Pros: - Defaults to 2133 mhz. Once set to the preferred XMP in bios, it runs at 3000 no problem on my Ryzen 5 2600X build
-One of, if not the cheapest 8GB DDR4-3000 RAM
Cons: -It doesn't need a heatsink (almost no RAM does), but the sticker does give it a little bit of a cheap vibe
Overall Review: I only managed to pick up a single stick currently since I didn't have enough money for two right off the bat. I've heard so many boogie man stories regarding single channel ram and how you should only use dual channel. But 2x 8GB > 4x 4GB for hitting rated speeds/best performance. So I decided to go with two of these sticks, one now, one in a month when I have more $.
I've been surprised that single channel works just fine for me and I haven't experienced very many issues in not having dual channel. I've noticed minor stuttering with many things open/going on at once, but it's only minor. So don't be too afraid if you can only afford one for now and another at a later date.
Really thin, sleek design
Practically no bezels
Great response time and input lag for gaming
Cons: The stand is quite limited, but that should be an obvious going into it
Some IPS glow in the bottom right corner, but almost any IPS monitor is going to have some
Overall Review: Came with an HDMI cord
My cons are pretty minor and things you would find in most IPS monitors or low budget options
Recommended Trace Free setting is 20-40 on this panel
I would definitely recommend this to anyone on a budget looking to watch shows/movies, browse the web, or game.
