abunda_amazon_reviews So for starters, this is a very nice entry to the gaming monitor world. Lets go over some pros and cons, PROS: ~144hz + Grey to grey time is great. (When running blur busters, i had practically no ghosting.) ~The panel itself is very nice for VA. The contrast + viewing angles are near IPS standard (very good, much better than my TN), and the blacks are pretty dark. ~Being a 1ms monitor as well as a VA panel, This outperforms both IPS (slower) and TN (less vivid picture quality/ viewing angles) while staying within this price range. ~The pannel is also freesync, so that is a plus as well for AMD users. (Being equipped with only nvidia gpu's at the time, i am unable to give feedback on its performance.) CONS: ~With a resolution of only 1920 x 1080, at 27" the pixels are a bit more noticeable than a 24", but definitely NOT a deal breaker. (keep reading for more info) This does make higher application antialiasing a little more important. ~Not having a fully adjustable stand is a bit annoying. (Its TILT up and down is adjustable... but nothing else.) ~Also not a VESA stand to fix the last issue. (it is not a bad stand, just not adjustable) ~I have a little backlight light bleed on the panel i received. However it is pretty much unnoticeable in day to day use. Tips/ help: ~The older generation of this model (g27c) had some issues with having the panel display blue artifacting. I can confirm as of now, this issue seems to have been fixed with the upgrade to the new g27c2. As well as a faster response time, Gen 2 is much better than its predecessor. (dont worry too much about reviews pertaining to the older model) ~27" 1920x1080 is not bad at all. (Unlike what some might say.) Unless you are sitting closer than 2 feet-ish, the PPI is not really that noticable. ~A close competitor to this monitor would be the VIOTEK GN32C, while being close in appearance, You may think, "oh nice, this one is 5" larger." While this is true, In my experience, at 32" 1080p, The PPI (pixels per inch) become much more noticeable. To simulate how this feels on your current monitor, open a game and drop the resolution down one or two options. (assuming you have a 20"- 24" 1080p monitor) This might give you a better idea of what to expect at 32 in. (Not being 100% accurate) You can use higher antialiasing to counter some of the effect, but it only works so much to fix the jagged edges due to the pixels being more spaced apart. ~A LOT of people say in their reviews that Grey to Grey time doesn't matter at all. I disagree, while it is not a deal breaker, It does make a bit of difference. Blur trails or "ghosting" behind moving objects becomes slightly less noticable as the response time gets smaller. This is really only important for fast paced fps games. In conclusion, would I recommend this monitor to the every day user/ gamer? Yes, I definitely would! I find that it falls between great performance for gaming and quality for everyday use, without stressing your pc. (In comparison to the more intensive 1440p) I have very few bad things to say about the monitor. Most of which can be looked over with no problem at all. With this monitor being so new, I understand proper reviews are scarce. so I hope my review covers any questions you have.

The colors are great, definitely better than my old TN panel and the response time is very fast which made it an easy choice to switch from the old TN to this new VA panel.

