The ASUS ROG SWIFT PG248Q really is full of bells and whistles, and is also capable of great colour accuracy when calibrated properly. The lack of brightness uniformity is a bit of a concern, but the extremely high refresh rate and support for NVIDIA G-Sync will be a real boon when playing games where as many non-blurry frames per second as possible are a competitive advantage, such as FPS, racing or sports.
The GameVisual presets will be popular for those who don’t want to spend time messing around with settings, but there are plenty of configuration options available when you do delve into the OSD, enough to set up very good colour accuracy, up there with an IPS panel, although the actual gamut visible is quite a bit less.
The big issue with the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG248Q is the price. For a 24in display, £400 is a lot to pay, when 4K screens are available for less. This is a great screen for e-sports, despite the cost and brightness uniformity issue. But you will have to be very serious about your gaming to make it worth the money.

Kitguru Says: The ASUS ROG SWIFT PG248Q boasts a humungous 180Hz refresh when overclocked and lots of great features for gamers, but it is one of the most expensive 24in Full HD panels on the market.
