このモニターを使いこなせる?360Hzのゲーミングモニター「ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN」をレビュー!

ASUS Japan recently announced the " ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN ( PG259QN)," a gaming monitor for professional e-sports players that boasts the world's fastest refresh rate of 360Hz.
ASUS, which previously set the record for the world's fastest refresh rate of 280Hz with the " TUF Gaming VG279QM," has once again broken the record, and we are excited to see how much faster gaming monitors can go.
The PG259QN is so high-performance that it may no longer be difficult to determine its true value unless you are a professional e-sports player.
The PG259QN is scheduled to go on sale on December 18, 2020 (Friday), but before that, we had a chance to touch the actual product and would like to review it.

Since this monitor is designed for professional e-sports players, it was honestly difficult for an average gamer like myself to appreciate the high refresh rate.
However, the fact that the monitor does not flicker in fast-moving scenery and does not cause eye fatigue, and the fact that it is vivid and easy to see from any angle, may be a big advantage even for non-professionals.
The product will go on sale on December 18, 2020 (Friday ), and will be available at the ASUS Store, the official online store of ASUS, for 78,382 yen excluding tax.
If you are looking for a high-spec gaming monitor because you feel that a regular gaming monitor is not enough for your needs, why not consider the PG259QN, which is designed for professional e-sports players?
