From a developer - recommended

I bought this monitor for development. I was tired of the split monitors in the middle of my desk and my shoulder was hurting constantly from turning to one side or the other.

The good:

  • I can split my IDE into 1 file explorer, 2 small windows and 2 regular sized windows, all side-by-side, with my console beneath.
  • height is taller than I expected
  • resolution seems entirely appropriate for coding
  • build quality is great…not quite cinema display great but close

The bad:

  • whenever bluetooth audio is connected, there is this ridiculously annoying overlay in the bottom right
  • the smart energy saver turns off the monitor (good) but it blinks the power light constantly which is incredibly irritating. The only way to stop it appears to be to manually turn off/on your monitor when you need it
  • the speakers are pitiful…really. My 3+ year old macbook pro’s tinny speakers are preferable to these

Conclusion:
Recommended for development. The form factor is great and fonts render nice and smooth. They really should have had some foresight in the small issues I call “The bad”, and aside from the speakers, I hope they can address these in a firmware update.

Other:
I thought I would have a video up on the far corner, but as I got my desktop situated, I want to use this full monitor for development - it’s just so nice to have 4-up. I ended up putting my macbook pro to the right for video etc (that I rarely turn to see). I would love to find a way to have my macbook pro screen centered above the top if this display - that seems like the ultimate setup for me.

Best Buy Review by Asab :star::star::star::star::star:

Very good gaming monitor !

I bought this for my AMD computer system and it looks incredible! Free sync works like a charm ect. However I also tried my Intel system with it and a 1080 card even tho it has no G Sync I saw very little if any screen distortion. So weather you a AMD or GeForce person this monitor will do the trick and look great. Has fast response time very good color and the speakers are really good as well only thing I wish it had was HDR. So if your looking for best 21:9 monitor look no further this is it !!!!
