ViewSonic Elite XG270Q Gaming Monitor Design
The ViewSonic Elite XG270Q comes in different screen sizes and the one which I received at my doorstep was the 27-inch one. The black color gaming monitor comes with minimal bezels on the top and sides, but the but chin has a slightly thicker chin which has the Elite branding and control buttons.
The two most amazing part of the ViewSonic Elite XG270Q gaming monitor was the stand and rear-mounted RGB lighting. The LED lights enhance the gaming experience in the low light scenario, the metal stand is a heavy one but it seems very sturdy as the display fits best on it. You can also adjust the height and viewing angle of the monitor thanks to the hydraulics adjustment panel. It also comes with a headphone stand placed on the left side of the monitor. You can pull out the hanger and place your headphones on them, it seems very thoughtful to me as I don’t have any dedicated stand for my gaming headphones.
