fresh vegetables exploding out the sides. What I got was typical fast-food fare, an overdone thin patty topped with generic cheese, a wimpy tomato, and lettuce that had been crisp yesterday.
It still tasted good, but I just simply couldn't enjoy it for what it was while severlely disappointed in what I was told it would be.
