Everything as described. My PS4 runs way smoother and crisp with this monitor vs my old iOS 4K monitor. Switching to pc soon and this monitor should be perfect for that too with the 165hz and fast response time. I went through 4 different gaming monitors before sticking with this one

The monitor is everything I wanted in a gaming monitor. Response color adjustable height. Tilt swivel and pivot. The monitor is fantastic a must have. I will be buying a second. The one thing I would like is more cross hair options on it.

Good monitor for a reasonable price. Works out of the box and has both DP and HDMI as well as other ports and cables. The display port cable included did break after around 7 months of use though.

Got this as an upgrade from my 60 hz monitor I used for gaming and it's suprisingly shocking at how good it is. I often go into the office next to my room to just look at what it was upgraded from and it's just one of those things that you will not make sense unless you have experienced it first...

I got this as a twin to my main monitor, and I love these panels. Plenty of real estate, amazingly smooth refresh rate, and a really well made piece. Plus the g-sync functionality makes a great difference!

Hello. I am trying to change display settings, I am trying to change it to 165hz but when I try to change it it only gives me an option to do 64hz, is there any way I can change the refresh rate to 165hz.

GOOD I like the brightness and colors. The speed on DVI was very good, HDMI normal. Using an ASUS GTX 1060 6 GB card. BAD Color pixels were off, 1 pixel on the right red, one on the left green, made for some blurring of letters and numbers (HDMI and DVI cables, all settings tried) Runescape and some...

I havent had any issues with this monitor so far, was easy to setup and i love the range of motion is has with the included stand. it can be adjusted up/down, rotated and tilts. The pre made settings are pretty good too.

It's a great product! Several different picture modes and customizable screen overlays including a center crosshair THATS ACTUALLY CENTERED!! And full range of adjustability.

I have had this monitor for about 2 years now, and I have loved it. It feels good to use and the 165hz is amazing, however the 1920/1080p feels low for a 27" monitor. It does not look kind of pixelated when trying to look at a high quality image, or playing games with rtx on, or games with a high...
