Great monitor but came with broken cable 7/1/2020 8:42:20 AM

Pros: 180 hertz overclock is unbeatable
Super bright, super smooth gameplay
Easy enough to set up
Analog stick is a fun way to maneuver settings

Cons: Came with a broken DP cable so I spent over an hour and a half trying to figure out why the monitor wouldn’t work with any resolution setting. Ended up switching the cables from my old monitor and then everything worked as it should.

Overall Review: If you buy it on sale it’s 100% worth it, just make sure the cables are good before you tear your hair out trying to solve an easy fix.

Solid Monitor 6/29/2020 9:29:22 AM

Pros: Monitor is very solid. Can use in landscape or portrait. All cables were provided. Defaults to 144Hz. Overclocking to 165Hz was just going into the settings. Good colors / brightness for games that compliment vibrant colorful environments. Definitely see the upgrade in performance from my 60Hz moniter in FPS games

Cons: No cons for me

Overall Review: Highly recommended. Suggested to lower the brightness / use blue filter setting for longer gaming sessions. Make sure you have enough desk space if you run a triple monitor setup

Works Great, but... 6/29/2020 7:44:51 AM

Pros: - all the perks that most modern ASUS gaming monitors come with
- G-Sync compatible
- good refresh rate

Cons: - mine came with a very stuck pixel

Overall Review: Great monitor, noticeably better and smoother refresh rates that other monitors I've had in the past. Only complaint is the monitor came with a stuck pixel that has not gone away. Not covered by warranty and not worth trying to replace, but still sucks and wish it had been caught by QC.

Works Great! 6/28/2020 12:18:56 PM

Pros: Cheap
Makes the experience better with the ability to overclock

Cons: Reports say dead pixels on screen but haven't had any in the time I had this monitor

Overall Review: The thing is people say that they get dead pixels, I haven't seen any and it's been about 2 months since I had got this monitor. I mainly play games that take a huge amount of response time (games like Final Fantasy XIV) and the game works really well with it. Honestly this is a great monitor and honestly since having this monitor I kinda can't go back to anything other then a 144Hz or higher monitor cause it looks so nice! 1920x1080 makes it look great too even though that it's cheap it's pretty good for a cheap monitor just make sure you are using a NVIDIA graphics card and something that can handle that said graphics card.

Grat monitor 6/11/2020 2:13:51 PM

Pros: Looks fantastic
No screen issues at all
comes with HDMI and DP cables

Cons: Like others have said about IPS panels it has a bit of backlight bleed coming through the edges you can see in a really dark room with a black screen. But no biggies for me.

Overall Review: I believe this is one of the best 27 inch 1440p 165mhz monitors you can buy. Totally worth the money in my case, no shipping issues and worked perfectly out of the box.

Quality gaming monitor 6/11/2020 10:14:22 AM

Pros: low response time and high refresh rate make this monitor perfect for gaming. The size is comfortable and should look good in most gaming setups, the colors are quite accurate and the monitor has different modes to switch to.

Cons: Smudges easily

Overall Review: This monitor has an overall very good and sturdy design with much to offer. The monitor has up to 165hz refresh rate and a very low response time to make gaming smooth. The monitor also is very customizable from its built in settings allowing for multiple modes and many other features. Overall the monitor is great for gaming or even a secondary monitor and will last you awhile with its excellent build quality.
