    from completed build Aesthetically pleasing

    Very clean looking monitor, very adjustable. This version did not come with the back-lighting :(

    I love dell and their Alienware products. Very good price as well for a 240hz. Freesync should also support G-sync now for Nvidia cards when used with DisplayPort cable.
    I am using HDMI 2.0 right now with my GTX 1070 which allows for 240hz, but i don't have the g-sync option.

    The AW2518HF is the best monitor I've ever seen by miles and is backed by a great warranty. It was also surprisingly affordable, and even without G-sync I've never witnessed any tearing at its absurd 240hz refresh rate. Color reproduction for a TN panel is fantastic. There is some ghosting, which you should really expect at these refresh rates - the ghosting I see is minimal compared to other monitors I have seen.

    The only issues I've ever read on this monitor were related to its stand. I really don't think its stand is that large, and it's an incredibly adjustable mount. It's even VESA compatible if it's that big of an issue for you.

    Easy perfect rating.

    Pricey and 240Hz isn't much different from 144Hz realistically. The perfect monitor for competitive games where refresh rate and performance matter more than graphics, ie. Overwatch, CS, Valorant, etc. I would avoid this monitor for people who prefer visuals as the display itself is a little soft and has poor viewing angles. The monitor stand is a nightmare. I like to compete in Overwatch tournaments and I play on a pretty slow sensitivity, 400 dpi 6 in game. This means I require quite a large mousepad. For me to be comfortable and to have the monitor my ideal distance away, part of my mousepad overlapped with the monitor stand and I would frequently hit my mouse off of the stand's legs. This issue was frustrating enough to the point where I had to buy a monitor arm. The legs are almost as wide as the screen itself and they reach pretty far forward so the monitor hogs a lot of desk space especially compared to my Dell 24in 2nd monitor. If you have some sort of vesa mount, play with your monitor far away, use a small mousepad, or don't care about the stand issue, this monitor is incredible and is easily a 5/5 for competitive gaming and a 3/5 for other uses.

    from completed build PATTON (first ground up build)

    DELL really likes building 1 ton monitor bases. I feel like the base is 1/2 the cost of every DELL monitor... anyway, its not gonna fall over thats for sure, and if you happen to be in a tornado you can place your house under it and it probably wont go anywhere! Other than that, works as advertised 240Hz @ 1920 x 1080 no issue. Also appears to be quality built, does NOT look cheap. Again, use it to hold your house down in a hurricane and your neighbors can bask in its industrial strength. (*note, be aware if you move the monitor around or flip the orientation you can accidentally put it into "preview" mode. This splits the screen down the middle giving two different display settings. The reason I say this is because I thought I broke it, but I guess this is a common yet mysterious issue! You Just simply unplug your Display port/ HDMI wire from the computer and re-plug it in. If not unplug the monitors power supply and this should reset it. : )

    This was actually my first purchase which arrived 2 weeks ago! I was able to get it at a good price relative to retail and I am happy with the aesthetics of the monitor.

    If you are thinking of running competitive games at high refresh rates this is definitely a solid choice. I have no complaints thus far.

    very good monitor, I got it while it was on sale so 100% worth the price. (I now believe what i thought to be a sale is a permanent price change)
