  • Average performance with outrageous price tag.
    Reviewed by Dommbro - July 16, 2019

    Cons: Sound quality is extremely quiet. Got a ton of ghosting. Might've been due to clocking it to 144 Hz. Regardless, not a pleasant site. Comes out the box running 60 Hz. No real instructions to get it set to 144 Hz. Way more convoluted than it should've been. Several settings have to be adjusted beforehand. Which aren't explained with the documents you get. Pros: Color is spot on. Didn't notice bleeding even in dark scenes. Aesthetically pleasing. Externally and the screen itself when not gaming. Either way, this monitor is not worth the price tag. I could recommend it at $500 at best in this market.

  • Love it !
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Hector1908 - January 15, 2021

    The best thing about is the size of course . I chose this because its big and i like to split the screen when i game so i dont have to pause it . It could have been higher resolution but you get what you pay for it . Higher resolution was almost $500 more and at the moment could not afford it so i settled for this . Im honestly glad i did .I checked the prices all over for the same monitor and this is the best . Pros: 144hz, Curved, Good colors after customizing them on the monitor, vesa mounting is cool to because the stand is kinda big. High refresh rate with a great looking display , HDR is hit or miss while gaming, but videos look amazing . Cons : Few dead pixels on the screen on the arrival and the stand is kind of big . Other then that all good .

  • Much better than I anticipated
    Verified BuyerReviewed by bacbrakr - June 15, 2020

    I purchased to increase me work canvas as we started working from home. I am used to a multi-monitor setup at work, and even though I have a great Samsung 32", It is still a single monitor and limited. My home desk doesn't have room for 2 monitors, so this meets the bill. I purchased this thing, which is expensive, but the increased productivity has paid for itself. It is equivalent to 2 27" monitors, but without the bezels in the middle. Oh, and even though, I did not purchase this for gaming, gaming on this monitor is the best thing I have ever seen!!! YouTube has some 32:9 formatted content and wow! My only regret is that my video card cannot support both this monitor and my 4K projector, so I have to switch out the cables. This was frustrating, but this is ok.
