Asus tuf gaming vg289q

For many people, buying a 4K monitor for their gaming needs is just a pipe dream, and this hope may not be realized due to the huge price tag of most high-resolution gaming panels.

Having said that, ASUS has decided that it is time to launch a budget-oriented 4K gaming monitor that provides high resolution and immersion within the budget of the price range. That's right, your ASUS VG289Q meets all the requirements for single player games.

Although this is not the best-performing monitor on the market, it does offer something other 4K monitors don’t: an affordable price. In the next article, we will test the color accuracy, image quality and overall game performance of the VG289Q.

So there are still many things to experience, let's not waste time sneaking into them!

I have used a lot of TUF gaming monitors over the years, but it still surprises me that its design rarely changes. VG289Q provides a fairly basic aesthetic, very suitable for offices and homes. Although the display does not offer much in terms of gaming aesthetics, it is still more exciting than a general office panel.

Having said that, this monitor strikes a delicate balance between productivity and gaming aesthetics, and is designed to adapt to almost any environment-intelligence. The ASUS logo can be seen on the bottom bezel, with a chrome finish, as you would expect, and more TUF markings can be found on the bottom of the bracket. Although the stand is very basic, it does offer some design features, including the new Aztec design etched into the base and all the red accent.

Design-wise, there's really nothing noteworthy on the back, save for more Aztec engravings and some fancy red text, indicating the adjustability of the stand.

From a workmanship quality standpoint, ASUS TUF Gaming VG289Q performs well in this regard. However, before we discuss the pros, let's quickly talk about the negatives.

First, the entire screen appears to be made primarily of plastic, including the stand. Although this isn't a big deal and actually reduces the weight of the screen, it doesn't feel as sturdy as other screens that use stronger materials. In other words, in terms of build quality, this is about the only negative impact I can find.

Overall this monitor is well made and hardly shakes when used, perfect for gamers who like occasional bursts.

Like many displays today, the VG289Q is equipped with an anti-reflective (matte) coating with a hardness of 3H. The coating does an excellent job of reducing sources of natural and artificial light, adding a layer of immersion to the gaming experience of this display during use.

ASUS VG289Q is equipped with a very slim frame, which helps to create a real sense of immersion. By combining the 9mm top and side bezels with the near borderless design, it's easy to understand why people are immersing themselves in 4K gaming on this panel. The

's bottom bezel is closer to 20mm, but due to careful design, it won't affect the overall viewing experience.

If you frequently follow our monitor reviews, you will know the good reviews we give to some of the other panels in the TUF Gaming series. As far as the booth is concerned, ASUS is one of the best brands, and its VG289Q provides the same level of functionality and robustness that you would expect from more advanced options.

This affordable 4K monitor has all the features you need for gaming and casual viewing. It is equipped with adjustment of tilt, height, rotation and even pivot, things that are rarely seen on a monitor of this size and price. All the features feel very smooth and sturdy, and there was hardly any shaking the entire time I tested it.

Here are the specific functions of the stand:

ASUS VG289Q does not provide as many inputs as we expect, only 2 x HDMI 1.4, 1 x DisplayPort 1.2 and 3.5mm headphone audio jacks. Although this is good for most people

ASUS monitor is suspected to come with it. Adding a timer or FPS counter is also an option for this monitor, which can be easily changed in the game enhancement section.

You can also use the built-in audio speaker to easily find and adjust volume changes.

Next, we will look at the color accuracy and image quality that this panel provides. Asus says that the VG289Q offers a color gamut of 90.IP3, which beats most gaming monitors on the market today (and this price). With such a statement, it will be very interesting to see how accurate the colors are on this monitor.

As can be seen from the table above, we decided to test the VG289Q's three color presets for color accuracy. For me, these are probably the most popular presets provided by the monitor, covering most of the people who would choose this particular panel.

out of the box, I was impressed with the results provided by this monitor - it brought in good white point, depth of black, and contrast at the user preset (out of the box). Even better, the average increment is 1.88 and the colors provided by the default preset are very accurate.

Next, we tested the FPS preset and as expected almost all the results dropped compared to the user preset. While the white point is still very good at 6655K, the black depth, contrast, and average boost have all decreased compared to what we think is the ideal result. Contrast is what matters most to me personally, seeing it drop from roughly 1000: 1 to 660: 1. In other words, the average color increase is still very acceptable, at a total of 2.66.

Finally, we decided to run a preset that is more suitable for entertainment and leisure viewing. We ran the Scenery preset through some initial tests, and the results were unpredictable. The average increment is 4.1, and the white point is the highest value we recorded (6674K). The black depth and contrast are good, but in general, this particular preset is not as precise as we hoped.

