2560x1080 is a very underrated resolution IMO, still giving you that ultrawide FOV without the performance drawback of an incredibly high pixel count such as the more popular 1440p ultrawides. Expect gaming performance to be somewhere between 1080p and 1440p. At 30", the pixel density is comparable to a standard 24" 1080p monitor, so it is still very visually pleasing and much better than many of the 35" models of this resolution. The 200 Hz refresh rate makes for very fluid gameplay in lesser-demanding games like CS:GO and Apex Legends, plus the wide aspect ratio is an absolute treat for AAA titles. Colors were good out of the box, as far as my untrained eyes could tell, with only a slight yellow-green tint. FreeSync works like a charm. Overall an incredible value for the feature-set at around $250. I would recommend this to any PC gamer on a budget looking for that ultrawide experience. Very glad the monitor market has diversified so much over the past few years; I must thank the factory workers for their hard work.
This monitor does have noticeable motion blur and black level smearing (as you move around, dark parts of the image have a thick ghosting trail). I've heard this is common issue with VA panels, so I wasn't surprised, but after seeing it for myself, it definitely can be an eyesore, especially compared to the TN and IPS panels I've used previously. Overdrive set to "Off" in the menu seems to be the best option for eliminating overall ghosting, but black level smearing doesn't change. Overall when things are in motion, this monitor can fall a bit short. However, for me personally, it doesn't bother me that much. For a $250 VA monitor, I knew what to expect and so should anyone buying this product.
