I've had this monitor for a few days. My first impressions are very good. Screen is great with no dead pixels and even lighting.
Cons (and these I expected):
Stand isn't adjustable vertically
Speakers sound terrible. (tinny, which is to be expected on a monitor this skinny)
There's a gotcha I experienced hooking up my Macbook Pro via a Display Port to HDMI adapter. At first, choosing the 1080p resolution produces an image that's too large for the screen - that is the edges are chopped off. Adjusting the under/overscan slider makes it fit, but at the expense of being fuzzy. The solution is in the monitor's setting, under input select, each HDMI input has an AV/PC setting. Mine were set to AV by default. Switching that to PC made the image fit perfectly with no fuzzies.
