Product Overview

Asus TUF Gaming VG258QM is a mainstream 25-inch FHD gaming monitor in Asus's 2020 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit TN panel that delivers up to 280Hz refresh rate.
Notably, this monitor supports HDR up to DisplayHDR 400. The included stand comes with tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustments that make for a more ergonomic viewing experience. With a fast 0.5 ms response time, this display is a good gaming option. Additionally, this monitor can get quite contrasty. It also comes with build-in speakers that make media consumption in a pinch an effortless experience.
Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.

Sentiment Score 40%
Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
ASUS VG258QM is a good monitor for mixed usage. It performs best in bright lighting conditions thanks to its high peak brightness and great reflection handling. It's not as well-suited to watching movies or gaming in the dark because of its low contrast ratio. The high refresh rate, fast response time, and low input lag are excellent for gaming.
