Expert Rankings

The Gigabyte G27QC may lack good viewing angles and decent HDR performance, but its variable refresh rate, fast response time, and dual G-Sync and FreeSync support still make it a great pick for pro gamers.

Overview

The Gigabyte G27QC is a mid-tier, curved gaming monitor that was announced in mid-2020. The 27-inch display pledges to deliver a fluid gaming experience thanks to a rapid 1ms response time, and with an Aim Stabilizer that reduces motion blur for better visual clarity, players will be able to stay on target even when playing fast-paced games. The monitor boasts a 165Hz variable refresh rate so users should be able to enjoy tear-free gaming, and unlike the Gigabyte M27Q, it features a curved display to offer a more immersive gaming experience. Make sure you get to the end of this Gigabyte G27QC review for a more incisive look at what the monitor has to offer and also find out if it matches up to some of the best-rated computer monitors in the market.

What Is Not on the Box

What the brand doesn’t always tell you…

our Verdict

The Gigabyte G27QC is a great gaming monitor for competitive players, with a 165Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and dual G-Sync and FreeSync support. However, it’s not great for HDR and darkroom visibility, and its viewing angles aren’t great for co-op gaming. On the plus side, it’s lightweight at 14.6 pounds, so it’s easy to move around.
