    Ordered this monitor because I decided my 32 just wasn't cutting it for me anymore. This seemed to be one of only a few options on the market that seemed to meet my needs. Great colors, contrast, 144Hz, and absolutely enormous. It took me 2 RMAs to receive a good model, but that's more indicative of shipping companies and however Gigabyte handles their products. For all intents and purposes, the item itself is fantastic. Beware that this is a VA panel, so if you're not looking at the screen dead on, the colors will look very washed out. This is an inherent aspect of the panel technology, and not a fault of the product, so I see no reason to consider this a con. 5/5 I love this thing.

    I want to like this monitor but...

    By frank

    so many silly things wrong with it. For starters I am using it with the preinstalled drivers because the software you need to install to run the update doesn't jive with Windows 11 yet it seems. Tweaking the image always seems like something is off- it has LOTS of options to fine tune but I just can't get it just right for me...maybe my LG OLED spoiled me. But the remote is very finicky. It's not the best UI- it's acceptable, but my real issue is that it just sometimes lags and crashes and simply doesn't work. Another issue is that if I turn the monitor off to go do something, I cannot simply turn it back on- I have to make sure it's off, disconnect the HDMI, reconnect and then it will recognize the input. Volume is another issue. I only had one occasion where it was adjustable. Otherwise at 1 it is super loud and it is the same volume no matter how high or low you select so if I want to listen to things at a modest volume, I have to use the windows audio settings. It seems like a mix of Windows and Aorus at fault. I'm hoping they will try to get on the ball to update their software to be compatible with Windows 11 and that this will all end, but otherwise it's kind of a regretful purchase. I kind of wish I had spent the few extra hundred on the ASUS model with HDMI 2.1, etc or if I had a larger desk, a 48 OLED.

    My other review was a little harsh after complaining about the circles at the top of my screen. Turns out the circles are in PlanetSide 2 on PS5 edition only. Colors on PC are vivid and pretty spectacular for the price. I'm using this monitor as my Netflix, Disney + and Hulu binge too over my Samsung HDR 1000 R8000 TV from 2019. This monitor is a little bit too big for sitting close so make sure you can at least sit back a little and be comfortable.

    Great picture quality and HDR

    I chose this over OLED because I didn't want to worry about burn-in. The black levels on this monitor are absolutely amazing even though the pixels can't be completely turned off. HDR is also a great experience since the brightness is insanely high. The screen is also very large and has a lot of space to work with.

    Excellent monitor, QA lacking

    This monitor is incredible. The size is great, I had to mount to a wall behind my desk to get proper ergonomics. The resolution, refresh rate and everything is stellar. Gigabytes QA is a bit lacking though, my first monitor came with significant dust behind the display cover that could not be removed. The second monitor was nearly perfect, however there was a small piece of dust near one of the corners behind the display cover. I decided to keep it since at my normal sitting distance it was not perceptible. B&H was great with the return policy, however I wish they had the ability to send a replacement before receiving the first return. This would allow customers to compare displays and not be without a monitor. Be sure to check the display for dead pixels and dust, but otherwise expect an incredible display.

    RPG and MMO games are absolutely gorgeous on this monitor! But still very good looking for First person as well but lag can cause issue for competitive players. Casual players won't care.

    Complete game changer for PC HDR gaming and media!

    By William
    Rated 5 out of 5
    Date: 2022-02-12

    Coming from a 32 1440p 144Hz LG monitor, this is a complete game changer. Using Windows 11 with HDR on and auto HDR for non-native HDR games is incredible. I find myself going back to replay games just to see how amazing and atmospheric they are on this screen. I sit rather close at 36, so for some games I use a 3840x1620 resolution so things are not so overwhelming. The monitor handles the widescreen resolution flawlessly with black bars on the top and bottom while retaining all adaptive sync and HDR functionality. Witcher 3, Forza Horizon 4, Outriders, driving sims, everything I have tried looks so much better than on my previous monitor. This is the best HDR gaming monitor I think you can experience, I would be tempted to try an OLED 48 if I had room to mount my monitor farther back (it's fixed in a cockpit setup for now), but I now know I would miss the brightness this screen can generate. Also the reality of OLED dimming over time and screen burn-in means this is the better option for me. This setup is more immersive in some ways than my HP Reverb G2 VR headset and easily bests any other monitor or TV I have used for gaming and media. Unfortunately the first example of this monitor arrived cracked which seems to be a common experience, but the second one works properly. Pros: Contrast ratio (deep blacks), easily handles scaling for alternate resolutions like 3840x1620 (once you update to latest FO4 firmware using OSD utility), no noticeable ghosting or inverse ghosting from 60-144Hz if you select the correct OD setting (SmartOD does not seem that smart), incredible HDR experience. Cons: They seem to arrived damaged as often as not, so be prepared to RMA if you get a dud. VA panel color shift, and dimmer backlighting at the corners means I would not use this for professional content creation. Text clarity due to the BGR subpixel layout is real if running Windows 10/11 at 100% scaling with no ClearText. I run 150% scaling and ClearText and have zero issues. HDMI 2.1 ports use DSC so on a PC you need a newer video card for 4K HDR 144Hz 10-bit color 4:4:4 chroma, I have zero issues on a Radeon 6800 XT.

    Great Photo Viewing. Excellent professional service from B&H

    Great dynamic, very bright, excellent color saturation, remote adjustable black level. The photo files I used to test this monitor are Hasselblad X1D medium format. This monitor can display the Hasselblad real color spacing and 16-bit depth. Excellent for viewing. May be too bright for workstation within short distance. Kim Tam, California.
