Aside from the growing trend of monitors to sport a thin cabinet, there is also an increasing fame for the curved structure, and one of those units to join the bandwagon is that of the ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q. It is a cool-looking monitor that has an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel that is able to deliver an outstanding gaming performance. Its color accuracy is top notch, and it is also on par with other high-end gaming monitors on the market such as the 34-inch Acer Predator X34. However, perhaps you would use this particular unit for its graphical performance as its underpowered built-in speakers leave much to be desired.
The ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q Has an Awesome Graphics Performance; Not Much to Say About its Sound
The ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q is delivered into the market with a slightly textured gray cabinet, a slick, bezel-free design, built-in lighting effects, and copper accents found here-and-there. There is very little doubt that its design, as well as its capabilities, is clearly made for gamers. Its 34-inch IPS panel delivers a native resolution of 3,400 x 1,440, and it also has a 5-millisecond pixel response. The monitor offers a 21:9 aspect ratio, and has a peak brightness of 300 cd/m2.
Just like its competitor, the Predator X34, the ROG Swift PG348Q offers a high-spec display that features a 3,800R curvature radius. Therefore, it does make you feel a bit closer to the action that what you would normally experience with a regular flat-panel display.
The front portion of the monitor is clear of buttons, and instead, you can find the Power switch, two hot keys, and a five-way toggle button located at its rear. One of the hot keys will launch the Turbo Mode feature, in which you can choose one of seven refresh rates. These refresh rates range from 60Hz to 100Hz. As for the other hot key, it is a button used for GamePlus; this is a menu wherein you can select one of four crosshair-aiming targets, enable a Frames-Per-Second (FPS) counter, and also set game timers.
Just about everything you would expect from a high-end gaming monitor like the ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q will meet your expectations. The color accuracy is top-notch, and it can even display every shade of gray accurately. However, it might be best to get your audio fix from another source as the sound performance from the built-in speakers are underpowered.
