The ViewSonic Elite XG270QG is a good overall 27-inch, 1440p monitor that performs best as a gaming monitor. It has a native refresh rate of 144Hz that you can easily overclock to 165Hz. The response time is excellent, so there's little blur trail behind fast-moving objects, and the input lag is incredibly low, giving you a responsive gaming experience. It also supports G-SYNC variable refresh rate (VRR) technology to reduce screen tearing, which is only available through a DisplayPort connection. As with most IPS panels, it can't produce deep blacks and has poor black uniformity, but it has wide viewing angles. Unfortunately, it doesn't support HDR and has bad out-of-the-box color accuracy, but in SDR, it can get bright and has an outstanding color gamut, displaying a wide range of colors.

Our Verdict

7.0 Mixed Usage

The ViewSonic Elite XG270QG is a good monitor for most uses. It performs best as a gaming monitor thanks to its G-SYNC VRR support, incredibly low input lag, and excellent response time, resulting in clear motion. Its 27-inch, 1440p screen is good for opening multiple windows at once while working, and it can get bright and has great reflection handling. Unfortunately, with an IPS panel, it doesn't perform well in dark rooms due to the low contrast ratio and poor black uniformity, but luckily, it has wide viewing angles if you want to share your screen with others.

Pros
  • Excellent response time.
  • Incredibly low input lag.
  • Great reflection handling.
Cons
  • Bad out-of-box color accuracy.
  • Can't produce deep blacks.
8.0 Office

The ViewSonic Elite XG270QG is good for office use. Its 27-inch screen offers plenty of space, and the 1440p resolution favors multitasking. It has great viewing angles if you need to share your screen with a coworker. Unfortunately, it has bad out-of-box color accuracy, so you likely need to calibrate it. Luckily, it can get bright and has great reflection handling, meaning you can place it in most bright office environments.

Pros
  • Excellent response time.
  • Incredibly low input lag.
  • Great reflection handling.
Cons
  • Bad out-of-box color accuracy.
  • Can't produce deep blacks.

If someone comes across a different type of panel or their ViewSonic Elite XG270QG doesn't correspond to our review, let us know and we'll update the review. Note that some tests, like the gray uniformity, may vary between individual units.

Our unit of the ViewSonic Elite XG270QG was manufactured in November 2019, and you can see the label here.

Compared To Other Monitors

The ViewSonic Elite XG270QG is a good overall 1440p, 165Hz monitor with amazing gaming performance, but it doesn't stand out against similar monitors.

See also our recommendations for the best gaming monitors, the best 1440p monitors, and the best 27-inch monitors.

Gigabyte M27Q

The ViewSonic Elite XG270QG and the Gigabyte M27Q perform very similarly gaming-wise. The main difference is that the ViewSonic is a native G-SYNC monitor with FreeSync compatibility, while the Gigabyte is a native FreeSync monitor with G-SYNC compatibility. The Gigabyte supports HDR, gets brighter, and has more extra features, like a Picture-in-Picture mode, a built-in KVM switch, and a USB-C port that supports DisplayPort and 10W charging.

ASUS TUF VG27AQ

The ASUS TUF VG27AQ is better than the ViewSonic Elite XG270QG. The ASUS supports FreeSync, has much better ergonomics, better contrast and black uniformity, the out-of-box color accuracy is significantly better, and it supports HDR. On the other hand, the ViewSonic supports G-SYNC and has a quicker response time, which is much better at 60Hz than the ASUS, a better SDR color gamut, and it has better reflection handling.

ViewSonic Elite XG270

The ViewSonic Elite XG270 and the ViewSonic Elite XG270QG have similar performance but have some different features. The XG270 has a 1080p screen and 240Hz refresh rate and it supports HDR, while the XG270QG has a 1440p resolution and 165Hz refresh rate. The XG270 has much better out-of-box color accuracy, slightly better reflection handling, and better response time at 60Hz. The XG270QG has much better black uniformity, a better SDR color gamut, and quicker response time at its max refresh rate.

ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q

The ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q and the ViewSonic Elite XG270QG are two very similar monitors. Both have 1440p, 165Hz, IPS panels with native G-SYNC support. The ViewSonic has a better response time at 60Hz, better reflection handling, and a wider color gamut in SDR. The ASUS has much better out-of-the box color accuracy, better ergonomics, and a better contrast ratio.

The accuracy before calibration is poor. Nearly all colors are inaccurate, and the white balance is noticeably off. Luckily, the gamma does a decent job following the target curve, and the color temperature is close to the 6500K target. Even though this is with its sRGB picture mode, colors aren't locked to the sRGB color space, but they're at least less oversaturated than on other modes.
