I'm typing on an Asus VG27AQ 1440p 165hz IPS panel as we speak, and I've had NUMEROUS 120-144hz panels before and returned them all, and will probably return this Asus too. Brief overview of this panel:
1) It looks like garbage compared to the 27" 1440p 60hz Korean IPS panel I used to have that actually had a real IPS panel in it.
2) It looks like garbage compared to the 27" 1080p Samsung PLS panel I have and I think the Samsung is even a 6 bit PLS with dithering
3) Even at a setting of 0 brightness, it's still too bright and is probably pushing 125-130nits. I use most 27" panels around 110-120 max.
4) The panel coating is matte but is also shiny at the same time that causes all light sources coming from it to have a halo effect that just amplifies IPS glow. The backlight bleed is also worse than my Samsung PLS panel in general.
5) Both the gamma and colors are way off even after manually adjusting to a 6500k white point.
6) I can calibrate any monitor to 6500k using just my eye and no matter what I do with this one I can't get the whites to be as clean as most other panels I've had. They have kinda a dirty off-white tinge to them, likely related to the issue below.
7) Color temperature is probably 7000k on the right side of the screen and 6000k on the left side. It has a very non-uniform temperature in other words.
8) There's not really much difference in how I play at 60hz vs 144hz, so sacrificing image quality for higher hz is pointless
9) Having overdrive turned on makes mouse movement worse, so if you actually wanted to compete in video games you would just use a CRT instead of a ghetto overdrive LCD. Hell, I don't think I've even SEEN a panel where overdrive on didn't look more unnatrual than having it off.
10) Going from 60hz to 71-75hz (which you can do with just about any panel) already covers most of the benefits of using a higher hz panel anyway in terms of motion fluidity
11) Even though I bought a brand new Asus GPU and Asus monitor, the displayport on the monitor doesn't even work and I'm forced to use HDMI, w.t.f?
