    Great QHD Gaming Monitor

    The Asus XG27WCS is one of Asus’s latest offerings in the budget/mid-price range that offers 1440p resolution, very high refresh rate, HDR, curved design for optimal viewing, three input methods, and lots more. My experience using the monitor was overall very positive although the number of inputs on the product listing is incorrect. Inputs: 1x HDMI 2.1 (Product Listing Says 2, which is not the case) 1x USB-C 3.2 1x DisplayPort 1.4 1x 3.5mm Headphone Jack In the Box: - Stand (Height, Tilt, Rotation + Threaded mount on top) - Monitor - Power Cable - Display Port Cable - Zipper Bag + Manuals Setup: Setup is very easy as with nearly every monitor. Just place the stand where you want it, and clip the monitor in. Cord management is as expected with a slot for everything to pass through. The top of the monitor stand has a threaded 1/4-20? Mount for accessories which is great for those that might stream or use a camera/light a lot. The base of the stand also has a phone slot which you can use horizontally for your other thin device. Also included is a zipper bag with the display port cable and a place to store other accessories. Usage: I first tried connecting the display via HDMI as this is what my previous monitor was using perfectly fine to achieve it’s 165hz refresh rate at 1440p. Unfortunately, I was unable to get anything more than 60hz out of this monitor using HDMI. No biggie, I switched to Display Port and everything immediately went to 1440p at 180hz. This monitor also has the option for USB-C input at maximum display settings. The buttons on the back of the monitor to adjust settings and use some of the gaming features are easy to use compared to other monitors out there. I like the fact it has a little joystick for navigation. The display itself has a nice picture with lots of customization depending on your use case or person preference. I really like the amount of presents available in the menu’s which allows easy switching between gaming and casual use. During my use I found no issues with gameplay or causal browsing. It’s snappy with just about as little lag as one could ask for. 1440p at 27” offers a good PPI of 108 which is the equivalent of a 1080p monitor of 20” is size. I find 27” is a great size for most use cases as 32” can be a little overwhelming only a couple feet from your face while smaller can be tough to feel immersed. Pros: - DisplayPort cable included - Good colors, brightness, resolution - 180hz refresh rate capable - Stand features/quality - HDMI, DP, USB-C inputs Cons: - HDMI limited to 60hz? Overall: I would certainly recommend this monitor to anyone looking for a somewhat inexpensive, curved, QHD gaming monitor. With tons of gaming features and a quality stand, it feels like a quality monitor. Despite my issues with HDMI, I find the number of inputs above average for the price with some monitors limiting you to two input methods so having three is great to see for a monitor of this price.

    A Great Budget-Friendly Gaming Monitor!

    Do you need a budget-friendly gaming monitor with a 2k resolution and high refresh rate? If that sounds enticing, I would certainly look into this model. While it may not be the brightest monitor or have the best HDR, this is a solid gaming monitor for those who have a budget in mind. This is my review of the ASUS - ROG Strix 27” Curved Gaming Monitor. *TLDR at the bottom ===================== IN THE BOX/SETUP: In the box, you get a monitor power cable, display port cable, ASUS small storage bag, some documentation, and stickers. There is no HDMI cable included which I thought was unusual considering most monitors have both cable types included. Regardless, the small storage bag that can be used for cables or miscellaneous item storage is a neat addition! Setup is quick and easy, It’s simply all plug-and-play! Of course, you can set how the display appears, using the monitor’s built-in settings. On the monitor, there are 4 buttons, and a joystick to navigate the settings menu. Do note that you will need to provide your own HDMI cable if you plan to use this for console gaming. ===================== DISPLAY: The gaming monitor has a 2k resolution, a refresh rate up to 180Hz, and a 1ms response time. These features are usually seen in higher-tier models but am glad to see these features get included in a budget-friendly monitor like this one. Of course, not everything is sunshine and roses. The monitor is not as vibrant as some other monitors. At peak brightness, the monitor is seemingly dimmer compared to other monitors. Viewing angles are also decent. This monitor is best used when you sit directly in front of it. Viewing the image from a different angle does “wash” away the image. This gaming monitor uses a VA panel which is the reason for the aforementioned items but that doesn’t take away from its performance and crisp quality. ===================== PERFORMANCE: Performance-wise, the monitor performs well. I mostly tested the monitor in Destiny 2. I’m a quality over-performance person but I did want to max out the monitor's refresh rate. I adjusted a couple of in-game settings and obtained the 180Hz refresh rate, which to the eye, gameplay appeared buttery smooth. I also did the opposite and maxed out the graphics and even with the maxed-out graphics, I was averaging about 125 FPS. I also love the deep colors that the monitor provides! ===================== CONCLUSION: In conclusion, this is a solid gaming monitor that doesn’t break the bank. The 2k display and up to 180Hz refresh allow for buttery smooth gameplay with crisp quality. This gaming monitor is best placed in front since viewing the monitor from an angle does tend to “wash” away the image. The monitor is also not the brightest but if you don’t mind these two minor nuances, I recommend you give this one a shot!
