Loving this monitor. Pros: 1920 x 1080 Resolution ...

UncleBourbon, Amazon
2 September 2014
  • Summary: Loving this monitor. Pros: 1920 x 1080 Resolution that can be set at various refresh rates. Cons: Not all games will work at 144 Hz. I will say this may be due to my type of video card (AMD 6990) or a mix of games/ hardware issue. The max i was able to get this monitor to work with all games was at 120hz max resolution (and yes there is a difference between 60 hz and 120 hz).

FlashFlood, Amazon

  • Summary: This monitor is amazing, it is the fastest i have ever seen and gaming is a dream on it... only if it wasn't for that TN panel. While it isnt a huge issue this monitor trades color accuracy and viewing angles for its 144hz refresh rate. For serious gaming it is a good choice among others. However, any sort of workstation applications are impossible with this monitor. Especially color work.

Dead pixel within 6 months of purchase...

Matt Nelson, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this in march, It already has a dead pixel that shows horrifically on any dark image. I have a primary monitor from HP that I purchased 8 years ago, 2560 by 1600, with 100% of its pixels still intact.

  • Pros: Good picture for a TN panel. Adjustable stand. USB 3.0 HUB. 144HZ !
  • Cons: Colors are a bit lacking but that is to be expected in a TN panel.

This is a nice monitor but if you're buying this for Fps games ...

Darryl Cacal, Amazon
2 August 2014
  • Summary: I bought this for console gaming. Wish I would have noticed the Response Time being 5ms. There are cheaper monitors for gaming with a Response Time of 1ms. This is a nice monitor but if you're buying this for Fps games then I wouldn't recommend it. -- I asked friends who played *using their flat screen TVs* to play in private matches to see if I could notice a difference. I honestly felt like a better player BUT I knew I had the advantage because my monitor is faster.
