Hello, I've been looking at getting a new monitor because my current one has a crack on the screen. I found this monitor for $600NZD but I don't know if it is any good, Hardware Unboxed has a review of a very similar monitor and it seems to be good overall for the price. I just want to make sure that this one is as good as it looks to me. This would also be a big upgrade for me if I buy it because I had a 1080p 60Hz monitor and I only have a GTX 970 that I hope to use until 3000 series gpus come out. Thanks.

HWUnboxed cover it in that video - seems like their models come from the same factory as Viotek.

Looks like this one uses the same housing as the GNV34DB
https://viotek.com/gnv34db-uwqhd-curved-gaming-monitor-100hz-1440p-vesa/

Albeit, with an overclocked 144Hz panel and not 100Hz that Viotek are offering.

Just an assumption, but I'd fully expect the same kind of pitfalls (build quality etc) and likely a B grade panel (as in, higher numbers of dead pixels allowable) to be present on that monitor too.... but as a value offering, it's most likely 'fine'.

Ok, thank you I just needed to make sure that it was not terrible.
