Lenovo G27q-20 / G27-20 Specifications & Features

As we mentioned in the beginning, the two monitors are similar in most ways. Hence, let’s talk about the differences between them first.

First and foremost, the G27q-20 supports up to 165Hz refresh rate, whereas the G27-20 is limited to 144Hz. Further, the former features a 1440p (2560 X 1440 pixels) 10-bit display panel and therefore, it supports up to 1.07 billion colors and 109 PPI. On the other hand, the latter only supports only up to 16.7 million colors with 82 PPI as it comes with an 8-bit panel 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels).

Due to the differences in refresh rate and panel type, the power consumption is different in the two models, which is obvious. Additionally, the higher-spec’d model is also slightly heavier, larger in dimensions, and feature HDMI 2.0 instead of HDMI 1.4. However, both of them come with the same DP 1.4 and 3.5mm audio output ports.

With the dissimilarities out of the way, let us discuss the common specs between them. Starting with the size, the two monitors sport a 27-inch IPS LCD

panel with a WLED backlight and 16:9 aspect ratio. The display is further covered by anti-glare coating and has a 178° viewing angle

Interestingly, despite the differences in resolution and refresh rate, both the monitors have the exact same peak brightness of 400 cd/m2, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 3M:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 99% sRGB color gamut, and up to 1ms response time.

They also support HDR decoding, AMD FreeSync™ Premium, and are also TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light / Flicker Free-certified. Additionally, the monitors also come with a Kensington™ lock slot and support VESA mount as well as cable management.


Last but not least, these monitors only come in Raven black color option with a blue accented stand that can be used to tilt or lift the screen.
