AORUS CV27Q 165Hz Gaming Monitor Review

Just about a year ago AORUS presented their first gaming monitor and since then they have released several models. AORUS being Gigabyte’s gaming brand means that these displays are geared specifically towards gamers. In my opinion 1440p high frame rate gaming is really the sweet spot when it comes to performance and image quality. For those looking for a display that can offer that AORUS has the perfect thing in their CV27Q which is a 27-inch 1440p display with a 165 Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, HDR, 90% DCI-P3 color, and a slew of other features. Is this the perfect 1440p display for the gamer out there? Read on as we find out!

Opening the box up you’ll find the display nicely packed inside between two pieces of Styrofoam. As far as what comes with the display you’ll get three different power cables (one for each region), a HDMI cable, DisplayPort cable, USB cable, and a user’s guide.
