Review

  • First off, Amazon shipped me this monitor terribly packed, but advertised as new. The foam on the instead was torn up, so the monitor was jumbled in the box with the wires touching the screen. I was shocked that the screen was not scratched upon opening the item.Second, my monitor did come with a stand, just the panel. Amazon really screwed up with my order. I had to go buy a wall mount so I could use this.Third, I re-arrange things in my room, and mount the wall mount on my wall. I finally turn the monitor on, and it has TWO DEAD PIXELS IN THE CENTER OF THE SCREEN. This is a 550-600$ dollar monitor. This is absolutely unacceptable, and I will NEVER buy an ASUS product again. What an absolute joke. Do not waste your time and money with this monitor, BUY ANOTHER BRAND.
  • I’ll start my review saying this is a good gaming monitor. Input lag and response time are really low and G-Sync works very well. The colors are vibrant and viewing angles really not bad for a TN panel. Now the issue: My first monitor came with a dead pixel. Got a replacement and it has a very bright stuck blue pixel. I really liked the monitor, but my question to Asus QC folks: Will a 3rd monitor work for me? For the high price, this should be perfect on the first time!!
  • Why cut so many design corners on such an expensive monitor. If you are paying this much for a monitor I would expect things like:- Not using the cheapest flimsiest possible clips for the back cover that break in the first week- Not adding useless jutting out components in your mounting design requiring the purchase of an additional mounting adapter to ACTUALLY use a VESA mount- Creating any sort of intuitive mount in the first place to remove or attach mounting armsIf you want 240hz congrats you can get it. Just don’t be surprised when all of the plastics break and fall apart and it is impossible to mount the monitor on anything other than the included stand. Make sure to check out the mounting options and remove the back panel more than once within the return window, I made the mistake of thinking the quality would match the price and am stuck with this garbage.
  • Paid well over $500 for this monitor, had issues with it almost immediately. A bright pixel appeared after 1 day of use, and the lightbleed was terrible. Maybe I was just unlucky, from my research is looks like TN panels are hit or miss, but its the price you pay for 1 ms response time. I ended up going with another brand (Alienware) with the same specs but it was ~$60 cheaper in the labor day sale. Thank god for amazon’s return policy, otherwise I would have to deal with Asus to get this fixed, who are notorious for their horrible customer service. I also had an Asus gaming laptop that caught on fire after 2 years of use; I thought they were at least reasonable at manufacturing monitors. Don’t let the E-sports endorsements fool you, this is a poorly made product.
  • Having gone from 60Hz to 144Hz, the difference is obvious. Going from 144Hz to 240Hz I can tell. Animation is way more fluid, stutter free. The beauty is, that when playing games pushing above 144FPS, I’m getting all the frames between 144FPS and 240FPS in front of my eyes. For first person shooters, this is a luxury.This is a specialty monitor. I don’t recommend buying this if you don’t have a GPU that can push over 144FPS in all your games. You will never see it. Hope that makes sense.The reason why I gave this 4 stars is because the color quality looks washed out. Yes, its a TN monitor. Not IPS. Compared to a dozen other monitors I have, its not very good. Using it to watch videos or do Photoshop work, I wouldn’t recommend. Its way too bland.A very important thing to note is that you must use Display port to get 240Hz. For the life of me, Asus should just forget even providing HDMI support. Nobody in their right mind is going to spend this kind of money for using HDMI at 60Hz. With all the cables that come with the product, there is so much waste and additional cost. Cost that is passed onto the consumer.
  • I wanted a secondary monitor that was unique, and this one is perfect. while not as dramatic of a change like 60 to 144hz is, It was immediately noticeable to me. Others who are very experienced will notice the benefits, but to the common gamer this is absolute overkill.DO NOT buy this expecting to play like a champion, you will still play the way you have been used to on a 144hz monitor, but with a much smoother image.I can see this monitor having some “Holy Grail” effect and people buying this thinking it was the only reason they aren’t the best, because they are being held back. This is not the case. Buying this monitor is for great input lag, and a very smooth image making tracking and flick shots but easier for your eyes to track. That is all.As it is my second monitor, I am more than happy because I can switch between a 240hz monitor, and a more color accurate 1440p IPS 144hz monitor depending on what I am doing. I highly reccomend you focus your money on a quality 144hz monitor before buying this one, unless you both have money to burn, and are an avid fast twitch game player.
  • this monitor is awesome for gaming but it needs to be calibrated it for everything else. i did the following;-brightness: 25-contrast: 40color temp: user mode. R-95 G-99 B-99gamma 2.4OD: normalAdaptive contrast control: OFFDark Boost: NONEsince im using a msi laptop it came with MSI true color which i have in gamer mode and i tuned the display gamma to +8 and adjusted the color temperature to +1, after doing this, it looked like 200% better than out of the box, almost as good as my laptop monitor which also has a TN panel but it was factory calibrated by msi (MSI GT75VR 7RE).overall im very happy with this monitor, but some of you might find the screen quality a little disappointing out of the box, but after calibrating it, it really is a great display! (for a TN panel)
