    Not everyone needs a gaming monitor with 144Hz high refresh rate, G-Sync, or 100% coverage of the Adobe RGB color space; some people - dare I say most? - just want a decent 1920 x 1080P HD monitor at a good price…

    cool! I have a 100 dollar acer monitor from a few years ago, anlthough there is a new one out now. it is 75hz, and still the same price, with a similarly good IPS panel, but the build quality is even worse. otherwise, its a solid screen, but I havent cracked mine open yet.

      @Sir Elon I don't have a lot of experience with many different monitors. I think it's really good for gaming. Beautiful image quality and 70hz is plenty responsive for me. Compared to 144hz it might be crap, I don't know.

    Monitor stand "short" is very, very relative (your chair and desk heights). It's not short at all, actually... Fool. I don't think I've ever - not even in videos or photos or any of your own monitors -seen a higher stand. Which would be utterly, utterly ridiculous, in most cases., as it seems already fairly high (the moment you talk about this element - I literally thought it looked too high and that THIS could be a problem in lack of adjustion).
