-Great Colour -G-Sync Compatible -Sturdy Stand -Height Adjustable -No Dead Pixels
-There is back light bleed but not severe -Speakers aren't worth your thought. (But who uses them) -If you are thinking of doing a multiple monitor set up just be mindful the bezels are thin but there is a strip of the screen inside the bezel that isn't actual screen. Edge of monitor to actual screen is 11mm.
Picked this monitor up a while ago and i must say I am impressed. Colours are great, contrast is pretty good, no motion blur that I can see and no dead or stuck pixels. Over all a great value compared to the Lg GL850 that was the second option. But there is backlight bleed but not severe. In normal usage you wont notice it but if you have a black screen you are going to see it. But if your fussy it might bother you. That being said this monitor is a great value and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Huge improvement from the 1080p TN panel I was using.

Great price for what you get. 27",144hz,1440p,IPS,HDR all that for this price is a great deal.
There is more then i would of liked bleeding from the backlight. No Swivel/rotation movement on stand. You need multiple button presses to turn off monitor, which gets annoying if you are someone who doesn't leave their screens on standby.
Overall the negatives are all minor, and the pros outweigh the cons.

ridiculously good price for what it is very good colour way better than the TN panel I switched from
I don't think the response time is 1m, it feels ever so slightly slower than the TN panel I switched from, but i stopped noticing after about 1/2 hour of usage Also it does have speakers, but they are not loud at all, at 100% volume if there is someone else in the room I struggle to hear them, but if i dont feel like wearing my headphones, which is pretty often, it is a super nice feature to just watch a youtube video through the monitor speakers. Small amount of IPS bleed on the middle left and top right of the panel, you'd never notice it unless you're looking for it though
Would recomend, the pros very much outweigh the cons, on sale for $389 at the time of writing, and at that price its a no brainer

Great picture In depth menu options Fast response time 144 Hz is great Good build quality No dead pixels Adjustable stand Works with GSync
Some IPS panel bleed, but nothing major. Speakers aren't great .... But work in a pinch.
There is not a ton of information out on these monitors but I took the plunge and grabbed one. Very happy I did, allows for some great menu adjustments to set it perfectly for gaming - make sure to have overdrive set to "speed". Decent actual response time, nice colours, some backlight bleed but not bad. Great on screen adjustment program. Tilt and height adjustment on the stand. Seems well built. Kept this over it's more expensive As or Ac competition. Highly recommend! Thanks!

Minimal Ghosting issue, would recommend using overdrive mode for least ghosting, least noticeable on this setting. Black Equalizer Minimalistic look if you're into that. Great Colors, might have to calibrate on first use. Freesync premium/Gsync compatible, first time I've ever used it, been missing out. Tilt and Height adjustments. I found the 1 button for all joystick easy to use, compared to what other reviews have said about it on the net. Sidekick OSD software if you dont wanna use the monitor joystick to navigate OSD, alot faster. OSD Crosshair options. 144HZ, not 160hz(that's the curved model (g27Qc)). Vesa mountable, very easy to mount to a monitor arm. Matte monitor screen. I came from a glossy early 120hz asus monitor, never going back to that. No black color smudging from what I've noticed.
Little bit of backlight glow in the bottom right, expected with IPS, but I have never noticed because I don't play in a dark room. HDR is okay, not the greatest, looks fine for video tho, not games. The frame bezels could be a lot thinner, although it's not a huge issue. No point in having speakers built in, could've save some production costs. Any changes to the OSD options such as enabling Aim stabilizer and Freesync will move your desktop items back to primary screen if using multimonitor setup. Not a whole lot of reviews for this version of the monitor on the internet, needs more.
This is a really good monitor for the price, would recommend getting it whenever its on sale, I was in the market for a 2K monitor for Cyberpunk 2077 and hopefully get my RTX 3080 by then. Gigabyte needs to make a IPS curved version of this monitor and I would totally buy that instead. Some people have gotten dead pixels with their, but maybe I just got lucky, no issues out of the box when I got mine.

Small bezel Accurate colour (as expected with IPS) Windows-based control of monitor settings (WAY better than fiddling with a few buttons on the bottom of your monitor) Granular control of monitor settings, with saveable profiles Usb3 hub is a nice touch Comes with 3 regional AC cables Comes with both an HDMI cable and a display port 1.2 cable
Not many, so these are more nit-picky and don't seem concerning to me. Stand is a little wobbly. Not too bad, but if you're rough at your desk, you'll get some monitor shake. AC cable uses a non-standard external transformer. The total cable length is longer than most monitors because of this, but you now have to deal with a device-specific power adapter. It IS a barrel plug, so it may be replaceable with a 3rd party adapter if it breaks On-screen fps counter (and other OSD stats) are clunky and suffer from being oversized/poorly located. You can't, for example, put the FPS counter in the bottom right corner. Instead, it hovers about 5 inches higher, and takes up a lot of space. So that renders this feature kind of useless.
Overall, I think this monitor is great for its price. I got it on price match at about $410, but its base price is very reasonable for the product itself. Image quality is high, assembly is easy, and does what's described on the tin: 1440p at 144hz. Accepts 32 bit colour profiles. I switched to this from a 24" 1080p 144hz Predator monitor, which I hated. Compared to my smaller 22" IPS ASUS monitor that I keep on the side, the acer looked like crap. But it had Freesync, and I really can't handle frame tearing. But the Predator monitor was a weak TN panel. Viewing angles were garbage, and colour accuracy was a joke, even for 8 bit. It is not overstating things to say that I enjoy gaming VASTLY more now on this monitor. I didn't realize how big an impact this change would have. The colors are gorgeous, the blacks are deep, and the backlight seems to offer quite a lot of brightness (I'm in a basement though, so YMMV). I'm not a monitor snob. So I can't tell you about RGB color space accuracy, or how well the overdrive function allows for higher refresh overclocking. I'm just a gamer who cares about games looking really really nice. And this does it.
