Is the Asus ROG Swift PG348Q monitor still relevant for purchase today?

Hello everyone! I am currently looking for a new monitor for my workplace. Since the world of monitors is very wide as of 2023, my eyes have fallen so far on such manufacturers as LG Electronics, BenQ, Samsung, AOC and of course Asus (Maybe you can recommend something else, but my experience with other monitor manufacturers is quite good, so as not to consider them). As I am currently a programmer and software developer, I need a large monitor anyway (minimum 27 inches - maximum 34 inches). The resolution of my future monitor should be at least QHD or WQHD to get a good picture for such a large monitor. Everything else is not very important. Since I am also a gamer and I would like a minimum refresh rate of 85 Hz. I would be very happy to get you the best Asus models that could be suitable for me.

However, my main question is, would the Asus ROG Swift PG348Q still be relevant today? I have the option of getting this monitor at a discounted price, but I'm not sure if that would be reasonable. Knowing that he is already 6 years old, I'm not sure this will be a long-term option for me.

Please advise.

For me, whenever it comes to older gear, it really depends on what the price is compared to newer models. Luckily, monitor tech generally doesn't go obsolete as quickly as other hardware, so it's likely still relevant in some ways.

The PG348Q does seem to meet your requirements based on what you've listed, but there are some factors to potentially consider. For example, the 100 Hz refresh rate on the monitor requires a displayport connection (HDMI connection is only 50 hz).

One final thing to consider is warranty-- are you purchasing the monitor used? There are definitely some more current options from ROG, so I encourage you to check out some of the models on the ROG site or at a retailer.
