Bottomline: One of the perfect gaming monitors with customisable ambient lights, amazing color reproduction and a high refresh rate. ViewSonic Elite XG270Q Gaming Monitor is available at a higher price point, but it's worth it.

While choosing a monitor, often you look for a monitor with great visual quality, but when it comes to gaming you don’t want to compromise on refresh rate and performance. ViewSonic recently announced a new Elite monitor that is perfect for both worlds.

ViewSonic Elite XG270Q gaming monitor comes with a plethora of features including 1ms (GtG) response time, vibrant IPS display, and more.

Build and Design

With a new design ethic, the ViewSonic Elite monitor is dominated by all black with quite a bit of RGB highlighting in various parts of the housing. At the back of the screen, you can see a hexagonal RGB ring around the stand mounting bracket. One can customise these lights for static or pulsing rings in various colors. At the monitor bottom, you can see two more RGB strips that can be customised as well.

At the back, there are two flexible mouse bungees that fold down from the back of the unit, which actually worked better than traditional mouse bungees. These mouse bungees are held in place by the weight of the monitor raising the mouse cable off the desk surface and out of your way. A foldable headphone rest is also placed at the back left side.

The 27-inch IPS panel has thin bezels, almost a borderless design. Just the bottom bezel is a little thick for the reason, housing Elite branding. The monitor base is all metal and holds an arm that allows the monitor to swivel up to 45 degrees left or right, tilt between – 5 and 20 degrees, or pivot 90 degrees into portrait mode. The gaming monitor also holds two built-in speakers, so no additional headphones or speakers are required while playing the game or enjoying videos.

Smartly, ViewSonic hid all the ports with an additional cover. When you open that can see all the ports that include two HDMI 2.0 (with HDCP 2.2), one display port, one 3.5mm Audio Out, one USB type-B, three USB type-A ports and a power in port.


The gaming monitor has a 165 Hz refresh rate making it perfect for both gaming from esports casuals, streamers and graphics professionals. The IPS display offers a 1ms (GtG) response time that delivers esports-level performance with seamless pixel transitions and reduced ghosting. With expanded 95% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage, this screen provides the perfect balance of color and speed.

NVIDIA G-Sync certified monitor delivers a seamless and immersive gaming experience. And if you want to use multiple displays for game or content creation, this 3-side borderless display maximizes your viewing experience while minimizing frame distractions.

The ELITE Display Controller is an OSD software application capable of controlling both monitor display options and RGB ambient lighting modes, without physically interacting with the monitor’s OSD.


Setting up the monitor took a few minutes only. There is no complicated configuration to make. Just assemble the stand, then connect the monitor to power and use HDMI or DisplayPort to connect the PC to the monitor.

Elite XG270Q stands out from other gaming monitors. Customisable ambient light gives it a completely different look. The hinge lets you adjust the height, tilt, pivot, swivel the monitor without any extra effort. At the bottom of the screen, right beneath the elite branding, a three functional button is placed to power on/off, choose modes, customize the brightness, and other settings.

For normal PC usage, the display is perfect with vibrant colours, excellent brightness levels and wide viewing angles. For video editing, graphics and other content creation as well, this works perfectly.

To test its gaming ability, we played different games including Halo Infinite, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Ghostrunner, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, etc. The gaming experience was amazing on this display. I didn’t witness any distortion in the video quality, thanks to Nvidia G-Sync the gaming output was fascinating. The screen was able to deliver an enjoyable experience. The colours were looking pretty good, dark scenes were also nice.

Having the IPS panel, the experience with the monitor was immersive. The screen was looking good most of the times, having a pretty good resolution. It was able to produce smooth images even in the most frantic of exchanges. It was able to do great with bright colours, but the dark shades and black colours were deep as well.

It holds two Stereo Speakers that produce rich sound, good for music, video, and gaming as well. Overall, it is a decent monitor that offers a decent balance of speed and picture quality.
