Rated 4 out of 5 by PeterFromMelbourne Exceptionaly clear screen, some what difficult to use.
I have owned this product for 3 weeks and love the clarity of the monitor, I use it mainly for office applications (Outlook, Excel, Word), the text is vibrant and clear and of course the graphics are sensational when I am on the internet or inserting pictures into documents. Now for the let downs, I previously had a 2005 professional monitor from a competitor it was standard definition same 43 inch size, but it had a remote control, due to the size of this beast its not as if your face is up against the screen but a good arms length away from you and to have to stand up and lean across the desk and reach behind the monitor to change any settings is a real time waster not to mention a pain in the butt. I myself would gladly pay more if they made this an option, besides the ease of use I am delighted with the performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wattsie Good monitor, but can do with some improvements
Love the monitor's size and resolution, large and shiny, but could do with some improvements.
Display Port interface disables when going into sleep mode, thus the computer registers that the monitor has been disconnected. So the screen layout changes.
Would be nice to have a low power option, where DP and USB stay active while the screen is sleeping.
(**work around** no workaround, just have to suffer windows moving and resizing)
USB disabled when in sleep mode, so if you have a keyboard or external drive connected, they get forcibly disconnected. Also, with keyboard connected, you cannot wake the computer
(**work around** connect keyboards and mice directly to computer not monitor)
No easy access to the volume controls. When connected to a MAC computer, with sound going via Display Port, OSX disabled volume control, so you need to use the JOB button on the back of the monitor. This button is hard to reach, you also need to reconfigure button to enable to volume up/down, else you need to go into the OSD each time.. Would be much better to either provide a app or driver or a remote control to enable volume control
(**work around** connect via 3.5mm)
