Review

  • I really wanted to like this monitor, as it received decent reviews and should be a great value for 1440p gaming.(+): Easy to setup, thin bezel, one of the best monitor stands I’ve ever used (especially for being included with the monitor), allows for multiple viewing angles/configurations, matte screen truly doesn’t show nearly as many reflections as other matte monitors, nice cable routing system which still looks clean, even with multiple cables connected. ASUS customer service is also top knotch, should you encounter any problems down the road.(-): I bought 2 of these monitors during a 6 month period and both had issues out of the box. First one had significant backlight bleed that developed progressively over time. I had it replaced by ASUS for free under their warranty. That replacement monitor is now starting to do the same thing. Very unforunate. 2nd monitor came with a scratch on the display, which was more of a gouge, as it would show as a white line. It also had some scratches on the stand as well. Poor quality control, as these issues should’ve been found before the “protective films” were placed on the monitor.
  • I received this today. I used it for about 3 hours then submitted for a return. I’ve used the Samsung CHG90 and it is far superior. The build quality of the Asus is terrible. The entire casing is made of cheap plastic. The bezel surrounding the screen is not uniform and feels wavy… Mine actually has a small area about 2-3 inches wide on the top left where the bezel is actually lifted up. There are multiple backlight bleeds as well. To top it off the screen flickers randomly. No its not my graphics cards since I can’t reproduce it using other monitors. Disappointing because I have other asus monitors and at least 5-6 asus motherboards. I’m typing this using my zenith extreme so I am a fan of the brand. But I would avoid this monitor.
  • I got this to replace my almost 3 year old surround setup (3xRog Swift 2560x1440p in 7680x1440p surround) for the following reasons:1. Bezels; they were starting to drive me nuts.2. Performance requirements for 7680x1440p with worse and worse SLI support for games that need it to run well at higher resolutions (for example Watchdogs 1, Hitman 2016, and Assasin’s Creed: Origins). Even when SLI works; 2x980Tis and 2x1080Tis had a rough time of it.3. Colors; Rog Swift TN version colors are very washed out.4. Desk real estate; 3×27″ monitors take up a lot of space.5. Wasted monitor space in games, as you cannot see 70ish inches of screen when sitting at a desk.My concerns going in to buy the Asus Strix 35″ were:1. Not big enough for office work.(plenty of screen for working with 2 documents side by side as I discovered; though not 3)2. Monitor defects (mine was flawless).One thing that was not a concern in my consideration; even as an Nvidia GPU user, was Gsync. Years of Gsync monitors leave me feeling it is more of a gimmick than anything.The monitor is a great piece of engineering with deep colors, 100Hz refresh out of the box (via DP cable; not included), and solid build material (all at a much cheaper price than it’s gsync IPS predecessor). I am including some benchmarks to give an idea of performance @3440x1440p; I am using the following hardware:i7 5930K@4.5Ghz/32GB 2666Mhz DDR4 RAM/1080Ti STRIXx2 in SLI/ROG RAIDR 240GB PCIE SSD (OS)/OCZ VECTOR 120GB SSDsx2/Corsair Force LX 256GB SSD/WD BLUE 500GB SSD/WD Velociraptor 10,000 RPM 1TB HDDsx2/EVGA 1300WG2/NZXT KRAKEN X61 AIO.
  • If you’re in the market for a 21:9 wide screen with Freesync, you can’t beat this monitor. Mine arrived with no dead pixels and looks great. For work or play, this monitor is great. I typically work with 2-3 programs open, and there is plenty of real estate to accommodate the windows side-by-side. This really beats 2 or 3 monitors for work because you lose a lot of space by not being able to place an open window in the middle of two screens. The curve is very nice, not too much or too little. The height/swivel adjustments are very smooth and easy. For gaming? Forget about it. If you have a card that can push all the pixels, this monitor is fantastic.Now for the con: the cable management hole has two pieces of plastic that meet at a point. Well, that point is not smooth at all, and when I pull my keyboard closer to me or push it back, it catches my braided keyboard cable that I have running through it. If ASUS could fix this simple design/manufacturing flaw, I wouldn’t have any complaints.
  • Received a defective monitor. Displayed nothing but a black screen. I understood that this could sometimes happen, but what pissed me off the most is the terrible customer service when trying to get it replaced. 2weeks and counting after sending my defective monitor back and still no update on when I’m getting my replacement.
