Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The Razer Raptor 27 165Hz is very good for most uses. It has a high refresh rate with FreeSync support and G-SYNC compatibility. It's good for office use, watching videos, or for content creators. Unfortunately, it doesn't deliver a true HDR experience because it lacks a local dimming feature and has a low contrast ratio.

Sentiment Score 88%
Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following***:
The Razer Raptor 27 has very accurate color and gamma, but its default grayscale tracking is slightly warm in tone. The wide color gamut made everything we played look better, SDR and HDR alike. Contrast is typical for an IPS monitor, with bright whites and decent (if not super-deep) blacks.
Find the original article here.
Pros
  • Wide color gamut
  • Excellent build quality
  • Excellent gaming performance
Cons
  • Expensive for a 27-inch QHD monitor
