My Honest ASUS TUF Gaming VG259QM Monitor Review
My brother needed a new monitor and chose this one. He desired a 27-inch display since his previous monitors were usually too tiny (22 inch or smaller). Due to Pixel Per Inch (PPI) issues, we deliberated between the smaller version of this monitor and the 1440p version. We are aware of some people’s worries regarding the low PPI of 1080p resolution on a 27″ monitor, but I believe it comes down to personal opinion. My brother was able to notice the difference between the two resolutions since I have a 1440p 27″ display, and he claims he has no desire to move to a 1440p monitor after viewing the difference.
The only major difference we noticed between a 27″ 1080p and a 27″ 1440p monitor is with text (when browsing the web, you can notice the lower PPI), but it’s not at all bad, in fact things are easier to read on his monitor because text appears larger, he can lean back in his chair and still read everything. Because of the greater PPI, text on a 1440p panel seems crisper, but it also appears smaller. Our parents have impaired eyesight and use glasses; they like his monitor since they can see text much more easily on it than on mine; so, if you have visual concerns, ASUS TUF Gaming VG259QM monitor may be a good alternative.
A 1440p monitor also offers somewhat more screen real estate than a 1080p monitor. If you perform a lot of multitasking and have a lot of windows open, the greater screen real estate of a 1440p monitor is beneficial. Because my brother mostly watches Netflix, plays games, and surfs the web, more screen real estate was not a problem; 1080p suffices for his purposes.
We also had to strike a balance between resolution and computing performance. He owns a GeForce 1070 but cannot afford a new graphics card capable of handling 1440p resolution at high frame rates. Games run pretty well at 1080p, and they look beautiful too; if he purchased the 1440p version of this monitor, his graphics card would struggle to reach high frame rates in recent games, and he would miss out on the performance that this display is capable of.
We spent about half an hour fiddling with all the various settings… saturation, blue levels, contrast, etc… trying to obtain the best appearance we could, then we decided to test the HDR option in Windows 10 and WOW what a difference, everything looked beautiful, so we kept the HDR setting on. My brother thought the display on ASUS TUF Gaming VG259QM was too bright, so he reduced the HDR brightness level in Windows to 27 (out of 100) to make it easier on his eyes. He was coming from a low-cost TN panel and couldn’t believe the difference an IPS panel could make; he stated he spotted details in his games he had never seen before, and the colors were much more brilliant, a significant increase.
After using it for a few days, he said that he intends to retain it and will not replace it for the smaller or 1440p versions. The reduced PPI that some people complain about is unimportant to him. He is quite pleased with it and has no problems.
