Kinda cool, but.. 9/12/2020 12:17:50 AM

Pros: Nice upgrade to my optix g27c2, 1440p looks way better than expected

Cons: The ghosting

Overall Review: The ghosting, it's real. Out of the box it was ridiculous, like moving the mouse cursor would make another black cursor appear behind it. Changing the osd settings to fastest response time and enabling free sync sort of helped. The ghosting is still very visible, but at least I'm no more getting eye cancer looking at it. The downside is that the fastest response time also makes the picture very dim and dull.
So I'm thinking that it might be faulty and I should get a replacement or a refund altogether

Definitely worth the price. 9/10/2020 5:12:59 PM

Pros: Size is awesome. At the right distance it's very immersive.
Pretty good OSD settings
Build quality is solid
Can't ever go back to 60hz after 144.
144hz at 1440p just looks insanely good

Cons: My biggest issue is that Newegg shipped this to me in the original MSI box with a shipping label slapped on the side. It's the most "gamer" looking box that literally screams "I'm expensive, steal me". If I would've known they would do that, I would've demanded signature upon delivery. All they have to do is stick it in a non-descript brown box. With how common package theft is, it's baffling that this can happen. I guarantee if I lived in an apartment building and they left this outside the door it would've gotten stolen.

There is a tiny bit of blurring on moving text. Probably a settings issue I haven't figured out.

Also the RGB on the back doesn't seem to work. I only tried getting it to work for about 30 seconds because I truly couldn't care less about that.

Overall Review: Definitely recommend this panel. It's not the highest end, but it's definitely worth the price. Just be prepared for how big it actually is if you're coming from say a 24" panel.

Good Quality & Price 8/29/2020 8:04:11 PM

Pros: - Graphics
- Settings Configuration
- multi input recognition

Cons: - Not Vesa friendly, as in most Vesa mounts will not fit and will require a spacer on the bolt.

- Power plug fits loosely and sometimes falls out under its own weight of the cord.

Overall Review: Good monitors for gaming! I definitely think the size is right in the sweet spot for gaming. I noticed it has dark spots in the screen but can only be seen during startup and shutdown of the monitor, at all other times seems to be fine and un affected. Delivery was slow and did not meet initial projected dates.

Five star not three 8/14/2020 2:09:52 AM

Pros: 1ms,144hz, 32” It’s exactly the feel I wanted. It is my third monitor I’ve tried for flight simming. I had the 49” asus but the height is only like 7” I did not like that. Then I went 35” lg and again height wise not so great. Between the proportionate size length and height and it’s curve it provided for me the best all around immersion feel. So big thumbs up for that.

Cons: Build quality, the strip around the outside edge going around the panel came with it peeling off. Va panel. Va is a con but it was expected. Having had a low refresh rate ips panel that this replaced it was a huge change. Ips is way more vibrant and rich in color. Also a con is that this monitor looks absolutely horrible out of the box and it took 3 days of tweaking between windows gamma and ods and the graphic cards display color settings. With a combination of all those I eliminated all issues and the grayish blueish look the monitor had and the ghosting a lot of people are complaining about. Thumbs down for msi for shipping the monitor in this state. Give me this monitor in nanoips and at same price and you got the best selling monitor of all time with a 4k option.

Overall Review: Overall for me as I knew exactly what I was buying and the issues and how to fix it, it is a five star for me. For some reason it will not let me change it from 3 to 5. It has given me exactly what I wanted and really exceeded my expectations. 1ms 144hz has now ruined my experience for gaming for ever. You will never look at a lower refresh rate the same. It is amazing. This monitor is tremendous bang for the buck!

Great Monitor 8/4/2020 8:19:18 AM

Pros: Just played Outer Worlds, and using this monitor was amazing! The colors were really vibrant, I really just enjoy this monitor.

Cons: None that I can think of. The color strip on the back is interesting, but I don't get a lot of use from them.

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this monitor.
