Gigabyte M27Q 27-inch 170 Hz Monitor Review: Fast Response, Huge Color

Tom’s Hardware Verdict

The Gigabyte M27Q is a very capable and speedy gaming monitor with few flaws. Though it has a huge color gamut, red is a little under-saturated, and it doesn’t offer extra contrast in HDR mode. But you do get superb gaming performance with 170 Hz and super-low input lag. As a value choice, it’s hard to beat.

Performance-to-price ratio is something we talk about often. While there are many seeking the lowest priced components and some for whom price is no object, most want the highest possible performance for the money.

Every computer component has a market sweet spot where you get most of the speed and power of top-level components for a lot less than the premium price, and it is no different for PC gaming monitors. We’re talking about the elements that gamers shop for: speed, resolution and screen size.

The Gigabyte M27Q ($330 as of writing) packs 1440p resolution into an IPS panel running at a speedy 170 Hz. The picture quality quotient is upped by a wide color gamut and HDR support. But is the best gaming monitor for value-seekers?

High-contrast VA panels make for amazing image quality on gaming monitors, but speedy IPS implementations are quickly moving to a position of domination in the speediest part of the genre. The M27Q opts for Super Speed (SS) IPS, Gigabyte’s branding for IPS tech that achieves lower response times by using a thinner liquid crystal layer and higher driving voltage than standard IPS screens. Our review focus runs at a 170 Hz refresh rate without overclock and supports AMD FreeSync Premium. It’s not an official G-Sync Compatible monitor, but we got the M27Q to run G-Sync (see our How to Run G-Sync on a FreeSync Monitor tutorial). A claimed 0.5 ms response time puts it in company with most 240 Hz monitors.

The backlight is a flicker-free white LED in an edge array that’s specced to deliver over 400 nits brightness for both SDR and HDR content. It also advertises a “Super Wide Color Gamut” on the box, and we confirmed that claim — although there’s a caveat that we’ll explain on page three.

For the price, the M27Q promises a lot of gaming performance and plenty of features for the enthusiast. Let’s dive in and see if it lives up to the spec sheet.

Assembly and Accessories

Unpacking the substantial carton reveals a panel already bolted to an upright. Just attach the large base with a captive bolt, and you’re ready to make connections. The power supply is a small external brick. Bundled cables include HDMI, DisplayPort and USB 3.0. Despite having a USB-C input, the M27Q does not include a USB-C cable.

To keep the price low, (and is is under $350), there are few frills in the M27Q’s design. The monitor doesn’t include an RGB effect, and styling is understated. Build quality, however, is in keeping with higher-priced monitors, and you get Gigabyte’s usual suite of gaming features, like aiming points and timers.

The M27Q is unassuming from the front with just a Gigabyte logo and a tiny white LED adorning the bottom trim strip. The remainder of the bezel is flush mounted with an 8 mm frame around the image. The anti-glare layer is the same 3H-hardness part found on almost all computer monitors. Here, it provides a sharp, bright image with no apparent grain or optical distortion.

There are a few styling cues around back with a shiny polished strip across the top underlined with a thin grill. “M27Q” is molded in below that and in the same gloss finish. The rest of the plastic cover is matte finished in two different textures. Futuristic-looking lines are set around a button for activating KVM mode, which lets you control two PCs connected to the monitor with one keyboard and mouse, and the joystick for controlling the on-screen display (OSD). The upright can be removed if you’d rather use the 100mm VESA mount for a monitor arm.

The stand is very solid with firm movements. The vertical movement has subtle detents, which make it even more positive. You get a 5.2-inch height adjustment plus -5 and 20-degree tilts. There is no swivel or portrait mode. Thankfully, we didn’t encounter any play or wobble when moving the M27Q around. It is very well-built.

The side view shows the M27Q to be a touch thinner than most 27-inch monitors. There are no USB or headphone jacks here. Instead, they’re on the bottom input panel. which includes two HDMI 2.0, one DisplayPort 1.2, one USB-C and three USB 3.0 ports, one upstream and two down. Input labels are easy to see, making connections easier.

