When it comes to high-end gaming monitors, it’s always the same type of things shown in reviews – running benchmarks, colorful games, testing out HDR with some games like Cyberpunk 2077 and perhaps running some benchmarks like the UFO Test to show the latency and whatnot. Those methodologies work – but they’re just too generic at this point.

These are all the experiences shared by our very own racing simulator enthusiast – Mr John. He is someone who actually bought those steering wheels, foot pedals, and gearbox controllers and hooked all of them to his own work desk. He liked it so much to the point that he even bought triple monitors to create the “sitting inside a car” feel – but ran into a lot of issues with that setup.
I’m very sure that you guys have heard and seen this monitor before. This is the Samsung Odyssey G9 Neo – a 49-inch 32:9 monitor with bonkers specs and also has NVIDIA G-Sync built-in. This monitor is literally at the top of its class. We did our tests and this is what we found out about this monitor.
It’s no surprise that we all stare at our screens for most of our waking hours – be it for work, recreation, or just to chat with friends. Honestly, that means our eyes get used the most out of our daily lives, so we should definitely take care of it.
This is the Predator X28 monitor. It’s Acer’s highest-end monitor and this review took us a long time because of all the cutting-edge technologies that are built-in. I presume that this is Acer’s new flagship gaming monitor that is also made for high octane esport players as well, since it has Nvidia G-Sync and Nvidia Reflex technologies, alongside high resolution and high refresh rate too.
The MOBIUZ EX3210U gaming monitor is the latest model by BenQ which has 4K resolution and supports up to 144Hz refresh rate. Here’s my review after
Esports players require the utmost performance when it comes to displays. High refresh rate is only a part of the equation – fast pixel response time and minimal motion blur are also required. There are zero distractions on these high-performance monitors, and what we have today, is the AOC C27G2 – the second generation of 27-inch, high-performance monitor in their G-series of monitors.
Introducing, the Gigabyte M34WQ. This monitor is a 34-inch flat ultrawide monitor with a resolution 3440×1440 pixels at up to 144Hz refresh rate with variable refresh rate too. With that said, this monitor is also priced at RM2,399 – but I still think that it is a pretty decent price for a monitor. So, let’s talk about why.
So you’re looking for a superwide monitor on a tighter budget – then you stumbled across the Fire Legend Acer AOpen 43XV1C P, also known as the Acer Nitro XV431C in other countries. This is a 43.8-inch 32:9 monitor with a resolution of 3840×1080 and can go up to 120Hz refresh rate.
If you’re looking for a superwide monitor, then this monitor should be on your list. This is the AOC AGON Curved Gaming Monitor 49″ (AG493UCX). That name is longer than a brontosaurus’s neck, so I’ll just call it the AOC AGON 49-inch in this video.
This is the Dell PremiereColor UP3221Q. It looks just like any other monitor, right? Why does it cost RM38,259 – now discounted to RM18,749!!! Well, to answer that question, we will have to be blunt – this monitor is not meant for consumers like you and me.
