I picked this monitor out because I'd heard of the brand through watching eSports and I wanted to support a company that supported one of my interests. I expected to get a "normal monitor" experience and pay a slightly higher price for quality build. I was very wrong, the difference between gaming on this monitor and a regular one is night and day. Games feel entirely more "tactile" and real time. I am better able to place shots, see what's going on, and I feel like I have better control over my character. It is bright and crisp, colors are vivid, and the action is unlike anything I've played on before.
I don't know enough about monitor stats to tell you what specifically about it is better, but I can tell you I noticed an *immediate* improvement in my in-game performance once I switched. I an doing more damage, landing more shots and better able to perceive what's going on. High definition streaming video appears crisper than it used to.
If you are any kind of gamer or power-user on your PC I cannot recommend this monitor enough. I will never again think of displays as just interchangeable peripherals; even with a very high end gaming PC, you are not having the full experience unless you have a monitor that is comparable with this one.
