ultra-niche products, only niche gaming monitors suitable for single player Games, racing games, and of course flight simulators. Anyway, there are many people who can enjoy games with black bars, and theoretically set the resolution in the game they want, while still retaining extra for other tasks Screen space.

The display under the microscope today is ASUS ROG Strix XG43VQ, which is an ultra-widescreen gaming monitor, and we have been eager to get it. Over the years, the ASUS ROG Strix department has brought us many excellent gaming monitors, but we I haven’t bought a lot of ultra-wide monitors before, but in any case, this model has a lot of boxes ticked on the paper. The

is equipped with a specification sheet containing advanced features, so let’s not waste time looking at what this monitor offers Function too.

G The previous calibration effect is not good XG43VQ is in stock, If you think there is a bicycle or a cooler inside, you will be forgiven, it is heavy. It is beautifully packaged, and it can be said that the display is intact. This display adopts the tool-free design that we have seen in other Asus displays It can be assembled by yourself, even if the panel feels like a heavy surfboard. The bracket is divided into two parts, and then the panel can be easily snapped into the bracket, thanks to the overlapping design, which reduces some weight. The

monitor comes with what you need All necessary panels to cover messy ports and connections between the monitor and the base. We also saw an accessory box that includes a power plug, USB cable, HDMI cable, and DisplayPort cable. The

caliber gaming monitor has many design points and advanced features that we need to study carefully, especially when considering the price of this monster. We will carefully study the overall design, build quality and main functions of the XG43VQ equipment. ASUS ROG Strix brand

monitors usually look special. What I like most about the aesthetics of the XG43VQ is its metallic gray appearance and lack of extra gameplay we sometimes see on ROG. There are no fancy logos or flashes of RGB lights, only a chrome-plated front and center logo and that dazzling ultra-wide curved panel. Excluding the size of

, the exquisite design of XG43VQ is what I really like, rather than bright colors, sharp angles and RGB lighting, I believe many people will agree. The

bracket uses a three-pronged design to support the super long panel above. I have to say that it is very elegant. The stand has an all-gray appearance with cutouts for cable management.

In terms of manufacturing quality, Asus has a certain degree of expectations, because even their low-end displays tend to be durable. ROG Strix XG43VQ excels in build quality, and every aspect of the display feels robust and well-made. The housing around the panel is made of strong, completely scratch plastic. I gave him the monitor once and tried to remove some streams from the frame but couldn't do it, it was tough. The

bracket base is primarily metal, which is very heavy, providing sufficient support for the panel and excellent weight distribution. Despite the width of a car, the stand doesn't take up much desk space and can be used by multiple gamers.

It is worth mentioning that the mounting components of the stand are also of high quality, and the transition of the monitor between different tilts and rotations is smooth. The

XG43VQ panel has an anti-glare matte coating. When playing or working, the coating works well when dealing with external light sources (especially daylight). I tested this monitor near the large glass entrance to the WePC office and it has not been affected by daylight or office lighting. The slim bezels on this

display aren't surprising, but they add a lot to the overall look aesthetic. Of course, the focus of the ultra-wide screen is to eliminate the annoying gaps/bezels between dual monitor settings, but we see a total of 9mm bezels on the top and sides, and 21mm on the bottom. .

If you have been crazy enough to combine two of them in some way, then the bezel is thin enough to bring a pleasant gaming experience. Chapter

Bracket, visually, is one of the best

I found this monitor very easy to put in the perfect position, no matter how you adjust the monitor, it feels smooth and can be adjusted effortlessly.

In terms of connectivity, the rear of the XG43VQ is pretty standard. The monitor has 2 x HDMI 2.0 and 1 x DisplayPort 1.4. I am using DisplayPort 1.4. Now I always use the DisplayPort connection as much as possible because it has several advantages, mainly the higher bandwidth and the specifications allow me to connect HDMI devices. By using this connection, you can use FreeSync 2 technology, 120Hz refresh rate, and HDR, so overall it's great, but it's worth mentioning that you need to loosen the cable a bit after unpacking. Other

inputs include 3.5mm input and output ports, 2 x USB 3.0 (downstream) and

1 x USB 3.0 (upstream), which means you can connect some peripherals to the monitor as needed. The

OSD with ASUS Display is generally easy to use and has a simple mechanism. ROG Strix XG43VQ further simplifies operations, and now all operations can be completed with a single button. The joystick / release button feels great and is the perfect size for navigating through various menus. When you touch the joystick for the first time, no matter which direction you press, you will see a shortcut menu. This is extra pressure to access the shortcut, but this is a feature that I really like because I often press the button the wrong way until I get used to the general controls.

To access the main menu, press the up button twice to display the ROG OSD menu. From here you can access GameVisual, GamePlus, Color, Image, PBP Settings, Input Selection, and System Settings.

