Viewsonic, a popular gaming monitor company has finally launched the Elite XG270Q high-end gaming monitor in India on Tuesday. The gaming monitor was already available for purchase in the US in early 2021 and was priced at $500. Combining the shipping and import fees, people in India will have to pay roughly Rs 13,000 or $175 more than US residents.
The gaming monitor boasts a 27-inch IPS display featuring an HDR 400 supported QHD resolution. It has a fast response rate of 1ms(GtG) and a 165Hz refresh rate for fast-paced gaming. The screen is bezel-less and has good ergonomics that support swivel, pivot, tilt, and height adjustment.

For tear-free gameplay, Viewsonic has equipped it with Nvidia G-Sync and there are multiple features found on it that increase its functionality.

The monitor’s RGB lighting can further be synced with different peripherals such as a mouse, keyboard, and LED mouse pads from major manufacturers like Razer, Corsair, or Cooler Master giving users the flexibility to choose whatever colour theme they would like. Moreover, there is a built-in mouse anchor that makes it easy for routing the mouse cable for a neat setup.
At the back, there are multiple types of output ports for both display and peripherals.
