  1. Julia

    let me tell you about this monitor I have. It’s got a pretty good screen size, just right for what I need. As for the quality, I can’t really say for sure. I haven’t noticed anything particularly good or bad about it. I use it with my Nintendo Switch, which only has HDMI output. Luckily, the monitor came with a cable that has a higher resolution, which is a nice little bonus. Unfortunately, I don’t have any other equipment that can take advantage of that technology. But I do really like the fact that the screen is nice and flat, and the whole thing has a low profile. It looks great on my desk and doesn’t take up too much space. Overall, I’m pretty happy with this monitor.

  2. elizab1422

    I got my son a new monitor for his gaming and he’s really loving it. The price was also pretty good and the quality of the monitor is top-notch. Overall, a great purchase and my son is thrilled with it.

  3. Fantabulous

    I gotta tell you about this screen I got. I actually love it! I snatched it up on sale during Prime Day for only 159.97 instead of the usual 229.97. If you’re into gaming at all, I really recommend this one. I’ve played all sorts of games on it – Ark, Final Fantasy 10/10-2,14,15, Sims 4/3 – and they all look great. Seriously, the colors on this thing are beautiful. But here’s the thing – I would never pay the full price for it. Even though I spend most of my time on my PC, I still wouldn’t drop 230 bucks for a monitor. That being said, I’ve been using this thing for like 5-10 hours a day for the last week and it’s holding up really well. Plus, it’s super easy to put together, change settings, and hook up – you just need an HDMI cable, not those old monitor plugs. It even has built-in speakers, but they’re just okay – I already have my own speakers, so I don’t really use them. Overall, I’d give it an 8 out of 10 – mostly because of the regular price and the so-so speakers. But if you can get it on sale, it’s definitely a 9.5 out of 10 in my book!

  4. BW305

    This monitor is really awesome. I use it for both gaming and work, and if your GPU is good enough, you can easily see 144hz. However, I have noticed a couple of drawbacks. Firstly, it doesn’t turn on automatically when I turn on my PC, which is a bit annoying. I have another 2 AOC monitors that pair with this one, but this is the only one that I have to physically turn on. Secondly, I can’t switch inputs once the monitor has detected the first input. This is a bit of a problem for me because sometimes I need to use my work laptop while I’m on my desktop. My desktop uses the DP input while my laptop uses the HDMI input, so I can’t switch between the two without turning off my desktop or unplugging it from the monitor. Despite these issues, I still think it’s a great monitor overall.

  5. John Matthews

    I found out that the lag on my MacBook Air while playing Valorant wasn’t actually the issue. It was just me being bad at the game. It’s honestly really disappointing and upsetting news. But, on the bright side, I can now enjoy a nice clear view of my teammates when spectating them after I get one-tapped. It’s pretty cool to see the game from their perspective, even if I’m not playing so well myself.

  6. Jeni

    I had no idea how terrible 60 hertz was until I actually tried out this monitor. It’s like night and day, the difference is so clear. I mean, I knew that higher refresh rates were supposed to be better, but I didn’t realize just how much of a difference it would make. It’s like everything is so much smoother now, and there’s no more of that annoying stuttering or lag that I used to get. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to go back to using a 60 hertz monitor again, now that I’ve experienced the awesomeness of this one. Honestly, it’s like a whole new world has opened up to me, and I’m loving every minute of it. If you haven’t tried out a high refresh rate monitor yet, you don’t know what you’re missing!

  7. Yvonne R.

    The screen is working great, but when I use it with Linux, I have to bring down the resolution to 1090×1080 to get 120HZ. Linux won’t let me choose 165HZ. On Windows, I can’t even change the refresh rate. Anyway, the screen is still good and does what I need it to do.

  8. Mike

    let me be honest with you, I’m not really good with tech stuff and all these technical terms like Hz and refresh rates just go over my head. However, I can tell you that this monitor that I got is just amazing! The picture quality is so good that I think it might even be better than my TV. I’m not kidding, it’s that good! I mean, I really don’t know how to explain it, but everything just looks so clear and sharp. I’ve been using it for a while and I can say that I’m really happy with my purchase. If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely buy this monitor without any hesitation. if you’re looking for a great monitor and don’t want to get into all the technical details, I would definitely recommend this one.

