    Looks amazing

    Just got this beast today, which is replacing a Seiki Pro 40″ 4k monitor I had, which was great but slow/old.This thing looks pretty amazing, it’s gigantic which I do like. One “con” is that the stand is super wide so I am not able to put this on a raised stand that my old monitor was on to give me back some desk space, so I’ve had to push a bunch of crap on my 70″ desk to the side and my mac mini no longer fits underneath so its sitting behind now.I switch between a mac mini for programming and windows 10 desktop for gaming, this has lots of connection ports. It comes with some light sensing camera that attaches to the back, not sure exactly what it does but assume it auto configures brightness kind of thing. Also comes with a remote which I thought was dumb at first but actually it’s pretty handy versus trying to figure out the buttons on side (in case you lose remote). The remote takes two watch batteries which seems odd, but maybe they last a really long time.I’ve had this all of an hour, but I like it and would recommend buying. It’s expensive, yea, so what.

    You Get What you Pay For With this Monitor

    This Monitor is an expensive beast, but the features, quality, gaming performance is at the top of the spectrum. You get what you paid for, currently there is nothing better I see. I use it for gaming, office work, multi-tasking. No dead pixils, easy set up, has a big “footprint” to set up, have a large desk lol. You will NOT be dissapointed with this Monitor, Asus ROG hit it out of the park wit this one, nice features, capabilities, HDMI & Display port, USB port, and easy to understand software for the novice and experienced GEEK like me to understand. If you are reading this review, you are probably a gamer, and chances are you are waaaay more educated on this topic than I, but I love it, but I think you will be pleased with this.

    HDR mode not sustainable – weird power off mode.. Would not recommend.

    I was really excited for this monitor, advertised as 165hz 10bit panel, HDR, 32inch 1440p FAST IPS. Seemed like a solid buy.PROS -Color is great (when it works)Nice sharp visualsCONS– When HDR enabled, while playing a game, HDR or not, or just normal usage of the monitor, it will go dim, it turns brightness down to below half and will not go brighter until the monitor is rebooted or HDR toggled off and on in windows settings. research online shows this is somewhat of a common issue and ASUS response is a future firmware update “might” fix it.- Panel will not do 10-bit color above 60hz due to using displayport 1.2 vs DP 1.4. There are other similar models by competitors using the same panel that do support 165hz with 10-bit color for a similar price range.- Out of the box color settings seemed off, colors were a bit overblown, but that’s the HDR effect that a lot of people “prefer”- When the monitor goes to sleep, it 100% disconnects from windows, this is the first monitor I’ve had that does this. normally wouldn’t be an issue but when you wake your PC all your windows are re-arranged since windows was assuming the monitor was gone and moved windows to other screens (I’ve never had a monitor that did this before.)

