Asus ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN Review

by birtanpublished on November 3, 2020

Hi i'm chris doming and today i'm here with a review of the asus frog swift 360 earth monitor this is a monitor that's the first of its kind in that it bumps the refresh rate up from 240 hertz in most esports monitors today up to 360 hertz if you're looking for the fastest frames and the fastest input lag and the fastest response times this is going to be the new monitored kit the monitor is highly ergonomic with options to swivel go tilt or rotate 90 degrees now we're not sure if you really want to use this as a secondary monitor in its

Landscape mode or portrait mode excuse me this is going to be the main driver for anyone who plays really intense high impact high octane games like counter strike overwatch league of legends or fortnite any games that can get up to 360 frames per second this is going to be the monitor that gets you that little bit of competitive edge that you might have over somebody else who only has a 240 hertz monitor the monitor scored exceptionally well

In color results which we really weren't expecting most gaming monitors they really just do one thing great that's gaming this one on the other hand happened to do really really well in both srgb and dci p3 results now the adobe rgb results were a little bit lower but that's okay again this is a gaming monitor not a professional content creation monitor and we weren't expecting it to do anything in dci as well as it did so that's a bonus on that end in our testing we found that this is one of the

Fastest gaming monitors we've ever seen not only in gaming was it really quick and really responsive our input lag test actually showed it was the fastest monitor we've ever seen getting just 1.1 milliseconds of input delay for comparison's sake our previous winner was the msi optics mtg 341 cqr which is an ultra wide that got 1.4 milliseconds this being a 360hz monitor it makes sense that it's just that much faster and just that much more responsive

At 6.99 this is one of the most expensive 24-inch monitors you're ever going to see and that's because it's got a lot of performance to back it up so make sure that if you're buying this monitor you have the game that really can push 360 frames per second because that's the only way that you're going to get the most out of your money personally i find that both watching movies and playing games on this monitor was really incredible because it's a fast ips normally when you get a really

Really fast display like this almost every 240hz display on the market right now is either a va or a tn panel those panels are really really good for responsiveness but they're not great for picture quality and color can often suffer so when gamers have to make the choice it's do i want a fast monitor or do i want a good looking monitor this one does not compromise you get both in the same package the back of the unit houses an aura rgb sync lighting system that can be synced up

With or rgb software that asus provides you can do a whole bunch of different patterns colors anything from that uh sort of realm and then also uh you can buy with called an orosync rgb projector which will attach to the bottom it doesn't come with the price of the of the unit because it's often about 80 bucks somewhere in there um so that would make this even more expensive than it already is but if you're really all about that rgb life you can have not only the rgb that's already on it

But you can connect another thing that will add even more rgb rgb all the things i think asus says it's rare that you get such a complete package in one monitor these days but this one really does it all the 24 inch screen may seem a little small to some people but for esports gamers it's the perfect size for me i think it's one of the best gaming monitors of 2020 and for that it earns our editor's choice
