To start with the particular specification which will upset some people, the ASUS XG37VQ is a 1080p monitor; so if life starts at 1440p then feel free to move on.  For those still reading, this Freesync monitor supports refresh rates from 48 to 144Hz and can display 95% sRGB coverage.  Techgage were impressed with the quality of the display but when it came to the RGBs present on the monitor they had some questions; the ROG logo that is projected from the bottom of the monitor only comes in red, while the glowing circle on the back of the display supports a full gamut of colours which no one will ever see.  Pop over for the full review.

"Let's cut right to the chase. The Asus ROG Strix XG27VQ is a $350 gaming monitor, 27 inches in size, with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a refresh rate of 144 Hz. We're looking at a VA LCD panel here with FreeSync support, sporting an 1800R curvature."

So it's only 1080p, 144hz, LCD and not GSync? Is the curvature and red ROG LED light that expensive? If it was $250 it would still be an underwhelming product.

Yikes.

While the gaming industry moves to 4k and hdr. PC gaming still on sdr 1080p. That is pretty sad.
This monitor only makes sense for competitive esports on a budget.
Even Nvidia gsync can't get one monitor out this year.
