10 reviews for ASUS VP28UQG 28″ 4K/UHD 3840×2160 1ms DP HDMI Adaptive Sync/FreeSync Eye Care Monitor

  1. Eric F

    All good if you have settings right.This is a great monitor for the price. I found that I had to have the right settings, then it looked great. I haven’t run any games on it, so I couldn’t rate that. But the 1 ms timing doesn’t hurt.I read a lot of very negative reviews about this monitor and evaluated it with these in mind. Most of them are way off base.Firstly, while some of the view modes are a little “washed-out”, I just set mine to either RGB or Theater mode. Theater mode is the best, in my opinion, because it gives the clearest, brightest picture. And it’s spectacular! I’m comparing it to my older 1900×1080 Samsung 144Hz monitor on the one hand and the OLED display on my iPhone. This monitor is not as bright as my old Samsung, but the colors are better. And this monitor’s color gamut almost seems comparable to my OLED iPhone! It’s really, really nice.Secondly, I reduced the output of only red and blue each, by 5%. This eliminated what was a little bias in the color balance that I didn’t like, but now it’s perfect!Thirdly, the whites are crisp and bright… I do have my brightness turned up to 100%, but a little lower down to 80% is fine too. I have my contrast a bit higher as well. The blacks are deep and true black. There is also subtlety in the display of gray shades.Fourthly, the resolution is awesome! So sharp and crystal clear. I’m doing photo editing on it and the nuances of high res pics come through great.I do not experience any of the display anomalies described in some of the negative reviews. Videos are smooth and spectacular. I did do a high res game benchmark and the display was fine. Looked great. But the video game benchmark result was average, because of the limiting factor of my older nvidia GeForce gtx 1650 card. I would definitely, if you have the money, get a better quality video card to power this monitor.I have been unable to get 10bit color to work, I’m pretty sure because I’m using an HDMI instead of Display Port cable.Also, this monitor is having no problem at all “waking up” when I power on my computer. It does take a little longer than my Samsung did; the screen just comes on as Windows is loading.If you are shopping for a budget computer monitor upgrade, want to save money, don’t really need a better $500 -$700 high res, high refresh rate, I highly recommend this one. 60Hz is just fine for me, looks great compared to my older 144hz monitor. I’m very impressed and pleased with this Asus monitor.The pictures I submitted for this speak for themselves.I can now update my review on this monitor with additional pertinent information. I just connected my monitor using a DisplayPort cable instead of the HDMI and found that graphics performance increased dramatically. My Passmark score for 3D graphics improved right away by more than 20%. I can now enable 10bit color and the display has improved significantly. The display now has even more clarity and brilliance than before when I said it’s spectacular. I just went: “Wow!!!”. Ultra HD videos are absolutely stunning and smooth. I gave this monitor an excellent score before, but now I’m floored! For the price, this monitor is a no-brainer. But do yourself a favor and connect it using a DisplayPort cable.

    Excellent monitor!! Please read if you’re considering or an existing ownerThis is a great monitor, don’t get discouraged by the negative reviews! I encountered a lot of the problems mentioned in the negative reviews but got this thing running finely tuned with no flickering or image issues. ASUS gives you a lot of adjustments and settings on the OSD with the ability to save four profiles but none of the presets are that great out of the box and require some additional tweaking for the best picture. ASUS should have this more fine tuned when it leaves the factory for better plug and play compatibility…take note ASUS! The hardware you connect this to also makes a big difference, here’s how my journey has gone since purchasing:I bought this (April 2020) to be a primary monitor that ran off a slightly older MSI gaming laptop with a nVidia GT 765M 2GB connected using the display port cable. This is where I encountered most of my problems with flickering and instability as the GT 765M was not able to handle the 3840 x 2160 resolution even with the laptop screen turned off. I gained the stability by turning the resolution down to 1920 x 1080 and by using the “nVidia Recommended” settings in the nVidia Control Panel. I found that tinkering with too many of these settings also resulted in flickering and blackouts. Not satisfied with this arrangement I recently decided to sell the MSI laptop and build a new micro atx tower (loved the laptop but always have been more a desktop fan because you have more upgrade options).My new tower has a Intel 10th Gen Core i3 chip with the built-in UHD Graphics 630 which has plenty of power to run this monitor at the full 3840 x 2160 resolution. UHD videos on Netflix and Disney+ look amazing and run smoothly. At the end of the day though it’s really dependent on the video or picture source, this also has a huge impact on the final quality (check out some of the 4K and 8K videos on YouTube while your adjusting and fine tuning the settings on the monitor). Colors look great and “pop” and the off viewing angles are great as well.After being on the two aforementioned systems, here are the monitor settings that I currently use:GameModeBlue Light Filter – Level 0Brightness – 75Contrast – 75Saturation – 55Color Temp – User Mode R-95 G-100 B-100Skin Tone – NaturalSmart View – OFFSharpness – 50 (Already a high res monitor, too much decreases image quality)Trace Free – 60 (Already a high res monitor, too much decreases image quality)VividPixel – 25 (Already a high res monitor, too much decreases image quality)ASCR – ONAdaptive Sync/FreeSync – OFF (Graphics card on order, will update after install)GamePlus – OFFThese are a good starting point for your initial setup (be sure to save your profile in one of the four available) or if your struggling to find a good combination. Obviously your system and personal tastes will vary and additional tweaking may be required.Cons:- The included stand has limited adjustment, it can only tilt the screen. I’m assuming ASUS did this keep the cost low and most gamers will just mount on an arm anyways…I did and love it!- No USB connectors which I personally find convenient (bought a 4 port USB 3.0 hub for my desk)- Brightness could be better but most gamers probably won’t mind, typically playing in darker environments.Hope this helps!(Updated 8/28/2020)

