144hz 1ms Beautiful picture Excellent build quality



Highly recommended monitor, for gamers especially. It's a little pricey but you may find it's worth the price tag.

-1440p panel -144hz -the stand is awesome -pretty good picture oerall

-expensive but less so than the swift


Great monitor for 1440p gaming. works just as well as the ROG swift but works for amd cards as well. just remember to get something that can actually push the framerates

1440p 144hz 1ms Free-Sync Quality Less expensive compared to Rog Swift by a lot Strong stand

Picture preset looks really washed out


I've never used a TN panel before and was using an IPS before this. When I first got this I was shocked how washed out it looked and how bad the color was. Fortunately after calibrating it it looks a lot nicer and ever better than my IPS. I was going to buy ASUS's Rog Swift but then I saw this being cheaper by 200 bucks. I really wish Nvidia would support Free-Sync too but it's pretty impossible, at least not for this year or next. So the 300 series from AMD will be a really nice match with this monitor.

- good design - stable -picture quality

-need to play with the brightness function for a bit -factory presets are very sharp and eye hurting. Need to play around with the settings.


Before i go on I'm using I-5 3.8ghz and Asus GTX 980 video card. I've just received it today and I'm happy so far. Easy installation/setup. If you want 144hz/2560x1440 connect it to DisplayPort 1.2 that it comes with. When i switched from 60hz to 144hz option i was amazed by how much better it looks.I always heard stories how human eye would not notice anything over 60hz refresh rate. You won't know till you try it. I sure did notice a big difference. Very good quality, sharp image and great response time. Knock on wood (not to jinx it). I'm very happy so far. Expect a follow up review if something goes wrong.
