ASUS PQ321Q UHD Monitor Review
By Chris Heinonen on
After writing about UHD and 4K for a while now, I finally had the chance to live with an ultra high-resolution display for a while, the ASUS PQ321Q desktop monitor. Coming in at 32″ with 3840×2160 resolution, the ASUS doesn’t look much different from the 30″ desktop LCDs I have been reviewing recently. Until you turn it on, and then it is a totally different level.
With resolution scaling enabled in Windows, the ASUS PQ321Q is amazingly sharp. Like going from your original iPhone to a retina screen model, text and numbers are crisp and easy to read. Working on complex documents and spreadsheets is easier and more enjoyable with the better text. Editing and viewing photos is better with the incredibly high-resolution. The experience of using the display is one that is totally enjoyable.
As we’ve seen from earlier articles, screens of this resolution will show a big benefit from a normal distance, and I can tell you that is the case. The ASUS isn’t perfect, but it’s amazing, and it’s the most incredible monitor I’ve had on my desk to this point. You can find out everything else you need to know over at AnandTech today, but I really hope ASUS lets me keep it around for a while.
