Awesome screen 6/13/2020 10:57:44 AM

Pros: Large desktop space
The curve is very nice to work with. It has to be experienced to see just how different it feels to a flat-screen.
Crisp, bright.

Cons: I noticed some blurring on Netflix when the camera pans slowly.
Text size can be small on mac. Windows allows you to resize the text that appears on the title bars of windows it displays. Osx for mac does not so you get good text size everywhere except on the headers of windows. For instance, the tabs in chrome can be small to read.

Overall Review: I switched from a 1080p screen as my main desktop to this. This is smaller, but wow it looks good. Highly recommended. Newegg really came through with fast, cheap, and safe shipping too. No dead pixels.

Good Monitor 5/31/2020 7:29:52 PM

Pros: - Good picture
- Good colors
- Good Brightness
- Has a waranty

Cons: - There is noticable ghosting but only with dark blacks/greys. Ghosting wouldnt be nearly as bad if there wasn't a slight purple trailing to it.
- No information on how fast the pixles can change from black to white.

Overall Review: There is not a whole lot of information on this monitor online. I decided to take the gamble knowing that it could easily be one of those VA panels with horrible ghosting. While it is noticeable with purple trailing it really is not the worst as far as VA monitors go. And given that IPS also can have ghosting it is a good deal for the brightness, 2k and 165Hz. I found that the ghosting didnt really affect my play in shooters such as Battlefield. I would recomend this monitor to anyone but the people that cannot stand any ghosting at all. I would also say to look at the Dell S2719DGF because the reviews say it has a really good color range for a TN panle and since its TN it will not really have any ghosting issues.
Disclaimer- So far I have only used this monitor for Xbox one games and it is totally possible that once i hook it up to my pc I will be able to fiddle with the settings and tame the ghosting and purple trailing some what. If I can I will change to a 5 star review. Right now it is very close to a 5 anyways.

Great monitor for its price point 5/29/2020 12:29:19 PM

Pros: - Great colors (gets pretty close to IPS with some tweaking) even for a VA panel.
- 165 Hz works right out of the box using DP.
- G-Sync works flawlessly.
- Minimal bezels.
- Super quick setup.

Cons: - HDR setting sucks. Better off having it turned off.

Overall Review: I've been looking for monitors for well over a month and couldn't find a decent monitor that's relatively inexpensive. This monitor didn't have many review so I bit the bullet and decided to check it out; adding my review here in hopes that it helps other people purchasing decision. Overall, great monitor for the price that it's at. Sad that it went on sale for cheaper when I bought it, but that's what I get for being impatient lol.
Colors are great. 1440p looks crisp and it was set to 1440p 165hz right out the box with DP (cable included in box). OSD is easy to navigate. Blacks are deep blacks.

A few things to note:
- G-Sync was enabled out the box. Dare I say it's G-Sync compatible even though the product description doesn't say it.
-HDR setting is terrible, it makes the quality more grainy/noisy and puts a orange hue on the display, it looks leagues better without it.
-One problem I had a couple times but couldn't replicate after using for a couple hours was that when my monitor and compter went to sleep and I would wake it up with a mouse wiggle, the monitor would wake up and I would see my desktop then it would go to a black screen for a couple seconds then back to my desktop. It only happened twice and doesn't happen anymore. I don't know if it's a driver issue or monitor so I didn't dock off an egg.
-No dead pixels (!!!!!!!!).
-Super Sharpness in OSD is hit or miss. Works great in some instances but looks ugly and fuzzy in other instances. I keep it off.
-Screen is pretty bright, definitely not like you're looking at the sun but just bright enough imo. Anti-glare screen works wonders.
-There's a setting that I think is called Warm Color Temp? Turn it off, looks a lot better. I believe I also turned Black Boost to 0.
-As for ghosting, yes there is some ghosting. It's noticable when you test it out on those ghosting websites. When playing games or any normal everyday talk, it's unnoticeable.

I will update this review if I find any more Pros or Cons about the monitor, but so far I'm loving it. Grab it while it's cheap and in stock.

Awesome Budget Friendly Gaming Monitor 5/14/2020 10:22:37 AM

Pros: I picked up this monitor this week as a birthday present to myself despite it having no reviews and I am not disappointed thus far.

-After running windows calibrate this monitor revealed accurate, bright, and detailed colors.

- I have noticed no ghosting thus far despite the 4ms response time.

-The curved screen is very immersive and really helps to sink you into the game.

-Extreme Overdrive option allows for faster pixel response. I personally see no difference, but I'm not as sharp a gamer as a lot of you guys out there.

Cons: -I missed the new egg promo sale price by one day. Makes me a little bummed out and sad.

-Slight light bleed during black screen transitions, but this is common for curved screens and for the price of this monitor, an easy compromise to make.

Overall Review: It hasn't been long enough for me to put this monitor through its paces, but I would purchase this again. I recommend it for weekend gamers and movie watchers looking for that next step up in resolution and refresh rate without breaking the bank. There is plenty of screen size in this sleek and modern package.
