The Asus VG28UQL1A is an upper midrange price monitor with a large, 28-inch screen and a high 4K resolution, which makes it ideal for immersive media consumption and detailed productivity tasks. The IPS panel ensures good color accuracy and wide viewing angles, suitable for digital photo editing. It has a fair refresh rate that is suitable for casual gaming, and the stand is adjustable for ergonomic comfort. While it covers a good range of colors, its HDR performance is limited, so it is not the best choice for HDR gaming or video editing. It comes with multiple connectivity options including HDMI 2.1, making it future-proof for newer gaming consoles and PCs. Overall, it's a versatile monitor that balances gaming, productivity, and media consumption, but with some limitations in high-end gaming and HDR content. Give Feedback

Matthew Smith | March 2022
"The Asus TUF Gaming VG28UQL1A is, in many ways, a great 4K gaming monitor. It has a sharp, accurate image with good contrast and excellent motion clarity. Luminance uniformity is its only weakness. The monitor’s $799 MSRP is relatively affordable for a 4K HDMI 2.1 monitor, as well."
