Video Reviews

Honestly, Asus has done a really good job with the ROG Swift OLED PG42UQ and we daresay that it is worth that extra bit of cash for it especially if you’re going to be using it with a PC. Having a DisplayPort is a huge benefit, and so are the other nifty things like a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Hub, the matte coating, the implementation of Uniform Brightness and the fast wake from sleep amongst many other things.

Its peak spot brightness in HDR is 700 nits and it looks just phenomenal!

大画面ブームが来る!?今はまだ高いけど将来絶対流行る!ASUS PG42UQ [超猫拳]

The ASUS ROG SWIFT PG42UQ is the best gaming oled monitor currently available on the market. This product is designed for everyone who has a top of the line configuration, because it fits into it without a problem. The qualities of the ROG SWIFT PG42UQ include superior contrasts and colors, and the high price is justified precisely by the high quality. The only flaw is the size, perhaps a bit excessive for a monitor.

The ASUS ROG Swift XG32UQ monitor is part of my new setup and is the right size for good 4K.

It is a wonderful monitor, with very low response time and a very up-to-date Oled panel. Since it is a monitor, it is great for pc, with the inputs best suited for a mixed pc-console setup

The highlight is the oled technology. The remote control is very useful for navigating the control panel. Very good response time. Price is high but fair for the experience it offers. In conclusion, the PG42UQ offers to date a perfect and unforgettable gaming experience, imposing itself as the best gaming monitor currently available on the market that a fan of adventure, simulation or shooter titles, budget and desk permitting, really cannot give up.
