Good deal – The LCD screen for the Asus VG279QM “5 stars” computer at 229.90 € (-31%)
The Asus TUF Gaming VG279QM is one of the few monitors on the market to boast a refresh rate of 280 Hz (yes, 280 frames per second). Icing on the cake, the image is well calibrated by default.
The Asus TUF Gaming VG279QM is an excellent gaming monitor aimed primarily at performance enthusiasts. Although originally calibrated, it lacks a bit of contrast and a USB hub to be perfect. It is today the most responsive IPS monitor on the market and remains the only one able to compete with the most powerful TN models. It is a product of choice for cyberathletes. The others will gladly turn to the AOC 27G2U, which is a little less responsive and limited to 144 Hz, but also less expensive.
- 240Hz native frequency up to 280Hz.
- Best responsiveness on an IPS screen to date.
- ELMB (black image insertion) works with both FreeSync and G-Sync.
- Image well calibrated by default.
- Neat ergonomics.
- HDR compatibility.
- Lacks a USB hub.
- No gamma adjustment.
NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude prices from shops whose the VAT policy is not clear (known as “grey” shops, typically in the case of imports from China).
The Lenovo G27c-10 benefits from a good factory calibration which allows it to display faithful colors and an overall good rendering, with in particular deep blacks specific to the VA type panel. However, this monitor suffers from an afterglow time that is much too high, especially for a monitor intended for video games. It therefore has a hard time competing with the AOC C27G1 which, for the same price, is much more responsive.
