PC monitor manufacturers tend to focus on a particular buzzword or acronym almost every year. In the past, we have been treated to HD (high definition), denoting the screen is capable of running a minimum 720p resolution.

Date Issued: 15th May 2015

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.

27" ASUS VG27AQ Monitor, IPS, 2560x1440, 165Hz, 1ms, Adaptive Sync, HDR10, 1000:1, 350cd/m², HDMI/DP, G-SYNC Compatible is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but.... I love everything about this monitor however mine arrived with not one... not two... but three black dead spots that Asus refuse to RMA as they say it needs 5 dead pixels to do an RMA. Scan did offer to refund the product but couldn't send me a replacement till they recieved this one back (which is more than fair) but as I am 100% dependant on this screen for at home working and can't go a few days without a screen I couldn't return it then wait for another to be delivered. Overall I do like the monitor but those marks are a huge disappointment, this is also the second ASUS monitor I have had in a row like this so I think I will be avoiding their monitors in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice monitor for mixed use Nice colours and beautiful refresh rate. Just moving the mouse in windows at 144hz is a dream!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but there is a caveat (IPS glow) From what I have read all the major manufactures seem to have the same issue with IPS monitors and that is IPS glow. If you game in a dark room this really is one for the panel lottery as the IPS glow can be pretty bad. I had to send the first one back to get another with a lot less glow and am very happy I did. Downside to that is you have to pay shipping costs to return so £15-£25 premium. If you game with the lights on then IPS glow won't really matter to you. In summary this is a great monitor and both ELMB and freesync can be enabled at the same time (bare in mind ELMB reduces light output as black frames are inserted to help with motion so for me its great as I game in a dark room with lights off). If you get this monitor you will also need a proper gpu as well to run it. It does get errors/ghosting type effect when the framerate dips into (and below) the 100hz range when the VRR matches it. If you don't have an AMD 5700XT/NVIDIA 2070 or above I'd recommend going for a 1080p monitor instead if you're going for 144hz and above. More in depth review here (Although they got lucky with their black uniformity, again panel lottery!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gaming Monitor Takes about 10 seconds to start up and display the signal, even from standby - noticeably slower than my old monitors, but once its running it works like a charm, hi rez, bright colours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Monitor! This monitor arrived within 2 days of ordering, it came in the asus box without additional packaging and bubble wrap. The monitor itself is amazing, it's easy to setup and adjust it's height and angles. I bought this monitor for gaming and for general viewing, so far it's one of the best decisions i have made. ELMB Sync is a great feature to have. No issues as of yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An excellent monitor This monitor arrived a few days ago after a covid-related delay. It was well packaged and easy to set up. The monitor itself looks excellent and has plenty of play for adjustment to height, viewing angle etc. The only downside is the marked IPS glow from the bottom corners which is fairly bright even on low brightness settings. Aside from this the picture, responsiveness, depth and features are excellent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this 4 months after purchase this monitor has such severe screen burn that it is unusable. Do not buy this under any circumstances.