    Does not meet basic expectations

    * The big problem *I purchased this to replace an older 60hz monitor of the same size and resolution. However, upon turning it on to my Windows desktop, a problem was immediately apparent. Text looked wrong. Especially small text with fine 1-pixel-wide lines. It is like there is a little bit of vertical blur smearing the fine lines. It looks like a poorly configured sharpness setting, except there isn’t a sharpness setting on this monitor, and the problem fades away toward the bottom of the screen! (see pictures!) It is a little hard to discern in photographs, but in person, it makes regular black-on-white text look like it has a drop-shadow.I believe that many people notice this problem, but for lack of a better explanation, blame it on the BGR subpixel layout. I must emphasize that this problem is entirely unrelated to the BGR subpixel layout. Every 4K 43 inch panel I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen several) has a BGR subpixel layout, and the effect of using RGB subpixel antialiasing on a BGR panel is so subtle that most owners never notice a problem. This monitor’s problem is different, and can be most easily confirmed by viewing a sharpness test pattern on the monitor.* No solution from Asus *I contacted Asus tech support about the rendering problem, and their reply was a generic copy-and-pasted list advising things like using the auto-adjust button (yes, the one from old VGA monitors, that doesn’t even exist on this model), running native resolution (duh), and trying different cables. I tried different cables, and there was no change.After several replies, they suggested that I return the monitor for a replacement. However, before I returned the monitor, I wanted to know if a replacement would have the same issue. So I scoured various internet forums and was able to receive confirmation that mine was not the only panel with this particular flaw. I returned the monitor for a refund instead, and I will eagerly await the release of a better model.* General panel quality *To be fair, many people run this monitor with 125% DPI scaling, which largely masks the effect of the panel’s rendering problem. It is also a non-issue in most games. So I will briefly discuss the panel quality compared to others I have used.This panel has notably poor viewing angles, a fact which my brother was quick to point out whenever I tried to show him something on it. He would look over from a steep angle, and it would be too washed out to make sense of anything. Inevitably, he had to get up out of his chair and move over to look from a better angle. Not so with the LG IPS monitor I was using before (and after) this Asus monitor.Motion blur is pretty bad for a gaming monitor, too. I spent quite a bit of time playing WoW Classic on it, and green player names drifting by had a distinct streak behind them, especially in dark environments. This was even with overdrive set to the second-highest setting. The highest overdrive setting was drastically overdone to the point that it created horrid overshooting artifacts everywhere there was motion, making it basically unusable for gaming. This monitor does use a VA panel, and VA panels are known for this kind of streaking, particularly when transitioning to/from black. I cannot compare this panel’s performance with other VA panels however, as I have never used another VA panel for gaming.* Conclusion *As much as it has been eagerly anticipated, I must recommend skipping this monitor. More-advanced models like Acer Predator CG437K and Asus XG43UQ are due to be released soon (around the end of 2019), and with any luck, they may not share the same rendering problems as the Asus XG438Q.

    Production and gaming in a big package

    I use my monitor for video games, software development, and office work at home.For gaming, I have had no issues with the monitor. Everything looks great in 4k and runs 120 without much issue. If I focus enough I can tell a difference between this monitor and a TN panel at 144 hz, but it isn’t enough to bug me. I would recommend OD level 3, which helped with response time, but minimized ghosting for me.For software development and office work, having the space of 4k for multiple spreadsheets or an IDE and your program on screen at the same time is a must have. If you’ve worked with Excel spreadsheets in 120+hz, going back to 60hz hurts.I’m personally hate the compact design of the monitor’s remote. I’m embarrassed to admit it took me way too long to figure out how to get to the actual menu to customize the settings.At the end of the day, if you want 4k, 120hz, and a big screen, then you won’t be disappointed with this. That is my opinion at least.

    Big and cool but….

    Box arrived badly hit on the side…when picture was taken as prove that it was left in front of my door, the hit side was hidden…This is a Prime product…was it shipped and handled by Amazon? I doubt it, in 5 years with Amazon something like this had never happened…still…the monitor came damaged on the side…how stupid! An over $1000 destroyed and left in front of my door as if nothing had happened! I was sorely disappointed.—————Update Nov. 12, 2019—————As I called two weeks ago on a Saturday I was promised that I would have someone pick it up on Sunday and that by Monday I would have a replacement.Relieved I ended the call and did not think much of it. I received no confirmation email. Called again, another agent said that I would get the confirmation 3 hrs later…still no confirmation, called again…explained to another representative and then I asked for a supervisor, explained part of the problem again.Supervisor was extremely nice. Explained I would not have the monitor picked up on a Sunday but on Monday, and that there are no replacements, and nothing on the warehouse to sell me. Fully refunded…still in process…a week after that I noticed the monitor back…ordered it.Box came perfect, I even saw the handlers who gave me the new monitor with a big smile. Unpacked and I am using it as I type…still I have a new problem…the screen constantly goes off and on for like a second or two…why is this happening? My other Asus and an LG monitors in my office do not go off…why is this one going off? It seems to me something to do with the static…If I am wearing a robe with much static it will go on and off some 20 times until I lose it, turn it off, and remove all my clothes to be able to use it…this monitor is either sadistic or I am the biggest unluckiest shopper right now…what will I do?I will call technical support, if it does not work, I return it and maybe…maybe…order a third one just in case…there…it just went off twice…anyways… In the end…I want to keep it, it is beautiful, the settings are hard to follow and the pixels are not as perfect and crisp as they should be, but it is not that bad either, the 43″ is something I am used with now…if I end up giving up on this beautiful monitor, I will have to find another brand that is about this size and can actually … work…Stay tuned, next update coming up…one start added, let us hope Amazon can help me keep it.————–Updated Feb. 23, 2020—————I got a third one. No cracks…no scratches…trust me…I tried to find a new reason to get upset but Amazon was so good this time! No flickering, no screen leaking…I have gotten this one since December and I love it…gaming and programming is awesome. Amazon prime redeemed itself!————–Update Sep. 25, 2020—————My monitor started flickering, or going on and off just like the second 10 months later. Sad..————–Update Nov. 3rd, 2020—————The flickering problem has stopped. On the 26th of Sept. I turned it off and on manually. It goes off and on somehow due to the power button on the back screen. It may be sensitive. Anyways. Ever since the 26th…no more flickering issues!

