rtings review
The Gigabyte M27Q is excellent for gaming. It has exceptional response time, low input lag, and a high refresh rate to deliver incredibly smooth and responsive gameplay. Its large, high-resolution screen feels immersive, and it has wide viewing angles so that you can share content easily. Unfortunately, it has poor ergonomics, which makes it harder to place the screen the way you want. Also, it isn't well-suited for dark rooms because it has a low contrast ratio that makes blacks appear gray.

Hoping Amazon will soon carry the M32Q. That's the first serious 32" IPS 1440p panel with 144+ hz.

This looks really good for the price.

rtings seem to consider it very similar to the appreciated Dell S2721DGF. If that last one interest you, you might try staking current Rakuten 15%, 10%OFFMONITOR (if it works this time), dunno if we can stack an extra unidays, etc. The Dell might get in a very similar price range with all that.

I have this monitor and love it. I actually purchased at a slightly higher price ($399) but consider it well worth it. I was debating getting the Dell S2721DGF but kept reading reports of eye strain (which I am fairly sensitive to) and therefore went with the M27Q. The only thing that gave me pause was the BGR pixel layout which is different from typical pixel layouts on most monitors. There were reports that this lead to blurry text, however, I have not experienced this issue. Colour, motion, sharpness... everything is great.

That's a VA monitor, while the Gigabyte Ms have IPS panels. I am partial to IPS because of nice colors and wide viewing angles. Other people may prefer VA for a bit better contrast. Large VA panels are always curved cause they generally have bad viewing angles. Ideally you would check them both in person and see which one you like.

Just bought the Dell one but I'm torn.. this built in KVM sound interesting as I would definitely be using one for WFH. Anyone have experience on the KVM feature? Is it a gimmick or actually smooth to use?

If you like or prefer the Dell, don't worry about this feature (even if it can be a nice addition and this monitor is well rated).

Look for KVM switch on amazon and read reviews to see what people think (I don't have any suggestion as I don't use one, but lot of people do).

I decided this one over the Dell for this plus the fact that precalibration its 9.1 per Rtings and the dell is 5.2

The KVM built in is really useful.

My setup worked by having the keyboard and monitor connected to the monitor and a USB-B cable connector to my main tower.

Then with a USB-C cable (the monitor doesn't come with one) I connected it to my work laptop.

With a single button or two I was able to switch from my home setup to my work setup.

really great if you don't have a dedicated dock with a KVM switch.

Thanks, I just cancelled my original order and placed the new one. I called into amazon support and they said since I was not charged yet I would need to cancel and reorder- for those who want to take advantage of the price drop.

At this new price I think it is very hot as a deal.

Lol - my delivery time sped up too - was Sep 28 - Oct 4 but now it is Sept 22-24.
