Summary: 144hz gaming is amazing... for a few hours. If you are on the fence choosing between this and, say, a 1440p or an IPS, ditch this monitor and go for the higher resolution or better colors instead.
Pros: 144hz is very smooth in games that support it... of which there are very few 144hz desktop experience is neat. everything moves and re-sizes so cleanly Seems solidly built. Stand and adjustments are great.
Cons: Colors: they suck. After calibration (custom color profile and some osd menu tweaking) they are better, but still not good. Contrast: yuck. Calibration does little to help this. everything always seems to bright or too dark, too washed out or too muddy. 1080p resolution: yes a i know it's a budge...
Decent Monitor Strange Green Line On Screen (Vertically)
Eddy C., Newegg
10 December 2015
Summary: When I got the monitor I runned some tests to see if there were no dead pixels,one thing was for sure i spotted a line vertically from the top of the monitor to the bottom of it.
Pros: Overall this monitor is great with the price,since this monitor has 144Hz and 3D capabilities. All else this is a very nice monitor to play FPS games.Also the 180 Swivel is also nice for turning the monitor.
Cons: I do not recommend using the in speakers as the sound quality is horrible. The monitor also tends to get dusty and picks up fingerprints really easily.
Summary: Its just sad to see it returned. I don't know if this speaker issue is a part of all monitors or just mine, just be careful before you purchase.
Pros: Beautiful, high refresh rate, adjustable monitor positioning (landscape/portrait) and cable management in the back. Nice options for games and settings.
Cons: Speakers have a white noise that is noticeable whenever the volume is higher than 65/100 on certain screens (like when playing Metal Gear 5). It became too much and unfortunately had to grab a refund.
Pros: 144 hz is great, great FPS value and the monitor is perfect for any gamer looking to get any kind of edge playing.
Cons: The stand is literally terrible. Whoever designed something that won't lock when it is holding up a $250 monitor on it needs to be fired. Thinking I wasn't locking the stand correctly I asked colleagues and friends and NONE of them are able to lock theirs. Example: my desk is low so the monitor i...
Summary: Bought one of these last year and instantly fell in love with it. The colors were sharp, the 144hz refresh rate changed how games looked and played DRASTICALLY. Forward to about now when I finally get some extra pocked change I order a second one cause I wanted a dual monitor setup and I've been...
Summary: Let me start off by saying i do love this monitor. The high refresh rate has given older games a breath of fresh air. The colors are amazing. My main issue lies with ASUS as a company, and probably my hardware.
Summary: There's something odd about the colours with this, and the viewing angle has to be perfect, you need to be slightly lower than centre. The sound sucks on it but nobody that wants a monitor for gaming uses the stock speakers.. and if you do, get a better job.
Uneven back lighting ruins a perfect gaming monitor
3 March 2014
Summary: This monitor is perfect for fast paced FPS. The response is absolutely unbelievable. The only reason it's not getting 5 stars is because the spacing of the back lights is absolutely awful. I can't play any dark games on it at all because it is so distracting.