OSD Features

Outside of the monitor’s integrated on-screen display (OSD), the M27Q is controllable via the Windows desktop if you download the OSD Sidekick app. You can also create up to  three custom reticles in the app. The OSD, however, offers the full-featured menu.

The M27Q’s OSD looks just like the one found on all Gigabyte and Aorus monitors with a large rectangular window and four columns making up the menu tree. There are seven sub-menus, plus a reset all function. The top portion always shows signal information and the status of various settings at a glance.

The first menu is for gaming and includes Aim Stabilizer, Gigabyte’s term for backlight strobe-based blur reduction. Engaging it means turning off Adaptive-Sync and overdrive. It doesn’t affect peak brightness, like most backlight strobes do, but in our tests, it introduced significant ghosting around moving objects. Aim Magnifier enlarges the center of the screen, just the thing for sniping. Unfortunately, it also requires losing Adaptive-Sync and overdrive.

Further adjustments include Black Equalizer, which brightens shadow areas, and Super Resolution, which adds edge enhancement. Display Mode contains aspect ratio options and has a FreeSync toggle. The overdrive feature here is interesting in that you can’t completely turn it off. It has three levels (Balance is the best choice), plus Auto. In our tests, Auto corresponded to the Balance choice. At this setting, overdrive reduced blur nicely without ghosting.

The Picture menu offers seven picture modes, plus three custom memories for user settings. You can store more configurations on your PC by using the OSD Sidekick app. The best mode is Standard as it offers good out-of-box accuracy and calibration to a high standard. It locks the user into the full native color gamut, which as we found out is very large, over 100% of DCI-P3. The sRGB mode is completely usable though with accurate grayscale, gamma and color gamut rendering. That’s the choice for SDR content if you’re a color purist.

You can get to the Game Assist menu by pressing the joystick once, then clicking right. The monitor has one crosshair included, but you can create three more of your own using the aforementioned OSD Sidekick app. Game Info offers timers that count up or down and a frame rate indicator. Dashboard requires a USB connection and displays CPU and GPU temps, fan speeds and usage stats in an on-screen box that can be placed anywhere you like. If you plan to use multiple M27Qs, this menu has alignment marks available too.

Gigabyte M27Q Calibration Settings

In the Standard picture mode, the M27Q is accurate enough to satisfy most. The native color space is DCI-P3, but you can use the sRGB mode for an accurate display of that gamut. Its only available adjustment is brightness.

For calibration though, the Standard mode offers five gamma presets and three color temps plus a user mode. We left gamma alone but tweaked the RGB sliders for excellent grayscale and gamma tracking.

Here are our recommended calibration settings for enjoying SDR content on the Gigabyte M27Q and what we used for our calibrated benchmarks:

Picture Mode Standard
Brightness 200 nits 41
Brightness 120 nits 19
Brightness 100 nits 14
Brightness 80 nits 9
Brightness 50 nits 1 (min. 48 nits)
Contrast 48
Gamma 3
Color Temp User Red 95, Green 98, Blue 100

When it comes to HDR signals, the only adjustment available is brightness. We found the best HDR quality by leaving that slider maxed.

Gaming and Hands-on

One unique feature included of thee M27Q is its KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch. The ability to control two PCs connected to the monitor with one keyboard and mouse isn’t that common among PC monitors and is almost always found in general use/productivity monitors, rather than gaming ones. In a gaming monitor, a KVM switch makes it easy to toggle from your best gaming laptop, for example, over to your work-sanctioned work PC without unplugging and replugging all your peripherals. The M27Q’s OSD includes a wizard to easily assign video inputs and then switch between them with a dedicated button above the OSD joystick. The USB-C input can be a video connection and a USB upstream port.

With the M27Q calibrated to 200 nits brightness, the Windows desktop looked bright and sharp. Our office has a moderate light level with filtered sunlight coming in one window. We never had trouble with glare or other environmental factors affecting the image. Color looked well-saturated but not overly so. Greens and blues are especially vibrant. Pictures of sky and grass radiated with brilliant hues. Skin tones looked natural and robust without excessive warmth. Detail in tiny fonts and icons was well-resolved, thanks to the screen’s 109 pixel per inch (ppi) pixel density — right at our sweet spot.

