Lenovo Legion y27gq has G-Sync (module adds a few hundred dollars). HP Omen X27 is FreeSync 2 compliant.

That's before you talk about stuff like overdrive implementation, strobing crosstalk, etc.
There's plenty to differentiate between OEMs even if the underlying panel is the same.

While true, also consider the home run HP hit with the 25" 1080p version of this monitor. Looking at rtings review it has the lowest input lag of any 240hz monitor i've seen tested, and the overdrive is excellent. They also claim 20-240hz VRR and it was Nvidia certified so i expect nothing less from this 27" 1440p 240hz variant. I dont know whether it has variable overdrive as that is indeed important to have if you plan to play below 240fps, but i think for 90% of users who buy a 240hz display they're going to be using them in a few select competitive titles and if they're smart they'll have a good enough PC to lock in 240 fps then variable overdrive doesn't really matter.

The only thing that is disappointing so far is every single 240hz monitor i've seen tested has poor delay values at 60hz and i would like an AIO monitor for PC and console use but 14-15ms of lag at 60hz is unacceptable for a gaming monitor. I'm hopeful with these new 240hz 1440p panels with different scalers will have low lag at 240hz 2-3ms and 8-10ms at 60hz. I've been on a Dell S2417DG too long now to ever think about going back to 1080p monitors too so these 240hz 1440p monitors are a nice welcome finally. Only thing that would make them better is OLED, but no such luck.

I had the y27gq for two weeks but returned it because of the ******** V2 module fan.


Looking forward to this one tbh, i need a new monitor anyways.

I agree that $350 is a very steep price to ask for gsync but aren't these supposely using the new DP 1.4 gsync modules that cost $500? Anyways I would love to have a Lenovo Gsync version WITHOUT the speakers at a closer cost to this Omen.

I've been using the Omen 27 for the past couple years. I tried almost every IPS/TN 27" G-Sync model and the HP was the best overall. Top performance and design. Plus, you can find them relatively cheap on eBay/Amazon quite frequently.

Not sure how that will translate to the 240Hz Freesync 2 version, but I'm hoping for the best. Really hope some manufacturers start making the effort to incorporate variable overdrive, even if it increases cost.

Few things I'm considering between this and the Y27GQ.

- Y27GQ has a faster listed pixel response time. I'm interested to try one of the 0.3ms-0.5ms G2G monitors to see if it's actually noticeable.
- Y27GQ will have the G-Sync 2 module, which by most accounts so far gives superior performance to old G-Sync or Free-Sync 2.
- Would want the better VRR since outside of a few games, not going to hold 240fps steady.

Is it worth $350 more for the Lenovo? Probably not. I think my decision will come down to how much the HP is with student discount vs. how much can be taken off with a Lenovo coupon code.

the Y27GQ is only 0.3-0.5 ms at extreme response time it might have ghosting at that mode so best to leave it at normal overdrive 3ms
