Lenovo’s Latest Slim-Bezeled 27-inch Legion Gaming Monitors Hit 280Hz

Lenovo introduces a pair of versatile 27-inch monitors.

Lenovo’s Legion brand is all about gaming, and the company just announced a slew of new gaming laptops and desktops. Lenovo also introduced two new gaming monitors under the Legion brand that excel at both gaming and productivity tasks. The width of both monitors is 27 inches, but there are subtle differences.

The Legion Y27qf-30 has a resolution of QHD (2560 x 1440) and an MPRT of 0.5 milliseconds. The panel’s native refresh rate is 240Hz, which can be overclocked to 250Hz while supporting AMD FreeSync Premium technology. That may not sound particularly fast in a world where 500Hz and 540Hz gaming monitors have been introduced, but Lenovo is using a high-quality 10-bit IPS panel instead of a Twisted Nematic (TN) panel.

The Legion Y27qf-30, according to Lenovo, covers 125 percent of the sRGB color space and 95 percent of the DCI-P3 color space. The monitor is DisplayHDR 400 compliant (typical brightness of 400 nits) and has a contrast ratio of 1000:1. (typical).

The Legion Y27qf-30 is designed with 2mm-thick bezels along its sides and on its top. The bottom bezel is significantly larger at 20.6mm and contains a “Legion” logo and status LEDs. The monitor is height-adjustable (135mm), tilt-adjustable (-5/25 degrees), pivot-adjustable (+/- 90 degrees), and swivel-adjustable (+/- 30 degrees), with an integrated phone holder in the base.

Lenovo includes two HDMI 2.0 ports and a single DisplayPort 1.4 port for connectivity. A hub with four USB 3.2 Gen 1 (Type-A) ports is also included for connecting peripherals. Dual 3-watt speakers are included, and the Y27qf-30 supports the magnetically attachable modular LC50 webcam from Lenovo.

The similarly named Legion Y27f-30 features a Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution in place of the QHD resolution. The Legion Y27f-30 also has a native 240Hz refresh rate, but it can be overclocked to 280Hz (compared to 250Hz for the Legion Y27q-30) with a 0.5 ms MPRT. These specifications place this monitor among the best gaming monitors.

DisplayHDR 400 and FreeSync Premium are also supported, and the IPS panel covers 113.7 percent of the sRGB color space and 90.6% of the DCI-P3 color space, respectively. Typically, the contrast ratio is 1000:1, while the dynamic contrast ratio is 3,000,000:1.

The Legion Y27f-30 utilizes the same “3-side NearEdgeless” design as the Legion Y27q-30, so you get the same good looks, adjustability, and handy built-in phone stand. The same port layout and 4-port USB-A hub are also included.

The Legion Y27f-30 and Legion Y27qf-30 will be available in May for $399 and $549, respectively, according to Lenovo.
