High refresh rate Full HD models with IPS (In-Plane Switching)
and related panels are relatively new to the market,
but hit the price and performance point that some users are after.
The Gigabyte M27F is one such offering from
the company’s ever-expanding range of gaming monitors
. The styling is simple, with a slight nod to the ‘gaming’ aesthetic but in a fairly low-key way.
Dark grey and black matte plastics are used extensively on both the stand and bottom bezel.
The top and side bezels are dual-stage, with a slim panel border flush with the rest of the screen plus a slim hard plastic outer component.
The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick at the rear of the monitor, towards the bottom right as viewed from the front.
There’s also a dedicated KVM button to allow connected peripherals to be quickly switched between different systems.
