Certainly looks like a great option at $400 if you can tolerate IPS's downsides.

I've owned plenty of IPS monitors, including, supposedly, the best IPS gaming monitor on the market a few years back - the ROG PG279Q. To me, IPS monitors are all a bit rubbish because the strengths of IPS aren't particularly important for gaming (colour accuracy, wide viewing angles, 400-nit brightness), whilst the drawbacks (corner glow, susceptibility to backlight bleed, poor black levels, poor brightness uniformity, and poor contrast ratios) are exactly the sort of things that ruin the image quality if you're playing after the sun has gone down - and lets face it, most people play after they've come home from school/work and had their evening meal.

Sure, VA panels aren't perfect either but in my experience they are a better fit than IPS with 3x the contrast ratio, black levels that look black even when the room is gently lit, none of the off-angle glow that some IPS suffers from, and VA technology is far more forgiving when it comes to panel uniformity and backlight leakage, so that even budget VA match high-end IPS in this regard. If you game in a daylight-lit room where you can crank the brightness up to 250 nits or higher, then some of the the problems of IPS go away - but I, like most people I know, prefer to game in a room with dimmed lights because most monitors are positioned against a wall so perfectly positioned to catch glare from overhead ceiling lights.

Investing in a gas-lift VESA desk clamp was the best monitor decision I've made. So many monitor stands are ugly, bad, or both.

Looks like another rebrand of the Chinese LUMI ones I buy for work (rebranded as XENTA in the UK). They're absolutely fine - sturdy and smooth enough to adjust; Definitely better quality than I was expecting for the price.

the listing is incorrect it looks like: as you can see here:


newegg had listed quantum dot for the wrong monitor. the non-quantum dot of the same panel is now out, but not the QD version even though under info on newegg it had it listed as quantum dot, but if you compare adorama model numbers, hardwareunboxed model number, you can see newegg made an error in that listing, the QD model will be $50 more it looks like:
