Product Overview

Asus TUF Gaming VG27WQ1B is a mainstream 27-inch QHD 1500R-curved gaming monitor in Asus'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 swivel 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 is not very bright. Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.
