Asus ROG Swift PG27AQ 27-inch 4K G-Sync display review

 

The ROG Swift PG27AQ is a 4K gaming monitor from Asus that supports Nvidia G-Sync up to 60Hz. It's a 27-inch IPS display with a 4ms response time and a 10-bit colour panel. Add on a flexible stand with pivot, tilt and rotate support, with a redesigned...

4K, G-Sync and IPS are a unique combination.

High-end pricing for a high-end monitor.

Asus ROG Swift PG27AQ 4K monitor review

 

Asus' PG27AQ is an all-star gaming monitor, but you probably can't afford it.

Like the Asus PG279Q, the PG27AQ is a monitor that is difficult to compare with others because its feature set is so specific. Its only obvious, direct competitor is the Acer XB280HK, another 4K panel with G-Sync. The Acer holds up against the PG27AQ...

Asus Swift PG27AQ 4K Ultra HD Monitor Review

 

4K Ultra HD monitors are becoming almost run of the mill in their popularity across numerous segments of the PC monitor market and as such, many models are also coming out with some pretty specific target markets and the specs to go for them.

G-Sync from NVIDIA ; 6OHz native refresh ; Superb color ; Great contrast ; IPS display ; Looks great

No support for above 60Hz ; A bit weak on connectivity ; Possible scaling issues with 4K graphics

Its flaws are very minor and few, its benefits are great, particularly for 4K gamers and overall ,we highly recommend the Asus ROG Swift PG27AQ 4K Ultra HD Monitor to anyone who wants to have a serious go at 4K or UHD gaming and has a NVIDIA GPU to boot.

Fantastic Monitor!

 

I was hesitant to purchase this monitor after I had heard reviews stating that there was severe light leaking issues. Luckily the item I received was in perfect operating condition. Perhaps the quality control problems have been resolved?

Excellent image quality, IPS technology and G-Sync. If you are looking a high-end gaming-quality monitor, look no further.

Large base takes up a lot of space, but a very small complaint

Mixed feelings

 

I'm definitely a tough customer to please as I want to use these monitors for both gaming AND photography and as far as I can tell there is no perfect 4k solution yet. Update: I completed the return process with Newegg. They sent me a brand new one, 5...

- I got two of these for a dual 4k monitor setup and the thin bezel is PERFECT for this. Very attractive monitor. I have things set up with a slight overlap on the edges so there is precisely 1cm of space between the LCDs. This makes moving the mouse...

- Despite all my calibration attempts, including using a Spyder Pro, the colors still look a little weird. The whites just don't look neutral across the entire screen area and the gamut is just not wide enough. Gamers will probably not care but this is...

Great product with no light bleed.

 

In order to activate G-Sync, make sure you use a DisplayPort 1.2. Otherwise, you won't be able to use it.

Mine arrived and after installing it, I noticed no light bleed whatsoever. I might have gotten lucky because I have read other reviews that just revolve around the light bleed. G-Sync monitor 4K 60FPS 27" screen Thin bezel which make it look even better.

None that I have noticed up to now.

Do not buy! Unacceptable light leaks.

 

Great design Gsync 4k awesome colors

light leaks. way too much. I understand the IPS thing but this is way too much when compared to a $150 IPS 1080p.

Awesome monitor!

 

-IPS glow. Honestly, it's really not that bad, at least the one I got. The lower corners seem to have it a little more, but this isn't the reason why I knocked it down 1 star. I don't even really notice it even with the black background I use, I notice...

-Great screen. I used to not really care about IPS or TN or any type of panel because I tend to be head on with whatever monitor I'm using, but this IPS screen is awesome! -It looks fantastic too sitting on your desk. The super thin bezel(which I'll...

None that I can think of right now. I'll update as I use it more.

Asus Quality Control should be revaluated more and more. For perfectionist buyers.

 

Asus should pay attention closely to the smallest detail even when it comes to screws and symmetry of the product, so future buyers shouldn't regret buying the product. I expect excellence and perfection and impress even the pc monitor gurus who expect...

It's a stunning monitor without a doubt, needs some fine tuning the in brightness and rgb color scheme. Accuracy is an understatement. Good quality power adapter and cord and Amphenol displayport 4k capable. Asus is the only brand I trust compared to...

As a perfectionist when spending 900 us dollars I see even the smallest and little things that may shy away from giving this monitor a perfect 10 out of 10. Example smudges and sticker marks leave traces on the screen of the monitor. Color calibration...
