Picture mode: Gaming 1
Color: User Specified: Red-95 Green-95 Blue-100
Color Range: 0-255 (be sure to set your color mode to full on your system/console!)
I had been using a 2011 26" Samsung LCD TV for the PS4 so I could game while still watching TV shows, movies, and sports on the big TV in my living room, so I opted for the 27" instead of 24" because I didn't want to go down in size even though some people seem to consider 24" perfect for gaming monitors. I figured that they're probably sitting at a desk up close to it, while I'm in my recliner, so the 27" would probably be a better fit.
So, is the monitor noticeably better? Well, it's hard for me to say with 100% certainty, but everything does "feel" better. While there are still obvious networking latency issues, since using this monitor I find myself yelling at the B.S. that often happens in PVP substantially less. My movement and aim even feel more precise. The only caveat that I should add is that in addition to getting the monitor, I also grabbed a Scuf gaming controller, so the tests aren't 100% scientific as I changed multiple variables at once.
Nevertheless, I've come away feeling that getting the monitor and the controller have both helped improve my game and were worthwhile purchases for someone who invests as much time as I do to gaming (it's also my career). While I'll never be "elite" tier, as I'm 43 years old and have the hand-eye coordination of someone 20+ years older, but I definitely feel like these two instruments have helped me play better. While I still have plenty of games where I get wrecked, I'm having substantially more games where my K/D ratio is in the 1.5 to 5.0 range, which wasn't common before. My lifetime K/D in the games is 0.97. Though, I should add that I personally credit the controller with 80% of my improvement and the monitor for about 20%.
My only gripe with the monitor is that I can't find any settings that I'm happy with for how everything looks. The FPS setting is too bright for my tastes and makes the game look like crap. It's probably beneficial for PVP to play like this, but I personally don't like the game looking super bright and washed out. I find that the Movie setting actually makes the game look the best, but the blacks are too dark and blend together, which can be a hindrance on certain maps. I won't deduct a point off of this review for this, however, as I'm sure there are settings that can work. I've just always been really bad at doing this kind of stuff. For instance, I have a dual monitor setup at work and, for the life of me, I can't get the two to look the same. So, I surely can't knock the monitor for my shortcomings as the end user.
In the end, I figure if you play a lot of games then you should definitely consider picking up one of these.
All the settings are great for different game types. I had to turn UP my control sensitivity for FPS games because the better response time / input lag is very noticeable.
Colors look amazing when set right. FPS mode is supposed to look washed out, but makes it easy to see other players.
You can tweak the colors using the terrible (and very unresponsive) OSD menu. You'll spend a half-hour pressing the cheap-feeling plastic buttons over and over and become frustrated because the buttons only respond once every second or two – press them any faster and it simply won't matter. All of this time spent, and you'll finally realize that you can't fix it – this monitor isn't about vibrant colors and deep contrast. It's about response time, refresh rate, and being able to see your enemies in shooter games – accomplished by presenting colors that are brighter and washed out. This might make it easier to see into the shadows in your favorite game, but in my opinion it just doesn't cut it. Everything I pull up on this monitor looks poor.
This is probably a minor point for most people, but I have one particular gripe about this monitor that I simply couldn't stomach: volume control. You'll have to dig into the OSD menu every time you want to change the volume if you decide to use the headphone jack on the back of the monitor. It's not easy, either – volume cannot be accessed without at least three or four levels of menus to stumble through. Yuck!
Thank you for taking the time to review your Zowie monitor, the feedback is certainly appreciated.
From your comments, I noticed at least one thing I may be able to help with. You can actually change it so the volume control is tied to a single button press. Bring up the menu and go down to System, then set one of the Custom Key settings to volume - this will make it so you don't have to navigate through the menu to get to the volume control.
I noticed as well that you said the coloring isn't very good. While the colors won't be as good as an IPS panel (TN panels are better for speed), the colors should at least be decent for normal use. To me, Standard and sRGB are typically the best looking picture modes on our gaming monitors. That's what I use daily both at work and at home, and the colors are good.
Again, thank you for the feedback!
