The 27-inch may not be your typical gaming monitor because it lacks illuminated LEDs on the surface, rather, it gives a very plain look. Don’t confuse that for being boring—it’s V-shaped stand and curved monitor are enough to remind you that this is a gaming screen. What this Sceptre monitor lacks is brightness, but it makes up for with practicality, you can use Sceptre C275B-1858RN in the office too. On the back of the stand, there’s a small dock to keep all your cords organized.
Like the 27-inch AOC CQ27G2 gaming monitor we recently reviewed, the Sceptre C275B-1858RN uses a vertical alignment (VA) panel and has 1800R curvature, which isn’t as pronounced as the 1500R curvature on the Samsung CF791 but is beautifully curved compared to the Acer Predator X34 bmiphz.
For starters, the curvature of a screen is measured in R figures, and for a set screen, the larger the R-value, the lower the curvature. Our review unit has a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, a 3,000:1 contrast ratio, a fast 165Hz refresh rate, a good 16:9 aspect ratio, 250 cd/m2 peak brightness, and a 3-millisecond (3ms) pixel response rate.
Inputs And Presets
The Sceptre C275B-1858RN packs plenty of connections for your PC or console, with two HDMI inputs as well as a DisplayPort (the latter is needed when you want to use the FreeSync model of the monitor). There’s also a pair of built-in speakers and a 3.5mm mini-jack for external headphones or headphones, but there’s no USB port included—which is understandable at this price point.
On this Sceptre C275B-1858RN monitor, there are several color modes depending on the task. In total, you have five picture presets Standard, User, Movie, Echo, FPS, and RTS to adjust the way you watch, plus two game presets RTS (Real-Time Strategy), and FPS (First Person Shooter).
Offering a fast 165Hz refresh rate, the Sceptre C275B-1858RN makes a sensation out of most modern AAA titles, including The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Red Dead Redemption 2. The 1080p monitor’s two shooters preset both serve a unique purpose when playing a title. like a siege; Where FPS1 mode offers dull colors to prevent eye strain, RTS makes it particularly easy to attack enemies.
While gaming, this Sceptre C275B-1858RN monitor does an excellent job displaying great visuals. Flowing rivers and Dota 2’s colorful fantasy characters give you plenty of time to keep up with the action. The monitor’s RTS and FPS modes make images extremely sharp – although they don’t look particularly pretty, these modes create visible outlines around each character that could potentially help pro gamers identify allies and enemies. can do.
With AMD FreeSync support, screen-tearing is reduced on AMD-powered machines—such as the HP Pavilion TG01-0030 or iBUYPOWER Trace 4, by syncing the display directly with your computer’s graphics card. At some point, you may find it almost unnecessary because of the monitor’s already strong performance in Standard mode.
Few modes rely on low-input as much as fighting games, and we’re glad that games like Street Fighter V will run smoothly on this Sceptre-curved monitor. You’ll have no problem pulling off combos that require frame-perfect timing.

The 27-inch Sceptre C275B gaming monitor has tons of advantages for both gamers and office users, with relatively few drawbacks and absolutely no surprises. With a VA panel, it stands out in the crowded category of 27-inch gaming monitors, which deliver plenty of gaming speed, accurate colors, and awesome contrast.

The Sceptre left out a few other things that, honestly, we don’t miss—there’s any HDR signal included, no lighting effects on the panel, and no USB ports. But honestly, none of these features will affect your gaming experience.
What’s included in this Sceptre monitor is a nice contrast at this price range. Only a few other VA monitors have high contrast above what you have here. Options here include the VA-based AOC CQ27G2 which offers the most accurate sRGB mode, spot-on grayscale, and extended color that covers about 83% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. It remains our Editors’ Choice for a 27-inch gaming monitor.
On the other hand, if you need a minimalist design on the flashy LEDs on the AOC CQ27G2, the Sceptre C275B offers exactly that, and a few more gaming extras, including AMD Freesync technology.