  9. Angie

    I’ve been checking out this new device and let me tell you, the picture quality is absolutely amazing! And the best part? The price is just outstanding. I mean, it’s definitely worth every penny.

    Now, the volume on this thing is like Gameboy Color level, so if you want to really hear everything, I would suggest finding a good soundbar or headset to go with it. The only thing is, the buttons are located on the back, which might take some getting used to.

    But overall, I think this is a killer product and I’m really hoping it comes with a remote. That would just make it even better. if you’re looking for something with great picture quality and a bargain price, I would definitely recommend checking this out.

  10. melissa

    I got a new monitor last year to replace my old one that stopped working. I loved the new one so much that when my other monitor stopped working, I bought another one just like it!

  11. Boss Lady

    I’m really happy because I managed to get my Xbox series s running at 144hz, which is pretty awesome. I mean, it’s not 4k or anything, but it’s still a huge improvement over the regular 60hz. I know that might not mean much to some people, but for me, it’s a big deal. I just love the smoothness and clarity of the picture now, especially when playing games that require fast reflexes. It’s like I can see everything happening even more clearly, and it just feels so much more immersive. I’m really glad I went for the series s instead of the regular Xbox because now I get to enjoy this amazing feature. I can’t wait to see what other games will look and feel like with the higher refresh rate. It’s like a whole new level of gaming, and I’m so excited about it.

  12. Kaitlyn A Wearden

    Oh man, I gotta tell ya, I am so stoked about this gaming setup I just got. I mean, seriously, it has made such a huge difference in how I play my games. And get this – it even has built-in speakers, which is so rare for monitors these days. Overall, this product is just amazing and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

  13. Bertram

    I’m doing pretty well right now. I wanted to let you know that what you’ve been doing has been really bothering me. It’s been kind of annoying and frustrating, to be honest. I’m hoping that maybe we can find a solution or come to some sort of understanding so that we can move forward in a better way. Thanks for listening, I really appreciate it.

  14. Susan

    this product is fantastic for me to use every day. It really works like a charm and is so convenient. I can’t imagine going back to my old routine without it. It’s just that good! I’m really impressed with the quality of this product and how well it does its job. It’s made my life so much easier and I’m grateful for that. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to simplify their daily routine or add a little something extra to their day. Trust me, you won’t regret it!

  15. Susan

    Alright, I understand. You’re saying that you received something and you’re currently using it. You’re satisfied with your purchase, is that correct?

  16. Isabelle Smith (verified owner)

    I gotta tell ya, my kid is totally into this thing for playing games. Like, he’s obsessed with it or something. It’s the only thing he wants to do when he’s home. I don’t really get it, but I guess it’s a big deal for kids these days. He’s always talking about how great the graphics are and how many players he can connect with online. Honestly, it’s all Greek to me, but as long as he’s happy, I’m happy. It’s nice to see him so passionate about something, you know? So yeah, my teen son is all about this thing for gaming.

  17. Steve

    this monitor is awesome! I’m really impressed with how clear and vivid everything looks on the screen. The colors are so vibrant and the resolution is top-notch. I can see every detail perfectly, whether I’m playing games or working on projects. It’s so easy on the eyes too, I can use it for hours without any discomfort. Overall, I’m really happy with this purchase and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great monitor.

  18. Dorothy

    Overall, the monitor is pretty good but there’s one issue. There’s a row of dead pixels that really stand out when I’m playing games in dark areas. It’s a bummer because it’s distracting and takes away from the overall viewing experience. Everything else seems to be working fine though.

  19. Website Customer

    Everything just OK

  20. Alyshia Massey

    I gotta tell you, this monitor is pretty awesome, but I gotta admit that the speakers aren’t the best. Luckily, I’ve got a soundbar, so I don’t really have to worry about it. But if you’re thinking about buying this monitor, just keep in mind that the speakers could use a little improvement.

  21. Sarah K.

    If you’re someone who enjoys gaming and doesn’t nitpick every little detail, then this game is perfect for you. I’ve gotta say, it’s totally worth the money. It’s great for diving into and just getting lost in for hours. if you’re looking for a fun and immersive gaming experience, then I definitely recommend giving this game a try. Trust me, you won’t regret it!

