Corsair have announced their new Xeneon 27QHD240 OLED gaming monitor this week. Following in the footsteps of other manufacturers, they are releasing their competitor to the LG 27GR95QE (reviewed), Asus ROG Swift PG27AQDM (with us not for review) and others which are all built around a 26.5″ sized WOLED panel from LG.Display. They all offer a 2560 x 1440 resolution combined with a high 240Hz refresh rate, along with all the usual benefits that OLED technology can offer like near instant response times, true blacks and basically infinite contrast ratio.
META OLED with MLA and HDR capabilities
Interestingly Corsair are the first manufacturer we believe to specifically promote the fact that the panel used here is part of LG.Display’s latest META generation, including MLA technology. More details about what this is in our recent article here. Spec wise Corsair promote a 1.5 million:1 contrast ratio and 1000 nits peak brightness. We should keep in mind that LG quoted the same brightness spec for their 27GR95QE but got nowhere near that, so we hope to see better results from this screen (and others) if this spec is to continue to be quoted. There is also a wide colour gamut with 98.5% DCI-P3 quoted.

Corsair Xeneon 27QHD240 OLED Specs
In other specs the 26.5″ sized screen has a 2560 x 1440 resolution (QHD), a 0.03ms G2G response time spec (0.01ms on/off response time) and a 240Hz refresh rate. This is supported by adaptive-sync for VRR from compatible NVIDIA and AMD systems. It’s not mentioned in their press material, but we expect this screen to feature a matte AG coating like the LG and Asus models, and like the company’s 45″ ultrawide 45WQHD240 (reviewed).
The stand offers tilt, height, swivel and rotate adjustments. There are 1x DisplayPort 1.4, x USB type-C (with DP Alt mode) and 2x HDMI 2.1 video connections available. HDMI 2.1 features are not listed in their press release at the moment. There are also 1x USB-C and 4x USB data ports available.
The front accessible controls also include an innovative proximity sensor to guide you to the correct button for Power ON/OFF, Input Select as well as the On Screen Display (OSD) joystick controller.
OLED Burn-in mitigation and warranty
The screen features an array of burn-in protection techniques to maintain a clean image, even following extended overlay, UI or operating system use, backed by a comprehensive three-year Zero Dead Pixel and Zero Burn In warranty. You may have seen some recent discussion about OLED longevity based on results published by Rtings from >100 TV’s. If so, our recent article here might be of interest.
Availability and Pricing
The new screen is on display throughout PAX East 2023 at the Corsair booth, Booth #18031. You should be able to order the Xeneon OLED from the Corsair webstore and select channel partners in May 2023. Pricing is currently not provided, but should be in the $1000 – 1200 ball-park we expect.
