“An OLED desktop computer monitor.” Those words are often used to describe what might be, what could be. In a monitor review, they are usually part of a sentence like, “Nothing short of an OLED desktop computer monitor will have more contrast than this LCD display.” When comparing panel technologies, nothing even comes close to the contrast of an OLED.

Not too long ago, OLEDs were the stuff of fantasy. With low production yields, prices for OLED panels were very high. The idea of a desktop-capable OLED display was even more fantastic. In the past two years though, OLEDs have come down to where they’re only slightly more expensive than the same sized LCD panel.

Putting an OLED on your desktop still comes with a space requirement though. No 27-inch OLED has arrived in our lab yet. But Gigabyte’s’ Aorus FO48U might be able to fit in your space. This 48-inch OLED panel looks to take on the best 4K gaming monitors and the best gaming monitors overall with a 120 Hz refresh rate, 1ms GTG response time and Adaptive-Sync for fighting for screen tears, plus HDR, DCI-P3 color and a reasonable price. At this writing, the FO48U is selling for around $1,500 , which is about what you’d pay for a 43-inch VA gaming monitor.

As a self-emissive technology, OLED, like CRT and plasma, has tremendous dynamic range. This is thanks to its ability to shut off individual pixels on the fly to create an infinitely low black level. The word infinitely is not an exaggeration. When we ran our benchmark tests on the FO48U, its black levels were unmeasurable in every case, even when there was other content on screen.

One complaint about OLEDs has been their relatively low brightness. Where premium LCDs are topping 1,000 nits, the brightest OLEDs can manage perhaps 600. In a market where many gravitate towards the brightest display (like audio buyers going for the loudest speakers), that can be a tough sell. The best HDR monitors can hit 1,000 nits or greater, but realistically, a desktop monitor doesn’t need to hit 1,000 nits to deliver killer HDR.

Color is another area where OLED shines. The FO48U claims 98% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space and more than delivers, as our testing will show. Coupled with deep contrast, this makes for a supremely colorful experience.

The FO48U supports HDR10 and Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) input but does not accept Dolby Vision. This isn’t a major factor for gaming, but if you plan to watch TV on the FO48U, it will be missed. Many 4K Blu-rays and even more streamed content is mastered in Dolby Vision.

Gamers won’t be disappointed in the FO48U’s feature set though. In addition to a 120 Hz refresh rate, the FO48U supports AMD FreeSync Premium from 48-120 Hz. It’s not Nvidia G-Sync-certified, but we also got it to run G-Sync successfully (see our instructions for How to Run G-Sync on a FreeSync Monitor).

Console gamers will appreciate the monitor’s two HDMI 2.1 inputs that support variable refresh rate (VRR). The DisplayPort input is version 1.4 and supports Display Stream Compression (DSC). as does the USB-C input. KVM functionality is included too. This lets one connect multiple computers that share a single keyboard, monitor and mouse. The FO48U pays attention to audio quality with an integrated soundbar across the bottom that contains three speakers driven by a total of 50w.

Assembly and Accessories of Gigabyte Aorus FO48U 

The FO48U unpacks like a television where you lift the box off the contents. The panel should be handled carefully as its upper section is wafer thin. Once free of the carton, two small stand legs bolt in place on either side creating a slim yet stable package. Don’t forget the remote which includes batteries. You also get an IEC power cord, USB 3.0, DisplayPort and HDMI. There is no USB-C cable, so you’ll have to source one separately.

OLED panels can be incredibly thin, and the Gigabyte Aorus FO48U takes some advantage of that. The upper 5 inches of its profile are just 4mm thick. Components dictate a large bulge covering the rest of the back that’s just 1.7 inches deep. There, you’ll find a 300mm VESA mount if you plan to hang your FO48U on the wall.

