    Beautiful Monitor with Lofty Freesync Range

    I had the intention of replacing my current 60Hz IPS monitor with the Optix G24C so I could take advantage of my RX 470's Freesync capabilities. Unfortunately, the Optix's Freesync minimum is a rather high 90Hz. As capable as the RX 470 is, it can't maintain 90 frames per second at 1080p, high settings in Final Fantasy 14, the main game I play. I even tried using a program called Custom Resolution Utility to manually lower the minimum refresh rate, but anything under 80Hz would cause the screen to flicker. I returned this monitor since it wouldn't work as intended, but a curved 1080p/144Hz/VA monitor at $250 is still quite a bargain for someone who doesn't care about Freesync. The blacks and viewing angles were excellent. I watched Deathly Hallows while moving about cleaning my room and I could make out the darkest scenes easily. Color depth isn't as high though. While gaming, I did noticed slight artifacts and banding in Hitman 4's initial loading screen, neither of which occurred on my IPS monitor. Again, very slight and no where near as gratuitous as an older TN panel I occasionally use. Physically, the monitor is solidly built, especially the heavy metal stand and neck--no wobble whatsoever. No dead/stuck pixels either. Backlight bleed is also commendable. The individual LED's are noticeable from a distance (like five feet away) when blacks are displayed, but when at regular sitting distance the light disperses and reminds me of IPS glow. Really a shame the Freesync Range is such a lofty 90-144Hz. The monitor itself and the images it produces are absolutely stunning, and the curved screen makes media consumption and gaming so immersive. The blue/purple hazing of other Samsung based VA monitors isn't present either. It isn't what I'm looking for, but if Freesync isn't a concern and a 144hz VA panel sounds desirable, I have no problems recommending the G24C.

    Perfect for Gaming and Streaming Videos

    This monitor is possibly the best budget gaming monitor you can get on the market around this price. It has a curved panel that you can view from any angle you can think of, and the 144hz refresh rate is truly amazing. You notice an instant difference in performance and smoothness if upgrading from a 60hz monitor. The blue light filter included along with the other preset modes are great additions to this monitors and build quality is exceptional. A aluminum stand (similar to the textures of Macbook Pros) hold the monitor up, and is screwed into the actual panel itself.

    Recently bought this FHD monitor which has a refresh rate of 144 hertz during a sale for $150 and I love it. It has great quality and when I paired it next to a cheaper ASUS monitor I got, the quality difference was unbelievable and I even returned it and bought another MSI monitor. The only problem is that it is sold out and I guess that is because this is such a good monitor. Works well with my RTX 2070.

    If you're concerned about the curve don't be, you barely notice it after looking at it for a while. I did change out to a longer DP cable after I got it because the one that came with it wasn't quite long enough yet. I have a VESA arm mount but it looks like I need to get some sort of adapter to make it fit, haven't really looked into it too much yet.

    It's really hard to explain how amazing the shift is to such a high quality monitor like this one. Going to 144 fps is such a liberating feeling, and on a 1080p curved screen it's really a spectacle. I've only had it for a a little while and people keep telling me how cool it is.

    Bought the monitor as a potential upgrade, not realizing just how big of an upgrade this would be for my year old $80 monitor. Absolutely love the frame rate so far and the picture is great. Of course, this is all within the first day of owning it!

    if your thinking about getting this plz do!! You will not regret it. I got it a tiny bit cheaper with a price match but still it was way worth it. Only down side to it that you have to get an vesa adapter if you want to put it on a monitor stand

    I already knew what I wanted, as I had purchased this monitor before. Best Buy had a sale going on and offered it for cheaper than anywhere else. For someone looking to break into gaming at faster than 60FPS this is a great starting monitor!

    My son really likes the curved display. What I noticed is the colors, I couldn't get as deep as what's advertised. It's good,but a little duller than expected. Overall no complaints

    1 ms response time with high high hz = smooth gaming experience I personally bought 2. I have a dual monitor setup because these are curved making the view angles inviting.

    Very clear screen and love the curve on it. Bought one for each of my boys. The only thing I didn't like is that it doesn't specifically say that it doesn't come with an HDMI cord.

    Works good, but hertz is too high for my computer and video game care I have. The Game card I have is on low end so had to turn down hertZ.
