These type of games require very fast and precise movements, which an ultra-high refresh rate and fast response time monitor will put you ahead of your competition.


LESS BLUE LIGHT

Awesome 5/28/2020 11:49:15 PM

Pros: I bought this and with my Nvidia 2060 super card it’s absolutely stunning. I would recommend.

Cons: I gave them 4 stars only because after I bought it I saw where they said “just because a pixel or two is out we won’t cover under warranty “ or something very similar to that, I bought the extended warranty and now I see problems ahead if I need it fixed.

Overall Review: Monitor is awesome.

My screen resolution looks stretched and I couldn’t configure the display settings to 144hz, its maxing out at 120hz. 5/14/2020 5:09:10 AM

Overall Review: The screen resolution at 1920×1080 just doesn’t look perfect. It looks stretched like on the low quality side. It looks like you connected your laptop to a 50” tv with hdmi.. I am not sure if there is a fix but I’ve tried a lot of different methods found on forums and youtube but nothing seem to work. I hope the seller have a solution for this.

Garbage Product 5/13/2020 12:04:39 AM

Pros: None- it’s sat in a closet mostly. Looks nice turned off from the back.

Cons: Resolution. Freesync. Lackluster menu options. Black color wash.

Overall Review: I just pulled this monitor from storage and almost forgot I had it altogether. I replaced the MSI G27C2 within a month of purchase due to the lackluster color spectrum and disappointing 1080p.

Overall this was just a bad buy. Looking at the price I cannot say this product lived up to the hype at all. The colors and resolution were dull and faded and have no menu options to adjust it once in game mode.

Maybe I should’ve sent it in for warranty but I don’t think anything was especially wrong with my monitor- just wildly overpriced mediocre gear. Probably won’t buy anything MSI again, which is a shame because when they entered the market a decade ago it was absolutely a bang for the buck company.

works great! 5/6/2020 9:18:38 PM

Pros: Great resolution
Freesync
the curve

Cons: May occasionally flicker during gameplay

Overall Review: I really enjoy the level of use this monitor has. Games like Super Hexagon, which relies on sufficient refresh rate, can now be played full screen with no screen tearing with this screen. I plan on getting some screen mounts later on.
Overall I really enjoy it, though my girlfriend has definitely been enjoying it more!

Great inexpensive monitor!! 5/1/2020 8:37:59 AM

Pros: - The curve is actually nice.
- High refresh rate (120HZ actual; 144HZ boost)
- Display port
- Accurate colors out of the box.

Cons: - Contrast is lacking
- Some back-lighting 'blobbing' is obvious, but only on a black screen.
- Hard to navigate menu and control buttons.

Overall Review: I purchased this monitor to plug into my laptop running a Nvidia 1660ti MAX-Q. Having a higher refresh rate of 120HZ is definitely a noticeable improvement compared to the 60HZ screen on my laptop. In fact, this monitor beats my Dell G5 laptop screen in every metric possible.

The only downside is that the contrast in this screen is a little lacking, but that is really comparing it to IPS or higher priced panels. I so want to give this monitor five stars. I wish I could give it four and a half stars if Newegg would let me, but four stars it is as this monitor is almost perfect for this price point.
