Testers hailed the Gigabyte Aorus FV43U as an ideal option for casual gaming and media creation. They were in awe of the picture quality brought about by its 4K screen and thought its high resolution was quite good for editing. The display also had reviewers from Rtings praise it for its stunning contrast levels, as they affirmed that, unlike the Gigabyte G27Q, blacks remained well visible in a dark room. Product testers from Display Ninja were also satisfied with its 144Hz refresh rate, as they confirmed that this was ideal for tear-free gameplay.

Still, the monitor’s poor viewing angles and lack of ergonomic adjustments did not go unnoticed by reviewers, as they had a fairly difficult time viewing the monitor from the side.

The Gigabyte Aorus FV43U is a high-end 43-inch monitor that was announced in early 2021. Similar to most of the best gaming monitors in the market, it has a 4K screen resolution for sharp picture quality and a high enough contrast ratio to keep blacks well visible in a dark room. It shares a 144Hz refresh rate with the Gigabyte M34WQ, and since it also features two HDMI 2.1 ports, users will be able to connect it to modern consoles such as the PS5 and the Xbox X Series. Its input lag is as low as a lot of other top-tier displays for fast gaming responsiveness, and its color accuracy is high enough for color-sensitive work.
