What customers say about "Key Specs"
ASUS VP28UQG 28-inch 4K UHD FreeSync Gaming Monitor
  • I got this for my PS4 Pro down sized from a 43” 4K HDR tv, it was too big for my office. The picture is amazing. Loads of customisable options.
  • Having used this monitor for about a week, and used it for multiple things (gaming, watching videos etc.), this monitor has really impressed me. The quality is fantastic at 4K, and you can run games at lower resolutions and have no problems.
  • Great size & resolution for a desktop screen.
  • There are better ones out there but for the value its an incredible monitor. Picture is decent and its just the right size.
  • Good vaule for money right size easy to use clear picture just beautiful
ASUS MG28UQ 28-Inch 4K Monitor
  • I picked it up for my new Xbox X. I am loving it. Perfect for 4K gaming off a console. If you are looking for a top tier monitor for pc you would want to look around. But if you are wanting a great monitor for 4K gaming console, then you can’t go wrong with this one.
  • I have had a 4K monitor before and I can honestly say this blew me away. Absolutely gorgeous, super dark blacks, great color, nice adjustable stand well built, this made playing FPS like pubg/CS:GO feel like I’m cheating haha...
  • Amazing monitor. Great 4K display using my GTX 1070. Perfect size for a hutch or a desk that doesn't have a lot of room.
  • Got this as kind of an entry level gaming monitor, I am blown away by it. 4k at 60 FPS via hdmi 2.0 and DP is outstanding! I use this with the PS4 Pro and it works very well!
  • The highest setting (4k) looks so amazing when you have a really large picture. So much detail and vivid colors. I didn't realize pictures could look that good. In lower resolutions, it's fine too. But, different aspect ratios, as you would expect.

What customers say about "Display"
ASUS VP28UQG 28-inch 4K UHD FreeSync Gaming Monitor
  • It really is a great item that is big enough for gaming and takes advantages of the Xbox one x's freesync, 10bit color, and 4k.
  • Was expecting something worse! Now when I play in Full HD tv are nothing compare with the brightness and saturation of this monitor, amazing colors
  • Love the monitor, color is great and haven't noticed any flickering while playing my games (fps games)
  • First of all, you need the monitor to be eye level, this is because TN panels dont have the best viewing angles
  • But the viewing angle is irrelevant it is virtually impossible to get a match for color, brightness and contrast with other monitors, it is way out of line. I have no idea how anyone can be happy with this monitor.
ASUS MG28UQ 28-Inch 4K Monitor
  • Fast response time, BEAUTIFUL graphics, and a real treat to use!
  • This is probably one of the very few 1ms response time 4K monitor with HDCP available.
  • The view angle is also incredibly wide, with true color at extreme angles.
  • The color accuracy is beautiful and so is the playback contrast. For gaming I've used it mostly with Overwatch. This monitor is so amazing for what I do that I'm buying a second one!
  • I just hate TN panels. The color is so bad compared to IPS, and the viewing angle is horrific. But TN's usually have amazing response time and high refresh rates.
  • TN panel washed out colors. Color and Gamma shifts with the bad viewing angles
  • The TN panel leaves some wanting when it comes to contrast and color, unfortunately. Even after calibration I definitely saw the difference next to my IPS panel.

What customers say about "Features"
ASUS VP28UQG 28-inch 4K UHD FreeSync Gaming Monitor
  • ALSO another good thing is it automatically turns itself on, and to the correct input when you turn on a device connected to it.
  • Picture is very good, bright, powerful, fast, and can be adjusted. Nice features like blue light filters and modes etc.
  • Solidly built, it has enough features to make it very attractive for the price.
  • Picture quality is great. It does have sound, but that is not a feature I would recommend using.
  • This Monitor even has ok sound for a monitor. It's got a reasonable price and the monitor has many features on it, including game Plus.
ASUS MG28UQ 28-Inch 4K Monitor
  • The base is big and bulky; so I order a vesa mount. Mounting to the vesa mount was easy and looks great now.
  • The 90 degree tilt feature was actually a surprise. Turned it by accident, watching my display react accordingly!
  • Everything is good out of the box and it has built in speakers. I didn't buy it for the speakers so it's quite alright.
  • Speakers are adequate and that's all. Thin and tinny sounding.
  • The only reason for the missing star is the speakers are minimal and for such a huge, beautiful screen it seems demeaning to have such weak speakers. Yet, the screen is a SUPER screen.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS VP28UQG 28-inch 4K UHD FreeSync Gaming Monitor
  • The screen/video quality is excellent. The audio is not so well supported. If you are connecting, eg A Sky monitor, you cannot use the audio over DP or HDMI.
  • Screen is very bright so need to turn down and the only criticism I have is that the connection sockets are awkward to get too.
  • This is an excellent monitor. Good colour saturation, nice refresh rate and good connectivity.
  • I bought this and am sending it back. Connected to my iMac via a usb-c to hdmi lead, when I put the mac to sleep, this monitor would come on and say 'No signal.'
  • The ips glow is terrible when connected to consoles its that noticeable i have to look for a replacement
ASUS MG28UQ 28-Inch 4K Monitor
  • It comes with both an HDMI and a Display Port cable which is really convenient.
  • Comes with one of each type of cable: mDP-DP, HDMI v1.4, and USB 3.0.
  • Usb ports on the back are nice.
  • USB ports for my mouse and keyboard are nice for reducing the cable rat's nest behind my desk.
