ASUS MG28UQ: IPS 4K Ultra HD FreeSync Gaming Monitor


ASUS has released a new monitor that they first revealed at CES 2016. We are talking about the ASUS MG28UQ – the bigger version of the MG24UQ, which we have already discussed. This new particular gaming monitor, which the company has called it, features an incredible 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution on a 28-inch display. This results in stunning photo-realistic visuals in gameplay when the quality is at the very best as well.

Interestingly, the smaller MG24UQ features an IPS panel, but the ASUS MG28UQ has a TN panel. The TN panel will provide a bad color quality and viewing angles, but will give you a faster response time – 1ms in fact for this gaming monitor. AMD FreeSync is also supported with a FreeSync range of 40Hz-60Hz. Both the 24-inch version and this one supports VESA Adaptive-Sync.

Other game enhancements are the ASUS GameVisual technology for optimized gaming visuals, ASUS Ultra-Low Blue Light for reducing eye strain, Flicker-free mode, ASUS GamePlus to provide tactical assistance at your command. So with this 28-inch gaming monitor, you can enjoy ultra HD graphics at a maximum of 60Hz on a TN display with only 1ms response time. This is four times as many pixels as a 1080p (FHD/Full HD) monitor, so enjoy your stunning graphics with this incredible 4K monitor, both in games and when watching movies/browsing the internet.
We think 28-inches is a very suitable size for a 4K resolution, meaning that this monitor perfectly meets our expectation of a good 4K display.

On the back side you will see a DisplayPort 1.2 connector, a HDMI 2.0 port, two HDMI 1.4a ports and two USB 3.0 ports for quickly charging your mobile phone. You can also use the two USB 3.0 ports to connect your mouse and keyboard.

The price tag of the ASUS MG28UQ is $549.99 in the U.S and it is already being sold online and in the stores.
