Product Overview

Asus TUF Gaming VG27AQ is a mainstream 27-inch QHD gaming monitor in Asus's 2019 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit AHVA IPS panel.
The included stand comes with tilt, swivel, pivot, 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.
Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.

Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The ASUS TUF Gaming VG27AQL1A is great for most uses. It has impressive gaming performance because it has a quick response time, VRR support, and an incredibly low input lag. The large, 27 inch screen provides enough space to multitask, and the 1440p resolution delivers clear text. It's good for watching the latest videos with some friends as it has wide viewing angles.
