    Now and then Bes But will have a refurbished one of these for $200 and its amazing! Some bleed around the edges in complete black screens but that's totally fine with me. No dead pixels and its a very sleek looking and affordable 1440p monitor.

    This monitor is beautiful. For an $200, a 1440p 60Hz IPS monitor? The only issue with it (and it is an issue) is that the stand sucks. Its very wobbly (even when I type) and there isn't really an option for VESA mounting, you have to jerry-rig it up for mounting. But for $200 where I grabbed it, its awesome.

    I would hesitate to buy this at $340 (which is what it went up to after Newegg had a sale one it) due to the stand issues, but if you can find it for cheap, get it. The panel itself is awesome.

    awesome display. speakers arent good, and no height adjustment. but its not bad enough to take away a star. hard to beat this at its price point!

    Great Specs for the price and gorgeous colors without any light bleed in all three, don't know if thats just luck or good QC.

    This is a really good budget 2560x1440p monitor. The display is gorgeous and arrived without any dead pixels. The downside is the base is not the most sturdy (make sure you hold it down when plugging cables in or you'll push it right off the desk). Also, the base has some rough edges that can scratch your furniture. This happened to my coffee table.

    from completed build Ryzen 5 1600 GTX 1070 Silence

    Occasionally on sale for $210, which is what I got it for. I'm waiting for that sale again and I'll get a second one. Easily overclocked to 80 Hz with no frame skipping, which is a nice fit for the GTX 1070. If I didn't do so much editing, however, I probably would have gone for a 144Hz 1080p monitor or 1080 with G-Sync. 1440 has 77% more pixels than 1080 resolution, which means it's 77% harder for your GPU to manage. But man it looks good. Great colors out of the box and brightness that can easily overcome my sunny office space. Recommended when on sale.

    from completed build Ascension: toaster to Microwave

    anyone thinking of going with 1440p i would recommend you do it because the picture clarity is very noticeable especially in games like battlefront. the ips display makes colors pop and it runs at 75 hz for me with no issues. also the price makes this monitor incredible for the value.
