Asus Designo Curve MX38VC
Asus’s new 38-inch mega monitor is a superwide sight to behold and includes wireless device charging, but lacks HDR visuals.
That pixel count means you’re getting the equivalent of a 4K monitor across the horizontal, but fewer vertical pixels. The resolution and panel size combo also make for 109 pixels per inch, which isn’t particularly stellar from a pixel density perspective. A high DPI display this is not.
The panel itself is capable of 8-bits per channel of color, with FRC dithering bumping that up to 10-bit and thus the claimed 1.07 billion colours. The panel type is IPS, which bodes well in terms of viewing angles and colours. However, this isn’t a cutting edge display with a huge colour gamut, local dimming or HDR support. It’s a pretty conventional LCD monitor with a single LED backlight, maximum brightness of 300cd/m2 and contrast rated at 1,000:1.
