World’s best known mainboard manufacturer, Taiwanese company ASUS has just launched a new gaming IPS monitor that comes with interesting features and rich connectivity options.
The official denomination of the new monitor is ASUS
VG27AH and the 16 by 9 display sports the popular 1920 by 1080 FullHD resolution.
The screen has a 27” diagonal size and comes with standard 250 cd/sqm brightness.
ASUS conveniently omits to mention the normal contrast ratio in the official specifications listed on its site.
The company only touts a Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) of 8 million to 1 and that’s its equivalent to the popular dynamic contrast ratio.
panel has a decent 5 milliseconds response time, but this is a gray-to-gray rating rather than the standard black-to-black, but as most IPS panels, the response time is not the strongest feature and the 5-ms GTG value is just fine in this case.
The LED backlit panel sports some 3D stereoscopic capabilities, but strangely this is not a 120 MHz monitor and the glasses are non-interactive as they don’t come with any batteries.
The new display also features rich connectivity
options such an impressive dual HDMI 1.4 ports, a DVI connector and the old VGA D-Sub along with the audio input and an output jack for your headset. ASUS
VG27AH gaming monitor comes with a 3D button that will deactivate stereoscopy when not desired and it also features two 3W speakers for a modest office audience.
The tilt and height are also adjustable and that’s a welcomed feature, but pricing information is not yet available.
