Best 27″ Monitors (update May 2019)


#1 Acer Predator hXB271HU 

They will certainly remain on the throne of the best 27-inch gaming monitors until the mentioned 4K 144Hz monitors are released, but even after that, they will still be the best choice for years to come until the high price of the upcoming monitors drops as well as until the computer gear requirement for 144Hz at 4K becomes more available. Both of these monitors feature the same IPS panel with the impeccable viewing angles, a wide color gamut that covers 100% of the sRGB color space, and 4ms response time.

#2 BenQ PD2700Q

Practical & stylish with a simple design

For the price, you get a 2560×1440 resolution IPS panel with great viewing angles, two 1W speakers, modes for zero flicker and low blue light to stave off eye fatigue, and more.

#3 ASUS MG278Q

f you’re looking for more affordable gaming monitors that will keep you on par with your opponents, the best choice is to opt for FreeSync monitors. Unlike G-Sync, FreeSync monitors don’t cost extra because of the adaptive sync feature yet they offer an arguably identical improvement to the gameplay performance.

However, the G-Sync monitors also come with a feature called Ultra Low Motion Blur which can further decrease motion blurring but cannot be activated at the same time as the G-Sync. The ASUS MG278Q is the same model as the previous two ASUS monitors except that it maxes out 144Hz, features FreeSync instead of G-Sync, and has an extra HDMI port.

#4 Dell UltraSharp U2719D

Dell makes some excellent monitors, and the U2719D is a fine example. It has everything you need, including HDMI and DisplayPort, IPS panel, VESA support, and a resolution of 2560×1440 to get more done.

#5 AOC Agon AG271QX

You’ve got a stunning 27-inch 1440p monitor with a 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. Also with VGA, Dual-Link DVI, HDMI 2.0, HDMI-MHL and DisplayPort connections.
