The 5 Best ASUS Monitors of 2022 Reviews

Updated
Best ASUS Monitors

We've tested over 30 ASUS monitors. ASUS, also known as AsusTek, was founded in Taiwan in 1989. They make a wide range of gaming monitors with different resolutions and refresh rates, and they also offer monitors aimed at content creators, including portable monitors. Their gaming monitors often offer great performance, and they're reliable, but in terms of price for performance, they're beat out by other brands.

Best ASUS Monitors


  1. Best ASUS Monitor

    ASUS mainly focuses on gaming monitors, so if you're looking for the best ASUS monitor, you'll find a few great gaming options from ASUS' ROG and TUF lineups with high refresh rates, like the ASUS ROG Swift PG279QM. It's an impressive gaming monitor with a 1440p resolution and 240Hz refresh rate, so you get both crisp images and a high refresh rate, as long as your graphics card can handle that. It's one of ASUS' few native G-SYNC monitors, which is ideal if you have an NVIDIA graphics card and want to take full advantage of it. It supports NVIDIA's Reflex Latency Analyzer, which measures the latency of your entire setup, so you know which sources are causing the most lag. It has low input lag with high-frame-rate sources, and even though it increases with 60 fps sources, it's still low.

    Thanks to its fast response time, motion looks smooth across its entire refresh rate range, and it has a flicker-free backlight to reduce eye strain during long gaming sessions. If you're a competitive esports gamer, you might also want to consider the ASUS ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN, which has a higher 360Hz refresh rate but a lower 1080p resolution, so the PG279QM offers a better balance between resolution and refresh rate if you're looking for the best ASUS gaming monitor.

  2. Best Upper Mid-Range ASUS Monitor

    If you aren't a competitive gamer and you aren't going to take advantage of the 240Hz refresh rate on the ASUS ROG Swift PG279QM, then an upper mid-range ASUS monitor might be better for you. The ASUS ROG Strix XG279Q is part of the ROG gaming lineup and is excellent for gaming. It has a large 27-inch screen with a 1440p resolution, resulting in enough screen space to view more of your game at once. It performs well in bright rooms thanks to its high peak brightness and great reflection handling, meaning you won't have issues using it in a bright environment. It's also great for sharing the screen with a friend for co-op gaming as it has wide viewing angles that make the image look accurate from the sides, and the ergonomic stand is easily adjustable.

    Looking at its gaming performance, it has a 144Hz refresh rate that you can overclock to 170Hz, which is ideal because it isn't too demanding on your graphics card like the PG279QM. It also has incredible motion handling across its entire refresh rate range, resulting in smooth motion while gaming or even while scrolling through long documents.

  3. Best Mid-Range ASUS Monitor

    If you want to save some money, a mid-range gaming monitor like the ASUS ROG Strix XG27AQ is a great choice. It's actually a newer version of the ASUS ROG Strix XG279Q but isn't as versatile because it has slightly worse ergonomics and doesn't get as bright. It has a lower refresh rate than the ASUS ROG Swift PG279QM, which you should expect from a mid-range monitor, but it has the same 1440p resolution for sharp images. It's impressive for gaming, and although it's not certified by AMD for native FreeSync support, it still works fully over the entire refresh rate range and is G-SYNC compatible if you have an NVIDIA graphics card.

    It has low input lag for a smooth and responsive gaming experience, but like some other ASUS monitors, the 60Hz input lag increases, so it isn't the best choice for console gamers. Motion looks smooth thanks to the really quick response time, and it has an optional backlight strobing feature in case you notice any persistence blur. The BFI features also work at the same time as its variable refresh rate (VRR) support, which not all monitors can do. It's also great for co-op gaming because it has wide viewing angles and good ergonomics.

  4. Best Budget ASUS Monitor

    If you're on a budget, ASUS has a few low-cost monitors, particularly from their TUF Gaming lineup. If that's something you're interested in, then we recommend the ASUS TUF Gaming VG259QM. As expected for a low-cost display, it has a lower screen size and lower resolution than the ASUS ROG Swift PG279QM and the ASUS ROG Strix XG279Q, but it still has a high 240Hz refresh rate that you can overclock to 280Hz, which means that you get a fast gaming experience. It also has a few extra gaming features like Shadow Boost to see opponents better in dark games, a virtual crosshair that your system won't detect, and of course VRR support to reduce screen tearing.

    This monitor looks best with high-frame-rate games because it has a quick response time at its max refresh rate and low input lag. Even if the response time remains quick with 60Hz signals, the input lag increases at 60 fps, so you'll notice a delay while gaming, which is a common problem with ASUS TUF Gaming monitors. The ASUS TUF Gaming VG258QM is a slightly cheaper alternative that's very similar to this monitor, but it has a TN panel with worse viewing angles, so it's worth staying with the VG259QM, even if it's a bit more.

  5. Best ASUS Office Monitor

    While ASUS mainly focuses on gaming monitors, they have a few office-oriented monitors in their ProArt lineup. The ASUS ProArt Display PA278CV is a budget-friendly option in that lineup, which mainly focuses on color accuracy and photo editing. It has a large 27-inch screen with a 1440p resolution, delivering clear text and enough space to multitask. It's well-built, and the stand has outstanding ergonomics, providing a very wide swivel range and allowing you to rotate the screen into portrait mode. Its IPS panel also has wide viewing angles, so you can easily share your screen with someone else because the image remains consistent no matter where you view it from.

    If you're a photo editor, you should be happy to know it has very good Adobe RGB coverage, remarkable out-of-the-box accuracy, and impressive gradient handling, so images look life-like. It has a great selection of inputs, including a USB-C input that supports DisplayPort Alt Mode and delivers up to 65W of power, meaning you can charge your tablet or phone with it. There's a similar monitor, the ASUS ProArt Display PA278QV, that costs less and doesn't have this USB-C input, so if you aren't going to take advantage of it, then consider this monitor as both are great for productivity.

Compared to other brands


  • Great gaming performance. ASUS's monitors mainly focus on gaming, and because of that, they offer great gaming performance with fast response times.
  • Very good build quality. With only a few exceptions, ASUS monitors are usually well-built.
  • Excellent ergonomics. Most ASUS monitors have excellent ergonomics, from their office-friendly models to gaming models.

  • Limited versatility. ASUS monitors aren't as versatile as monitors from other brands. They're great for PC gaming, but not as much for console gaming or if you often need something for work too.

ASUS vs LG

Compared to LG, ASUS monitors tend to have better ergonomics and build quality, and often monitors that have higher refresh rates, like 360Hz. However, LG monitors tend to be better overall for gaming, especially console gaming, and they're more versatile for other uses.

ASUS vs Samsung

Samsung monitors are usually better for dark room gaming and HDR gaming than ASUS monitors, but ASUS models are more reliable because they have fewer issues than monitors from Samsung, particularly with VRR support.

Their monitors are usually well-built and have excellent ergonomics. However, they aren't as versatile as other brands, and they're quickly losing ground as one of the best brands for gaming monitors. Still, if you're a PC gamer, you'll be happy with an ASUS display.

LINEUP
