The most popular inch size in the best quality

Monitors are getting bigger to display more at once, but the 27 inch monitor in particular seems to be a perfect size. Both Full HD and 4K look good, and it’s still big enough to fit on most desktops. So we’ve brought you three of the best 27-inch monitors here.

Our main pick is the ASUS ROG Strix XG279Q, which scores points in the overall package and plays into the hands of gamers in particular. The Odyssey G7 from Samsung can also be found in this list, as it can also shine in all areas and even still delivers 240Hz. The LG 27UK650-W is especially interesting for the creative field thanks to its 4K resolution.

The ASUS ROG Strix XG279Q convinces with many great features that not only impress gamers. 144Hz refresh rate and a response time of 1ms, as well as VRR, FreeSync and G-Sync support make the monitor the perfect gaming companion. Due to the IPS panel, colors are displayed excellently and even if the screen does not get bright enough with 480 cd/m², the sRGB color space is sufficiently covered.

Excellent for all fields: Samsung Odyssey G7

  • Great contrast ratio
  • Very low input lag
  • FreeSync and G-Sync
  • low viewing angle
  • HDR content does not become bright enough

The Odyssey G7 from Samsung is one of the best 27-inch monitors, as the overall package is excellent in all areas. The built-in VA panel can display deep blacks, which is why it performs well in dark rooms. The curvature also creates an immersive experience, which plays into the hands of gamers in particular. They are also happy about 240Hz, a response time of 1ms and support for VRR, FreeSync and G-Sync. If a screen curvature rather speaks against the use in the creative field, the excellently covered Adobe RGB color space can still speak for it.

With a 4K resolution: LG 27UK650-W

  • Wide viewing angle
  • 4K resolution
  • No local dimming
  • Limited HDR support

If you would like to enjoy a 4K resolution on your 27-inch, the LG 27UK650-W might be the right choice. It can definitely convince in all areas, since a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels enables multitasking. Especially for editing photos, the 4K resolution is worthwhile and other creative activities also benefit from the richness of detail that becomes visible. Thanks to the high viewing angle, pictures or other content can also be viewed from the side without having to accept losses. Gamers will be happy about a low response time of 5ms, as well as VRR, FreeSync and G-Sync support. Even though the monitor supports HDR, you don’t really notice anything from it since no large color space can be displayed.
