Aorus CV27F 165Hz Curved Gaming Monitor Review: HDR on Budget

aorus-cv27f-165hz-curved-monitorBy Christian Eberle @ Tom’s Hardware

The Aorus CV27F 27-inch display is a VA panel with a 1500R curvature and a 165 Hz refresh rate (without overclock). With FreeSync 2, you can even enjoy HDR content with an older AMD graphics card, like the AMD Radeon R9 285 we have in one of our test rigs. No, it won’t run HDR at 3840 x 2160 above 30 frames per second (fps) like some of the best 4K gaming monitors. But it can run HDR right up to 165 fps at 1920 x 1080. And the price is far more attractive too. The Aorus CV27F sells for around $350 at this writing. And while it won’t quite deliver the image quality of something like the Asus PG27UQ, a $1,500 HDR gaming monitor with a full array backlight with local dimming, it sells for less than a quarter of the price.
