    Hi,

    I’m looking to buy this monitor but haven’t found any reviews on it besides your one and would like to know a little more about it.

    Were you able to do any testing on colour uniformity and back light bleeding?

    1. Zhi Cheng says:

      Hi there,

      Sadly, I have already returned the unit. I’ll let you know if I find any resources online.

  2. David says:

    Hi Zhi,

    Thanks for replying.
    Can I please ask why you returned it?

    1. Zhi Cheng says:

      Sorry, I need to be clearer. It was a review unit for loan. After reviewing the monitor, I returned it to GIGABYTE

    Hey Zhi,
    Were you able to get Nvidia to see the monitor as G-Sync compatible? Not listed on the Nvidia site as such yet but the announcements for it said that it would be

    1. Zhi Cheng says:

      Seems like it’s in the pipeline for certification. The press releases states that these monitors are G-SYNC Compatible.

    i am looking to get the g27q monitor, but I am unable to find any reviews of the screen. The specs of the screen are really appealing to me, but not being able to find any reviews are off putting to me. Are there any complications you found while testint the screen youve reviewed? and how were the colours?

    1. Zhi Cheng says:

      I would say that the G27Q meets my expectations. It depends on what you are using the monitors for. If it’s for gaming, it’s more than capable – qHD resolution with 144Hz display and fast response time. If it’s for professional work where colour accuracy is paramount, then perhaps you should look at professional displays instead. The G27Q is good, but perhaps not good enough.

    Hey, i have a question about the g27q:
    How is the response time? Does it give true 144hz experience or did you not test that?
    Thanks in advance

    1. Zhi Cheng says:

      Hi, it performed at 144Hz and works well. What do you mean by true 144Hz experience? For a true 144Hz experience, your framerate must be higher than monitor refresh rate.

    Hi Zhi

    sorry for this dumb question but is possible change the aspect ratio to 4:3 with the menu options of the monitor?

    1. Zhi Cheng says:

      Hi Mike, there is a function on the settings which allows you to set the display mode. Regardless, u can set 4:3 using your OS with your preferred resolution, and the monitor will adapt accordingly
