Some of the best gaming displays on the market are still the older 120Hz refresh rate panels, but the new 240Hz display from ASUS is the leader of the pack.

We also have NVIDIA's G-Sync technology on offer with the ASUS ROG Swift PG258Q but don't forget the inclusion of Ultra Low Motion Blur (ULMB) technology, which improves the image quality while maintaining the fluidness of 240FPS.

ASUS have used a 1ms panel, which eliminates virtually every speck of motion blur, so for super-fast twitch shooters and fast-moving games like Rocket League, that 1ms @ 240Hz becomes incredibly smooth.

There are some unique features that ASUS include such as GamePlus Technology that provides hotkeys for in-game enhancements like a crosshair overlay, onscreen timer, FPS counter, or display alignment function.

The navigation joystick and hotkeys on the ROG Swift PG258Q are one of the highlights of the attention to detail ASUS put into their flagship gaming displays, with a 5-way OSD Navigation Joystick making the entire OSD process super intuitive.

 

The buttons below it are easy to get used to, with Exit, GamePlus Hotkey, GameVisual Hotkey, and the Power button easy to access.

There's an awesome little cable management hole in the stand itself, making the monitor look nice and clean on your desk.
