The Pixio PX7 Prime is a very good 1440p, 27 inch monitor. It delivers great gaming performance, with an excellent response time, which results in clear motion with very little blur behind fast-moving objects. It also has outstanding low latency for a responsive gaming experience, and it supports AMD's FreeSync variable refresh rate technology. The PX7 has excellent gray uniformity, great peak brightness, and decent reflection handling, so it's a good choice for brighter rooms. Like most IPS monitors, the image remains accurate when viewed at an angle, but unfortunately, it has a low contrast ratio and bad black uniformity.
The Pixio PX7 Prime is a very good monitor for most uses. It's a great gaming monitor, with low input lag and a fast response time. It's also very good for office use, multimedia, or media creation, but it doesn't look as good in a dark room. It's a decent monitor for gaming in HDR, but mainly due to its gaming performance, as HDR doesn't add much.
This is a good monitor for office use. The 27", 1440p display is great for multitasking. It also has wide viewing angles, great peak brightness, and decent reflection handling. It also has decent ergonomics, so you can easily place it in the ideal viewing position. Unfortunately, it has limited connectivity, with no built-in USB hub.

The 27", 1440p screen is great for gaming. It also has decent ergonomics, great peak brightness, and the image remains accurate when viewed at an angle. Unfortunately, it doesn't look as good in a dark room.
This is a good monitor for multimedia. The great resolution and size makes it easier to see more fine details in videos, and the image remains accurate at an angle, perfect for sharing videos with your friends. Unfortunately, it isn't great for late-night viewing, as it has a low contrast ratio and bad black uniformity.
The Pixio PX is a good monitor for media creation. It has a great resolution and size, so you can see more of your work at once. It also has wide viewing angles, low input lag, and decent ergonomics. It has an excellent SDR color gamut, with great coverage of the Adobe RGB color space used for professional photo editing.
The PX7 is a decent monitor for gaming in HDR, but mainly due to its great gaming performance. It has low input lag and excellent motion handling, but it can't get very bright in HDR, and can just barely display a wide color gamut.
The stand is very similar to LG Ultragear monitors. Unfortunately, it doesn't support the monitor very well, and it wobbles a lot.
The stand has a decent range of motion, so most people shouldn't have any issues adjusting it to their ideal viewing position. The height range is a bit narrower than most similar monitors, but this shouldn't cause any issues for most people. There's an angle guide along the base to assist in swivel adjustments, but this doesn't add much.
The back of the monitor is plain. There's no quick-release for the stand, but it can be VESA mounted. There's no cable management, which is a bit disappointing.
The Pixio PX7 Prime has thin borders on three sides, great for a multi-monitor setup.
The monitor sticks out quite a bit from the stand, but is quite thin when VESA mounted.
The PX7 Prime has okay build quality. It's almost entirely made of plastic, and it can be easily bent. The stand has decent ergonomics, but wobbles quite a bit, so VESA mounting might be a good idea.
Like most IPS monitors, the Pixio PX7 Prime has a low contrast ratio, causing blacks to appear gray, especially in a dark room. These results are very similar to the Gigabyte Aorus AD27QD.
This monitor doesn't support local dimming. The above video is provided for reference only.
Great peak brightness, more than bright enough to overcome glare in most rooms.
Unfortunately, like many similar monitors, the Pixio PX7 Prime can't get very bright in HDR. Small highlights don't stand out in most scenes. There are very few monitors that can get bright enough in HDR to display content the way the creator intended.
Note that in HDR mode, many settings are disabled.
Like most IPS monitors, the image remains accurate when viewed at an angle. This is great if you often share your screen with someone else, or even if you just like sitting close to the monitor, as the sides of the screen remain accurate.
Like most IPS monitors, the Pixio PX7P has good vertical viewing angles.
Excellent gray uniformity. The corners of the screen are slightly darker than the rest of the screen, an effect known as vignetting, but this isn't really noticeable with most content. In near-dark scenes, the uniformity is much better, and there aren't any significant issues.
Unfortunately, the Pixio PX7 Prime has bad black uniformity, with noticeable backlight bleed along the bottom edge especially. This varies between units, so let us know if your results differ from ours.
Out of the box, this monitor has decent accuracy. Some scenes are a bit darker than they should be, and there are some errors in shades of gray and in some colors, but most users won't be able to notice these.
After calibration, the Pixio PX7 Prime is much more accurate, and there are no noticeable inaccuracies.

s.RGB Picture Mode: Standard (calibrated)Adobe RGB Picture Mode: Standard
Excellent SDR color gamut, covering the entire sRGB color space used by most SDR content. Coverage of the wider Adobe RGB color space is also excellent, great for professional photo editing.
s.RGB Picture Mode: StandardAdobe RGB Picture Mode: Standard
Outstanding SDR color volume. Due to the low contrast ratio it can't display deep, saturated colors very well, and like most current monitors, blues aren't as bright as other colors.
DCI P3 Picture Mode: HDR 'On'Rec. 2020 Picture Mode: HDR 'On'
Decent HDR color gamut. It can display a wide color gamut, but coverage of the DCI-P3 color space used by most of today's HDR content is only decent.
DCI P3 Picture Mode: HDR 'On'Rec. 2020 Picture Mode: HDR 'On'
Mediocre HDR color volume. It can't display bright, saturated colors in HDR, and is limited by the low contrast ratio.
There are no signs of image retention on the Pixio PX7 Prime, even immediately after displaying our high-contrast, static test image for ten minutes.
Excellent gradient handling, with very little banding. The PX7 Prime can only accept a 10-bit signal with the "HDR" setting turned "On", which limits the settings that can be adjusted. With this setting off, this monitor can only display an 8-bit signal, and there's a bit more noticeable banding.
Unfortunately, there are some signs of color bleed on this monitor. Although this isn't very noticeable with most content, it might be an issue for media creators.
Decent reflection handling, similar to the LG 27GL850-B. Bright glare from a window might still be an issue in some rooms, but it's bright enough to overcome most glare.
|Mode||Response Time Chart||Motion Blur Photo|
The Pixio PX7 Prime has an excellent response time. We recommend the 'Middle' setting for the response time overdrive, as the 'High' setting has noticeably more overshoot, but only a slightly faster response time. This results in clear motion, with little blur behind fast-moving objects and almost no noticeable motion artifacts. Although the response time isn't quite as fast as the Gigabyte Aorus AD27QD, there's less overshoot, resulting in less-noticeable ghosting behind fast-moving objects.
Note: After receiving multiple requests, we decided to also measure the response time at 144Hz. Although some transitions are slightly faster, overall there's not much difference.
The backlight is completely flicker-free, which is great. Unlike the Gigabyte Aorus AD27QD, there's no black frame insertion feature, though.
The Pixio PX7 Prime has an excellent fast refresh rate, and it supports AMD's FreeSync variable refresh rate technology.
There have been a few reports of ghosting issues when using this monitor with an NVIDIA card and G-SYNC compatibility manually enabled. During our testing, we didn't experience any issues with this, but let us know in the discussions below if you do.
Over HDMI, the Pixio PX7 Prime is limited to a refresh rate of 144Hz.
Outstanding low input lag, resulting in an extremely responsive gaming experience. The 60Hz input lag is also excellent, great for console gaming.
