Look, this monitor is fantastic. After 8 months, I still get blown away by the eye candy this monitor delivers every time I sit down to play a game. The adaptive-sync always works perfectly, incredibly well. I'm getting drop-dead gorgeous color, tremendous detail, and silky-smooth performance.
The one minor irritant is that it drops out of 144 Hz to 120 Hz sometimes. A difference like that is probably not visible to the human eye. But, I recognize it because icon and browser text become ever-so-slightly color-banded. I have created a key combination via the Gigabyte OSD software that displays the refresh rate so I can check it. If it's at 120 Hz, the fix is to turn the monitor off using the monitor's power button; then, turn it back on. It's back to 144 Hz.
After doing a new PC build 8 months ago (July 2019, enthusiast gaming build), screen stutters and tears in Assassin's Creed Odyssey (max settings) detracted. I was getting plenty of frame rate from the video card. My research pointed to the possible need for an adaptive-sync monitor. My video card was cranking out the frames. But they were out of sync with the old monitor I was still using back then. Hence the screen stutters and tears.
What I wanted in a monitor:
Gorgeous color is important to me, so I wanted an IPS-type panel. And, I wanted G-Sync Compatible since I'm an NVidia graphics guy. And, I wanted 2560x1440 (2K resolution - my research showed that my 1070 Ti can handle it). I did NOT want a TN or VA panel. And every other big-name IPS gaming monitor I could find on the internet in the $500–600 range was getting slammed for issues such as excessive backlight bleed, dead pixels, Quality Control issues, etc.
Then, I came across the Aorus AD27QD.
The Panel and Display:
It is an IPS, so I get the rich, deep colors I want (the picture is gorgeous). But, while most of the other big-name IPS gaming monitors in the same price range use an Optronics panel, the Aorus AD27QD uses an Innolux panel with Azimuthal Anchoring Switch (AAS) technology. So, I get the gorgeous colors but not the raft of panel issues that others complain about. The display is bright. And, the colors are well-calibrated out of the box. Color temperature and gamma are almost perfect. And, the RGB spectrum this monitor displays is among the largest percentage of spectrum I’ve seen.
Resolution and G-Sync:
The AD27QD runs at 144Hz, 2560 x 1440 native. And, it's NVidia-certified G-Sync compatible. Now that I have been gaming on it for 8 months, I can tell you that the adaptive sync is worth every penny. It's the best game play I have ever had. The G-sync works perfectly. The picture is beautifully smooth and tear and stutter-free. In Assassin's Creed Odyssey, even the 360° spin when synchronizing viewpoints is completely smooth.
The build quality is outstanding. This thing is very heavy and very solid. The stand is metal. Truly a good build.
At first, I didn't care much about the RGB lights (I thought they were a little dumb). But they have grown on me. Now, it's kinda fun and cool to see them slowly color-cycling when I walk into the room.
Display Port Cable - an Afterthought:
Another user here stated that he upgraded his Display Port cable and that it made a difference in this monitor's performance. My research indicated that a good cable can make a difference where bandwidth plays a role. I one here on Amazon: Club3D Displayport to Displayport 1.4/Hbr3 Cable DP 1.4 8K 60Hz 3M/9.84', 28AWG. It's Display Port 1.4, same as my video card (though, the Display Port on the back of the Aorus AD27QD is only Display Port 1.2; maybe the cable is overkill?). Regardless, I didn't want something like a twenty dollar cable to be a potential cause of a performance bottleneck.
In sum, I’m really, really happy with this monitor. I wish it didn't have the occasional thing where it drops to 120 Hz. But, honestly, that's easy enough to deal with. For the quality of eye candy and game play I'm getting, I wholeheartedly recommend this monitor.
- Came with all the cables needed, including HDMI, Display Port cables, USB hub cable and several power cables for different countries.
- Monitor is well made in terms of sturdiness, the stand is excellent and easy to install with easy tilt and rotate as well as height and angle.
- Has some RGB lights in the back, not too excessive.
- Used it with an RTX 2080 and 144 Hz G-sync worked immediately without much problem via Display Port.
- G-sync was great and looked very smooth in several games I tried.
- Did not notice any light bleed
- Size is perfect, when sitting in front on my desk, DPI is good enough to not notice pixels.
- HDR was also easy to enable, some Youtube HDR videos looked okay. Windows 10 does a poor job otherwise and it is not really optimized yet to have HDR on all the time. Wallpaper looks funny and the blacks and shadows are all off. HDR didn't impress me too much. I guess for real HDR you need OLED TV or a 1000 nit monitor, both of which cost a fortune.
- I tried Destiny 2, an HDR optimized game. Was easy to set up in game (monitor lets you know via OSD that it is in HDR), but it didn't blow my mind away. Mind you, I am coming from an old 1080p TN panel.
- Never tested the USB audio, but it was messing up my default audio outputs. It was an easy to fix in Windows after some tinkering. I rather keep my speakers with optical out connection. I guess for headphones it could be useful.
- Some shadowing artifacts when running the fastest response rate mode.
- Overall colors were okay, mild IPS glow only, not too bad.
- Did not get to tinker with the color balance or calibration (see below). Colors might improve with the right calibration, but never got to do that.
- The fonts on windows had artifacts and had poor legibility at times. I guess it could be fixed by adjusting the settings. Tried several things, could not get them to look right.
Cons: [only one]
$599 monitor and two stuck green pixels right off the box. After trying to get them unstuck with a few flashing videos for several hours, I just gave up. I just could not stop seeing them. They were quite close to the middle.
I don't understand this about modern monitors. My 10 year old Acer 1080p panel never, ever had a dead pixel. I've never seen dead pixels in any of the hundreds of Dell displays at work (I stare at computers all day long) but this 600 dollar monitor comes out of the box defective. Was planning to keep this monitor for at least 5 years.
I really don't care about these manufacturers dead pixel or stuck subpixel policies (some are very elaborate). A dead pixel makes this unit immediately defective in my opinion. It is just poor quality and low QA from the factory. It just should not happen, period. Would you buy a car that 'might' come with three wheels instead of four?
For the price, I expected zero defects. I could live with some of the over-hyped stuff not being too impressive. But a manufacturing mistake is not acceptable. I am glad I was able to return this for free to Amazon and get refunded. Otherwise, good luck going through the manufacturer's RMA hell. And paying to ship a 20+ lb large box.
I would recommend this monitor if it were 349 to 399 and maybe give the dead pixels a pass, but not at $600.
Quality should always come before gimmicks.