Mainly for university homework and gaming. The aesthetic of this monitor is great and it gives an advantage of smoother motion for gaming. I have already put at least 100 hours into Rocket League since I bought this monitor and I noticed a big improvement in reaction time because of how much more information 144hz provides. Pros: • Very cheap. $239.33 is super affordable when compared to any other curved high refresh rate monitor • 144hz is great for gaming • VA color vs any TN panel. It looks as good as my IPS panel, with some colors being more saturated. It does not appear more accurate, just more vivid. • Matte finish on screen. My glossy screen is hard to use when it's bright out, but this is typically easy to see in bright conditions. • DisplayPort is a must these days because it is so much more powerful than DVI or HDMI. • Design is great. It has thin borders and a solid plastic piece on the bottom where the logo is and it matches my other monitor perfectly. • The joystick works well enough for menu navigation. The menu always pops up if I turn the monitor off by long pressing the joystick button. • The curve is hard to notice when using the monitor and harder to notice after using it for over a month. Cons: • Brightness! It is not a bright monitor when you have the response time settings turned up to Normal or Extreme. This is not an issue if you don't mind the pixel blur. I don't have issues with this because the stock brightness matches my Acer H236HL and this monitor's response time is still better. • VESA Mount. The mounting option is pretty awful if you don't have extra pieces of hardware lying around. The holes for the vesa mount are recessed and the screws that came with the monitor are not nearly long enough to get past the exterior casing and through a VESA mounting plate. I used 12mm spacers along with some extra long bolts (about 3cm but I think 2cm would have worked better) that didn't quite fit but get the job done. (Images provided) • Stuck/dead pixels. I have 5 stuck subpixels that just display green (4) and blue (1) all the time. 4 are in a line on the left and one is on the other side. I also have two spots on the screen that have either dim pixels or just some display manufacturing issue. One spot is in the middle on the far left, and it looks like a large dust spot but can't be wiped away, and the other is in the middle on the top edge. They aren't too distracting but it always looks like something is on the screen and it's visible in most program UI elements. (Images provided) • VA subpixel arrangement is strange and causes many things to look aliased. At first it is jarring, but over time you grow used to it. Text will look blurry right away, but your eyes can adapt rather quickly. Something about the VA panel also causes the pixels at the far edges to be hard to see. (Images provided) • Blue LED on bottom right corner. It's annoying because it projected 10 feet across my room to the other wall. A small piece of electrical tape alleviated the issue, but I know other monitors (HP Omen specifically) will allow you to turn stuff like that off. It's a great monitor for the price and even with the stuck green pixels I am enjoying using it every single day. Although I wish they weren't there, they are only visible in dark scenes.;;Reviewed in the United States on October 28, 2018;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Good monitor with small imperfections;;Kim W

CONS: ~With a resolution of only 1920 x 1080, at 27" the pixels are a bit more noticeable than a 24", but definitely NOT a deal breaker. (keep reading for more info) This does make higher application antialiasing a little more important. ~Not having a fully adjustable stand is a bit annoying. (Its TILT up and down is adjustable... but nothing else.) ~Also not a VESA stand to fix the last issue. (it is not a bad stand, just not adjustable) ~I have a little backlight light bleed on the panel i received. However it is pretty much unnoticeable in day to day use. Tips/ help: ~The older generation of this model (g27c) had some issues with having the panel display blue artifacting. I can confirm as of now, this issue seems to have been fixed with the upgrade to the new g27c2. As well as a faster response time, Gen 2 is much better than its predecessor. (dont worry too much about reviews pertaining to the older model) ~27" 1920x1080 is not bad at all. (Unlike what some might say.) Unless you are sitting closer than 2 feet-ish, the PPI is not really that noticable. ~A close competitor to this monitor would be the VIOTEK GN32C, while being close in appearance, You may think, "oh nice, this one is 5" larger." While this is true, In my experience, at 32" 1080p, The PPI (pixels per inch) become much more noticeable. To simulate how this feels on your current monitor, open a game and drop the resolution down one or two options. (assuming you have a 20"- 24" 1080p monitor) This might give you a better idea of what to expect at 32 in. (Not being 100% accurate) You can use higher antialiasing to counter some of the effect, but it only works so much to fix the jagged edges due to the pixels being more spaced apart. ~A LOT of people say in their reviews that Grey to Grey time doesn't matter at all. I disagree, while it is not a deal breaker, It does make a bit of difference. Blur trails or "ghosting" behind moving objects becomes slightly less noticable as the response time gets smaller. This is really only important for fast paced fps games. In conclusion, would I recommend this monitor to the every day user/ gamer? Yes, I definitely would! I find that it falls between great performance for gaming and quality for everyday use, without stressing your pc. (In comparison to the more intensive 1440p) I have very few bad things to say about the monitor. Most of which can be looked over with no problem at all. With this monitor being so new, I understand proper reviews are scarce. so I hope my review covers any questions you have. If not, post a question and ill try to help out as best as I can.

Great product!!
This monitor does what it is supposed to do. 144 hz is soo nice. Screen looks great, picture is crisp. It has all the right curves. I have already recommended it to a few friends. Now i am recommending it to you.

