My son just bought the 27" version of this from Amazon with the 15 dollar coupon. We just got it today and I am stunned at how good the picture is and how nice it looks at 144Hz with GSync enabled (now that Nvidia supports FreeSync) We both kept commenting on how nice the colors looked and how good the black levels were (compared to his previous monitor)

Now, take that for what its worth because I am by no means an expert on monitors but He has it sitting next to the IPS monitor I bought him for christmas last year and this monitor makes his old IPS look like TRASH lol.

Well it's a VA panel so colors and black colors especially are vibrant. The problem with VA is that it suffers from ghosting or input lag, but it varies amongst different monitors.

I got this monitor about 3 weeks ago and it unfortunately came with a dead pixel. For my use (mostly web browsing and games) I don't notice it and decided not to return it. The colors are meh. Washed out but with some tuning and digital vibrance it looks okay. The 144hz is very nice. For this price, if you don't get a faulty monitor, I'd say it's a pretty good deal.

For what is worth we have not noticed any ghosting or input lag. No dead pixels either. I honestly was not expecting much and am not biased in any way and I am honestly impressed at this point. I even tried to talk him into the Dell 27" TN 144hz monitor on amazon for 179 right now but he insisted on the curved display.

Link to the dell for anyone interested https://www.amazon.com/Dell-D2719HGF-Response-Speakers-FreeSync/dp/B07J4SXNQ5/ref=sr_1_1?fst=as%3Aof... [amazon.com]

This is the one we got, I think its the same just 27" https://www.amazon.com/Sceptre-Ed...3-fkmrnull

As I said, it varies among monitors, glad he's enjoying the monitor though Smilie

Not mentioned in the description but these are 1080p curved VA monitors. Colors can be muted compared to IPS which is where the curve comes in to help color viewing. Not a bad deal but personally I'm waiting for a 1440p 144Hz deal instead as I missed out on the 27" Dell.

I see the four screws from the rear view. So I'm going to say yes.
