Having seen the monitors in action at the top global gaming tournaments, we’re impressed with the feature set they offer, delivering tremendous advantages for improving gameplay. Among the capabilities we really like are its Black eQualizer for greater visibility in dark areas, high contrast ratios that don’t strain the eyes, Smart Scaling to switch between screen sizes manually, and smooth refresh rates and fast response times, which greatly reduce the potential for error.”
