Pros: Its 1440p!
This ISP Monitor Gives great color representation, and deep, deep, blacks, right out of the box.
The width of this panel is about as wide as it ever needs to be, in my opinion. It is wide enough to use your peripheral vision , and easy enough to simply move your eyes around to see without moving your head.
The OSD menu Joystick is an absolute pleasure to use! So simple and easy use it will be hard to ever use an OSD menu without one in the future.
The built in FPS counter is a great tool to monitor your system 's FPS performance in games and to ensure G-Sync is operating correctly.
I find the USB 3.0 pass-through is great. and includes the necessary USB 3.0 cable.
Mine OC's to the full 100Hz with no problems.
No gloss black anything.
No dead pixels.
No motion blur and no ghosting.
No IPS Glow, No backlight bleed.
Display Port connectivity. Includes 1 DP cable.
VESA 100x100 compatible mount.
3 year warranty.
The curve of the monitor isn't very noticeable after a while, you just get used to it.
Price is a pro!...
As long as this panel remains pricey, it remains out of reach of the average gamer, so I can pawn them easier and for longer! :)
Cons: Built in FPS counter only works with G-Sync.
The very large Included stand is a little tipsy to the front, it seems like just a little push from the rear could make this monitor fall right onto the keyboard.
When using a VESA compatible mount the electrical connectors for the red ROG light in the stand stick out far enough to touch the VESA mount itself, threatening to short out the system. I used black electrical tape to cover the terminals so there is no chance these will short out. Not sure why this wasn't designed better in the first place. The end user shouldn't have to watch out or worry about such things.
The stand is very bulky and seems to want to tip toward the user with very little effort. I could see the feet of the stand making it easy to scratch nice surfaces.
There is a slight bending effect of the screen on either side of the monitor, almost looks like a Samsung Galaxy Edge where the image rolls towards the back of the monitor, you don't notice it all the time and is not bothering in any way.
The black border between the bezel and display area of the screen is thicker than the advertised picture's above, including the grey bezel the black border is 1/2", its a little larger than the height of the G-Sync sticker on the front of the monitor. In my opinion that's false advertising.
I can only afford one.
Other Thoughts: The extra peripheral vision from the 21:9 aspect ratio is perfect for FPS/Racing/Flight games and gives an absolute advantage in game up to 100Hz, over any 16:9 monitor even at a so called 4k resolution of 3840x2160. Its eye candy Vs Usable space and This monitor strikes a good balance between the both.
I feel sorry for everyone who bought a predator x34 with all those quality control issues and calibration needs... you should have waited!
This review is from: Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum RGB Tunable Gaming Mouse
Pros: Good balance of buttons,
Not over the top,
Custom weight, custom buttons with Logitech software,
Feels like a quality build,
Sturdy scroll wheel, feels like solid metal (no rubber to stretch out, plastic to break)
Great for FPS, regular P.C. usage and acceptable for MMO
Cons: When I first received my mouse the scroll wheel had absolutely no resistance, I spun the wheel and it continued to free spin for over 12 seconds... yes I counted!
After a day of using the mouse something must have freed up and the wheel now clicks as it should. you would think that the manufacturer QC would have picked up on this, however if it was due to jostling around during shipping, it worry's me that there are loose parts inside (no rattling noise though) as the packaging was sound and intact
Other Thoughts: Reading reviews before I purchased this mouse, I was looking for a Large "palm grip" mouse since the "claw grip" style mice tend to cramp my hands considerably with prolonged usage. Everyone's reviews said this was a very large mouse.... it is not.
It is a large mouse for some but Logitech has larger. This mouse is only slightly larger than a Steel-series Sensi Raw, which is only 3 mm longer than my 1990's two button Dell mouse.
I use all the weights in the mouse and like the added feature. makes it feel beefier and i tend to not overshoot what I am trying to click as often.
I would certainly recomend this mouse to anyone looking, It's a good mouse, I just hope for longevity.
Pros: A cheaper "refurbished" option for a gaming monitor, 144hz, VESA mount, Blue light filter, all the ports you could use.
Cons: Color representation is pretty good but Blacks are a charcoal grey at best, very small amount of backlight bleed along entire monitor on all 3 I bought for my surround setup.
These monitors are not G-Sync compatible.
-1 Egg for the following:
1 monitor came with an HDMI cable and 2 came with an DVI SINGLE LINK cable.... All 60 Hz cables with a 144Hz Monitor?....!
1 monitor came with no power cord.... really?... no power-cord.... and an HDMI to DVI single link cable....
Sounds like the company who refurbishes these (according to Newegg its not ASUS) is keeping the good hardware for themselves as these monitors were originally shipped with DVI Dual Link 144Hz Cables.
Other Thoughts: -1 egg..... should be -2
When I called newegg about the missing power cord they gave me two options, #1 buy a power-cord and they will reimburse me the amount up to 15$ or... #2 send the monitor back and they will send me a replacement monitor.
So I looked for a compatible powercable and could not find one locally in my area that was the same length connection nor with the right color for under $60 (they will only reimburse me up to $15), I really didn't want to send the monitor back.
Upset that now I have to pay the added price of 3 cables that support 144Hz I called them back and told them I would like a replacement sent like offered in my previous call, I asked about and was told that newegg does not have spare cables they could send, so an RMA was setup for a replacement.
After 7 days of shipping and a deliberate wait of the full 5 days before they confirmed they received the monitor (this delay was to help ensure that my 30 day warranty with newegg will have expired , the RMA was rejected and they just crammed some generic lose fitting power-cord into the box and shipped it back to me, After I was specifically told that newegg would not be able to supply a power-cord?!
Then another 7 days shipping back to me. With a two day delay in a town close to me. A quick call to UPS and they told me that Newegg requested that the package be delivered specifically on a certain day so therefore they had to delay it or it would be sent early by one day. So including weekends I received the monitor back the day after the newegg 30 day warranty has expired and haven't used the monitor for 30 min.... don't forget the original 3 day delay when I bought the monitor for processing and the 7 days (including weekends) shipping to get to my address, they shipped it from one warehouse to another then shipped it to me from there. Why not simply from the original warehouse directly to me?!??
The way newegg resolved this issue with me and all the delay tactics they used clearly shows to me newegg knows there are issues with these refurbished monitors and will drop them on you without hesitation, Customer service will tell you what you want to hear just to end the call then someone else will change the agreement without your consent.
Do not waste your money on this refurbished monitor.
I recommend for another $80 you can buy a brand new version of this monitor with the right cables and a real 3 year Warranty through ASUS.
