    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The quality of the screen is excellent and the monitor is very good for both work and playing games

    I just bought a new GTX 3070 to match with this 1440p monitor and the detail is so apparent in games and basic youtube videos. I'm so happy I upgraded from my 1080p monitor night and day difference in clarity and build quality!

    Best monitor I never owned

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This has everything you would want on a monitor and the one thing I wish they could of added was an eye care feature and that's really all but it would of been nice for night time use. This monitor looks and performs amazing for the money and it's already comes calibrated. I highly recommend leaving it at defaults with HDR enabled

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this in January of 2022. I have not had a single problem with it. The colors are great and the panel is responsive/fast. The USB hub on the back is a great feature. Overall great monitor and would highly recommend it for anyone who wants a fast gaming monitor and great picture quality.

    Great monitor for the price

    Everything worked great out of the box. I use sRGB option for most of my computer usage and it has been great.

    Nice Monitor, but pricey

    Good monitor, the picture and refresh are great. Sits around 100-120hz most of the time. Color and brightness are really easy to adjust. Price is a little high, but worth it imo.

    Better than I expected.

    Didn't expect much better than my Dell S2716DG because it's still a great monitor, but man. The colors are gorgeous. It's been a couple weeks and I'm still awed at how much better a calibrated (I used a custom RTINGS color profile) IPS is than even a good TN panel. The 165Hz is lovely too. I've played mostly Warhammer 3 Total War on it but it's doing just fine - I'll have to try some fps games but I have no doubt it's going to perform well given it's fast gtg response time. I got it for a great price, totally worth it. Get it if you're on the fence about upgrading from a TN panel to a gaming-grade IPS.

    Solid gaming/productivity monitor

    By Kiowa

    Bought this to replace a old flickering productivity monitor and it very quickly became my main monitor for productivity and gaming. The image is fantastic and the refresh rates are excellent. The general fit and finish of the monitor is also very appealing, even if the bezel is so small it makes finding a place for your webcam across the top a bit difficult. Games look fantastic on the screen and the refresh rates have everything running wonderfully smooth. The only negatives I had are a bit of noticeable backlight bleed in the upper right and lower left corners. It's not terrible, but noticeable enough on dark images to be worth mentioning.
