Dead Pixel within 10 days of usage 8/5/2020 10:24:10 AM

Pros: well design and looks durable

Cons: Dead pixel within 10 days of gaming, call customer service within 30 days of order and they did not provide a refund option only replacement, this is very bad service for my order 479434494, end up returning it for replacement and don't know what to expect.

Overall Review: Dont buy this monitor it will end up with dead pixels

This Is A Great Buy! 8/4/2020 1:45:17 PM

Pros: This Monitor Tilts, Swivels, Rotates, Pivots, and has Height adjustment. 144Hz at 1ms GTG Response Time. The Price was about the same as my 24" Asus Monitor I purchased in 2018, the MG24QR. It is Nvidia G-Sync Compatible! It is 1920×1080, which most people play at. I purchased an EVGA 2060 KO. This is a great pairing if you don't have a Higher-end Graphics Card, or don't care about 4K, or 1440p, just FPS. It is a TN panel, which people need to stop bashing because the technology is much improved. Very sharp and bright. You should always calibrate, but you will not be doing much more than personal preferences.

Cons: It doesn't have RGB.

Overall Review: This Monitor is a great value because it has most of the best features. Clean design. One of the best panels. User Interface is easy to use. ASUS makes great Monitors.

Amazing Monitor for Competitive Gaming, but Lacks Decent Speakers 8/3/2020 8:59:51 PM

Pros: Super high 144 hz refresh rate
No screen tearing with gtx 980
Perfect size for a desk without being too big

Cons: Speakers are cheap quality, most likely why monitor wasnt so expensive so it is still worth it, just have to wear headphones or use desk speakers which are quite affordable

Overall Review: Highest recommendations for competitive gaming!

Very Nice Monitor 8/3/2020 4:24:49 PM

Pros: Pleasing to the eyes
Setup is simple
Comes with all the different wires you can use to connect to your computer
Buttons for the menu are pretty easy to get a hang of

Cons: Speakers are very quiet

Overall Review: I've only had this monitor for 2 weeks now but I'm very happy with it. It starts off at a low brightness so you'll have to turn that up. The speakers are quiet but that doesn't make too much of a difference to me, plus I believe you can set up headphones or external speakers to it anyway. Overall, it's very nice!
