Thanks to its lack of G-Sync, this display has an impressively low price. You’re still paying a premium over 144Hz displays, but here you’re getting more for your money to go with that faster refresh rate.
For a start, you get a more premium design and build than an entry-level gaming display. The sturdy stand and base are metal, and offer a range of adjustments, while the display itself has a real solidness to it. The carry handle is also a nice touch.
There are several extras, too. On the side of the display there are a couple of USB 3.0 ports, headphone and microphone jacks, and a flip-down headphone stand. Round the back, you also get two more USB 3.0 ports, two HDMI ports, and a DisplayPort. You even get a pair of speakers.
All this and the display delivers when it comes to performance, too. Combine this display with an AMD graphics card to enable Freesync, and you have a smooth and responsive gaming experience. Image quality is also very good. Contrast is a touch low, but otherwise it is right up there with the rest of the displays in this test.
The combination of value, extra features, and a premium build makes this a compelling option.
