Previously, we shared a gift guide for the holiday season featuring laptops that are available in the ASUS and ROG Share 2023 promo. While this is a straightforward guide featuring our top laptop picks, not everyone is looking to buy a laptop for themselves or their loved ones for the holiday season. After all, laptops don’t come cheap, not to mention that some users prefer to work or play on full PC setups.
With that in mind, we’re back with another holiday gift guide, this time for PCs. Instead of talking about complete rigs though, this is a nifty gift guide that features products that are great complements to any PC setup, whether it’s for a creative professional, a gamer, or something that the whole family can benefit from
So, if you need some help with your holiday shopping (be it for your or a loved one’s PC), here is the ultimate ASUS monitors, routers, and peripherals gift guide for the 2023 Christmas season!
ASUS ProArt Displays – The Professional Monitor for Any Creative
First up, let’s explore ASUS ProArt Displays, a lineup of monitors that are excellent options for any serious creative professional.
Here we have the ASUS ProArt Display PA278QV, a professional 27-inch IPS monitor with a large WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution, a 75Hz refresh rate, and Adaptive-Sync technology. This screen’s high resolution combined with the higher refresh rate makes it a surprisingly good partner for binge-watching and gaming. Though it’s fair to say that content creation is where it truly shines.
This is thanks to the monitor’s color accuracy. According to ASUS, this display meets the international color standard 100% sRGB and 100% Rec. 709 wide color gamut. It is also Calman Verified with factory calibrated for excellent Delta E < 2 color accuracy. On top of its color accuracy ratings, the displays comes with a wide array of ports, including a Mini DisplayPort, DisplayPort, HDMI, dual-link DVI-D, audio in, and earphone jack, plus four USB 3.0 ports.
Now, if you’re looking for something for an even more discerning creator, there’s the ASUS ProArt Display PA279CRV. This is another 27-inch IPS screen. What’s different here though is that it has a 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution, meaning you get even sharper output.
All of this without sacrificing color accuracy as it has a wide color gamut with 99% DCI-P3 and 99% Adobe RGB coverage. It also has great connectivity, with DisplayPort over USB-C with 96-watt Power Delivery, DisplayPort, HDMI, and a USB hub.
ROG Peripherals – For Serious Gamers
If you’re looking to enhance your gaming rig, or if you’re gifting a family member or a loved one something to complement their gaming machine, there are also ROG peripherals that you’ll want to add to your holiday shopping list.
For starters, there’s the ROG Azoth, a custom gaming keyboard that should delight enthusiasts. It packs highly customizable hot-swappable pre-lubed ROG NX mechanical switches, ROG Keyboard stabilizers, and PBT doublehsot keycaps.
It also features a unique silicone gasket mount design with three layers of dampening foam for a unique typing experience. Plus, has three connection options: 2.4 GHz SpeedNova technology, Bluetooth, and standard wired USB.
If a mouse is what you need (or want to gift), there’s the ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition. This special edition device is an ultra-lightweight gaming mouse with a bunch of gaming-ready features.
These include a ROG AimPoint 36,000 dpi optical sensor, ROG Micro Switches rated for 70 million clicks, anti-slip mouse grip tape, and a comfortable pro-tested form factor that should be stable and easy to control when flicking and tracking,
The highlight of the mouse is no doubt its lightweight design. At only 54g, this mouse promises to be an excellent partner for fast-paced esports titles, especially for shooters where flicking is the key.
To complement this mouse, ROG also has the ROG Moonstone Ace L, a large gaming mouse pad made of durable tempered glass.
Yes, this is a glass mousepad with an ultrasmooth matte surface, meaning it should offer fast and consistent mouse slides that should satisfy even the most demanding of gamers.
ASUS Routers and Range Extenders – Comprehensive Whole Home Internet Coverage
Pro-grade monitors are fancy while gaming peripherals are flashy, but the backbone of both creative work and gaming is a reliable Wi-Fi connection. If you live in a house with some dead spots, this holiday season is a perfect time to upgrade your home Wi-Fi setup.
Both routers feature the new-gen Wi-Fi 6 standard which is faster, more efficient, and more reliable than the previous standard. What’s more, these two routers also feature Trend Micro Airprotection that blocks internet security threats for all your connected smart devices so you have more peace of mind when browsing. Finally, both routers are compatible with the ASUS AiMesh Wi-Fi system for whole-home connectivity.
Speaking of AiMesh, the ASUS ZenWifi product family features multiple router setups to choose from that promise connectivity throughout the house with no dead spots. All these options are easy to set up through the ASUS router app, all while having sleek designs that would fit seamlessly into your home.
There are four ZenWifi devices to choose from depending on your needs or router number preferences:
- ASUS ZenWiFi XD4S – Consists of three ASUS AX1800 WiFi 6 routers in white that can cover up to 4800 sq. ft. and 5+ rooms.
- ASUS ZenWiFi XD5 – Features three ASUS AX3000 WiFi 6 routers that can cover up to 5000 sq. ft. and 5+ rooms.
- ASUS ZenWiFi XD6 – This setup has two ASUS AX5400 WiFi 6 routers that can cover up to 5400 sq. ft. and 4+ rooms.
- ASUS ZenWiFi Pro XT12 – The ultimate mesh option that features two routers with a sleek design. It is a 12-stream device with combined total data rates of up to 11000 Mbps. This makes it the best choice for a household with multiple heavy bandwidth users.
With two main routers and four AiMesh systems to choose from, you have a lot of options to choose from for your tech holiday shopping needs. Great news as you can select the setup for you depending on your home internet needs.
