This is one of the cheapest 200Hz monitors with a 30-inch curved display in the market and it is a value-for-money product, so just like pros, there are some negative points in this monitor such as the stand is not fully adjustable and the brightness is not that great.

Build and Design

Talking about the build quality don’t expect a strong build quality as it is a budget monitor with so many great spaces and the design is good the minimal bezels look very nice. The stand is small and fits easily on any desk size without keeping any extra space because many ultrawide monitor captures so much space on your desk due to it’s design but this is really at space consumption.

The bad thing about this stand is it doesn’t support height adjustability or pivot adjustments, the stand is tilt-only and the reason is the ultrawide design but there are many monitors available that come with height adjustable stands so this is one of the downsides of this monitor, usually ultrawide monitor don’t have fully adjustable stan due to its design.

The weight of this monitor is 5.5 Kg with a stand and this is very lightweight if you compare it with other 30-inch ultrawide monitors, The dimensions are 27.82″ x 16.1″ x 7.28″ inches with the stand.

Image Quality

The Sceptre C305B-200UN1 offers an 30 inches 1800R curved VA panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1080  pixels, the monitor supports HDR so you can see the better dynamic range on HDR playbacks also the panel supports sRGB coverage of 99% for better color accuracy. The overall image is good but the brightness and contrast are not as impressive as other mid-range monitors this is a budget monitor so you can’t expect amazing image quality but it’s very good at this price tag and the overall specs are so good at this price.


Performance-wise the monitor is extremely good at 250$ price tag, This is really awesome to play games with its big 30-inch curved display and 200Hz refresh rate feels super smooth, It has FreeSync premium for more stable graphics and less frame rate dropping.