  22. Susan D Farber

    I gotta say, this monitor is really great. At first, I wasn’t sure if it was worth it, but now that I’ve had it for a bit, I’m super happy with my decision to buy it.

  23. Kristan Smith

    Hey there, can you help me out? I was wondering if you could rephrase this sentence for me. It says, “Mid speakers picture good.” I’m not quite sure what it means and I’m having a hard time understanding it. Could you put it into simpler terms?

    Okay, so it sounds like you’re trying to say something positive about mid-range speakers. Is that right? Maybe you could say something like, “Mid-range speakers have good sound quality” or “I’ve heard mid-range speakers produce really good sound.” Does that make more sense? I just want to make sure I’m understanding you correctly.

    It’s important to use clear language when trying to communicate your thoughts and ideas. If something doesn’t make sense, it’s always okay to ask for clarification. let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with!

  24. D. Weiss

    I just got these new monitors for work. I wanted to replace my old ones and use those somewhere else. The picture quality on these new ones is really good and they refresh pretty fast too. Putting them together was a piece of cake. But, there are a couple of things that I’m not too happy about. First, the power buttons are on the back and it’s a bit of a pain to reach back there and turn them off every day when I leave. Second, I’ve noticed that some of my settings go back to default when I turn the monitors off. Why does this happen? It’s really frustrating because I’m really picky about my settings and I want them to stay the way I set them.

  25. Brandon S

    I got this monitor for my work and it’s a pretty good size. It’s especially useful for me because I like to use split screen sometimes. Plus, it’s got some cool features like blue light control and other settings that make it even better.

  26. Dannah B

    I had this device that just arrived, and I think it might have been damaged during the shipping process or something because when I turned it on, the screen was all fuzzy and it took a good 3 to 5 minutes before it finally cleared up. But here’s the thing, when it was finally working, it actually looked pretty great. However, I decided to return it because I think I just got a bad one, and I’ll be ordering something different instead.

  27. Laurie A. Byrne

    This product is really good and it’s worth the money. It’s a great deal, and you won’t be disappointed. The quality is amazing, and you won’t find a better product at this price point. It’s definitely worth considering if you’re looking for something that’s both affordable and high-quality. Overall, I highly recommend this product and believe it’s a great investment.

  28. Isabelle Smith

    I gotta tell ya, my kid is totally into this thing for playing games. Like, he’s obsessed with it or something. It’s the only thing he wants to do when he’s home. I don’t really get it, but I guess it’s a big deal for kids these days. He’s always talking about how great the graphics are and how many players he can connect with online. Honestly, it’s all Greek to me, but as long as he’s happy, I’m happy. It’s nice to see him so passionate about something, you know? So yeah, my teen son is all about this thing for gaming.

  29. Marlene W

    I ordered this monitor thinking it was going to be just okay. But let me tell you, I was dead wrong! This thing has seriously upped my gaming game. I can even get all 120fps out of my Xbox now. Honestly, I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an upgrade. Trust me, you won’t regret it.

  30. Pabuckeye

    This item has a good price and doesn’t have any issues with ghosting. It also supports 1080p 120hz for the Xbox Series X and can even handle 144hz for computers.

  31. Makayla

    basically, I’ve had this thing for a long time and it’s been pretty good. Before, I used to play Xbox on a regular TV that had a refresh rate of 60 hertz, but now that I’ve switched to this one with a refresh rate of 144 hertz, it’s really improved my gaming experience A LOT. The only thing is that the speakers on it aren’t very good. Actually, I wouldn’t even say they’re decent. I think they probably had to make them cheap to keep the overall price down. I’m thinking I should get some separate speakers to use with it.

  32. Ben

    I got this monitor on a lightning deal and for the price I paid, I can tolerate the annoyances. The good things about this monitor are that it’s great for gaming with a 165hz refresh rate. Even for regular use, I can’t go back to 60hz because it hurts my eyes. The borderless frame is also a nice touch. It has one DisplayPort and three HDMI ports, one of which is 2.0 and the other two are 1.4. There were no dead pixels on mine, but I don’t know if that will change in the future. The controls for color and brightness are pretty standard and easy to use. You can also mount it using the VESA mount which is a plus. The downside is that the backlight bleed is pretty noticeable, as you can see in the photo. However, when viewing content it’s not as bad. The controls are also located on the back and they’re not the easiest to figure out. Lastly, the borderless design means that the frame is a bit fragile, but that’s neutral.

