About this item
ASUS ROG Strix Reviews
I highly recommend it.
The monitors features are:
HDR (High dynamic range)
ULMB (Ultra-low motion blur)
1ms response time
I like this monitor for how large it is ("27), it helps with organizing and doing work as you can easily have a word tab open on one side and resources on the other side. Its very easy to read and the brightness is more than good. I have no bleed on this monitor from the LCD which is an issue with some monitors. You are able to toggle the refresh rates on this monitor natively which is useful to conserve its life.
However, dont get this monitor just because of HDR, the feature is underwhelming and the screen appears too bright and the colours too contrasted. The other features like ULMB help with competitive gaming as they reduce blurryness.
The only strange issue that I cant resolve with this monitor is sometimes on bootup, the monitor appears darker for some strange reason. I suspect that sometimes on bootup ULMB is turned on without any previous input and it turns back off when you restart your graphics with (Win + Ctrl + Shift + B). This isn't really an issue for me and it only happens maybe once every few months.
The stand of this monitor is very sturdy and offers a wide range of movement, you can rotate it 90 degrees if you'd like depending on what suits you. I think the weight of the stand removes the need of a VESA mount (which it also has) as its unlikely to knock over, The stand is really heavy. I didn't buy this monitor out of vanity looks but theres RGB lights on the back if you are into that which you can customise.
The settings on this monitor are standard and there's a few buttons on the back to make navigating somewhat easier. Most of the settings are useless to be honest with some lacklustre filters and scope and red dot settings, the only game that I could see you using these in would be EFT (Escape from tarkov) but these are really not needed. The filters themselves take time to navigate to and they are bad in my opinion. The ULMB is a solid feature on this monitor but by turning it on, the monitor gets darker (to be expected as ULMB inserts black frames). I think the feature is very solid and with combination with the pre-sets you can make in the menu, it helps with when you want to use it.
The beauty panel on the back covers the connectors which there are plenty of, there's also a USB hub integrated within the monitor for cable management which is highly appreciated! I highly recommend this monitor but for the price you'd want to buy it on amazon warehouse or find it on a cheaper website.
I got this got £450 and it's practically brand new.
This goes really well with my rtx 3090ti, which can reach that ridiculous 270hz frame rate on a 1440p display!
Awesome gaming monitor but lacks optical audio out
Really like the 4K 120hz gaming on this large screen. It really makes a huge difference. Picture quality is epic. Trying to then link up to an equally epic sound system is hard however as it doesn’t have optical audio out and most sound systems with hdmi pass through are not yet hdmi 2.1. If it had optical out then it would be 5/5.Thomas Rees
On sale is a great purchase
On sale for £280, absolute bargain. 1440p, 165hz, HDR 400Adam Smith
All around quality is good
Very bright and vivid colour the only problem I have with mine is that the LEDs behind my monitor straight up don’t work I’ve tried using the setting built into the monitor and use sync on my pc still nothing.Howard Hamlin
A good investment to a gaming setup. Was worried I'd need a 32" but actually, this fits well and doesn't look out of place. A quality build and very nice looking screen.Thomas Rees
After several months of deliberation i finally pulled the trigger and bought this monitor in prime day. To be honest i have been deliberating about weather it was worth it to upgrade from my 165hz Acer Predetor XB273UGS and i couldn't have been more wrong. It is just a step better in everything, refresh rates, colour, motion handling it just has it all. I have noticed considerably less ghosting on this compared to the outgoing Acer. Overall very pleased and for anyone deliberating about purchasing, just do it you wont regret it.oli