    It’s okay.I mean it’s on the lower cheap end for 4k monitors, it’s got solid Picture quality, the response time is okay, it’s a solid budget monitor hardest thing is tuning the settings.

  4. Amazon Customer

    It’s okayI have another similarly priced Samsung monitor and wanted a dual set up so I decided to try this one.The Samsung blows this out the water with the quality of colors, most notably the depth of blacks. Both monitors offer a crisp picture with this one ever so slightly edging the Samsung out with finer details sometimes.Other than that it has worked flawlessly since purchased which was almost a year ago so no complaints there.It’s definitely a decent monitor considering the price point but there are other options I would explore if or when it comes time to purchase again.

  5. Shaman Strange

    Nice MonitorI use it every day for gaming. I have had no issues with it. I connect with the display port and don’t use HDMI with it.The only time I have difficulties are when I am creating, like with photoshop. the Photoshop app appears too teeny tiny, and I can hardly see the wording or icons.

  6. Robin Boerner

    Changed from 4K to 1080P with no warning after using it for monthsThey say it has HDMI and DP dual use, I used HDMI since I purchased it in May, worked fine. All of a sudden, last week it switched to 1080P only, and support’s only answer is get DP, which my computer does not support. So no help from support at all, and no explanation of why it changed. Just replace HDMI with DP. So they are not very truthful about the dual support.

  7. Takeshi

    Asus Hates Short PeopleI would have rated this as a four stars for the viewing angles, but it’s just so cheap that it deserves all five stars. I have bought two and both arrived without any dead pixels and are in working condition. I would recommend this entry 4k monitor.Pros:-Dirt Cheap 28″ 4k-Great as an auxiliary monitor.-VESA mounting, vertically mounted works great with considerations for viewing angles.Cons:-Horrible viewing angles: Viewing angles are as follow. The angles are approximate.~~Below: 30° angle or more fades or strong black overtones.~~Above: 160° angle or more fades out a bit, but not even close to below viewing. This is reasonable and acceptable.~~Sides: It may also fade out a small bit, but looks great from most of 180° angle.-Larger, thick monitor with wide bezels.

    Stunning 4K monitor!Excellent in every way! 4K and perfect for the gamer or photoshop expert!

  9. Paul R Birsching

    nice, butTurns out there are actually 2 sizes of monitor considered 4k. One is true 4K, and this monitor is the other one, slightly less vertical resolution than true 4k. Be aware that, if you have your statusbar.on the bottom of you screen, it will actually be off screen. Your cursor is a little hard to mouse over the icons when you can’t actually see them. I moved my status bar, but it collides with other mouse over features on the other edges. A little frustrating.

  10. DjSharperimage

    Great monitor. Clear picture. No problems.After reading some of the negative reviews, I was hesitant about ordering this monitor, but I decided to just give it a try, and if I didn’t like it, I would return it.I have been using this monitor for months now, and I have zero problems with it. There is no image ghosting at all when I watch movies. All of the text on the screen are super clear and sharp. And I didn’t have a problem scaling up texts and icons in Windows 10 to 200% so everything isn’t super tiny.I think all the negative reviewers had problems with their graphics cards or PC, or they are just computer illiterate.The little multi-function joystick button on the back of the monitor is very easy to use, and I haven’t had any problems with it. I hardly ever used the joystick button after the initial setup, since the monitor turns on and off with my PC.I use this monitor to watch movies all day everyday, and play videogames. And the picture quality and refresh rate is great.I have played Counter Strike Global Offensive on it, as well as Borderlands 3, and Cyberpunk 2077, and other games on it, and I have had zero problems at all.If you’ve had an ASUS monitor before, it is pretty much the same thing, with the same bezel design, the same material for the screen, except it is a lot larger, and has a higher DPI. I like the single joystick button in the back, which keeps me from having to feel around for the correct button to push.I give this monitor a 10 out of 10. And at 200 dollars it is a great deal. I would recommend this product to friends and family.