  33. M. Nol

    the monitor seems alright, but the pixels seem kinda big. But overall it’s a decent bucket.

  34. Rick K

    basically, the only thing that’s bugging me about it is that there are four black bars around the edges. It’s not a completely full screen, but I guess that’s not a big deal.

  35. Aya

    let me tell you about my monitors. When I was in college, I decided to get myself a used one. It worked pretty so a few years ago I got another one that was brand new. I wanted them to match, you know? Then I got two more for my office. My coworkers saw them and loved them, so I got them one each. But you know what’s kind of annoying about them? The red and blue light on the back of the monitor. When it’s dark in my office, it lights up everything! I have a really shiny desk too, so it looks like I have a crazy security system when my computer is asleep. It’s kind of funny, actually! Haha.

  36. Regina

    I really like it and there’s nothing about it that I don’t like

  37. David Connor

    This monitor is awesome! The graphics are top-notch and it’s super slim too

  38. Sally Baird Springer

    so I’ve been using this monitor for quite some time now and let me tell you, it’s pretty sweet. The performance is top-notch, starting at 144Hz 1ms. But if you’re using a PC like me, I’d suggest going that extra mile and plugging in the cord that enables the 165Hz. Trust me, you’ll thank me later. So far, I haven’t had any issues with this monitor. Honestly, I think it’s great.

    However, I recently upgraded my PC and unfortunately broke the power cord. I tried using tape to fix it, but it’s not working out. I was wondering if any of you guys know where I can get a good replacement cord for it? Would really appreciate the help!

  39. llemon

    I got this monitor on sale, thinking it would be a cheap one. But turns out, it’s actually pretty good and does everything it’s supposed to. I’m happy with my purchase!

  40. HonestReview4You

    This monitor is a steal for this price! It’s got 165hz in the DP and the speakers aren’t too shabby either. I think I’m gonna order another one for myself before it gets sold out. It’s just too good to pass up!

  41. Jacob

    I gotta say, my first gaming monitor has been an absolute game-changer for me! I mean, I never even knew I could fall in love with a piece of technology until now. This bad boy has made it possible for me to play my favorite games at a buttery-smooth 160FPS. Seriously, it’s been worth every single penny. I can’t imagine ever going back to my old setup now that I’ve experienced the sheer joy and smoothness of gaming on this beauty. It’s the kind of thing you don’t really appreciate until you’ve tried it for yourself. But once you do, there’s just no going back!

  42. Julia M Thomas

    my monitor had this backlight issue which was pretty bad. But then I checked online and it seems like this is something that happens quite a bit with this brand. The colors are alright, definitely better than those TN screens, but not as good as some other IPS ones I’ve seen. The refresh rate seems to be working okay, but I did notice something weird when I turned on freesync. If you’re not using this as your main monitor, then it’s not too bad for the price. But if I were you, I’d consider spending a bit more and going for something from LG or Phillips.

  43. isabel

    I just wanted to share with you guys about this amazing product that I recently came across. It’s seriously top-notch and I gotta say, I’m pretty impressed. It’s just so good that I had to use the word “excelente” to describe it.

    I mean, it really exceeded my expectations. The quality is just so high and it’s obvious that the makers put a lot of thought and effort into it. I honestly believe that it’s one of the best products out there in its category.

    Overall, I’m just really happy with my purchase and would highly recommend it to anyone who’s looking for something of this nature. if you’re in the market for a great product, I’d definitely say to give this one a shot. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

  44. Karen

    I was wondering if you could possibly help me out with something. I’m having a bit of trouble understanding this request, and I was hoping you could maybe rephrase it for me in simpler terms. I know you’re a pretty smart cookie, so I’m sure you can do it! Basically, I’m just asking if you could explain it to me as if you were talking to a friend or something. I really appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks so much!

