Overall Review: I bought this monitor since it's the hottest new 1440p 27" monitor on the market. I wanted a modern monitor that made full use of DisplayPort 1.4, so the older ASUS models were out. I had heard some worries about QC issues with Gigabyte, but so far this monitor has worked pretty much perfectly. The only things I've noticed are some backlight bleed when the screen is totally black (I literally never notice this unless I'm turning off my computer), and some intermittent flickering when trying to connect via USB-C with my Mac (but Macs have problems with everything). For PC use, I still think this is pretty much your best option if you're looking for a 27" 1440p on the highr-end. There's always going to be a chance of monitor lottery, but so far I have had 0 regrets biting the bullet with this one.

Bad Delivery, Awesome Product!

Pros: Well-made metal body with great ventilation, this case has everything going for it. - Great cable management - Awesome amount of space - Looks spiffy

Cons: Having not owned this for very long, the only thing I don't like (which I already knew about) was that you don't get a good view of the inside of the case because there's no window.

Overall Review: Fedex delivered this product to my door (with free shipping) in only 3 days, but I noticed a large gash in the box it was shipped in. Upon taking the case out of the box, I saw a fairly noticeable dent on one side of the case. Luckily, after calling Newegg's customer support, they gave me the option to choose between a $25 compensation or a replacement case. They were very quick and helpful, and I was happy to work with them throughout this process. (I finally decided to take the $25 because all of my other parts had already arrived and it was really just cosmetic in the end)
