Incredible monitor, but awful inbuilt speakers.
on 15 July 2018
This monitor is absolutely amazing in terms of display - the screen is very clear, colours are vibrant, the curve is great and much deeper than expected and the response time is fantastic for games such as Overwatch etc (especially with the low input lag). However, the main problem I have found is that the in-built speakers are absolutely terrible - they sound very tinny and horrible and even when not listening to music, just everyday things are pretty awful to listen to. I didn't expect great speakers as they are just inbuilt ones and the screen is the main thing, but anything could have been better than these speakers! I will probably buy some external ones to make up for it.
Also, I found that if I used HDMI rather than the DisplayPort input, there was noticeably more input lag and i'm unsure as to whether this is because of the monitor, the nature of HDMI or my HDMI cable being really old, but if you're planning to use HDMI with this monitor for gaming, I would recommend DisplayPort instead (just from my experience). This is fine because the monitor comes with a DisplayPort cable so not really an issue.
Overall, I am super impressed with this monitor (besides the speakers) and would highly recommend, especially given its on sale for £150 off.
