"Worth the money, excellent quality!"

  • Pros:
    IPS
  • Pros:
    true 4ms response
  • Pros:
    g-sync
  • Pros:
    27inch
  • Pros:
    Nice and fast menu + control
  • Con:
    Minor Backlight bleed

Once you start looking for >=144hz 2k 27inch IPS 4ms there are not many screen's left. this uses the same panel as a similar one from acer.

Usual issues are back light bleed, Which is very minor on my item, and dead pixels (mine had non).

This screen is exactly what i was looking for and the image quality is Superb. Can recommend is to everyone (and i did to some).

Worth the money, excellent quality!
