Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The Lenovo Legion Y27q-20 has a large screen and high resolution that allow you work comfortably. It has good ergonomics and wide viewing angles, making it ideal for sharing content or playing co-op games. Its low input lag and high refresh rate make gaming feel incredibly responsive, and it supports variable refresh rate technology to reduce screen tearing. Unfortunately, the contrast ratio is low and black uniformity is sub-par, so blacks appear grayish.
