CHEAP Korean 144Hz Gaming Monitor – Classic Unboxing

September 26, 2019


So my buddy Dongsu Park over at Z-otak He emails me every once in a while, but we’ve got more cheap Korean monitors Just like that last time we sent to a cheap Korean monitor, and a lot of the time I’m like ah that doesn’t really look that Amazing you guys not that impressed oh O ooooooooooh Not this time I have not been able to find Anything online that is comparable to the cheap Korean monitor deal that I have for you guys today Today This is the crossover fast 144Hz 144 it is a 2560 by 1440 IPS panel 144 hertz display *grunts* Then I will get out of the box eventually for 299 US *Intro* Okay, so first things first, let’s have a look at what kind of goods we get for our 299 U.S dollars we get a lot of bubble wrap Wow okay, we get a remote that’s weird. You get a power cable we get a love this apparently it is easier cheaper for them to do this, this way they just send you an Asian power cord, and then they send you an adapter so that you can Yeah, adapt it to your North American plug Not the most elegant solution ever, but hey it gets the job done we also get a display port cable We get a closer look at that Remote that I alluded to before got kind of like a little Winky like Napster guy on there and then we get our own tool and screws there – presumably assemble this thing and Assemble we shall this comes in more pieces than your typical Monitor stands I like the construction though You hear that? It’s a train. It’s the game train To the station So the way you orient this bad boy is you kind of look at the Marks and the angles and you kind of line the thing and then it kind of goes on a little something like that ten out of ten instructions dick not stuck inside the monitor stand this feels like kind of a stupid thing to do, but I’m actually gonna set up the monitor in front of the 65 inch OLED TV from LG that I’ve got going on here the reason being is that that’s really not actually that great for gaming So it’s nice to have other options First we got to get the stand on here though this also Well, built I will give them credit for that but not especially Outstanding in terms of like height adjustment or anything so you’re you’re definitely giving up some for your $2.99 144 Hertz freesync IPS display and that is The robustness of the stand to their credit though at least they’ve got a vase amount that one really drives me crazy when you got a cheap stand and They didn’t build in the necessary internal reinforcements for a third-party mount You guys want to see me strip on camera And of course it doesn’t look perfect. I’ve cranked that so tight alright So There it is pretty bare-bones if you ask me But Can it make up for it with the gaming experience? To find out we are gonna be using something really really special Now I’m not a televangelist So I’m not gonna give you guys the whole thing about planting a seed of a dollar and someday it will return to you 10,000 X But that is what happened today, so I first met Charles about ten years ago How what’s the safest way to take this out of here? I won’t be able to pull it up Can I try? Whoa, that’s a heavy system Feels like yeah, I was gonna say So I first met Charles ten years ago on This was back when I was building high-end systems or at least what I thought were high-end systems we’re about to see that redefined when I was building high-end systems back at NCIX and I had noticed him originally because he had all these really expensive invoices like six thousand dollars like regular, and I’m like dude What are you doing with all this stuff turns out? He was building some really special systems also in We have we we shared We shared we had something in common right off the bat our favorite case the Silverstone T-J07 anyway The first time I met him in person he was in Desperate need of a really special set of fittings for a thermo chiller radiator some British standard plug that was very uncommon even for water cooling crap ten years ago and I actually didn’t want to get rid of them because they were they were fairly unusual they were Like even finding nickel-plated thermo chill fittings back. Then was really tough. These were really nice ones They had ribs all the way down. So they sealed really nice, and I was like You know what Charles just for you so Since then He’s actually been I mean not full-time that he’s been hard at work on what he calls the xform @mb x2 this is a truly special case based on the original t jo7 and he brought this here for me a Special system that he hand-built himself in this chassis Absolutely one-of-a-kind and we’re gonna use this to power up our monitor Okay, here we go so some assembly required you guys see that Totally custom fan mounting all aluminum, but I’m not gonna like bang it together. This is not a train Okay, this is this is a piece of art We’re gonna do a full showcase of this thing down the line for now. We’re just going to be using it – yes I’m gonna draw your attention stop stop back to the monitor back to the monitor, so it’s got four HDMI ports I didn’t talk about that before one DisplayPort an audio passed through and a DC in Jack. Let’s go ahead and Get this baby fired up This is pretty cool To put it mildly Like I feel like an idiot having a blue Ethernet cable now Look at this, now I have to fix everything. Thanks Charles This is not a gift. This is an obligation Look I said look at the monitor this video isn’t about that. We’re gonna do a video about that later stop Can’t tell Wow okay quick boot Okay, I gotta say. I’m glad it comes with the remote though Doesn’t come with batteries, so I’m gonna have to go find some because this buttons on the back of the monitor thing is basically unusable I’m just trying to adjust the brightness color, effect, temperature Gamma, ultra vivid what is this? Where’s just brightness? Look at this hey you’re supposed to be looking at the monitor. Not the computer. We’ve been through this Yeah, they lost it hella Okay, what is this? What is or mayshen set apparently. It’s what I need because that’s where brightness is and We are back This is actually really impressive Like this is right up there with Some of the lowest motion blur that I’ve seen on an IPS that and this this machine and this monitor are match made in heaven this thing’s actually running it over a hundred frames per second at 2560 by 1440 so if I lose it’s only because of me There is uh no excuses for anything at this point like here You can actually maybe even see it a little bit here. Just how there’s no There’s no motion blur. There’s no streaking behind that I am really impressed with this thing especially for the price Like it won’t make me good at counter-strike. That’s for sure but I’m still reloading. I got two guns here come on. It’s not fair You dead Like this gaming experience has been available for a while, but now the difference is that it’s cheap I’d like to be clear three hundred dollars is still a lot of money But in the context of what we would have paid for this kind of an experience before It’s pretty affordable the only comparable things. I could find was a 144 Hertz 1440p $300 monitor on monoprice, but that was a TN panel and then for an IPS with those specs you were paying Quite a bit more So to be clear Not everything about this thing is perfect this menu can die in a fire I’m just turning up the brightness a little bit because this game is kind of kind of dark. Yeah, that looks that let’s find out But it’s got a lot going for it. I am super impressed for 300 bucks and Yeah, you can check that out of the link in the video description while you’re at it If you guys are interested in learning a little bit more about this beast before we do our follow up video The case itself is actually for sale on mod 1, so we’ll have a link to that in the description as well
