What customers say about "Display"
ASUS TUF Gaming VG27AQ HDR Gaming Monitor
  • The images look fantastic and the 144mz display makes game look to fluid and smooth.
  • The display is also surprisingly light, and the setup is very easy.
  • The display itself has excellent colours and viewing angles, a great display overall.
  • Very good monitor for gaming, colours and picture is great as well as the build quality.
  • My only negative (and this is really nit picking) is that the colour straight out the box isn't that great.
ASUS TUF Gaming VG27BQ HDR Gaming Monitor
  • Excellent, good colors and viewing angles for a TN panel.
  • The brightness is higher than either of my side monitors and the colours better.
  • I normally hate TN panels with the washed out colors and poor viewing angles but that panel is awesome.
  • Amazing monitor, great colors and good brightness management. Good value for money.
  • Perfect for gaming. Not bad for photography either. Nice color representation.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS TUF Gaming VG27AQ HDR Gaming Monitor
  • It connects to the power with an extra adapter.
  • Displayport, DVI and HDMI inputs give plenty of connection options.
  • However i am unable to get sound through the monitors, regardless if HDMI on PC (and yes sounds default is HDMI Connection) or my PS3.
  • Having DP connectivity issues but DVI works well. Refreshrate is brilliant and you can really feel it.
  • The 165Hz doesn't apply to HDMI connections, only DVI and DisplayPort.
ASUS TUF Gaming VG27BQ HDR Gaming Monitor
  • I'm using a DVI connection, and I believe it came with the appropriate cable to do so.
  • It has HDMI DVI and display port options so has no worries in having you xbox or ps3 connected as well as your pc.
  • Use either DVI connection (DVI Cable comes with Monitor) or Display port (cable not supplied). Easy connection.
  • I would prefer strait cable to the monitor without extra adapters.
  • When finally connecting all the cables, the only options that were 60hz and 85hz.
