    • IPS and 144Hz makes all the difference
      by

      from Kanata, ON on April 29, 2019

      I purchased this monitor about 3 weeks ago and it has made all the difference over the 24" ASUS monitor I had before. The two most noticeable differences is IPS gives me much better contrast (blacks are actually black) and small text is no longer pixelated (or staircased) due to the 144Hz refresh rate. I can get up to 119Hz on my ASUS GL 551 laptop. I use it mostly for working with 3D engineering applications so it has provided finer detail in my view-port configurations as well. When gaming, the 3ms response time didn't improve over my previous monitor (I mostly play racing games NFS, F1, Forza, etc.) I can't seem to set the 1ms MRPT as I don't think my Nvidia GTX 960M supports that - I may not be using the right settings though. I would have given it 5 stars except that I am experiencing blackouts that last about 3-4 seconds every once in a while, where the monitor just goes black and then comes back by itself (once it's been on for a while that seems to go away). I'm not sure if this is due to a faulty monitor or cabling or a needed driver (have the latest Nvidia driver to date 430.39) I've been reading about people having trouble with some of the latest Nvidia updates. I am extremely happy with this monitor and got it on sale to boot!