  45. Billy B

    let me tell you about my shiny new macbook air 2020 m1. Sadly, the fonts are not exactly crystal clear and the color is a bit off. I’ve tried tinkering with the settings, but it’s been a real hassle. So if you’re thinking of using this baby for some photo-editing, you might want to think again.

  46. Pat Alexander

    this monitor has amazing picture quality! I really like the simple and sleek design too. Although, I have a bit of an issue with the speakers. Even with the volume turned all the way up, I can hardly hear my game play when I’m sitting close to the screen. It’s really frustrating because I wish I could enjoy the sound as much as I enjoy the visuals. I’m starting to regret not spending a little extra money for a monitor with better speakers. I tried to connect external speakers, but for some reason, it just won’t work. I’ve tried every possible setting on both my console and the monitor, but still no luck. I even tested the external speakers on another monitor and they worked perfectly fine. I’m not sure what else to do to try and fix the sound issue.

  47. Angel

    I gotta say, this product is amazing! I mean, seriously, it’s top-notch. It’s just one of those things that you can’t help but be impressed by. I’ve been using it for a little while now, and it has made such a big difference in my life. Honestly, I don’t know what I would do without it at this point.

    I’ve tried a lot of products in my time, but this one really stands out. It’s well-designed, intuitive, and just plain easy to use. Plus, it does exactly what it says it’s going to do – and then some. I’ve recommended it to all my friends and family, and they all love it too.

    Overall, I really can’t say enough good things about this product. If you’re on the fence about whether to buy it or not, just go for it. You won’t regret it!

  48. Jose

    I’ve been using this monitor for about a month now and I gotta say, it’s pretty good. The colors are nice and everything is super clear. And let me tell you, the refresh rate is amazing for the price. But, there’s one little thing that bugs me. The backlight kinda seeps out around the edges when things get dark, and it can be a bit distracting. But it’s not the end of the world or anything. Overall, I’d say this is a great monitor to start with if you’re on a budget.

  49. Gina J.

    Alright, so this monitor is decent, but it’s not the best in a couple of ways. The power button is kind of in a weird spot compared to other monitors I’ve used before – it’s on the bottom right behind the screen. And if you’re looking for a monitor that has speakers built in that you can actually rely on, this one’s not it. I had a hard time hearing anything at the highest volume unless I was in a super quiet room – then it was just okay.

  50. BBT4

    I gotta tell you, I don’t really know all that much about fancy monitors or TVs, but this one I got now is way better than my old one. The picture is so clear and sharp, and the colors are so bright and vivid. Only thing is, the speakers don’t sound too good, but honestly it’s not that big of a deal since I usually wear headphones while I’m playing anyway. And let me tell you, playing games at 165 HZ is a whole new ballgame. I’m totally loving it.

  51. Tonya Laughlin

    Everything’s been good with my monitor so far. I haven’t had any issues and it looks amazing when I play games on it. It’s just really nice to look at, you know?

  52. JM

    I recently decided to upgrade my work station by swapping out my 24 inch monitor for a bigger, 27 inch one. It was pretty easy to attach to my monitor arms, and I appreciated how the cable attachment options were labeled and easy to access. To be honest, I initially bought a different brand of monitor, but the mount didn’t work with my arms despite the fact that it was supposed to. So I was pretty careful when picking out this one. But luckily, it turned out to be just what I needed! The screen is really great too, which is a nice bonus.

  53. Linc Madison

    I gotta tell ya, this screen is amazing! The picture is so clear and the quality is top-notch, especially for the price. I liked it so much that I actually bought two of them to use as dual monitors and let me tell you, they are awesome!

  54. Marialeigh

    so I got myself a couple of these bad boys for my setup. I wanted to use them as dual monitors for my computer and hook up my Xbox to them too. Man, let me tell you, the picture quality and refresh rate are top-notch. Couldn’t be happier with how everything looks and runs. These babies are worth every penny.

  55. Jennifer Heflin

    I had to run out and grab a new display port cable ’cause the one that came with my laptop was a total dud. Super frustrating, you know? But I gotta say, once I got the new one hooked up, the picture quality is pretty top-notch. at least there’s that.

