Pros: 280hz
ips
low latency

Cons: none so far

Overall Review: my favorite gaming monitor ever, and ive owned a lot. looks like I lucked out, no dead pixels. If you're like me and can tell the difference from 165hz to 240hz, you'll probably notice the jump from 240 to 280.

Just Don't Buy It. Dead Pixels Every Time 8/12/2020 6:15:43 PM

Pros: Smooth

ELMB

Cons: Panel Lottery
Dead Pixel Dead Pixel Dead Pixel

Overall Review: This is my second time getting this monitor. Both of which came with dead pixels. 1st one came with a cluster of dead pixels and a few of them off to the side. The second one. ( the one I'm talking about and using right now ) came with more dead pixels than the 1st. This one has SIX dead pixels. Clearly there's an issue with quality control on ASUS side. Which stinks because every monitor I own in my house is Asus. Clearly something is wrong on their end. Don't ignore the negative reviews. You have a pretty good chance of getting a panel with dead pixels as well. I'm sadly 2 for 2 here. I live stream full time for a living. A gaming monitor is huge for me. If you don't mind dead pixels go for it.

Dead pixels 7/15/2020 2:15:18 AM

Pros: It’s a really good monitor

Cons: Arrived with two dead pixels

Overall Review: Overall I would be very satisfied if I did t receive one with dead pixels. It’s very bothersome since it’s barely noticeable but I know it’s there. It’s also out of stock so I can’t even get a replacement. Very sad

Fast right out the box! 4/24/2020 10:04:33 AM

Pros: G-sync was super easy to setup, the monitor synced up with my desktop no problems. Desktop read 280hz refresh rate and so did warzone. Plays super smooth and for the price point you cant beat it. I would recommend this product to everyone looking for an affordable Monitor with G-sync and high refresh rate at 27inchs!

Cons: could have better HD color but im not complaining for the price.

Overall Review: runs great

Haven't noticed any downsides yet 3/30/2020 5:03:38 PM

Overall Review: No dead pixels, 280hz worked correctly though you'll need to scroll down in the resolution menu to PC 1080p instead of the default 1080p at the top to see 240hz.

Menu isn't too annoying, though it'd be nice if menu options had explanations. Colors look good, the blur is crazy low, and the crosshair option is nice.

100% worth the money. Best gaming screen for the money on the market right now. Fast IPS at 280hz with ULMB looks insane. When you drag around a file explorer window there's almost no blur on the lines/text. It's pretty cool.
