Good quality 144Hz, AMD Freesync gaming monitor

Key Features:

  • 27-inch, 2,560 x 1,440 IPS display
  • 144Hz, AMD Freesync support
  • 1x HDMI, 2x DisplayPort 1.2, 2x USB 3.0

If you're looking for a top-quality gaming monitor then you'll want one that supports a 144Hz refresh rate. Even better, is one that supports AMD Freesync, a technology that prevents annoying visual problems like stutters and tears. If you want smooth, 60fps gaming then you need this tech.

The Asus MG279Q has a decent quality panel, too. It uses an IPS panel, so the viewing angle is pretty good, and a native contrast ratio of 1,222:1 is great for a gaming monitor, as is the 0.27 nit black level. It also covers 98.2% of the sRGB colour space, which is very good.

Good connections and a versatile stand, which has height adjustment and portrait mode support, makes this a great all round monitor for all use, not just gaming.
