+
-

+Sturdy materials and no build quality issues
+Fully adjustable stand
+Perceived black depth increasing grey bezel
+Displayport, Dual-Link DVI and HDMI Inputs
+48-144hz AMD Free-Sync
+Negligible ghosting or overdrive issues at both 60 and 144hz
+Negligible input lag
+Excellent 60hz preset color accuracy
+Excellent 144hz accuracy after two gamma setting changes
+Calibration barely improves image quality
+Good screen uniformity and no back-light bleed
+Simple and easy to use menu

-Reduced contrast, gamma and uniformity at optimal 144hz refresh rate versus 60hz
-Very low gamma at 144hz resulting in obviously washed out image quality
-Blue light bleed visible in content with black, dark brown and greys
-Displayport and HDMI image quality is slightly different
-Need to use different calibration settings for 60hz and 144hz
-Slightly skewed color gamut resulting in minor over and under saturation
-Banding in very dark content


I did not list the TN panel's very restrictive viewing angles and dull and uneven colors from top to bottom as negatives since these flaws are often givens when buying a TN panel, as well as unavoidable.
