AMAZING Monitor 2/24/2020 10:30:44 PM

Pros: This monitor is everything I was looking for. I play multiple games on it and it handles GREAT with AMAZING picture quality. If your into to wanting to have a 'Command Center' style gaming set up this is a PERFECT monitor for you. Very sturdy metal build to it.

Cons: It is a pretty big monitor but I would look at that as more of a PRO!

Overall Review: GREAT monitor. Arrival in perfect condition from Newegg. No CONS about it at this time.

Best monitor I have ever had! 2/19/2020 10:33:17 PM

Overall Review: I was very skeptical, spending so much money on a monitor, but I have not yet been disappointed. Granted this is my first night using it, but it's a jewel! No major bleeding, beautiful color, it's bright, it's big, and it's aesthetically pleasing! I am incredibly impressed with this monitor and it was very much worth the money spent. If you are looking for an Ultra Wide, 4k gaming monitor with G-Sync, then this is the one for you!

DOA 2/19/2020 9:51:14 AM

Pros: Comes nicely packed

Both Asus and Newegg no hassle to return

Cons: Did not get a manual, just a quick start sheet.

Power LED light on.... no picture other than an occasional very faint flashing. No button response. Building a new all Asus rig... did not work. Then tried on my older computer (the one I'm typing this review from) and same no-worky. Hope to update once I receive a new one.

Overall Review: Not so good on the first one, hoping bettere results from the second

Decent but not amazing 2/9/2020 9:40:27 PM

Pros: - GSYNC
- 165Hz
- Bright
- Decent color

Cons: - Some backlight bleed
- Lack of deep blacks
- Confusing/complicated color controls
- Dead(?) pixels

Overall Review: This is prob ably the best 1440p display out there, but that's really only because panel manufacturers have failed to make any meaningful advancements with 1440p in the past few years. It seems that most development efforts are focused on ultrawide and 4K despite the fact that GPUs still struggle to drive these panels to their full potential.

The backlight bleed is probably the worst aspect of this panel and it will be a dealbreaker for some. This goes hand in hand with the lack of deep blacks, due to the use of an IPS panel in this display. Those accustomed to OLED or VA panels will probably be particularly unsatisfied. What it looks like is a grayish glow at the corners of the display, which is worse on the bottom due to how manufacturing variance manifested with my particular unit. Moving closer to the display and/or viewing it at a more extreme angle makes the effect worse.

The other main issue is a small dark splotch which I assume to be dead pixels. It's only really noticeable on a flat white background and it isn't near the center of the display, so I didn't bother trying to get a replacement. 99% of the time it isn't an issue that I even notice. But again, this is something that will be unacceptable for some people.

More of an annoyance than anything, the color controls seem needlessly complicated. There are multiple "scene" modes, only one of which provides both full control and accurate color response. Inexplicably, this is the "racing" scene mode, which is not at all intuitive. It would be far more straightforward if the scene modes were done away with completely and the user given full control with the color and brightness sliders just like on every other monitor.

Once the correct settings are dialed in, however, the colors do look pretty good and accurate for a non-calibrated display - though, again, the black point leaves something to be desired.

In addition, the combination of GSYNC and high refresh rate is awesome. Input latency is very low and everything feels smooth thanks to the adaptive refresh rate. Overall, this is the main reason that I purchased this display, and in combination with the 1440p resolution is enough to compensate with the obvious shortcomings.

Bottom line, I don't think that this display is a good choice for people with very exacting standards for image quality. It's more suited to those who prioritize high and smooth framerates, and who want resolution over 1080p without breaking the bank on a 4K setup.

Dear Nigel,

Thanks for your review on this panel. Regarding the backlight bleed, have you tried adjusting your monitor's brightness? I.E. setting brightness between the ranges of 30-50, and blue Light features to level 4. Also, if you did not know, we offer Zero Bright Dot policy with our monitors if you're having pixels issues. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact me at cl-justin@asus.com. I'm here to assist our customers with our products and dedicated in bringing a resolution to all issues that they may come across. Your case for reference is #N200230829

Fantastic monitor 1/22/2020 10:36:55 AM

Pros: Absolutely love this monitor! Fantastic picture. Went up from a 24inch flat panel to this and I don’t think I’ll ever go back! I even went from a 1ms response monitor to this one with a 4ms response time and I can’t tell the difference.

Cons: The only complaints that I have are that the base takes up a lot of space on a desk, and the buttons on the back aren’t marked with anything that tell you what each button does or what menu they open up. And the final con I have is with Newegg itself. This product was shipped in the manufacturer box for the world to see what is sitting on my porch. It wasn’t placed in another box to hide what I purchased. Thankfully I shipped it to a UPS pick up location instead of my home so I could go get it rather than risk someone seeing what I purchased sitting on my doorstep to come and grab for themselves.

Overall Review: Would definitely recommend this to a friend, and don’t regret the purchase.