Turning on HDR brightened the M27Q’s image considerably, but you can compensate with the brightness slider if it seems too harsh. We only used HDR for gaming and video, not for workday tasks. It offers no benefit when editing spreadsheets. Switchover is automatic and rapid when you select the HDR option in Windows’ Display Settings.

With HDR on we played a bit of Call of Duty: WWII. Comparing HDR to SDR in this game showed a brighter overall environment for HDR but better detail and color saturation in SDR mode. Your selection will come down to user preference. We preferred playing all games in SDR mode. Other titles, like Tomb Raider, looked fantastic with deeply detailed shadows, vivid color and defined textures in this mode.

The M27Q’s video processing was visually perfect in every game we tried when paired with high frame rates. Our GeForce RTX 3090 drove the frames per second (fps) counter to 170 every time. At this speed, there is no hesitation or stutter at all. Frame tears were non-existent, and control inputs were instantly responded to. Blur was also a non-issue.

On a machine running an Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card, the same games ran at around 120 fps and delivered a similar experience. To casual gamers, that additional 50 Hz makes little difference, but more skilled players will appreciate the M27Q’s extra speed. That performance was reliably delivered and never wavered in quality.

Our final takeaway was that this Gigabyte is a serious gaming monitor for an attractive price. Its performance-to-price ratio yielded favorable results on the battlefield.

Everything You Need To Know










See Price

Looking for a high refresh rate 27″ 1440p IPS gaming monitor? We know there are a lot of models to choose from, which can make picking the best one for you a bit difficult – here’s everything you need to know about the Gigabyte M27Q!

Image Quality

Unlike most 27″ 1440p 144Hz+ IPS gaming monitors, the Gigabyte M27Q is based on an IPS panel by Sharp that uses an unconventional BGR subpixel layout.

This type of subpixel arrangement is usually found on 42.5″ 4K panels used for TVs and monitors. Its main downside is that text appears somewhat blurry with noticeable red and blue subpixel fringing.

However, because a 27″ 1440p monitor has a bit higher pixel density than a 43″ 4K display, the text won’t be as blurry. Moreover, with proper ClearType settings, it won’t bother most users.

It’s still noticeable if you’re looking for it, so if you want crisp and sharp text, you should consider another monitor with the regular RGB subpixel layout. In videos and games, it’s even less of an issue.

Other than that, the details are sharp and you get plenty of screen space due to the high 109 PPI (pixels per inch) pixel density.

Further, the IPS panel ensures that the image remains flawless regardless of the angle you’re looking at the screen thanks to the 178° wide viewing angles.

The Gigabyte M27Q monitor covers 92% of the DCI-P3 color space and ~95% of the Adobe RGB gamut, resulting in vibrant colors – especially when it comes to green, cyan and blue colors.

You will also find the sRGB emulation mode that can restrict the monitor’s native ~140% sRGB gamut size to ~100% sRGB gamut coverage for accurate colors when watching sRGB/SDR content. It’s possible to adjust brightness in this mode.

Thanks to the monitor’s wide color gamut, wide viewing angles and decent factory calibration, it’s useable for color-critical work as well.

With a peak brightness of 350-nits, the screen can get more than bright enough even in well-lit rooms. The contrast ratio amounts to 1,000:1, which is standard for IPS monitors; You won’t get as deep blacks as that of VA panels, but VA technology has its own downsides.

As expected, some IPS glow is visible as well, but to a tolerable/negligible degree. This also varies across different units of monitors.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) is supported, but you’re not getting the true HDR experience due to the lack of local dimming, which is understandable at this price range. Peak brightness gets a small boost up to 400-nits, which in addition to the monitor’s wide color gamut can make some HDR scenes appear more vibrant.


Moving on, the Gigabyte M27Q has low input lag of around 4ms, which makes for imperceptible delay between your actions and the result on the screen.

Pixel response time speed is also excellent as there’s no visible trailing behind fast-moving objects.

There are three response time overdrive modes: Picture Quality, Balance and Speed.

