perfect size, beautiful, and the IPS panel is awsome

To my surprise, 25" screens are quite large. The IPS display blew me away and I encountered no problems gaming on this piece of beauty. Only drawback is the lack of VESA mount capabilities and the stand wobbles a bit, but it is at an excellent price point and honestly, how often will that wobble be an issue if it is simply sitting on your desk, perfectly stationary, all day?

Great 1440p monitor for a decent price. I love this display. Looking to pick up a second one in the near future.

This monitor is beautiful. For an $200, a 1440p 60Hz IPS monitor? The only issue with it (and it is an issue) is that the stand sucks. Its very wobbly (even when I type) and there isn't really an option for VESA mounting, you have to jerry-rig it up for mounting. But for $200 where I grabbed it, its awesome.

I would hesitate to buy this at $340 (which is what it went up to after Newegg had a sale one it) due to the stand issues, but if you can find it for cheap, get it. The panel itself is awesome.

awesome display. speakers arent good, and no height adjustment. but its not bad enough to take away a star. hard to beat this at its price point!

A really cheap 1440, IPS, 4ms response time monitor. Can't believe its true but it is. Great display overall for gaming, video editing and photoshop. Buttons are kinda hard to access and the stand is kinda flimsy but I can overlook that 'cause my table doesn't shake that much, only when I'm raging in a game.

anyone thinking of going with 1440p i would recommend you do it because the picture clarity is very noticeable especially in games like battlefront. the ips display makes colors pop and it runs at 75 hz for me with no issues. also the price makes this monitor incredible for the value.

$260 for a 25in, 1440p, IPS monitor!!! Of course it's amazing!

This monitor is BEAUTIFUL. Image clarity and quality is sharp, the screen is a very nice size for desktops, it has very attractive aesthetics, and it's at a very nice price point. If you want a 1440p monitor at 60 Hz, this is the way to go.

This is a really good budget 2560x1440p monitor. The display is gorgeous and arrived without any dead pixels. The downside is the base is not the most sturdy (make sure you hold it down when plugging cables in or you'll push it right off the desk). Also, the base has some rough edges that can scratch your furniture. This happened to my coffee table.
