Huge, curved, wide gaming monitor – Excellent Asus ROG Strix XG49VQ

The Asus ROG Strix XG49VQ has several good attributes. The contrast and color accuracy are excellent, the widescreen format helps in various game genres, and the lower resolution means that more GPUs will be able to run this screen properly. You have AMD FreeSync, good build quality and robust fit options. Even the speakers are impressive.

However, HDR has little impact, connectivity could be better and not all games benefit from a widescreen. The resolution means that the screen is not particularly sharp, and the uniformity is quite poor. These are issues we don’t necessarily expect when a screen costs 989 pounds, more than any of its rivals.

If you can deal with these issues and have a lot of money to burn, then the Asus ROG Strix XG49VQ is a good choice for fans of particular genres – mainly because of its gaming features and, potentially, due to the lower resolution as well. However, there is no denying that this monitor has obvious flaws, and simply does not fit most players.