The screen is finished in a high gloss that prevents ambient light from washing out the image, but we could still see things like lamps and sunny windows reflected on the screen. The FO48U will pick up any light source in its field of view. Placement should be carefully considered to keep distracting highlights from spoiling the stunning image. The bezel is flush and just 8mm wide on the top and sides and 13mm across the bottom. When the power is on, you barely notice it. At the bottom is the aforementioned soundbar with a thin metal grill that hangs down 10mm.

Control comes by way of a tiny joystick under the front center of the panel or a small remote. You can have the on-screen display (OSD) menu show in a large size to make it easier to read from a distance.

The stand legs are small and thin but made from solid aluminum. They extend 9.8 inches front to back and provide a stable platform for the panel, which is of moderate heft at 33 pounds. There are no ergonomic adjustments as expected, but a 300mm VESA lug pattern in back means you can use aftermarket brackets for a wall mount or a substantial monitor arm.

Inputs are arranged conveniently on the left side of the panel in a recess. They’re inset far enough to keep cables from showing in front. You get two HDMI 2.1 ports, which support the Gigabyte Aorus FO48U’s full 120 Hz with Adaptive-Sync and HDR at 10-bits if your source is capable of that depth.  

A single DisplayPort 1.4 input has the same specs and includes DSC. The USB-C port can also support 120 Hz, Adaptive-Sync and 10-bit HDR and ties into the monitor’s KVM switch, which is further enhanced by one up and two downstream USB 3.0 ports. Two 3.5mm audio outputs manage headphones and powered speakers. The power cord plugs into the right side of the panel using a right-angle connector.

OSD Features of Gigabyte Aorus FO48U

The Gigabyte Aorus FO48U’s OSD is identical to the one found in all Aorus monitors with six sub-menus and eight picture modes, plus three custom memories. You can control it with the panel’s joystick, a hand-held remote or Gigabyte’s OSD Sidekick app. When an HDR10 signal is detected, four additional picture modes become available.

The Gaming menu has both an Adaptive-Sync toggle and Aim Stabilizer, Aorus’ version of a blur-reducing backlight strobe. You can’t use the two features together. Instead, you must disable Adaptive-Sync before engaging Aim Stabilizer. While OLEDs don’t have backlights, they do use sample and hold technology, like an LCD. That means motion blur is possible. In our tests, Aim Stabilizer produced smoother motion but also reduced brightness by half. We didn’t see much tearing, so Aim Stabilizer might be the better choice when playing in a dark room.

You’ll also find in the Gaming menu a Black Equalizer, which brightens shadow detail, and Super Resolution, which adds sharpness through edge enhancement.

The Gigabyte Aorus FO48U’s Green picture mode is its default and best mode. It’s perfectly accurate out of the box — enough that calibration is not only unnecessary but also offers no benefit. Tweakers can choose from five gamma presets and three color temps, plus a User mode with RGB sliders. You can also select an sRGB mode in order to view SDR content in its native color space if desired or you can specify Adobe or DCI-P3 color gamuts. Our recommendation is to leave that setting on Auto and use the large gamut for all content.

When you’ve set up the FO48U to your satisfaction, three custom memories are available for easy recall. This is a feature that every computer monitor and TV should have.

Clicking the joystick once, then going left or right, activates the Aorus gaming aids and Dashboard. Aids include a crosshair, framerate counter and timer. You get a single green reticle or can design up to three more using the OSD Sidekick app. The Dashboard interfaces with your PC through a USB connection to monitor CPU and GPU temperatures, fan speeds and usage rates, as well as the framerate and mouse CPI.

Gigabyte Aorus FO48U Calibration Settings

The Gigabyte Aorus FO48U’s Green picture mode is completely ready for use without calibration. In fact, no adjustments we tried produced better accuracy, so we left all settings at their defaults. 

Setting the max brightness level is a bit different for an OLED because it varies brightness depending on screen coverage. In other words, at the same brightness setting, a full white field is dimmer than a white window that only occupies 25% of the screen. We used window patterns for all testing and set that at 200 nits. Brightness slider values are shown below for commonly used output levels.

Here are our SDR recommended calibration settings for the Gigabyte Aorus FO48U.

