            My friend has the ASUS PG35Q and its an amazing monitor.
            First ...the fan is not noticeable.
            Second... the glow is far less when you sit right in fron of the monitor ( the camera angle from this video is from the side where the glow is much more visible and the overall picture is less colourful)
            The overal image is fanatstic. Shadow of the Tombraider looks amazing in the combination of 1000HDR + Ray Tracing + 144hz 10bit RGB

              3rd. The response times suck which sucks for gaming. For a casual gamer OK but if you game on a more competetive level it is unusable

            Is it advantageous to have a monitor that's so big that you have to swivel your head to view the whole screen? Wouldn't that take away from fps games or any game requiring quick response?

                    9:36 2500 dollars for that?! Nah man. LG OLEDS spoiled me too much man. That glare is absurd. Even if it reaches 2000 fps. If the price was around 1000$ it’d hurt me much less. I know its a gaming monitor. But the price! For 1440p, 35 inches screen. Come on.

                        does it flicker like all PG35VQ's and X35's ? witcher and PUBG are manifesting the worst flickering.

He must be filthy rich from all the work that he's been building throughout the years, and yet his room/desk setup looks so basic and cheap. I bet he spends 80% of its time at work.

                                                  I already have an Asus ROG SWIFT PG348Q. It's IPS but doesn't have HDR. when I build again next year I'm looking to get a second ultrawide. Will I be sacrificing anything by going with this one since it's VA instead of IPS?

                                                    Hey Linus, im geniunly interested in this ultrawide 200hz displays

                                                    I've seen the rog one and the Acer one, in Germany the Acer one is cheaper and has 1024 backlights in comparison to the asuses 512.

                                                    Would you recommend waiting or are there not that Man differences?

The only place that I can find it is on the Asus specifications and support website. There was an issue with scan lines and they might have stopped production or did a recall for it. That’s the only clue that I have been able to find...

                                                                            Enabling the GSYNC and Aura RGB in the OSD menu didnt do the trick.

                                                                              Here is some research on the matter at hand.
