    Hey comments,
    What is the best display port cable to buy for a monitor? Obviously the amazon one isn't the best, just wondering thanks!

  • Theboywithguns
    Theboywithguns Day ago

    Can you give me your old monitor if you not using it?

  • Valcor
    Valcor Day ago

    Haha so monitor is useless over 144hz wow how fucking awesome .
    You pay all this money for a 200hZ display and can't use it . I don't get why anyone supports Asus monitors anymore there overpriced.

  • Valcor
    Valcor Day ago

    8 bit colour no HDR unless you run it at 120hz haha POGCHAMP.
    Holt shit anyone who buys this monitor is legit retarded

  • Valcor
    Valcor Day ago

    So NO HDR stuck at 8bit colour and forced to use 120 fps .

    Haha what a terrific monitor I'm so jealous of all the people wasting 3kusd...

    I'll be over here running the same specs with a $700 ultrawide thank you .

  • Valcor
    Valcor Day ago

    That an insane price for a 120hz 1440p ultrawide.
    Where are they getting the extra price from? Oh I guess the false advertisement of the monitor being 200hZ.

  • Valcor
    Valcor Day ago

    6:20 I'm crying in tears spends $2500 in 200hZ ultrawide 1440p monitor . Ans it's fucking locked at 120hz/fps haha how pethetic .
    We need someone to do a edit with the Mexican guy reacting and laughing to it being locked at 120hz

  • threatprince

    • Valcor
      Valcor Day ago

      Good choice since you can't even use the 200 fps option on this anyway without turning it into a $500 budget monitor with 8 bit colour and no hdr.

  • Mpamphs Kangourosaurous

    SO many problems for this price , FALD is worthless and VA panel at 10 bit is also not even close to IPS. So I guess IPS at 40% of the price is better.

    The next thing you should do for your personal rig is work on cable management. It was so distracting that pay attention to anything you were saying. Put some of those LTT cable ties to good use.

  • Grant Hampson
    Grant Hampson 8 days ago

    ASUS needs to get rid of the RGB log and go to something more practical like an RGB LED strip around the edge to light up the space behind the monitor. I would appreciate that alot more.

  • skybuck2000

    What is this thing that has to be turned off to get rid of that mouse halo and how does turning it off effect image quality, that's not entirely clear...

    • George Wetterau
      George Wetterau 8 days ago

      in game it can not be noticed the slightest bit. outside the game images with darker backgrounds you will experience the halo. That's what i have noticed in all the review videos out and what they have been saying. Its also something you will have to play with lighting settings with to "FIX" it. Personally my setup i only play games on so that does not bother me, as long as its not in game halo.
