Specifications include 1080p resolution, a 144 Hz refresh rate, and a 4ms response time. Curved VA panel with 300 nits of brightness. Includes DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort connections. Has AMD FreeSync technology, VESA mounting and a 3-year warranty.

The 27-inch screen uses a VA panel with good contrast ratio and an 1800R curve. The pixel resolution is 1920 x 1080, and it has a 144 Hz refresh rate with a 4 ms response time. That high refresh rate makes this a great gaming monitor, and it has AMD FreeSync built in, which helps reduce screen tearing during high action video games or movies. The Low Framerate Compensation feature also helps ensure a smooth gaming experience.

The monitor can be swiveled, tilted, or adjusted in height so you can find the perfect image and the right angle from wherever you're sitting. It also has a 100x100mm VESA standard, which means you can mount the screen to a wall or an arm mount with no problem and get even more flexibility.

If you're a MOBA gamer (League of Legends, Smite, DOTA 2, etc), the monitor has a game visual setting that keeps MOBAs in mind with color enhancements for more advanced gameplay. The back of the screen also has RGB lighting you can customize with LED lighting projection in the base.

Asus has it covered with a three-year Rapid Replacement policy.
