Awesome and easy to set up 9/23/2020 2:40:04 PM

Pros: Smooth af. So far I love this thing.

Cons: The only problem I have is that the monitor sits up reeeeally high and can't be dropped down. I might need to go with the VESA stand, but that's alright.

Overall Review: So far this thing is awesome

Happy with purchase, with a few caveats. 9/11/2020 11:24:01 AM

Pros: -Great color reproduction and brightness for games and media consumption, with good options for customization
-ELMB and G-Sync Compatible features work as expected, with correct input
-HDR is interesting to play with and passable for where the gaming monitor industry is today in 2020, in this price range
-No dead pixels or other QA issues with unit
-Narrow bezel, with clean aesthetics from the front

Cons: -Input ports limited to increasingly dated DP 1.2 and HDMI v2.0, preventing activation of certain features simultaneously, which is not an issue on newer standards; research for your needs
-As this is a more budget-to-mid-range product, the HDR lighting zones are not the best, making the effect a bit excessive at times, it is what it is
-Control buttons are awkwardly located and the setup is not ideal for day-to-day use
-The included stand is solid, however the desktop foot print is horrible, making it impossible to have two 27" monitors, side-to-side, on a typical desk (first world problems, I know)
-Disappointing cable management, but worked around it
-Personal preference, but the rear aesthetics are awful; looks like someone made a pair of sneakers for a 7-yo boy into a monitor

Overall Review: Purchased this as an upgrade from two older (2013) 60Hz, 2K, 27" ASUS monitors, I'm overall pleased with the purchase, this is a good monitor to be sure, it crams a lot of features and specs into an good value. If you can, it may be wise to hold off a purchase to 2021 to have updated video inputs, improved HDR, and design on the next gen issue of this product line.

Display looks great, but could use a few things 8/30/2020 9:56:13 AM

Pros: I switched to 1440 for the new 30X cards coming out. This is the highest frequency 1440 IP monitor out to my knowledge (as of 8/20/20). it runs a base clock of 144hz and is overclockable to 170hz.

Cons: -This monitor only has HDMI 2.0, and DP 1.2 ... which means HDR cannot opperate while using the display port, and FPS is limited when using HDR w/ HDMI. I dont understand why such outdated ports were used. HDMI2.0b, and DP1.4 exist.
-Overclocking only available on Display Port
-I have not been able to run anything with a high enough FPS to have to overclock this monitor yet, but when you do adjust the settings for overclocking you get a warning message saying that flickering may occur and you might have to reduce the frequency. once again, i have not been able to test this.

Overall Review: One downside is I wish it had at least Display Port 1.3 which would allow HDR with DP. Colors on monitor look great. My other monitor is an Acer Predator XB241H which is TN - and the difference is noticable, and i haven't even corrected color yet.
