What customers say about "Key Specs"
AOC AGON AG271QG 27" Widescreen IPS LED Black Multimedia Monitor
  • A great IPS screen with high 165 refresh rate, more than I actually need
  • Colours very impressive, combined with the resolution, very sharp images.
  • I can work at my desk and then flip the screen towards my bed and watch the amazing screen.
  • Really awful screen tearing with this monitor for some reason.
  • The gsync worked fine, though there were occasional drops in signal, with the screen flicking black for a moment.
ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q 27-inch Gaming Monitor
  • FPS feels supremely different with the big peripheral focus, and the multi-tasking for everyday use it helpful.
  • Very nice monitor overall. Clear picture, and 21:9 in this package is just really neat.

What customers say about "Display"
AOC AGON AG271QG 27" Widescreen IPS LED Black Multimedia Monitor
  • So, all-in-all, this is a great monitor for those looking for good colours, high refresh-rate and an increase in pixel density over a 1080p display. Very happy.
  • The display is fantastic and its worth the extra coin for G-sync.
  • A bright and vibrant display. Looks amazing.
  • Terrible yellowing in the corners on dark scenes (backlight bleed), even when I turned the monitor brightness to a low setting.
  • I did not like the saturation of colors.
ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q 27-inch Gaming Monitor
  • The brightness retention is really good. My old 27" Asus' screen becomes a lot darker when you look at the monitor slightly from above and a lot brighter when looking from below.

What customers say about "Features"
AOC AGON AG271QG 27" Widescreen IPS LED Black Multimedia Monitor
  • Build quality - awesome. Heavy, sturdy and even has a headphone hanger built in
  • Flicker-Free technology reduces my eyes pain. Recommended!
  • Height adjustable stand is must have if you want healthy spine
  • The monitor has built in speakers which are pretty poor but it's not an issue for me since I use headphones for gaming.
  • I'm sorry but the speakers are crap.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
AOC AGON AG271QG 27" Widescreen IPS LED Black Multimedia Monitor
  • Both UK and EU power cables were included along with a displayport, HDMI, 3.5mm audio cable and usb type-B cable to power and transfer data to/from the 4 usb ports on the monitor.
  • Cable management are better than my previous monitor.
  • Display port problem, tried 6 different cables including that display in the box, nohting change.
  • If you like plenty of scope to plug in every single console / PC / media device you own into this monitor at the same time, you are going to be disappointed as there are just two ports; Display Port and HDMI.
ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q 27-inch Gaming Monitor
  • Works as advertised, didn't come with a display port cable kind of a disappointment. Especially since to run 1440p at 144hz you need a display port cable, it does come with HDMI.
