Questions and Answers
+ Incredible bang for your buck. 1440p 144hz at the cheapest I've ever seen it.
+ The bezel may be fat, but the display is so large that it doesn't feel jarring transitioning from one monitor to the next. YMMV depending on preferences and your monitor setup.
+ VESA mount!
+ Minimal ghosting, much less than my BenQ 144hz gaming monitor.
+ Not much backlight bleed, and your standard TN viewing angles. Pretty middling for a modern TN display.
- As stated above, bezels are fat, thick, and ugly.
- The stand is cheap, flimsy, glossy black plastic and does not rotate horizontally.
- Does not include a DisplayPort cable. Why sell a 144hz monitor without a 144hz capable cable? Just knock up the price another $5 and include what the customer needs.
- Quality control is lacking, or maybe missing entirely. My monitor arrived with the protective film severely dinged up, and some blemishing along the sides.
- Not enough settings available within the OSD menu. Notably lacking strobe / pulse options, which brings me to...
- An excruciating amount of motion blur. You would not want to play competitive FPS with this monitor. Plays perfectly fine for top-down ARPGs like Diablo 3, but anything with a rapidly changing camera angle (and where that blurred information is important, like in a competitive setting) is a painful, blurry experience. I have contacted Monoprice's support team to see if there is a service menu that I can toy around with that will adjust the strobe / pulse to help alleviate this.
- "Overdrive" option in the OSD has absolutely no effect on motion blur. Maybe this is a firmware bug?
- Panel is NOT unbranded as shown in the product pictures, which I find to be very misleading. It has "IIIP" in white branding on the bottom front, as well as some ugly (and rather large) white font for the menu buttons.
This is a good monitor. Not great, not terrible, but good. If you're looking for something to play Overwatch or CSGO competitively, look elsewhere. They don't even list a response time in the product specifications, which leads me to believe they KNOW this thing has some bad blurring. For most daily tasks and less rapid-paced gaming with fast camera movement, this thing is fine.
I've never used TurnTo's review system before, so I don't know if it's possible to later edit a review -- I will revise this if possible, upon further information about the ghosting, overdrive setting, and service menu.
+Great picture after spending some time adjusting the settings
+Lots of inputs & features at this price point
+Picture in Picture! I though this feature had gone by the wayside
Cons, being very picky here
-The VESA screw holes are very shallow, you need either very short screws or use a bunch of washers/spacers with longer screws
-It's obviously a budget monitor, the plastic feels cheap and the stand is meh, using a mount is highly recommended
-The DC cable from the power brick to the barrel connector is too short
-the bezel is somewhat deep
-every time the resolution changes or the monitor turns on you get an OSD popup stating the resolution, refresh rate, and other info. The popup stays on the screen for a few seconds. You often get this popup when launching a game even if the game is set to your desktop resolution & refresh rate. I personally like this popup as it confirms your game is running at the correct resolution & refresh rate, however it would be great if you could turn this option off in the monitor settings as it can get annoying.
Cannot comment on the freesync feature as I have an nVidia card.
The first monitor I received had a single stuck pixel. Although it took a little while, the MP RMA was very easy as they have a pixel perfect guarantee on this monitor. This defect did not affect my review as MP replaced the monitor. The second monitor I received is perfect.
I tested power consumption with a Kill-a-watt
Standby: 0.3-0.4 watts
0 brightness (lowest setting): 18 watts
50 brightness (halfway): 36 watts
100 brightness (max): 45 watts
* Colors are surprisingly good for a TN panel, although maybe not as accurate as I'd like. Panel seems a little warm out of the box, and calibration seems to swing too much one way or the other, still beautiful.
* No discernible light bleed
* Freesync range is excellent
* 144 hz is truly a fantastic experience
* Bezels are unobtrusive
* I'm an average user, with no use for VESA mounting, but my god is this stand pitiful.
* External power brick keeps things thin but adds external bulk and may be difficult to place elsewhere.
* Power brick seems to make low electronic hum even when nothing is on, kinda annoying.
* Viewing angles are really unimpressive. Color shifts occur wildly past approximately 20 degrees from center. You will need this to be mounted center head-on and at eye level for best experience.
All in all, I am very happy with my purchase, however please note that Monoprice's "Next Business Day" shipping option leaves much to be desired, and they were not entirely helpful when reality did not entirely live up to this namesake.

(Basic review of the monitor here https://youtu.be/KAAR7-fO4-Y )
It has a relatively nice TN panel that fits inbetween two IPS panels at my workstation without looking too out of place, but it's still obviously a TN panel. The image looks consistent when viewed from the left or right, but it can get pretty bad looking at it from below and slightly better from above.
I don't notice any delay at all and haven't noticed any ghosting or blur. Freesync is nice, but in some games it'll cause the screen to flicker when its around the 40Hz freesync minimum, something that I'm not sure is software or hardware caused.
If you have a budget that's $100+ above this and you're okay with spending it, sure, get something better. But, if this is at the end of your budget and you want cheap 144Hz 1440p, this will do it.

For a monitor this cheap I didn't expect it be as good as the $600 range 144hz monitors, but boy was I wrong. This is a Freesync monitor, but even so your Nvidia cards will run flawlessly on it. I've had no input lag or even any dead pixels.
Monoprice even goes the extra mile to make sure your package arrives safely with their designated couriers!
Though this is a TN panel; if you're not going to use it as an extra TV screen or don't really care about true colors then there is absolutely no reason to not get this monitor.
The only real complaint that I have is that the pre-packaged HDMI cable is too short and the bezel seems a little flimsy at times, but overall it's a quality product for how much you're paying for it.
I give it 5/5 because the downsides dont outweigh the fact that I got this monitor for $225 compared to the $600 I would have to spend for an Asus monitor or better.
I will update the review as time goes on because I have had it for only under a week. These are just my own first impressions.