In GameVisual, you can access a variety of preset color modes. We tested three of these modes and will introduce them later, but the modes I change the most are FPS mode, Movie mode, Career mode, and User mode. This extensive list of presets means that more users will be able to get quick color settings to match their personal preferences without having to calibrate it like we do.

In the picture, you can change the sharpness, enable / disable FreeSync, adjust the blue light filter, and enable HDR.

In terms of image quality and color accuracy, the out-of-the-box ASUS ROG Strix XG43VQ is a bit disappointing. I ran some initial testing in the career, sRGB, and user modes to find some pretty average results, with a few exceptions.

Initial testing of the three selected presets showed that the XG43VQ's white point was quite disappointing, but there were still some deep blacks, depending on the mode itself. In racing mode, we see that the black reading of the monitor is 0.071 cd / m², while in sRGB mode it is 0.1485 cd / m². Gamma is set to 2.2, and all our readings show this, and the results in all three modes are between 2.22 and 2.24.

Although we saw the best average DeltaE readings in sRGB, after running an in-depth sRGB test, the results were quite disappointing to say the least, with the maximum DeltaE being 10.26. Due to the limited customization of sRGB mode, I choose to calibrate in user mode. The following is an in-depth sRGB test for the calibration test.

When calibrating the monitor, I noticed that blue is still prominent on white. When trying to make it as accurate as possible, the RGB settings were set to 53, 69, and 100 respectively. The white point after calibration is almost perfect. Although the black and contrast aren't particularly good, the calibration setting makes the colors infinite compared to the out-of-the-box settings. The calibration saw the average DeltaE reading from 4.36 to 0.55.

After calibrating the gaming monitor, we'll check the actual panel uniformity, you guessed it, the panel uniformity test. In this test, we use the central square as a reference and test each of the other squares to see the differences.

In an ideal world, we would like each square to turn green again, but we are very happy that each square shows that it passes the nominal tolerance. The

result shows the 5 x 5 grid we tested on the XG43VQ panel, and as you can see, the display performs well. If you were to inspect the panel, you might say that the left side performed poorly, but overall, the panel showed consistent results with accurate colors and brightness.

ASUS ROG Strix XG43VQ uses a VA panel and is known for its good black, responsiveness and a solid combination of viewing angles. All of this sounds real, especially the viewing angle. This monitor was my main source of movies and TV last week. I found that no matter where I sit, except for the absolute limbs, I can see what is happening on the screen. When viewed from the side, the color may drop slightly, but overall, I am very satisfied with the viewing angle. When

calibrates the XG43VQ, the DisplayCal software is used, which shows us the monitor's color gamut coverage and volume figures for sRGB, Adobe RGB, and DCI P3.

As you can see, the color gamut and volume coverage are 99.4% and 126.7%, but the monitor is only lower than the advertised 90 I P3. Our result shows 89.8%, but I think we can round it up. Overall, we were impressed with the color gamut results, making it a viable display for gamers who also need accurate colors every day.

Speaking of games, I found this monitor to be too big for the games I usually start, but not all of them are usually FPS related. The immersive nature of Battlefield 5 is me


Whether you are racing the Assetto Corsa or flying the BF5, the monitor really immerses you in what you are doing and enjoying a particular title. If your PC can run games normally in windowed mode, then it will be able to use a large amount of screen space, just as I did when I tested CS: GO. I have black bars running and sitting in the middle of the CS: GO window (what a waste).

Regardless, this is a gaming monitor designed for immersive action, flight sim fans, and racing sim enthusiasts. Eliminate the gap between two monitor setup in a stylish way. My only criticism is that I prefer a higher resolution than 3840 x 1200, but I can certainly see the appeal of those looking for a dual-monitor setup.

’s 120Hz refresh rate and FreeSync 2 HDR means you can get an excellent gaming experience from all aspects of this responsive curved display.

If you like immersive games, flight simulators, racing games, or you just like movie nights, this monitor will add fun to your settings. With ASUS ROG Strix XG43VQ, the initial color test may be a bit disappointing, but there are enough presets so that most users can easily get colors according to their personal preferences. After

calibration, the changes are obvious, and it feels less vigorous, but overall it is still good. This gaming monitor has a lot of gaming features, so it's not surprising that it's specifically aimed at the gaming market, but I can see that some designers like the borderless ultra-wide display as well. Thanks to the response time of 1 millisecond MPRT and 4 milliseconds G2G, the

game is a smooth and immersive experience. The 120HZ refresh rate and adaptive sync technology work well together, making these single-player gaming tasks more immersive than ever. The curved panel fascinates you, and once the color is corrected, I enter ultra-wide paradise.

If you have enough desk space, you can say goodbye to the gap in dual monitor setup with the ASUS ROG Strix XG43VQ.
