Pros: Got it with insurance promotion.
Overall Review: To redeem this product you need to open a 3dmark account and in that account it lets you activate your steam account in order for that key to be valid, if you go directly in to steam and just try to activate the key then it's not going to work. Hope this helps other people with the same problem.
Pros: great price.
looks great on and off.
stick controller in the back.
Cons: its not a true hdr monitor, but at this price it's not expected.
Overall Review: What a nice monitor for the price, the sweet spot of gaming too.
I have this monitor running with a xfx rx 5700 xt thicc iii ultra and an i5 9600k and my games run butter smooth in this monitor.
The controller stick in the back to control settings works like a charm unlike my Alienware gsync 240hz monitor in my other set up, which I have a hard time using its controller settings.
The monitor arrived in great condition without any dead, stuck pixels or problems of any kind, I would recommend it to any one looking for the sweet spot of 1440p and 165hz.
Pros: Beast of a card at 1440p.
Cons: Needs good air flow, can get a little loud when hot (75-80 degrees tops)
Overall Review: This card was for a new build that I did for my son. Paired it with an i5 9600k on a msi gaming plus z390 MB and everything has been running great from the beginning, no problems with drivers and crashes at all. It can get a little warm and loud but it don’t bother me.
I do have another similar build with a gtx 1080 ti and it runs cooler and quiet but performance wise the rx 5700 xt is up there with it in a lot of cases. So I think for its price you can’t beat the performance and it came with a few goodies which made the deal so much better. Thanks Newegg and AMD.
