Last Friday, we’re invited to ASUS Malaysia’s office for a showcase a lot of their latest monitors – including the supremely powerful ROG Swift PG27UQ. All of these monitors are already available in Malaysia – or at least soon. monitors that they’re bringing in to the Malaysian market. The latest PG27UQ is the most powerful 144Hz 4K monitor. You really need powerful hardware to run this thing at full speed!
We have the entire price list of all the monitors ASUS has in the market at the end of this page. Same goes to ROG monitors.
ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ
This is dubbed as the “god of all monitors” as it is using a 27-inch 4K IPS panel, can work up to 144Hz refresh rate and even has HDR support and covers 97% of DCI-P3 and 99% Adobe RGB color spaces.
It has a total of 384 dimming zones which makes the screen’s contrast levels better too.
With that, it has RGB lighting at the back, projection light at the base of the stand and there’s also another projector at the top. That makes it look like Batman.
ASUS ProART PA329Q
This monitor is meant for the professionals. It’s a 32-inch professional grade IPS monitor with 4K resolution with quantum dot backlight technology. Comes with 99.5% Adobe RGB color space and ΔE<2, flicker-free, low blue light with TUV certification.
At the left side, the I/O port at the left side with 3x USB 3.0 Type-A ports and a full-size SD card reader. The SD card reader is perfect as people like my photographers don’t need to get another dongle.
We did feel that the monitor is a bit too wobbly, so it’s better to get a monitor arm to hold it in place.
ASUS ZenScreen MB16A
First off, this is a portable monitor that doesn’t have a touchscreen. We were told that there will be another mother that has touchscreen, but that’s yet to come. This MB16A is connected and powered up via a single USB-C cable, and it works with smartphones like Galaxy S9 as well.
It has a folio case which means you can just fold it up and protect it while you put it in the bag.
It also ha a ZenScreen pen, which is ironic since this particular model isn’t touch screen. You can, however, use the pen to sign paperwork or prop the screen up by poking it through the hole.
The MB16A is a 15.6-inch IPS display with 1080p resolution. Comes with some gaming features that we’ve seen in other ASUS monitors.
ASUS Designo MZ27AQ
Do you guys remember the ASUS N-series of laptops that has an external subwoofer? That laptop was offering something that no other laptops had – and for the Designo MZ27AQ, there’s a Harman Kardon branding as it has built-in stereo speakers too.
Following the features that the N-series laptop has, the new Designo MZ27AQ also has SonicMaster technology..
Featuring a 27-inch IPS display with 2K resolution, 100% sRGB color space and has ultra-slim bezels. Comes with flicker-free technology, low blue light with TUV certification as well.
ASUS Designo MX34VQ
While the Designo MX34VQ is a lot different physically, the technology is pretty similar to the previous one.
The Designo MX34VQ is a curved ultrawide 34-inch 2K display with 100Hz refresh rate. It also has Harman Kardon speakers, flicker-free, low blue light with TUV certification. But there’s no external subwoofer this time yet manages to have better sounding bass.
What’s unique about the Designo MX34VQ is the Qi wireless charging pad at the base of the monitor. If your phone supports Qi wireless charging, just put your phone on top and it’ll charge instantly.
ASUS ROG Strix XG258Q
With a 24.5-inch 1080p TN panel, the XG258Q can go up to an insane 240Hz refresh rate with 1ms response time. With that said, it has flicker free technology, trace-free, GamePlus, extreme low motion blur, GameFast Input, FreeSync, and Display Widgets.
It can pivot, height adjust, and swivel as well.
This is a huge monitor that is made for both console and PC gamers who like to sit a little further away. It has a curved 31.5-inch screen that has 1080p VA panel that goes up to 144Hz refresh rate. Think of it like a mini TV and it doesn’t have any ergonomic adjustments at all.
ASUS ROG Strix XG35VQ
On the subject of large displays, the Strix XG35VQ is a 35-inch curved ultrawide monitor that is aimed towards gamers. There are actually more games supporting ultrawide monitors these days without any finnicky cropping or FOV hardlocking like Overwatch.
The ROG Strix XG35VQ has a 3440×1440 resolution VA panel and have GamePlus, Extreme Low Motion Blur, and display widgets as well.
This monitor has a 24-inch 1080p TN panel but can work at 1ms response speed at 75Hz refresh rate. It’s also AMD FreeSync compatible while having features like flicker-free, trace-free, GamePlus, low blue light, and also a 3.5mm mini jack.
It’s also available in 25-inch version, the VG255H. These two monitors are also advertised as monitors for console and PC gamers since it has double HDMI ports.
