Pros: Colors 144Hz out the box Price FreeSync Best interested speakers I've heard yet

Cons: Not working after a week of use

Overall Review: When I got this monitor,12/07/21, it sat for about a week or so while I waited for a new desk to come. When I finally had it set up or was great. This was my first monitor with a refresh above 60 and I could immediately tell the difference. Even moving windows around the desktop was so smooth it seemed fake. Like in movies when they plan over to a CG actor (Duplicity). I now understood what reviewers we're saying about seeing trialing motion blur colors etc. This monitor was an eye opener(pun intended) for me and it worked great straight out of the box. Until it didn't. When I turned on my PC this morning, 12/20/21, nothing happened. So I chuckled the part on the PC a couple of times and still nothing. I put in my an older graphics card and nothing. So I plugged in one of my previous monitors and wouldn't you know it the PC was booting just fine the whole time. Then I connected the M34WQ booted the PC and noticed that the monitor wasn't even showing the Gigabyte splash screen. Sad thing is can't find anything about this online all relevant search results come up as the G34WCQ. I don't know how common this issue is but that's what's happening to me. UPDATE: I attached one of my old monitors and used it to install the Gigabyte OSD sidekick and firmware update that I had previously downloaded and forgot to install. That appears to have fixed the issue. Updated to 4 stars.
