Asus MX27UQ

It performs well but it lacks VESA holes, is overpriced compared to the LG 27MU67 which supports Free-Sync and offers the same performance.

Asus PG27AQ

It has better color presets than the Acer XB271HK which also has Nvidia G-Sync.

Asus PB27UQ

2017 successor to the PB279Q with HDMI 2.0 (x1) and AMD Free-Sync (40-60hz range). The PB27UQ has a perceived black depth increasing dark matte grey bezel.

Matte 4K AHVA panel with 98hz (8 Bit +FRC / 10 bit HDR 4:4:4), Nvidia G-Sync, height adjustable stand, 4x USB 3.0, 384 zone local dimming and true HDR color.  Proper color (YcBcr 4:4:4) is only supported up to 98hz.  Image quality is degraded at 99-144hz.

The Acer XB273K, X27 and Asus PG27UQ all have over a frame (17ms) of input lag at 60hz, and low (<5ms) delays at 144hz.


Asus RoG Strix XG27UQ

Added the Review by NL Hardware to my Best Reviewed Flicker Free 27" 4-5K AHVA/IPS/PLS buying guide.

Full adjust-able, matte, wide-gamut (partial HDR support), 98hz (8 bit +FRC=10 bit with full 4:4:4 color) to 144hz (8 bit with 4:2:0 color) 3840x2160 IPS (probably AHVA) panel with Nvidia G-Sync, 2x Displayport 1.4 (G-Sync), 2x HDMI 2.0, 2x USB 3.0 and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The XG27Uq has 950:1 contrast, 92% DCI-P3 coverage out-of-the-box, and over-saturates SDR (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) color, as well as has a red tint (5827k color temperautre; RGB measurements) unless set to the sRGB mode which is more accurate, but is also too red and has high (220cdm/2), and locked brightness controls.  The XG27UQ's HDR mode is fairly accurate, but is also too red and lacks a true 10 bit signal and local dimming.  The XG27UQ has negligible input lag (2ms), and minimal overshoot, but slower than average pixel response times (5-12.6ms range versus 2-8ms) versus the fastest non-TN competitors.
