What customers say about "Features"
ASUS VG258Q Gaming Monitor
  • The monitor also features some inbuilt settings , can get a cross hair to appear on the screen.
  • Overall it's a good mid range gaming monitor with great features like the cross hair and n-vidia gysnc built in.
  • Joystick for menu is a cool feature, beats fiddling around with unmarked buttons.
  • With NVidia adding this to their shortlist of GSync compatible monitors I would expect the feature to work well, and it does.
  • It's very sturdy and the little feature at the back for cable management is great.
ASUS VG258QR Esports Gaming Monitor

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS VG258Q Gaming Monitor
  • All you need to connect a PS4 is to stick in a HDMI from the console to the monitor.
  • The monitor has a jack available to connect your own speakers or headphones.
  • For Xbox gamers the monitor has Freesync compatible with the Xbox One console. Easy connect.
  • I also do not like that the HDMI ports are on the bottom as it is inconvenient when connecting and unconnecting systems.
  • Only down sides being a lack on connectivity and if you switch from one connection to another.
ASUS VG258QR Esports Gaming Monitor
  • Really helps, clear, fast connections.
  • The fact that it connects with a DVI cable means that you can use another monitor.
  • I'm using the DVI connection but it also has HDMI if you want to use that or connect an HDMI peripheral.
  • Setup was a breeze but this monitor does not have a VGA port so I would not recommend it for an older graphics card.
  • It came with a displayport but the ps4 pro doesn't have the connection. So we used an HDMI adapter.
