First Full-HD monitor. Works great for moderate gaming and hobbyist graphic design. The only two issues I've had with it are 1) Glare off of nearby lights, which is a given for a sub-$175 monitor and 2) Sometimes colors look a bit washed out compared to say, my cell phones AMOLED display. I've tweaked the display settings a bit but it really depends on what you are doing. I'd recommend also making sure your computer's graphics settings are set to Full Dynamic Range. This improves dark spots a lot.
