Description from review
The Gigabyte M27Q is an excellent 1440p gaming monitor suitable for a wide variety of uses. It has a large 27 inch screen that provides an immersive gaming experience and plenty of screen real estate for work. It has an incredibly low input lag, exceptional response time, and a high refresh rate to deliver smooth and responsive gameplay. Its IPS panel has wide viewing angles that make it easier to share content or play co-op games; however, it comes at the cost of a lower contrast ratio, which makes blacks appear gray in dark environments. Unfortunately, it lacks swivel adjustment and can't rotate to portrait mode, and even though it supports HDR, it doesn't get quite bright enough to deliver a true HDR experience. On the upside, it has tons of additional features, including a Picture-in-Picture/Picture-by-Picture mode, a USB-C port that supports DisplayPort Alt Mode, and a KVM feature that lets you control two devices with your mouse and keyboard.

Specs: 27” IPS, 2560 x 1440 (QHD), Contrast Ratio: 1000:1 Response Time: 0.5ms (MPRT), VESA Display, HDR400

Unique Features: OSD Sidekick, Aim Stabilizer, Black Equalizer, Dashboard, Crosshair, Timer, Counter, Crosshair, PiP/PbP, Auto-pdate, KVM

Signal Input: HDMI 2.0 x2, Display port 1.2 x1, USB port(s): USB 3.0 x2, USB C x1, VESA Wall Mounting(mm): 100*100mm

    Was going to buy as it would have been the cheapest 27" QHD USB-C KVM IPS panel that supports Power Delivery.
    But reading through the RTINGS review, it states the Power Delivery is a paltry 10W.

    That is abysmal. Ruins the entire point of USB-C being a single connection to a laptop.

      Ugh yeah what a waste. Only good for plugging in a mobile phone… Because heaps of people most definitely use DeX right?

  •  

    This or Dell S2721D?
    Mostly for office work and general browsing stuff

    •  

      S2721D at $200 is a better buy IMO.

        That's a bit rare to be as low as 200 isnt it?

        •  

          Not really. The last 12 months has seen sales between $200-$240.

    i keep seeing people mention that RGB vs BGR issue or w.e

    simply put, is this really going to be a nuisance for someone who isn't doing media/creative work - how badly can text be impacted?
    outside of gaming my usecase would be having word docs/spreadsheets, sharepoint, ticket systems open for work purposes - so i am going to be reading and looking at numbers all day

    i have seen people say you can use cleartype or w/e to get around it, but that potentially impacts screenshots and captures when sending it to others i've read

      It's not recommended for word/Excel type of task in Windows unless you're happy to flip the screen by 180

      For media creation, it's actually great

      •  

        Read the article, great info. The question I have though, is why do BGR monitors even exist? Are there any benefits to them over RGB?

      •  

        thanks for that, yeah the text looks like its been chopped at some points.

        t for example looks really bad

        i think thats a deal breaker for me imo

      I bought my M27Q this week for $350. It's great for gaming and Windows had ClearType Text already selected after a clean installation. I can't tell a difference between this monitor and my old one. Definitely a good price for what you get.

    Does the support G-sync?

      i bought the monitor in one of the other deals. I can confirm while it is not officially listed as g-sync compatible, you can enable it and it works.

    How this compares with the Dell S2721dgf? Just curious to know..

  •  

    Good for Xbox series x @ 120FPS?

    •  

      Yep, works great.

    I had three of these monitors, all had terrible backlight bleed but were otherwise very nice monitors and the sRGB clamp was great.

    I gave up on trying for a fourth time as my S2721DGF had far less bleeding.

    •  

      Did you return all 3 or what? Didn't think stores took them back here like in the US unless it was a major fault.

      • +3 votes

        Yes, the store was happy to take them back (Scorptec), I don't know if this store would have a similar policy. I was told by Scorptec that these monitors have quite poor quality control and that some people have returned 10+ before getting a good panel.

        Backlight bleed isn't the biggest issue in the world and honestly I almost regret returning them as they were fantastic in other aspects. Unfortunately, it depends on how picky you are and if you plan to use in a dimly lit environment and/or watch movies on it I would probably stay away.

          I'm surprised you didn't have any dead or bright pixels on all 3 as that was another complaint about them. I picked mine up on Friday and have 2 bright pixels that only show up on black backgrounds. They work fine for all the other colours and aren't noticeable in normal use. The backlight bleed isn't too terrible on mine.

            @yippy: I have 1 bright pixel on mine.. deciding if i should roll the dice and get a replacement. next one might have worse issues.. lol
