Pros: Everything

Cons: It can’t take a punch

Overall Review: Was really great until I got angry and punched it a little too hard I guess. Recommend the buy just be gentle with it I suppose.

Good only for certain people. 8/26/2020 1:23:52 PM

Pros: - Curved screen is very nice
- Height/tilt adjustments are great
- Plenty of options and settings to try out

Cons: - Ghosting is visible both at 144hz and 165hz. Worse at 165hz.

Overall Review: I would NOT recommend this to play games. This is a VA panel monitor so unfortunately ghosting is an inevitability, and it is very obvious on both 165hz and 144hz and for someone like me it’s a bummer to see. However if you just want a good browsing monitor, a monitor for movies or you don’t care for unavoidable ghosting, it’s a great curved monitor.

Monitor stopped working 4 months after purchase 8/26/2020 12:22:54 PM

Pros: Decent colors and picture quality and very easy to config

Cons: Backlight bleed is very noticeable on loading screens but not noticeable in games.

Overall Review: Monitor stopped working after only 4 months of use, like a completely black screen, not even the Asus branding shows up anymore. It's a very decent monitor for the price but I'm very disappointed that it doesn't work anymore.

I love it! 8/25/2020 12:04:57 PM

Pros: Easy to assemble -- pro tip use packaging material to support the front of the monitor.

Cons: No manual in box -- pro tip download from ASUS

Overall Review: I typically wait for my husband to help me set up my monitors, however I decided to try to put this one together myself.
I used the packaging materials to support the monitor while setting it up. This made attaching the base and plugging the cables easy.
My box didn't have the monitor's manual. So I didn't know exactly how to use the back control panel. We downloaded a PDF from ASUS. Problem solved!
WIth that solved I was able to easily adjust the monitor's sound, everything else seemed good to go.
I have been using the product for over a week now and all I can say is it is perfect. It really has brought some things out in Destiny 2 that I have been missing.


THIS IS A FREESYNC MONITOR, OPTIMIZED FOR AMD RADEON, IF YOU WANT G SYNC GO BUY A G SYNC MONITOR NOT THIS ONE.

Very good product (and excellent support from newegg) 8/25/2020 9:04:21 AM

Pros: Great picture quality
Vivid colors that aren't over the top
Really appreciate the higher refresh rate (just upgraded from 60hz finally)

Cons: I'm not too happy about the buttons for power and monitor adjustment being on the back, but it is not a huge issue

Overall Review: I'm really loving this monitor, I wasn't sure how I felt about the curve in the monitor at first... but I don't even notice it anymore. I haven't spent enough time using it yet to know how it makes a difference from a flat screen monitor. Overall I think it is a good choice personally.

Insane monitor 8/25/2020 8:43:21 AM

Pros: refresh rate is a game changer, absolutely beautiful monitor, adjustability is super convenient for all use cases. Crisp image and the included presets are actually pretty great for the average user IMO.

Cons: The included DP and HDMI cables are clunky and do not exactly fit very well through the cable management route. There is a cover for the hole in the stand where cables are intended to be routed through which I had to remove as with it on it was difficult to adjust the height of the monitor due to the DP cables thickness

Overall Review: This is a phenomenal monitor, coming from a generic 22 inch Acer monitor it is everything I need in a monitor and more. It’s not straining on my eyes so I can spend 10-12 hours a day on it no problem, perfect for studying and working and beyond perfect for gaming at a high refresh rate and resolution. I noticed that a few reviews mentioned getting dead pixels rather quickly. I’ve had the monitor for approximately 3 weeks and haven’t had any issues like that whatsoever.
