Solid Performer as a PS4 Monitor
Posted by: Tornado from: on
This is one of several screens I have on my desk in my 'man cave'. It is currently only being used as a PS4 monitor. It has worked excellent for this. Everything from slower paced RPG games to fast paced FPS action, Ive not had a single complaint with its performance. Picture is great, colors are very good. The only faults you may find were if you were to do in depth testing on its color accuracy and the like, but 99% of users arent this picky. Most of the reviews around the web were favorable for the monitor, mostly nixing it a little because at its retail price its a tad over priced for its feature set. Bestbuy seems to run this monitor on sale a lot however I have noticed.
As stated image quality will not disappoint. The monitor is very lightweight, and the stand feels sturdy enough. It can be tilted up and down to different angles but thats about all the adjustment options you get. The monitor also has a headphone jack, and this was a small but important factor for me. It enables me to input audio via HDMI from ps4, then output the audio via headphone jack to my 2.1 computer speaker set up. It works well. Without the headphone jack Id have to swap cables from the ps4 everytime I wanted to swap from my headset to my speakers, so this was a huge selling point for me with this monitor.
I would note my copy did have one dead pixel right in the middle of the left 1/3rd of the screen. I sit back about 3 to 4 feet when playing on it though and I never notice it unless Im staring at a light, stationary screen, then the tiny black speck can be seen. In games and in movies you never notice it though.
Couple things I would add - do not judge the monitor based on how it looks in bestbuy. I know monitors always look terrible in the store because they run them all on the oldest connection (RGB) available, and the picture often looks skewed and fuzzy. Aspect ratios look off on about half the screens in their monitor section, and they do a poor job presenting their actual potential. When hooked up to an HDMI or Display Port connection its image quality is very respectable among LED monitors.
Does the curve matter? Does it add anything? In my gaming and movie viewing I dont feel it adds anything. I dont even really notice its curved. Curved screens are supposed to be a little more "natural" for the human eye, and make for "easier" or more "relaxed" viewing for the eye, or so Ive read. Maybe that is happening? If so its not anything you will really notice. I would add thought that it doesnt take away from the monitor either. It doesnt skew or distort the image in any way on screen.
I was looking for a solid 27" screen for my PS4, so I could use the ps4 at my big L desk. This montior has worked for that very well. I dont really have anything negative to say about it. At $350 it is a tad over priced for its feature set however, but with regular sales on it, you can find it under $300 at bestbuy all the time.
I would rate it at 4.5 / 5 stars.

Received Broken Product which was not replaced
Posted by: Dharmanshu from: on
I bought this product at the best buy store in Bellevue. I took it home and low and behold it was broken. A crack on the lcd screen. My biggest mistake was to touch the screen to inspect it. Took it back immediately the next day and they refused to take it back saying the screen has been touched and we cannot replace. Quoting the sales person "We are not really obliged to do anything but we can give you a 10% discount if you buy another monitor". Needless to say I walked out, left the monitor there and will not be buying anything from best buy again. Tried reaching out to customer care but all they did was put me on long holds trying to connect me to regional manager.

I really like my monitor purchase. I wanted to upgrade my monitor size from 22 inch to 27 inch. I glad it did. The picture is great. The size is just right and I like the curved screen. One start up TIP. Move / drag one or two desktop icons to the far right side of the screen, then run the "auto adjustment". The monitor must need a reference on the right side of the screen for the "auto adjustment" to work correctly.

I was using a small HDTV (32") as my monitor and it was just taking too much space on my desk. I didn't want to give up the resolution (1920x1080) and I saw this. The picture quality is excellent, I love the curved screen, about the only thing that I can say that is bad about the monitor is the adjustment button is on the back side and is very finicky.

Great so far!

I have used this monitor daily for a month now, and it has been great. Looks great next to my MacBookPro, and colors are rich. No issues thus far.

Built in speakers led us to the larger sized model, and we have not been disappointed. Nice resolution and no glare.

I saw this in the store and it caught my attention right away. My old monitor, a 23" Samsung, was still giving great service after many years, but the new one's curved 27" screen just simply looked nicer, so I decided I was ready for an upgrade. After about a month of steady use, I can report that it was a great purchase. It's much easier on my eyes, and it's almost fun to do my work now. The built in speakers are nice too, and the sleek lines and pedestal look great on my desk.
