    Fantastic ultrawide gaming monitor with a business slant

    Dennis De Heus | 16 April 2020 | In this version: ASUS ROG STRIX Curved XG43VQ | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Good basic settings in terms of image. Picture phenomenal.
    • Many connectivity options for multiple laptops/PC
    • No-nonsense design without frills
    • Truly a “Competitive edge” in FPS games. No ghosting whatsoever
    • Very clear unboxing instructions
    • Difficulty switching between connected devices
    • Sound quality not optimal
    • Somewhat high price

    After the easy unpacking and my family's surprise at the enormous size of Papa's new business monitor, I immediately got to work. Laptop connected and immediately the benefits of three open files simultaneously on the screen without having to switch. Then a game of Call of Duty and also blown off the chair here. What a picture quality and experience. My feeling is that most people mainly invest a lot in a PC and sometimes make the monitor somewhat subordinate, while this is precisely the medium that provides the experience. Never had such an easy to install screen with this extreme quality. Despite the fairly high price, I bought it and I don't regret it for a second. Been working with it for a week now and it will never go away. One last thing about Cool Blue's delivery and communication. Mega friendly delivery person, delivered within a day and I like the humor in the communication. So I am very satisfied.

    Good quality image, nice design

    Hussein | 11 August 2020 | In this version: ASUS ROG STRIX Curved XG43VQ | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • good quality
    • good firm
    • subtle curve
    • takes up less space than you think
    • well adjustable
    • heavy
    • resolution not always supported

    I am very happy with the product, I was very skeptical about curved monitors at first, quality is great, the only drawback is that the widescreen resolution is not always well supported by apps and Netflix and Disney+, fullscreen is not always possible.

    Most games support it without any problems, although I now play them in windowed mode on half the screen so I can multitask.

    PS. Thanks in part to my history in fitness, I was able to assemble this hefty beast on my own, and it wasn't easy, ask for help unless you want to pull a muscle.

    Great, really recommended.

    Koen | 23 December 2020 | In this version: ASUS ROG STRIX Curved XG43VQ | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • HDR is really an improvement if you are not used to it
    • Totally new game experience through huge field of view
    • Also ideal for business use: screen can be divided into smaller windows
    • Solidly built, good standard
    • All cables included
    • External power supply, but is not such a disaster

    Bought this monitor mainly for gaming at 4K. Previously I had a midrange 24" full HD, the difference is amazing. HDR in particular provides a completely new experience. The large field of view means you are completely 'in' the game. There is really no going back to a conventional monitor for gaming! Also very suitable for office work. I was used to two 24" monitors, but this screen can be divided into 3 or 4 screens, which you have next to or above each other. Super efficient if you run multiple applications at the same time.
    Disclaimer: screen now runs on an RX-580 with Freesync and has a great performance, even on ultra settings. Soon I will switch to an RTX3070 so it will become clear to what extent the screen is G-sync compatible.

    Lovely screen for working from home and gaming
    • Very large
    • Beautiful design
    • Blue light filter
    • Razor-sharp image
    • Comment from your friends
    • Menu not really user-friendly
    • My wife's initial reaction

    It was time to upgrade the home workplace and bought this unit during the Christmas period (2nd chance).

    Delivery:
    Because of the impossible dimensions of the box, the postman came running over, and to be honest, I was also a bit shocked.
    The box itself was damaged so I kept my heart on whether there was any damage to the screen itself (whether this damage was because it was a 2nd chance product or by PostNL I don't know).

    To install:
    Installing the screen is very easy and you will also receive clear instructions. Unpacked, installed and put into use within 10 minutes. Screen turned on and checked for damage, but everything was fine.

    Experience:
    I must say, what a relief to work with, wonderful to have 2 or 3 browsers open side by side to work quickly and efficiently. The image is razor sharp and the bluelight filter works very well, at the end of the day I really notice the difference when it is on.

