ASUS ROG Strix XG27UQ Monitor Review

The ASUS ROG Strix XG27UQ is an excellent 4k gaming monitor. Its large 27 inch screen displays razor-sharp images and text, and it has good ergonomics and decent viewing angles, making it suitable for a wide range of uses.

It has a fast response time, low input lag, and a 144Hz refresh rate, resulting in smooth motion and incredible responsiveness.

It requires a graphics card with Display Stream Compression and a DisplayPort connection to achieve such a high refresh rate since it lacks an HDMI 2.1 port.

It supports Adaptive Sync and is compatible with FreeSync and G-SYNC. Its IPS panel has decent reflection handling and gets bright enough to combat intense glare.

It isn't as well-suited for dark rooms, though, as its low contrast ratio makes blacks look grayish.

It has a good wide color gamut and gets decently bright in HDR, but the local dimming is terrible and can be quite distracting.
