Photo overview

The monitor is enclosed in a robust package, with its specifications detailed on the box's exterior. To ensure the monitor's protection against potential damage during transit, it's cushioned within dense polystyrene layers and supplemented with extra foam.


Setting up the monitor is straightforward. Users can attach the V-shaped base to the stand's neck using a single thumbscrew. The stand's neck then connects to the monitor through a tool-free mechanism.


The package contains essential accessories including two power cords, an HDMI cable, a DisplayPort cable, and a user manual. The stand, apart from its practical design which lends a quality aspect to the monitor, allows tilt and swivel modifications, granting users flexibility in adjusting their viewing angles. In terms of connectivity, the monitor features four USB-A ports and one USB-C port.


An innovative feature in this model is the integration of Wi-Fi antennae within the stand, connected via two slender coax cables to the PC's coaxial connections. This integration is uncommon and offers a novel approach to monitor design. Additionally, the package provides HDMI and DisplayPort cables along with an IEC cord for the device's internal power supply. The assembly of the stand and base is secure, with a bolt ensuring the panel's stability.


The on-screen display (OSD) control mechanism is located on the monitor's right bezel. A joystick interface simplifies navigation across the OSD options.


Adjacent buttons offer quick access to the OSD's various sections or permit the panel to be turned off. This monitor supports Adaptive-Sync, which is compatible with both Nvidia and AMD platforms. A notable feature is its 165 Hz refresh rate, achieved natively without the need for overclocking.


Motion blur reduction is enabled through MPRT or a backlight strobe. Unlike some models, this monitor omits features like aiming points, timers, frame counters, and LED illumination. Still, it contains distinct attributes that differentiate it in the market.
