My System Specs


Alright I got mine today, I haven't gotten to use it much but I set it up and had a look and I thought I'd go over my first impressions.

The bad:
I'll start off with build quality since the standards over there are a little different. The glossy finish and aesthetics look really nice a polished although it feels like a cheap plastics. The power, volume and brightness buttons are very poor quality and it takes wiggling to press them right and the protective film on the glossy sides is caught in a few seems.

The stand is a cheap plastic and obviously has no height adjustment, VESA mount is recommended.

The good:
The picture quality, color and overall display is great, I have minimal backlight bleed on the top and 3 dead pixels spread out in corners which are completely unnoticeable unless you turn the screen monotone and play "Where's Waldo". Picture motion while watching a blue-ray quality is very fluid.

Overall I'm very pleased from my first impression of the monitor, obviously being $300-600 cheaper than a dell u2711 my expectations weren't too high but for what it is - a 27 inch high resolution screen you get exactly what you think you're getting.
