Asus ROG Swift PG348Q Review – Awkward to Set Up But a Beauty to Use

What is the Asus ROG Swift PG348Q? It is a computer monitor that is built for gamers and for video-gaming. It has a 34-inch display (measured diagonally), and it is able to deliver up to 3,440 x 1,440 of pixel resolution. It also has a vast number of the aforementioned pixel count to be stretched across a curved IPS panel. Furthermore, the Nvidia G-Sync technology can also be found as well, along with true 10-bit technology. There’s also flashing, customizable lights if you’re into that as well. While it does tick the right boxes in terms of features, it does go for quite a princely price tag.

The Asus ROG Swift PG348Q Justifies Every Bit of Penny That You Have to Spend on it

The 34-inch display on the Asus ROG Swift PG348Q has a 21:9 ultra-wide aspect ratio, and it does benefit most games. With it, you are able to get greater peripheral vision when playing racing titles, first-person shooters, and a ton of other videogames. Furthermore, there’s also the bonus with regards to the extra screen real-estate that allows strategy games, as well as multiplayer online battle arenas (MOBAs) to be more accommodating. Many gamers do prefer a wider screen instead of a taller one.

When talking about its curve, the ROG Swift PG348Q  also helps for gamers as well. There are many large 4K panels out there that do look off-color within the corners of the screen. This is primarily due to those parts being too far away. With the curve on this particular monitor, it is less pronounced than others. Hence, it is just enough to keep things clear, even in the most extreme corners.

It has a 3,440 x 1,440 resolution that matches its direct rival, the 34-inch Samsung S34E790C. It also has a high pixel count and broad screen; which means that it can deliver an overall pixel density of 110ppi. For those who don’t know about such a figure, then that is an excellent number, especially when playing games at 1080p or 1440p. However, the contrast brought about by 110ppi won’t be as pronounced when looking at 4K visuals.

Perhaps the only caveat found on the Asus ROG Swift PG348Q is the building and setting up process. To start, it weighs 11.1-kilograms, which means it is more than a kilogram heavier than that of Samsung’s contender. It also has chunky legs that stretch out 297-millimeters from front to back. Hence, you would need a large desk to make full use of the unit. But when you’re done with the installation, then your eyes will fall prey with the absolute beauty of the visuals it can deliver.
