I had mine for almost 2 years and was super happy with it. Although it was my first 144hz monitor I might be biased or "inexperienced" with monitors but I still think benQ is the real deal in the market. It has black equalizer, good customization with colors and image quality that is better than most monitors out there IMO (especially at 144hz). Now I got the upgraded version which is 240hz benQ and even though differences are small I think it's really good. I once had a ASUS ROG monitor that I had to return immediately because the customization was so bad IMO.
