Decent product

LG 24GM79G-B 24" Black FreeSync Gaming Monitor, 1920 x 1080 144 Hz Refresh Rate, 1ms (MBR), 350 cd/m2, HDMI, DisplayPort, USB 3.0, Height Adjustable, On-screen Control
LG 24GM79G-B 24" Black FreeSync Gaming Monitor, 1920 x 1080 144 Hz Refresh Rate, 1ms (MBR), 350 cd/m2, HDMI, DisplayPort, USB 3.0, Height Adjustable, On-screen Control

Pros: 144mhz refresh AMD Freesync Nice base Good range of motion

Cons: Controls are a hot mess to set up the colors and brightness. I actually hooked up my older monitor to try to help calibrate the colors and brightness. First off you HAVE to DISABLE the 1ms motion blur stuff or you will get wave like lines on the monitor. Way to go LG... then you have to use the gaming "black stabilizer" in conjunction w/ the menu settings to try to get the brightness correct. Brightness.. did i say brightness. They way the monitor ships its at 100% max for brightness and sharpness. Its like staring into a super nova at noon. Next up we have blackness and whiteness. I've spent 2 or 3 hours trying to get this thing just right and its no easy task since you have to work in the main menu AND the gaming menu (remember that black stabilizer?) Its not a bad monitor but I just do not ever remember in my entire 25 of computing having to spend this much time trying to fix a product. Having had LG monitors before I'm very iffy on this one. Maybe its b/c I'm old and cantankerous or maybe it is just b/c I know what I like.

Meh

Pros: It cools things.

Cons: The fan like to have a whine in them that comes and goes. I've isolated the fan in question and yes it is from this product. It is a little annoying as I'm going for a very quite build. I'll most likely just replace the fans.

Overall Review: I'd say go w/ a Corsair over this but I wanted to try something different.

Good bang for the buck
