Affordable price point as a refurb;
1 billion colors;
full ergonomic adjustments;
Two major issues that made me return the monitor:
Couldn’t get 10-bit color enabled through Radeon Software settings even when I adjusted the refresh rate down to 120 Hz as suggested by the bandwidth limitation. I’ve tried enabling “HDR” in the color space, and that didn’t do anything either.
A large portion of the screen had a serious temperature uniformity issue. The right half of the screen warmer than the left. Specifically, the top right is slightly green, bottom middle is slightly magenta, and the bottom right is yellow. The best spot is in the top left. Even the bottom left has some slight uniformity issue. This is unacceptable. The temperature difference is glaringly obvious when you’re looking at a site like this one (LTT forums main page) because there are a lot of white and light grey spanning across the screen.
Other minor reasons contributing to the poor experience:
Out of the box, the monitor’s default settings are confusing. Is “Standard” mode the one that’s factory-calibrated? Why does sRGB mode or HDR mode automatically enable the sharpening feature (which looks terrible). Why does adjusting brightness switch me from sRGB mode back to Standard?
The stand is metal and seems strong at first, but the position isn’t locked tight; in the default position, the screen slightly pivots to the right as if it’s heavier on the right side.
No cable management cut-out.
Lowest price according to CCC $399.99 . Boxing Day 2019 price from CC $380 .

Great colour on the panel. 120hz 144hz on gaming is smooth. Give 4 star cause the monitor has a noticeable top missed glue part. The panel is not firmly attaxhed, not big issue but could be better.
