Taiwan-based company ASUS is known around the world for manufacturing the best mainboards, which makes them very popular with the gamers. The company has just introduced a new gaming IPS monitor that comes with an array of rich connectivity options like an output jack for the headset, audio input, VGA D-Sub, a DVI connector, and dual HDMI 1.4 ports. Dubbed VG27AH, the new monitor comes with a 27” (diagonal) display with full-HD 1920 x 1080 resolution.
The screen has a brightness of 250 cd/sqm, which is standard for an offering of this class. With a 5-ms GTG value and 5 milliseconds response time, the IPS panel on the ASUS VG27AH can be dubbed decent at best, though gamers looking for a serious upgrade would have certainly hoped for something little more substantial. The standard black-to-black rating has been replaced by a gray-to-gray version.
The monitor is fronted by a non-interactive glass with a hint of 3D stereoscopic creds proving to be the LED backlit panel’s redeeming feature. When not needed, the stereoscopy can be deactivated via a cool 3D button. The gaming monitor is flanked by two 3W speakers that will not be providing users with a booming surround sound experience anytime soon. On the plus side, the monitor is fully adjustable for tilt and height. ASUS will reveal pricing for the monitor later.
