Review: ASUS ROG Swift PG32UQ

The ASUS ROG Swift PG32UQ is a 32-inch gaming monitor that offers the goodness of a 4K pixel array. The monitor offers a pixel density of 138 PPI and a refresh rate of 144Hz. The IPS panel used on the monitor has a grey-to-grey response time of just 1ms. This helps to keep the viewing experience blur-free and ghosting-free.

What’s more, the PG32UQ also supports HDR10 and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro adaptive-sync. In addition, it also accompanies G-Sync Compatible certification and a DisplayHDR 600 certification, complete with local dimming. The ROG Swift PG32UQ covers 98% of the cinematic DCI-P3 colour space.

The PG32UQ also offers both ALLM (automatic low-latency mode), VRR (variable refresh rate), and HDMI 2.1 compliance for 4K/120fps gaming. This means the monitor can be used with the latest gaming consoles such as Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, and with PCs without sacrificing the bandwidth.

On the monitor, you get two HDMI 2.1 ports on the rear, along with a DisplayPort 1.4 port, a headphone jack, two USB 3.0 ports and a USB-B 3.0 port. The monitor sits on a large, three-pronged metal stand, which can tilt 20 degrees back and forth, swivel 25 degrees left and right, and rise and sink by 100mm. Having said all of that, the monitor is well built and the stand is sturdy.

Inside the box, you also get a DP and HDMI cable, along with the power adapter, a USB-A to USB-B cable for the USB hub and a clip-on port cover to keep it all out of sight. In terms of design, the ROG Swift PG32UQ sports a cybernetic-inspired chassis and Aura Sync lighting on the ROG logo at the back of the monitor.

At the back of the monitor, you will also find the buttons and a directional toggle. This can be used to control the OSD. The menu system is easy to navigate and you can access all sorts of options such as colour, crosshairs, timers, the sniper mode, and so on. Most ASUS gaming monitors out there on the market are feature-packed, and the PG32UQ is no exception.

In terms of performance, the PG32UQ surprises in many areas, one of which is the richness of colours and the contrast being on point.

Since the panel is edge-lit and, thanks to a total of 16 local dimming zones, the PG32UQ performs really well when it comes to HDR. While the gaming experience was fantastic, watching content such as videos and movies also makes for an excellent experience.

The ASUS ROG Swift PG32UQ comes in at a price point of AED 4400, which is similar to the pricing of a 4K TV. However, the fact that the PG32UQ offers a superior IPS panel, packs in ports that offers versatility for both PC gamers and console gamers, and lots of features that bring in lots of customisation, the pricing seems justified.

If you are looking for a monitor for day to day office jobs, the PG32UQ isn’t a monitor for you. However, if you are a gamer or a content creator and need a top-notch monitor that offers high pixel density, wide Adobe RGB colour gamut, good response time, VRR + MBR up to 155Hz, and DisplayHDR 600, this monitor is just for you!
