  • Extremely fast for a 360Hz monitor
  • Excellent color accuracy and contrast
  • Excellent input-lag performance
  • Not for everyone


Asus ROG Swift PG259QNR is an excellent gaming monitor with exceptional motion handling. It's the world's first 360Hz gaming monitor. The monitor's sleek design, gamer-friendly ergonomics, record-setting input-lag results, and exceptional color accuracy place it above most gaming monitors.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.



Sentiment Score[*] 80%
Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
Asus ROG gaming monitor has an ultraquick 360Hz, 1080p display. DisplayPort 1.4a offers just enough bandwidth to push 1080p over to the monitor at 360Hz. Light bleed and IPS glow is minimal on our sample, and much better than on curved ultrawide monitors.

  • Ultraquick 360Hz, 1080p display
  • Extremely fast CPU performance
  • Excellent gaming performance
  • Not for competitive gamers


Sentiment Score[*] 89%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Swift 360Hz is based on so-called Fast IPS (FIPS) panel technology. FIPS technology uses thinned-out elements and optimized voltage patterns to deliver IPS displays that push the limits of refresh rates, response times, and input lag. The onscreen display (OSD) menu is incredibly deep and fully-featured.

  • Excellent color accuracy

Reviewers from Rtings have found the following[***]:
ASUS ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN is an excellent gaming monitor with exceptional motion handling. It has good ergonomics and wide viewing angles, making it a great option for co-op gaming and sharing content. Sadly, it can't deliver a good HDR experience, as it lacks local dimming, a wide color gamut, and doesn't get bright enough to make highlights stand out.

  • Excellent ergonomics and wide viewing angles
  • Excellent motion handling
  • Good color accuracy
  • Can't display wide color gamut
  • Low contrast ratio


Sentiment Score[*] 86%
Reviewers from Tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The Asus ROG Swift PG259QN runs at 360 frames per second. It includes G-Sync, which operates over the full range from 1-360 Hz. HDR locks out most image controls, but you can still adjust contrast and color temp. It's an edge array, so no one's expecting it to be the best HDR monitor.

  • 360 Hz refresh rate
  • Supports G-Sync and FreeSync
  • Easy to install
  • Easy-to-use OSD
  • Not compatible with AMD FreeSync
