I had this monitor but sent it back.

Pros:
  • eliminates motion blur well with 120fps + strobing
  • image looks better than with TN
  • PWM free with brightness over 20

Cons:
  • fugly motion artifacts due to VA response times, even with or even because of strobing (yellow/green color mix-up, typical for MVA)
  • very bad colors for a VA panel (looks a little pale)
  • bad viewing angles, even for MVA
  • backlight bleeding, unworthy for a 500€ display
  • artifacts on the desktop with 120Hz input (at least for me, didn't happen with 60Hz)
  • a little too dark for desktop with strobing and daylight
  • input lag is noticible higher compared to 144Hz TN without strobing (which is more blurry of course, but imho still acceptable due to 1ms response time)
  • below 120fps you get judder with strobing. I personally prefer the motion blur in such cases.
  • the Eizo software didn't recognize the monitor
  • very bad coating. Looks like dirt, but still mirroring.
  • even more "blotches" than with my BenQ XL2411T. Again unworthy for this price.
  • imho it looks cheap and the bezel isn't as stable as you'd expect it from an expensive premium product.

Can't recommend it. Will get my QX2710 soon, hopefully it will be better overall.

I wouldn't even use it for half of the prize. wink.gif
I find the XL2411T a better compromise. Those VA response time artifacts are a no go for me, and actually the coating is too (added some more points I initially forgot).

IPS/PLS have got better in that department Imo.
