The Gigabyte M27Q-X is a midrange-priced 27-inch monitor with a 2560 x 1440 resolution that suits everyday tasks and gaming. Its strength lies in its high refresh rate and quick response time, making it well-suited for competitive gaming. The monitor has an IPS panel that delivers good color accuracy and wide viewing angles which are advantageous for digital photo editing. It's less impressive for HDR gaming and media consumption due to its limited peak brightness and contrast. Casual gamers will enjoy the experience, but serious productivity and media enthusiasts might find it lacking in color volume and HDR capabilities. The stand is adjustable and it supports variable refresh rate technology to reduce screen tearing. It offers sufficient connectivity with multiple HDMI 2.0 ports and a DisplayPort 1.4 but lacks HDMI 2.1. Give Feedback

PC Mag

Zachery Cuevas | August 2022
"The company delivers again with the Gigabyte M27Q X, a 1440p monitor that comes equipped with just about everything you want and need from a gaming monitor. It may not be a 4K panel, but it more than makes up for its lower resolution in performance, bringing a whopping 240Hz refresh rate and a host of unusual features, including an onboard KVM and plenty of ports. It's a great performer, though low brightness levels and a so-so contrast ratio keep it short of top marks."
