ASUS ProArt PA27AC Monitor: The Best Workstation Monitor?!

Everyday Use & Gaming

 

I used the ASUS ProArt PA27AC for around a week for the purposes of this review, with over 50 hours of looking at the screen in its stock form without any adjustments made to the screen.

Next to it, I had a AOC's gaming-focused AGON AG322QCX, a 31.5-inch 2560x1440 144Hz that uses a lesser-quality MVA panel. It's nice to have these monitors side-by-side as I can use the professional/workstation monitor for everything that I'm reading and doing, while gaming on a separate monitor at 144Hz.

 

After using the ASUS ProArt PA27AC for a week, I came to really respect the quality of the image compared to the MVA panel on the right. I had used the MVA panel for around a month as my primary driver to prepare for the upgrade to the IPS-based ASUS ProArt PA27AC, and it was a good way of coming into this review.

 

 

I'm not someone who is going to be like "OMG the 100% sRGB coverage is LYF", but the color reproduction, quality, and sharpness of the ASUS ProArt PA27AC was on-point. Clear, vivid colors and videos that made everything look better... not just text.

 

YouTube videos in 1440p or 4K looked glorious, and so did going through all of my recent photos. Workstation use is going to be hard to come down from, as I have to return this monitor at the end of the review... and I really won't want to let it go, ever.

 

One of the things you notice on the ASUS ProArt PA27AC is the impossible small bezel, that is so thin it makes other monitors look ridiculous. It makes the smaller 27-inch panel feel bigger, even though it isn't.
