Pros: Hi, I've been using this monitor for several days. I can say that it is easy on the eyes, the matte finish really prevents any type of screen glare from any light. I haven't noticed any dead pixels or black light bleed. Windows reports it as 8-bit + Dithering, HW info reports it as 10 bit. Out of the box, with digital vibrance turned up the monitor has some really nice and rich colours. HDR mode works, although you can achieve similar colors without HDR and just tuning the settings. The Freesync is working as intended I think, it is matching my refresh rate to my frames in game. Im using a GTX 1080 so It's probably the middle point for this type of monitor. Some games look really awesome, WoW looks great, Apex looks great, Destiny 2 in HDR looks great. There can be a small issue though, where the monitor won't go into standby mode but it seems to be resolved by switching the "Auto Input selection" to "OFF" in the monitors settings it has fixed the issue for myself and several other users (credit to zeich)** Gsync works pretty well, if your able to achieve over 70 fps you wont even notice when the difference moving between 70 hz to 144 hz when in Gsync mode, it's really that smoooth. Gsync seems to work well untill you get to the 40-60 fps range where you might experience some light stuttering in some games like WoW. I haven't done any color calibration, im using the colours out of the box with my digital vibrance in NVCP to 90% and Windows HDR on full at all time, honestly it looks pretty amazing. White actually looks white. Black looks black for the most part Also I do not notice any ghosting in-game with the Speed overdrive mode. The software to control the settings is pretty easy to use, and works well. The live update and firmware update worked with no errors. Some people complain about the button on the back of the monitor but in my feeling of it the button is actually simple and easy to use. My overall conclusion, for the price point I think it's a steal, although I am not a pro with monitors but I did spend 3 weeks watching and comparing different reviews before I decided to buy this one. Overall I am happy with my purchase, colors look great and no noticeable ghosting in game. Hopefully some people found this review to be useful, and Please share your experiences with this monitor.

Cons: Some people have an issue where the monitor wont enter standby mode, this CAN BE RESOLVED by switching the Auto Input Selector to OFF in the monitors settings (navigate with the button not the software for this)

Overall Review: Yes, recommended.
