Best value 1440p high refresh rate monitor on the market, hands down- At least at the time of this writing (July 2019). I picked this up for $300 and it's been worth every penny. The panel has beautiful color accuracy, nearing IPS territory and beating many VA panels I've seen, with a wonderful 1ms response time that has minimal ghosting if you keep it at the 'Normal' or 'Fast' settings. Freesync through the HDMI 2.0 port works flawlessly on the 'fast' setting, giving a very smooth gaming experience with no tearing to be found. Viewing angles are good but not great, which is going to happen with a TN panel. Same with contrast and brightness- good but not amazing.
Another added bonus- using a proper DisplayPort 1.2 cable, I was able to use G-Sync without a problem via a 1080ti FTW3 that a friend let me borrow/test. I didn't experience any flickering or visual artifacts in Forza Horizon 4, Apex Legends, Destiny 2, Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, or Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. The only difference is the sync floor- 55hz vs 40hz with Freesync. But from 55hz all the way up to 155hz, it performed perfectly.
I can't comment on the stand, as I immediately mounted the display on a monitor arm using the available VESA mounting points.
The built-in USB 3.0 4-port hub works great and is the perfect place to put wireless dongles for bluetooth, mouse, keyboard, etc.
The buttons on the bottom right are hard to see, but easy to feel. The UI is standard fare and functions as needed, even if it's not flashy.
The build quality of the panel itself is fantastic. It feels sturdy and well put together. A simple, professional aesthetic that eschews the typical 'Gamer Flair' that can look childish at times means this monitor will fit in fine in any environment. The physical bezels, aside from the bottom chin, are small, but there are larger in-display bezels that aren't visible when the panel is off. These bezels aren't overly large and are what I'd consider 'standard' size. The screen is matte with what seems to be a decent anti-glare coating.
The monitor only ships with an HDMI 2.0 cable in addition to the power cable and USB 3.0 pass-through cable. If you want to use the 155hz refresh rate or G-Sync, you will need to purchase a DisplayPort 1.2 or better cable yourself, so keep that in mind. The provided HDMI 2.0 cable, when plugged into the appropriate port, works great all the way up to 144hz, but will not allow you to overclock the monitor to the 155hz max refresh rate.
For the picture quality, feature set, and G-Sync compatibility, if you see this thing anywhere close to $300, grab it. You won't regret it.

Awesome monitor, especially for the price. 1440p is a little hard on my 2060, but I still get 100+ frames on everything.

Build quality upon opening the box was stunning and reminded me of the iMac's design aesthetic. Plenty of wire inputs on the back for speakers/usb/hdmi1 and 2/display port. Comes with an HDMI cord and if you use the hdmi 2 input will give you up to 144Hz. Only with display port and overclocked will you get 155Hz. The picture quality is impressive when running games and programs in 1440p.
