This monitor is really great! Out of the box the colors aren't the best, they are washed out. In the preset, "modes", landscape is far too saturated and vibrant. Some tweaking in the custom settings fixes this though. After this, the color representation is 10/10. (I will post my settings on the bottom part of this review if you wish to copy them for your monitor).
The LED power light is well hidden, it will not be annoying. Speakers are not the best as they are located behind the screen, but they do get LOUD if you want them to be and are still something I use everyday.
If you plan to game on this monitor, I suggest using the "Racing" preset mode as a base to start as according to the manufacturers website this setting will reduce input lag for the monitor.
For cable management, there is a gap in the stand itself to pull your video cables through. Pull the door hard to remove the cable door. There is only enough room to fit 2 HDMI cables and the power cable through this small gap.
75Hz IS available using the included HDMI cable. Freesync is not required to hit 75Hz out of box for PC. Consoles will force 60Hz regardless for their max output, this cannot be changed for any monitor/TV.
FOR NVIDIA USERS: In the Nvidia Control Panel under "Change Resolution", change your Output Dynamic Range to FULL from Limited otherwise you will also have washed out colors from this. AND change resolution to PC 1920x1080 from the automatically chosen "Ultra HD" 1080p, 1920x1080 (native) if you want to hit 75Hz.
Settings: Racing mode, No blue light filter selected, Brightness w/e, Contrast 70, Color Temp: normal, SmartView: off, Trace Free: 80, Aspect Control: 0, VividPixel: 0. I also use Flux to make the colors warmer for less eye strain with these settings.

Beautiful and Great Monitor
Posted by: DucTran from: on
This monitor is gorgeous. It is very easy to set up and control the monitor with the bottons on the side. Also, the picture is incredibly clear and very fast response. It is a perfect monitor for gaming as the product's description. Besides, it also included all the HDMI, VGA, and Audio cables although it doesn't mention in the description or on the box. I was a little worry about that but still decided to buy this monitor, and then very happy to see them in the box when I got home. Finally, the price is not bad at all for this great monitor.

After reading positive reviews on this monitor I bought it. It's an excellent monitor and suits my gaming needs. I didn't want to spend the extra for a 144, but I'm impressed.

This monitor was purchased specifically for PS4 gaming. The installation was simple and was achieved in about 2 minutes. It has 2 HDMI ports and they are easily accessible. After I tinkered around the picture settings for a while I was able to get a very good picture. If you research this product online you can find it's best picture settings.
This monitor is well built and is very sturdy. It feels premium for the price
I would say there are more features on this monitor then I will use. This thing is very customizable and I can change the height or turn the screen portrait if I wanted to. It also has a lot of features to help you while gaming that appears on the screen.
The picture is good, not great. Don't be dismayed by that though because I am going from an excellent TV to this monitor. I will give the benefit to the monitor because I have noticed things in games that I could not on my TV because I am a lot closer to the screen.
This monitor has a 1ms response time and I can see it when I play.
It is a 75 HZ monitor but if you have a PS4 or Xbox One you will use 60HZ. It also comes with low lag HDMI ports so it especially helps console gamers.
Verdict: Get one for console gaming. Now.
After playing this for a solid 5 hours (not at once) I have become used to it and it has improved my gaming. I have hit a 4 K/D ratio on BO3 several times and am doing excellent in BF1. A surprise for me was how close I am to the PS4, I could charge my headset while I play. I think this monitor is built specifically for console gaming. You can use it for PC Gaming but if you are searching for a PC Gaming monitor I would check out an ASUS that has 144HZ or more. If you are looking for an everyday task monitor, this would do well but again it's meant for gaming and you should look into a monitor with an IPS Panel.
Personally, I won't be going back to a TV for gaming and I can't wait for a 4K HDR monitor when the Xbox "Scorpio" arrives!

What an amazing monitor
Posted by: JJ30 from: Houston, TX on
I purchased a RX480 (Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB) and wanted to replace my older Asus monitor (non gaming, 5ms response, etc). I saw this bad boy on sale for $149.99 over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend and I pulled the trigger. I play a lot of everything on PC, mainly Battlefield 1 now. This monitor is something else. There is no screen tearing, input lag or graphical flickers. The monitor has a built in FPS counter and crosshair for gamers, I don't use the crosshair but the FPS is a must have for me. Having all of this technology into the screen, made the dynamic shadows in game something surreal. When pairing the new age tech in AMD cards with a new age quality monitor, it leads to majestic qualities. It's like NIGHT and DAY difference over my last monitor.
For build quality, I expect nothing less from Asus and they delivered. The base and back of monitor is easily rotated but does not come easily undone. The buttons are super easy to use and the joystick is super convenient to have. The bezel is super thin and it's machined metal, so it feels cool to the touch and is durable. After all that, it's simply one of the best looking monitors on the market.
This is my first review for a BB product, after shopping here for 20 years, that's how impressed I am with this monitor.

Great monitor, quite affordable!
Posted by: Omid from: on
My unit did not have any dead pixels. Image quality is great. Speakers are loud enough for close range listening in front of the monitor or for a bit longer range listening in a small quiet room (understandably not comparable to a sound system though). No complains.

Great Affordable Gaming Monitor
Posted by: BMH64 from: on
Have RX480 and for 1080p gaming this monitor is great. Has built in speakers and an extra HDMI input for a console.