Picture Mode Green
Brightness 200 nits 49
Brightness 120 nits 29
Brightness 100 nits 24
Brightness 80 nits 19
Brightness 50 nits 12 (min. 2 nits)

In HDR mode, there are four additional picture modes available. One is for HLG signals, which correspond to some international broadcasts. This standard is not currently used in the U.S. We’ll show you the measurements for HDR, HDR Game and HDR Movie on page 5, so you can see which works best for you.

Gaming and Hands-on with Gigabyte Aorus FO48U

Much has been written and discussed around the issue of OLED burn-in and image retention. Our observation is that yes, it’s possible to suffer image retention, but the problem is not as acute as it was with plasma panels. Luckily, the Gigabyte Aorus FO48U has a few features to prevent this issue.

First is the Aorus Prevention Compensation System (APCS). This routine will scan the screen every 4 hours with lines intended to even out pixel use. It takes about 5 minutes and will run when the monitor is in standby mode. Then, there’s the Aorus Organic Compensation System (AOCS). This process also runs during standby mode and takes about 1 hour. It’s a more intense scanning routine and happens every 1,500 hours. You’ll find these same processes in the newest generation of LG OLED panels. They’re very effective at preventing image retention.

The Gigabyte Aorus FO48U takes further action when static images are on the screen. Of course, it’s easy to set Windows’ power options and screen saver to prevent static images from staying on too long. But if you walk away from your Windows desktop, the screen dims 30% after 5 minutes and 50% after 10 minutes. Opening or moving a window brings your set brightness level back immediately. After 15 minutes of inactivity, the screen goes completely dark.

On to daily usage, the FO48U is an excellent computer for normal tasks. Browsing websites is a lot of fun when the pictures are nearly life-sized. Seating distance is important if you’re to work comfortably with a 48-inch monitor though. You can sit 3 feet away, but it will be hard to take in the entire image without moving your head. If you consider the THX field of view recommendation of 36-40 degrees, one should sit about 5 feet back from the FO48U.

Gameplay is another matter. You’ll find yourself collecting HDR games like stamps once you’ve tried one on the Gigabyte Aorus FO48U. The contrast and color of this monitor is addictive. Doom Eternal looked more hellish than ever in HDR with its deep red tones and black shadow areas. 120 Hz was plenty fast and responsive for our casual skills and we spent hours racking up frags. Enemies take on a whole new intensity when they’re several inches tall and right in your face. The image also looked incredibly crisp. The FO48U has an optical quality that no LCD can match.

Call of Duty: WWII has incredibly realistic textures and rich earth tones. Playing it in HDR on the Gigabyte Aorus FO48U made us want to reach out and grab a handful of dirt. Blood spatter and the shock of bullet hits had a palpable and tactile effect. If you want to become emotionally involved in a game, this monitor will oblige you.

Though best suited for HDR and extended color palettes, the FO48U also excels at older SDR titles such as Tomb Raider. We’ve played this game on many different screens and it always benefits from extra color, even though it is intended for sRGB. The Gigabyte Aorus FO48U’s sRGB mode was OK here but the full native gamut was better. Even though that represents around 150% sRGB volume, it didn’t look overblown. That’s thanks to its ideal color balance and pinpoint accuracy. The FO48U looks amazing in SDR titles with brightness set to around half its range.

Throughout all of our gameplay, video processing was excellent. We tried Aim Stabilizer, the blur-reducing backlight strobe, for some sessions. Though it made motion visibly smoother, it also made the image too dim, unless we played in a completely dark room. With Adaptive-Sync turned on and Aim Stabilizer disabled, we weren’t distracted by motion blur, and our aim was just as true. Framerates stayed solid at around 120 frames per second (fps) in all the games that we played. Having a GeForce RTX 3090 helped, but we also frequently hit a respectable 100 fps with a Radeon RX 5700 XT in both SDR and HDR modes. This is a special monitor, and it deserves a premium video card (check out Best Graphics Cards page for recommendations).

