Product Overview

Gigabyte G27QC is a mainstream 27-inch QHD curved gaming monitor in Gigabyte's 2020 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit VA panel.
Its 1500R curvature provides a more immersive visual experience. In terms of color reproduction, one can expect above average performance. The included stand comes with tilt and height adjustments that make for a more ergonomic viewing experience. Additionally, this monitor can get quite contrasty. It also comes with build-in speakers that make media consumption in a pinch an effortless experience.
In terms of drawbacks, this monitor lacks HDR support and is not very bright. Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.

Reviewer score 42%
Reviewers from rtings have found:
The Gigabyte G27QC has a large high-resolution screen that delivers good picture quality. It handles reflections well in bright rooms, and its high contrast ratio is great for dark room viewing. Unfortunately, it doesn't get bright enough in HDR to make highlights pop, and our unit has a significant amount of backlight bleed, which can be distracting.
Pros
  • Excellent SDR color gamut and good color accuracy out-of-the-box
  • Good reflection handling
  • High refresh rate and 165Hz refresh rate
  • Low input lag and fast response time
  • Great contrast ratio
Cons
  • Narrow viewing angles and poor ergonomics
  • Backlight bleed can be distracting

Reviewers from tomshardware have found:
The G27QC doesn't need calibration, but since the controls are there, we tweaked them. Out of the box, the Standard mode delivered a near-perfect D65 color temp with gamma right on 2.2. While we'd like to have a true sRGB mode, it isn't sorely missed.
Pros
  • Sharp, accurate color
  • Excellent build quality
  • Excellent gaming performance
Cons
  • No Nvidia certification
  • No sRGB mode
