Product Overview

Asus ROG Swift PG278QE is a mainstream 27-inch QHD gaming monitor in Asus's 2019 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit TN panel that compensates by refreshing at up to 165 Hz.
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.
