Best value 1440p high refresh rate monitor on the market, hands down- At least at the time of this writing (July 2019). I picked this up for $300 and it's been worth every penny. The panel has beautiful color accuracy, nearing IPS territory and beating many VA panels I've seen, with a wonderful 1ms response time that has minimal ghosting if you keep it at the 'Normal' or 'Fast' settings. Freesync through the HDMI 2.0 port works flawlessly on the 'fast' setting, giving a very smooth gaming experience with no tearing to be found. Viewing angles are good but not great, which is going to happen with a TN panel. Same with contrast and brightness- good but not amazing.
Another added bonus- using a proper DisplayPort 1.2 cable, I was able to use G-Sync without a problem via a 1080ti FTW3 that a friend let me borrow/test. I didn't experience any flickering or visual artifacts in Forza Horizon 4, Apex Legends, Destiny 2, Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, or Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. The only difference is the sync floor- 55hz vs 40hz with Freesync. But from 55hz all the way up to 155hz, it performed perfectly.
I can't comment on the stand, as I immediately mounted the display on a monitor arm using the available VESA mounting points.
The built-in USB 3.0 4-port hub works great and is the perfect place to put wireless dongles for bluetooth, mouse, keyboard, etc.
The buttons on the bottom right are hard to see, but easy to feel. The UI is standard fare and functions as needed, even if it's not flashy.
The build quality of the panel itself is fantastic. It feels sturdy and well put together. A simple, professional aesthetic that eschews the typical 'Gamer Flair' that can look childish at times means this monitor will fit in fine in any environment. The physical bezels, aside from the bottom chin, are small, but there are larger in-display bezels that aren't visible when the panel is off. These bezels aren't overly large and are what I'd consider 'standard' size. The screen is matte with what seems to be a decent anti-glare coating.
The monitor only ships with an HDMI 2.0 cable in addition to the power cable and USB 3.0 pass-through cable. If you want to use the 155hz refresh rate or G-Sync, you will need to purchase a DisplayPort 1.2 or better cable yourself, so keep that in mind. The provided HDMI 2.0 cable, when plugged into the appropriate port, works great all the way up to 144hz, but will not allow you to overclock the monitor to the 155hz max refresh rate.
For the picture quality, feature set, and G-Sync compatibility, if you see this thing anywhere close to $300, grab it. You won't regret it.

Some backlight bleed around the edges on a black screen, but you're not going to notice that while crushing demons in Quad HD at insane frame rates, are you?

This monitor is huge compared to what I'm used to. I almost got the 32" MSI for an extra 100 bucks, but I'm glad I didn't, that would have been too big. Connected right away to my PC

Awesome monitor, especially for the price. 1440p is a little hard on my 2060, but I still get 100+ frames on everything.

Performs well out of box with stock settings. Set to 144hz refresh rate in Windows settings. Mount allows height adjustment as well as angulation.

What a nice monitor. I love the size, the resolution, the refresh rate, the colours. Was choosing bettween ultrawide 1080p, 1440p or this. Ultrawide 1080p was just not enough pixels for office work. UW 1440p was too demanding on the GPU, so I went with the sweet spot and not regretting it. Most videos on youtube and really anywhere are still 16:9, so you won't miss anything really. For games it would have been nice, but 1440p is nice also. Before buying ultrawide, take a look at one in the store. Most of the are curved and I didn't like how straight lines are bent.

Build quality upon opening the box was stunning and reminded me of the iMac's design aesthetic. Plenty of wire inputs on the back for speakers/usb/hdmi1 and 2/display port. Comes with an HDMI cord and if you use the hdmi 2 input will give you up to 144Hz. Only with display port and overclocked will you get 155Hz. The picture quality is impressive when running games and programs in 1440p.

Amazing monitor, best value monitor on the market. 1440p 155hz with Freesync is amazing when I can drive it.
27" is almost too big for a monitor, but is very nice to have the monitor fill up a large portion of my field of view. Color reproduction is adequate, I didn't notice any issues so it's fine especially for a TN panel. Viewing angles work, I didn't notice any color distortion on the edges while sitting in front of it. Using the tilt and height adjustment, you can get it exactly where you need it. It also rotates to display vertically if that's your thing.
1440p is nice, it is definitely a step up from 1080p in games. I can see more detail, but I feel like I can only really appreciate it when I sit close to the monitor. A bonus is that I think I can get away with using less anti-aliasing. But it really shines in desktop and web use, it feels like there is finally enough room to have two programs split down the screen. Text is still big enough to read clearly while not taking up too much space.
155hz is definitely the better function of the monitor in my opinion, coming from somebody who played on 1080p 75hz before. Everything feels smoother and it just feels right to lower the details and go for a higher FPS. Freesync is a massive bonus, allowing the GPU to keep a game smooth and prevent tearing anywhere from 40 to 155 FPS.
It comes with HDMI 1.2, HMDI 2.0, Displayport, headphone out, and two USB ports.
Would absolutely recommend buying for $300 and maybe even $350.
