Lovers of High Definition content such as videos will appreciate that the screen uses a precise Full HD definition associated with a 16: 9 format. Many people will also be happy to get significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to IPS technology. However here the colorimetry is classic, inferior to more high-end IPS panels. In any case, since it is anti-reflective, the screen is more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a glossy panel.
