Back in the day, 24-inch monitors were the best ones you could get, and they were great for gaming, working & doing anything else you want with them. Recently, 27-inch monitors have gained a lot of attention and they are being used by a lot of professional gamers and people that work with large data. That’s why, i decided to list the 5 best 27-inch monitors that you can buy right now. Let’s take a look at them.
1. Dell S2719DGF
The Dell S2719DGF is on top of this list for a lot of reasons starting from the fact that it delivers tremendous value for its asking price and its amazing versatility that will make it a steady performer in a wide range of tasks. It has amazing pixel response, fast refresh rates, AMD FreeSync support, great design, and impressive detail.
Design-wise the Dell S2719DGF looks very simple and unassuming as the company has made a nice effort to cut the costs in this aspect. However, I am a fan of this design with slim bezels, very minimalistic but amazing build quality and durability. The stand offers nice options for adjustability and on the back, you will find plenty of adjustability options.
The Dell S2719DGF has a 27-inch Twisted Nematic display with a resolution of 2560×1440 resulting in a good pixel density of 109 pixels per inch. The image was pretty sharp with plenty of detail and it had a nice maximum brightness of 290 nits and a contrast ratio is about 1000:1 resulting in inky blacks.
This monitor has a native refresh rate of 144Hz, but it can be overclocked to about 155Hz, and the pixel response rate is pretty fast at 1ms and an input lag of 11.2ms.
The best 27-inch monitor for this year, a fail-safe option for every use.
2. BenQ PD2700Q
If you are a designer, photo editor, or a content creator and you require perfect colors from your monitor, this excellent BenQ PD2700Q delivers all the performance you need. Amazing grayscale, wide viewing angles, adjustability and tons of presets to go along with its astounding color reproduction, the BenQ PD2700Q is perfect for your job.
The BenQ PD2700Q has a pretty streamlined and minimalist design with its black bezels and thin construction. It looks very utilitarian and office-oriented, however, it is attractive thanks to its textured base and excellent stand, that also provide tons of functionality with its adjustability options.
The BenQ PD2700Q is factory-calibrated and I was a little suspicious about this but the performance was excellent. For starters, it has a 27-inch IPS display with QualHD 2560×1440 resolution, but it has a decent refresh rate and a high input lag that was not ideal for gaming.
However, in the colour department, it excelled, with managing to reproduce 100% of both the Rec. 709 and sRGB colour gamut with plenty of accuracies. With these, it is ideal for CAD/CAM or other professionals that require accurate colours and grayscale.
No other monitor in this category can top the colour performance of the BenQ PD2700Q.

The Asus ROG PG279Q is the ultimate gaming display with tremendous image quality, fast refresh rates, amazing build quality and design, and overall exceptional gaming performance. If you are in the market for a gaming monitor, this should be on top of your list.
The Asus ROG PG279Q looks pretty interesting design-wise with pretty clean and streamlined bezels and back panel, but down on the base and stand it gives the gaming impression, with the ROG logo and engravings. As I mentioned earlier the build quality is excellent and it is equipped with plenty of ports.
The Asus ROG PG279Q is equipped with a 27-inch IPS LED panel with a resolution of 2560×1440 resulting in 110 pixels per inch. The IPS panel provides plenty of colours and accuracy at the same time, straight out of the box with no need for tweaking.
For gaming, it has Nvidia G-sync technology with 165Hz refresh rate and virtually no input lag with the feature activated. It will give you an edge against your competition with its gamer-centric features, and you can even watch your favourite TV shows comfortably, just amazing.

The Asus VG278Q sports a very cool design with some nice touches around, making it stand out from the competition without being an eyesore, with its amazing matte black body and nice texture in combination with its attractive stand. It delivers a good build quality all around, nothing less is expected from Asus though.
It has plenty of adjustability options you can play with for the best angles, and it even has 100×100 VESA mount and a nice set of connectivity ports to complete the package.
The Asus VG278Q is equipped with a 27-inch Twisted Nematic display boasting a 1920×1080 resolution. To go along with that it has 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time with Nvidia G-Sync to provide one of the smoothest gaming experiences on the market.
