The Asus ROG Strix XG32VQ gaming monitor combines a 32-inch curved screen, a zippy 144Hz refresh rate, FreeSync compatibility, and a raft of gaming features to nab our Editors' Choice.
It’s not a true ultrawide, but this is a splendid monitor for competitive gaming
The ASUS ROG Strix XG32V is a gaming monitor that comes with ROG's finest features on a 31.5-inch 1440p VA panel. Great colors, great ergonomics, but I still don't understand why there's an external power supply.
The Asus XG32VQ is an excellent gaming monitor all throughout thanks to its impressive specs and a very capable VA screen. The combination of a high-contrast panel and Quantum Dot technology provides an exciting and engrossing visual experience especially when playing AAA titles. The monitor’s physical features are well-loved by reviewers and the enthusiast communities, although most would still prefer subdued or subtle designs.
The Asus ROG Strix XG32VQ is slightly dearer than its AOC rival, yet it’s not as bright, and doesn’t have the same level of colour accuracy either. For gamers, though, the more responsive panel and low input lag will more than make up for those shortcomings. While the RGB lighting doesn’t add much, the Strix XG32VQ is overall the best large-sized gaming monitor on the market.
With its premium design and something that certain users would refer to as the ‘ROG tax’, you can expect it to demand a slight premium in its price compared to the likes of the AOC AG322QCX. Then again, availability out of the gate seems to be much more solid with this one, so acquiring the beast should be easier.
The XG32V absolutely dominates your view. 32 inches of curved loveliness. It fills your vision in a manner that, until now, you had to invest in multiple screens to enjoy. We're used to 24 and 27 inch monitors here at OC3D, neither of which are exactly small, but 32 inches is a ridiculous amount of real estate to sit 18 inches away from.
ASUS has not left any stone unturned in the features department for the XG32VQ. The superior refresh rate and FreeSync mode improve the graphical display performance a lot, despite less than stellar PPI numbers. The ROG XG32VQ provides an excellent balance of resolution with other features like refresh rate, screen size, and other advanced specs.
A curved gaming monitor that is disguised as an art piece and comes with 144Hz of refresh rate, 4ms of response time and FreeSync enabled – a win for Team Red.

The range in 32-inch QHD is large and as far as we're concerned that's great, because not only is this a very attractive combination of size and resolution, there are also no real oldtimers in this extensive test field. Of course, all value for money,...
There is a type of monitor that does not cost much more than a standard model but does offer much more work space. Experts know about it, but because they don't have a very recognisable name, they are often missed by those looking for a new, affordable...
The Asus ROG Strix XG32VQ offers a panel with interesting properties in an exuberant housing. Tastes vary, and not everyone will be able to appreciate the design, but we can certainly imagine that a large part of the target group easily fall for this....
We like the XG32V; it offers a large, bright screen with excellent gaming performance, cool styling, and solid build quality for a reasonable price. But we missed a true sRGB color and 2.2 gamma option for more accurate with most of today’s video and gaming content. Still, it’s an impressive use of VA technology, with 3000:1 contrast and image quality superior to any IPS or TN monitor. Thanks to a 144Hz refresh rate and FreeSync, gaming is a pleasure. If you don’t mind the extra color, it makes for a compelling choice.
