ASUS ROG Strix XG49VQ review: 32:9 monitor replacing two

Ultra-wide monitors with an aspect ratio of 21:9 are still new to most. These are interesting gadgets, but I can’t seem to find a suitable use for them other than pampering. Oddly enough, I’m attached to standard 16:9 dual monitor solutions, so the 32:9 ASUS ROG Strix XG49VQ was a doubly interesting experiment. Successfully? Yes and no.
