Viotek GN27D 27-inch Curved 1440p 144Hz Monitor Review

Not that long ago we took a look at Viotek’s 32-inch GN32Q, which was their 1440p curved 144Hz display with a really cool rose gold design. While 32-inches is a good size, it seems most serious gamers feel a 27-inch or 24-inch display is really the sweet spot as you really don’t have to move your head around at all the view the entire screen. Viotek’s GN27D features a 27-inch curved VA panel with a 1440p (2560 x 1440) resolution, a 144 Hz refresh rate, and FreeSync. Compared to the GB32Q the GN27D definitely looks more like a gaming display with its all black design and slim stand. Even better is that this display is only $369.99 on Amazon, making it one of the most affordable 27-inch 1440p 144Hz curved display out there. Is this display worth picking up? Read on as we find out!

Packaging
The GN27D comes in a more gamer-esque retail box than the GB32Q did. The front is pretty plain just having the Viotek logo and product name on it.

Flipping over to the back we have a full color photo of the monitor in action and many of the features are listed.

Opening the box up we can see that the display is nicely protected by two pieces of Styrofoam. The box had a few gashes in it, but the display came without any scratches or anything like that.

Getting everything out of the box you have the GN27D display, DisplayPort cable, power cable, and the user’s manual. Note that the stand was not attached to the display, you’ll have to install that yourself.
