This monitor was truly built with gaming in mind. Features that improve the gaming experience include a curved screen, a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 3000:1 contrast ratio. It also was built with a gamer-centric user interface that makes it easy to adjust its settings. One more cool feature: the dual-hinged arm allows for easy screen adjustment and precise control over the way the panel is displayed. Yeah, it’s expensive, but think about the hours you’ll spend in front of it. Divvy up that time and it’ll pay for itself in, what, a week or two?
