Viewing angle

This g sync monitor gives a viewing angle of 170 degrees horizontally and 160 degrees vertically. It uses a TN panel, which may not provide the best viewing angles for spectators but if you are viewing from the center it will give you all the clarity you need during the game. It even has a black stabilizer to enhance darker areas which may give you some help during some games.
