With a few omissions and a high price tag, we can’t quite call the Asus ROG Swift PG32UQX perfect. But its picture quality is without equal among computer monitors. A Mini LED backlight with a quantum dot film provides amazing contrast and a huge color gamut for the latest gaming and video formats. It has the best image of any computer display we have ever reviewed.
What constitutes the ultimate computer monitor? There is no single answer of course, as the best computer monitor for anyone must fit their specific needs and wishes. But sometimes, a display comes along that packs everything into a single product. Gaming monitors need speed, responsiveness, features that enhance play and solid image quality. Workday monitors need screen real estate, clarity and reliability. Professional screens must be accurate, capable of showing the latest video formats and built for long-term use. Rarely are all these things included in one display.
The Asus ROG Swift PG32UQX is one of those rare displays. With bleeding edge panel tech in the form of a full-array local dimming (FALD) Mini LED quantum dot backlight sporting 1,152 dimming zones, 4K resolution, 144 Hz, G-Sync Ultimate, a huge color gamut, factory-certified accuracy and 1,400 nits of max brightness, it’s one of the best 4K gaming monitors and gaming monitors in general. Yet, it also provides everything needed for great productivity and professional-grade image editing. It might be the ultimate monitor — unless you factor in price.
