Today we will be reviewing the Aftershock X315 PRO Monitor.
Big thanks to Aftershock for sending this out for review.
When you receive your monitor, it comes well packed in styrofoam and has a soft cover protecting the screen.
In the box you will get:
- The Monitor itself
- The Aluminium Monitor Stand
- All the mounting hardware for the stand and optional VESA mount
- A power cable
- A Display port cable
- And some documentation
The Aftershock X315 PRO is an amazing looking monitor, the body is all white plastic with the front bezel also being a white plastic with the logo on it. The Robust aluminium stand is super heavy duty and holds the monitor up really well. You definitely get a premium feel when using this monitor.
The X315 pro has a curvature of 1800R which gives you a great immersive feel when using it.
The X315 pro has 5 buttons to navigate through the menu to change things like brightness, colour mode etc.
On the back of the monitor is the included 75*75 VESA mount, or you can use the included monitor stand.
Also at the back is the inputs which are nicely protected by a plastic shroud, the inputs offered are HDMI 1.4, Display Port 1.2, and DVI Dual-Link
The monitor has a native resolution of 2560*1440 and a refresh rate of up to 144Hz! It can display up to 16.7 million colours and has a screen curvature of 1800R and a contrast ratio of 3000:1
The panel itself is a QHD VA panel and has a response time of 6ms or 4ms using their included ‘overdrive’.
It does not have in built speakers which is unfortunate, but if you’re using this monitor for it’s intended use of gaming you are probably already wearing headphones.
Aftershock has also implemented a feature on this monitor for on the fly modes which include FPS, RTS, Movie, Text and Game.
In conclusion, i think the X315 is a great budget friendly QHD 144Hz monitor coming in at only $600 AUD which converts to $430 USD. Currently Aftershock has a promotion going on, if you do decide to buy this monitor you will get free shipping(Australia Only).
Big thanks again to Aftershock for sending this one out for review, thanks guys!
