The Asus PG279QM IPS monitor is on the upper end of the midrange price spectrum. It offers a 27-inch screen size with a resolution that provides crisp visuals without being too taxing on gaming hardware. The higher refresh rate is excellent for competitive gaming, providing smooth motion and supporting variable refresh rate to reduce screen tearing. It comes with an adjustable stand and a decent number of HDMI and DisplayPort connections but lacks the latest HDMI 2.1 ports. While it has good color coverage and depth for digital photo editing and is suitable for print photo editing, it's not the best choice for HDR gaming or HDR video editing due to limited peak brightness. For casual gaming, it performs well, but for media consumption, it may not offer the best experience due to its brightness and contrast performance. The matte coating helps reduce glare, enhancing text quality and image clarity, which is beneficial for productivity tasks. Give Feedback
