    So I experience some weird shit with my 27uq :/. Playing full screen games or alt tabbing makes the screen blinks black like I unplugged the display cable or something for a second or so and then it comes back on with the HDR message in the middle of the screen… Do you have this issue?

    Fine, I guess I’ll wait!

    Should be 32 inch for that price. Hell you can buy a top-end OLED TV for that price , with 0ms motion blur and perfect black

    Am selling mine for 900 and is just 2 months old with receipt

    Nice review… i'm still looking for the best monitor for working AND playing. Tested a 144 hz last year but quickly gave me eye strain while reading/working on text mode (an Acer Predator 27")… does this one have the same problem ?

  6. Jeroen

    oh boy were you wrong… two years later and there still isn't anything that can compete with this panel.

    Can anyone tell me the difference between the PG27U and the PG27UQ? Any recommendations for a gamer currently in the market for a 4k monitor?? 🍻

    I bought this awesome display at microcenter about 4 months ago. hands down the BEST IPS display i've ever owned. 0… ZERO back light bleed/ips glow. absolutely outstanding HDR gaming, and super crisp 4k visuals. They talked about the fan on this monitor… i've never even heard it once since owning it, if i'm gaming for hours or writing/sending emails. I'm glad i waited till the price came down from $2k to $1k in the US. it's absolutely worth it at this price range.

  9. This monitor or a lg cx 48 inch (I can sit back about 4 feet, if needed).

    2 yrs later, HDR still ridiculously expensive… the upcoming ROG Swift PG32UQX is ~$4,000 🙁 I'm just gonna buy a cheap whatever-monitor and wait a few years before getting my forever-monitor.

    God damn look at that bezel! Probably premium specs but the built quality outsude is meh. All you 4k gamers enjoy your 60fps while i game on 120+fps ultra.

    Would love if they re did this monitor with DSC

  13. Rafae Khawaja

    Found this for 575 dollars, is it worth it at that price?

    I have a quick question for anyone kind and knowledgeable enough to answer. Does the PG27UQ HDMI 2.0 port have the capability of displaying all the FPS PS5 can push? I don't want to get the monitor just for my PC, I would like it to be able to utilize my PS5 also, worried that the HDMI 2.0 won't display the full FPS of PS5.

  15. Hayabusa09

    im confused isnt the PG27UQ with HDMI 2.1 supposed to release 1st quarter 2021?

  16. Kev

    19:43 lmao more than three years later……

  17. 02Game

    may I ask for your camera and the lenz model ?

  18. Miles Hamblen

    I bought it and when I power it on power button just blinks white.

  19. Ghostt408

    I need to know does this monitor have built in speakers
