But it’s not just gamers who deserve their money with the ASUS PG32UQ. According to the manufacturer, the sRGB color space should be covered by 160%.

ASUS specifies 98% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space.

optics and mechanics

Visually, the ASUS PG32UQ Monitor matches the current trend of frameless design and black casing. When it comes to the design of the front of the screen, there is not much leeway in this regard, because the narrow bezel has not only visual advantages, but also a practical use, for example in multi-screen operation.

On the other hand, the back of the case offers more design freedom, with the sleek and sporty ASUS PG32UQ design. Different surface structures ensure versatility. The massive ROG logo that’s highly reflective shows which model series the display belongs to. With the red color, ASUS is economical with this device. In terms of color, only the 5-way joystick and the print on the base stand out from the casing’s uniform black.

Due to the bezel-less design, almost the entire front of the screen is made up of the screen surface. Only at the bottom edge of the screen, the front of the chassis has a bezel height of approximately 1.8 cm. The ROG logo is raised in the center and has a reflective surface. The same ROG logo still includes the lettering on the back of the stand, here in red.

ASUS kept the distinctive three-legged base with the PG32UQ monitor, but neglected the color accents and RGB lighting. This change has the advantage that the screen as a whole has a more professional look, since no reviews were made. The stand is not pre-assembled, but assembly can be done quickly and easily without the use of tools using the wing screws on the underside of the stand.

As with all ASUS gaming monitors, the PG32UQ is also equipped with Aura Sync lighting. It is located on the case back and is executed on this model in the form of a large ROG logo. The inverted Republic of Gamers logo doesn’t immediately indicate that this is a lit item. “Aura Sync” and “Aura RGB” options are available in the monitor’s OSD menu. The latter provides different lighting modes and colors, while only “Aura Sync” can be activated. Then the ASUS PG32UQ monitor synchronizes the brightness with other Aura-compatible devices.
