  • Great monitor
    Reviewed by Hex - August 12, 2021

    I follow rtings.com as they do in-depth reviews on monitors and they ranked this as one of the best 1440p gaming monitor. My unit came without flaws so I'm satisfied and recommend it. If the price is too high, another recommendation would be the LG 27GP83B which I had before getting this one.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Great products!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Sal330CO - August 30, 2021

    Have three monitors, three mb’s, and three gpu’s from Asus…no issues with anything over three years. What I want to write about is this…why can’t I buy a new gpu from you? Why? I need two 3080ti’s to replace my 1080ti/2080ti…I have no issue with your msrp…but I do with the scalpers!

  • This is the one for 1440P gaming.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Anonymous reviewer - August 1, 2021

    Until I get a 4K monitor, this is the best monitor I have ever used. HDR support is pretty much universal with Win 11 and just makes every image, game, and video just pop. The high refresh rate is just icing and makes every game run smooth and lag free.

  • Great monitor, UI is a little confusing
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Anonymous123 - August 2, 2021

    I have had no problems with my monitor. The only thing that is stopping this from being five stars is that the ways in which to change things such as the brightness/frame rate was not entirely clear and took some time to figure out
