Pro Suitable for content creation
This Asus PG348Q is an excellent tool for content creators who like to capture, edit, and upload their gaming footage to YouTube or some other popular media services as the monitor offers a great amount of on-screen real estate, combined with the full sRGB coverage.
Pro Excellent viewing angles
The PG348Q looks good even from sides as the monitor offers some of the best viewing angles on the market. You’ll notice some color and shadow shifting only when the viewing angle exceeds 50 degrees, which is an outstanding result, as even the best IPS panels usually start to degrade at the 40 degrees angles.
Pro Adequate motion handling
The Asus PG348Q recreates relatively good-looking motion, with only some minor trails of motion blur following fast-moving objects on the screen. While fighting motion blur, the panel’s main weapon is the overdrive feature which allows each pixel of the Asus PG348Q to change its color within only five milliseconds. Unfortunately, some tiny trails of motion blur manage to get through.
Alternatively, you can use Asus’s ultra-low-motion-blur feature to eliminate the unwanted effect of motion blur, but that would cost you G-Sync, which can’t be used together with the ULMB.
Even while playing fast-paced FPS games, the Asus PG348Q feels highly responsive because of its low input lag of only 5,3 ms. Even though there are some faster panels available on the market, it is highly unlikely that you will be able to feel the 5,3 ms delay.
Monitor’s input lag is a time delay needed to process a frame generated by a computer.
Pro Excellent picture quality
The monitor’s native contrast ratio, peak brightness, gamma, and color uniformity are on par with what the best gaming monitors on the market offer.
The Asus PG348Q displays fascinating images, with crisp and vivid colors, accurate intermediate tones, and deep blacks. Colors pop and look vibrant thanks to the monitor’s peak brightness of 309 nits. Mid-tones look life-like since the monitor’s average gamma deviation is only 1.3% off from the perfect value. Blacks look rich and consistent because, while the panel’s native contrast ratio of 1081:1 manages to push blacks to relatively intense levels, the monitor’s overall uniformity dE of 0.78 ensures that the dark tones don’t blend with bright spots nearby. Such high color uniformity is a rare feature even for high-end monitors.
Moreover, the PG348Q’s color inaccuracies are virtually invisible to the human eye, because of it’s small color gamut error dE of 1.71.
