-IPS Panel colors and visual look cannot be touched by any TN gaming panel
-27" at 1080p with 144hz Freesync, perfect for my preference of resolution
-3ms response time on an IPS, anything under 5ms is perfectly fine for gaming, unless you are some pro playing First Person Shooters at QuakeCon
-Stand is sturdy, goes up and down, and can twist the monitor if you really want that
-Maybe the sound? But what person that is buying this monitor is actually using it for their main sound source?
Calibration tips (my personal preference): Check out the vivid pixel settings, I really want a bit more pixel definition on the monitor and when i discovered this setting, I set it to 50 and it fixed everything
Brightness: 70 Contrast 75: Color Temp: User Red-92 Green-92 Blue-90 Smart View: Off Vivid Pixel: 50
Been reading on forums that other people have had quality issues with this monitor. I dont think Asus test their products before they ship. If you want to order this, make sure your able to return it if its defective. This monitor cost to much to have defects.
I will say if the pixel issues didnt exist, this would be a good monitor. The picture looked great but I cant believe I got 2 monitors in a row with issues. Do better Asus.
Night and day difference between a XF270H (1080p 144hz TN) and this monitor.
You get great viewing angles and contrast. No browns when there should be black.
No ghosting or any imperfections that I can see. Running a 2700x with 2070 and no problems with any screen tearing at below 144FPS.
All around a great product, I wish it had a USB hub and perhaps a beefier stand that could make the monitor taller off desk.
+Excellent picture once set up. I used my Spyder 5 pro with display cal.
+IPS Panel @ 1080p with 144hz.
+Contrast looks better than my Acer XB271hu
-1080 @ 27 inch is noticeable compared to 1440p @ 27 inches. But I play a lot of fast paced shooters so it helps having lower resolution. BF5 and Black Ops 4 for example still look very good though.
-Horizontal lines with and without freesync on. Doesn't happen often while in game though.(Driver issue? I don't know have to wait and see.)
-I was also experiencing system lock ups since using this monitor and latest nvidia drivers(Again driver issues?)
-Also ELMB mode(similar to Nvidia's ULMB mode) is horrible. Too much ghosting. Almost looks like a double image and blurry. This is probably the biggest issue with this monitor because I was hoping to use this feature. It's also nice and bright with ELMB mode @ 120hz. But again ghosting is a big issue. Can this be fixed by Asus? Don't know but it definitely needs work for future monitors. Hopefully this could be addressed with firmware update without having to send back the monitor.
Also seeing as how this is an IPS panel I was suprised to not have any Black light bleed or ips glow except for bottom right corner (luckily I use 20 brightness level which gets rid of it mostly) but honestly my Acer XB271hu has it worse than this monitor and the contrast level looks way better than the Acer.
If you can avoid using ELMB mode or don't need it and also have patience with Nvidia drivers I would recommend this monitor. I would have loved to give this monitor 5 stars but the ELMB ghosting has to be addressed. I don't know if it's just this monitor but compared to Nvidia's ULMB mode it's terrible.
Decided to come back to this review and give 5 stars after giving this monitor another try.
I sent back my first one because of the horizontal line issues and poor ELMB mode.
My new monitor does not have these same issues so I guess the first one was just bad. This monitor is currently the best monitor to get @ 1080p if you're looking for 144hz and excellent colors. It actually beats my XB271HU after calibration with Displaycal software. The image looks better on this replacement monitor as well like more clearer.
But one issue is IPS glow or Black light bleed in the lower right corner. I don't notice it much and is not that bad but it is there.
I don't see any other monitor topping this one for a while @ 1080p if you're looking for good colors and high 144hz.
Eventually they are coming out with 240hz IPS 1080p panels sometime this year but this monitor is the best 1080p monitor I've seen.

2 issues: I've noticed that when I am waking my computer up from sleep mode it takes these monitors, specifically, about 8 seconds to come on while other monitors come up almost instantly. No problem, its just something I've noticed and hasn't impacted the quality of my life at all. OTOH, I have ordered 3 of these monitors total and 2 of them showed up with a single bad pixel. I cannot notice the bad pixel unless I'm on a site like Amazon, with the solid white background, and I go looking for it. I've never bought a new monitor before with even a single bad pixel, albeit I've almost exclusively purchased Samsung's previously, so this was a new experience for me. It takes more than 5 dark pixels to get it covered under warranty so while it is very, very tolerable I will admit to some disappointment at my first dead pixels ever. Maybe I've just been lucky though and a single dark pixel on 2 out of 3 monitors doesn't detract from my extremely positive experience with the Asus VH27Q.
