Gigabyte G27F2 Gaming Monitor Review: Premium Performance for a Low Price

In today’s gaming market, where relatively cheap consoles offer Ultra HD graphics at 120Hz and 4K TVs are dropping in price, FHD monitors understandably get less attention. However, if you’re looking to buy a desktop display, it’s a fraction of your system’s budget and can deliver high levels of performance. For just over $200, you get a well-made, high-performance gaming monitor with 170Hz, Adaptive-Sync, HDR, and wide color gamut.

The Gigabyte G27F2 is the second version of the G27F we reviewed two years ago. The upgrade includes a 170Hz refresh rate instead of 144Hz, the addition of HDR, and an overall performance boost. The best part is that the prices are a little lower than before. At the time of this writing, his new G27F2 retails for $210, about $25 less than its predecessor, making it a strong contender for our ranks of the best gaming monitors.
