Amazing monitor. This is my first 1440p 144hz monitor and its fantastic! 1440p makes everything look crystal clear and 144hz is a huge improvement over 60hz. Freesyn calso works great along with my r9 390x. This monitor has plenty of real estate and makes any game look fantastic. Plenty of inputs - I currently have my rig, a raspberry pi, and a laptop plugged in for easy switching between workstations.

1080p vs 1440p really isn't a huge difference. What I was really looking for when I went monitor shopping was that 144Hz refresh rate. This is a great monitor, with a 144Hz refresh rate and 1 ms response time, and the 1440p does look better then 1080p, even if its not that much better. Only problem? There still isn't a whole lot of wallpapers in 2560x1440.

Great monitor. Is really cheap compared to other monitors that are similar but it still performs great. It has all the inputs you'd need.

Was able to get this monitor when it was on sale for $399.99. I was able to enjoy the whole idea it's a 1440p and it's only a 27inch screen. It even has the speakers on it so I didn't want to purchase separate speakers personally. Only drawback is that it's a Freesync monitor since I have GeForce.

Absolutely beautiful display. It has a fully adjustable stand for swiveling Right/Left and Up/Down and sliding Up/Down. Built in speakers sound nice and the user interface/menu system isn't completely pants-on-head retarded like some other manufacturers'...