I bought 2 of these for myself. Then 1 for my wife. I left 1 of my old monitors near my tower and when friends come over I let them compare a quality 60Hz TN display vs these and they usually go home to buy 1-3 of these. Without the comparison it is hard to tell but you get this monitor beside another and they really shine. These monitors are an amazing value for any FPS gamer that also wants to have a good media experience. Highly recommend it, if you are on the fence then get off of it and buy this monitor. It is a frigging gem.
1. Great picture over all. Achieved a 97.5% RGB coverage using my colorimeter.
2. Great gaming performance
3. Works with gsync
1. This is not actually an IPS panel it's AHVA. Which isn't a bad thing it's probably why the cost is low for it's spec sheet. But this thing has some really noticeable ghosting while playing at 144hz.
2. Not really a con but the unit I received had some gnarly glow on the bottom left corner. The other 3 corners where tolerable. (note this is only visible during dark scenes)
3. My biggest complaint is the pixel density. 27" 1080p resolution is too big. A lot of text is not as sharp as it should be.
Overall I'd recommend this monitor for someone getting into the gaming scene and still want to do some editing for videos or photos.
If the ghosting will bother you then maybe pass this one up.
par contre faut pas s'attendre au même rendu dans Red Dead Redemption 2
et ceci est la faute du jeu tout simplement... le rendu dépend des jeux bien optimiser ou non
G-Sync activer avec une carte graphique: Asus GTX Rog Strix NVidia 1070 ti
je n'ai pas tester avec et sans , je le ferai et reviendrai donner mon avis
c'est mon premier jour avec ce moniteur , et j'ai encore certains régales à faire
-Les couleurs sont très bien
-La clarté est forte (trop pour mes yeux) donc réglages maison
-Réglages de l'affichage avec le joystick est agréable
-Réglages en hauteur et pivot du moniteur très facile
-Possibilité d'enregistrer 3 de ces propre régales d'affichage
-7 Modes dans: Game Visual
-5 Niveau Filtre de lumière bleue
-Certains réglages sont grisé ???
-Prérèglages d'affichage d'usine rapide , ce qui donne une référence
-Affichage des FPS à l'écran si désirer (pas besoin de logiciel !)
-Montage et connections filaire facile du moniteur
-Tout les fil dont vous avez de besoin sont compris , HDMI + DVI + Audio et même le fil Display-port
-Haut-parleurs de faible sonorisation...
-Bien emballer aucuns bris
-Pixel de mort au milieu de l'écran , qui se voit lorsque c'est blanc
-Super service Amazon pour les clients , avec qui j'ai u satisfaction , Merci Khaoula :-)
*** Édit pour le jeu Red Dead Redemption 2 ***
Suffit de désactiver V-Sync et G-Sync et de mettre 120 HZ dans le panneau de configuration NVidia
puis faire de même dans le jeu , ainsi que dans les paramètres du moniteur , et activer ELMB
le jeu sera fluide avec 120 FPS
Donc selon mes test , pour le G-Sync + V-Sync parfois vaut mieux les désactiver selon votre jeu
bref c'est un bon moniteur de jeux , n'hésitez pas a consulter les forum pour un bon réglage
de vos jeux et de ce moniteur ;-)
*** Édit 2 ***
Il ne faut pas oublier que c'est du 1920 x1080 n'espérez pas une plus belle qualité d'images
par-contre si vous avez une carte graphique qui supporte mal le 2K , pour gagner des FPS c'est parfait
a mes yeux la seul différence ce sont donc les FPS , parfois c'est pixellé comme par exemple : lecture moins lisse
je n'ai pas encore tester avec des jeux de tir genre Call Of Duty
et c'est là selon moi qu'il y aura une différence
Mais je suis satisfait de mon achat , Merci Amazon .
UPDATE -- replacement RMA has the EXACT same issue! Horizontal lines popping up every now and then and pixels glitching out pretty heavily. Tested both on 2 separate PC's with several different HDMI & DP cables to make absolutely sure. Serial numbers are only a few digits apart, so I assume this was a bad production run that somehow made it through quality control when they were defective.
