The flicker is real, 1080p @ 27"? 5/26/2020 4:15:15 PM

Pros: 165hz

Cons: Backlight flicker when playing windowed games.

Overall Review: Purchased because my ultrawide is in the shop. Coming from 3440x1440p144hz to 1920x1080p165hz.

Hard to notice to much of an improvement jumping from 144 to 165. Other than that, it's an OK secondary monitor if you can catch a deal. Backlight flocker is prominent when playing windowed games, full screen seems fine. 27" is the limit for 1080p, > 2ft viewing distance pixels begin to stand out. There are plenty of 1440p monitors with higher refresh rates that are only a bit more, and in the opinion of this reviewer it's worth the money.

This would be a good Monitor at a great price but 5/17/2020 6:48:57 PM

Pros: I'm happy with everything about this monitor except the Dead pixel

Cons: Dead pixel after 2 days

Overall Review: Pretty bummed out. This is a great monitor but all I can focus on is a tiny green dead pixel in the middle of my screen.

I cant go back 5/15/2020 3:56:03 PM

Pros: This is the first monitor I've bought that is above 60hz. I've heard breaking over 60 is a godsend but oh my lord my eyes will never be the same. My aim increased by 73%, my beard increased by 200% and my 3.5 inch floppy is now 6 inches. I've had people call me a hacker on warzone and I just tell them I'm on 165hz. They say I'm paying to win and I just agree. Whenever I leave my wife unsatisfied I get her to play Sims on ultra settings and then throw out the chair later. If anyone can recommend me some good chair covers please DM me immediately

Cons: Chairs are expensives

Overall Review: if you're upgrading from 60hz this is a fantastic first monitor for the price.