I'm getting used to it
When I first got this monitor I did not like it. The first few days I didn't have much time to figure things out so I was unhappy with the image quality and color. After spending some time trying different options I found a combination of settings that made everything much better for me. I'm happy as a clam now, this is much better than my old TN panel. I really notice a difference watching my HD video collection. Here are the settings that work best for me if that helps anyone out: refresh rate = 144hz , black tuner = 10 , response time = fastest , anti motion blur = on , image enhancement = medium , contrast = 67 or higher , sharpness = 0 , and for me i like color temp = warm .

Great Monitor (1440p 32 Inch Optix AG32CQ)
Got the 1440p 32 inch version (Optix AG32CQ) there inst much reviews on this one so I thought this would be helpful for anyone interested in the same version. The monitor is awesome so far. I love the size and the curve really gives you a nice feel. The colors are great, definitely better than my old TN panel and the response time is very fast which made it an easy choice to switch from the old TN to this new VA panel. I play shooters, RPG's, strategies, simulators, you name it and this thing is epic for all of them. I sit about an arm and half length away from this beast and everything is really immersive. I upgraded from a 27 inch 1440p TN panel Acer, I just felt everything was two small on the 27inch so this panel works great for me.

Good monitor with small imperfections
I've been using this monitor for two months now. Mainly for university homework and gaming. The aesthetic of this monitor is great and it gives an advantage of smoother motion for gaming. I have already put at least 100 hours into Rocket League since I bought this monitor and I noticed a big improvement in reaction time because of how much more information 144hz provides. Pros: • Very cheap. $239.33 is super affordable when compared to any other curved high refresh rate monitor • 144hz is great for gaming • VA color vs any TN panel. It looks as good as my IPS panel, with some colors being more saturated. It does not appear more accurate, just more vivid. • Matte finish on screen. My glossy screen is hard to use when it's bright out, but this is typically easy to see in bright conditions. • DisplayPort is a must these days because it is so much more powerful than DVI or HDMI. • Design is great. It has thin borders and a solid plastic piece on the bottom where the logo is and it matches my other monitor perfectly. • The joystick works well enough for menu navigation. The menu always pops up if I turn the monitor off by long pressing the joystick button. • The curve is hard to notice when using the monitor and harder to notice after using it for over a month. Cons: • Brightness! It is not a bright monitor when you have the response time settings turned up to Normal or Extreme. This is not an issue if you don't mind the pixel blur. I don't have issues with this because the stock brightness matches my Acer H236HL and this monitor's response time is still better. • VESA Mount. The mounting option is pretty awful if you don't have extra pieces of hardware lying around. The holes for the vesa mount are recessed and the screws that came with the monitor are not nearly long enough to get past the exterior casing and through a VESA mounting plate. I used 12mm spacers along with some extra long bolts (about 3cm but I think 2cm would have worked better) that didn't quite fit but get the job done. (Images provided) • Stuck/dead pixels. I have 5 stuck subpixels that just display green (4) and blue (1) all the time. 4 are in a line on the left and one is on the other side. I also have two spots on the screen that have either dim pixels or just some display manufacturing issue. One spot is in the middle on the far left, and it looks like a large dust spot but can't be wiped away, and the other is in the middle on the top edge. They aren't too distracting but it always looks like something is on the screen and it's visible in most program UI elements. (Images provided) • VA subpixel arrangement is strange and causes many things to look aliased. At first it is jarring, but over time you grow used to it. Text will look blurry right away, but your eyes can adapt rather quickly. Something about the VA panel also causes the pixels at the far edges to be hard to see. (Images provided) • Blue LED on bottom right corner. It's annoying because it projected 10 feet across my room to the other wall. A small piece of electrical tape alleviated the issue, but I know other monitors (HP Omen specifically) will allow you to turn stuff like that off. It's a great monitor for the price and even with the stuck green pixels I am enjoying using it every single day. Although I wish they weren't there, they are only visible in dark scenes.
