Let’s get straight to the point. Do you want to make the most of your PS5, Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S? You need an HDMI 2.1 monitor. Thanks to this deal, one of the best big screens around is available for its lowest ever price.
When it comes to buying a screen with HDMI 2.1 support, you’re usually stuck between two options: a massive TV or a smaller monitor, both of which have their place but there’s no real middle ground.
Asus responded to this with the 43-inch XG438Q, which gives you that gorgeous big-screen experience you want for your shiny new console or RTX 30-series laptop. Expect 4K resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, HDMI 2.1 ports, HDR, adaptive sync and even a remote control to give you more of a full TV experience.
But don’t forget, it’s a monitor; not a TV. There’s a tonne of productivity features in here, including ultra-low blue light integration and flicker-free technology, an anti-glare screen coating and a comprehensive software suite to tweak your display, which includes picture-by-picture technology to stream from all four ports at the same time!
This makes it the perfect expression of work by day, play by night — an essential addition to any hard-working gamer who wants it all in one panel.
