It does not have built-in speakers so it is not a good choice for entertainment. Also the screen resolution is 1080p, making it mediocre for media-creation.
Design & Ergonomics

The Koorui 24E4 has a very minimal appearance from the front.

The Koorui gaming monitor has bad ergonomics because it only offers tilt function, so the stand is very poor.
It does not offer adjustments due to its cheap pricing.

Also there is an option of VESA mounting for those who need.

- Peak Brightness – 250-nits
The Koorui gaming monitor has satisfactory 250-nits peak brightness.
It is decent for a monitor that is priced under $150.

Still, it is not the best choice for lit environments.

Gaming on this monitor in the dark feels much more better, immersive, and clear due to its high contrast ratio.

We think the top-bottom viewing angles are terrible.
Also, viewing this monitor from either of the extreme sides should fade colors easily.

That’s a Wrap!
We think the Koorui 24E4 gaming monitor is a great choice for budget buyers. Its 165Hz refresh rate very smooth and the 24-inch screen size feels comfortable for gaming.
What happens is the manufacturers cost-cut and bring down the monitor size to 22-inch which feels very small and is not the most comfortable size for gaming.
Hence, we recommend this gaming monitor to those who do not want to spend much. It is not a perfect monitor, but it has a got a lot of things perfect.