We also have to note the Gigabyte Aorus FO48U’s superb sound quality. Larger and more powerful speakers are almost always better, and the FO48U’s soundbar did not disappoint. Though it’s easy to package better audio in a large chassis like this, there’s no reason smaller monitors can’t come with soundbars. 

The FO48U really benefits from the attention paid to audio quality, which is embodied in clean and balanced tones, tight bass, distortion-free midrange and high frequency detail. It also plays plenty loud and can be turned up to ear-splitting levels without audible distortion. The sound stage is much larger than the monitor’s physical size. The OSD offers multiple sound modes: FPS, live concert, arcade and movie. They simulate different spaces appropriate to the activity. Like the stunning image, the soundbar’s addictive when gaming.

Used as a TV, the Gigabyte Aorus FO48U has a couple of limitations. As mentioned, it doesn’t support Dolby Vision. This format is common in streamed content from Netflix and other major carriers. The other omission is support for framerates other than 60p. Broadcast content from Europe is sent in 50p, and most movies are 24p. When converting these rates to 60p, some juddering occurred as the display added frames to compensate. A jumbo monitor like this, especially given its otherwise top-level image and sound quality, should function as a TV when needed.

Asus is well known for its all-in, everything-and-the-kitchen-sink gaming monitors. From the premium 32-inch Ultra HD category, I recently reviewed the PG32UQX with its mini-LED backlight at the eye-watering price of $2,900. While that may be the ultimate gaming monitor, it is out of reach for many users. For around $1,000, there are several good options,  like MSI’s MPG321UR-QD and Aorus’ FI32U. Asus has no intention of staying out of this sub-category, so it’s added the more affordable ROG Swift PG32UQ to its lineup.

Though the ROG Swift PG32UQ doesn’t have a mini-LED, or even a Full Array Local Dimming (FALD) backlight, its edge array has zone dimming capability. And it runs at the highest speed currently available from any 4K monitor: 155 Hz. Adaptive-Sync with HDR 600 and a huge color gamut round out its core features. How close does it come to the top players at a third of the price? Let’s take a look and figure out if it deserves a spot on our best 4K gaming monitors page.

  • Asus ROG Swift PG32UQ (32-inch HDR) at Amazon for $1,347

The ROG Swift PG32UQ starts with a fast IPS panel capable of 1ms Motion Picture Response Time (MPRT). That metric is a bit more generous than the more traditional Gray-to-Gray (GTG) spec, but the PG32UQ is plenty fast. And it is the first Ultra HD monitor I’ve seen that can run at 155 Hz. My response and lag tests on the next page will reveal whether that makes a visible or measurable difference.

Adaptive-Sync comes in both forms, FreeSync and G-Sync, and the PG32UQ is certified by Nvidia as G-Sync compatible (operational range is 48-155 Hz). Asus’ ELMB Sync feature is included, which means this monitor is one of the few that can run its backlight strobe blur reduction in concert with Adaptive-Sync. It makes a subtle improvement in motion resolution, but will result in a 30 percent reduction to light output.

But there is plenty of light available. I recorded over 411 nits peak in SDR mode and over 660 in HDR mode. The PG32UQ is one of the brightest 32-inch screens I’ve seen to date. And it boasts excellent HDR contrast with a measured ratio of over 9,000:1.

Color is included in a large portion as well. The gamut is so large, I measured it against the Rec.2020 reference rather than DCI-P3, of which it covers over 115%. There’s an sRGB mode available too, but honestly, it’s hard to watch and play in anything but the PG32UQ’s fully saturated, uber-gamut glory.

Gaming features include multiple adaptive overdrive levels, aiming points, sniper mode, timers, LED lighting and a flexible menu system. The PG32UQ is built to last with a rugged chassis that sports Asus’ classic Republic of Gamers styling. It’s a package well-equipped to compete with the best premium screens in the around-$1,000 category.

