Product Overview

Asus ROG Strix XG259CM is a mainstream 25-inch FHD gaming monitor in Asus's 2021 lineup. It is powered by a basic 8-bit IPS panel with 240Hz max refresh rate.
Notably, this monitor supports HDR up to HDR10, DisplayHDR 400. The included stand comes with tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustments that make for a more ergonomic viewing experience. With a fast 1 ms response time, this display is a good gaming option. Additionally, this monitor can get quite contrasty.
Further, the 8-bit panel is rather limiting in terms of color reproduction.
