An absolute pleasure to have... 6/8/2020 8:25:44 AM

Pros: -The quality, especially after changing refresh rate to 144hz and enabling FreeSync 2, is out of this world!
-Ultrawide screen with gorgeous 4K display.
-Very easy install.
-Outstanding cable management for graphics card cables.

Cons: -NONE!!

Overall Review: -When installing the stand for the monitor, keep the monitor inside the box. It makes it a lot easier, and then just lift the monitor out of the box with the stand.
-I wish it came with a remote control because if you want to mess around with the settings, the button is at the bottom of the monitor and you can't really see it. But this is nowhere near enough to take away an egg. You get use to it after a bit of practice.

Great monitor, just know what you are getting into. 5/15/2020 6:54:59 AM

Pros: - Quality built monitor
- No dead pixels
- Fast 144Hz
- Very Immersive gaming
- Lower Res vs size makes it great for PvP FPS

Cons: - Text doesn't look great (-1 Star for this mostly)
- Monitor menu a little advanced for some (a lot of abbreviations without descriptions)
- Cable cover backplate was difficult to remove and replace, would like to see a better design for that
- Vert Res makes the desktop feel a bit cramped

Overall Review: So I am coming to this monitor from a 34" 21:9 IPS 3440x1440 60Hz monitor so my thoughts might not apply to you if you are coming from something with a lower resolution. Coming from 1440 to 1080 I didn't think would be a big deal, but it kinda is. Visually games are just not quite as good, my higher res IPS had much better picture. However, if you are a competitive FPS gamer I can say this monitor rocks. I was much better able to line up shots at farther distances quicker and I get why pro gamers use higher refresh/low res setups.

This is a gaming monitor best suited for competitive gamers or gamers who prioritize fov and quickness.

If you are looking for a mostly productivity/work monitor I would look elsewhere.

Convenient and Consistent 5/7/2020 8:54:36 AM

Pros: - easy to set up done in like 10 minutes and plugs and plays
- great for work. makes it so easy to work with 4 views (browser+console, editor, server logs or unreal engine and visual studio).
- been using close to a year and is very consistent.
- beautiful handling of steam games/epic games and the field of view is awesome.
- Can't wait (well a couple of years I can wait lol) for the newer model to compete with the equivalent samsung one.

Cons: - Mine came with a dead pixel or 2 but I'm not about that life and they're off in the top right corner where it's usually black anyway (editor is black).
- monitor base shape necessitates having a keyboard drawer (which makes sense, thing is wider than my tv)
- cheap plastic cover for connecting stuff broke a tiny latch and now is consequently not use-able

Overall Review: Overall product is great and has facilitated working. I'm not a huge dual monitor fan but I have been stuck with that until this. Love that you don't have to waste slots on media connectors with this monitor. Never going back.

Just Wow 2/3/2020 5:59:10 AM

Pros: Size,
Refresh Rate,

Cons: So far i hit a little snag putting it together but worked it out one of the wholes connecting the stand wasn't drilled out correctly but was a simple fix and all well plus it would hold up well on 3 screws anyway.

Overall Review: This monitor blew my socks off I absolutely love it. It plays all my games perfectly and I have improved my performance on fps's since for my 32 year old eyes I can see everything much more clearly. I highly recommend to anyone who wants a quality monitor at a good price compared to competitors.
