Although looking at a monitor isn't the most interesting thing in photographs, at least you can get a feel for the adjustments possible on the Gigabyte Aorus AD27QD. We've always moaned at the poor quality of supplied stands, but there are no such issues here. It's easy to move from landscape to portrait mode. Perfect for your collection of vertical SHMUPs or playing your old arcade games the way they were designed.

It's not only rotational adjustments that the stand does well in. There is loads of tilt angle available to ensure that you get the most ergonomic user experience possible. If you spend even half the time we do looking at our displays then your neck will thank you.

The stand itself, as well as including the Aorus screaming eagle logo, has a hand hold for quick manoeuvring. Perfect if you fancy a bit of local multiplayer without enduring your mate screen peeking.

Lastly the business end of the AD27QD is, of course, the connectors for the display and other connectors. The headset inputs have built in active noise cancelling so if you're the type of person who streams a lot then you'll definitely appreciate that feature.

Peace
I still don't know why you would integrate an aim balancer, black equalizer and a hardware rendered crosshair... Of course you can also paint a crosshair on your monitor or stick some Tesa on it, but... That's cheating; exploiting 3rd party hardware to overcome a game's design restrictions. What does the aim balancer actually do? That wasn't mentioned in the article. I guess it would eliminate any view kick, right? Making it easier to aim.


On another note, could we expect every new FreeSync monitor to be GSync Compatible as well?Quote
