The Asus ROG Swift PG259QN is an outstanding display. Higher refresh rate than we’ve seen before. Best response times for the clearest motion. G-Sync variable overdrive. IPS display with excellent viewing angles. Elite factory calibration.
Most people probably do not need the 360Hz refresh rate, and it's rather expensive, but for the minority that want the fastest possible display, Asus has nailed it with the PG259QN.
Gamers with the graphics and financial capabilities will flock to the Asus ROG Swift PG259QN. Its tremendous speed and response, courtesy of a 360Hz refresh rate and Adaptive-Sync, will make you a better gamer. With accurate color, solid contrast and decent HDR, it is one of the best pure gaming monitors we’ve reviewed to date.
The ASUS PG259QN is the best gaming monitor available for serious competitive gaming thanks to its 360Hz refresh rate, fast pixel response time, and NVIDIA G-SYNC. It also offers plenty of additional features, such as ULMB, ergonomic design with RGB lighting, and more.
The Asus ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN is the fastest gaming monitor you can buy today, and its stratospheric 360Hz refresh rate is only part of a nearly flawless total package.
The Asus PG259QN can make the 144Hz model seem slow, but it is still limited when it comes to image quality and vibrancy. We expected better color vibrance from the monitor, but its superb factory calibration more than makes up for it. The Asus PG259QN is your best choice if you want the fastest plug and play gaming monitor available, but be aware that these characteristics cost a pretty penny which many will find impractical.
We think the main drawbacks that might put some people off is the small screen size of 24.5" and the low resolution of only 1920 x 1080. It's a step down from widely available 27" 1440p screens and above, but then this isn't really aimed at those segments anyway. It has a clear niche for gaming fanatics, esports players and those who actually prefer 1080p, a smaller screen and who want the latest and greatest gaming performance and refresh rates. Its size and resolution just make it a bit more limited for other uses we felt.
