Also check how old the good reviews are, if there's a trend. Some monitor models might be good when first produced, but over time production quality slips (there might be a technical explanation for this, can't remember).
Yeah...for this reason I try to read multiple reviews. If one review says
good about a product I didn't like or suspect it's accuracy, I'll read as
many more as I can. If multiple reviews still say good then I might
consider I got a bad single item. If the reviews are split down the
middle then some people may like/not like a product for various
reasons. If overall reviews are bad then I will try to avoid it.
I'm not sure why they have the Asus MG279Q down as the best Freesync monitor, They're horrible, It sounds great as they call it the Dominator but it's not a nice monitor to use, I sent mine back within a week.
I may of just been unlucky with the amount of bleed in the corners but the worse feature of the monitor was it's Freesync capability,
Yes it's a 144hz monitor but Freesync only works between 40 and 90 hz so every time the fps went above 90 a message appeared on screen saying Freesync's now turned off. I'm sure there was a way to turn the message off but you don't want that to be happening anyway. If it's a 144hz panel Freesync should go up to 144hz. It's definitely not a good Freesync monitor.
