    But......in the dawn of the 4K age.....why on earth is it 1080p?

    Not even QHD?

    Why also, at the mega mega prices of some of these (friend bought whatever the most recent widescreen 40"-ish über-ROG monitor is), do they only have a red LED thing on the base? Surely it should all be RGB, even if it is a ROG product? Their motherboards have it...

    If I'm paying that kind of money, I'd want all the features...

    Because anything 4K is a waste of money unless you have to use it professional in ways of rendering, creating pictures and by then I would say that 4K is about to be outdated in favour for 8k.

    Curved? No thanks. 1080p? Not at that price.

    I'd rather buy a cheap standard 1080p 60hz Asus monitor and slap a ROG sticker on the base haha

    Yeah it doesn't even have G-Sync, I'd expect this to come in at £200-£250 (£250 considering it's ROG so overprice slightly) and £250-£300 for the G-Sync version, I got my XF270HU for £380 last May which I now think was a total bargain.

    Re: Asus ROG Strix XG27VQ 27-inch gaming monitor announced

    As others have said: WHY OH WHY WOULD YOU GO 1080P ON A 27" MONITOR?!?!??!?!

    (Caps intentional to get my point across).

    Put in a 1440P panel, drop the ludicrous RGB lighting (and the price a couple of notches) and you're golden.

    BTW, VA certainly isn't a compromise between TN and IPS. It's wholly on par with IPS, but both technologies each have some drawbacks with regard to the other (IPS: wide viewing angles but poor black level, VA: great black level with narrower viewing angles and a possible tendency to colour shift).
