What customers say about "Key Specs"
ASUS ROG Strix XG258Q eSport Gaming Monitor
  • If you're looking at playing games at the ultra-ultra-wide resolution, understand that it's graphically intensive.
  • I like the image quality and high resolution.
  • Gaming is great but I need to update my rig to take advantage of the higher resolution.
  • Overall very good quality product with good resolution.
  • It’s surprising just how much better working is with this size and resolution.
ASUS ROG Swift PG258Q eSport Gaming Monitor
  • 240fps looks amazing. I was a 4k gamer before that and heard all the pros play with high refresh rate.
  • Very good! Really love the bigger resolution, G-Sync, high refresh rate.
  • So how is 3440 x 1440 as a resolution. Amazing is all I can say.
  • I though I would miss the 4K resolution, but after using the monitor continually, I have zero regrets whatsoever.
  • This is truly a great monitor, great build, great size, great resolution.

What customers say about "Features"
ASUS ROG Strix XG258Q eSport Gaming Monitor
  • No issues when unboxing, and VESA mounting was easy.
  • The on-screen refresh rate counter happily goes up and down when gaming, proving that the feature is working.
  • It's FreeSync 2, meaning that it passes some of the feature set needed such as HDR.
  • Well made really good options and features and the perfect size for gaming, designing doing work.
  • When you remove the stands you lose the extra lighting feature.
ASUS ROG Swift PG258Q eSport Gaming Monitor
  • The colors are superb the g sync feature makes a noticeable difference when playing games on high.
  • Gsync is AMAZING. I think that it is the best feature of this monitor
  • Disable backlight if you are using it for work.
  • Games do not work fully and can still have screen tearing, but just switch on V-Sync as well and you are fine.
  • The OSD is good even if the UI takes a bit of getting used to.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS ROG Strix XG258Q eSport Gaming Monitor
  • At any rate, you will need to connect using DisplayPort to make use of as much refresh rate as you can.
  • Don't even bother unpacking the supplied HDMI and/or Mini Display cable, they're utterly rubbish and don't even support the specs.
  • This monitor does come with a display port cable and a HDMI cable.
  • Comes with display and hdmi cable.
  • Only 1 hdmi 2.0 port, stands take up a fair bit of desk space.
ASUS ROG Swift PG258Q eSport Gaming Monitor
  • Pretty much every option available to connect the monitor to a PC.
  • I connected the monitor up to my PC running SLI GTX 1080. Good connection.
  • It came well packaged, with everything you need (even a HDMI and DP leads!).
  • The DP cable that came with the monitor did not want to post an image at all.
  • The monitor does come with both a display port cable and hdmi, however I would recommend using your own as both of these cables are rather short.
