TUF Gaming VG27AQ is a 27-inch, WQHD (2560x1440), HDR IPS display with an ultrafast 165Hz* designed for professional gamers and those seeking immersive gameplay. Those are some serious specs, but not even the most exciting thing the VG27AQ has in store.

For the first time in any gaming monitor, Motion Blur Reduction and Adaptive-sync can be enabled at the same time. This new technology is called ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur Sync (ELMB SYNC). ELMB SYNC works with G-SYNC Compatible, allowing gamers to enjoy sharp, high speed frames.

A 27-inch WQHD (2560 X 1440) IPS display for highly detailed visuals and accurate color

TUF Gaming VG27AQ features WQHD (2560 x 1440) panel that delivers up to 77% more onscreen desktop space than standard Full HD (1920 x 1080) displays. IPS technology gives you superior images with outstanding colors thanks to 99% sRGB color gamut and an astounding 1,000:1 contrast ratio. Wide 178-degree viewing angles ensure minimal distortion and color shift even when you're viewing from extreme positions.

Incredibly-fast 165Hz* refresh rate

TUF Gaming VG27AQ 165Hz* refresh rate decimates lag and motion blur to give you the upper hand in first person shooters, racers, real-time strategy, and sports titles. This ultrafast refresh rate lets you play at the highest visual settings and lets you react instantly to what's onscreen — so you'll get that first strike in.

*Selective graphics cards/GPUs can support 165Hz graphics source output (DP port). Please note that Over Clocking function/performance depends on the GPUs or contents displayed. ASUS only provides this function. The performance or any side effect after activation is not guaranteed.


With ELMB SYNC, you can enable ELMB (low-motion-blur technology) and G-SYNC Compatible at the same time, eliminating ghosting and tearing for sharp visuals and high frame rates while gaming. 

Multi HDR Mode

Now you can choose from multiple HDR modes to adjust monitor HDR performance based on the current viewing scenario.

HDR 10

To more fully realize gamers' vision, TUF Gaming is compatible with industry-standard HDR10 high dynamic range for color and brightness levels that exceed the capabilities of ordinary monitors.

Shadow Boost

ASUS Shadow Boost technology clarifies dark areas of the game without overexposing brighter areas, improving overall viewing while also making it easier to spot enemies hidden in dark areas of the map.


The ASUS-exclusive, integrated GamePlus hotkey offers in-game enhancements that help you get more out of your game. This function is co-developed with input from pro gamers, allowing them to practice and improve their gaming skills.


ASUS GameVisual Technology has seven pre-set display modes to optimize visuals for different types of content. This unique feature can be easily accessed through a hotkey or the on-screen display settings menu.

Flicker-Free technology

Flicker-Free technology reduces flicker to minimize eyestrain for improved comfort when you're embroiled in long gaming sessions.

Ultra-Low Blue Light technology

ASUS Ultra-Low Blue Light technology reduces the amount of potentially harmful blue light emitted by the display. Four different filter settings are available to control the amount of blue light reduction.

Rich connectivity

Extensive connectivity options, including, I/O: DisplayPort1.2, HDMI (v2.0) support a wide array of multimedia devices.

Ergonomic design

With an ergonomically-designed stand, TUF Gaming VG27AQ provides tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustments so you can easily find your ideal viewing position. The display is also VESA-compatible for wall mounting.

I paid less than 300 for this item on the last day of the January sales, totally worth it. Been after a 1440p display for some time and this product ticked all of the right boxes. Brilliant for both gaming and media consumption (Even the HDR is impressive).

Fantastic monitor. Colours look great, 144hz setting looks fantastic and very pleasing on the eyes after some tweaking. Highly recommended.

Another high quality product from ASUS that doesn't disappoint. Very bright display with good colours. A big improvement to my gaming with a very noticeable fluidity and increase in apparent fps but in my case more due to not having to scale my old 4K screen down to 2.5K. Recommended.


January 2021

Excellent screen and order/delivery by CCL was fantastic. Definitely recommend the company and product.


January 2021

Whether you are a serious gamer, 4K or edit your own movies, this high resolution and outstanding refresh rate monitor does it all, bright, sharp, just my opinion I think you will have a job to beat it on any level especially for the price. Purchased from CCL Computers, who seem to have put the customer service spot on, advice on the phone, or order, including next day tracked & and time slot delivery by DPD. I have nothing to do with CCL or any connection, just a regular really fussy customer that likes things 100% The monitor I have had for about a month, I highly recommend it if you are a top gamer just look at the spec of this monitor, you wont be disappointed, look at the CCL versatile website again highly recommended by the fussiest customer on the planet, again this is my personal opinion not just on the monitor but the whole package


October 2020

Great valiue gaming monitor


September 2020

Expensive, but worth it.


September 2020

colours are vivid. gets pretty bright. glair isnt much of an issue. the frame rate is excellent for fast past games. tthe stand has ALL of the adjustments. this is what paying for quality looks like.

Alex Bilingham

July 2020

The monitor Is way more vibrant than my last one. the stand has so much adjustment to it you wouldn't want to get an aftermarket one. speakers are meh and shouldn't really be on a monitor like this anyway. at a high refresh rate, the image is still sharp. all in all, I would recommend!


April 2020

After looking around for a couple of weeks I decided to take the plunge on this item. So far it's been a great monitor and a brilliant upgrade from my previous monitor. The colours and contrast are great, and I haven't had any issues with it since recieving it. Delivery was prompt despite everything that is currently going on.
