Design

ASUS is no stranger to making some of the best-looking gaming monitors on the market, with the new ROG Strix XG27UQ being no different. We have the usual ROG style throughout, including the ROG eye and RGB lighting at the bottom -- you'd expect nothing less for one of the best.

The design of the ROG Strix XG27UQ is gorgeous and looks great with my gaming PC, while unboxing it, setting it up, and eventually turning it on and configuring and then using it nothing but all-class and ease.

The monitor doesn't feel cheap, in fact it's pretty chunky when you've got it in your hands and it feels expensive. I'm not easy on my gaming mouse and keyboard when I'm gaming, and it still took the battle of me bashing my mouse around the table without feeling like I was going to destroy an expensive gaming monitor.

ASUS includes a bunch of adjustment in the XG27UQ with tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment all up on offer. ASUS also provides VESA mounting, so if you want to put the XG27UQ on a mount -- you can.

The monitor looks great from the front, but I think it looks better from the back -- it's a shame we can't see more of that ROG style goodness up on the front of the display.

Here's the back of the display -- and see what I mean, there's way more design work that you miss on the back because it's pressed against a wall.

2 x DP, 2 x HDMI, USB 3.0 ports, a USB hub, and a 3.5mm headphone jack for I/O.
