It has a wide gamut, covering 99% sRGB color which is then illuminated by a brightness that caps out at 350 nits, and it supports HDR10. You've got a couple of video input options to choose from including one HDMI port and one DisplayPort input. A 3.5mm jack is included for connecting external audio devices, as well. A fully adjustable stand is provided, and as a flat monitor, this won't be weird to pivot into portrait mode.
