Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The Gigabyte M27Q has a big, high-resolution screen that provides incredible immersion, as well as plenty of screen space for work. It has a USB-C port that supports DisplayPort Alt Mode, allowing you to display a signal from a compatible device and charge it simultaneously with a single cable. Sadly, the ergonomics are poor, so it might be hard to place the screen at your optimal viewing position.

Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following***:
The Gigabyte M27Q offers seven picture modes, plus three custom memories for user settings. The best mode is Standard as it offers good out-of-box accuracy and calibration to a high standard. The ability to control two PCs connected to the monitor with one keyboard and mouse isn't that common among PC monitors.
