The Asus PG27AQDM (W-OLED) is a premium-priced monitor that excels in gaming due to its very high refresh rate and outstanding contrast, making it particularly suitable for HDR gaming and media consumption. The OLED panel ensures deep blacks and vibrant colors, supporting a broad color gamut, making it a good choice for digital photo editing. However, its use for productivity might be limited by its resolution and size, which are adequate but not exceptional. For competitive gamers, the monitor offers excellent performance, with very little ghosting and a wide variable refresh rate range to reduce screen tearing. Additionally, the monitor has a decent amount of connectivity options, further enhancing its gaming credentials. Do note, the peak brightness could be better for HDR content, and the monitor might not be the best for tasks requiring accurate color representation, like HDR video editing or print photo editing, due to some limitations in its color volume.
