With the Asus ROG Strix XG49VQ, gaming is a real buzzsaw. The Asus Super Ultrawide HDR gaming monitor impresses with its elegant design and modern technology. It is ergonomically designed to support your health while playing. The functions are versatile and functional. Only in terms of energy efficiency there is still a bit of catching up to do.

Optics & Design

The Asus 49 inch screen with an aspect ratio of 32:9 can easily replace two 27 inch screens. It has a 1800R curvature, which enables an excellent gaming experience and looks extremely attractive. Like its base, it is kept in an appealing black and therefore blends harmoniously into almost every room ambiance. In addition, it has a VA panel that provides a wide range of possible applications. The monitor does completely without a frame in the middle. On the one hand, this ensures the most authentic gaming experience possible and, on the other hand, gives the screen a stylish appearance.

Tech Specs & Connections

There are many technologies built into this screen that are designed to provide a high quality and professional gaming experience. HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology, for example, influences the colour reproduction of the monitor and ensures 90% colour space coverage. On the other hand, a FreeSync 2 technology is available. This synchronisation process aims to virtually eliminate interference and delays in image reproduction. The high refresh rate of 144 Hz is very useful in this context.

The monitor is equipped with a variety of connectivityn. This means that it offers a wide range of options and can be connected to a wide variety of devices. In addition to computers and laptops, these include game consoles. In addition to two HDMI connectivityn, there are also two USB connectivity. The so-called „Smart Cable Management“ helps you to use the required cables neatly and without impairing the gaming experience.

Ergonomics & energy consumption

The Asus Super Wide Monitor ROG Strix wants to be there just for you. That’s why the monitor offers the possibility to adapt it to your personal needs. This way you can achieve a healthy sitting posture while playing and do your neck, spine and tendons a favour, among other things. The monitor is height adjustable in the range of 0-120 mm. You can also rotate it at an angle of +16° to -16°. In addition, you can make individual adjustments in an angle of inclination from +20° to -5°.

However, please note that the screen is a small buzzer. It belongs to the energy efficiency class C and thus consumes significantly more power than other models. That’s why you should only ever leave the screen running when you actually need it. Otherwise, you’ll end up with a pretty high electricity bill.
