This 1440p IPS panel comes with HDR for increased luminosity across your more contrast-heavy scenes in games, a buttery smooth 170 Hz refresh rate and AMD FreeSync, to protect your gameplay from screen tearing.

The M27Q monitor is an ideal QHD option for gaming if you need to watch the bank balance — packing serious performance into a budget price point.

At 27-inches with a 1440p resolution, covering 9‎2% of the DCI-P3 and 140% of sRGB color gamuts, the picture is super crisp and colorful. But let’s not forget the super smooth 170 Hz refresh rate that will give your games supreme fluidity.

One of the more user-friendly features that seems to have been buried down the spec list of the M27Q is an integrated KVM, allowing you to switch between different laptops and computers connected to the different HDMI and DP inputs at the touch of a button.

This makes Gigabyte’s panel a great option for those who may be connecting more than one device to their screen (a home desktop and laptop on-the-go, for example). Want to see what the cream of the crop is? Check out our best gaming monitors list.

    Bear in mind that this monitor's panel has a BGR subpixel layout. This could be a deal-breaker for some, especially those who will be working a lot with text, either reading or writing. For gaming, it's perfectly fine and well-priced.
