ASUS MG279Q 27 Inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) Gaming Monitor
  • Excellent!! it's a perfect dream both 27inch and true 1440p resolution!!
  • This monitor is a fantastic bit of kit, the quad HD resolution with the 144hz makes any game look amazing.
  • The games look so clear in 2560x1440 I mainly play rocket league these days and the difference in refresh rate and resolution is big.
  • Colours are rich, and the high refresh rate leads to very smooth movement.
  • The refresh rate and response time are awful, there is a lot of lag on screen.

What customers say about "Display"
ASUS MG279Q 27 Inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) Gaming Monitor
  • Colors, contrast and viewing are great.
  • Getting this monitor was best choice of upgrade from 1080p, fast, colorful, big and way more emersive than 1080p.
  • This monitor makes my game more natural in color.
  • Colour accuracy is good, and the anti-glare coating is pretty good too.
  • The brightness has a little difference between the lowest and highest setting.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS MG279Q 27 Inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) Gaming Monitor
  • The kit has all the necessary cables, you no longer need to look for them separately, as I once had.
  • I had mouse lags issues with my previous moniror, finally after connecting the mouse to this new monitor, there is no problem, magic.
  • USB 3.0 works great with my mouse and keyboard.
  • There's 2 USB3 ports but they are not the easiest to access which makes them a little pointless.
  • USB awkward to get to.
