The KTC M27P20 Pro is an upper midrange priced monitor that excels in a variety of use cases. Its MiniLED IPS panel offers stunning image clarity and superior color accuracy, making it an excellent choice for HDR gaming, media consumption, and digital photo editing, including work that demands precise color matching. With a 4K resolution on a 27-inch screen, text and images will be sharp, benefiting productivity tasks as well. The monitor's high refresh rate and low response time are great for competitive and casual gaming, but hardcore gamers may prefer specialized gaming monitors with even faster response times. Its peak brightness ensures good visibility in well-lit environments, and with support for wide color gamuts, this monitor is also suitable for HDR video editing. Its adjustable stand adds to the comfort during prolonged use. However, the inclusion of HDMI 2.1 ports rather than the older HDMI 1.4 indicates it is designed to handle the latest high-definition content, which could be an important consideration for future-proofing your setup. With a broad VRR range, gamers can enjoy smooth visuals without screen tearing. While its price is higher compared to standard monitors, its performance in professional color work, gaming, and entertainment justifies the investment for users who engage in these activities.

TFT Central

Simon Baker | January 2023
"Gaming and HDR are the two target uses for this screen, and it does generally very well in both. For gaming there are good response times, a single overdrive mode experience for VRR, super low input lag and solid support for latest gen consoles too. The moderately high 160Hz refresh rate provides good motion clarity, and is a nice combination with the high 4K resolution that provides a sharp and crisp image."
