from completed build My ROG Gaming PC (2019)
For < £600 it's a fantastic monitor. 3440 x 1440 / 21:9 is the size that gives you more view area in games, also in movies you don't have top and bottom black areas - I definitely prefer watching movies on this monitor rather than on 50" 16:9 TV.
Colours may feel a bit off at times, and indeed when I opened calibration in Windows the greens had to be reduced. If money were no object I would have bought the new PG35VQ for £2600, but under £1000 this one seems to be the best for casual gaming and movies.
Also the cable cover on the back is difficult to detach - be careful with it. ASUS must have done a better job - it just feels cheep that they didn't provide a way to release the clip without nearly breaking it (and I actually broke one clip).
