ASUS PG27U Reviews

Good monitor but very loud

By Bill K
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2021-07-31

This is an excellent monitor - it has some of the best color quality and brightness on a somewhat higher refresh rate monitor (98Hz @ 4K 4:4:4). That said, it has some serious downsides: 1) It is super loud. The fan on it is the loudest thing in my room. I sent it to ASUS to repair it after it got loud enough to sound like a truck idling outside my window. It's now just moderately loud again. I am thinking about getting rid of it just for the noise. 2) It doesn't do true 144Hz @ 4K. It lacks HDMI 2.1, so it can only do 98Hz, which is okay for most games anyway at 4K. 3) It is expensive as hell.

No issues, great for movies and cyberpunk

I am very, very pleased with the performance of this monitor. Superb for both games and creative tasks. Images are superbly detailed, even at lower resolutions. Great refresh rate for games. Smooth, fluid motion...no lag in screen refresh. I spend most of my time working with graphics and imagery, and this monitor is the perfect solution. I have owned the monitor for a year, and I would purchase again.

Hands-down the best monitor I've ever used or personally even seen. Has some future-proofing tech too that should last me for years to come.

Nice 4K LCD monitor, hampered by no HDMI 2.1

By umgoblue007
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2021-07-26

Overall, this is a nice LCD 4K monitor with high refresh rate. Some of the drawbacks include: 1) Price, 2) Lack of HDMI 2.1 (limited to 4K, 10bit, 98 Hz Refresh Rate or 4K, 8bit, 120Hz), 3) Other cheaper options now available (LG OLED TV's)

Not in stock anywhere anyway
