Best 1440p gaming monitor 12/2/2019 5:32:15 PM

Pros: Best 1440p monitor for gaming, great panel, awesome adjustability, awesome stats. Owned this monitor for years and it's still on top! Check out the model number on the TFT Central website & PC Gamer. Their test results and review say it all.

Cons: More explanation should be provided about the 165MHz "overclock". Is it truly overclocking? Is it OK to leave it "over clocked", etc.
Otherwise no cons.

White is more of a yellow shade. 12/2/2019 7:19:14 AM

Pros: -165Hz Refresh Rate
-'More color gamut coverage'
-RGB is always a plus

Cons: -White balance is off. I'm getting more of a yellowish tint.
-VESA mount location is different from previous similar models.
-No built in GAMMA controls.

Overall Review: I noticed that tabs with a white background would noticeably change shade once I dragged them on an off of this monitor to my other monitors. Mine has a slight yellow tint to it and adjusting the balances haven't helped. All I can find that helps is to keep the brightness around 80% and the contrast at 50% with color settings at 'normal' as any other setting makes it biased towards one color. The monitor's gamma also seems to be off, as I can't get my calibration software to "zero" out gamma using the test images while adjusting levels. Refresh rate is nice for gaming. Please note that back RGB lighting will not turn off when the computer turns off and that this monitor's VESA mount location is about an inch lower than previous models, so if you're using a non-height adjustable VESA mount, they will be offset.

Quality control is absolute garbage 11/29/2019 9:08:46 PM

Pros: None. Too many cons to even consider them.

Cons: Returned the monitor 3 times, each time over 1/3 of the screen backlit bled from the same areas.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Valued Customer,

It is unfortunate that this is your third monitor that is suffering from back light bleed. Have you tried calibrating your monitor's brightness settings to see if that helps with the back light bleed? Brightness set between the ranges of 30-50, and blue light features (found in the OSD menu) to level 4. Let me know if this helps. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact me at cl-justin@asus.com, I'm here to assist our customers with our products and dedicated in bringing a resolution to all issues that they may come across. Your case for reference is #N191203153

Thanks for choosing ASUS

Regards,
Justin

Designed to fail? 11/24/2019 2:12:32 AM

Pros: + Beautiful display
+ Sexy design
+ Excellent color reproduction
+ Great menu GUI
+ Large panel
+ Very sturdy stand

Cons: - Large footprint
- Bezel is large (approximately 75 mm) around the left, right, and top edges of the panel
- Buttons are on the back of the monitor
- Panel began to fail DAYS after warranty period ended

Overall Review: I purchased this monitor on 10/4/2016 and began to have panel issues on 10/10/2019.

The panel in my monitor began to fail DAYS after the 36 month warranty period passed. After powering on the monitor flashing (at approximately 20 Hz) white streaks inundate the screen along the bottom, top, and right sides of right-most 1/3 of the panel. The streaks mostly dissipate after the panel has been on for about 10 minutes, so there is likely a thermal component to the issue. If it were just this one item, then I would have considered this failure consequential; however, other ASUS products I've in the past 4 years also failed right after their warranty period passed. So, while I cannot say with any certainty that the product was designed to fail shortly after the warranty period passed, it is awfully suspicious...

For the past 15 years I have been an avid fan of ASUS; looks like I can't afford to be one any more.

The best monitor, all i can say 11/14/2019 1:46:23 AM

Pros: As expected 240hz baby

Cons: the only issue here is that I received the monitor only on it's manufacturer box which it should've been inside another box similar to when buying from another site

Overall Review: I recommend the product as to me the best 240hz monitor

Exceptional Monitor! 11/10/2019 4:28:06 AM

Pros: 1440p
G-Sync
Great IPS panel
Great monitor controls/OSD
Design is awesome
Not an overly aggressive curve.

Cons: Took a few days to get used to it. Motion sickness! Did go away.
Terrible speakers-low volume
Big stand/Takes up a lot of desk space
Heavy
Have to do some color and contrast adjustments out of the box

Overall Review: This monitor was well worth the money. I jumped up from a 34" 2560X1080 panel to this and the quality is night and day. Beautiful picture, great gaming experience. Highly recommend if you are on the fence about upgrading from 1080p to 1440p it is totally worth it. Changed my gaming experience for the better all around with the higher resolution and the G-Sync. Make sure you have the hardware to push it. 1440p Ultrawide taxes the GPU more due to the extra screen real estate meaning more pixels to fill. Running a RTX 2080 and it drives this thing just fine!

Great Monitor / Waiting for next iteration/gen though 11/7/2019 7:11:18 AM

Pros: - Simple design, with all the frills.
- It's been 2yrs since its release date, and still one of the best gaming monitors on the market
- Color tone may be a little off when you get it, so just play with it until your hearts content
- It's moved with me across town multiple times, never any issues
- 1440p at 165hz with 1ms response = AWESOME
- They have a new gen. (TUF) with 155hz at .4ms response... may just try that out for gits an shiggles

Cons: - Design of the inputs on the back panel is a little strange since it's at an angle, can make it difficult to reach them when you need to hookup or unhook
- Menu buttons could be a little more pronounced for ease of use, I'd rather have them on the front of the display so I can change settings quickly on the fly.
- Wish they used an arrow button for the menus instead of consecutive clicks... gets confusing and frustrating at times.

Overall Review: Great monitor with a lot of gaming power, I've been looking around for a new monitor but realize that I still have one of the best (if not THE BEST) in my opinion. I am tempted to try their new TUF series but I enjoy this ROG so much that I don't see much need to.

Buy it... you'll enjoy the hell out of it like I have!
