  • Amazing Monitor
    Reviewed by Zain123456 - November 27, 2020

    At first I was hesitating to buy this monitor because people were saying they have a high chance of coming with stuck or dead pixels. I was lucky enough to get it with no issues whatsoever! It’s looks great, the quality is amazing. Only thing is that the 170hz is a overclock. Factory settings is 144hz max. 165 is fine and you won’t see flicker but you might see some with 170hz. Other then that it’s an amazing monitor

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Great monitor, if you win panel lottery
    Reviewed by Gen - October 21, 2020

    Came with 4-5 stuck pixels with few around it randomly acting up. I would be returning the unit. And dead pixel/stuck pixel issue seems to be fairly common(from the reviews) with this monitor. If you win the panel lottery with this monitor its absolutely amazing looking

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
