Good Monitor. I've only been using it for about a week but it runs at the advertised resolution and refresh rate and was significantly cheaper than comparable monitors. However, the one star off is for the stand. As I was on a budget I thought it would be an easy way to save $20 dollars to go for the non-adjustable "stand". When it arrived, the stand turned out to be a flat metal panel with 5 holes drilled in it for the actual arm that is attached to the monitor to slot into, no method if securing it or anything. I've already almost tipped the thing over so if you're going to get this monitor, which I still recommend, just pay the extra $20 for a decent stand.

Terrific color. Wide viewing angle. Overall fantastic monitor.
If you're doing a multi-monitor setup though... the bezels are nearly an inch wide. Not really a problem if you're just using the screens individually... but I could see it being an issue for multi-screen gaming.
Mine came with 2 dead pixels. They're not near the middle of the screen, so I never notice them.

I absolutely love this monitor. I got it when it first came out, in April/2017. Colors are extremely noticeably better than my two other cheaper monitors. Even though Im using a Nvidia card (so no freesync) the 144hz is fantastic for Rocket League. Very little backlight bled compared to my other IPS monitors. There is one dead pixel that is always black but even tho i know where it is, it takes me a few seconds to even find it. Its pretty much unnoticeable. Highly recommended

Great display with no dead/stuck pixels. Build quality is "good enough" but I have it mounted and won't be messing with it all too much. Only complaint is the matte coating: definitely seen worse but isn't as clean as Dell's coating.

Did you manage to get G-Sync working?

These monitors are, with some qualifications pretty great. 144hz gaming is a dream, and I think it's going to be hard to ever go back. I'm permanently ruined. The colors are also pretty good, though not out of the box. The first thing I noticed is that the whites... weren't white. They were some kind of orangy off white. I was able to make some color adjustments so that the screen looked good, but be prepared to feel a little let down when you first turn it on. Just know that it can be fixed, and once it is, you're golden. edit: For some reason, an entire paragraph explaining the photos has disappeared from this review. Weird. Here's the short version: One panel came with a tiny, tiny speck of dust under the glass. Another came with a dead pixel. According to Nixeus, the one with dust under the panel can be sent in for warranty repair, but the one with the dead pixel is not. The dead pixel one I expected. It is common to have a threshold for dead pixels. In practice, I don't really notice either.

So, are they worth it? I say yes. Sure, both of them had some kind of defect but on the other hand I paid $360 per monitor instead of $430-500 (the price of competing panels). Just know that the quality control seems, in my case, to have been a bit spotty. Update 2/4/2019: I'm afraid I have to update this once more. I am having yet more problems. The on screen source select is popping up intermittently on one of the monitors during use. I have them mounted on arms and I think it has something to do with some wobble it might be experiencing. Remounting it and changing how tight the mounting screws were has helped, but it hasn't totally eliminated the problem. . I've tried vacuuming the buttons and blowing compressed air into their crevices, but that hasn't helped either. I have no idea why shaking the monitor very gently would register as a button press. If it gets much worse I will be sending both monitors back for warranty repair (it's the one with the dead pixel). The monitors are good, but I'm now fed up to the point that I want to be made whole. I'm not looking forward to the hassle of shipping two whole monitors but such is life. I'm knocking off another star for my trouble. Surely my time is not worthless, and maybe I would have been better off spending a tad more money.

You said you had to fix the whites, can you tell us how or at least link an article you used?

I did it by eye by comparing it against my old monitor. I don't have any calibrating equipment, and FWIW your mileage may vary. There was no article, sadly. That I can remember anyway.
My settings are Gamma 2.2, R 115, G 117, B 128. Every monitor is different etc etc.

Been using this monitor for 9ish months with a RX 480 and it has been great. No dead pixels and the freesync is great. Can't go wrong with this monitor!

This is a very good 144hz monitor but mine came with dead pixels out of the box thankfully its in the corner. I was a disappointed to see that nixeus will not accept a return in this case. On the display menu to turn up ad down brghtness I found that the forward and backworks are switch/correspond with the volume up and down. And like all monitor speakers they don't sound good at all. Despite all the criticism I really do like this monitor it looks great the 144hz is great since I no longer experience any tearing in games I just wish that out of the box it didn't have dead and stuck pixels which seem to be a common occurrence.

I've been using it for 9 months with a Vega 56 and it works great. No dead pixels.

Had this monitor for over a year now and it has been fantastic. I tested this 1st using a 580 then later upgrading to a Vega 64 to push higher frame rates. No matter how low my frames tanked or how high I was able to get them, the freesync range allowed for a smooth image. I have zero dead pixels and have had zero quality issues. I highly recommend this monitor to any amd users.
