ASUS MX27UCS: new 10-bit 4K monitor with Bang & Olufsen speakers

ASUS MX27UCS review

This year is one of the best in the gaming section, not only in the computer as such, but everyone around him. For this reason the brands have presented numerous gaming monitors, but on the other hand few monitors focused on other areas. ASUS has thought about the rest of users and has launched its MX27UCS, a monitor with 4K resolution and 10-bit IPS panel.

It seems that everything that is not gaming is not valid for other tasks, which in the gaming section introduces the best of the best in screens and panels, but it really is not like that. And proof of this is the ASUS MX27UCS, an almost-design monitor that incorporates a 10-bit AH-IPS panel capable of reproducing 1.07 billion colors.

In addition, its resolution is 4K UHD (3840 × 2160), so that together with its aforementioned panel and a total size of 27 inches, we will obtain clear images and as vividly as possible, where this MX27UCS is able to cover the range of 100% sRGB colors.

As a good AH-IPS monitor, your viewing angles will be typical 178º / 178º, so the tilt of the monitor will not matter or if you are sitting more to one side than to the other: the vision will be perfect from almost your profile.

Another important aspect in 4K monitors of “compact” size (understood as a compact smaller than 28 “for this resolution) is its pixel pitch, which in this case is 0.155 mm, detail that will mark the real clarity of the monitor along with the established resolution. What about the brightness and the contrast? On the brightness we will have a ratio of 300 cd, while the contrast rises to 1300: 1, where ASUS ensures that with its ASCR technology we can get the feeling of 100000000: 1.

The curious thing about this monitor is that, despite not being labeled as gaming, it has some characteristics of a monitor for that purpose. Starting with a not very high response time of 5 ms GTG, Flicker Free technology, Trace Free Technology, GamePlus, AudioWizard with game mode and also a refresh rate of 75 Hz.

These characteristics are more typical of models for casual players than for a model focused on multitasking, multimedia and leisure. As if that were not enough, your connection will be made through a USB-C cable, which will allow the video signal, power supply and data transmission, all in a single cable, freeing us from at least two other derivatives of its use.

Its connectivity goes through a USB-C, an HDMI, a DisplayPort 1.2, a minijack of 3.5 mm and a USB 3.1 through HUB. It will allow an inclination of -5 to 20 degrees and weigh 5.5 kg. Not forgetting its SonicMaster Audio sound system developed in conjunction with Bang & Olufsen.

At the moment, the brand has not given an exit date or price.
