Best 1ms Monitors –  In our monitor buying guide we recommend a 1ms monitor as the best gaming monitor for most gamers. Unless you are an esports player or play mainly fast paced FPS competitive games in which case you should consider a  1ms monitor or wait for a 1ms monitor (releasing Q4 2020). Alternatively if you are a content creator or just want the best image quality possible then consider an OLED Monitor.

The ASUS VG245H is a decent monitor for mixed usage. It can get bright to be used in an average lit office and its response time will please most gamers. However, it does not support HDR and it is not good for use in a dark room.

The ASUS VG245H is a 1080p monitor with a TN panel which is great for gaming, but only decent for mixed usage. It has mediocre picture quality as blacks appear gray in a dark room, and the viewing angle is very bad so the sides of the screen look washed out when viewed from up close. The 75Hz refresh rate makes it feel a bit more responsive than other 60Hz monitors for gaming.

2.ASUS ROG Swift

The ASUS PG279QZ is a very good monitor for most uses. Its 27 inch screen and 1440p resolution let you work comfortably, with plenty of space for multiple windows opened at the same time. Gamers should be happy with its high refresh rate, low input lag, and G-SYNC support.

Dark room performance is rather disappointing, but it performs well in bright rooms and it has wide viewing angles, so you can share your work or for some co-op gaming. Color accuracy is good; however, its coverage of Adobe RGB may not be sufficient for professional photo or video editing.


The Gigabyte M27Q is an excellent 1440p gaming monitor suitable for a wide variety of uses. It has a large 27 inch screen that provides an immersive gaming experience and plenty of screen real estate for work. It has an incredibly low input lag, exceptional response time, and a high refresh rate to deliver smooth and responsive gameplay. Its IPS panel has wide viewing angles that make it easier to share content or play co-op games; however, it comes at the cost of a lower contrast ratio, which makes blacks appear gray in dark environments.

Unfortunately, it lacks swivel adjustment and can’t rotate to portrait mode, and even though it supports HDR, it doesn’t get quite bright enough to deliver a true HDR experience. On the upside, it has tons of additional features, including a Picture-in-Picture/Picture-by-Picture mode, a USB-C port that supports DisplayPort Alt Mode, and a KVM feature that lets you control two devices with your mouse and keyboard.


The Aorus FI27Q-P is Gigabyte’s third 27″ 1440p 144Hz gaming monitor based on the same IPS panel by Innolux.

What makes this particular model different from the other two is the factory-overclocked 165Hz refresh rate and the inclusion of DisplayPort 1.4, which allows for 10-bit color with 1440p at a refresh rate of over 120Hz.

Keep in mind that the Aorus FI27Q (without ‘-P’) is a different monitor; it is the successor to the older Aorus AD27QD model. Both of them have a native refresh rate of 144Hz and DisplayPort 1.2, but the FI27Q can be overclocked to 165Hz with 8-bit color depth.

5.SAMSUNG Odyssey G5

The Samsung Odyssey G5 is a good gaming monitor. It has a large screen and high resolution, great for playing atmospheric games like RPGs. Motion handling is good, as it has a high refresh rate and quick response time to make fast motion look clear and buttery smooth.

Its input lag is exceptionally low, and it supports variable refresh rate technology to reduce screen tearing. Sadly, it has terrible ergonomics and sub-par viewing angles, so it isn’t the best option for co-op gaming.
