This is a review of the Neotez Aquila 27, an underdog in new gaming monitors. It’s got some innovative features that allow it to be less expensive than most other monitors.
The “Neotez Aquila 27 Gaming Monitor Review: The Underdog” is a review of the Neotez Aquila 27, which is an under-appreciated gaming monitor. It has a resolution of 1440p, 144Hz refresh rate and G-Sync.
Monitors are constantly in demand, and in the past two years, they’ve become one of the most popular Work from Home purchases. Monitors, on the other hand, were never sold at SRP. Prices increased as a result of the scarcity and have yet to decrease. There’s a new player in town right now that wants to spice things up with their products. Neotez is a brand-new company that has created three gaming monitors. The Neotez Aquila 27 Gaming Monitor was sent to us for evaluation, and it’s a real underdog.
Design and Construction
While it may seem to have a fairly simple design when compared to other monitors in this price bracket, the Neotez Aquila 27 Gaming Monitor offers some adaptability to the table right out of the box. We inquired about the 27″ monitor in particular since it is a monitor’s sweet spot, as opposed to the 32″, which is aimed for a very specific demographic.
It’s a decent construction after you put the stand and monitor together. Personally, I’ve seen nicer monitors with more durable supports, and although this one falls short and seems a little flimsy, it still balances the panel well.
It has some gamer-esque motifs on the rear, as well as RGB lights on the back and bottom, which displays the brand’s emblem. The Neotez Aquila 27 Gaming Monitor has a lot of mobility options. Not only can you alter the height, but you can also swivel the display above and below to place it exactly as you want it. You may turn the screen if you want it in a vertical configuration.
To be honest, you can’t do as much with any other monitor as you may imagine since it’s a price you have to pay, and in this instance, I’m quite satisfied with the display’s orientation and mobility. You won’t need a VESA mount for any of the aforementioned duties, which means you’ll save money. But, hey, if you want to, the choice is yours.
The following features are included in the Neotez Aquila 27 Gaming Monitor’s specifications:
- 27″ 16:9 Quad HD IPS Display
- Support for a refresh rate of 165Hz and adaptive sync
- 1 millisecond response time
- Up to 400 nits of brightness and HDR400 support
- 2 HDMI 2.0 ports and 2 DisplayPort 1.4 ports
- 1x AC and 1x Audio in
The following specifications are quite good; the ability to link up to four monitors in one monitor removes the need for an extra controller, and it can serve as a one-stop hub for everything.
The monitor does have a little thick bezel all around and at the bottom where the logo is positioned, thus Neotez says it has a ZeroBezel design, which I disagree with. Aside from that, the display doesn’t seem to be in bad shape. The OBD controls on the right side of the panel are something that irritates me about this monitor.
Because it’s a button-based system, you’ll have to remember which buttons do what, and altering the settings may be difficult. I wish it came with a joystick-like controller, which would make it much more user-friendly, especially in terms of switching the display output.
Another feature you’ll note is that the monitor has a cutout on the back for a built-in adapter, yet it only comes with an external adapter. Another issue might have been addressed, making cable management simpler. This is just nitpicking on my part, and I am very content with the adapter. But the key issue is whether or not this display can provide the best User Interaction possible.
Neotez Aquila 27 Gaming Monitor started out on the right foot by getting not just the specifications perfect, but pretty much everything else in the display area right as well. It has a 27-inch Quad HD Fast IPS display, which is already an improvement above 27-inch Full HD displays, which are inferior and old owing to pixel spacing.
On top of that, they have some features that will entice gamers – the 165Hz with 1 millisecond response time. As for those who plans to use this monitor for editing related work, it comes with 100% sRGB and 90% DCI-P3 Color Gamut Support.
Now that I’ve been using this monitor as my daily driver for three weeks, I’m satisfied with the quality of panel that they chose. Unfortunately, we have no idea what kind of panel it is, but it has exceeded our expectations. We couldn’t find a single defective pixel during our test of looking for them immediately out of the box, indicating that it has undergone extensive quality control testing.
The display’s consistency is also impressive, with brightness evenly spread throughout and no irregular gray zones. The display’s clarity allows varied text sizes to seem legible without fringing or blurriness.
Because it’s an IPS panel, the viewing angle is well-done with adequate coverage, and there are no color shifts or tints when seen from various angles. The gamma level mixes at 2.2 and at the sRGB level as well, indicating that the scores are near to correct. Finally, the reaction time is exactly what it claims to be.
My job entails a lot of content creation and gaming in my day-to-day activities. I have to admit that in the three weeks I’ve had this monitor, I haven’t had any pain in any form. Given that, it performed well throughout our test. The performance was as impressive as the outcomes.
Editing in Lightroom took some getting used to, but after I got the hang of it, the display was great and the colors were just what I anticipated. When I compared the finished modified picture on my cellphone to a much more color accurate display, there was a 2% variation, but it wasn’t large enough to be a deal breaker.
On the other side, gaming is where the monitor shines brightest. We played games like Doom: Eternal, and the Adaptive Sync worked as advertised, with an extremely smooth refresh rate and immediate reaction time while we shot demons. The same can be said for games like Division 2 and others where it performed well. The HDR400 is what it is, and although it isn’t real HDR, the colors are better when the toggle is turned off.
Everything else comes second to a decent panel on a display, and in this instance, the Neotez Aquila 27 Gaming Monitor exceeded our expectations in more ways than one, by providing one of the most attractive displays at a hard to match price of RM 1549. It’s now on sale for RM 1399, which is a great deal.
While there are many novice participants in the market, it’s understandable to be suspicious about how things will turn out. Neotez, on the other hand, is on the correct course. If they keep going in this direction and cure some of the minor flaws, like as the on-board controller, which is still difficult to adjust to, it will be the ideal monitor that other companies should be concerned about.
