Picked up two of these, before I saw this deal posted actually. I'm no monitor connoisseur, and I do exactly zero gaming, but I've got both of them hooked up right now and they look fantastic to me. Particularly the brightness and color seem to be (very subjectively) great!
Viewing angle very good as well; I'm sitting way to close to these, and the variation in coloring when I move my head side to side is almost negligible.
There are a number of 27in monitors dipping into this price point; this checks a good number of boxes for me:
1) Bright; 300nits, and I believe it. Much brighter than my previous monitors (3yrs? old?)
2) Good contrast; forget about the "dynamic" contrast; the baseline contrast is 3000:1; it's a VA, not an IPS, which I assume explains that.
3) VESA mounting pattern already in the monitor chassis; no need to purchase some sort of mounting adapter.
4) fast response time; 4ms (rated anyway; I have not tested or anything like that)

Things I don't care about, but others might, that are missing from this monitor:
-IPS display (I seriously can't see that it would make that much difference )
-super-high refresh rates
-speakers
-displayport inputs

Anyway, it was exactly what I was looking for at just the right price.
