"Solid 1440p monitor, could be a little better in low light"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Purchased as a dual monitor to my ROG PG279Q. Overall, really nice screen, and about on par with the more “premium” ROG series.

A really great alternative to the PG279QE, and is cheaper. You get the 144hz experience and it works with G-Sync. Price wise, your mileage may vary, as there are cheaper options for 1440p 27", but I wanted to stick with the ASUS brand since my own experiences have been good.

I wouldn't rate this as 5 stars since there is noticeable IPS glow in bottom corners compared to my PG279Q, but I only see this in low light conditions with dark colors, so not a deal breaker. For me personally, worth the price.

"All you want in a gaming monitor"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Can't complain about anything it's hit all the checkboxes for me, 1440p IPS display with a refresh rate up to 165 Hz it's very hard to complain.

"Great high refresh rate monitor"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I picked this up with 10% off over Labour Day weekend. While the original monitor had an unfortunate few dead pixels, I was able to get a replacement within a couple weeks.

The replacement has been working great. I haven't encountered any issues with it, and the refresh rate and resolution far surpasses what I'm used to working with (going from 1080p 60hz to 1440p 165hz is huge). The colour quality is great as well. I'm not a lighting expert, but my previous 1080p monitors look dull and washed out in comparison. If you're looking for a high quality 144hz+ monitor but aren't sure about jumping straight to 4K, I can definitely recommend this. Thanks to the Mighty Ape team for helping me to get my replacement so quickly as well.

TUF Gaming VG27AQ is a 27-inch, WQHD (2560×1440), HDR IPS display with an ultrafast 165Hz* designed for professional gamers and those seeking immersive gameplay. Those are some serious specs, but not even the most exciting thing the VG27AQ has in store.
For the first time in any gaming monitor, Motion Blur Reduction and Adaptive-sync can be enabled at the same time. This new technology is called ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur Sync (ELMB SYNC). ELMB SYNC works with G-SYNC Compatible, allowing gamers to enjoy sharp, high speed frames.

TUF Gaming VG27AQ features WQHD (2560 × 1440) panel that delivers up to 77% more onscreen desktop space than standard Full HD (1920 × 1080) displays. IPS technology gives you superior images with outstanding colors thanks to 99% sRGB color gamut and an astounding 1,000:1 contrast ratio. Wide 178-degree viewing angles ensure minimal distortion and color shift even when you're viewing from extreme positions.
