Most Favorable Review

Great monitor for the price

VIOTEK GNV29CB Ultrawide Curved 29" Gaming Monitor 2560 x 1080 p (2K), 120 Hz, UWFHD 21:9 w/ Immersive 1200R VA Panel FreeSync
VIOTEK GNV29CB Ultrawide Curved 29" Gaming Monitor 2560 x 1080 p (2K), 120 Hz, UWFHD 21:9 w/ Immersive 1200R VA Panel FreeSync

Pros: 120 hz refresh rate, with freesync support. I had no issues with freesync + my RTX 2060. The stand was metal, but only had tilt adjustment. The pixel response time are pretty average for a va, with noteable backlight bleed in my unit, which I see as an absolute win for the price. Gaming was great on this thing, but I decided to rma it and replace it with a larger panel (which is purely personal preference, and not at all reflective of the monitor)

Cons: The panel had washed-out colors, and the image was slightly blurry. The integrated sharpness setting resulted in either a blurry image, or terrible fringing. This was to be expected for the price, and these results may vary from panel to panel.

Overall Review: If you want to game at 21:9 with a >100 hz refresh rate, I'd highly recommend this panel for the price.

Great while it worked

G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C16D-16GTZR

Pros: It looks nice, cheap (bough on sale)

Cons: Two weeks after I bought this kit XMP decided to stop working, and even manually inputing the correct timings doesn't work. I have to run this kit at CL22 for it to work, which is awful for my 3600. I have yet to RMA, as I am too busy with college, and this PC is what I primarily use for rendering and cad work. Very dissapointed.
