looks good but 2/17/2020 2:51:47 PM

Pros: Great picture very crisp and the color settings are great!

Cons: It developed a blue streaking line down the panel after less than an hour of use. It looks to be a hardware defect as I have tried this with other devices and cables.

Overall Review: good product except for the hardware defect

Pros: - Picture Quality
- HDMI and DisplayPort cable provided. Both working for 144hz
- Technology features
- HDR10 - Not tested yet.
- Gsync
- Almost no bleeding for an IPS
- 1ms 144hz IPS panel. THANKS

Nice monitor but bad quality control - line of dead pixels 1/9/2020 2:13:05 AM

Pros: Good viewing angles.
Even backlighting.

Cons: Came with a blob of dead pixels.
Speakers are only suitable for last-resort.

Overall Review: If you bought this monitor, make sure you give it a thorough check for dead pixels. Mine came with a very visible 'line' of continuous dead pixels.

Relatively easy to set up 1/5/2020 8:52:00 AM

Pros: Supports GSync and give a much better display with it

Cons: The Display Port Cable supplied does not support NVIDA GSync (suspect it is not a Display Port 1.2 cable)
Purchase a seperate Display Port 1.2 cable and then GSync works fine

Overall Review: I would recommend the product, but until ASUS change the supplied cable, you should consider getting a 1.2 Display Port cable.

The HDMI cable woks ok but does not support NVIDA GSync
