🤔🤔🤔 interesting take there.

I would note that this would be at the top of my list if it wasn't for the BGR subpixel layout
Really great monitor for gaming, and the KVM switch's usefulness cannot be overstated if you've got a 2-device setup. Ton of ports. The BGR layout can definitely be annoying until you've made some adjustments - something you'll probably be doing A LOT if you're as anal about color as me.

On that front, I was underwhelmed with it for color accuracy. I purchased an Asus Designo monitor originally and was sincerely disappointed with it. I checked rtings before making another mistake, and purchased what they had recommended (this monitor) for media creation. It's... good but not great. Don't get me wrong, it's no slouch, but it's definitely not the gold standard when it comes to color reproduction. Very vibrant, very deep range, but both of those things seem to spite it sometimes. I've spent too much time in the settings already.

All of that being said... I am still considering picking up a second one. However, this monitor is typically $319-$329. You aren't saving much.
Yes it is lmao

Yeup… QHD is 2560x1440p…. Which is the standard res for 2k. Some monitors do a wider range like 3500ishx1440p which is considered WQHD or wide QHD

If you're real technical about it, then yes, but it's trivial.

This is a really good monitor. If you have the hardware to push the frame rate you'll be happy with it

I really have no idea why someone would think that's a good idea.

My take on it... If you're gaming you won't notice. If you're staring at text (browsing, coding, etc) you _might_ notice. I know I would.
