  • great gaming monitor
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Jeanpcollan - August 20, 2020

    The ASUS monitor makes any PC GAME look awesome, with the right coloring and set up you will have the best details towards any game. There is a downside towards having this monitor and is the speaker from the monitor. If you put the volume up for this monitor you can barely hear anything, I would highly recommend the consumer to buy a set of speakers for this particular monitor. Also, for those people thinking of using this monitor for video editing or graphic design it won't look great because the images will look really saturated and the brightness is really low. Overall, great monitor for those of you using it for gaming and budget value.

    I read a lot about a lot of different monitors. And monitors vs TV differences. This monitor has been treating me very well for gaming and even just watching shows. Pixels are great along with different quality settings. And the rotating feature is amazing for laying down and just watching stuff. I highly recommend

  • I love this Monitor, well I did at first
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Nway0455 - June 27, 2020

    I just got this monitor yesterday to go along with my new PC build. At first everything was fine a little IPS glow but it’s actually improved there. At first I was happy as could be with this monitor until today I noticed a very small purple dot, come to find out it’s either a Hot, Dead or stuck pixel that I can’t seem to fix with the simple tools online. If I could exchange it I would but the only option is to return it which I don’t want to do considering I’d be out of a monitor for a few days and the pixel showing is very small but it’s near hip fire reticle so impossible not to see. If it fixes itself which I’ve heard can happen I’ll update my review.
