ASUS TUF Gaming VG28U 4K IPS Monitor Review


Monitors are one of the most difficult things to buy just from specifications alone. Whilst many companies provide accurate data for most of their hardware, when it comes to monitors they use a swathe of obfuscation. Whether it's using grey-to-grey for the response times, or measuring peak brightness with everything turned up to 11 in an unrealistic style. Or even claiming that it supports a particular refresh rate, on the understanding that everything is overclocked and you'll have ghosting out of the wazoo.

Because of this it's very tempting, especially if you've ever brought a monitor that had horrible ghosting and washed out colours, to plonk down the largest amount of money you can afford, and hope that the more expensive panels give the best picture, or perhaps the picture with the fewest flaws.

You don't have to spend a fortune though, and sometimes you can spend a medium amount of money on a product which ticks so many boxes we wonder what the catch is. One such monitor is today's offering, the ASUS TUF Gaming VG28U. You get 4K, 144Hz, HDR400, GSYNC, FreeSync and a good stand for a not inconsiderable outlay, but nothing like the money asked for the flagship monitors on the market. At this point any price below £1000 seems like a bargain. Does the picture live up to the specifications?

These next gen 4k panels are much the same as the 1440p panels of a year or so ago. While HDR400 might sound low in comparison to the higher end panels i can say from my own experience that it still offers good hdr brightness levels.

Elden ring sure looks nice with HDR on and toned down brightness as do others like doom eternal the glow is what i notice in the deeper blacks most when playing.

my 1440p was £350 but the stand mine has is really nice something often a 2nd thought but 4k 144hz if it's say around £550 is not a bad buy at all, i'd find it hard to spend more than that on a monitor myself, but with monitors it's a mine field more than other PC components.Quote
