Designed for intense, fast-paced games, ASUS VG278QR is a 27" Full HD gaming display with an ultra-fast 0.5ms* response time and blazing 165hz refresh rate to give you super-smooth gameplay. VG278QR features Adaptive-Sync (FreeSync™) technology to eliminate screen tearing and choppy frame rate.

Speed, speed, and more speed
Lightning-fast 0.5ms* response time with ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur

ASUS VG278QR is the fastest in its class, boasting a 0.5ms* response time to eliminate smearing and motion blur. This lets you react instantly to what you see onscreen, especially in fast paced games – allowing you to take corners like a pro race car driver, or get that headshot like a seasoned pro. There's also the ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur (ELMB) Technology to make objects in motion look even sharper, so gameplay is more fluid and responsive. *0.5ms response time is the minimum based on internal tests. Response time may vary depending on test conditions.

Screen Tearing 7/15/2020 11:29:06 AM

Pros: Actually has ok colors.
