My Honest ASUS TUF Gaming VG289Q1A Review
For just $350, it’s a steal. has decent image quality so I haven’t attempted gaming yet. The built-in speakers are 6/10 but I have a headset so that’s not a problem. I’ll attempt the gaming stage in a later update. oh asus for the hdr bump it up so far asus I love only display that supports 38502160 no dead pixels but asus will yall render a curved hdr ips 38502160 built in 7.1 surround sound speakers 30.5inch screen oled I’m curious to know what you do next because I’m bankrupt and won’t be able to afford much else for a few months. The display is pretty cool.
