Pros: vibrant, 2ms response time, 8000:1 DCR 2000:1 static I believe.
Cons: Stand is somewhat troublesome, It took me a while to figure out how it went together. [monitor is detached from stand when in box]. It took quite a bit of pressure to get the stand and monitor together. A bit scary with a new product.
-a bit of backlight bleeding, however its barely noticeable.
-stand has no real swivel, yet it does. stand rotates with monitor. no height adjustment.
I love this monitor, I'm thinking of buying another.
