Asus TUF Gaming VG32VQ gaming monitor review

Modern gaming monitors have become overly complicated beasts that set out to be everything to everyone; from hardcore gamers to precision colorists. This inevitably leads to compromises or absurdly high asking prices. This is why I like the ASUS TUF Gaming VG32VQ. This $400 32-inch curved monitor focuses on the essentials and not fancy feature lists or outlandish designs. The VG32VQ is laser-focused on PC gamers and console owners who want a single monitor for their gaming.

Asus TUF Gaming VG32VQ

Size: 31.5-inch
Resolution: 2560 x 1440, 16:9
Panel: VA
Refresh: 144Hz
Response: 1ms
Adaptive Sync: AMD FreeSync
Special Features: ASUS ELMB Sync, GameVisual

To that end, ASUS has equipped the VG32VQ with only three video inputs: a pair of HDMI 2.0 ports for consoles and a DisplayPort 1.2 for high-speed PC gaming. The monitor also has built-in speakers, but the less said about those the better. Best to stick with headphones via the built-in headphone jack. The VG32VQ also supports HDR10, a standard more commonly found in TVs than gaming monitors. This means your Xbox One/Series X|S and PlayStation 4/5 consoles will recognize the VG32VQ as an HDR capable display—something plenty of HDR monitors fail at.
