Csgo introduces setting to spot enemies

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. Chapter

More information on Amazon 444 section IPS 444 You will verify this in the next section Some design (and mechanical) features of this monitor:

I've used a ton of TUF gaming monitors for many years, but their design rarely changes and it still amazes me. VG289Q provides a fairly basic aesthetic, perfect for office and home use. The monitor doesn't offer much in terms of gaming aesthetics, it's still more exciting than ordinary office panels.

That is, this monitor strikes a delicate balance between productivity and gaming aesthetics, designed to fit in almost any smart environment. 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 a few 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, except for more Aztec carvings 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 discussing the pros, let's quickly talk about the negatives.

First, the entire display seems to be mainly made of plastic, including the stand. Although this is not a big deal, and it actually reduces the weight of the display, it is not as sturdy as other displays that use stronger materials. In other words, this is almost the only negative impact I can find in terms of build quality.

Overall, this monitor is well-made and shakes slightly when used. It is very suitable for gamers who like occasional bursts.

Like many displays today, the VG289Q is equipped with an anti-reflective coating (matte) with a hardness of 3H. The coating does an excellent job of mitigating natural and artificial light sources, and provides extra immersion to the game on this monitor during use. The

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 an almost borderless design, it's easy to understand why people are addicted to this panel when gaming in 4K. The

bottom frame is closer to 20 mm, but due to careful design, it will not affect the overall viewing experience.

If you often follow the reviews of our monitors, you will realize our praise for 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, something that is rarely seen in 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 fine 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 offers. ASUS said that the VG289Q offers a 90.IP3 color gamut, which outperforms most gaming monitors on the market today (and at this price). With such a statement, it will be very interesting to see how accurate the colors on this monitor are.

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

From the beginning, I was impressed with the results provided by this monitor-it provides good white point, black depth and contrast under user presets (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 unsurprisingly almost all the results dropped compared to the user preset. Although the white point is still very good at 6655K, the depth of black, contrast, and average boost have all decreased compared to the ideal result we thought. 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, with an overall value 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 testing, and the results were smooth. The average increment is 4.1 and the white point is the highest value we recorded (6674K). Black depth and contrast are good, but overall, this particular preset doesn't provide the precision we'd hoped for.

We ran a deeper color accuracy test on the more accurate uncalibrated preset to understand how it performed across a wider color gamut. We chose the user settings and were pleasantly surprised by the results. Although most of the results are the same, the only conclusion of this test is an excellent delta maximum of 4.68. Although this is not ideal as an average number, it is really good for the maximum increment of all tested colors.

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

We ran tests in depth after calibration and unsurprisingly the results have improved tremendously. The white point is near perfect at 6556K and the depth of black is 0.1125 cd / m². What's even more impressive, though, is the 0.19 average increment - this is one of the lowest values we've seen on any panel we've tested. The maximum magnification is much less than 1, which is a very accurate panel from a color point of view.

Panel Uniformity is a test we perform to verify the brightness and color uniformity of the entire 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 slight color shift 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 a wider range than sRGB provides, so it will be interesting to see where it is.

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

coverage are brought to the table. This is almost exactly what ASUS is on their specs list, it not only gives me confidence in this panel, but also in the ASUS brand.

Finally, we quickly check the brightness level to understand where the monitor is located. The following are the results of our tests:

Quickly in the game, it's safe to say that this monitor is very popular. First, let's start on the bright side.

For me, the biggest advantage of this monitor is the immersive features it offers during games. 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 perfect, but most of the game 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. And 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 box to provide excellent color accuracy and is ideal for editing with SRGB and

DCIP3 Color Spectra.
