Product Overview

Asus ROG Strix XG27AQ is a high-end 27-inch QHD gaming monitor in Asus's 2020 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit IPS panel with 170 Hz maximum refresh rate.
Notably, this monitor supports HDR up to DisplayHDR 400, HDR10. In terms of color reproduction, one can expect above average performance. The included stand comes with tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustments that make for a more ergonomic viewing experience. With a fast 1 ms response time, this display is a good gaming option. Additionally, this monitor can get quite contrasty. It also comes with build-in speakers that make media consumption in a pinch an effortless experience.
Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.

Reviewers from rtings have found:
ASUS ROG Strix XG27AQ is a great all-around monitor. Its high refresh rate, fast response time, and VRR support make it an excellent choice for gaming. Its size and resolution are also well-suited to productivity and content creation. It doesn't perform as well in dark rooms, though, because of its low contrast ratio.
Pros
  • High refresh rate
  • Wide viewing angles
  • Good reflection handling
  • Low input lag
Cons
  • Mediocre contrast ratio
  • Doesn't get very bright

The Asus ROG Strix XG27AQ delivers a nicely saturated image with plenty of depth and dimension. The Dynamic Dimming feature is very effective at increasing the contrast of graphical content like games and videos. The native color gamut is DCI-P3 which is covered over 91% and hits its targets closely.
Pros
  • Excellent contrast
  • Dynamic backlight feature
  • Good color gamut
Cons
  • Lacks HDR
  • Lacks adaptive sync
