In terms of ergonomics, rotation, tilt, height adjustment, pivot, VESA mount (75 x 75 mm), blue light filtering, and a flicker-free backlight are offered. RGB lighting elements are attached to the back of the monitor. Meanwhile, a black stabilizer can be controlled via the OSD to brighten dark areas in games.
