Fast and Great Color 5/26/2020 5:19:37 PM

Pros: Coming from an old LED TN panel from 2012 this was a significant upgrade! Adaptive sync is compatible with my 2080 Super. Great color and definitely a good value.

Cons: Unable to figure out how to get the monitor to shut off the LED and go into full standby mode. This requires me to manually press the power button to get the screen to shut off at night.

Overall Review: Recommended if you are looking for a fast response 1080 monitor. I will likely buy a 1440 monitor to go with this for games where I'm less concerned about frame rate (non shooters).

just.......WOW 5/13/2020 8:48:21 PM

Pros: Nice picture, super fast response time, rgb strip on back, 240hz ips

Cons: None as of now

Overall Review: Awesome monitor. Bought it to replace a 144hz TN and don’t regret anything. I play a lot of fast FPS games like Quake, Doom, CS:GO, etc. and this monitor is absolutely wonderful for these types of games. After a few minor changes to the factory settings this monitor looks as good as it is buttery smooth. 10/10 would buy again!
