From a visual standpoint, the box of the VG27VH1B is a downgrade from say, the VG279Q1A. Instead of the usual black and gray theme, that you get from the latter, it’s just a typical brown box. At least, there’s still an image of the monitor on both sides, and there are still enough TUF Gaming labels.
Now, one of the pain points of buying a monitor is actually having to carry the box to your car or having to carry it on a commute. The reason? not having a handle on the box or even a slot on the sides on which your fingers can go through. Well, that’s not the case with this one, thankfully.
There are actually a few little things that may go unappreciated here, such as the markings on where the front side is. There’s even an illustration of how the monitor connects to the stand.
The monitor itself is sandwiched in styrofoam panels that keep it from moving around when in transit. One of the trickiest parts is when you’re actually pulling out the monitor from the box. At first, I did have a hard time pulling the unit out, but that’s because I was not able to retract the side flaps outward, causing one of them to block the styrofoam piece.
As for the contents, you get the usual documentation, two pieces for the stand, four screws for connecting the stand to the unit, an HDMI cable, a power cable, and a screwdriver. I’d say you have everything you’ll need, apart from say, an extra screw.
