A Closer Look

The monitor may be affordable for its size and specifications, but it certainly still looks the part of a high-end monitor. It has a very small bezel, which is fantastic for immersion. Of course, it’s also great for those rocking more than one display; triple display surround anyone? There’s a little bit of red trim on the bottom I could do without, but it’s hardly a deal-breaker.

Around the back, things are pretty neat and tidy. You can see it’s a pretty cheap plastic shell, but it’s all it really needs. It’s also unlikely you’ll be looking at this side of the screen very often. There’s some red plastic highlights to liven it up a bit, but again, I don’t even think they’re needed. There’s a tiny air vent in the upper section to keep it cool, but that’s about it really.

The stand is pretty straight forward, with a metal interior, but a plastic outer shall that matches up with the monitor. You’ll find more of those red highlights too, matching up with the theme of the panel. It does look good, black and red are a very “gamer” look, but I think an all-black design would look just as good, if not better.

It offers a basic tilt, but otherwise, there’s no other adjustment. The height is fixed, but with it being a bigger panel, it’s honestly set to a perfect height already. As I said, they’ve cut a few QOL features to keep the cost tight on such a large monitor; which I’m absolutely fine with, as there are other models out there for those that want those premium features (and the price to match).

Power comes from a standard connector, so no need to deal with a big power pack or custom adaptor should you misplace the cable.

As for the display inputs, you’ll find a pair of HDMI ports and a DisplayPort. There’s a headphone jack for audio passthrough from the HDMI. However, the monitor has no speakers of its own.
