I would imagine this would be a good monitor for an Xbox One X.

I would imagine this would be a good monitor for an Xbox One X.


It only supports freesync over DP, not over HDMI which the Xbox One X requires. It should have no issue playing games at 1440p though.

I have this monitor and it's well worth the money, I am considering getting a second!

How far away do you sit from the monitor? I want this but i think it might be a tad bit big for my setup.

It's at the back of my computer desk, probably about 70cm away. It fills my vision perfectly and great for watching movies as it's 16:9.

I'm not too familiar with Freesync, but does it not work over an HDMI to DVI convertor?

In this case it would be a HDMI to DP convertor and no it doesn't work over that as far as I know. Would be happy to be proved wrong though!

Also the monitor only supports Freesync at over 40fps so not massively useful for most games.

I see the comments re the Xbox. Would this be any use for my sons bedroom plugged up to an xbox one x? What is free sync?

It doesn't have speakers and is only 1440p, personally you would be better with a 4k TV.

Freesync is a feature that stops screen tearing. If a screen is 60Hz (which is standard) then it will show a new image 60 times a second. This is fine if the connected device is sending 60 frames a second but consoles often don't. So what the screen shows might be a portion of two different frames causing a noticeable horizontal tear across the screen.

That's great, thanks for the help.
Decent price, I have one but for those who are fussy when it comes to dead pixels and the like you're best off looking through the older deal comments on here and the extensive OCUK thread. I'm happy with mine but you can tell its a budget screen and the viewing angles aren't the best with lots of inverting when it comes to vertical - its more like a high end TN panel in that respect.
Is this good for gaming as well?
Too big for qhd, alright if you sit a long way away though
I have one. It is great for the price. I game with a R9 Nano. Looks very good. You really need a higher end video card to hit 2560x1440 at 75hz. Maybe lowest R9 290(x)/390, better RX 480/580, Nano, Fury(x), best RX Vega 56/64.
I still sit pretty close, but really a matter of preference. I would recommend this monitor. Had a Dell 27" SE2717H. Upgraded to this one from amazon at £179.99, hotukd I think.

Yeah I thought the max for qhd should be 27inch?

I have no problem working and playing on a 49 inch 1080p tv while sitting at my desk. It's a fairly large desk so i am about 1.5m away. I can see pixels a little bit if I stop and concentrate on finding them them, it really is not a problem.
Shame it's not IPS but still great for the price.

It's fine for 31.5", DPI is still above 90 so you won't notice individual pixels unless you stick your face right next to it.

Don't understand this comment. I've got a 43" 1080p TV and it's fine. Why would 32" be too big for QHD?

Nah supports Freesync over HDMI. I have mine connected to my pc and it works though HDMI. Also says here amd.com/en/…ors33718131-IvC8i.jpg

This is a monitor not a TV, at the distance you sit away from a monitor the pixels on this monitor would be too big.
No longer available - out of stock
Would something like this be good for general desktop work? I don't game at all and have a monitor plugged into my 17 inch laptop. I would have used two monitors, but there aren't enough ports on the laptop, so this BIG monitor could be the answer, so I can have two windows open on it, side by side.

Would it be too big? I sit about a meter away from my current 19inch Dell 1440 one.

Also, anyone got that and can confirm if it is non-reflective or not?

Thanks
