    Hands down the best value performance monitor in my book.

    After days of searching for a new monitor, this nonchalantly ticked every box on my wishlist and for a great price at my local Microcenter. 1440p, 144Hz, IPS Panel, Adjustable stand, USB 3.0 ports, and a huge Freesync support range (30-144Hz!).

    It might not have the '1ms gamer response time' or 'A++ Panel', but none of those were anywhere close to dealbreakers. Sure, the speakers are utter crap, but if you're dropping 500+ on a monitor, there's a good chance you have headphones/speakers already. If you can find it at a good price, it's a surefire hit.

    the best thing i bought! came out of the box flawless. 144hz 1440p IPS panel with 4ms response time. pinch me i'm dreaming! beautiful monitor, crisp resolution, great colors out of the box.. haven't even fiddled with it yet to improve.

    stand is solid, monitor adjusts in height and tilts. and rotates between horizontal and vertical.

    and it's freesync - which looks great. i think it has a g-sync sibling too, with the same specs.

    Very nice monitor. It is great to play at this resolution and still have 144 Hz as well. This is a perfect monitor to buy because it is going to take a longer period of time before any gpu will be able to max it out.

    Incredible monitor, but at a cost.

    144hz 1440p IPS Freesync, it's the only one in existence.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong but the speakers are an absolute embarrassment. I wasn't expecting much but they are basically horrible. I am using the audio stream from the DisplayPort cable and it sounds like someone's iPhone headphones are too loud on the train.

    I got this monitor for $400 at the Micro Center. Last time I checked they still had it. It's a great 1440p + 144Hz + IPS + reputable brand combo. As far as I know, this is the same panel found in the Asus MG279Q. That one is $150 more expensive and has thicker bezels on the top and sides. One thing people might not like is the red-dark orange ring on the base but it doesn't bother me. Image quality looks nice and uniform but I'm no expert. Viewing angles are great and there is very little color shift.

    Awesome monitor, looks amazing and love Freesync, can never go back! Hard to find many reviews on it but took the plunge and have no regrets. Approx £150 more expensive than the TN version, but has the adjustable stand as well, so worth every penny. The stand also works as a great way to group all the cables together on my desk.

    1440p, 144Hz, IPS, all great. I din't go for G-Sync as it was an extra £150 and i don't notice tearing so i play with VSYNC off.

    Great resolution and no noticeable bleeding, I got pretty luck with the LCD lottery!

    Great value for a 1440p144 IPS Monitor. Got it from Micro Center for 330 dollars and it has no dead pixels or anything. Speakers are bad, but I really don't use them.

    IPS panel looks amazing, and I enabled Freesync on an RTX 2070 with no issues. The 4ms response time does cause ghosting when (for example) a black plane flies through white clouds. Setting overdrive to normal in OSD (which it is set to by default) helps a bit, but a ripple effect is still noticable.

    Again, it's a great value for such a monitor and I would highly recommend it.
