Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on March 22, 2020
Preface: I've been wanting to upgrade from a 60hz monitor to a 144hz one for awhile now and came across this model. I just recently upgraded my graphics card, and I wanted a display that would get the most out of my new GPU. After doing a bit of research it seems like at its price point this a good entry level high refresh rate monitor. I definitely notice the difference in games, specifically competitive FPS' (Apex and R6S for me) that tend to benefit the most from high refresh rates. While the colors out of the box are mediocre with a bit of manual configuration it can look pretty decent. Also make sure to go into your settings in your OS and turn on 144hz as the refresh rate because most likely it'll be set to 60hz by default until you change it. Overall I'm pretty happy with this and it should last me awhile for my use cases until I decide to dip into 1440p one day.

Pros:

- Good build quality for the price point
- DP cable included
- Easy to assemble
- Image quality itself is fairly crisp and the screen itself is bright
- 144hz with G-sync/Free-sync compatibility
- Adjustable/Sturdy stand
- VESA mount support
- Low profile appearance
- Has built-in Speakers *(I would not use them though, I'd recommend a standalone set of speakers/studio monitors or even headphones over these, they're that bad)

Cons:

- Mediocre colors out of the box that need some manual configuration
- Built-in Speakers are pretty crappy (Extremely tinny sounding and aren't very loud even at max volumes, I'm not even an audiophile and these are pretty meh at best if you try to convince yourself), but if for whatever reason you're in a pinch and you need them, they are there.

Despite being a bit critical in my review I'm giving this a 5 stars because it's competitive against other monitors at this price point for the level of quality being delivered. For a TN display it's actually quite impressive.