We performed a more in-depth color accuracy test on the most accurate uncalibrated preset to understand how it fits into a wider color gamut. We chose user settings, and the results surprised us. Although most of the results are the same, one point in this test is the excellent maximum delta value of 4.68. Although this is not ideal as an average number, it is really good for the maximum increase of all the colors tested.

That is, we did not waste time calibrating the monitor to see how many accurate colors we can get on this panel. As can be seen from the results above, ASUS VG289Q provides extremely accurate colors after quick calibration. Before doing this, we change the R / G / B numbers to 100/95/100, as these are considered the most accurate.

We conducted in-depth tests after calibration, and as expected, the results were greatly improved. The white point is close to perfect at 6556K, and the black depth is 0.1125 cd/m². What is even more impressive, however, is the average delta of 0.19, which is one of the lowest values we have seen from any panel we have tested. The maximum increment is well below 1, which makes it a very accurate panel from a color point of view. The

panel uniformity is a test we ran to check the uniformity of brightness and color on the screen. During this test, the central square was used as the reference space. Then test all other squares to see how far it differs from the reference value. In an ideal world, we would like each square to be green, which means it did not break the differential threshold, which we can set at the beginning of the test.

Note: The results will vary from panel to panel.

The overall uniformity of the panel left a deep impression on us, and there was almost no change when comparing brightness and color difference.

On many modern panels, you will see huge differences in the corners; however, this is not the case here. Almost all parts of the monitor showed good uniformity scores, resulting in almost all sectors being classified as "green".

The viewing angle of this panel is very good, with only a small color deviation under extreme viewing angles. In most cases, the horizontal and vertical viewing angles are very good, allowing you to use this monitor in a clustered setting.

Speaking of color gamut briefly, ASUS has launched this panel, which provides 90% of the DCIP3 color spectrum. This is wider than sRGB offers, so it will be interesting to see where it falls.

As can be seen from the above results, ASUS VG289Q scores very high in color gamut, bringing 99.7% of sRGB, 82.8obe RGB and 87.4° IP3 coverage to the

table. This is exactly what ASUS has on its specification list, which not only gives me confidence in this panel, but also confidence in the brand of ASUS.

Finally, we quickly checked the brightness level to understand the location of the display. The following are our test results:

Fast forward the game, it can be said with certainty that this monitor is very unpredictable. First, let's start on the bright side.

For me, the biggest advantage of this monitor is the immersive features it offers during gaming. When I was playing single player games like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, I really felt like I was always drawn to the story. Not only is the image quality absolutely flawless, but in most cases the overall gameplay is very smooth. We've obviously enabled FreeSync, which means that a lot of the screen clipping that usually appears on 60Hz panels has been removed. Also, all the colors

The first game tested on this panel and yes, you guessed it, guessed it, and the experience ended. Before continuing, it would be clear to return the switch to 60 Hz, as it is worth mentioning the use of 240 Hz monitors on the day day day day day day day day day Day day day. However, for the purpose of this article, I tried to open my heart.

I said, CS: I went to a horrible feeling. It is difficult to explain, but for example, when spraying the weapon through smoke, I only felt the "Judari" and the delay. If it makes sense, everything was a bit in the 1990s. The lack of high update rates has actually reduced the overall quality of the game. He moved to response time and things were not always better. Since the response time is evaluated at 5 ms, it is safe to say that the ghost is safer than the ghost is safer when you play a quick title, including CS: Go, Dirt 5 and Cod.

The super evaluation was not possible, but pixels can be easily collected where the color can not easily change quickly.

In addition, the HDR monitored was not used, but it has been added considerably to the general visualization experience. Usually, it was a thick bright part, but I made a little more detail, but there is nothing to write a house.

Finally, as I said to the first, the game was very beaten and personally loves for me. It worked well with the title of Shighplayer, but it was super short in other competitive game styles.

Then it has it, our Game Monitor Asus VG289Q 4K US has a comprehensive breakdown. For me, I feel that this panel really fills the void in today's market-budget monitoring monitor division. For

people, buy 4K Game Monitor are just a dream tube, equipped with a large price tag equipped with excellent price tags. That said, ASUS addressed this problem by providing the market with an efficient budget 4K monitor.

While doing the best for competitive games, it will surely cancel many correct boxes when it becomes a complete and overall immersive title.

Ultimately, if you are looking for a 4K budget game monitor for immersive games and ballast consoles, ASUS VG289Q will definitely be on your list. It also leaves a wide range of colors and the box to provide excellent color accuracy and is ideal for editing with SRGB and

DCIP3 color spectra.
