I have one, and it was a pain.  They shipped the 1600x display to me first
time around, and then stopped with the FHD version for a while.

The colour is good, but after three years the brightness (which was never
great) is pretty terrible.  I now dislike all those folks who use grey on
white text on their web pages, even in optimal lighting conditions, because it
makes it so hard to read them. :/

So, yeah: not bad, but brightness is what lets it down.
