  • 170hz not 144
    Reviewed by mRz - January 1, 2022

    Hello, I noticed that some of the reviews here keep saying that this ia great for 1440p with 144hz... The product title says 170hz clearly so why do u guys write 144hz? I guess at the time you guys bought it, it was 144? Anyways I have the 170hz version and this is definitely excellent for my new PC gaming building. I have an i7-12700k, asus rog strix z690-a gaming wifi mobo, graphics card is decent but I couldn't find anything better since almost everything sold out... I have the Rx 6700 xt, 64gb corsair vengence rgb 3600 ddr4, and it was built on lian li 011 dynamic snow white mini.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Highly Recommend!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Chaos - April 1, 2021

    I was on the fence on whether or not I should get this monitor since it has an LCD display and no adjustable height stand, but I’m happy I purchased it. This monitor really makes colors pop and it perfect if you have a next gen console! Running games at 1440p 120hz is honestly amazing. It’s way more expensive to purchase the counterpart (VG27AQL1A) with the adjustable height stand, so I decided to settle with this. The height of the monitor is perfect (at least for me) so I don’t see a need to adjust it anyways. ASUS also integrated a blue light filter that you can toggle on or off if you’re concerned about exposure to blue light while gaming for long periods of time. This monitor is definitely worth the money! Highly recommend!

  • Excellent monitor, a few hiccups though
    Verified BuyerReviewed by PedroCorleone54 - October 14, 2021

    The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is that I can't give it a 4.5. Mounting this on my wall was easy, however, it did give me some issues after that. It didn't like the set-up I originally had with my other ASUS monitor. Because I stream, I had two HDMI switches for whenever I was streaming, and whenever I wasn't. It seems like the monitor did not like that at all. However, once I directly connected my console to the monitor, it worked perfectly. I replaced my capture card so I could use my monitor to its full potential. After all of this, I am really loving the monitor. The colors are vibrant, and I love that I can get 4KUHD or 1440P. The HDR works really well. Games like Fortnite and Destiny 2 look amazing. If you are willing to go through a bit of a struggle in the beginning, then I recommend this monitor.

  • A Worthy Upgrade
    Verified BuyerReviewed by DrunkenUnicorn - December 13, 2021

    This is an absolutely amazing monitor. I came from 60 hz 1080 to this and the difference is mind blowing. If you are lucky enough to step into the world of RTX 2000 or 3000 gaming, you need to make sure your monitor game is strong. Words cannot accurately describe this feeling. It was very well packaged and super easy to put together. I don't necessarily like the power brick it came with, but I guess it does save some bulk on the back of the monitor.
