  • Pros:
    165hz
  • Pros:
    Stand
  • Pros:
    Good Quality TN panel
  • Pros:
    HUD
  • Con:
    Color Calibration takes a while

Surprisingly good colors considering it is a TN panel. Reaction time is really good. Indeed the downside would be if you watching in from close distance that the resolution for this size is low, however me using it from an average of 1m distance is perfectly fine.

Games and average daily use is perfect on this monitor.