    A beauty to behold! Wow, simply stunning!

    Your browser does not support HTML5 video.

     Forget these few negative reviews! This monitor is the real deal! I’ve been waiting for something like this to come alone for years! My previous display was a 40 inch Samsung 4k TV using HDMI. FINALLY there is a 43 inch 4k computer “monitor” with DisplayPort and G-Sync compatibility at 144Hz. (mic-drop) There is zero video tearing. The G-Sync compatibility works great. The attached video is Death Stranding playing at 4k with maximum settings. My in-game FPS were in the 130 to 140 area so I know the refresh rate works great. The monitor build quality is excellent. Zero dead pixels. I have my Windows text scaling at 175% and the icons and text are super sharp. No ghosting. My only super-minor complaint are the speakers. They are okay. I don’t use them much anyway because I use headphones. The monitors INCLUDES a DisplayPort cable, and HDMI cable, and a USB cable. The stand is excellent and has pads to prevent desktop damage. There is no height adjustment but the monitor does pivot up and down slightly as needed. I highly recommend this beast of a true 4k 144Hz gaming monitor!

    Excellent display with great features!

    This monitor is excellent and is a worthy successor to the PG278Q I had and it is worthy of the Swift name. Adaptive Sync, ELMB-SYNC, and overclock work wonderfully well. I have not seeing any blurring or tearing. The IPS panel displays very little bleed and glow. Colors look deep and vibrant. It comes factory-calibrated. The Aura lighting is cool but I didn’t really notice it in common use. The matte coating looks good and mitigates reflections quite a bit, even with bright lights behind me.I bought it because I could not get used to a 34″ ultrawide (LG 34GP83A-B). That is also a fantastic monitor but it was just too wide and it felt awkward.For you nVidia users out there: Ensure that G-Sync is enabled. Set your frame rate cap to at least 3 frames below the max refresh rate of the display; so 162fps on 165hz or 172fps on 175hz. Enable Low-Latency mode. Enable V-SYNC within NVCP but *not* within games. Ensure your mouse polling is 1000hz. This will give you the smoothest gameplay, minimize input lag, and make your gaming experience better.The one negative thing I have to say is that the stand is a bit deep and did not sit well on my desk. Using an Amazon Basics floating arm instead. It works just fine and I can move the display where I want it.- The Windows HDR implementation is absolute garbage and should not be compared to what one might see on a high-end television. There are many competing standards and they all look different. IF HDR on your monitor looks like trash, it’s because of the OS and the game, not your display.- DisplayPort 1.2 is more than adequate for this monitor at it’s native resolution and maximum refresh rate of 2560x1440x175hz. DP1.4 is not needed on this device. DP1.2 has a maximum bandwidth of 21.6Gbps. This monitor requires a maximum of 19.35Gbps at 175hz and 8 bits per pixel.In my photos, my window curtains at my back-left are slightly open so there is some light reflections on the screen. It is NOT powdered on in the third pic.
