Whether the broadcasters are going HD or not, TV sets and projectors are arriving thick and fast which claim to support higher resolutions than regular telly. But HDTV is far from just one standard – it incorporates a couple of different resolutions, two different scanning modes, and a number of different frame rates. In this article, we present a guide to what all the terms actually mean.

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.

27" ASUS TUF Gaming VG27AQL1A, IPS, 2560x1440, 170Hz, 1ms, FreeSync, HDR, 1000:1, 400cd/m², HDMI/DP, G-SYNC Compatible is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feature packed gaming monitor I bought this monitor upgrading from a Dell S2417DG that has a fault. Plugging in this monitor with default settings on DisplayPort gave a vibrant rich picture that was slightly yellow on the warm setting. I used colour settings from Rtings as a guide from the older VG27AQ model which helped and seemed to match similarly. I found the colour very strong on this monitor and the monitor supports 10bit / 1billion colours - just make sure to select 120Hz to enable it as this monitor doesn't have DisplayPort 1.4. The contrast seems very good next to my old Dell which is a TN display as this display is IPS. The brightness is good too and I have enjoyed trying out HDR on games that support it such as Death Stranding. 170Hz support is nice if your graphics card can handle it and with the ELMB-SYNC (ultra low motion blur with adaptive sync) it is excellent and it makes fast motion that much clearer. There is also a dynamic dimming option which seems OK but not great - the dimming seems a bit slow and the area is quite wide. I found this nice to use at night to help reduce the IPS glow but I haven't needed it in daytime. It is worth noting that you can only enable one of ELMB-SYNC, HDR or dynamic dimming at a time. Overall this monitor is great out of the box if you want to have a good quality and great value monitor for the quality offered. The build quality is good and nice to see a pivot as well. ASUS also included 2x USB 3.0 ports compared to its predecessor. I definitely recommend this monitor for gaming and would probably make a decent photo / video editing monitor using 10bit although I am not sure if it is true 10bit or 8 bit + FRC.
