There are good reviews in this monitor especially gamers playing first person shooting games like CS-GO, Call of Duty, and OverWatch because of the Black Stabilizer which allows better visibility on dark scenes and if you have AMD GPUs it has AMD FreeSync™ that eliminates tearing from the low frame rate and also screen stuttering as connecting HDMI port. All of these bring that you can enjoy and immerse in game play according to LG's website. I'm not a fan of the arc stand but its just the stand compared to the value for money for the monitor.
