-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.
Top international reviews
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.
The controls on the side take a bit of getting used to. It's a control stick. Calibrating the screen wasn't difficult but took a bit of time.
The picture itself is solid. The screen is bright enough to give you a tan if you let it.
The cons are more specific to my luck of the draw I presume, but you can also take these as warnings. I can see 5 areas on my screen with a bright light behind it if the screen is white. Four of which are maybe 4 or 5 pixels squared (2 are pictured below). Maybe it's the backlight showing through and the film covering it is damaged? One of them is like a scratch (pictured below) where light leaks through from behind.
Then the top of my screen has a slightly warmer hue to it than the rest, similar to that of mild lcd burn in. I didn't have this screen for that long and i keep the brightness pretty low.
That said, all of this is only apparent when the screen is white in those affected areas. I do have 1 dead pixel directly in the middle, but only when the screen is dark.
I'm writing this 3 days after my amazon return window closed as i got to opening the package late so RIP me.
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.
Tried different cables, devices, same issue. It appears the panel died and I'll need to contact ASUS support to have it repaired or replaced. It's a decent monitor for the price if you want to push 1080p gaming, otherwise I'd recommend keeping the original box and crossing your fingers for a year.
It's a shame because it has other good points. I really like that it's 1080p and not bigger to maintain that FPS advantage in competitive gaming. The colors and brightness are the best I've ever had, superior to another IPS I use, an MX279H. It enhanced my gaming experience but I also saw videos in a literal new light. 1ms MPRT looked good in games. I like that it doesn't have unnecessary RGB lighting.
However, I expect better QC for the dead pixel issue for the $400 Canadian I spent for this monitor. I've seen the other reviews and I know I'm not the only one getting this issue.
Happy with my purchase.