Assembly and Accessories

The PG32UQ ships in a large, sturdy box with its solid metal base, beefy upright and chunky panel ready to be assembled with no tools required. Asus dispensed with the lighting in the base, so there are no delicate contacts to manipulate. The LEDs are all in the panel’s large ROG logo on the back. The accessory bundle comes in its own box within the larger carton and includes a power supply brick with HDMI, DisplayPort and USB cables. A set of large bolts accommodates aftermarket mounts for the 100mm VESA lug pattern, and you get a sheet of ROG decals to adorn your high-end gaming rig.

The PG32UQ keeps it clean and simple in front with a flush bezel that’s just 8mm wide around the top and sides. A 20mm bit of trim on the bottom carries a small ROG logo and a tiny power LED at the right. The anti-glare layer performs well, keeping the image free of stray reflections. There is no visible grain or softness; the image is sharp, clean and bright.

Asus’ usual spaceship hull styling is molded lightly into the thick plastic on the back. It’s finished in a matte texture that won’t pick up light or fingerprints easily. A set of keys and a joystick form the menu controls. OSD navigation is simple and intuitive. There is also a large ROG logo on the back which can be lit hundreds of ways with colors and effects chosen in the OSD under the Aura RGB options. You can also coordinate the light show with other Asus ROG components using the Aura Sync app on your PC. A USB connection is required to enable this feature.

The side view shows the substantial upright, which offers full ergonomics: 25 degrees swivel to either side, 5/20 degrees tilt and a 100mm height adjustment. Movements exude the quality I’ve come to expect from all Asus gaming monitors. Once positioned, the PG32UQ stays solidly in place.

The input panel is tucked well up and under and includes two HDMI 2.1, one DisplayPort 1.4 with Display Stream Compression (DSC), USB 3.0 (one upstream, two down), and a 3.5mm audio jack. There are decent built-in speakers, five watts each, that play at comfortable volumes without distortion. There isn’t much bass, but the mid-range frequencies are clean and clear. To utilize the 155 Hz overclock, you’ll need to use DisplayPort. The HDMI ports work up to 144 Hz for PCs and 120 Hz at 4:4:4 color depth with consoles. FreeSync works over all three video inputs, while G-Sync is limited to DisplayPort only.

OSD Features

Pressing the PG32UQ’s joystick brings up a quick menu with access to the picture modes (Game Visual), gaming aids (GamePlus) and the full OSD.

Gaming is first up and has everything one could need to adjust video processing, access picture modes and employ gaming aids. The Overclock runs over DisplayPort only and works reliably up to 155 Hz. Variable OD (overdrive) has five levels and works effectively at reducing blur up to setting four. ELMB Sync can be engaged along with Adaptive-Sync to reduce blur even further. There is a 30% light output reduction, but turning up the brightness slider can compensate for this. There is plenty of headroom available.

GamePlus brings aids like aiming points, timers, frame counter, sniper mode and multi-display alignment marks to the table. Sniper mode magnifies the center of the screen, making long-distance targets easier to spot. The crosshairs come in three designs, appearing in red or green. The frame counter displays the current refresh rate in real-time so you can monitor system performance.

Game Visual contains the PG32UQ’s eight picture modes. Racing is the default and can be calibrated to a high standard. All modes except sRGB use the monitor’s full color gamut, which is oriented towards Rec.2020. It covers nearly 84% of that huge color space. In HDR mode there are three additional presets: Cinema, Game and Console. They cannot be adjusted, but their color accuracy is solid.

In the Image menu is a Dynamic Dimming option, which turns on the zone-dimming feature for the edge backlight. It puts the PG32UQ’s HDR contrast in between the best FALD screens and more rank-and-file monitors that don’t offer dynamic contrast. Dynamic Dimming can increase dynamic range for SDR content too. It does so effectively without masking highlight or shadow detail.

Calibration options include three color temp presets plus a user mode with RGB sliders. You also get three gamma settings. The color saturation slider is unlocked in some picture modes but not Racing, where I performed my tests.

