    Asus MG279Q 27" IPS FreeSync Gaming Monitor Product Description

    A Universe of Gaming at Your Command
    MG279Q Technology 144Hz Gaming Monitor

    The MG279Q gaming display is built for victory in the professional gaming arena, and features a WQHD panel with a 144Hz refresh rate and wide viewing angles. Its ergonomic design, together with Flicker-Free and Ultra Low Blue Light technology, ensure you stay comfortable during those marathon gaming sessions.

    A 27-inch WQHD display for highly detailed visuals and more onscreen space

    The MG279Q represents a new generation of displays, with a WQHD 2560 x 1440 panel with a pixel density of 109 pixels per inch. You get to enjoy greater image detail and up to 77% more onscreen desktop space than standard Full HD (1920 x 1080) displays. These little details add up to give you a major in-game advantage.

    In-plane switching technology for consistent, accurate colour

    The in-plane switching technology display found in the MG279Q gives you superior images, 100% sRGB colour gamut, an astounding 100,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and wide 178-degree viewing angles for minimal distortion and colour shift so you can share what you see onscreen with those around you.

    4MS Response Time

    Exclusive ASUS Trace Free technology gives the IPS technology panels used in the MG279Q a 4ms response time for smooth visuals without streaks or ghosting, even with today's fast-paced games.

    Incredible 144Hz refresh rate

    With an astonishing 144Hz refresh rate, fast moving visuals pose no problem for the MG279Q, so you can say goodbye to motion blur and gain the upper hand in first person shooters, racers, real-time strategy and sports titles. MG279Q features AMD FreeSync™ technology - it eliminates screen tearing and choppy frame rates to give you seamless visuals and smooth gameplay.

    Gamer-centric features
    ASUS-exclusive GamePlus technology

    The MG279Q features the ASUS GamePlus hotkey with crosshair overlay and timer functions. Select from four different crosshairs to suit your gaming environment, and keep track of spawn and build times with the on-screen timer that can be positioned anywhere along the left edge of the display.

    ASUS-exclusive GameVisual technology

    ASUS GameVisual Technology gives you six pre-set display modes tailored to suit different types of scenarios. This unique feature can be easily accessed through a hotkey or the On Screen Display (OSD) settings menu.

    Advanced connectivity and smart cable management

    The MG279Q has mini DisplayPort 1.2 for native WQHD output, along with two HDMI/MHL ports and dual USB 3.0 ports for convenient pass-through connectivity. A cable management design feature found on the back of the monitor allows you to organize and hide your cables to keep your gaming area tidy.

    Get ready for Gaming marathon with Eye Care technology and extraordinary comfort

    ASUS Ultra Low Blue Light

    The MG279Q also comes with the ASUS Ultra Low Blue Light filters to protect you from harmful blue light. You can easily access and select four different filter settings onscreen through the OSD menu to fulfill your different scenarios.

    Flicker-free technology

    Flicker-Free technology reduces flicker to give you a comfortable gaming experience. This minimizes instances of eyestrain and other damaging effects when you're embroiled in long, drawn-out gaming sessions.

    Ergonomic design

    The MG279Q Gaming Monitor is specially designed for long marathon gaming sessions. Its slim profile and super-narrow bezel makes it perfect for almost seamless multi-display setups. The MG279Q also has an ergonomically-designed stand with tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment so you can always find that ideal viewing position. A quick-release design lets you separate the monitor from its stand so it can be VESA wall-mounted.
