Corsair Debuts 27-inch Xeneon OLED Monitor for 240Hz 1440p Gaming
Corsair has hinted at the latest entry in its Xeneon family of gaming monitors. It looks like it could be a hit among eSports gamers. The new Xeneon 27QHD240 features a 27-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 and a refresh rate of 240 Hz.
Essentially, it’s the little brother to Corsair’s first OLED gaming monitor, the 45-inch Xeneon Flex 45WQHD240 that we reviewed earlier this year. Corsair uses his LG panel in his Xeneon 27QHD240, which is similar to the one used in the LG UltraGear 27GR95QE. Additionally, the monitor employs META technology to improve peak brightness, which is often problematic for OLED monitors. is claimed to be able to reach
A 240Hz refresh rate is coupled with a 0.03ms response time and support for AMD FreeSync Premium and Nvidia G-Sync technology. This is the perfect monitor to pair with his high-end GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card. Corsair also claims his 98.5% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space.
In terms of ports, the Xeneon 27QHD240 features two HDMI 2.1, one DisplayPort 1.4 and one USB-C (DisplayPort Alt-Mode). Additionally, Corsair includes 1 USB 3.1 Type-C port and 4 USB 3.1 Type-A ports for connecting peripherals. In other words, Corsair has thrown in everything but the kitchen sink when it comes to connectivity, so we doubt gamers will be left deficient in this aspect.
Given that the Xeneon 27QHD240 uses an OLED panel, some may be concerned about pixel burn-in and overall panel longevity. Corsair seeks to assuage those fears with active anti-burn technology and his three-year “Zero Dead Pixel and Zero Burn In” warranty on the monitor.
