[Best Buy] [Boxing Day] Asus TUF VG27AQ1A 27" 1440p WQHD 170Hz 1ms LED G-Sync FreeSync Gaming Monitor $369.99 (ATL)

Just picked this up from Best Buy before closing. All time low pricing from what I can see.

Seems to have all the features you would want overall and reviews are positive as well.

Only con seems to be that it isn't height adjustable.

Model on sale is VG27AQ1A, you should fix your original post to indicate appropriately.

FYI, same price as BF (I believe).

I bought this thinking it was the QL1A model. This model only has 250 nits brightness so I returned it.

I think M27Q is a better monitor for the same price

I have this monitor. I don’t recommend because it takes 7 seconds to “load” when you wake-up or turn on the screen. There is no fix for it. It’s quite annoying.

Is anyone having problems adding anything to your cart on Best Buy? I get the error "Sorry, there was a problem adding this item to your cart" on every item. Tried multiple browsers, clearing cache, etc.

Back in stock online but only 2 available at the moment. It was out of stock for few days.

Sale has also been extended until the 6th.

Very good monitor, however - do keep in mind that this seems to be the 'competitive edge' between several vendors with similar specs:

Do also note the following monitors that also sell/sold for the same price ($369.99):

Gigabyte G27Q - 1440p / 1ms / 144Hz (low input lag) / RGB
https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/gigabyte/g27q

Gigabyte M27Q - 1440p / 1ms / 170Hz (low input lag) - BGR
https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/gigabyte/m27q

Cheers.

do these ever sell for cheaper? seems like the perfect gaming monitor based on specs, only thing i can imagine that would be better is curved.
also another question
if you run this as your "gaming monitor" and need a second for discord, youtube, or whatever else, what do you recommend for 2nd monitor ?