  56. Karyn Durham

    from my experience, the monitor seems pretty good overall. The only issue I seem to have is with the volume. It’s really quiet, which is a bit of a bummer. See, I was thinking of using it as my 2nd monitor and didn’t really need headphones or another speaker. But now, it seems like I might have to buy a speaker for it to get the sound I want.

    my new monitor came in a week earlier than I thought it would, and that was awesome! When I turned it on, I immediately noticed how clear and vibrant the display was. There were no visual issues or anything like that, which was a relief. Plus, the refresh rate is crazy smooth at 165hz, which is a huge step up from my old 75hz monitor. I was also relieved to see that there were no dead pixels or any other problems like that. For all of these reasons, I definitely think the price of this monitor is worth it. Overall, I’d say it’s a really damn good monitor!

    I got this product because I wanted to be able to run my PS5 on 120 frames. I made sure to get a fancy 2.1 HDMI cable and I thought everything was good to go. But, for some reason, my console is still only playing at 60Hz. It’s really frustrating because I spent a lot of money on this setup and I feel like I’m not getting the full experience. I’ve tried a few things to fix it, but nothing seems to be working. I’m really hoping there’s a solution out there because I want to be able to play my games the way they were meant to be played.

    I heard that your monitor isn’t working too well. The colors are all messed up and everything looks dull, even when you have it set to fps. Plus, there aren’t too many options to change things around. Sounds like a real bummer. Have you tried adjusting anything or is it just totally unfixable?

    Oh man, I am so stoked right now! I’ve had some pricey monitors in the past, but I never really cared about having a higher framerate. But let me tell you, I was dead wrong! I’ve been gaming since the 70’s with my Magnavox Odyssey and Atari 2600, and this thing has taken my FPS games like Insurgency and Hell Let Loose to a whole new level. I was already killin’ it on the leaderboards, but now my response time is lightning fast. And not only that, my eyes don’t get as tired, even after staring at the screen for 24 hours straight! Plus, the colors are super vivid right out of the box, and it even works great for photo editing. I threw a bias light behind it, which makes the blacks way darker and eliminates eye strain at night or when the screen changes from light to dark. I got this one on sale and it was a total no-brainer. I actually had the 25″ version before, but I wound up giving it to my son for his dorm room. It only had one stuck pixel in the middle of the screen, but it doesn’t really bug me too much. I mean, I’ve got bigger fish to fry, like the dead ant that’s stuck behind my laptop screen, haha! But seriously, Viotek monitors are awesome quality. The DP cable it comes with is legit, and it automatically synced up to 165Hz on my Win 10 and Nvidia set-up. I have the Freesync setting on and there’s some sharpening thing that I turned on too, and it made a huge difference in how Hell Let Loose looked. It was kind of soft at first, but then BAM, it was perfect. I’m telling you, I HIGHLY recommend this monitor!

    I gotta say, the panel is really great. I haven’t had any issues with it at all. It’s been smooth sailing so far.

    If you’re looking for something that’s affordable and does the job, this one’s for you. The colors are good enough. When viewing a black screen, the backlight may bleed through a bit, but it’s not too bad. The screen is really thin though. Just a heads up, this doesn’t have a USB port. The speakers are not amazing, but if you want to boost the sound, you could plug in a 3.5mm audio cable. I must say that the hardware that comes with it is quite delicate. You may want to be careful when using the screwdriver provided. All in all, I’m happy with the purchase and I’d recommend it to anyone on a tight budget.

    if you’re having trouble getting your Xbox to go over 60Hz with the HDMI 2.0 plug, I’ve got a solution for you. All you have to do is go into your console settings, then head to TV & display options, and finally Video fidelity & overscan. Once you’re there, change your overrides to HDMI and you’ll see a bunch of different resolutions available, including up to 120Hz. It’s a pretty simple fix, but hopefully it helps you out!

    I just wanted to share my experience with this amazing monitor I got recently. It’s the one in the middle and let me tell you, the quality is just top-notch. I mean, it’s seriously impressive! I snagged it on sale for just $115, so if you’re thinking about getting one, I’d definitely recommend waiting for it to go on sale. Trust me, it’s worth the wait.

  65. Hillary

    I recently bought this monitor and I gotta say, it’s pretty good for the price. The only downside is that the speakers aren’t that great. If they were better, I’d give it a perfect rating without hesitation.

