ASUS ROG PG278Q Black 27" Gaming Monitor 2560X1440, 144Hz 1ms(GTG), WQHD G-SYNC 3D Monitor, Gaming Hotkeys, 6mm Slim Bezel 350 cd/m2
Pros: - Discounted due to being refurbished. - 1440p, 144hz. - Sturdy construction. Easy to raise and pivot in any way.
Cons: - It's not two for one? I have no clue what to write here. No cons.
Overall Review: This is the most beautiful monitor I've ever owned. I've owned 4 monitors so far and all 4 of them were refurbished ASUS monitors. I've never had any issues buying refurbished from ASUS and this one just continues that trend. This is my first 1440p and >60hz monitor, so my eyes are still glossed over when I use it. The picture quality is just unreal. I'm running an i7 4790K@4.3GHz and a GTX 1070 with factory overclock. So far I've been able to run Overwatch at 1440p with roughly 90-100 frames on Ultra and 130-144 frames at Medium settings. I'll update with benchmarks for the Witcher 3 and Arma 3 here in a few days.
Lived for about 3 years
Pros: Just had to buy a new cooler because the pump failed on my H50. Kept my stock i7 4790K at around 25C-35C idle and 50C-60C under load before the pump failed. After it failed my temps shot up to 100C so it's time to move up to a bigger reservoir.
Cons: This little guy did an amazing job while it worked. 5/5
Amazing Sound Quality When Paired With Dedicated Card But...
Pros: -Audio quality is supurb. I used these along with a Soundblaster card and I don't believe I could go back. -Very comfortable to wear. I've worn them 8+ hours with no discomfort.
Cons: -Microphone is a bit stiff. -1 egg. -Unfortunately the microphone also died within a year of use. -1 egg.
Overall Review: -The aux microphones that come with them are useful when I have a dead microphone but they have a hard time staying anywhere without falling.
