    Ridiculous

    Ad Talboom | 12 June 2020 | In this version: ASUS ROG Swift PG43UQ | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • 144hz
    • Big screen
    • Backlight bleed is terrible
    • Ghosting is crazy bad
    • A remote control with very few buttons
    • Screen flickers in game when I change multimedia keys right away
    • G sync???? On but still tearing regularly

    Would like a new super monitor with all the trimmings on 43 inch and 4k this is not easy and you have little choice when I view content with a dark background the backlight bleed is terrible tried all settings but nothing makes it better only worse but yes va pannel it is not that bad with gaming but the ghosting is really d3 drop and is annoying 144 hz and then such ghosting problems see the previous frames do not transfer quickly enough to the new one i have an RTX 2080Ti so cheaper it is not lacking gsync on is also confirmed by nvidia controll panel but still showing tearing and slowdown

    For this price you can really expect better this is to cry what a price you better wait until other competitors come with better screens 1500 for its screen while lg 43 inch 4k with hdr ips without 144hz then and gsync but then half cheaper
    I thought asus stood for quality I'm really disappointed and I'm going back to my 60hz 4k screen ips is so much better I'm probably sending this back I'm very disappointed,...

    Immersive monster monitor at a price

    Nathan | 24 September 2020 | In this version: ASUS ROG Swift PG43UQ | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • High Contrast
    • HDR1000 is impressive
    • Display Stream Compression
    • G-Sync
    • 4k 144hz
    • Ghosting
    • No HDMI 2.1
    • Pricey

    I wanted to make better use of my gaming PC in the living room, but my 4k TV was not very suitable because the input lag on it was not very good.

    What I am particularly impressed with: With the PG43UQ I have both a 4k resolution and a low input lag through 144hz. And if you have an RTX 2000 Nvidia GPU, you can also use Display Stream Compression, which allows you to run even 4k 144hz without chroma subsampling. The G-sync functionality and the HDR1000 certification complete the picture. With G-sync from Nvidia, you will not see any stuttering in the image and HDR lets the colors come to life.

    I now use this monitor as my display in my living room because this monitor is nice and big. When I play with mouse and keyboard I use a Corsair Lapboard from the couch. That combination is ideal. I wouldn't recommend this monitor if you plan on placing it on a narrow desk. This one is very big for that.

    Other notable pluses: The remote control is very handy because there are two buttons that can be set manually. The speakers are quite nice for built-in speakers. The base comes pre-installed, so installation is easy and you don't need an extra person.

    Cons: Ghosting takes some getting used to, because the response time of the pixels is not very fast for a gaming monitor. The symptom of this is that during fast movements the image can look a bit blurry. If you play FPS games at a professional level, I wouldn't buy this one because of that. But also if you are very sensitive to ghosting. Unfortunately, the two HDMI connections are HDMI 2.0. HDMI 2.1 is the latest standard. So it would have been nice if this one had that too. It doesn't limit my functionality, though, as there are few devices out there that can take full advantage of it.

    Fairly pricey, but I can live with the few negatives as there's a lot to like about the ROG Swift PG43UQ.

    TL/DR:

    - Ultimate monitor for immersive games through all top specifications.
    - Less suitable for FPS and e-sports players due to noticeable ghosting.
    - Perfect for the living room / nerd cave - quite large for a desk

    Beautiful monitor!
    • 4k HDR 1000
    • 144hz refresh rate
    • Beautiful colours
    • Almost no input lag
    • Super smooth, razor-sharp image
    • Pricey
    • Remote control not working properly

    Been using the monitor for a week now and it's just great. For 43 inches you have to have enough space and distance, which was the case for me. Razor-sharp image at a 144hz refresh rate with a very low input lag! I was a bit afraid of faster games like Call of Duty or Battlefield, but the image is so smooth that I am not bothered by lag, tearing or blurry images. The settings are also very extensive. You can set the monitor to your heart's content according to your own preferences. This screen really provides a special experience! It is pricey and the remote control is only poor (battery does not stay in place well) but in my opinion it is worth the money.

    high price, low quality
    • hdr 1000
    • super sharp image
    • design
    • bad quality
    • no clear manual
    • unclear explanations about certain options or functions
    • HDR is a disaster on windows 10
    • aura sync only works if you uninstall all other rgb software

    The monitor is of extremely poor quality and broke after 3 days. While playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey on 4k 120hz and HDR was not turned on I got a black screen and the monitor could no longer display an image, tried several cables as well as other ports such as HDMI but nothing could fix this, coolblue solved this very professionally and I will get a new one sent hopefully it will last longer than 3 days

    I think the monitor is definitely worth it.
    • Great picture
    • The 144hz really makes a difference compared to 60hz
    • Fun fashions to choose
    • Reasonable speakers
    • Not really a downside, gives quite a lot of light
    • Power consumption

    I had bought this monitor because my old one broke, I have now placed it there and immediately I see the difference, the quality of the screen ensures that games work much better.
    I did have to figure out how to set the screen to 144hz, but later it turned out that it was due to the HDMI that couldn't keep it up, so I had to replace it with a displayport, no problem because it was included, just go into the settings and voila 144hz.
