Pros and cons

According to our monitor expert
  • Pros:
    G-Sync synchronizes your video card's frame rate with this monitor and prevents tearing and stuttering.
  • Pros:
    With a 165Hz refresh rate, you can play games more smoothly than with 75Hz.
  • Pros:
    Thanks to the integrated speakers, you won't need any separate speakers.
  • Con:
    'Backlight bleeding' can occur in dark spaces with this monitor, in which case light leaks around the edges of the screen instead of being evenly distributed over the screen.
  • Con:
    NVIDIA G-Sync doesn't work with AMD video cards.
Product Expert monitors

The Asus PG279Q allows you to oversee the playing field unlike any other model. The G-Sync technology prevents stuttering and tearing while gaming, so you can keep an eye on your opponents. In addition, this monitor has a refresh rate of 165Hz, so moving images appear on your screen fluently. Do you often play for a long time? This monitor is height adjustable, rotatable, and tiltable so you always game in a comfortable position. You can see the IPS panel's true colors from any position.

Note: For QHD gaming, you need a powerful video card, such as an NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPU or AMD Radeon RX 5000 series GPU, or an Xbox One X or S.

"Worth the money, excellent quality!"

  • Pros:
    IPS
  • Pros:
    true 4ms response
  • Pros:
    g-sync
  • Pros:
    27inch
  • Pros:
    Nice and fast menu + control
  • Con:
    Minor Backlight bleed

Once you start looking for >=144hz 2k 27inch IPS 4ms there are not many screen's left. this uses the same panel as a similar one from acer.

Usual issues are back light bleed, Which is very minor on my item, and dead pixels (mine had non).

This screen is exactly what i was looking for and the image quality is Superb. Can recommend is to everyone (and i did to some).

Worth the money, excellent quality!
