High refresh rates have become quite common these days and so have 1800R curved monitor. So it was only a while before someone come out with an high refresh rate 1800R curved monitor, and Asus seems to be that brand. The ROG SWIFT PG27VQ features a TN-Panel and has the familiar ROG styling that’s all dark grey with sharp red highlights. And for the fans of RGB, the rear of the panel has a concealed RGB light panel that shines through the abstract pattern that lines the back.
The panel is one of the brightest that we have ever seen, exceeding those of Acer and Benq’s high-end units. With regards to the uniformity of the panel, we did say that the PG 27VQ sits in the top 3 with delta values that are as low as 6% from the average. Then there is the real world performance in games, jumping from 144 Hz to 165 Hz isn’t that noticeable in most games. There are very few games such as Overwatch where you can notice the difference during moments of rapid movement.
Switching on the overdrive brings that difference to near negligible levels. Overall, the PG27VQ is really a good gaming monitor and with the said, it also has a might price tag for its premium features.
