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 retaining extra screens for other tasks 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 before us I haven't bought many ultra-wide monitors, but anyway, this model has many 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 now.

When the ASUS ROG Strix XG43VQ arrives, if you think there is a bike or a cooler on it, you can forgive it, it is too heavy. It is very well packaged, you can say for sure The monitor is This monitor uses the same tool-free design as other ASUS monitors and can be self-assembled, even if the panel feels like a heavy surfboard. The stand is split into two parts and the overlapping design reduces some weight so it can be easily attached Insert the panel slot into the stand The

monitor comes with all the necessary panels you need to cover cluttered ports and connections between the monitor and the stand. 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 check carefully, especially 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. My favorite aspect of the XG43VQ’s appearance is its metallic gray appearance and the lack of extra gaming luster we sometimes see on ROG. There are no fancy logos or flashes of RGB lights, just the front and center of a chrome logo and that dazzling ultra-wide curved panel. Excluding the

size, the XG43VQ's exquisite design is something that I really like - the bright colors, sharp angles, and RGB lighting - I think a lot of people will agree. The

bracket has a three-prong design, in order to support the extended panel above, it must be said that it is quite fashionable. The bracket has a completely gray appearance with cutouts for cable management.

In terms of build quality, Asus has a certain degree of expectations, because even its lower-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 heavy and provides sufficient panel support 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 adjustment components of the base are also high-quality, and the transition of the monitor between different tilts and twists is very smooth. The

XG43VQ panel has a matte anti-reflective coating. When playing or working, the coating performs well in dealing with external light sources (especially daylight). I tried this monitor in the WePC office near our large glass entrance, and it still did not prevent me from using daylight or office lighting. The slim bezels of this

display are not surprising, but they add a lot of beauty to the overall appearance. Of course, the point 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 find this monitor is very easy to position perfectly, no matter how I adjust it, it feels smooth, and fine-tuning is effortless.

In terms of connectivity, everything on the back of the XG43VQ is very standard. The display has 2 x HDMI 2.0 and 1 x DisplayPort 1.4. I am using DisplayPort 1.4. Now I always use DisplayPort connection as much as possible, because there are several benefits, mainly the higher bandwidth and specifications for connecting HDMI devices. When using this connection, you can use FreeSync 2 technology, 120Hz refresh rate and HDR, so it's great overall, but it's worth mentioning that you need to loosen the cable slightly 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 I will introduce them later, but the ones that 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 the need for calibration like us.

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 revealed that the XG43VQ's white point is quite disappointing, but there are 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 our readings show this very consistently, the results for all three modes are between 2.22 and 2.24.

Although we have seen the best average DeltaE readings in sRGB, after an in-depth sRGB test, the results are quite disappointing: to say the least, the maximum DeltaE is 10.26. Due to sRGB mode limitation for customization, I choose to calibrate in user mode. The sRGB depth test for the calibration test is shown below.

When calibrating the monitor, I noticed that the blue is still prominent on the white, and when I try to make it as accurate as possible, the RGB settings are 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. From the side, the color may be affected, but in general, I am very satisfied with the viewing angle.

used DisplayCal software when calibrating XG43VQ, which showed us the color gamut coverage of the monitor and the volume figures of sRGB, Adobe RGB and DCI P3.

As you can see, the color gamut coverage and volume are 99.4% and 126.7%, which are excellent, but the monitor does not reach the advertised 90° I P3. Our result shows 89.8%, but I think we can round it up . Overall, we were impressed with the results of the color gamut, making it a viable display for gamers who also need accurate colors every day.

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


Whether you're racing the Assetto Corsa or flying the BF5, the screen really immerses you in what you're doing and it's incredibly enjoyable when playing specific titles. If your PC can run games normally in windowed mode, 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).

In any case, 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 resolution higher than 3840 x 1200, but I can certainly see the appeal of those studying dual monitor setups. The addition of a

120Hz refresh rate and FreeSync 2 HDR means you can get an excellent gaming experience in every aspect of this responsive curved display.

If you like immersive games, flight simulators, racing games, or even movie nights, this monitor will add fun to your setup. With ASUS ROG Strix XG43VQ, the initial color test might be a bit impressive, but there are enough presets for most users to easily get colors that match their personal preferences. After the

calibration, the changes are obvious and it feels less vigorous, but overall it's still good. This gaming monitor has many built-in gaming functions, so it is not surprising that it is specifically geared towards the gaming market, but I can see that some designers also like the ultra-wide borderless design. Due to the response time of 1 millisecond MPRT and 4 millisecond G2G,

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

If you have desk space, you can always say goodbye to the space in the middle of the ASUS ROG Strix XG43VQ dual-monitor setup.
