Here is a short review. So this monitor has very few reviews but I decided to pull the trigger. I have only had the monitor for a few days but So far so good. There is another 27inch monitor from sceptre that appears to be basically the same monitor just slightly larger screen size. There are several reviews on that product if you are curious.

Monitor came nicely packaged. As others have stated it does need a little messing around with the setting to get the picture just right. I found that the gamma needed to be turned up on mine by one click think I have 2.4. I would like to be able to turn the brightness down some but on my black level test the setting of level 50 is the lowest you can go and still view all the black levels. So you do get a slightly washed out appearance with some images but it gets better if you turn the brightness down and sacarfice the black level.

I play league of legends and on my gaming laptop with nvidia 1050 via hdmi to hdmi I was able to achieve near the 144 fps. I did have to lower my in game settings to get it but that must be because my gpu has reached its limits. I wanted to share this because there are many 144hz monitors in this price range but majority only support 144hz via display port. My laptop only had hdmi and usb 3.0 like many consumer grade laptops and desktops. You can buy a converter but that causes you to use up a usb 3.0 port as well as your hdmi port.

I am not an expert by any means but the build quality seems pretty decent. I am not sure what type of lcd pannel is used. On the other 27inch sceptre stated it is a VA for this one I cannot find any info. Either wait it doesn’t really matter because if your buying this it is for gaming so you are sacarficing viewing angle and color accuracy for reduced input lag and faster refresh rates.

I think it is definitely worth the buy at under $200 as long as it stands the test of time.

This review is my own personal opinion. I paid for this product with my own hard earned money.

I absolutely love this monitor! It is a premium product with out the premium price! 180$?! It’s an absolute steal, the stand is solid, and the panel is flawless. Mine came with a display port cable as well as all the hardware and tools... yes I said tools! This thing comes with a freaking screw driver to assemble it with!
Definitely buy one if you interested in 144hz gaming!
(No this is not a paid review)

This is a gorgeous 144hz monitor which is $50+ cheaper than anything you'll find elsewhere. The curved display takes some getting used to at first but now the screen looks completely natural to me. The speakers on the monitor are decently loud and are actually louder than the speakers on my last monitor. 144hz is buttery smooth and you can notice the difference just by moving the cursor across the screen. One thing of note is that when I first hooked the monitor all up the refresh rate was still at 60hz and I had to manually go into advanced display settings in Windows and set it to 144hz, so if you get this monitor and don't notice a difference right away check that it's actually set to the highest it can be.

*new review 3/16/19* After building a new Ryzen machine, it seems the flickering is gone. I have no idea what the cause was. I have a feeling it was something to do with my older z77 build. Everything is butter smooth on my new build, no more flickering lines when scrolling through webpages and no more display port flickering. 5 Stars from me.

Wife purchased for me for Christmas. Let me tell you something. I have never used Freesync. I have never used 144hz. I played for 2 hours on CS:GO before I realized Freesync was not enabled, and had to be enabled in the monitor settings. Once I enabled Freesync on the monitor, Radeon drivers immediately detected Freesync, the screen flashed, and before my eyes OH MY SDLKFHSDF. Freesync is amazing as long as you are in the 48hz - 144hz range. Seriously. I came from a 23" TN panel aaaaaaaand the colors blows it away. This VA panel has viewing angles and colors that rival my ASUS IPS panel in my daughters room.

I did try lowering the bottom end of the Freesync range with CRU. I did successfully get to 40hz on the desktop, and for about 20 minutes in game. Then my Radeon driver crashed, so it's probably safe to say I could get 42hz out of it without issue, but I just put it back.

I do have a gripe though. I am on DP, and I am noticing a slight flicker as I scroll through webpages on rows of text. It's like a solid line slashes through the middle of text. Now this could be ghosting or something to do with the refresh rate and I am going to knock a star off. But, for the money, this monitor is mint. I will be ordering a second as well.

Title says it all, I have mine running at 2k upscaled right now and it looks fantastic. I never thought that the whole FreeSync thing was a big deal but it makes a HUGE difference in games that don't always hit the 144hz mark, really smoothes out the image. As far as I'm concerned I'll definitely be buying another one soon.

I got this monitor after returning an MSI Optix monitor for the fact that it had so much flashlighting on the the edges all the way around that I couldn't even play anything on it. The price for this 144hz curved 1080p monitor is insane and while you may be afraid to try a lesser known brand, trust me it's fantastic. the blacks are darker and deeper than my benq and there is virtually no flashlighting issues. 144hz looks gorgeous and rts mode makes the picture really pop so i can see everything ( i play starcraft 2). Overall, great, no complaints, definitely recommend

Great monitor for the price right when I plugged in the display port it came with I was off playing at 144hz with great picture monitor even has a tiny speaker but it’s not good what so ever so don’t buy this if you don’t have a speaker for your desktop when I turned it on the picture was pretty foggy compared to my 60 hz lg monitor but when I turned the pc to 144hz the colors looked better and it was smooth as butter for web browsing gaming and that 1ms response times is really great overall a good monitor

I think this monitor is fantastic for the price. It's hard to find something that's 1920x1080 AND 144hz for this price. The size is perfect for this resolution also. Very clear picture. Some were complaining about the colors being off but I think they look nice, perhaps a bit warmer than other monitors. There is one dead pixel towards the top of the screen, but its so small that it doesn't bother me at all. I hardly notice it unless im actively looking for it. Im very happy with this purchase.

Looks great functions great, couldn't be more pleased for the money. Some reviews talked about dead pixels and cracked screens, but mine is in perfect condition and is true 144hz. One thing I will say, don't waste your time with the included screw driver. Kind of them to include it but get something a little heftier. Included DP cable works nicely though.

I love the smoothness this monitor brings. It feels sturdy enough, it is very easy to assemble especially with the included screwdriver, and the bezels are much slimmer than my old 60hz monitor.

PROS:
VERY CHEAP
144hz
Comes with required cables
Comes with screwdriver

CONS:
Colors are meh, and took a lot of fiddling with settings for me to not notice issues.
Backlight-80
Brightness-50
Contrast-50
Red-45
Green-43
Blue-50
Gamma-2.4

These are by no means any professional color calibration, they're just what I've found to be acceptable for my use.

I had an issue with coronas/inverse ghosting when I first got the monitor, at this point I don't even notice anymore unless I am specifically looking for them. I don't believe it affects my gameplay, and hey, it's a small price to pay for such a low-cost monitor.

Potential issue:
For some reason after I got this monitor, tabbing in and out of certain games, ex. Overwatch gave me a lot more issues while other games were almost immediate. Overwatch for instance takes a full few seconds of black screen and it flashes my 2nd monitor, while games like Fortnite or Team Fortress 2 are just a little blip as I tab back in. This could just be my system though, so your mileage may vary.
