Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An incredible display at a fantastic value Before I continue on with the review I’d first like to say that in the past 5 years, I’ve owned monitors using the three major panel technologies: TN, VA and IPS. I’m well aware with all of the limitations and advantages of these types of displays offer so I believe this review should be fairly unbiased and well informed. The Asus VG27WQ is a superb monitor for more than one reason, the colour reproduction is extremely wide and thanks to the fact it uses a VA panel, it produces black levels and contrast that only OLEDs can surpass. The contrast is excellent and the viewing angles are good, but not amazing. This really shouldn’t be an issue though since curved displays require you to sit in front of them to get the optimum viewing angle. Believe it or not, curved displays do really make quite a big difference in monitors. This is because it minimizes distortion in your peripheral vision. If you have a large panel, panning your eyes horizontally causes distortion as the edges of the display are further way from you compared to the centre. This does not happen to the same extent with curved screens as it brings those corners closer to you. I definitely recommend curved screens for monitors but not TVs as you’d literally have to be sitting very close to them for that effect to work. Some creative professionals may want to stick to a flat screen though as really you need a flat panel to review certain types of work. As a gaming monitor though, VA may be concerning for some as typical high-refresh rate and VA panels (IPS to a greater extend) don’t mix. Generally VA panels aren’t quite as good as TN panels when it comes to perceived responsiveness due to smearing which occurs when the panel refreshes at a high rate. There is some smearing present with the VG27WQ but it really isn’t too bad and Asus’ “Trace Free” feature works very well. Additionally, VA and IPS typically offer much better colour reproduction and contrast than TN panels, so honestly unless all you’re doing is competitive gaming, TN doesn’t make any sense at all. There is actually a second variant in the VG27 range (there may be more but I’ve not researched those). You may have heard of the VG27AQ when researching this particular monitor as it’s much much much more popular than the WQ, except it is an IPS panel rather than VA panel. Even though technically IPS gives you slightly better viewing angles than VA, it’s definitely not worth it over this variant: VG27WQ Colour Saturation: 120% (sRGB) Contrast Ratio: 3000:1 Curved: 1500R Max Brightness: 400 cd/m2 HDR: VESA DisplayHDR 400, HDR 10 Panel Type: VA Sync Technologies: Adaptive Vsync VG27AQ Colour Saturation: 99% (sRGB) Contrast Ratio: 1000:1 Curved: None Max Brightness: 350 cd/m2 HDR: HDR 10 Panel Type: IPS Sync Technologies: Adaptive Vsync, GSYNC As you can see, you’d have to be mad to get the IPS variant as it’s pretty much inferior in every way other than the fact it has Gsync. From what I’ve seen of Gsync in person, it doesn’t differ to adaptive or FreeSync in any noticeable way. It is simply a proprietary technology created by Nvidia with a lot of marketing behind it. Also Gsync does not work on AMD GPUs so honestly I’d take Adaptive Vsync any day over it. Surprisingly HDR does work very well indeed; I owned two Samsung monitors less than a year ago and had to return them both (one after the other) due to dead and stuck pixels and a non functioning DisplayPort connector. There were also almost twice the price of the VG27WQ... HDR actually looked worse than conventional SDR on those and it suffered from pretty intense backlight strobing. The contrast also dropped dramatically on the Samsungs when in HDR mode so it completely negated the feature all together. Those were VA QLED panels, so sufficed to say I was a bit nervous in purchasing another VA panel in case it turned out to be one of these hellish Samsung QLEDs in disguise :) Luckily that is definitely not the case, playing Doom Eternal with HDR enabled looked significantly better than without. The contrast ratio and extra colour HDR gives you is absolutely stunning in person, I was blown away by it given how shoddy my experience had been with HDR had been previously. You’d probably only fin d a better HDR experience on a far more expensive display to be completely honest, or on an OLED TV. Again the IPS variant of the monitor supports a lesser HDR standard and has a worse colour reproduction, so I can only assume that HDR will not be that great on the AQ. I’ve had no dead/stuck pixels and the backlight consistency is very good, it can be hard nowadays to find monitors that aren’t defective in some minor way or another so I thought this was definitely worth mentioning. Asus should be extremely happy with their engineering team and suppliers about this, I just wish they’d handed out more review units of this type as I literally could find nothing review-wise about these displays. Overall the VG27WQ is one of the best panels you can buy for the price both for gaming and for media consumption. The colour reproduction is fantastic and the consistency of the panel is very hard to match which should not be taken for granted. HDR actually works and for a curved display, the footprint of the display is small yet the build quality and stability is solid. I wish that there was at least one review of this monitor (I suppose I’m the first)... it’s a shame how its existence was essentially nullified by the more expensive twin in its range. Stay away from the AQ panel unless you like paying more for worse specifications and for the ability to use GSYNC. Is the VG27WQ worth the money? Absolutely. Do I have any regrets buying it? Zero.

In comparison to the ASUS TUF VG27AQ, which one is superior?

I don’t get the difference. I cant find review anywhere either. I know this is a VA monitor so it should have better blacks but how is the backlight bleed on this monitor?
