ASUS ROG PG32UQ Monitor Review (4K/144Hz)

Rating: 8.0.

The ASUS ROG PG32UQX was one of the best monitors we reviewed in 2021. It wowed us with its sensational HDR performance, thanks to the use of over 1100 mini-LED zones. Such technology does not come cheap however, and the PG32UQX still retails for over £3200 today, making it viable for only the richest of enthusiasts. So what if you want something similar, but just can't afford to drop several thousand pounds? That's where the PG32UQ (non-X) comes in.

Offering the same 4K 144Hz IPS panel, but ditching the mini-LED zones in favour of a more basic edge-lit setup, the ASUS ROG PG32UQ is much more competitively priced at £849 here in the UK. Granted, it is by no means cheap, but its pricing puts it in line with other competitors offering the same resolution and refresh rate.

It still boasts HDR600 certification however, claimed 98% DCI-P3 coverage and official G-Sync Compatible certification, making it very appealing on paper. Let's find out what it is like to use in the real world.
