                    But it is a VA panel, what fuck is the point of all the other cool features when it is a piece of shit panel. In general this review or unboxing was not very helpful and the testing of the screen was poor.

                            honestly who gives a fuck about the viewing angles of a desktop monitor anyway, ips is pretty much a waste of money for a desktop monitor, on a laptop, phone, tv or tablet i can understand, but a desktop monitor, who cares, your sitting directly in front of it all the time anyway.