    I recently picked up this monitor for my Xbox setup and let me tell you, it’s awesome. It can hit 120 fps with the Xbox series s, which is what I have, but I do wanna give a heads up that in order to get that 120 HZ, you’ll need to buy a separate HDMI 2.1 and plug it into the HDMI 2.0 port on the back of the monitor. Then, you’ll have to go to your Xbox settings, select video fidelity and overscan, and choose the HDMI override option.

    But, back to the monitor itself. The colors really pop and it runs super smoothly. Plus, there aren’t any dead pixels that I’ve noticed. The only downside is that the built-in speakers don’t sound great, but I’m not too worried about that since I have a headset on the way. If you’re thinking about getting this monitor, I’d recommend grabbing separate speakers or a headset.

    Overall, it’s a really good size- 27 inches- and the stand is super sturdy and easy to put together. I’m really happy with this purchase and would definitely recommend it, although I would suggest waiting for a sale if you can. If I ever need a second monitor, I’d definitely buy this one again.

    I’m really impressed with how accurate the colors are on this new monitor! Compared to my old 24-inch Acer with 1080p resolution, this is a game-changer. The only thing is, I’m still getting used to all the extra screen space. It’s definitely a good thing, but it’s taking a little while to adjust. The monitor itself is pretty heavy, which surprised me since my old one was so light. I think a big part of the weight comes from the built-in speakers, but I don’t really plan on using them anyway. All in all, I’m really happy with this purchase and excited to see how it improves my work and entertainment experiences.

    The screen looks really nice and I’m happy with how good it is

  69. SharonKay

    Hey there, if you’re a fan of next Gen consoles like me, I did some digging and found out that they can run at a smooth 120fps. And let me tell you, this monitor I came across is an absolute game-changer for gaming. I personally recommend it 100%.

  70. Brianna Molzan

    I don’t really play games all that much. I mostly use this monitor to watch anime, 1080p movies, and YouTube videos. You know, general stuff like that. But I gotta say, this monitor looks absolutely fantastic! It’s one of the best displays I’ve ever seen. The only downside is that sometimes the blacks can be a little too dark in darker scenes. But maybe that’s just because I haven’t messed around with the settings enough yet. Overall though, I really love this monitor. It’s been over a year since I got it and I haven’t had a single issue with it. In fact, I’m even thinking about getting another one to replace my smaller AOC monitor. Oh, and just a little update, I actually did end up playing around with the settings a bit more and found the “back light” option. And let me tell you, it made a world of difference! This is definitely a five-star monitor for my needs.

  71. FWTX

    this monitor is really cool! I used to have a 24-inch monitor, but this one is way better. My old one had a TN panel, but I’m really liking the IPS on this one. Oh, and I just wanted to point out that HDMI 1 can go up to 165Hz and so can the DisplayPort. Plus, it’s super thin!

  72. A. G.

    let me tell you something. This big monitor I’ve got here, it sure does give off a lot of heat. But boy, does it make up for it with a picture that is just so bright and clear. I mean, I could stare at it all day and not get tired of it. It definitely makes doing work and watching movies a lot more enjoyable. Sure, I could opt for a smaller monitor that doesn’t give off as much heat, but I think the benefits of having this big one outweigh the drawbacks. Overall, I’m pretty darn happy with my decision to go big with my monitor.

  73. Edgar placencia

    I’m really happy with what I’m seeing so far! It’s going great and I’d be super stoked if I can get it at a good price.

  74. lance ledford

    the screens are definitely worth the money, but the speakers are just plain awful. I mean, you’re better off just using headphones or investing in separate speakers if you want decent sound quality. Overall, though, if you’re willing to overlook the audio situation, it’s a pretty good deal.

  75. Pamela Ampel Lapidus

    Hey there, so I gotta tell you, I was really bummed out this Christmas morning because when I went to put together the monitor for my 12-year-old son, I realized that some of the parts were missing. It was a real bummer because I was really excited for him to have it all set up and ready to go. I mean, I know he’s not the most patient kid in the world, so I was really looking forward to seeing the look on his face when he saw it all put together. But unfortunately, it just didn’t work out that way. Hopefully, I can get those missing pieces soon so that we can finally get it all set up and ready to go for him. Fingers crossed!
