Game with a flicker 1/28/2020 3:14:42 AM

Pros: Great picture and certainly looks better than 1080p. Quick response time.

Cons: Backlights has been flickering off and Sometimes for 10+ seconds at a time which has been an issue while gaming. Games like Overwatch

Overall Review: I would honestly consider picking a different monitor, one that you won’t need to send in after you already spent good money on.

Fan-freakin'-tastic! 1/5/2020 4:52:19 PM

Pros: I've owned the MG28UQ monitor since Aug 2016. Used this monitor with a GTX 1070 and now with an RTX 2070 graphics card. I've played games that launched from 2010 to 2019 and this monitor rocks! Now that Nvidia series 10 & series 20 cards utilizes adaptive sync (Freesync) I get silky smooth gaming at 60Hz . I enable vertical sync on all games or cap frame rates at 60 and this monitor is awesome. My favorite monitor of all time.

Cons: Nothing negative about the MG28UQ (first available in March 2016)

Overall Review: Highly recommend this monitor!!

Eh, I don't like the color. Faces look a bit pasty. 1/3/2020 3:34:14 PM

Pros: Nice stand, cool rotating display (Not sure what I'd ever use it for though). Probably doesn't flicker, but I don't do 3d games.

Cons: Don't use the HDMI connection, the picture is TERRIBLE. Colors are a bit flat. I know I could probably adjust them to be more vivid, but I just wanted it to work nicely out of the box.

Overall Review: I just wanted a simple monitor that has really nice color, good contrast. This just isn't the one.

Fine monitor, poor viewing angle 12/16/2019 5:15:15 PM

Pros: Colors are fine, response time is nice and snappy
Stand has adjustable height and rotation.
Does what I need for the price

Cons: Viewing angles are terrible! Without the adjustable stand, I never would have found a position where I could sit comfortably without the image darkening. Slouch just a bit and the top inch or two of the display darkens. Forget trying to see the screen if you're standing up, as the colors totally invert unless you're over five feet away from your desk.

Overall Review: Compared to my 14-year old HD monitor, this didn't feel like much of an upgrade.

Gorgeous 12/13/2019 10:49:06 AM

Pros: Plug'n'play with R9 Fury X: just plug it in and it comes up at 4K
No dead pixels
Easy height and tilt adjustment
DP + 3 HDMI inputs
Includes DP, HDMI, and USB3 cables

Cons: Shipped without external box or wrapping, arrived before predicted (see below)
No legacy VGA or DVI ports

Overall Review: This is my first 4K monitor so I don't have anything to compare with other than my previous 23" 1K monitor. I immediately noticed a lot more detail in my wallpaper than was there before. Not much gaming on it yet, but so far the R9 Fury X has been up to the task with good frame rates.

My biggest complaint is about the shipping. Not the usual complaints about it arriving late or damaged: in my case, it appeared on the porch two days before the expected delivery date in its full-color glossy box announcing to the world and porch pirates what was inside. I understand inflating the delivery date to make it feel like it got there fast, but in this case it's a good thing I happened to be home. I also understand saving the cost and environmental impact of not enclosing it in an outer box (the Styrofoam padding inside seems adequate to protect the monitor during shipping). If you order one of these, either ship it to a secure location or be prepared to watch like a hawk to make sure it doesn't get stolen. No eggs off as this isn't a problem with the product itself.

Great and for the price 12/11/2019 9:59:52 AM

Pros: Nice clear images, my wife has had same model for 3 years for photo editing and loves

Cons: Occasionally get multiple horizontal lines when first logging in, cured with reboot. May be because I run dual monitors with different resolutions?

Overall Review: Would like to buy a second one
