What customers say about "Key Specs"

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS ROG Swift PG27VQ Curved Gaming Monitor
  • Great refresh rate when using the displayport. Highly recommend.
  • Great connectivity and all ROG features dedicated to the game make it a must for gamers.
  • Monitor has a lot of usb ports and can connected to PC with displayport for 165Hz refresh rate.
  • Can't get the 165Hz with HDMI cable. Only displayport.
  • HDMI is hardly necessary to mention here, which cuts even worse.
ASUS ROG Swift PG278QR WQHD Gaming Monitor
  • If one thing could be changed for this user it would be having 4 usb-3 ports on the side. This has two placed on the bottom. They are had to reach and too few in number.
