ASUS ProArt PQ22UC 21.6″ Portable UHD 4K HDR OLED Monitor

The ASUS ProArt PQ22UC is an interesting OLED monitor because it is portable and can receive both power and a video signal via USB-C. It's HDR10 compatible and offers UHD resolution plus 99% DCI/P3 gamut coverage.

Seeing it for the first time, I quickly envisioned how nice it would be to experience "personal home theater" by watching this monitor while listening to virtual surround-sound through headphones. With the advent of devices like the ProArt PQ22UC, it's a brave new world for videophiles and gamers alike.

Alright I know this is 4k UHD OLED HDR blah blah blah but did they really need to put the word portable in there as if we haven't had monitors yet available the last decade or so.....

Alright that little vent aside........... I bet you this is thing will probably be even more expensive than buying a 55 inch OLED :-I

If priced right it should be great and awesome!

That's just too small for desktop use IMO, should be at least 24" inches at minimum.

It's a JOLED screen.

Q3, bleh why does everything always take so long.

21.6" 4K is a bit silly though, you going to sit 8 inches from this thing for desktop use?

Nope. This is a new player - Samsung does 4" to 14", LGD 55"+, JOLED seems to be focused on the monitor range.
That's why it's interesting to see an actual review and how its PQ compares. I don't see an application for a 21.6" high-end display, though, it's too large for a laptop accessory (even with USB-C power) and too small for a desktop.

Soon as they put quad cores in there, I plan on getting a laptop with an OLED display - it's annoying not to be able to watch anything while on the road. Laptop LCD are seriously bad, even Apple's, they aren't even at the PQ level of midrange TVs.

Maybe JOLED will deign to hit that market too, to cover the 15"+ range. All comes down to whether they can beat Samsung's really bad pricing, of course - as an OEM item, you have to convince a laptop maker to buy your screens, not just the end user.

Ugh... That's the same size as my current display. I want larger (and not yellow lol), but not 55"....


I've been looking forward to OLED for 17 years (yes, that long), but... will Micro LED replace it?

microLED can never compete in the monitor space. Monitors require the ultimate resolution that microLED will not be able to come close to.

Could you tell me more, which exact model is it? I have a few grand set aside for a laptop, and I've specifically looked at Lenovo Yoga series, but I haven't found anything with a 15" OLED display.

Because there's quite a few people willing to pay $200,000 for a 150" screen. After all, it's just half the price of a Barco Thor projector, which won't look half as good as OLED even on a 12.5' screen, and micro-LED looks better.

There's not a lot of people willing to pay $200,000 for a 24" desktop monitor.

Micro-LED are priced per pixel, not per square foot.

You can't make individual LED's small enough to make a 30" 4K screen. Ever wonder why the mLED displays are all massive?

It's an ASUS display, so you automatically add one year to what the original release date estimate was (Summer 2018).

I'm pretty sure this display uses RGB-OLED and not the inferior W-OLED that LG's panels use, so the colors will already more life-like and color accurate than any and all of LG's W-OLED panels.



Don't make the mistake of thinking that OLED's are all the same, because they are not. RGB-OLED's use Red, Green, and Blue Light Emitters which bring a more color accurate picture than LG's W-OLED which only uses a White Light Emitter and Red, Green, and Blue Color Filters.


LG's W-OLED displays will never reach the same color accuracy and life-likeness as these RGB-OLED displays made by JOLED.


I'll be buying this Monitor as soon as it is released, because I'm sick of staring at my monitor that uses White Light (Blue Light with a Yellow Diode). It is burning my eyes, because the Blue Light spectrum is very dangerous for the eyes, however it is slightly less dangerous than UV and Violet light.


This monitor, since it uses RGB-OLED will offer the same Light Spectrum as CRT and Plasma displays, since they all use RGB light. It will also not burn in my eyes like IPS or other inferior LCD displays which all use White Light (Blue Light with a Yellow Diode). It's no wonder CRT and Plasma both offer superior image quality to LCD, because they use RGB light, not just White Light (Blue Light with a Yellow Diode). Finally there is a modern RGB display coming out!



Basically: this display is what I've been waiting for since CRT and Plasma came out.


Long live RGB-OLED!!!

Rgb-oled has arrived!

So ASUS has announced it will be releasing the ASUS ProArt PQ22UC, a 21.6″ Portable UHD 4K HDR OLED Monitor.


After doing a bit of research for a few minutes, it seems that the company manufacturing the panel for ASUS is JOLED. This company has developed a way to use RGB-OLED without the high cost or many of the drawbacks that LG and Samsung bumped into.



According to my research, the ASUS PQ22UC uses RGB-OLED and not the inferior W-OLED that LG's panels use, so the colors will already more life-like and color accurate than any and all of LG's W-OLED panels.

Don't make the mistake of thinking that OLED's are all the same, because they are not. RGB-OLED's use Red, Green, and Blue Light Emitters which bring a more color accurate picture than LG's W-OLED which only uses a White Light Emitter and Red, Green, and Blue Color Filters.

LG's W-OLED displays will never reach the same color accuracy and life-likeness as these RGB-OLED displays made by JOLED.

Finally there is a modern RGB display coming out!

Basically: this display is what I've been waiting for since CRT and Plasma came out because of it's color accuracy through RGB and the soothing effect it has for my eyes: no more blood shot eyes from that dangerous Blue Light.

Long live RGB-OLED!

Woled's are inferior but they are the only ones scalable to tv sizes atm. JOLED failed to develop a rgb oled tv. A 22" rgb oled monitor isn't going to be a game changer, sony has had one of their professional grade 30" monitor on the market for some time now.

Have you seen how much Sony's 30" Professional Monitor costs? Last time I looked it was $30K. I doubt the ASUS 21.6" will be anywhere near that price point. I believe it will be a game changer. I don't know about you but I don't want to blow $30K on some RGB-OLED monitor when I could do it for only $1K.

I wasnt talking about price points, just the technology itself, that it has existed for a while now. And then again, it's still just a 22" monitor. A game changer would be if someone can come up with a 55-65" rgb oled tv that could be doubled as a monitor, though i dont see that happening anytime in the near future.

Other than uniformity inconsistency, WOLED is a more than adequate replacement for CRT and plasma. In fact, it's the only replacement for the latter 2 in a standard TV display size today.

According to JOLED in a blog post, they can produce these ink-jet printed RGB-OLED displays for larger sized monitors including TV's, as that is what they are eventually aiming for. So we WILL see RGB-OLED TV's, as long as people actually find out about this company and support them by buying a quality RGB-OLED TV, instead of LG's cheap W-OLED TV.



They just need more publicity and support from everyone to do this, so please support them and spread the word.

Nah, I'm actually less likely to jump on any wide-eyed bandwagon that you think is just around the corner since you keep downplaying what LGD has achieved with the Xerox patents.

I don't know exactly what you mean by this. The title of this thread is "Rgb-oled has arrived!" not "I'm downplaying LG's cheap W-OLED displays".



Sheesh, some people actually NEED RGB displays so they don't do further eye damage which results in glasses, then surgery, then blindness. I'm just trying to inform people that they will be able to soon buy an RGB-OLED monitor without paying an arm and a leg.


Forums have gone downhill since the new generation of people were born...I like the old days. Far out. Everyone is so against each other when it is just this: INFORMATION!
