The 27" 16:9 surface is a bit smaller than what I expected, compared with my 24" 16:10 monitor, but the DPI is noticeably higher. Color is quite good and definitely better than TN panels. Contrast is a bit better than my previous IPS monitor and light bleed is minimal.
The high refresh rate, which is a major selling point, is noticeable but not as impressive as I thought it would be. In fact, I discovered that the 144fps at 2560x1440 is a very high target for my system and I can't say I regularly achieve 100+ fps. I also haven't tested FreeSync, which would be a major advantage in lower fps situations, because my GPU does not support it.
Despite the above limitations, this monitor is definitely an upgrade and I can't find many alternatives at this price range if you care about high refresh rates, variable refresh and want an IPS panel.
In Games like Counter Strike, or even on the Desktop, 144hz makes a noticeable difference for me.
