Asus ROG Strix XG49VQ Review | Trusted Reviews


The Asus ROG Strix XG49VQ is an incredible widescreen monitor for gaming – but it's expensive

Excellent colour quality ; Fantastic contrast ; Huge, curved, wide panel ; Decent physical design ; Good OSD

Uniformity isn’t great ; HDR has little impact ; Huge price ; Limited usefulness in some genres

Good basic image quality, solid design and decent features, but a high price and some inconsistent performance are issues

Asus ROG Strix XG49VQ review


Asus's latest gaming monitor is a super-wide monster

Huge panel size ; High refresh rate ; Great gaming features

Not exactly cheap ; Poor image quality for productivity ; No USB-C

Asus’s latest gaming panel is a super-wide, 49-inch monster of a monitor with a high refresh rate and HDR support. However, you’ll pay dearly for such a monitor without a USB-C port.

Asus ROG Strix XG438Q Review


The Asus ROG Strix XG438Q is one of the most outrageous gaming monitors that you can buy right now – because it's a 43in beast that looks like more like a TV than a PC display.

Huge, impressive 4K screen with good image quality AMD FreeSync 2 and HDR included Robust build quality and decent speakers

Not suitable for all situations BGR rendering sometimes makes text less crisp Very expensive

The Asus ROG Strix XG438Q is a stunning screen with an impressive design, but its vast size means that it won’t always be the best option for gaming.

Asus ROG Strix XG49VQ ultrawide gaming monitor review


A monstrous monitor that will serve fans of ultrawides, with so much screen space and decent gaming pedigree.

So much screen space ; Nice curved design and build quality ; Decent gaming pedigree ; Great flexibility

Enormous price tag ; Requires a beastly rig to get the best out of it ; Using Picture by Picture mode loses gaming monitor features ; No G-Sync and HDR not quite as good as HDR TVs

Will definitely appeal to fans of ultrawides, given its picture quality, gaming pedigree and multi-tasking ability. The super-high price and inconsistent feature set remains a concern.
