First off this monitor is on sale on Newegg right now for $169.99 with free shipping, and for my state, no tax. So cool, I think I got a decent deal, just got it in mail, hook it all up, not thinking to much about it. Just another monitor, another day. This monitor comes pre-calibrated... great for it's price point. Install monitor drivers, reboot. HOLY CRAP the most amazing picture I have ever seen in my life. 0.247 pixel pitch, lowest possible for 1080p, most other 22" monitors only have .248. This monitor has the 3H anti-glare (and I can def tell it works compared to my old TN panel with no anti-glare coating). So yeah, no calibration needed, I tested several games... black levels and white levels... all great. Colors are so beautiful, I had no idea TN panels washed colors out so much. No ghosting issues in games. Anyways, 10/10 in my book. If your looking to go IPS now is the time, get this monitor, also comes with 1 year extended warranty right now.
