Pros: The monitor came very tightly wrapped in a layer of bubble wrap. No damage to any of the components inside the box.
Very little setup required–just screw two bolts into each of the two legs.
No dead or stuck pixels, which is expected with this product.
Cons: No ability to adjust the monitor angle due to the legs being no more than two static stands.
Instruction booklet in Korean only (though the monitor's on-screen menu is in English).
Other Thoughts: I just got this monitor the day I'm writing this review, so I've only played around with the monitor for a few hours. So far, looking to be a great monitor for the price. If you have the money and desk space, it looks to be a good buy.
I'm currently using a 2.5 year old MSI Radeon R9 270X as my graphics card, which does not have HDMI 2.0 support (so at 2160p, I'm locked at 30 fps). I'm getting some screen tearing when watching videos with fast motion that I hope will go away once I upgrade to a new card with HDMI 2.0 in a few months. I plan to update this review at that time.
Pros: Excellent performance at $165.
Cons: The card unfortunately died after about a month.
Other Thoughts: I bought this card as an upgrade for my old Radeon HD 5770 which I'd purchased from Newegg 4 years ago for about the same price. The 7850 is an excellent performer at 1080p, but the card I got crashed the system while playing Skyrim twice, and then the computer stopped posting. Switched out the card with the old 5770, and it posted fine.
This is a great card, I think I just got a bad one. Newegg was very easy to deal with & allowed an RMA for a full refund (card will be off the market soon.)