The Picture Quality mode prevents ghosting at high refresh rates without adding any overshoot, even at lower refresh rates. So, whether you’re gaming at a fixed 170Hz refresh rate or with a variable refresh rate (VRR), it’s the best mode to use.

The supported VRR range is 48-170Hz and the monitor has AMD FreeSync Premium certification. It’s not officially validated by NVIDIA as ‘G-SYNC Compatible’, but VRR works without any issues when using GeForce cards.

Next, Motion Blur Reduction (MBR) is supported via Gigabyte’s Aim Stabilizer technology. It can’t be active at the same time as VRR though; it uses backlight strobing to reduce perceived motion blur at a cost of picture brightness.

While MBR introduces screen flickering, it’s invisible to the human eye. However, those sensitive to flicker might get headaches or eye strain after prolonged use.

The backlight of the monitor is otherwise flicker-free and there’s an integrated low-blue light filter.


The OSD (On-Screen Display) menu is well-organized and easy to use thanks to the directional joystick at the rear for the monitor. Alternatively, you can use the OSD Sidekick desktop application.

Useful features include various picture presets (Standard, FPS, RTS/RPG, Movie, Reader, sRGB and three customizable modes), on-screen timers, a refresh rate tracker, custom crosshairs and Black Equalizer (improves visibility in darker scenes).

Besides the standard image settings (brightness, contrast, color temperature, aspect ratio, etc.), you’ll find advanced adjustment tools, such as gamma, sharpness and Color Vibrance.

If you connect the Gigabyte M27Q monitor to your PC via a USB cable, you can use the Dashboard feature that’ll show your system’s performance on the screen (CPU/GPU utilization, temperature, etc. ).

Picture in Picture and Picture by Picture modes are supported as well.

Design & Connectivity

The stand of the monitor is sturdy and offers height adjustment up to 130mm, tilt by -5°/20° and 100x100mm VESA mount compatibility.

Connectivity options include two HDMI 2.0 ports, DisplayPort 1.2, USB-C (DP 1.2 Alt Mode, 10W Power Delivery), a headphone jack, a dual-USB 3.0 hub and an integrated KVM switch.

For 1440p 170Hz, you will need to use either 8-bit color depth or 10-bit color depth with chroma subsampling over DP.

HDMI 2.0 is limited to 144Hz at 2560×1440. The monitor can accept a 4K UHD signal and downscale it to 1440p (at 60Hz) on the PS5. 1080p 120Hz is supported as well.

On the Xbox consoles, you can use 1080p 120Hz and 1440p 120Hz with FreeSync as long as you have the F02 (or newer) firmware installed.

Price & Similar Monitors

The Gigabyte M27Q price amounts to ~$300.

We recommend getting the newer Gigabyte M27Q-P model instead. It has a regular RGB subpixel layout and a wider DCI-P3 color gamut.

If you’re looking for something cheaper and don’t need a KVM switch, check out the Acer XV272UV.

All in all, the Gigabyte M27Q is an excellent gaming monitor. It boasts a fast IPS panel with exceptional Adobe RGB gamut coverage (and a provided sRGB mode).

Moreover, it offers a height-adjustable stand, a USB hub, a KVM switch, smooth VRR performance, and optional backlight strobing!

However, there are better alternatives in this price range.

Advantages: Bright, fast, clear picture, stylish and convenient
to set up. I play on it and work on a macbook via USB Type-C.

Disadvantages: After 4K Monica the text looks not so clear, but it’s ok.
As everyone else writes — there are highlights on a black background. I can’t see them anywhere else and it doesn’t bother me. I bought it to play, not watch movies — for this, buy oled-tv 4K / 8K

\ Usage experience: less than 9 months0015


Advantages: The picture is juicy
quality cables are included
looks great on the outside

Disadvantages: Frames on the «frameless» design
could be done for this price and turns, but I didn’t need it

Comment: For a long time I chose and bought the one that was written on the site rtings. com as the best of the budget ones, because the more I read the reviews, the more it scared me. Total: 9There were no 0026 dead pixels;
glare is minimal (in the corners, a little more on the bottom left), but I saw them only when I turned on the black background on purpose at night and turned the backlight to the maximum;
the backlight is bright, I had to reduce it, which further reduced the chance that I would see the light again;
The picture quality is excellent. Games played with completely different colors. Everything bright and juicy is a joy for the eyes;
BGR is nonsense to me. I noticed only because I read what it is, but even knowing it does not bother me in any way. Most likely, this will not interfere with the average user; nine0026 170 hz wound up with a DisplayPort cable out of the box, which surprised me, because I did not hope for this and ordered a more powerful cable separately.
In general, I’m satisfied. After the old Samsung s24c650, this one is perfect.
I definitely recommend to buy.

