  • Great monitor, weird controls!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by TokoYaro - August 1, 2020

    I bought this as a lower-cost gaming monitor; it works well for that function. 1ms of inout.lag, 4K, two HDMI ports, and a single 3.5mm audio output. The video quality great, and my only gripe is a lacking USB port. The controls... well I still can't get used to them. Adjusting the volume on this thing is like trying to develop a psychological test to determine if you have dementia, and I am know concered I'm at risk. Every time I adjust any setting, it becomes comedy, as this 30-something tries to click around just to turn down the volume. It's a good monitor, but has curious flaws.

  • Great for gaming. Not so much for 4K streaming
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Benq - February 1, 2020

    This does well with games with its low latency but has pretty bad black levels. Black areas of movies coming blocky and pixelated looking. Maybe it’s the Xbox graphics but I get it even when connected to my cable Box. HDR isn’t good at all. It just sort of brightens the backlight. I never use it. If you set all the levels and colors manually it can look pretty nice with Netflix. For gaming it’s great. Games want fast response and less screen tearing and jittering and this hits those marks. Use it for what it’s supposed to be for and you’ll be fine

  • Great
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Goose - December 26, 2019

    I’m using this for my ps4 pro. It’s simple to set up and I have to say I’m very satisfied with my purchase. Picture is pretty dang good and the 1millisecond input lag has been game changing. I don’t regret my purchase one bit. Only thing I have to say can be annoying is the hdr comes on automatic with compatible games. With some games the colors can get a bit washed out. It’s a pain but you can turn off hdr on your console if it bothers you that much. Other than that it’s great.
