27″ monitor ASUS VG279Q – 144Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time…

ASUS VG279Q is a good 27-inch and 144Hz monitor with an IPS panel. It has a simple design with exceptional ergonomics. It offers good image quality, with extremely precise colors and high maximum brightness, but is limited a bit by its 1080p resolution. The movement looks great thanks to the extremely fast response time, and has a black frame insertion function to help reduce any motion blur. It also supports FreeSync variable update frequency technology to reduce tearing in games. Unfortunately, as is the case with most IPS monitors, it doesn’t look good in a dark room due to its low contrast ratio, but it has wide viewing angles.ASUS VG279Q Monitor

ASUS VG279Q is good for multimedia. It has an excellent response time, so fast-moving objects have a very short blur trail behind them. The image also stays accurate when it appears in a corner, which is great for seeing with some other people. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look so good in a dark room, but it has exceptional color accuracy, so you don’t need to calibrate it if you don’t want to.

ASUS VG279Q is a good monitor for most uses. It has wide angles of vision, exceptional ergonomics and high maximum brightness. The movement looks great thanks to the high refresh rate, quick response time and flicker-free backlighting. This TV offers good picture quality, but it doesn’t look so good in a dark room. Unfortunately, 1080p resolution may disappoint some people, but the 27-inch screen offers a good amount of screen space.ASUS VG279Q Monitor

ASUS VG279Q is a great gaming monitor. It has a superb, fast refresh rate, supports FreeSync and has a fantastic response time, so the movement looks great with very little blurring. It also has an excellent low entry delay in most modes, making it ideal for even the most competitive players. Unfortunately, 1080p resolution doesn’t offer an immersive gaming experience.ASUS VG279Q Monitor

Good media monitor. ASUS VG279Q has excellent ergonomics and wide viewing angles, making it easy to share your work with a close colleague. It also has an excellent range of SDR colors, but has limited coverage of Adobe RGB’s larger color space, which is not ideal for creating professional media. Unfortunately, 1080p resolution cannot offer the same clear images as 1440p or 4k monitors.Photo:Asus
ASUS VG279Q has an excellent 144 Hz upgrade rate. It supports FreeSync via HDMI and DisplayPort and works with NVIDIA Adaptive Sync controllers, but only via DisplayPort. We tested this with our NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB and had no problems.
