Pros & Cons
- Very good homogeneity (no clouding, and a tiny bit backlight bleed)
- Very good colors (you have to set gamma to around 2.2 within software!)
- Excellent price performance ratio
- Very good blacks for a TN panel
- Excellent overdrive settings
- USB Hub with 2 x USB 3.0
- Good build quality
- Good foot stand & cable management
- Easy OSD overview & 3 own presets
- Black Equalizer
- A bit washed out colors (out of the box) without gamma setting changes within graphics card software or hardware calibration
- Matte panel coating (Still less matt and better compared to the Asus PG278QR for example)
- Navigation through touch buttons (not as responsive as physical buttons and a joystick)
- Freesync with a range from 35-120Hz (with CRU 59-144 Hz)
- No backlight strobing / backlight scanning feature
- Bad gamma settings out of the box + no gamma settings within the OSD (before you buy, check if you can change gamma settings)
- Minimal amount of backlight bleed on the lower right - on my unit
