    "Excellent General Purpose monitor...I use it for my office monitor and have 3 computers connected to it. The auto switching is also nice!...Great for casual gaming….However… the 1ms response time mode has to be enabled in order for it to work, but the brightness drops so much that you can barely see anything. Watching movies, videos, and shows was enjoyable, but the amount of ghosting the screen made to keep up with high frame gaming was a little ridiculous. "
