The Monitor

We received this monitor about a week ago. As of today, you can find it in retail stores for about 1000 EUR/USD, which is a lot of money, right? Well, let's open the box. The ASUS ROG monitor has a design that looks very similar to the other ROG monitors. 




The design of the Asus ROG Swift PG27AQN is characterized by the company's signature Republic of Gamers style, which is bold and assertive. The display panel is thick and robust, featuring an LED-backlit ROG logo, while the stand is wide and tripod-like, with a cyclone design on its neck. The overall look is attention-grabbing and might not appeal to everyone.




Simple screws secure the stand at the the back of the display. This is the only piece of hardware required for this display. Included are DP, HDMI, and power cables, as well as a manual and other odds and ends. On the bottom of the screen, there is a functional 5-way navigation joystick for adjusting settings and the OSD. The monitor has a sturdy and adaptable stand that can adjust up to 100mm in height, pivot 90°, swivel +/- 25°, tilt -5°/20°, and is compatible with VESA mounts of 100x100mm. Its screen has a light anti-glare coating that effectively removes reflections without compromising the image quality.


Additionally, the G-SYNC module comes equipped with a cooling fan that operates quietly. However, if the surrounding environment is silent and the PC is running silently, the fan's noise may be audible. But with headphones, speakers, or other background noise, it is not a problem.


There are several connectivity options available, including DisplayPort 1.4 with DSC, three HDMI 2.0 ports (limited to 144Hz), a headphone jack, and a dual-USB 3.0 hub.


In terms of build quality, the monitor is well constructed. Although the dense plastic panels can creak a bit under pressure, they are sturdy, with minimal flex on the back and bezels. The stand is particularly sturdy and keeps the monitor securely in place. It is adjustable for height, tilt, and swivel, and even rotates 90 degrees for use in portrait orientation, which is good for ergonomics. However, the stand is relatively deep, which could result in the monitor being closer to the user than desired, especially if the desk is less than 30 inches deep. Fortunately, the monitor also supports a 100mm x 100mm VESA mount, allowing the use of a slimmer third-party stand or monitor arm as an alternative.
