My First 144Hz monitor. Some minor gripes, but overall impressed.

Viotek GN32DB 32" curved gaming monitor, 2560x1440 2K WQHD, 144Hz, AMD FreeSync, 4ms, VESA mount, DVI, HDMI, DP
Viotek GN32DB 32" curved gaming monitor, 2560x1440 2K WQHD, 144Hz, AMD FreeSync, 4ms, VESA mount, DVI, HDMI, DP

Pros: - Nice size (32"). Curved screen took some getting used to, but I have grown to really like it. - Smooth gaming and overall operation. Thought my timing was really off (mainly due to arthritis), but have found the demise of my gaming skills was not entirely due to aging ;) I was actually amazed at the difference (going from 60hz/8ms or worse to 144Hz/4ms) - Sturdy and Strong stand - Overall look is nice - Solid packaging

Cons: - Getting the monitor to work in 144Hz takes some knowledge, much of which is not in the information that comes with the monitor - While the monitor looks nice from afar, on closer inspection much of the construction is pretty cheap. Stuff like the red trim just being some shiny tape that was coming off on one side. The buttons are very basic (i.e. cheap) and took some getting used to. Hard to gripe too much about this at the price ($329), but should be mentioned. - Out of the box, the color, contrast, brightness etc. had to be adjusted. Reds have an orange hue and the monitor just looks dull. While it won't match IPS or 4k TV for color boldness, with some adjustment, the monitor can look really nice. - LEDs don't add much to the overall look so I just turned them off - Stand only tilts forward and back. No swivel action in any other direction

Overall Review: Was a bit cautious when getting this monitor as I had no experience with Viotek before this. After doing some reasearch, having a couple of Black Friday sale misadventures that resulted in no monitor, I came back to this Viotek monitor and am very pleased with it. I would recommend this monitor with one condition being that the buyer was willing to do some research outside of what is given to get the monitor to perform well. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase, especially at the price I paid ($329) Edit 1/17/19: On 1/15/19 Nvidia released drivers that enable GeForce 10 Series and higher graphic cards to be used with adaptive-sync monitor formats other than G-Sync. While I have not been able to do extensive testing ( and I only had the monitor a month before this was released) I cannot come back with any more information than: - I installed the driver for my GeForce 1070ti (G-Sync and G-Sync compatibility is enabled by default) - Turned the Free-Sync in the "Picture Quality Setting" of the monitor menu - Had a very smooth gaming experience (Playing MAD MAX at 2k max settings) So, with my small experience, this driver enabled adaptive has worked every well with this Monitor (GN32DB)

Good fan, just not the exact right one

In an older computer I needed to replace the fans, which I did with a Aigo darkflash 3-pack fan kit with controller. I wanted another fan for exhaust that would hook up with the controller. This fan was not it. Looks cool as the exhaust fan in the back though and hooked up nicely to the fan header on my MB, so I just kept it. Works as described and is a nice fan in its own right. I just wish I could find a single fan that would hook up to the controller, which is a little confusing with all the options. Good overall build quality.
