Hey what gives, it’s been more than a week and my order hasn’t arrived. Where is it?

No worries. The first thing we recommend you do is check your tracking details. It may just be that your order was held up a little.

Hey there.

If you’ve clicked on this tab, you’re obviously looking for a reason or two on why you should shop for your gaming goodies at Gamer Gear Direct, rather than those other online stores.

And we’ll (not so) humbly say there’s lots of reasons we think you should shop with us…and not hand over your hard-earned cash at one of those big box retailers like Harvey Norman or JB Hi-Fi. 

First up, we’ve got a policy here at Gamer Gear Direct we like to call…

100% customer happiness guaranteed (we mean it!)

OK, so the above title might sound a little corny to you, but it’s true.

We want you to tell your friends and family about your experience with us (and hopefully that’ll mean they visit our website, too). 

And the only way you’re going to do that is when you’re happy with our service, right?

See, we’re not one of those big box electronics stores with a multi-million marketing budget. Those companies treat you like a number. Because they can afford to! They’ve got money coming out of their ears.

We’re different. We’re a small Aussie business. Every single potential customer that hits our website is precious to us (that includes you). 

So, again, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you’re over the moon with your Gamer Gear Direct shopping experience.

Do you think Harvey Norman can promise that kind of service? Probably not.

But look, you don’t have to take our word for Here’s what our customers are saying about us…

Ashley Woolnough says: ‘I want to say a huge thank you to Blake and the team at Gamer Gear Direct. The service has been absolutely impeccable from the moment I first looked at items to the moment they were delivered. I bothered Blake quite a bit, but nothing was too much trouble and he went above and beyond to help me. 5-star service’.

Joe Platt had this to say: ‘Just want to say how awesome the gaming chair is that we bought. Amazing quality, helpful service and the fastest delivery of an online purchase. Arrived Next Day!’

And this from B. Richardson: ‘Purchased an Audeze headset and it arrived inside two days. Thanks for the fast shipping and great service!’

That’s not an exhaustive list, either. There are plenty more happy customer stories we could share with you.

But let’s move on…

Five-star customer support. We’re just an email, phone call or live chat away. We’re here to help you day or night

‘Officially’ we’re around to support you and help you out with your questions and queries between normal business hours (Mon to Fri, 9am to 5pm).

But just between us…we’re pretty much here to help you out around the clock, 7 days a week.

We don’t switch off. For example, it’s not unusual for one of our team to be helping a customer with a shipping request at 9pm at night. 

If you need a hand with anything just email us, call (03) 9000 0545 or open the live chat function and we’ll help you in any way we can.

Customer Reviews

Based on 17 reviews

Forget these few negative reviews! This monitor is the real deal! I've been waiting for something like this to come alone for years! My previous display was a 40 inch Samsung 4k TV using HDMI. FINALLY there is a 43 inch 4k computer "monitor" with DisplayPort and G-Sync compatibility at 144Hz. (mic-drop) There is zero video tearing. The G-Sync compatibility works great. The attached video is Death Stranding playing at 4k with maximum settings. My in-game FPS were in the 130 to 140 area so I know the refresh rate works great. The monitor build quality is excellent. Zero dead pixels. I have my Windows text scaling at 175% and the icons and text are super sharp. No ghosting. My only super-minor complaint are the speakers. They are okay. I don't use them much anyway because I use headphones. The monitors INCLUDES a DisplayPort cable, and HDMI cable, and a USB cable. The stand is excellent and has pads to prevent desktop damage. There is no height adjustment but the monitor does pivot up and down slightly as needed. I highly recommend this beast of a true 4k 144Hz gaming monitor!


I have had plenty of experience with very large displays. This display is very good. The picture is amazing, the product had ZERO dead pixels! The colors are vibrant and cover a very wide color gamut. You will see reviews online complaining about color smearing and ghosting, but I have not seen that at all. I use this display from 1 - 5 feet viewing distance but it would also work great as a TV. The build quality of this display is excellent. This thing is Bright! I have the brightness turned all the way down and it still will easily light up a dark room by itself.Important requirements!!!-You MUST HAVE a good high-quality display port or HDMI cable! Get one from "Cable Matters", don't rely on the one that comes in the monitor box. You can find them by doing a simple internet search, and if you don't know which cable to buy send an email to their support and ask.-Your PC must be capable of running a 4k screen!~ You won't get good performance in games without a powerful enough computer that can handle displaying this many pixels. Keep in mind, that 4k is NOT like smaller monitors, not at all. Your hardware must be up-to-snuff in order to drive this monitor.-This is NOT a monitor for the new PS5 and Xbox series X consoles. This monitor does not have the proper HDMI rating to run 120Hz for the new consoles. Your PC however can run at 144Hz if you use the display port connection and fulfill the previous two requirements.Final Thoughts, this is a great monitor, worth picking up if you have the PC hardware to run it properly.

Pamela C.

Pros: Great image quality, amazing response times, beautiful colors, very bright panel, came ready to place on desk in the box.Cons: HDR looks washed out, and bland, and certain games do not play well with adaptive sync and can flicker in some screens (GTA V mostly flickers on loading screens, pause menus, and sometimes in the game) desktop does not flicker, browser does not flicker, so obviously it is a GTA V issue.

Harold Hooper

I had a pair of Philips 40" 4k monitors, and one died. I decided to upgrade slightly on the replacement, so I bought this ASUS. I read all about the BGR sub-pixel layout causing issues, and a whole lot more... but I can tell you, this is by far the best monitor I have used. The text is crisp (I run at native resolution, no scaling), the HDR, although it's only 600, is amazing, and the FreeSync is a great boost to my gaming.Most reviews call this a gaming monitor, but I use it 10 hours a day as a productivity monitor, and it is SO much better than the other Philips I have, I'm giving away the Philips to get another of these.Your mileage may vary, but don't be sidetracked by the worrying of some reviewers. Give this a try.

Nate Cook

I use this monitor for my day-to-day productivity and for gaming. Honestly, I love it. The 144Hz, HDR1000, and G-sync all work flawlessly. Windows scaling is awful, so I use a custom scaling factor of 120%. This odd number means that things that scale well are a little sized-up, but everything that doesn't scale well (Steam, for example) stays at 100%. But this scaling factor also means that 4K on a 27" or 32" has a ton of tiny elements on-screen. For Windows, my sweet spot would be 38" 4K, but I'll live with the 43" PG43UQ. For most first-person gaming, this is too big to be comfortable at a monitor distance, but it's great for everything else.There are three issues:1) Text clarity. For whatever reason (the BGR subpixel layout is the prime suspect), text rendering is garbage with Windows 10 and the PG43UQ. On Mac OS, it's actually nice and sharp. I've tried all the tricks and adjustments in Windows, and text quality is now passable.2) Black smearing. Go watch reviews of this monitor, almost all mention it. The smearing is rough for any monitor, but ridiculously bad for a fast refresh gaming display. You wouldn't want to do twitchy first-person games on a monitor this big anyway, and I'm usually not trying to read while scrolling through text, so the smearing doesn't directly affect me.3) (specific to me) The monitor flickers to a black screen often when using DisplayPort 1. It is especially bad when switching between HDR and SDR, which happens every time I open or close an HDR game. To get it to stop flickering, I must disconnect the monitor, either by powering it off or unplugging the DisplayPort cable. I have worked around this by using DisplayPort 2.All in all, I had decided to live with points 1 and 2, and point 3 will be resolved by an RMA. Asus support was pleasant but ultimately unhelpful - I found the port issue when writing out clear steps to reproduce for an RMA. Thanks to the three year warranty and me only needing one working DisplayPort, this can wait.
