Rated 5 out of 5 by PeBe Excellent quality picture with useful hardware features
The monitor arrived next day, as promised, and in good condition. Do take a moment to read the instructions on the outside of the box about 'how to open' - it is very well packed by an expert in oragami!
The picture quality is excellent using either HDMI or DisplayPort. It has two HDMI connectors and a normal and mini DisplayPort connector, plus a USB3 hub connection and USB3 hub ports to connect your devices (three under the back cover and one in the rear panel). The USB connections are very handy for keyboard and mouse connections (if a little OTT for USB3) if you are working in a traditional desktop set up.
The HDMI ports are MHL and so can be used to connect mobile phones etc, with an appropriate cable.
I have used HDMI and DisplayPort connects and also connected a DVI PC connection to the HDMI using a suitable cable and all worked fine.
There is also an audio out connection that can be used with the optional soundbar, or I have used it with stand alone desktop speakers.
Menu controls are via the four touch sensitive buttons on the bottom right of the bezel. They are a bit hit and miss as to whether your finger operates them but there is an optional 'beep' control that lets you know audibly if you have 'connected'.
Stand works well but doesn't raise as high as my previous LG monitor stand. Screen rotates to allow portrait orientation.
Size of screen is good for viewing two documents side by side which can be useful when editing and coordinating a series of documents.
Colour balance is very good and makes my laptop screen look weak by comparison (which is both a good and a bad thing - perhaps I now need a new laptop!).
I recommend this monitor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zapp Very impressed
I bought this monitor for use with a PC and Xbox One and have been extremely impressed so far. There is a good choice of connections and the colour reproduction is outstanding on the sRGB mode. The height/angle adjustment and overall build quality are great as well.

My only concern is that I had a new Dell laptop with a small screen adapter slot. I tried to use it on a computer with a 9 pin adapter but never managed to work it out.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great image quality, good feature set and tempting price make this a great all rounder.
Moved down (?) from a 37" LCD TV to one of these for my gaming PC - yes the screen was a lot smaller initially but the image quality was amazing in comparison. The stand was excellent allowing a great range of vertical positioning with ease. 2 additional monitors were purchased a month later to complete my sim racing rig - stands were boxed up and put in the loft - and 10 hours of woodwork later (excluding paint drying time overnight) my station was complete. All the screens colours/contrast match straight out the box and I am extremely happy with the quality of these monitors for my purpose. No hesitation in recommending them :-)

Rated 3 out of 5 by wwwolf Still good, but nowhere near as good as it was
I have a Mk1 version of this monitor, which I love. This is (as far as I can tell) the Mk3 version and it is nothing like as good. The USB is a bit erratic (but I've come across that in many devices -- I just take care where I plug in mission-critical devices!) But, much worse, the sharpness of the image and the colours are nothing like as good. I can see this every minute of every day, as I'm using the two side by side, and no amount of fiddling with the settings has been able to get it anywhere near as nice as the older one.
Having worked in the preipherals industry, I know how this works -- the design engineers make something that really works, and is comfortably in spec... then the cost-reduction department break it. It's probably still (just) within its spec, and it's still much better than many other monitors on the market at a comparable price, so I would still recommend it as value for money - but I would now recommend that, if you can , you do some research and spend a bit more if you can. (The older one I woudl simply have recommended unreservedly.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Viannio The monitor is great
The monitor has good crisp colours and is very good for photo editing. The on/off touch button is sometimes a little unresponsive.
