      Let me start by saying that I love this monitor. I purchased two of them, one for myself and the other for my girlfriend to go along with our high end desktop gaming setups, and I've thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. The colors are fantastic to other monitors I've used, and the refresh rate is the real champ here. Combine this with a 1080 graphics card, and you'll never want to go back to a standard 60hz refresh again. That's actually the worst part of it, going back to 30/60hz refresh on standard console games is nauseating. It's a hit to the wallet for sure, but if you're ready to embrace the PC master race, this is a great place to start.

      The jump from 1080p to 1440p is incredible not only that but the high 144hz refresh rate adds to the experience. It also comes with freesync for AMD cards which I highly recommend activating because there is literally no screen tearing or stuttering throughout the games I have tested. It is a bit pricy but worth the investment the colors are very accurate for a TN panel and the colors pop. This monitor has no flaws absolutely perfect for the gaming enthusiast. here is a review from a trusted source if you're still curious in purchasing this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TM8nxvKQ9No

      I like this monitor a lot. I got it for good price being on sale. Asus will never let me down on their products except this one....sorta...This monitor in most comparable way is a bigger resolution ASUS VG248QE with this one being flicker free. Love both except this 1440p TN color seemed a little funky to me. I'm a huge overwatch player and this monitor requires a lot of adjustment to make it 90%/100% bearable. Other than that i haven't found a reason to not like this monitor. .

      Fast delivery everything came as specified. Monitor has rich colors and it's great for gaming.you do need a beefy GPU to push it though.. underpowered GPU for this is a waste of time you won't get the full benefits of this .

      Screen is awesome! Colors are vibrant, images look crisp, and 144hz looks amazing. I’m running a GTX gpu so I can’t take full advantage of the freesync but it still hits 144hz with no issue. If you have a AMD gpu, this is the monitor for you!

      Prior to buying this monitor, I have never experienced anything higher than 60fps for gaming. Now I have experienced 144fps and it is awesome. The monitor looks great and has a knob on the back that makes navigating the menu really easy.

      This is a very nice monitor. Power it with a video card that can push it or it's just not worth it. Makes all my games look smooth at 1440p and 144Hz. It's just a little bit on the expensive side.

      Great screen replaced an old samsung from 2007. first thing i noticed was way more detail in pictures and regular desktop backgrounds. 1ms response time and 144Hz. huge improvement over last flat screen.
