Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on July 18, 2018
Having looked into Freesync monitors when they were first released, I was quite surprised when I saw that it was possible to get a 144Hz Freesync display for sub-$200 (at time of writing). Having owned this monitor for a couple of months, I'll list off the plus-cons below along with my system specs.

Pro:
+Cheap for what you get- Again, to get these specs at this price point is quite impressive.
+Good floor on Freesync framerate- This monitor will allow for Freesync to stay enabled as low as 35 FPS, which is better than some more expensive displays that I have seen.
+ 1ms response time- The monitor feels nice and snappy.
+Decent menu-The monitor menu is reasonably easy to use and has a wide range of settings, not much else to say.
+VESA Mount- The monitor has the mount similar to most gaming monitors at this price point, allows for a wide range of adjustments.
+Design- This display has a more reserved look than some other "gaming"-branded displays, although you can't escape the large "FREESYNC 144HZ" branding at the top left.
+USB Hub - Monitor has a USB hub built in to the right side of the display, can't comment too much as I have a larger one my desk I use instead.

Cons:
-Color - As with all other gaming monitors in this price point, the color quality is simply atrocious. The colors look gray and washed out. This is especially apparent when you directly compare it to any IPS display. Adjusting the settings to presets created by other users online helps, but only so much.

Overall, I would strongly recommend this display to anyone looking to improve their gaming experience on a budget. Having used this, I doubt I could go back to not using a high refresh rate Freesync display.
