" ...  I mainly run PUBG and Overwatch. ... There is one issue with this monitor and that is that it is VERY POWERFULLY BRIGHT (which is great for games like PUBG), so if i want to use it at night I need to lower the brightness and saturation but there is no "night mode" or anything like that I can find on this monitor, and there does not seem to be a way to save custom user presets inside the monitor's options, so i have to manually use the monitor interface to change the brightness and saturation each time.  ...  "