Adding: the monitor can be turned off — press the joystick and press down in the menu that appears.

Advantages: Build quality, good image, refresh rate, usb ports

Disadvantages: Through the hdmi cable from the kit, the frequency in windows 10 settings is a maximum of 144 Hz (Nvidia 970 video card, windows and drivers are «fresh», a cursory search for a solution did not help )

Comment: Generally satisfied, after 60 Hz it is much more pleasant to work.

Moscow and Moscow region

\ Usage experience: less than 9 months0015


Advantages: Looks stylish, convenient setting through the monitor menu or a separate application, I can’t compare it with anything, but as for me, a very decent color reproduction.

Disadvantages: 1 stuck pixel (it is visible only on a certain background and only when a certain part of the screen is light colors, but it is there and it upsets, although this is the norm for such monitors)

Comment: Excellent monitor, switched to it from Full HD (60 Hz), and my expectations about the increase in quality were fully justified. At first, when installing a new monitor and comparing head-to-head with the old one, the new resolution is not very impressive. It can be seen, the difference is there and quite large, but personally I did not have any kind of «wow» effect. BUT! When you start working on a new monitor and drag a window from the new monitor to the old one, you are very afraid of cutting yourself on the «ladders» on each icon and going blind from unreadable text. nine0026 Speaking of hertz, I can say this, at first it gave me aesthetic pleasure just to twist the cursor around the monitor. It sounds silly, but the smoothness of the monitor, due to the increased hertz, is very much felt even by turning the cursor around the desktop, not to mention games.
In general, for me personally, it has become the best purchase in recent years, I do not regret my choice at all.

Advantages: Response time, refresh rate, good combination of diagonal and native resolution, HDR, KVM support

Disadvantages: Not the best ergonomics, BGR subpixels are not for everyone, appearance is also for an amateur

Comment: Bought for work / gaming. Everything suits, but before buying, read about the BGR pixel arrangement. I really recommend it.

Advantages: Handy box with handle.

Disadvantages: HDR is complete nonsense, there is no point in it.

Comment: My copy of the monitor with creepy backlights all around the screen, even at the lowest backlight levels! The screen is painted red at an angle, I did not get any pleasure from sitting at the monitor. For big money they sell disgusting IPS matrices. Dropped it back to the store. Photo of black, brightness at 5 and 10.

June 14, 2021

\ Usage experience: less than 9 months0015


Pros: Meets my expectations.

Disadvantages: A month later, I found the first broken pixel by running uniform background tests. After 2 months, I noticed a second broken pixel during normal operation.

Comment: In general, the monitor met my expectations. I took it as a universal monitor for working with text, as well as games, movies and a little photo editing as an amateur. I chose this model for my tasks based on a detailed review on rtings. There are no perfect monitors. So this model with all the known diseases of the IPS matrix. The only question is how much these shortcomings are noticeable and interfere with you. During normal work, I practically do not see these shortcomings, even broken pixels. nine0026 The first dead pixel was found by tests: a black dot is clearly visible on a red and pink background, while a red dot is clearly visible on a black background. On yellow and white, a blue dot is barely noticeable. On blue, you can only notice it point-blank. On green and blue, this point is not visible even at close range.
After 2 months I noticed the second broken pixel — a barely noticeable gray dot on any background except black. At first I thought it was a speck of dust, but I couldn’t brush it off. Those. dust particles on the screen give a similar effect.
Regarding uneven illumination: yes, it is very visible at night in a completely dark room on a screen with a black background. But as soon as the light was turned on in the room, this problem ceased to be noticeable against the background of another — the reflection of objects and myself.
