    I’ve been using a LG W2753VC for quite a number of years now. As I am working from home now I thought I would use it as an office monitor and upgrade onto something much better. After some research I decided on the Gigabyte AORUS FI27Q.Assembly is very easy and it is sturdy with a handy joystick style button for power and the OSD. There is a pointless light display on the back of the stand which I’ll never see but that’s easily turned off in the OSD. It also has a carry handle which I do wish that more monitors hadMonitor card is 8 Gb XFX Radeon RX580 so mid-range but capable of handling 1440p and 1080p running through the DisplayPort.After connecting and start up I changed the DisplayPort input to 1.2 from 1.2HDR as I had already read that HDR on this monitor is poor and the image is better without itI first started Skyrim to test it and the image is awful, muddy and flat, it reminded me of an image when someone uses a projector on a wall and the detail gets lost. I tried in various resolutions but with the same result. It may be salvageable by spending a lot of time creating a custom display from the OSD but I would have thought it should at least given a passable image “out of the box”.I then tried with X4 Foundations and the colouration was much better but to be frank was no better than my old W2753VC so I was singularly unimpressedI would have expected something a lot better at this price point but it’s been over-marketed and over hyped, even the 1ms is misleading as it refers to MPRT as is the HDR implementation. I did know that in advance from reviews, I was more interested in actual overall image quality but with hindsight should have stuck with LG or Samsung.This is a very disappointing monitor indeed, I’ll get some use out of it by using it for the office monitor instead of the LG but it’s a bit of a dog to be honest. I don’t know Gigabyte as a company but I would not purchase anything of theirs again.I’ve given it a few stars as it is functional in that you get a usable screen image and the build quality is excellent. Caveat emptor.

    Was researching quite a lot into gaming monitors when I came across this with relatively little publicity. Price point is cheaper than what you would get elsewhere for the same features and the quality is great.The curve is immersive not intrusive, picture quality is spot on and the functionality that comes with the monitor in terms of adjusting settings etc is great. The build quality is very high, the stand is sturdy and being able to move the screen up and down as well as tilt is a bonus not many at this price point seem to have.I’m yet to come up with any significant criticisms. For the price I think you would be struggling to get better all round performance.
