Gigabyte Aorus CV27F

Measurements by Belgium Hardware (good gamma)
Review by IBXT
Review by IT Hardware PL

Curved, matte, 1920x1080 165hz and semi-wide gamut (127.2% sRGB or 27% sRGB over-saturation) VA panel with AMD Free-Sync (48-165hz range), Displayport (144hz), 2x HDMI 2.0 (144hz), 2x USB 3.0 and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The Gigabute CV27F is fairly accurate (discounting the semi-wide gamut panel over-saturation), but has slightly too low preset gamma (less than 2.1 for 0-100% white) which results in greys and white being too light, or washed out.  The CV27F has an sRGB mode which is supposed to reduce the over-saturation of SDR (HDTV/REC 709 and sRGB content) color, but it under-saturates colors too much and locks the brightness controls.  Also, according to IBXT, the gamma can be improved to average around 2.23 by setting the Gamma to 4. The CV27F supports HDR, but lacks all of the features required to provide good performance, which is normal and to be expected from budget monitors.  IBXT measured the CV27F's overdrive performance or pixel response times and found that it has fast pixel response times for a VA panel, and low (<7.5ms) input lag.
