Loving this monitor 9/17/2020 9:02:54 AM

Pros: This monitor has been a great buy. Love the curved ultra-wide screen. Allows me to place two full sized apps side by side (like an IDE and web browser) without overlapping to greatly improve my productivity. As far as gaming, I've read some critical reviews of this monitor, but I can't say I agree. Perhaps there are better monitors, but I find the colors and refresh rate of this to be very good and I have no complaints.

Cons: The gaming osd needs admin rights for some reason. It also takes a long time to go to sleep and wake compared to my other attached monitor, and this causes some desktop positioning problems for my multi-monitor setup. Maybe this has something to do with the 200Hz refresh rate, and my other monitor having only 60Hz.

Overall Review: I high recommend this. It seems like a good price and the display quality is very good for me. I admit I'm not a heavy gamer or esports player, and I mostly use it for office / work, but for the moderate gaming that I do, I feel that it has been a very good addition to my system.

Monitor is great but obviously has issues 9/15/2020 1:16:13 PM

Pros: 21:9 ratio is beautiful, almost all games support it and the only really downside to it seems to be watching youtube videos, but almost all movies fit the entire screen perfectly and it’s very satisfying, high refreshrate is smooth and looks good, very good colors and can be easily tuned to aamzing color accuracy if u need it to be, windows HDR is really really really bad for some reason and when it’s enabled the monitor become like super sharp and grainy for absolutely no reason, RGB looks super cool and every color blends very well, the monitor menu is basic and easy to get used to although I wish there was more picture control built in

Cons: The biggest by far issue for me would have to be the ghosting, I’ve been using only 144hz instead of it’s rated 200 due to extreme ghosting when the pixels have to chnage from dark colors into darker colors or vice versa, the ghosting is virtually gone when the screen is displaying mostly bright objects, the ghosting has gotten better over time like maybe the monitor has to be broken in further, I’ve been using it for about a week or two now and other than the ghosting it has performed great, and yes my graphics card and cpu and drivers can perfectly and easily handle the high refreshrates and I’m using DisplayPort not HDMI

Overall Review: Overall I’d say this monitor lives up to 90% of whay it claims with ghosting being really it’s only issue, if someone were to buy this monitor I’d recommend using 120hz or 144hz to begin with for a couple weeks then switching it up to 200hz, bc when I first used the monitor at 200hz it was virtually unviewable because of how much ghosting there was, also a small oversight when i bought this monitor is thay if your going to actually be using this for gaming you have to take into thought the FPS hit that your going to get due to running the higher resolution, in rainbow six siege on ultra settings i dropped about 20 frames when going to the monitor from a normal 1080p one

Good monitor for the price 9/5/2020 1:39:51 AM

Pros: If you’re coming from a 24” monitor this will feel like a big monitor! I struggled trying to find the right size (30”, 32” or 34”) but since I have a smaller desk this fit perfectly. It has really good colors, bright panel, and the build quality is good for the price.

Cons: Like the other reviews have pointed out, The ghosting is real on this monitor. I guess it doesn’t really bother me coming from a previous msi monitor that also had bad ghosting so I don’t really notice it. Also trying to run it at 200hz comes with a trade off of color accuracy, I simply tuned it down to 144hz which is perfect for that I needed. Mines came with a small defect, it seems the front panel wasn’t glued very well so there’s a part on top where the backlight shows through. I didn’t wanna return it given that it’s the only monitor I have, so I can live with that since it’s not that noticeable and I push the display back into place and it goes away.

Overall Review: If you’re looking for a budget monitor from a reputable brand then this is it! Maybe the ghosting is bad but if you’re not sensitive to it then you won’t ever notice it. Also this does support HDR and it looks fantastic... until you find out it doesn’t have local dimming arrays, meaning the picture will always looks super bright and it’s not usable.
