Aorus FI27Q-X Review

Features

The key features of the FI27Q-X are definitely the 240Hz IPS panel with 10-bit QHD resolution. HDR 400 is very much the bottom end of the HDR certification. Think of it like the first "HD Ready" TVs that appeared. It's handy to have, but you definitely shouldn't consider it as the deal maker. The addition of Freesync is much more important to your image quality.

Colour accuracy is a drum we will never stop banging. Admittedly our own requirements bias us in this way, but it isn't merely in photo accuracy or video grading that you can feel the benefits of the full colour space. Your games will thank you too, even the non HDR ones (which are most of them, let's be honest).


Aorus FI27Q-X Review  

Getting a 1440 resolution @ 240Hz certainly will test the bandwidth of your connection method, although we think your GPU will be tested more attempting to fully utilise that. Perhaps Resident Evil 2 or things with the graphics of a mobile phone such as Fortnite can hit such heights, but you're hardly likely to get 240 FPS in Gears 5 @ 1440P.

These on screen crosshair/black equalizer features have always felt gimmicky to us, but we know that they can truly make the difference if you're the type of person who plays competitive shooters for 99% of your time gaming. The FI27Q-X has them if you want, although they're easy enough to leave alone if you don't.

Much more usefully the Aorus FI27Q-X has built in dashboard so that you can monitor all your key system values whilst blowing your enemy to tiny bits.

Lastly an at-a-glance look at all the FI27Q-X has to offer in a handy single slide.

Great review !

It's good to see a decent high refresh rate IPS panel hit the market instead of the slew of VA panels that we've gotten lately, To me VA always looks like someone smeared Vaseline on the screen Quote

Thought the same
Its a shame there were too many complications with the 32inch at the time, would have taken that over the 27 if i didnt have to return it twiceQuote

I have seen it and the nights in games look exactly like they described. I, regrettably, owned and returned the 32 inch version of the G7. I had it for several months and when I first got it the thing looked amazing. However it had that extremely bad flickering issue. I updated thee firmware to "fix" the problem and it turned into a disgusting washed out mess. Not simply that...in World of Warcraft, Conan Exiles, and other games the flickering STILL happened. Yeah...I've seen the G7 and really wished I hadn't. x__xQuote

I very briefly had the 27" G7, I instantly saw the difference between it and an IPS monitor and back it went, To me VA simply doesn't look as good.Quote
