VIEWING ANGLESOur monitor uses an IPS panel. The viewing angles on offer by this display are excellent, IPS are well-known for offering the best viewing angles of the different standards. It isn’t absolutely necessary to be sat square on to the display to still experience the clearest angle.
HDRPG259QNR benefits from HDR10 and it does not disappoint in this area. Brightness, contrast and vibrancy are key attributes when we’re considering HDR and this monitor is strong in each of these sector. The shadows are deep while the highlights aren’t overexposed or blown out. PG259QNR has a 100% sRGB color gamut which is wide, and offers more than acceptable color space for a range of scenarios including media creation. In fact, it covers this with a high-level of accuracy.
GAMING PERFORMANCEIn order to examine PG259QNR properly, we loaded up some of the latest games to flex that 360Hz and to test our HDR we used titles such as Battlefield V and Resident Evil 3. The results were outstanding.
To take full advantage of 360Hz you will need to use the DP cable rather than HDMI, the latter only allows us to tap into 240Hz. This is the first time we’ve stepped up to 360Hz and we have to admit, it is silky, buttery smooth and definitely takes things up a notch considerably from the likes of 120Hz. Users may not instantly see a huge difference between 240Hz and 360Hz.
Combining the 360Hz with the ultra-fast response time of 1ms and having G-SYNC certification transfers this entire product into another dimension. Without pushing it too far, all of these features combined transform the gaming experience to one which is memorable and very satisfying.
