  • Amazing 1440p monitor
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Draxx - October 5, 2018

    This monitor is very expensive, but also very good. Breaking the 60hz barrier is such a huge difference if you have the gpu for it. Until there’s a high end gpu that can push 144+hz continuously, 1440p is the way to go. This monitor looks incredible. Some monitorphiles have complained about bright corners, but I can’t tell if this does or not. I use this for almost exclusively gaming and if I had a lighter corner when watching a letterboxed movie in a dark room I would do that in my living room. But sweet monitor! I’m probably 30% better at fps games even without practice. Being able to see people jump around up close is nice.

  • As of yet, the best 1440p 16:9 monitor!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by BoltzNBulletz - September 17, 2016

    All the features this monitor packs are executed perfectly! Monitor is well calibrated out of the box especialy on the default scenery mode. i had this monitor and the Acer's XB271HU side by side and I can tell u the screen on this one is much brighter (acers whites looks a bit more yellowish). The OSD/Menu is much easier to navigate on the Asus as it has a directional pad. The only downside this has over the acer is price. The acer equivalent of this model is around $100-200 cheaper. Overall this is a great masterful monitor. However i did return mine (along with the acer) because i got the 34 widescreen version of this which has roughly the same features but wider.

  • No Bleeding
    Reviewed by Stryf - November 22, 2016

    I went and bought online and then picked it up at the store. I changed the background color to all black and didn't see any bleeding. No clouding and some minor IPS glow but all monitors have IPS glow. GTX 970 on Witcher 3 at 40-59 fps with gsync on and I didn't see any tearing or noticable lag. Monitor Callibration: Brightness 42 | Contrast 47 | Saturation 50 | Red 100 |Green 95 | Blue 95 | Cool Color 0 | Deeps sleep off CON: Only thing I found bad with the monitor is there is no button to switch between Display Port and HDMI. The option is deep in the menu. Also, uncheck the deep sleep for both HDMI and DP as the computer might not display when turning on the PC.
