Asus PA329Q $1,250
RECOMMENDING a display is tricky because there are so many subjective variables. What may be perfect for one may not work for you. Gamers, for instance, want to prioritize the high refresh rates and low latency of a TN panel over IPS’s color accuracy and viewing angles, while video editors may prefer the higher contrast ratios of VA panels.
Most of us want the best of all worlds—which tends to mean IPS panels, although newer tech is blurring these lines. Add in screen sizes, native resolutions, FreeSync/ G-Sync, high dynamic ranges (HDR), and more, and it’s clear that recommending a screen is difficult. We’re still searching for the “perfect” panel at a price we’re comfortable with—the Asus PA329Q is great, but at $1,250, it’s not for everyone.
