I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!

  1. Love the monitor, I have the XG350R-C and it has been amazing. However, I cannot get the RGB to sync with either TT RGB Plus or Razer Synapse 3, let alone even show up. Not the biggest complaint in the world, but it is fairly annoying when trying to sync all of your RGB.
