I bought this monitor when I purchased and built my gaming PC. The response time is excellent for gaming, there is hardly any ghosting or input lag at all. The colours are also superb giving rich detail to the graphics in first person shooters. I haven''t noticed any backlit bleed and the blacks are pretty good for an lcd monitor. I''ve hooked this up to my XBOX as well, given the good connection options available you could use this as a television as I do with a good tv tuner card. The resolution is the only area I can think of for improvement. This doesn''t really detract from the monitor though as full HD 1080p is good enough for most things I want to do. All in all I''m very happy with my monitor and I''m saving for a second to use in a duel monitor set-up. I highly recommend it.
