If you're looking for exceptional HDR gaming and media consumption with a high HDR peak brightness, the Asus PG27AQDM would be a stronger choice, though it comes with a higher price tag. However, for those whose work involves digital photo editing, the better color gamut coverage of the Asus monitor may justify the added expense. The LG 27GR95QE, while less expensive, offers slightly less HDR peak brightness which could affect HDR performance but still provides a great gaming experience. Neither are optimal for productivity due to their lower text quality, but if budget is a concern and HDR performance is less critical, the LG could be a suitable alternative. Give Feedback

"It’s hard to find any fault with the Asus ROG Swift PG27AQDM. Yes it’s expensive, but it’s incredibly good. With a stunning image and next-level video performance, it’s one of the very best gaming monitors I’ve ever reviewed."

Jorge Jimenez | March 2023
"The LG 27GR95QE-B is a stellar display that makes 1440p again the PC gaming sweet spot due to its high 240Hz refresh rate and fantastic latency. However, its low overall brightness and lack of onboard settings keep it from being great."
