Designed keeping the contemporary gamer in mind and quite an eye-pleaser, the XG270QC sports a glossy black finish has a single DisplayPort 1.4 input, two HDMI 2.0 inputs, a 3.5mm audio output, and a Kensington Lock slot for improved security. The XG 27QC sports an adjustable height of between 18.97 and 23.59 inches, weighing all of 7.5 kg with the bracket installed. We found the Elite Display Controller software quite refreshing; it connects to your device via a supplied Type-A cable allows users to adjust the integrated RGB LED lighting. The Tilt feature allows the user to enjoy a glare less experience while the swivel allows swift movements without moving the monitor.
We could tell that excellent attention to detail and research has been invested when designing the monitors as a gamer’s trusted ally, keeping in mind crucial gamer insights, the ELITE Design Enhancement (EDE) elevates has all traits to elevate one’s gaming experience. The EDE’s include a curved metal base, the base phone support arrangement, an ambient RGB lighting, built-in mouse anchor, and a well-reinforced headphone hook. We say some well-thought design plugins for experienced gaming specialists.
