Design & Build Quality
The Gigabyte G27Q Gaming Monitor is made of matte plastic, while a glossy panel is provided on the back.
It has very thin bezels on the right, left and top, while the bottom has slightly thicker bezels that make it stronger.
Its ergonomic features are slightly impaired. In this you can only make height and tilt adjustments while it cannot be rotate or swivel.
The G27Q is made from a strong plastic panel that does not give a premium feel but gives a lot of strength to your monitor.
In the Gigabyte G27Q you get a large flat 27-inch display, which will make your viewing experience better.
Its large displays are good enough for content creators, in which you can open multiple windows side by side, that makes your work much easier.
However, it has poor ergonomics, and you won’t be able to easily place your screen in an ideal viewing position.
it has an outstanding SDR color gamut with excellent coverage of the Adobe RGB color space.
You get very few bezels in the Gigabyte G27Q Gaming Monitor. So this is an advantage for gamers who loves bezel-less monitors.
Refresh rate is very important in a gaming monitor and the gaming becomes more fun when you get the maximum refresh rate.
In Gigabyte G27Q you get a refresh rate of 144Hz which is quite fast.
But if you have a great graphics card but still want to buy a low price monitor that has a maximum refresh rate, then you can consider Acer AOPEN 27HC5R in which you get refresh rate up to 165Hz.
The shorter the response time in gaming, the better. Response times of 0.5ms to 5ms have often been observed in gaming monitors.
In Gigabyte G27Q you get a response time of 1ms which is much better than 5ms.
The Gigabyte G27Q has a great resolution and size. This allows you to open multiple windows.
In this you get a resolution of 2560x1440p, whose QHD Ultra Wide 1440p resolution helps deliver crisp images.
The G27Q has an IPS panel that provides you with a wide viewing angle but in this you get a low contrast ratio which shows black to gray when viewed in the dark.
Although I did not have so much trouble with its low contrast ratio. But if you want a monitor that provides high contrast ratio, then you should look for another option.