    Altogether:
    Wonderful screen to work with and possibly to play with (immersive), in addition, it does take up some space, but that's just part of it.
    The price is hefty, but when you bought it like me with a discount and then on top of that on a 2nd chance it's not that bad.

    p.s. my wife has now recovered from the shock and she also loves to work with, the disadvantage is now that it is occasionally fighting for the workplace in the house...

    New dimension in gaming!
    • Large screen is a huge asset, especially in first-person games
    • 4K on super ultra wide at this price is the most affordable in the category
    • Many possible settings via on screen display menu
    • Also functions as a (small) USB hub
    • So connected, cables neatly hidden
    • 4K here is 1200 vertical lines and not the normal 2160. Officially a 4K by the way.
    • Clarity about FreeSync, but not clear whether G-sync also applies
    • Consumes (obviously) more energy than a 'normal' screen

    Awesome purchase. The sense of depth and immersion is so much greater than with a regular screen. Compared to a triple screen set-up, there is less visibility, but without the screen edges. The screen is also easier to place than three separate screens. Given the possibilities of the screen, it is also a well-priced product within its class. Note that older games are certainly not made for this aspect ratio, so here and there you will have black bars on the side. If you are an avid streamer, keep in mind that your target audience will probably watch it on a 16:9 and the image will therefore come across differently than you experience it yourself. If you do it purely for your own experience, then I would say: buy, buy, buy!

    What a screen!
    • a lot of screen
    • Easy installation
    • Out-of-the-box settings top
    • PPI could have been a little higher.
    • HDR was a bit too!

    After long dubbing about a 49" or a 43" I finally went for the 43". Reason? I think 1.20m screen on the desk is just a bit too much. Even though the screen is a bit less in terms of pixel density than the larger screens on the market, it is sufficient.

    Ordered the screen via Coolblue, and it was delivered the next day. The installation is quite easy, but in the end you have to lift a 13kg screen on your desk! Once that was up, the screen plugged in.
    And then you see what a beautiful screen you have in front of you, the settings that the screen gets by default are great!

    The only downside I find is that the screen automatically jumps to HDR out-of-the-box when playing games. I eventually turned this off, because the contrast in combination with brightness was too intense for me.

    Tip:
    Install the ASUS software directly to adjust the screen a little better through the software. That helps!

    Also ideal as a monitor for office work

    Perfect to be able to open several programs at the same time on 1 screen.
    Works much more pleasantly

    Prachtige scherm
    • Scherp beeld
    • Erg groot
    • Erg groot

    Wat een ervaring om van 3 schermen naar 1 grote scherm te gaan.
    HDR is fijn. Kwaliteit is meer dan perfect.
    Prijs is naar mijn idee ook erg goed.

    Nice and high quality screen, definitely recommended.
    • Phenomenally large, first take the dimensions where you want to see it.
    • Good image quality for everyday work, tested with Flight Simulator and seen smooth image.
    • Height adjustable and rotatable without moving the foot
    • All possible connections are present.
    • You need a decent video card that can handle the recommended resolution.
    • The USB port is a bit awkward at the bottom.
    • You're used to this so quickly...

    I used to have two 24 inch screens. These were replaced by this curved 43 inch screen. Definitely wouldn't want to go back to my two screens again. The monitor looks great on the desk alone, especially in a corner with that nice curve. That curve is also pleasant to work with because you are almost 'in' the image. Definitely recommended if your video card can handle the resolution. Just keep an eye out for this...

    Much wider than 2 separate monitors
    • Works well with multitasking
    • Automatically turns on and to standby when my PC is turned on and off
    • Monitor stand widely adjustable

    For this I used a 29" ultrawide and also a 24" monitor, but what a relief it is to have everything on a large, wide screen. With the software from Asus you can easily divide the layout of your screens, so that you have, for example, 3 separate windows of approximately 4:3 each. If you divide your windows into 2 areas, you have the size of a 24" monitor per window and you can sit comfortably in the center without looking exactly at a bezel, which would be the case if you had 2 separate monitors.
