What could possibly be the best curved monitor, if not the best widescreen monitor for gaming performance, the Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ is an ultrawide monitor that has a refresh rate that surpasses the typical 120 Hz, or even 144 Hz, that gaming monitors would normally have in addition to having vivid and visuals.

Why We Like It – Asus Rog Swift PG35VQ

The Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ has an enhanced hdr mode to provide stunning visuals with its equally impressive processing speed. It also has a smart fan that can be adjusted through a knob located on the back of the monitor, and the monitor has both a high refresh rate and a fast response time.

Pros
  • Has g-sync ultimate
  • hdr mode
  • Smart fan feature
Cons
  • Very expensive
  • Heavy

Performance

What makes it stand out compared to other gaming monitors such as the Samsung C27HG70, is the fact that this monitor contains nvidia g-sync ultimate technology. It could be the best hdr gaming monitor with how it combines the 500,000:1 contrast ratio of the va panel with the 200 Hz refresh rate and 2 ms response time. Along with the peak brightness of the screen being very bright, there’s also the optional local dimming feature that can help offset that brightness.

Viewing Angle

By being a curved monitor with a screen that has a subtle, but still noticeable curvature, decent viewing angles are easy to find. To make it even easier to find those angles, the screen can also be adjusted by tilting, swivelling, and by height. The curve of the screen itself is what can help avoid higher concentrations of light from shining on the screen in a way that covers most, if not all, of the screen, which is what normally happens to flat monitors.

Durability

The mount is able to withstand the weight of the monitor by also being heavy enough to maintain its balance. Weighing at a total of 29.5 Lbs., the physical aspects of various features such as the aura sync, the size of the screen, the smart fan with its controls, and the inclusion of g sync ultimate would require careful weight distribution so that the monitor doesn’t tip over. Even the more negative customer reviews have not noted having problems involving the stand.

Ports/ Expandability

This monitor contains DisplayPort, USB, and HDMI ports. It has less port types compared to the Philips Brilliance 499P9H, that also included an ethernet port and USB Type C ports. However, despite not having those two types of ports as part of the assortment, the DisplayPort and HDMI ports are still able to provide a convenient way to show high quality visuals while the USB ports provide versatility for all of the devices that can be plugged into them.

Value

It’s much more expensive than the Samsung CHG90 49-Inch Curved Ultrawide Monitor, despite being smaller in comparison. To compensate for the smaller screen, g-sync ultimate was installed along with the aura sync feature so that the monitor can have impressive processing power and some added pizzazz to help make the monitor look nice. The smart fan system can also contribute to the price, especially since the fan’s speed can be adjusted by the controls on the back of the monitor.

Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ Wrap Up

Customer reviews have praised this monitor for its display of colors on both regular and hdr content, decent screen size, and gaming performance. However, more than ROG Swift PG35VQ review has stated that backlight bleeding is possible, although it’s usually not too noticeable and one reviewer said that the local dimming feature can hide it.