The Aura RGB lighting offers a number of effects in all colors of the spectrum. Only the ROG logo in back lights up. You won’t find the projectors or base lighting seen in older ROG gaming monitors (and we don’t miss it). If you have the Aura Sync app installed and an active USB connection, you can synchronize the lighting of all Asus components compatible with Aura Sync, like power supplies motherboards, RAM and video cards. With all these LEDs engaged, you can be sure that low-flying aircraft will see your gaming system from miles away.

Asus PG32UQ Calibration Settings

The PG32UQ has a slightly cool-toned image in its default Racing mode but can easily be calibrated to a high standard. A few tweaks to the RGB sliders renders perfect grayscale tracking. The gamma preset defaults to 2.2 but measures a little lighter than that. I preferred the picture on the 2.5 setting, which measures around 2.3. This gives a bit more depth to the image and tames the massive color saturation. You’ll have to use the full gamut for SDR content unless you engage the sRGB mode, which looks a little flat. My recommended SDR settings are below.

When an HDR signal is input, the PG32UQ switches automatically and opens up three additional picture modes: Game, Cinema and Console. They look pretty much the same to the eye and measurements revealed only subtle differences. They cannot be calibrated but are fairly accurate.

Gaming and Hands-on

My usual pitch about the advantages of a 32-inch monitor stands for the PG32UQ. This screen size in Ultra HD resolution is great for both work and play. You can sit at a comfortable distance of three feet and work on documents and graphics without seeing the screen’s pixel structure. Density is ample at 138ppi, so even the tiniest text is rendered cleanly without jaggies. I prefer font scaling set to 150% for readability’s sake. Those with better eyes than mine might be fine with 125 or 100%. You’ll get more on the screen that way. At 150%, I can view most of a full page in Word. Excel spreadsheets show 68 rows and 40 columns without scrolling. And a 32-inch 16:9 monitor will fit on the average desktop.

Working in Photoshop is easy, with plenty of room for toolbars on the sides and top and the image occupying about 75% of the screen. If you need color management, profiles are the best way to go. The PG32UQ’s sRGB mode is reasonably accurate but cannot calibrate to a higher standard. And the monitor’s native gamut is larger than both DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB.

I was anxious to try out the 155 Hz overclock feature in a few games, so I started with Doom Eternal. This title has a bug where it does not come up at the correct resolution when first loaded on a new monitor. This meant I had to perform multiple restarts to engage 155 Hz. Once I got it running, the PG32UQ’s motion processing looked the same as what I’ve observed from other premium 144 Hz monitors. My GeForce RTX 3090 had no problem hitting 144 and 155fps with HDR engaged, but I could not see a difference from the extra 11 Hz. I would not buy this monitor solely for that feature.

What I would buy it for is its stunning color. Doom Eternal is a great test of the color red, and here, I saw deep hues only visible on a handful of monitors. The PG32UQ’s HDR color is among the very best I’ve seen. And though it is extremely saturated, there is no loss of detail. All intensity levels have the same fine detail and texture. The extra dynamic range of HDR makes highlights pop and creates a completely believable 3D effect that you want to reach out and touch.

I also tried out ELMB sync, which required me first to turn off HDR. I didn’t see enough improvement in motion smoothness to make me want to give up HDR’s extra color and contrast. The difference in image impact was night and day. Though ELMB sync is a unique and useful feature, you’ll need to try it on a game-by-game basis. It’s not always better.

I also enjoyed killer HDR in Call of Duty WWII. This title focuses more on earth tones like green and brown, and they too looked more vibrant than I’ve seen on most monitors. The added contrast was plain to see and even though highlights were bright, the overall image was never harsh or fatiguing. The PG32UQ delivers HDR on par with the very best displays.

Though I have experienced and enjoyed faster monitors at the 240 Hz level and beyond, there’s something special about Ultra HD mixed with great HDR and a large color gamut. Though the differences between the PG32UQ and other premium UHD 144 Hz displays are small, they are there. Short of an OLED like the Aorus FI48U or FALD screen like the Asus PG32UQX, you will not find a better picture at any price.
