Refresh Rate: Right out of the box this monitor can be overclocked. The display is shipped with a refresh rate of 60 Hz, but the options menu of this monitor enables you to increase that to 100Hz.
Cramped: Users have noted that their ears touch the sides of the helmet and their nose gets dangerously close to the lens, and in hot and humid environments this can make for an uncomfortable experience.
