Don't listen to the YouTubers who bash this
Pros: - Great Speed - Great Price
Overall Review: Youtubers keep saying that this is a bad drive since it only has a 5 year life guarantee, but what they don't know is that the 5 year mark is only true is you read and write 100GB/day every day. To put that in perspective that 178 terabytes within 5 year...
All around great buy
Pros: Overall the features that are advertised are on point, pretty much exactly what I was expecting. - IPS panel -> Absolutely necessary for any photo/video editing. - Free-sync enabled -> Great feature for gaming. - 4k -> First 4k monitor and it did not disappoint. - Great colours -> Thanks to the IPS panel - Vesa Mount - Fast shipping - Good design
Cons: - 5ms response time -> This is one of the trade off with IPS panels vs. TN panels. IPS are caped at either 4-5ms, but the free-sync makes up for some of that.
Overall Review: - If you are a hardcore gamer who doesnt edit photos/videos or work with colours I'd honestly recomend going with a TN panel 1ms response time, with Free-sync since you cont really care about colours and contrast. -But if you are someone who does a bit of everything: casual gamer, photo/video work, watches movies, and does other general things, I'd definitely recommend this monitor.
